Snipe-IT v5.0.7 Released


Happy Tuesday, everyone! This is a bug fix release that should handle a bunch of smaller UI bugs, and will hopefully help with some LDAP quirkiness you’ve all been kind enough to document and report for us.

Note: We did miss updating version.php to reflect that this is from the master branch, so it may be confusing to see developinstead of master in your Snipe-IT footer, but this release is definitely based off the master branch. It seemed like it would be more confusing to delete/edit the tag after it was already pushed.

⚠️ IMPORTANT: This release requires PHP 7.2.0 or greater. ⚠️


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.

If you’re running into an issue with images not showing up, that’s due to an outdated version of upgrade.php (outdated because of us, not you.)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. (After v5.0.0, the upgrader was patched to not move those files anymore, so if you skipped the v5.0.0 upgrade you should be fine and no action is needed.)

For general upgrading instructions, click here. Users who installed Snipe-IT via Git (recommended) can just run php upgrade.php.
