    vBulletin 3.8.2

    vBulletin 3.8.2 is a maintenance release for the vBulletin 3.8 series, which addresses various issues found since 3.8.1 was releases. Maintenance releases follow our scheduled release policy.

    Some of the issues fixed include:
    • Social group dicussion email notifications don't always work (27226)
    • Access masks not reset properly with paid subscriptions (27385)
    • Friend requests received by users that are in "Tachy Goes to Coventry" (27213)
    • Profile field category privacy ignored in "About Me" tab (27453)
    • BB code case maintained when not parsed (27433)
    • External.php feeds don't handle thread]/post BB code properly (27276)
    • Avatars show up in social groups/visitor messages when users don't have permission (27369)
    A full list can be found in the bug tracker.

    Social Group Subscriptions Improved

    In 3.8.1, social group subscriptions were disabled because of confusion over the functionality they provided. In 3.8.2, they have been improved and re-enabled. When subscribing to a group, you can now choose to receive a daily or weekly digest of the discussions that happen within that group. You can still choose to not receive any email notifications when subscribing to a group.

    Group subscriptions which were created before 3.8.2 will not automatically send email notifications. These users can modify their existing subscriptions or resubscribe to enable email notification.

    Upgrading from Previous Versions

    3.8.2 is a maintenance release. We recommend that all customers running prior versions of vBulletin 3.8 upgrade to benefit from bug fixes and stability improvements.

    Full instructions for upgrading vBulletin are available here.


    PHP and MySQL Requirements

    Please note that vBulletin 3.8.x requires at least PHP 4.3.3 and MySQL 4.0.16 or later.

    However, we recommend that vBulletin 3.8.x is run on PHP 5.2.9 with APC (or a similar opcode cache) and MySQL 5.1.32 for best performance and stability.


    End of Life for PHP 4

    PHP 4 has now reached its end of life. We strongly recommend that customers update their servers to PHP 5.2.9 if they are still running PHP 4. vBulletin 3.8.x supports PHP 5 without any problems, though you may need to disable strict mode for MySQL, see here on how to enable 'force_sql_mode'.

    Note: We will continue to support PHP 4 in the vBulletin 3 series.


    Download vBulletin 3.8.2

    As usual, vBulletin 3.8.2 is available for all customers with valid, active licenses to download from the vBulletin Members' Area.

          An error crept into 3.8.2 that prevents you from creating a new user within the admin control panel. The package has been updated to fix this issue as of this post; the updated file is admincp/user.php.

          For a manual fix, please see this bug report.
