Greymatter version hotfix available for download

A hotfix to be applied on top of the latest 1.7.2 release of the Greymatter weblog software has been released this evening. The fix is to correct a performance issue found during a site rebuild after installing version 1.7.2. The new GreyMatter download should be used for all new installations and for upgrades unless you have already upgraded to version 1.7.2. In this case simply extract the gm-library.cgi file and replace the original one. This is summarised as:

Installing from scratch - use complete install
Upgrading from 1.7.1 and below - use complete install
upgrading from 1.7.2 - copy the gm-library.cgi from and replace the one installed with 1.7.2

GreyMatter 1.7.2 released

A new version of the GreyMatter software, version 1.7.2 has been released today. The main software download site has just been updated to add the new zip and tar files. The zip is broken into two files purely because of file size issues on the free download site also used, so these files have been reflected on my site for the download. The file contents for the two zip files are the same as the tar.gz file.

Version 1.7.2 brings the following changes (from the changelog):

=== 1.7.2 ===

* Issue with check execute bit on windows with Active perl, rolling back feature

* Updated install, manual, and developer documents, fixing typos, adding clarifications.

* Refactored gm_formatentry to Gm_Core

* Refactored Gm_Storage methods to stop (die) on required params, instead of assuming defaults

* Truncated search parameter to 35 characters to try and limit attacks

* UPDATED FEATURE: Protect author now has an exact and loose option:
