Second pre-release for v0.9

It's been almost 3 months since Zoph 0.9pre1 has been released, a lot longer than I anticipated but I have been busy...

Two bugs were found in Zoph 0.9pre1 and they have been fixed in this release. See the changelog for more details.

Anyone running v0.9pre2 is recommended to upgrade to this version. Please report any bugs you find, so I can fix them in the next release. To upgrade, please read the upgrade instructions.... read more

First pre-release for v0.9 available

Zoph v0.9 is almost done. Since the v0.8.4 release, I've worked on killing some bugs and dealing with PHP warning messages. The work seems to be done now. Just like with previous stable releases, I am starting with one or more pre-releases, just to make sure the final v0.9 release will be as bug-free as possible. This is the first one.

Zoph 0.8.4 released

Zoph 0.8.4 is the final pre-release for Zoph 0.9. This version adds several feature improvements. More features have been added the new CLI import, which was introduced in v0.8.2. The 'bulk edit' page has been improved, both in features as in loading speed (100x faster in some cases!). The 'tree view' and 'thumb view' overview pages have been improved. Several coding style modernisation changes have been made.... read more

Zoph 0.8.3 released

Zoph 0.8.3 has been released. This is the third feature release for v0.9.

Most of the improvements in this version are related to mapping. The most important new feature is "geotagging". Geotagging allows you to use a GPS-tracker to create a track of where you were, because these devices do not only register where you were, but also when you were there. Since your digital camera also registers when a photo was taken, you can now determine exactly where a photo was taken. Of course you will need a program that can make the match for you and as of v0.8.3, Zoph is one of those programs.... read more

Zoph 0.8.0.5 and 0.8.2 released

I have created two new releases for Zoph. The first one is a bug fix release for the stable 0.8 branch. This release fixes six bugs that are not very serious, but could be very annoying. All currently known bugs have been fixed in this release. If you are running a v0.8 or v0.8.0.x release, it is recommended to upgrade to this release.

The other release is Zoph 0.8.2, which is a feature release that offers a preview on the new features for Zoph 0.9. This release introduces a completely rewritten import system. Both the web interface and the CLI interface have been redesigned and almost completely rewritten from scratch. This release is the result of 9 months of development.... read more

Serious security issue in Zoph

During development of Zoph 0.8.1, I found a privilege escalation issue that affects all versions of Zoph; this means that a user that is logged in in Zoph can perform actions that this user is not allowed to do. This includes a user that is logged in through the default user feature. You should upgrade your Zoph installation as soon as possible, if you cannot upgrade right away, you should at least disable the default user feature until you have upgraded.... read more

Zoph 0.8 released and new website

Zoph 0.8 is available on the Sourceforge site. Compared to v0.8pre3, a small bug regarding timezone support in PHP 5.1 has been fixed.

Compared to v0.7, which was released in July 2007, the list of improvements is almost endless.

Zoph also has a completely rebuild and restyled website, see http://www.zoph.org

v0.8pre3 available

I have posted the third pre-release for Zoph 0.8 to the sourceforge site. It fixes a couple of bugs, most notably the cross site scripting bug that was previously fixed in the v0.7.0.7 release.
Furthermore the translations and the documentation have been updated.
This will probably be the last pre-release of Zoph 0.8, unless serious bugs are discovered. If you discover a bug (seriously or not), please report it, as I will try to solve every known bug before the 0.8 release.

v0.7.0.7: security fix

While I was fixing some bugs in Zoph v0.8pre2, I spotted two possibilities for code injections, making Zoph vulnerable to a cross site scripting attack. I have fixed this bug and created a new release for the 0.7 stable branch: 0.7.0.7.

A fix for the v0.8pre2 release will be released soon.

Users of the 0.7 release or one of the 0.7.0.x release are encouraged to upgrade to this version. Users of a 0.7.x release should either upgrade to the 0.8pre3 release when it comes available or apply this patch. This patch should work on any Zoph version.

