Marked "being worked on" as you appear to be working on it.

Set back to Confirmed. Someone needs to test all the 1.2 extensions on 1.1.9 before we actually make the final release and upload all the extensions.

I've installed most of the 1.2 extensions on 1.1.9, and found a couple of problems.
  • SubscribePlugin generates invalid links for the Subscribe button.
  • When famfamfam skin is added, it generates a link that triggers a 403 invalid validation code error.

The TinyMCEPlugin won't install on 1.1.9 from the .tgz file, at least with older versions of cpan modules. Archive::Tar seems to have trouble with long filenames, and attempts to extract the @LongLink trigger name that is set in the archive when a filename exceeds the blocksize. The zipfile version installs fine. The following patch fixes the issue on 1.1.9, might be advisable on 1.2.0 DONE

Fixed under Item13449

1.2 PatternSkin does not work on Foswiki 1.1.9. Some sort of templating issue, top, left and bottom bars are not found.

TopicUserMappingContrib is not backwards compatible. Unable to add users to groups when installed on 1.1.9
