Snipe-IT v5.0.2 Released


If your minimum password setting in Admin > Settings was previously less than 8, you should change this to 8 or greater before upgrading. Failure to update this may cause other settings to fail on saving.

This is a bug fix release that should handle some of the issues reported over the past few days.

If you’re running into an issue with images not showing up, that’s due to an outdated version of upgrade.php (outdated because of us, not you.) That script unfortunately tries (tried) to move your files to the Laravel-approved storage directory. Since that was last updated, we decided not to use that file path, so if you upgraded using upgrade.php and your images are coming up broken, please move the files in app/storage/uploads back to public/uploads and remove the symlink the upgrader created for you.

We’ll be hitting them back as quickly as you can throw issues at us, so keep them coming! We appreciate it 🙂