Posted by Jeroen Roos 2009-08-24

v0.8pre2 available

I have just posted the second pre-release for v0.8 on Sourceforge: v0.8pre2. It fixes the bugs discovered since v0.8pre1, including the security bug. All users currently running a 0.7.x or 0.8pre1 are advised to update. Users running 0.7.0.x should upgrade to 0.7.0.6 or could consider changing to this release.

v0.7.0.6: security fix

I was contacted by someone who wishes to be referred to as "y3nh4ck3r", who found a cross site scripting bug in Zoph. I have fixed this bug and created a new release for the 0.7 stable branch: 0.7.0.6.

A fix for the v0.8pre1 release will be released soon.

Users of the 0.7 release or one of the 0.7.0.x release are encouraged to upgrade to this version. Users of a 0.7.x release should either upgrade to the 0.8pre2 release when it comes available or apply this patch. This patch should work on any Zoph version.

First prerelease for v0.8

I have posted the first prerelease of Zoph v0.8 to the SourceForge site, this version serves as a release candidate for the upcoming v0.8 release.
Compared to v0.7.5, several bugs have been fixed but no new features have been added.
Users of v0.7.x releases are encouraged to upgrade to this version as it fixes all currently known bugs (except to those related to encoding / utf-8 support, those will be solved in v0.8.1).
Users of v0.7.0.x should probably stay with their current version, as v0.8pre1 should not be considered 'stable'.
A special warning to those who are still using PHP4, as of the release of v0.8, PHP4 will no longer be supported. So, if you are on PHP4 and cannot upgrade to PHP5, install this version and report any bug you find...

0.7.4 Release

Zoph 0.7.4 is an interim "feature" release that offers a preview on a few of the new features that will be available in Zoph v0.8.

It also fixes some bugs from the earlier 0.7.x released.

This release features 2 major improvements: the first is performance, all the new features in 0.7.x had demanded their toll on Zoph's performance, so I have put a lot of work in improving the performance. The second innovation is the 'group access rights', instead of giving each user seperate access rights to the albums, you can now group your users and assign the rights to the group. For those who want to stay with the current model, a script is included in the contrib dir, that will create a group for each user and assign the group the album permissions of that user.... read more

Zoph 0.7.3 released

Zoph 0.7.3. is an interim "feature" release that offers a preview on a few of the new features that will be available in Zoph v0.8.

It also fixes some bugs from 0.7.1 and 0.7.2 Finally, it includes the bugfixes from 0.7.0.5. This includes the security update.

The most important new feature in this release is the mapping support. You can now show the locations of your photos or places on a map. Thanks to Mapstraction you can easily change between 3 mapping providers: Google Maps, Yahoo Maps and Open Street Maps. It should be easy to add support for the other mapping providers Mapstraction supports later.... read more

Zoph 0.7.0.5

During development of Zoph, I found a couple of possible SQL injections. Although most are not exploitable or only exploitable by an admin user, I have created an updated release for Zoph: v0.7.0.5. I recommend evereyone upgrading to
this version. The release also includes a number of extra 'safety nets' that will make exploiting any future SQL injections a lot harder.
It also fixes a number of bugs in the 0.7 release.... read more

Zoph is a photo management system written with PHP and MySQL. Photos can appear in multiple albums and categories; the people in a photo can be labeled. Features include search, slideshows, lightboxes, email, access privileges and internationalization.

Earlier this week, I released 0.7.2, which is a feature release, there were, however some problems with that release, which are fixed in 0.7.2.1.

Zoph 0.7.1 released

Zoph 0.7.1. is an interim "feature" release that offers a preview on a few of the new features that will be available in Zoph v0.8.

Most notable changes are more configurable options to watermarks (position and amount of transparency), possibility to download a set of photos in a ZIP file and some improvement to the thumbnails for albums, categories and places.

Although this release was tested as well as possible, it is not a "stable" release and your should continue using the latest stable (0.7.0.2) if you are not comfortable using an unstable version.

v0.7.0.2: bugfix release

I have created a bugfix release for Zoph 0.7: version 0.7.0.2 that fixes a few bugs. None of them are really serious. The most important change is an update to the installation SQL script, a fix that was created by Raimund Hook. This version also includes an up to date Italian translation, thanks to Francesco Ciattaglia.

of new features have been added, Most notable new features

folder.... read more
