I'm running 7.8, and I see that 7.9 is available. I have a good bit of modifications done, but would like to see what is actually different, do they put out a 'changelog' showing just what code was changed/added/removed so I could go through that and put in any upgrades that look needed?

September 2005: Version 7.9
===========================
- Removed ENGINE=MyISAM fromk the nuke.sql file to prevent MySQL errors in old server versions.
- SQL injection vulnerability fixed in modules.php and News module (Thanks to Zhen-Xjell from http://CastleCops.com)
- Cosmetic changes in the Edit Authors administrators section. Added graphical buttons and table field descriptions
- Updated BBtoNuke (phpBB forums port) to version 2.0.17 (Thanks to Chatserv from http://nukeresources.com)
- Added new feature to edit banned IPs in the IP Ban administration system
- Fixed Administrators nicknames case bug. Admins IDs willbe converted all to lowercase. (Thanks to OuTiMe)
- Fixed a duplicated points information display in Your Account module
- Search module now has a minimum limit of 3 characters in the query
- Removed Sections Top 10 data from the Top module
- Added missing translation in Stories Archives module
- Added empty fields check in Feedback and Recommend Us modules.
- News associated topics checkboxes has been changed for multiselect listbox in the news administration.
- Removed download and web links title passed as a variable via URL call, which gives problems rendering pages
- Added a new variables check all over the system. This will increase security in a big manner. The filter
will also work good with the wysiwyg editor. Also, the entire system now can use quotes and double quotes
when needed.
- Added quotes and double quotes in the search module query
- The constant <!--pagebreak--> has been renamed to [--pagebreak--] in Content, Encyclopedia and Reviews
modules due to compatibility issues with the new filters.
- Fixed Encyclopedia search engine to be able to search text with quotes and double quotes
- Fixed a bug for the quotes and double quotes in the title/subject fields in all forms of the system
- Removed advanced wysiwyg editor to reduce load and avoid possible security risks with many useless options
- Added a new varibale to config.php to activate or deactivate the wysiwyg editor
- Added two missing translation definitions to the advertising administration in plans configuration
- Fixed a bug for the advertising call method in the default theme
- Fixed some bugs in the advertising administration system
- Fixed the database connection error message to show the right database server type you're using. (Thanks to nightblade06)
- Fixed a bug on modules.php for the Users Groups system to load the module only if the user has access.
- Fixed some translation bugs in Brazilian languages files (Thanks to DarK_SouL).


Most bugs are fixed with the Patched files. I don't suggest upgrading to 7.9, it is not worth your time for such an untested, buggy release

Thanks, I saw that list of what had changed, what I meant was the old style files where it showed the actual changes in the code (ie, line828: insert: blahblah, etc). I don't plan to do a full upgrade, just look through it and see what looks like it might be an actual improvement. I guess I'll just look at a blank 7.8 vs 7.9 file by file and see if I find anything decent.

You'll need a file difference program then.
I use WinMerge, its free

I suggest not upgrading, there is nothing in 7.9 that is worth it. If you are Patched and using Sentinel, you are fine

I haven't found much info other than downloads for the 'patch' thing, and I'm assuming it would be a pain to do, just as the sentinal appears to be. Being that my code is already quite modified (I don't even use the special admin accounts)...

There are vulnerabilities against 7.8 that make using the Patched files essential. And Sentinel is a proactive security measure. I would invest the time to upgrade there, rather than to a buggy version like 7.9

Well, perhaps I'll go through them and see what looks like it's needed instead of just adding it all, since it seems most of it would just be extra slop that I do not need. It would be nice if rather than make huge packages, people put together lists of known security problems and the fix for each (perhaps that is out there, but I haven't seen it yet).
