Not even one week after the previous release, we've released Bolt 3.2.13 as a regular maintenance release for all Bolt users. The main reason for this is:

When you're using a field with type: video, Bolt fetches the embed codes to use in the HTML using the oEmbed standard. Until today, we used Embed.ly for this as a provider, but they recently changed their business model, locking out Bolt users. This latest release ships with a built-in oEmbed implementation, so we're no longer dependent on a third party for this.

At the same time, we've forked over the $99 usage fee to Embed.ly for this month, so the embeds are currently working again. If you're using type: video Video fields on your website(s), make sure to update your installation before the end of the month.

This release contains no security-related fixes. Detailed changes for this release can be found in the Changelog.

Installation & Upgrade

To install this version from scratch, follow the instructions on the updated installation page in the documentation, as can be found here: Installing Bolt.

To upgrade an existing site, see Updating. Be sure to get the correct versions, though: bolt-latest.tar.gz or bolt-latest.zip.

If you need the version with all files inside the web root, grab bolt-latest-flat-structure.tar.gz or bolt-latest-flat-structure.zip.

To do a 15-second install, use the following:

curl -O https://bolt.cm/distribution/bolt-latest.tar.gz
tar -xzf bolt-latest.tar.gz --strip-components=1
php app/nut init


After this, you might need to set the correct permissions for the cache and image folders. Check our documentation on File system permissions. If you have any questions or remarks, post a comment below, or join us on Slack or IRC.
