Title Activities bug
Description The activities addon does not correctly prevent duplication of items on refreshes.

Also the greying out of the activity posting help/placeholder text until you click it, does not work consistently.

Also it would be good to cleanup the code a bit.

Lastly, the refresh time should be configurable as a block parameter.

Title Imported timezones with Facebook addon
Description If Facebook logins are supported, ocPortal will sync member timezones with Facebook, but only if it contradicts the current time of the user's current timezone. However, if the member's prior zone was imported externally into ocPortal in hour-offset format (rather than as a named timezone), ocPortal will trip up.

Title Importing with a gallery sort order
Description Fixes for the following issues…

Filenamed-based sorting does not work on Zip upload (only Tar upload).

Ordering may be erratic if MySQL does not save the table in disk order.

Order must be reversed to account for reverse time order.

Title MySQL 4.1 not supported
Description MySQL 4.1 does meet ocPortal's minimum requirements, but the support is not functioning since ocPortal 9.0.7.

(As an aside, we would recommend any webhosts upgrade, as MySQL 4.1 is now very old technology and no longer maintained with security patches since 2009)

Title MySQL 5.6 incompatible with stats addon / ocPortal installation
Description MySQL 5.6 has made 'get' a keyword, which conflicts with our stats table.

Users installing from fresh will need to use the manual installer, and extract the hotfix before installing.

Existing users will need to extract the hotfix, then go to http://yoursite/adminzone/?index.php?page=admin_stats to trigger the stats module to upgrade it's table.

Title Performance issue viewing forum topics
Description ocPortal now does a "delayed insert" when logging "members viewing this topic", allowing MySQL to log it in it's own time rather than immediately. It also tries to avoid doing non-essential tasks on log tables when something is locking them, after waiting a bit in case the lock goes away. Both of these are actually big recent performance optimisations designed to avoid a server getting overrun with queued locked requests.

However, it so happens that MySQL records a special kind of lock for delayed inserts, and shared servers may be slow in them going through due to MySQL contention, so that had the unintended affect of sometimes making topic viewing actually slower while it tries to wait for the delayed logging from previous requests to go through (those two optimisations weren't expected to interact like that) - something we didn't notice in development, but has been seen now on a couple of shared servers.

Title Performance problem on complex layouts
Description Some possible test code (or code not actually needed) causes a complex random condition that can slow a website significantly. The likelihood of the problem is low on simple-to-normal layouts, but with normal-to-complex layouts (i.e. lots of blocks) there is a higher likelihood of the problem happening.

Description
Some Windows servers may have a problem expanding the Site Tree, due to a bug in PHP.
 
This may also cause issues in some other places. The ones with a higher than small chance of being noticed are included in this hotfix.

Title Tree-list widget won't allow multi-selection on Firefox
Description On Firefox, if you try and make multiple selections from a supporting tree-list widget (e.g. when importing multiple addons, or changing multiple permission scopes in the Permission Tree Editor), it won't work.

This is due to Firefox not firing the proper Javascript events, and this hot fix will workaround that.
