XenForo.com XenForo 2.2.0 & Add-ons Released

Today, after a refreshingly short beta and release candidate phase, we are excited to announce that XenForo 2.2.0 is now prepared, seasoned, baked and served, replacing XenForo 2.1.11 as our primary supported XenForo version.

This release adds a collection of great new features to XenForo, including the ability to repurpose forums as article repositories, a new way to encourage guest users to register, a progressive web app and a completely redesigned rich text editor. Check out the following list for some highlights:
This is not an exhaustive list of what's new in 2.2, and you can read more about the above and other new changes/improvements features in the Have you seen...? forum.

We have also added preliminary support for the upcoming major release of PHP 8.0.

As always, new releases of XenForo are free to download for all customers with active licenses, who may now grab the new version from the customer area or upgrade from your Admin control panel (Tools > Check for upgrades...).

From the licensed customer area

Note that add-ons and custom styles may be broken after upgrading to 2.2. You must test your add-ons thoroughly or look for updates. Be especially careful with add-ons that cover similar features to ones that are added to 2.2; these may conflict with the core XenForo data. If data conflicts are found, they will need to be resolved in a new add-on release or by removing the add-on before upgrading to 2.2.

Alongside the release of XenForo 2.2.0, we are also releasing updated versions of each of our official add-ons:
  • XenForo Media Gallery 2.2.0
  • XenForo Resource Manager 2.2.0
  • XenForo Enhanced Search 2.2.0
  • XenForo Importers 1.4.0
Each of these has been updated to integrate with the new features in XenForo 2.2 and add features of their own, including:

Media Gallery:

Lightbox navigation and attachment mirroring

Resource Manager:

Teams, review custom fields and review voting

Enhanced Search:

Similar threads when composing or viewing threads

Customers with active licenses for these add-ons may download the new versions from their customer area.

Requirements

The following are minimum requirements:
  • PHP 7.0 or newer
  • MySQL 5.5 and newer
  • All of the add-ons listed here require XenForo 2.2.
  • Enhanced Search requires at least Elasticsearch 2.0
Note: Only the PHP version requirements have changed here. However, even if you're running PHP 7.0 we strongly recommend upgrading to PHP 7.4 at the earliest opportunity for improvements in speed, security and stability. We also recommend MySQL 5.7/8.0 (or equivalent).

Installation and upgrade instructions

Full details for how to install and upgrade XenForo can be found in the XenForo manual. One-click upgrades from XF 2.1 are possible. Once the XF 2.2 upgrade has been complete, the official add-ons should be upgraded as well, otherwise you may run into incompatibilities.
