Introducing the new vBulletin Issue Tracker.

Yesterday, we switched our issue tracker from JIRA to Bug Genie. Due to licensing changes, it wasn't feasible to continue using JIRA and allow customers access to the issue track. Switching to Bug Genie allows us to provide a more modern interface and maintain issue visibility to customers. While making the migration, it was decided to only move the open vBulletin 5 issues to Bug Genie. This contains everything that we are currently working on and will work on in the future.

Accessing the Issue Tracker is done through the same methods. You need a vBulletin.com forum account and after logging in at the forums, you can visit https://tracker.vbulletin.com. The system will automatically log you into the Issue Tracker. To create a new issue, click on the "Report an Issue" button in the center of the header.Each issue should have the same VBV identifier that it had in JIRA. Old JIRA bookmarks should automatically redirect. If you don't have the complete URL, you can search for these issues by typing in their VBV ID in the search box.
If you want to see what we are looking working on currently, please visit the vBulletin 5 Roadmap page.
You can view the issues that you have reported by using the user menu that drops down from your avatar in the top right corner.
Subscriptions or Watched status was something we could not transfer. However you can still subscribe to individual issues by clicking the star icon in the header of each issue.
Attachments didn't transfer but we will maintain the attachments for each issue internally.
New issues can be created with Markdown or MediaWiki Syntax to allow for a richer expression of ideas and bugs.
The new system also allows for drag and drop to add attachments.

vBulletin 5.4.2 Alpha 4 is now available.

vBulletin 5.4.2 Alpha 4 is now available to licensed customers. This is a development release and should not be used in production environments.

Global Palette
This new set of thirteen style variables will allow you to quickly and easily create new basic styles. Through inheritance and carefully crafted algorithms, the changes made here are applied throughout the site while maintaining hue changes as closely as possible. Each of the new variables includes a description that details which items it affects in your Style. For fine-tuning, all the other style variables are still available.

Dark Theme
Building on the recent style work that we have completed, we are introducing a Dark Theme. This theme is a great starting point for gaming and technology sites. Though it can be used for any type of vBulletin site. The new theme takes advantage of SVG Icons, CSS Gradients and the new Global Palette to provide an all-encompassing experience.

Google Login
Google has been added to the list of Third-Party Login Providers. This is implemented as an Addon Product within the vBulletin download. This will allow it to behave like the Twitter login functionality added in vBulletin 5.4.1.

Other Issues[VBV-9701] - Remove Redirects in topic administrative menu has no effect
[VBV-18368] - Facebook Button not showing on login popup on Responsive
[VBV-18117] - Non blog owners cannot report blog comments
[VBV-18361] - Placeholder text color stylevar doesn't work in modern Firefox and Edge
[VBV-18448, 18450, 18451, 18458] - Several obsolete and unused tables have been removed from the database.

For a complete list of resolved issues please see: http://tracker.vbulletin.com/secure/...&version=11738

PHP 5.6.X Deprecation
We will be dropping support for PHP 5.6.X at the end of 2018. This coincides with the end of life status of PHP 5.6.X. We recommend that customers upgrade to PHP 7.1 or higher as soon as possible.

System Requirements
Minimum PHP Version: 5.6.30
Minimum MySQL Version: 5.5.8

Recommended PHP Version: 7.1 or higher
Recommended MySQL Version: 5.7.7 or higher
Recommended MariaDB Version: 10+

We are looking for an Arabic Translator for the vBulletin 5.x Core product.

In order to expand the language offerings for vBulletin 5.X and improve the product, we are looking for an Arabic translator. This work will involve translating the default English phrases to Arabic. You will also work alongside developers to help improve the translation process through our issue tracking system.

If you are interested and are fluent in Arabic and English, please send your qualifications via email to support@vbulletin.com.

vBulletin 5.4.1 Connect is now available.

vBulletin 5.4.1 is now available to licensed customers.

[h2]Third-Party Authorization[h2]
The login/authorization system has been reworked to allow third-party logins beyond Facebook. This is a modular system and can be expanded via the Package system in vBulletin. This will allow sites to create custom authentication systems that fit the needs of their users. We've included Twitter OAuth as a working example of how to use the system. Users can connect their accounts to multiple third-party sites.

