Nova 2.4 Changelog

Nova 2 Changelog

2.4.9 08 March 2017

Nova Core

  • Fixed an issue where the installer would throw an error on certain server setups.

2.4.8 25 January 2017

Nova Core

  • Updated the Nova database to allow for mission posts, personal logs, and news items of more than 65,000 characters.
  • Updated the behavior of replying to a private message from your own sent messages. Previously, it would reply to yourself, but now will reply to the original recipient. (Thanks to Williams for this update!)
  • Updated how Nova handles incrementing the version number in hopes of mitigating the "0.0.0" database version issue.

2.4.7 07 January 2017

Nova Core

  • The saved post links in the Writing Control Panel have been updated to favor the "view" mode instead of "edit" mode. This should prevent posts from being unnecessarily locked when users are just trying to read saved posts.
  • The post, log, and news posting pages have been updated with back buttons to make navigation easier.

2.4.6 28 August 2016

Nova Core

  • We've updated the gender identification selections on new installations to be more in line with social conventions. Hermaphrodite has been replaced with Transgendered/Intersex and Neuter has been replaced with Agendered/Non-Binary.

Bug Fixes

  • We've made some changes to the email class in the hopes of reducing the number of errors people are starting to see.
  • Addressed an error with assigning departments to a manifest.

2.4.5 14 November 2015

Nova Core

  • Addressed potential issue for users who are running MySQL with strict SQL mode. This would oftentimes result in a cryptic "1364 error" during installation or update, but it could also occur in other areas of the system. Thanks to Jon Matterson for his work on this issue!
  • Update the new Mail class with attempts to validate the email addresses. If they're empty or not valid email address, they'll be stripped out of the recipient list.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue where a user could update their character without a name. Either the first or last name is now required to update the character.

2.4.4 4 September 2015

Nova Core

  • Updated Nova to indicate when anything less than PHP 5.3 is on the server. Due to changes in Nova 2.4, there is now a requirement of PHP 5.3.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed wrong link to the Inbox from Sent Messages.

2.4.3 11 August 2015

Nova Core

  • Added indicator when viewing a post, log, or news items if it's a saved or pending item.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed issues with viewing non-activated posts, logs, and news items.

2.4.2 8 August 2015

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed errors when sending emails to multiple recipients.

2.4.1 7 August 2015

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed error thrown with missing method that was removed in the latest version of CodeIgniter 2.

2.4.0 7 August 2015

  • Created a new Mail wrapper class around SwiftMailer for better email handling than CodeIgniter's built-in email class. Thanks to forum user TheDrew for helping us sort through some of these issues.

Nova Core

  • Updated the controllers with the new Mail class calls.
  • We've removed all the reply-to calls with emails since more and more spam filters are checking the reply-to headers as well as the from header.
  • Added a notice to the bottom of all emails that it's an automated email and they shouldn't reply to the message.
  • Updated the manifest Javascript to remove hard-coded calls to a table structure. This has become problematic as people have begun to modify the manifest to have less traditional layouts.
  • Updated the error language file with a new error message.

Bug Fixes

  • When there is no manifest metadata, an extra space is displayed.
  • Fixed issue where users could view pending and saved mission posts, personal logs, and news items from their respective view pages.
