I upgraded the Attachment MOD from 2.3.10 to 2.4.1 today.  This was a very massive update so let's hope that there aren't any complications.  My limited testing found no problems...

You and I have always controlled the size of the attachments and the types that can be uploaded.  It is up to us to decide what we will allow and has always been...

This is more of a bug and security update I believe.  That's why I didn't bother posting it in IMO.  AFAIK, there should be no noticable difference to what we had before.  I could post the changelog...

Before this Update, 2.3.10 was installed.  This brought us up to 2.4.1...


2005-12-30 - Version 2.4.1
- fixed doubled sql_freeresult in functions_selects.php
- fix extension admin panel (unable to update extensions)
- changed tmp dir for ftp download in safe mod from temp directory in upload directory to upload directory

2005-11-24 - Version 2.4.0a
- fixed a call to sql_build_array (wrong function used) in attach_mod/includes/functions_admin.php
this is producing a php error message within the user administration panel (editing user details)
- this version is a repackage, therefore the "a" at the end (nothing else changed, update path and everything else is the same)

2005-11-21 - Version 2.4.0
- using olympus' system of retrieving and storing values
- using function for sql escaping
- installer now checks for upload directory
- fixing multiple call to database in installer

- display correct filename on download
- added optional language variables (Sync_topics, Sync_posts and Sync_thumbnails)

2005-07-16 - Version 2.3.14
- seperated pre-modified files from the Mod and made them downloadable as a seperate package
- updated pre-modified files to be compatible with the latest phpBB-Version

2005-05-10 - Version 2.3.13

With this an attacker could be able to add/remove/execute files outside of the upload directory