Twitter Authentication
vBulletin can now connect to Twitter's OAuth system to allow users to login. Once configured in the AdminCP, you can allow users to login to your site using Twitter. During the first login, if the user does not have a vBulletin account, they will be directed to the registration screen to create one. After that time the user can use their Twitter credentials to log into the system regularly.

Quick Twitter Configuration
This is a quick setup for configuring Twitter Login within vBulletin 5.4.1
- If you do not already have a twitter account, you need to create one. https://twitter.com
- Create an app for your twitter account. https://apps.twitter.com/app/new
- Fill in the "Name", "Description", "Website", and "Callback URL" fields.
- For the "Callback URL" field, it should be {forumurl}/twitterlogin/auth_callback (e.g.
https://yourdomain.com/yourforum/twi.../auth_callback )
- Check App Settings Go to the application settings (e.g. https://apps.twitter.com/app/12345/settings where 12345 references the app created in 2)
and check "Allow this application to be used to Sign in with Twitter"
- In your AdminCP go to Settings -> Options -> Thirdparty Login Options
- Enable Twitter Login
- Enter in your Consumer Key (API KEY) and Consumer Secret (API Secret) values obtained from Twitter.

See http://tracker.vbulletin.com/browse/VBV-18253 for more information.

CSS Gradient Backgrounds
Continuing our effort to allow easier style customizations, we have replaced the image based gradients in vBulletin 5 with CSS Gradients. This is controlled by existing Style Variable. Gradients are an extension of the Background Style Variables. Gradients can be combined with background colors and images to create unique effects and can be applied to any element. Users can choose the type of gradient (e.g. linear, radial), the direction of the gradient, plus two colors (start and end). More advanced gradients can be created using your style's additional CSS template. To learn about CSS Gradients please visit https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/..._CSS_gradients.

The new options on Background Style Variables are:
- Gradient Type: Linear, Radial, Repeating Linear Gradient, and Repeating Radial Gradient
- Gradient Direction: To Top, To Top Right, To Right, To Bottom Right, To Bottom, To Bottom Left, To Left, and To Top Left,
- Gradient Start Color: Uses the standard color palette tool. Accepts the same color values as any color field with the Style Variable system.
- Gradient End Color: Uses the standard color palette tool. Accepts the same color values as any color field with the Style Variable system.

Post Moderation
Post Moderation Permissions have been updated. The logic for "Require Moderation for Posts" was backward and caused issues with inheritance. This has been updated. The permission is now labeled "Skip Moderation for Posts". The value would be Yes for those who should be able to post directly and No for those you want to moderate. The duplicate permission of "Follow Channel Moderation Rules" has been removed from the system. These changes bring this permission in line with inheritance and enforce that a Yes overrides a No when a user is in multiple usergroups. If you moderate user posts, please review these permissions after the upgrade.

Search Results
A number of items could appear in search results that shouldn't. These include private messages and visitor messages. While users only see the items they have permission to see, this is confusing. Often these linked to the wrong location as well. This has been resolved and these items should not show up in search results. In addition, Media Albums should properly link to the user's profile instead of the /special/albums channel.

Removed Files
A number of unused image files have been removed from the download package. You can find the list here: http://tracker.vbulletin.com/browse/VBV-18206

Other Issues
- Navigation Tabs can wrap at smaller screen sizes.
- Custom Usergroup Permissions Sanitized out from AdminCP
- Responsive: Top Pagination on Search Results redirects to forum home.
- Navigation bar selected tab URL-based matching fails when using absolute URLs

A full list of issues resolved can be seen here: http://tracker.vbulletin.com/secure/...&version=11723


System Requirements
Minimum PHP Version: 5.6.0
Minimum MySQL Version: 5.5.8

Recommended PHP Version: 7.1 or higher
Recommended MySQL Version: 5.7.0 or higher
Recommended MariaDB Version: 10+

Current Version Support ScheduleActive Version - 5.4.1
