Last night I released FanPress CM 4.0.3 (to be exact, it's v4.0.3-pl1 due to a last minute bugfix).

  • This release includes changes in the way how to connect to the database. As of now, FPCM is using a persistent connection. This may increase the speed in most cases due to reduced overhead.
  • Another change was made in view-object, which is using PHP methode "extract" as of now to internally assign variables.
  • The new version.txt is handled more propperly to avoid any newlines and so on in version information.
  • New and existing users can be informed about their user account information (including password) while save changes. Just enable to new checkbox in the main toolbar.
  • The size of packages will be displayed in web- and cli-based updates if provided.

See below for update- and install-packages.
