Great news! #SocialEngine has released version 4.9.1 with some bug fixes and a few improvements to help keep third party products from interfering with upgrades and CSS. They sure are stepping up with releases now. This version has a fix for the photo privacy issue! Awesome news.

A few points from the blog:
"Fixed issue with user privacy for photo album not respecting member level. (Fixes #607)
Issue: Third party products which were not updated caused SocialEngine default CSS not to load. Solution: We separated our core CSS from 3rd party add-ons so clients have the base theme loaded to get their site running off the bat."
