After a tough week of intensive testing and bug-fixing the upcoming PHP-Fusion 7.01 version we are now ready with the next (and hopefully last) Release Candidate version. All bugs and errors should now be fixed but we are still looking for more to be absolutely certain that the final version is as good and flawless as possible.

How to upgrade from RC2?
The new Release Candidate version requires a database upgrade which is located in db_updates/db_update 10-06-09.txt. This should be copied into a Custom Page and be previewed, not saved in order to upgrade your database correctly.

// Alter news table and add medium image field
$result = dbquery("ALTER TABLE ".DB_NEWS." ADD news_image_t2 VARCHAR(100) NOT NULL DEFAULT '' AFTER news_image_t1");

// Alter tables and add hidden fields
$result = dbquery("ALTER TABLE ".DB_COMMENTS." ADD comment_hidden TINYINT(1) UNSIGNED NOT NULL DEFAULT '0'");
$result = dbquery("ALTER TABLE ".DB_SHOUTBOX." ADD shout_hidden TINYINT(1) UNSIGNED NOT NULL DEFAULT '0'");
$result = dbquery("ALTER TABLE ".DB_THREADS." ADD thread_hidden TINYINT(1) UNSIGNED NOT NULL DEFAULT '0'");
$result = dbquery("ALTER TABLE ".DB_POSTS." ADD post_hidden TINYINT(1) UNSIGNED NOT NULL DEFAULT '0'");

// Insert new settings
$result = dbquery("INSERT INTO ".DB_SETTINGS." (settings_name, settings_value) VALUES ('news_photo_w', '400')");
$result = dbquery("INSERT INTO ".DB_SETTINGS." (settings_name, settings_value) VALUES ('news_photo_h', '300')");
$result = dbquery("INSERT INTO ".DB_SETTINGS." (settings_name, settings_value) VALUES ('news_image_frontpage', '0')");
$result = dbquery("INSERT INTO ".DB_SETTINGS." (settings_name, settings_value) VALUES ('news_image_readmore', '0')");
$result = dbquery("INSERT INTO ".DB_SETTINGS." (settings_name, settings_value) VALUES ('deactivation_action', '0')");

// Update admin settings pages
$result = dbquery("SELECT * FROM ".DB_ADMIN." WHERE admin_page='4'");
while ($data = dbarray($result)) {
$newname = str_replace(" Settings", "", $data['admin_title']);
$result2 = dbquery("UPDATE ".DB_ADMIN." SET admin_title='".$newname."' WHERE admin_id='".$data['admin_id']."'");

Who should use this version?
Release Candidate versions are for developers and experienced users who want to help testing the new version. Use it at your own risk.

What should you focus on testing?
We want everyone who is testing the RC3 version to focus on testing the setup (setting up a site from scratch, installing for first time) and upgrade from PHP-Fusion v7.00.xx (upgrade from v7.00) and PHP-Fusion v6.01.xx (upgrade from v6.01) to make sure the setup and upgrade scripts are working correctly.
