Unified Changelog for s2Member & s2Member Pro v190608-RC
(s2Member Pro) Authorize.Net Hash Upgrade: Authorize.Net announced the end-of-life for their MD5 Hash in favor of their new SHA512 Signature Key. Support for this has been added to s2Member Pro. The MD5 Hash is not provided by Authorize.Net any more, so the field for it in s2Member has been disabled. Props @krumch for his work. For further details see forum thread 5514.
Note: For those that already used the MD5 Hash in their configuration, it is kept there and will keep working while Authorize.Net accepts it, which will not be much longer. It's important to update your integration with the new Signature Key. Once you have your Signature Key in the s2Member configuration, it will be favored over the old MD5 Hash.
(s2Member Pro) Bug Fix: The multisite patch for
wp-admin/user_new.phpwasn't finding the code to replace because of changes in the latest releases of WordPress. It has now been updated, as well as the instructions in the Dashboard for those that prefer to apply it manually. Props @crazycoolcam for reporting it. For further details see Issue #1132.
Note: If you already had patched this file in the past, it's recommended that you remove the previous patch restoring it to the original file, and let s2Member Pro patch it again now, otherwise you risk getting it patched over the previous one and ending up with errors. After the new patch, please review that file to verify that it's correct.
(s2Member Pro) Bug Fix: The search results for
s2Member-Listwere not being ordered as specified in the
orderbyattribute when this was a field from the
usermetatable in the database, e.g.
last_name. This is now fixed and working correctly. Props to @stevenwolock for reporting it. For further details see Issue #1103.
(s2Member) WP 5.2 Compat. Enhancement: s2Member has been tested with WP up to 5.2.2-alpha. With
WP_DEBUGenabled, only one "notice" was found. In
wp-login.phpit said 'login_headertitle is deprecated since version 5.2.0! Use login_headertext instead.' This release now uses
login_headertextand doesn't get that notice anymore. Props Azunga for reporting it. See forum thread 5962.
Please note that when this version leaves beta and an official release is made, the WordPress Plugin Updater will automatically detect the new version on WordPress.org and ask you to upgrade. If you're using s2Member Pro, you will also be asked to complete an upgrade of the s2Member Pro Add-On right after you upgrade the s2Member Framework. For more information, please review Automatic Updates Through WordPress (Recommended).
