The team at glFusion.org is proud to announce that glFusion v1.4.0 is now available for download. This release continues our commitment to providing a secure and robust content management system. glFusion v1.4.0 includes several enhancements, bug fixes, and stability updates.
With glFusion v1.4.0, we are making a shift to HTML input as the standard input type. For comments, contacting users, mailing stories, HTML is now the default. You can select text mode input, but you no longer have the ability to toggle between input methods at the time you are entering text. To better support this change, we have replaced the old FCKeditor with a more modern WYSIWYG editor, CKEditor. We also offer TinyMCE as a plugin if you prefer that WYSIWYG editor. This has also driven significant updates to how HTML input is filtered. We've fixed a security issue in the filtering and also expanded the ability for you to define what HTML elements you will allow.
Over the past couple of weeks, we've all see the BOT traffic increase on our websites. Many of us saw a large number of BOTs registering on our sites. It became clear that the standard CAPTCHA implementation we used simply didn't provide the protection we need. We can't be sure, but it seems obvious that the CAPTCHA was broken where an automated system could read and properly responds to the CAPTCHA challenge. We released glFusion v1.3.2 this past weekend to improve the CAPTCHA offerings and to fix a few minor bugs.
