glFusion v1.4.1 Now Available

The team at glFusion.org is proud to announce that glFusion v1.4.1 is now available for download. This release continues our commitment to providing a secure, stable, and robust content management system.

glFusion v1.4.1 has undergone some significant security validation. Including a Web Application Assessment from HP's WebInspect tool. Initial scans did disclose some minor issues that were addressed and resolved.


We have continued our efforts to audit the code base to ensure there are no other issues. This is an on-going effort to provide both a secure and stable environment.


glFusion v1.4.1 has been well tested when running with SSL. Several minor issues were addressed to improve the overall operation and security when running under SSL. Including the ability to properly set the secure cookie setting at time of installation if the install is run under SSL. This gives you an out of the box setup that is correctly configured.

glFusion v1.4.1 has also been well tested under PHP v5.5, the latest version of PHP. Systems running PHP v5.5 should not have any issues running glFusion. There are a few items that glFusion uses that are now depreciated in PHP v5.5. These will be completely removed with the next major release of glFusion. Rest assured, these depreciated items do not hinder your site from running with the latest release of PHP.


There are several bug fixes included in this release, as well as, a few minor functionality improvements. Specifically we have integrated the embedded CKEditor WYSIWYG editor with the Smiley plugin, added the ability to use the WYSIWYG editor when editing blocks, and improved the Filemanager plugin included with CKEditor. We added the ability for each user to have their own private directory for use with the CKEditor filemanager.

Please review the Upgrade Documentation for detailed instructions on upgrading your existing site.


You should also review the What's New Page and the Template Changes Page for details on changes you will need to make when upgrading.


For first time installations, please refer to the Installation Documentation.

I love making web sites and glFusion is the best tool out there to do this. I am hopeful that I can make many other web sites for other people.
