Invision Power Services, Inc. is pleased to announce the release of IP.Board 3.4.0!


This new release contains many refinements and new features to help promote, monetize, and grow your community.

What's New
Please read these blog entries for a full list and explanation of what's new in this release.

In addition to the specifics in the blog entries we have fixed many issues and made many smaller improvements.
New Backup Service Delayed
We had announced a new Backup Service however this service will be not be available at release time. We want to be sure the service works reliably and would rather delay a bit than give you something that may not work properly. Obviously something as important as backups on your community is something we want to feel confident about offering.

How to Upgrade


You can access IP.Board 3.4.0 in the client area. Please follow these easy instructions for upgrading.



IP.Nexus 1.5.5 Released


This release contains an important bug fix which addresses an issue which may cause prices to be calculated incorrectly if certain combinations of discount options are used. It is strongly recommended that anyone running IP.Nexus 1.5.x upgrades as soon as possible (older versions are not affected).


This release also contains other bug fixes and enhancements, and a small feature addition which allows users to purchase account credit.



How to Upgrade


You can access IP.Nexus 1.5.5 in the client area. Please follow these easy instructions for upgrading.





IP.Board 3.2.x and Applications: End of Life Announcement

So that we can focus all of our development, support, and service efforts on the newest version 3.4, we are announcing the end of support (sometimes called end of life or EOL) for the following IPS software versions (and earlier versions):

  • IP.Board 3.2.x
  • IP.Blog 2.5.x
  • IP.Gallery 4.x
  • IP.Downloads 2.4.x
  • IP.Content 2.2.x
  • IP.Chat 1.3.x
  • IP.Nexus 1.4.x

Technical support, installations, and services will end for these products on June 1, 2013. On that date all technical or service requests will be advised to simply upgrade to the most recent versions of the products. We will not force upgrades but will also not be able to diagnose issues or answer questions relating to the older software. Also, on that date, IPS will no longer address any new issues or bugs reported in the older software versions.

You are of course free to continue using these older versions if you wish but IPS will no longer provide assistance after the EOL date.

Security Updates

In the event an issue is discovered impacting the security of these older versions of the software, IPS will provide a patch posted in our announcements forum. We will continue to provide security updates for several months after the EOL date based on severity of the issue.

Updated Thursday 29th November


We've just updated the main download zip to fix the following three issues:


  1. The new 'share post' pop-up window can fail on very long topics
  2. The back-up initialisation task can run daily which can affect performance on larger boards
  3. System templates error with classXml.php on some installations

We recommend you download and patch your board if you're already upgraded. As always, feel free to submit to technical support if you need any assistance.


Applying the patch

If you upgraded to 3.4 before the time of this post: simply download the zip, expand and upload the two files over the copies on your server. We have preserved the directory structure so you can quickly identify where the files need to go.
