The current latest official 6.x-1.x version of "File (Field) Paths" - 6.x-1.4 - does not properly work with the latest official 6.x-1.x version of the "Comment Upload" module - 6.x-1.0-alpha6, at least under PHP 5.3.x.

With filefield_paths 6.x-1.4 (which is already two and a half years old) I am receiving the error

Parameter 2 to filefield_paths_filefield_paths_process_file() expected to be a reference, value given in /usr/share/drupal6/includes/ on line 497.

and the uploaded file will stay directly under the files directory instead of being moved to the configured target location.

This bug has been fixed on 6 Feb 2012 - thus the latest dev snapshot (6.x-1.4+9-dev) must be used in order to properly work with the "Comment Upload" module.

To avoid relying on a dev snapshot, it would be nice to have a new official 6.x-1.x version (6.x-1.5) released. Thanks.

Any progress here?

Title: Please release filefield_paths 6.x-1.5 (to support Comment Upload) » Please release filefield_paths 6.x-1.5 for multiple fixes
Priority: Major » Critical

We're closing in on three years since the last stable release.

Among other items that have since been fixed in dev is #635854: Node links to original file path after creation until the node is saved again, which seems like a critical bug to get fixed.

Can we please get moving toward a new release? RC, beta, something?

Still no updates? Is this module still being maintained?

Hi guys,

Sorry to disappoint, but I have no need to FileField Paths ion Drupal 6 as I don't do any new builds in Drupal 6, and being very much of a scratch your own itch sort of community there really is no reason why I would continue working on the D6 branch.

I'm happy for someone to put there hand up to takeover the D6 development though.

Could you just take the latest dev and commit it as a beta? As mentioned above, there are numerous fixes ready to go. You don't need to continue working on it -- just roll what's already there.

Given that there's no difference between making a beta from the dev and just using the latest dev I think it's somewhat unnecessary, but I'll consider it when I have a bit of time free.

Hello Deciphered,

good to know your development status. I am an active D6 developer and would care about maintaining the 6.x-1.x branch and release 6.x-1.5 after having it tested carefully.
