Friday, November 22, 2019 Tags: patch, release, bugs

NOTE: DO NOT INSTALL THIS PATCH ON A SERVER RUNNING PHP v5.5.x!!! Your web site will no longer run! PHP versions older than v5.6 are very obsolete and we do not support them. The next version may also remove support for PHP v5.6 and v7.0 since they are considered obsolete.

This patch addresses several regression issues which prevent some features from working and updates a number of 3rd party libraries in an effort to be more PHP v7.4 compliant. All Exponent CMS users running at least PHP version 5.6 are encouraged to move their installations to v2.5.0 and to install this patch!! Patch #2 to v2.5.0 is found at
