This is a maintenance release to fix reported issues.
In addition to a strong focus on overall stability, this release contains:
- Official PHP 7 support
- Major performance improvements to Activity Streams
Version 188.8.131.52 / 184.108.40.206: This is a small maintenance update to address issues some clients had with certain URLs. We have also seen clients having issues with many third-party plugins and this update will attempt to better capture those errors.
This is the last release to officially support PHP 5.5 which is now completely unsupported by PHP. If your web host is still using PHP 5.5 you should contact them to upgrade to either PHP 5.6 or PHP 7.0.
Information for 3rd party developers
If your application defines language strings for the names of content types with an indefinite article (which use the prefix "__indefart_"), for example:
'__indefart_post' => "a post in a topic", '__indefart_topic' => "a topic", '__indefart_answer' => "an answer to a question", '__indefart_question' => "a question",
You must add matching strings which provide the name of the content type as it would appear with (but not including) the definite article using the "__defart_" prefix:
'__defart_post' => "post in a topic", '__defart_topic' => "topic", '__defart_answer' => "answer to a question", '__defart_question' => "question",

- IPAddresses extensions can now define two methods: supportedInAcp() and supportedInModCp(), both of which can return a boolean value to indicate if that extension should show in the AdminCP IP address lookup and ModCP IP address lookup respectively. If undefined, it behaves as if true is returned.
