Version 2.6.0 Released

Friday, December 18, 2020 Tags: release, bugs

Version 2.6.0 or 'Quarantined Quandary' is now under the tree in time for Christmas! We added support for PHP v7.4 and initial support for PHP v8.0 and Twitter Bootstrap v5 (optional download required). We also fixed quite a number of issues since the last patch especially with MySQL v5.7 'strict' mode., and some other things have been tweaked. We've also added an optional simplified permissions system and optional support for CDN links to our major libraries. If your server PHP version supports it (v5.6.0 or later), we strongly encourage all Exponent installations be upgraded to v2.6.0 as soon as practical!

As with all previous upgrades, we highly recommend you test your system and custom theme before upgrading a production server, especially if jumping over minor version numbers. An article about updating a custom theme can be found here. Several articles about upgrading can be found here.
