2.1.1 Released

Version 2.1.1 of the component and modules have been released; an upgrade is also available for 2.1.0 users.

Notable changes:

  • Works with PHP 4.
  • Reviews now have a name field. This will be used in the page title and as the displayed text in the top and latest modules.

If you are upgrading from 2.0.7 you will need to perform the database upgrade from patch 2.0.7 to 2.1.0 first, then you can apply the full 2.1.0 to 2.1.1 patch (file and database).
If you are upgrading make sure you backup your files and database first. Once upgraded make sure your review created dates are correct and check that each review has a sensible name (new field).
