Change Log

HTML 4.01 & CSS Compliance: Credit to Mark West, Brandon Harvey, and larsneo for taking on the project. This was a task that required touching many files within the system to make sure it all parsed correctly and validated.

Permissions Systems Updates: Credit to Marc Maes who contributed the code on the main mods site and thanks to larsneo for integrating into the main core. Additional credit goes to Adam and Mark West for code refinement. The new permissions provides enhancements to inserting permission, in-table editing/inserting and adding of permissions, filtering of shown permissions allowing you to show all the permissions that apply to a specific group. There are layout refinements and updates the configurations.

A note of special thanks and credit goes to Andreas (aka larsneo) who went through every module ensuring that all have the relevant permissions calls and the WHERE clause fixes were applied to all modules as appropriate to prevent any potential SQL injection issues.

ADOdb – Credit to larsneo Database Abstraction Layer Upgraded to 3.60: More Information about ADODB can be found at

AvantGo - Mobile News Module Update: Credit to larsneo .726 note: permissions for 'Stories: Story’ and 'Topics: Topic’ components are fixed
