Patch #1 Released for V2.4.2

January 21, 2018 Tags: patch, release, bugs

This patch addresses a fatal error found in Exponent CMS v2.4.1 which prevented sending email on non-windows systems running PHP v7.0 or newer, or any system running PHP v7.0 or newer and using the php  simple mail option which is now deprecated due to security concerns. It is recommended that users re-configure their site to use SMTP mailing instead of the simple mail option under Site Configuration, or they ensure their system supports a call to '/usr/sbin/sendmail' which is the replacement for php simple mail when running on PHP v 7.0 or newer.

There are a number of changes, new features, and countless fixes...especially since our most recent update v2.4.1patch6. Most importantly, v2.4.2 brings compatibility with PHP v7.2 which was released as stable a few short weeks ago. It however removes support for PHP v5.3 and v5.4 which have been considered obsolete for a long time. We do still support web servers running PHP v5.6 and v7.0, even though each are no longer recommended. We strongly encourage all Exponent installations be upgraded to v2.4.2 as soon as practical!
