There we are. The latest and probably the last of the 0.9.x series is available now.
If you are running version 0.9.1, here are the news:
More spam detecting techiques
More locales: Basque eu_ES, Icelandic is-IS, Polish pl-PL, Estonian ee-ET, Russian ru-RU
Plus, you'll probably never get a 0.9.x update again! From now on, all efforts will go onto the new 1.8 "Phoenix" release.
Note: You still want to run 0.9.2 on heavy loaded production servers because it's still more efficient than the feature packed Phoenix releases. If you have CPU to spare on your server though, then you may want to upgrade to Phoenix in a couple of weeks.
what are the new spam detecting techiques?
I do not see any changes in the admin.
Great! Downloading it now…
“rel no follow” is one thing that now seems to be default
thank you for the “More spam detecting techiques"!
Forgot to say: thanks for the new release - great work on b2evo in general!
P.s. I am still willing to translate the Phoenix release into Danish. Just send me the right language files to work on!
*lay down the boogie* Thanks to all who worked on this release and Phoenix.

Pheonix vs 0.9.2 - how much more efficient is 0.9.2 vs Pheonix?
Thanks, it works great!
Hey guys, I just tried to click through to this post through google[dot]com/ig (my chosen online RSS app), and was told I was referred by a known spammer? Did someone accidentally place Google as a spammer in the Antispam list?
UPDATE: looks like it, I can’t even post this comment with the URL in it.
0.9.2 is not on the “Download” page yet.

Here are the changed files in the core b2Evolution package…
Upload them and you should be fine.
Re: the files in blogs/conf/: you want to merge, not overwrite them (at least _config.php).
Just upgraded my blog, once again a flawless transfer. Any idea as to when we can expect Phoenix?

When will this release be included in Fantastico?
I get “No input file specified. ” when trying to view the rss files
The download page has been updated.
Also, the release ZIP contained two unnecessary file in the conf folder (file names enfin with _TEST.php). Those are useful for testing only. You should delete them from your install.
The updated ZIP file on SourceForge does not include these files any more.
Is there a change in the antispam features of sparkle that prevent long URLs? Or that won’t allow URLs with 2 question marks?

I met the problem as below during installation:
Field ‘user_firstname’ doesn’t have a default value(Errno=1364)
INSERT INTO evo_users (user_login, user_pass, user_nickname, user_email, user_ip, user_domain, user_level, user_locale, dateYMDhour, user_grp_ID) VALUES (’admin’, ‘3d30183c51d3b6e8d401c63a0722d4bc’, ‘admin’, ‘postmaster@localhost’, ‘127.0.0.1′, ‘localhost’, 10, ‘en-SG’, ‘2006-05-26 17:43:56′, 1)

should be just a tiny missing of default value when creating the table.
The antispam improvements have really helped cut down on comment spam. Thanks for the development.
I just uploaded the updated files to my server. I’m running it through Fantastico (ok I’m not a serious programmer type), and when I got a message saying I need to run an install. I tried to and got this error message:
Error selecting database [b2evolution]!
Are you sure the database exists?
Are you sure there is a valid database connection?
So where should the database be located so that I can correct this problem? I really need some help on this.
I tried the “small install” but I was missing _timer_class.php and some antispam thing was missing as well.
Also, the comments here on 06-07 seem to be spam.

thanks for providing a ‘light’ upgrade for 0.9.1 too. Went like a charm, as far as I can tell as yet. Keep up the great work!
And, yeah, funnny those spamments :-)
I upgraded from 0.9.1 using the light zip file to 0.9.2. It worked like a charm, thanks people.
Got it all uploaded from the small file, but missing b2evocore/_timer.class.php so now having to download full zip just to get this one file. Am I the only one?
Is it parallel installable with the 0.8.x series?
Any version of b2evo is parralel installable with any other as long as you use different table names (table prefixes). Set this in the advanced conf file.
For those who upgraded their b2evo v0.9.1 to 0.9.2, does your b2evo admin pages display b2evo v 0.9.1 even if you already applied the small download?
