The Tiki Community is pleased to announce the latest stable release - Tiki 17.0 aka Zeta Boötis. This update includes many new features and code improvements, as well as security fixes.

New external libraries integrated as features include H5P, the open source platform for creating, sharing, and reusing interactive HMTL5 content; CasperJS, a browser navigation scripting and testing utility written in Javascript for PhantomJS or SlimerJS; and Exposé IDS (intrusion detection system).

Feature advancements include a massive improvement in PDF generation via mPDF, tracker additions and enhancements including a more versatile user selector field type, typography enhancements based on PHP SmartyPants, and a number of new wiki plugins.

Get Tiki 17.0 at the download page.

It is time to update your Tiki ! (Tiki 16.1, 15.3 and 12.10 released)

Bernard Sfez -

A new breed of Tiki has been released a week ago and the Tiki Community urge every user to update as it solve critical security issues. LTS (Long Term Services) versions are concerned, 12.x and 15.x, as well as the under going development 16.x branch so you got no excuses. With so many improvement and a few regression and bug fixes it is in your best interest to upgrade as those version not only contain security fixes but hundreds of small improvement, enhancement and regressions fixes.

The process is pretty smooth and doesn’t require that much knowledge thanks to the Tiki Install/Update process and your data will be safer as well as your files. As usual do backup of your database and if you feel it is too complicate for you ask from the Tiki Community for help, contact me or check the Tiki consultant list to have it done.

Skype being heavily targeted this end of year

Bernard Sfez -

Skype the popular text, voice and video communicator has being targeted several time on several platform since October 2016.
If you were on Windows and Android it is now several weeks you are urged to update your version of Skype. Since an old backdoor was also found (by Trustwave’s SpiderLabs analysts) on Mac OSX version it seem that everyone should update skype, period.

Skype, acquired by Microsoft for $8.5 billions in 2011 was born in 2003 (only) but became rapidly a very commonly used application with 300 millions of users, around 20% of adult Internet users are Skype aficionados! With such penetration, simple breach or hack have a huge impact on the entire community. Not infected system are getting spammed and must defend themselves or be defended while all this have a cost and decrease Internet performances. The virus infection come with a slow wave propagation. While this may fool some of us (we are not affected at the same time) this give a good advantage for those who are away from the source and by the time the virus or hack affect the system that they are connected to or may received information from they should have updated or upgraded their own application.
