v2.3.6 pulled for critical error!

December 26, 2015 Tags: bugs

We've pulled the v2.3.6 release package and recommend you NOT install it!  Due to the holidays, v2.3.7 will not be released until after January 1st.  The new security fix unexpectedly removes all styling from edited WYSIWYG text when saved...which is basically how the WYSIWYG editor does most of its magic. Additionally, activating the new enhanced password hashing (also in v2.3.5) will corrupt passwords and prevent logging on after the password is updated (a database structure issue)  We already have fixes for these issues and will release a version 2.3.7 with the fixes and possibly another ajax paging fix.  We are sorry for this inconvenience.
