Will there be a platform update.?
Exclusive
Exclusive Feb 11
Not Sure, but I'm working on updates for my private Oxwall Fork...


Smarty can also be updated to Latest version 3.1.33 to eliminate a few issues and eliminate warning regarding php each() deprecation.

https://github.com/smarty-php/smarty


Anyone running Oxwall under PHP 7.2 will be familiar with this Warning message:


[Notice] Message: The each() function is deprecated. This message will be suppressed on further calls File: /var/www/html/scene/sc_libraries/vendor/smarty/smarty/libs/sysplugins/smarty_internal_compilebase.php Line:78

Updating Smarty removes this deprecated each() function...


I may make a plugin for this, but I would suspect Oxwalls next release will cover this.

We have updated a website to 1.8.5 trough the website https://www.chamial.com/oxwall-new-updates/ and that went without problems.

Then we got the message on the website that there was a platform update.

We have also implemented this update, so that the website now runs under the version "Platform version 1.8.6 (build 10805)".

Up untill now, we do not experience any problems yet.

We do think that the update was carried out by Chamial and not from Oxwall.

How do you update smarty?

Grab the release you want (3.1.33 is latest and working):

https://github.com/smarty-php/smarty/releases


Unzip to contents of smarty directory in zip (smarty-3.1.33/*) to :


ow_libraries/vendor/smarty/smarty/


Should I make a plugin for this or is this simple and straight forward enough for everyone?

Smarty updated, but we see no difference LOL.

We can see the difference in the folders.

1 folder (lexer) is apparently not updated, plus 2 files to know:

.travis.yml

coping.lib

Removes deprecated each() usage...

Of course.? LOL


You've lost me already, Zach.

I am not a developer, but I like to learn, that's why I try things out.

This doesn't really matter at the moment until the each() function is removed from PHP (7.3 they are saying?.)


For those running 7.2 it removes error / warning messages related to its deprecation.


Basically means Smarty is ready for future versions of PHP (7.3+) and prevents Oxwall's Smarty system from breaking in the future.


I'm working on OxBackup and OxUpdater that pulls latest Oxwall version from github, installs updates and updates Smarty and possibly other vendor libraries once I have a chance to test further updates.
