    XenForo 1.1.4 is the fourth maintenance release in the 1.1 series. While it's primary purpose is to fix bugs, this release also includes some small feature improvements as well. These are detailed below.

    Amongst the bug fixes, there are several minor security improvements:
    • Images are checked for certain content to ensure that the image does not contain code that could be executed with incorrect server configuration (such as in Nginx). Thanks to Chris Deeming for reporting this.
    • 1.1.4 now mitigates clickjacking attacks using X-Frame-Options. Thanks to Vikram Pawar (w4rl0ck_d0wn) for reporting this.
    • Server error logs now more aggressively filter out passwords before logging. Thanks to Slink for reporting this.
    We recommend all customers upgrade to 1.1.4 to benefit from the increased stability and security improvements.

    Feature Improvements

    Some of the feature improvements in 1.1.4 include:
    • Stronger spam prevention
    • Ability to see if there are any registrations that need to be approved from the moderator bar
    • Spam cleaning a user will automatically close any pending reports for their content
    • Read only access to registration date and last activity on profiles in the admin CP
    • Item count support for navigation tabs
    • Additional admin-only links on the front-end profile page
    Bug Fixes

    Some of the bugs fixed for 1.1.4 include:
    • No more blank pages when rebuilding templates
    • Improved PHP 5.4/5.5 compatibility
    • User group changes can be orphaned, leading to situations where automatic group changes fail
    • CSS arrows do not display nicely in Firefox in some situations
    • Added phrases used by the rating template
    • Incorrect/inconsistent CSS parsing for style properties
    • Improved handling of unknown CSS constructs for style properties
    • User confirmation records not pruned
    • Adjusted the Skype custom field to support Windows Live addresses (since they merged)
    • Conversation recipient_counts being changed in incorrect scenarios
    • Improved HTML parsing in RSS feed imports
    • Improved performance in calculating banned/discouraged IPs
    • Spam cleaner did not work correctly when used multiple times without reloading
    • Spam cleaner did not delete soft deleted posts
    • Performance improvements updating thread/attachment view counts
    • Improved performance when loading the style property editor
    • Required profile fields may be able to be skipped on registration
    See the Resolved Bug Reports forum for the full list.

    More Stable

    This release of XenForo 1.1.4 follows our principle that third-point (x.x.X) releases should always be more stable than the preceding version, so for the most part you will not find new features in 1.1.4. Major new features will be reserved for second point versions (x.X.x).

    Installation and Upgrade Instructions

    Full details for how to install and upgrade XenForo can be found in the XenForo Manual.

    Yes the TMS, though there is a fix already in the Release thread in the feedback forum. And my userbars aren't working the best but should be fixed soon.

    I'll likely need to wait for @Miner to update the style before we upgrade here.

    The Update for us was quite easy and simple. I didn't have any issues....

    the only mods i see not working properly are "Post Ratings like"....it works but it has 2 rows of the same icons allowing people to double rate the same post....

    and as far as Albums?
    My members are using the USER ALBUMS addon from Xenforo and it works perfectly well for us.
