1.1. Requirements

Tiki20 keeps the same requirements as Tiki19:

  • At least MySQL version 5.5.3, which provides support for utf8mb4 encoding
  • PHP 7.1


It is possible that Tiki21 will require PHP 7.2, so if you updgrade to Tiki19 or 20 (ex.: from Tiki18, be ready to maybe need to have PHP 7.2 (Tiki20.x is End of Life once Tiki21.1 is released so you are compelled to upgrade)

Alphabetically sorted

1. New Features and Improvements

1.1. Spam protection improvements

  • Google ReCaptcha V2 has been upgraded to Google ReCaptcha 3

Tiki in its goal to be an ocean of several useful and secure features for the user, we have chosen to give you the opportunity to choose between different versions of spam security features.
Which is why you can currently choose in the settings to activate the Google ReCaptcha 2 or 3 version.

  • How will reCaptcha V3 stop spam?

The previous ReCaptcha (v2) worked because it tracked the user movement (scrolling, clicking) while the user solved the captcha (clicked on "I'm not a robot"). v3 does the same, but there is just no button to click on, google just "watches" the client and determines wether there is a human controlling the mouse on the other side.

  • What if a hacker spams the URLs on my site with an external tool without using the interface I provide?

Google generates a token for the client when he passes the checks which you have to validate on the serverside. If someone doesn't pass the captcha (a robot), he doesnt have the token.

  • How to activate Google ReCaptcha V3 in Tiki?

In control panel, press the "Security" feature, then the "Spam Protection" tab,
Then go to https://www.google.com/recaptcha/intro/v3.html
Create a site, add your domain, and then select version 3 of google ReCaptcha, and validate.
You will get two keys that are scrolled in Tiki respectively and then copy-paste and validate and here you are with version 3.

1.10.2. Unified Index: fall back if Elasticsearch is unaccessible

Delivered to trunk: https://sourceforge.net/p/tikiwiki/code/70075

Now when elasticsearch is the default engine, a new checkbox is displayed allowing to use MySQL as a search index fallback in case of Elasticsearch failure.
If enabled, when the index rebuild process occurs both indexes (Elastic + MySQL) are indexed (with objects and preferences). The fallback rebuild status is visible both in UI and CLI after running index rebuild.

1.11. TRIM / Tiki Manager

The "Tiki Remote Instance Manager (TRIM)" will go into maintenance mode, and the code will be forked and revamped to become its replacement, now known as the "Tiki Manager".

1.13. WebDAV

1.14. XMPP

1.15. Map / Location / OpenStreetMap

1.15.1. Clustered Features (Map)

 Open Layer Terminology

"feature" is what OpenLayers calls a "thing on a map"

From Tiki20.1 and up The open Layer 3 (see above) "Clusters Features" add the capability to display group of Features / Objects (points, markers, zone, etc) based on distance from a determined feature (see terminology)
