I just installed 4.6.14 on a test system, and still get the security alert popup message at the top right of the screen, and on the last line of the screen. Is this an error? I cleared caches (Civi & Drupal) but still get the message. I know I can suppress them but I don't think they should be appearing at all.


There is an open issue on this: CRM-18156.

This logic is implemented in CRM_Utils_Version:: checkBranchForNewVersion() -

Update: Now fixed, cause was identified as data in the pingback / version check feed on CiviCRM.org. See JIRA issue CRM-18156 for details.


4.6 will alert you if there is a security release of a higher version number. This includes all 4.7 security releases.

Beginning with 4.7 Civi will check for security release only on their current fork.

  • That is right, but not sure this is the issue in this case. I think that 4.6.14 is not causing the 'there is a security release' pop up to stop loading.

  • Tommy - this is interesting to me as I thought 4.6 already did that current-branch only check. I see the format of the version check has changed also. Mar 3 '16 at 22:44
