Vanilla 2021.012 is now available
Today marks the official release of Vanilla 2021.012.
There have been some important changes to Vanilla since Vanilla 3.0. They've been stated in recent release posts, but I'll echo them here:
- Vanilla requires at least PHP 7.2. Future versions of Vanilla will require PHP 7.4+.
- MySQL 5.7+ is required.
- Full-text indexes have been disabled by default. You can enable them by adding a
Database.FullTextIndexingkey to your config and setting it to
true. Failure to do this before upgrading will result in your full-text database indexes being lost.
There's a long change log of fixes and features, spread across the RCs and recent "gold" releases. If you're curious, you can follow them:
Last, but not least, there's Vanilla 2021.012! You can checkout its change log and download the pre-built package, over on GitHub.
