This version addresses an issue with a corrupt GeoLite2 database (GeoLite2-Country.mmdb file) when you tried
updating the GeoIP database but MaxMind's server was over capacity. Due to a problem on the way the remote server
handles over capacity situations there was no error returned, instead sending us a valid download, with corrupt
data. Even worse, the MaxMind library would throw a fatal error when it would see the corrupt data, rendering your
site inaccessible until you removed the
plugins/system/akgeoip directory. The new version of the plugin
will detect the corrupt data returned by MaxMind when their server is over capacity and prevent the update,
mitigating this issue.
