Vanilla 2.6 is here! It includes security fixes and requires PHP 7.0. We have therefore ALSO released Vanilla 2.5.2 with security patches if you are still on PHP 5.6 to give you additional time to upgrade.

Security update releases file list (2.5.1)

Hello Vanilla
core-2.5 installed (no addons (plugins)), 2 users, non production.

Does every file in the 2.5.1 security release have to be uploaded (overwrote)? Or is there a list of files that can be uploaded to satisfy security fix?

I'm using a free hosting service to self-host, and with most free services there are restrictions. In this case file size limits, and zip file upload/extraction features disabled. FTP the complete release is very time consuming, though obtainable. I would think the time factor leaves me no recourse "deny from all" during this process. If there was a short security update file list, upgrading would be simpler for restricted users.

I know open.vanilla is a community project with little to no funding. My thanks is not enough gratuity, for the amazing job being done. Contributing has eluded me so far. I have managed to get it up and running on the free services. Some vanilla .htaccess config changes, nothing really to contribute so far.
