PHP’s Fileinfo Required in 2.10.0

ExpressionEngine 2.10.0 introduced a new MIME type detection library. We use this library in our upload code to ensure the file being uploaded is safe. We now require PHP’s Fileinfo extension, which they note “is enabled by default as of PHP 5.3.0,” and we have updated our server compatibility wizard to check for Fileinfo. We have made the assumption that most hosts have Fileinfo available, however, it can be explicitly disabled via the --disable-fileinfo configuration option when compiling.

Microsoft Kills What EllisLab Buried Eight Years Ago

When I heard of Microsoft’s supposed plans to rebrand their browser as Spartan in Windows 10, killing the tainted Explorer brand, I couldn’t help but dredge up this eulogy that Leslie Camacho and I made almost eight years ago. Also, wow, what a difference eight years makes in the quality of internet video. If you focus on the poor quality of the video, you hardly even notice how corny we are.
