I just installed the latest version of updater 0.2.13-beta. Again the notifier caused a problem due to php version.
My server is running PHP 5.4 (FastCGI). I'm hoping to get to 5.6 soon, but Hostmonster php 5.6 build is breaking all my sites and I've had to downgrade to keep them running. Working to resolve.
In any case, had I not seen this problem before I wouldn't have know where to start. It would be nice to have a version check during installation to prevent this.
Just released the next version of the Updater extra: v0.3.6-beta.
This version now does not block any more the dashboard loading when it refreshes its data. Instead it will show up some information and asynchronosly refresh its state after the dashboard is loaded.
All other fixes and enhancements can be viewed in the changelog.
Same for me.
I'm also getting a weird error on the website itself, all the way on the bottom:
Fatal error: Call to a member function get() on a non-object in /Users/Hugo/Localhost/grow-organics/core/cache/includes/elements/modplugin/22.include.cache.php on line 40
That's coming from the Updater Notifier plugin..
That's being patched even as we speak. In the meantime, simply disable the notifier plugin (plugin #22 in your installation)
There is an issue with Updater 0.3.7. The connector is written to and called from /connectors/. That should be changed to /assets/components/updater/
