    This is the rough changelog.

    A detailed release notes for this version will be provided and updated on this page later today.


 The following changes and or features were added

  * Revamp of the Bruteforce protection system. The system now supports multiple contexts with configurable trigger times and ban times for each.

  * Name searches are now brute-force limited to prevent attempted database exports.

  * Fan name only returns in searches if the search request returns more than one result.

  * The search algorithm used is now much more strict and will require a more exact name match to find any results.

  * Support for $_SESSION['01_get_uid_v2']['asteriskForRegisteredGuests'] was added. Set this to false and the * will no longer display by users' names if registered.



Before starting an upgrade, we recommend that you backup your Convention Master database and files.
To perform the upgrade, perform an SVN update to the folder that contains your Convention Master installation:
$ svn up /path/to/convention_master
Then login to the staff console [] with an account that has the "Perform DB and System Upgrades" permission to automatically trigger any pending schema updates. DO NOT FORGET THIS STEP, as it will leave your install in a locked upgrade state.
