Quick note on XF 2.0.6 & 1.5.20 Beta releases (GDPR)


Pixel Exit Staff
XenForo has pushed out beta releases of XenForo 2.0.6 and 1.5.20 to aid compliance for GDPR. These updates do bring minor changes to the templates so you will have outdated templates if you choose to upgrade. The XenForo's official stance on beta releases: This is beta software. It is not officially supported. We do not recommend running it in production.

While we usually strive to push updates out as soon as possible we also don't know if they'll push out frequent beta's in the short period of the expected official launch date (May 22nd). We're going to hold off on pushing out updates immediately just to see if additional beta's will come. Updating styles take quite a bit of time and even more so trying to support rapidly-released beta releases.

Be aware, if you choose to upgrade to the beta versions you will see these templates as outdated:

XenBase 2 Outdated Templates:
  • helper_js_global
  • notices.less

XenForo 1 Outdated Templates:
  • footer
  • help_wrapper
  • notices
  • public.css
  • xenforo_dismiss.css
I'll post any updates we have on the releases in this thread.
I don’t think anyone would blame you if you don’t do beta updates and only do the full updates.
