Today we are releasing both XenForo 1.5.20 Beta 2 and XenForo 2.0.6 Beta 2 which resolves a small number of issues that have been reported to us since the release of Beta 1 which introduced some new functionality to aid compliance with the GDPR.

For a much more detailed overview of what GDPR is and what new features have been added, please read the following thread Upcoming changes for GDPR compliance in XF1 and XF2.

This is beta software. It is not officially supported. We do not recommend running it in production.

For details of the bugs fixed in this release, view the Resolved bugs forum.

A summary of the changes in this release for both XF1 and XF2:
  • New notice position "Fixed" which fixes notices to the bottom of the page.
  • GDPR: New default privacy policy help page
  • GDPR: Ability to mark change log entries as "protected" so they will never be pruned
  • GDPR: New fields to log the date and time that the privacy policy / terms and rules were last accepted (logged as protected in the user change log)
  • GDPR: Now possible to force all members to accept privacy policy / terms and rues before continuing using the site
  • GDPR: More detailed cookie notice which has to be explicitly acknowledged. It will appear in the new "Fixed" notice position.
  • GDPR: Updated default Cookie help page text.
  • GDPR: When deleting a user, give an option to change their name in order to anonymize content they have created.
  • GDPR: Functionality to allow very basic personal details to be exported in XML format on one forum and imported into another to comply with data portability.
  • GDPR: Require explict consent when registering and only log acceptance if consent was given.
  • GDPR: New option to show "Require site email" option to be filled in during registration (with consent date being logged if appropriate).
  • GPDR: Add a new option to anonymise IP addresses for Google Analytics.
All customers with active licenses may now download the new versions from the customer area.

Note that when upgrading from XenForo 1.x, all add-ons will be disabled and style customizations will not be maintained. New versions of add-ons will need to be installed and customizations will need to be redone. We strongly recommended that you make a backup before attempting an upgrade. Once upgraded, you will not be able to downgrade without restoring from a backup.
