The vBulletin team is always keen to stay on top of newly discovered problems in the software and when a potential data-loss flaw was discovered in vBulletin 3.6.1 a patch was released within hours.
This release includes that patch, along with fixes for a number of other problems and glitches that have been found along the way.
Although this is not a security-driven release, it does nonetheless contain resolutions for several important bugs and we would recommend that all customers upgrade to 3.6.2 at their earliest convenience.
PHP and MySQL Requirements
Please note that vBulletin 3.6.x requires at least PHP 4.3.3 and MySQL 4.0.16 or later.
Installing or Upgrading vBulletin
Please see the appropriate manual sections: Installing vBulletin and Upgrading vBulletin.
Some templates have changed since previous versions of vBulletin (3.5.x and 3.6.x) in order to accommodate new features. As a result, you will need to revert several templates or some areas of your board will not function.
If you are currently running 3.6.1, you may see below for a list of template changes between 3.6.1 and 3.6.2.
