"It's not either/or; you can have it all"
Tiki version 12.2 LTS follows up on the recently released version 12.1 LTS, urgently fixing a bug introduced in that version which caused toolbars to be removed when a site administrator makes any changes to existing toolbars, plus a few minor fixes. Also, we are aware that some users have timeout issues when choosing InnoDB instead of MyISAM as the database engine in the installer. This affects only certain server environments, and we are still working on the fix.
To learn more about what's in Tiki 12 LTS, see http://doc.tiki.org/tiki12.
All Tiki site administrators are urged to upgrade to a current version. If you downloaded Tiki 12.2 from Sourceforge in the last couple of days prior to this announcement, please re-download it, as the packages that were there prior to the release announcement were missing some changes to the database structure related to the forum feature.
We currently plan in the coming weeks to release Tiki 12.3, the next in the Tiki 12 Long Term Support series, at about the same time as the new Tiki 13.0, which will introduce several framework changes including the move to the Bootstrap mobile-friendly front-end framework. To learn more about this upcoming major version, see http://doc.tiki.org/tiki13.
Tiki 12 is a Long Term Support (LTS) version. To determine which Tiki version is right for you, see the Tiki Version Lifecycle page (http://info.tiki.org/Version+Lifecycle).
