Upgrade Urgency

Upgrade Instructions

Due to the amount of files changed in this update, the upgrade process will require overwriting all files and running the Arrowchat installer again. Running the installer again will not delete any of your current settings except in the functions_receive.php file (which we've made a small change to). You can look at your config.php file to view your previous installation settings -- these will not change.

Make copies of your config.php and includes/functions_receive.php files if they are unique so that you'll be able to transfer them over with the new version.

Important Note: The header include files have changed. Be sure to update your header templates! We have also made a slight change to the getfriendslist function to still receive user information up to 60 seconds after being offline.

The next release will come with an automatic updater in the admin panel so that an uninstall/install of ArrowChat is no longer necessary.

You'll also want to clear your browser cache to see the new style changes.
