New Security Updates Released and Strongly Recommended

Author: Gary Cunningham-Lee - Published

Security updates are now available for several Tiki versions — Tiki 25x, Tiki 24x LTS, Tiki 21x LTS, and Tiki 18x LTS — and users of any of these versions are strongly recommended to update their websites. Please get the latest-version files at the respective links.

Note that other Tiki versions, such as Tiki 15 or Tiki 20, did not receive these security fixes, so any site using such versions should be upgraded to the appropriate updated version.

The updates follow a security audit by Egidio Romano (https://karmainsecurity.com), and we would like to thank him very much for this work.

Each year, Open Source developers from around the world gather in Brussels to be a part of FOSDEM (Free and Open Source Software Developers' European Meeting). Since 2009, Tiki has been a frequent participant at FOSDEM, and once again in 2023 Tiki developers are taking part.

In the FOSDEM23 Collab Dev Room Tiki Session, to highlight one important new development in Tiki, Jonny Bradley will talk about "The Relentless March of Markdown" (https://fosdem.org/2023/schedule/event/collab_tiki/) as "Tiki Flavored Markdown" is being honed to eventually replace Tiki's native wiki syntax.

A TikiFest, a tradition in the Tiki community as developers and users and other interested people come together, is also being held in conjunction with FOSDEM 2023. Anyone in the area is welcome to join in. Information is at https://tiki.org/TikiFestFosdem2023. And there will be an online component in the form of a FOSDEM 2023 Tiki Roundtable Meeting — anyone who would like to log in to this virtual get-together is very welcome. Information is at https://tiki.org/Roundtable-Meeting-2023-01 .

Biggest Tiki Release Ever: Tiki 25

Author: Gary Cunningham-Lee - Published

Tiki 25, our biggest release ever in terms of new features and technical upgrades, was completed after nine months of intense development, a fitting conclusion to Tiki's 20th year of continuous development.

Some Tiki releases were characterized by big new features, some by big revamps of existing features, and some by big interface upgrades. Tiki 25 is notable for advancing in all three of these ways.

This release is available for download or installation via git or Tiki Manager. The PHP requirement remains at version 7.4. See https://doc.tiki.org/Tiki25 for full details.

Many thanks to all who contributed to bringing Tiki 25 to completion at a challenging time, demonstrating the antifragility of our "wiki way" of software development.

Read on for more specifics about version 25 of Tiki.

Subversion updates for all Tiki versions ending January 2023

Author: Gary Cunningham-Lee - Published

Subversion (SVN) updates for all versions of Tiki will end in January, 2023. The Git and SVN combined workflow will be terminated, and Git will be the sole revision control system used by Tiki. The project's code developers are already using Git exclusively, but anyone using SVN for deployment will need to switch to Git for Tiki code updates, such as by using Tiki Manager.

End of service life approaching for Tiki 18 - what options do you have?

Author: Gary Cunningham-Lee - Published

Tiki 18 LTS was first released in January of 2018 and so in January, 2023 it will reach the end of its service life. This means it will no longer be maintained by the Tiki Community, and no longer receive security fixes or feature updates. Tiki 18 users are urged to upgrade their site to the latest Tiki Long-Term Support (LTS) version. Organizations that for some reason choose to continue using Tiki 18 can seek professional enterprise support from a Tiki consultant.

Follow-up release: Tiki 24.2 - please update Tiki 24.1 websites

Author: Gary Cunningham-Lee - Published

Tiki 24.2 was released on September 23, a quick but necessary update to the most advanced Tiki Long-Term Support version. Tiki 24.1 was released just a month ago, but websites using that version should be updated to version 24.2. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by the timing of this update.

New Tiki Releases: 18.9 LTS, 21.6 LTS, 23.2 and 24.1 LTS

Author: Gary Cunningham-Lee - Published

On August 23, 2022, Tiki 18.9 LTS, Tiki 23.2 and Tiki 24.1 LTS were released, and Tiki 21.6 LTS was released the next day. These releases bring functional enhancements, bug fixes and security updates.

Tiki 24.1 LTS has received improvements and enhancements in trackers, calendars, web mail, newsletters, toolbars, wiki structures (page sets), French translations and many other areas.

For Tiki 21.6 LTS, there was some cleanup of old code as well as miscellaneous minor fixes and enhancements.

For users of Tiki 23, the update includes improvements and fixes in wiki plugins, trackers, maps, CKEditor functions, and user registration, among others. This is essentially an end-of-life release so users of Tiki 23 should consider upgrading to Tiki 24.

Tiki 18 LTS was updated for probably the last time as it is approaching the end of its service life. For more information, please see End of service life approaching for Tiki 18 - what options do you have?.

The releases include a fix for a security vulnerability reported by Egidio Romano (aka EgiX), whom we deeply thank for his detailed report.

Tiki Project Welcomes New Administrators

Author: Gary Cunningham-Lee - Published

Tiki Wiki CMS Groupware is an organic self-governing project that does things "the wiki way" and, in this spirit, when it's time to find people to join the group of project administrators, we draw from the community or active participants who can contribute time and effort to help with the guidance and direction of the project.

At this time, the Admin Group of the Tiki Software Community Association is pleased to announce the addition of two new members, Habiba Shahbaz and Roberto Kirschbaum. Habiba is bringing her unique skillset to keep the wheels of project administration turning smoothly, and Roberto has been actively contributing his coding skills, managing releases, and participating in community meetings. We are very pleased to make this announcement, and thanks again to the new admins for joining as we look forward to a great 2022.

Another administration change to announce is that Bilal Siddiq has resigned from the administrators group to devote more time to his other pursuits. We thank Bilal for his time in the group and wish him the best.
