I updated to from 1.9.1. Now i do not see the newsletter subscription form in footer anymore. In the block i use this:{{block type="newsletter/subscribe" template="newsletter/subscribe.phtml"}}Has this changed in 1.9.2? The text that i also added in that block does appear in footer, just not the form. I use Magemonkey and that is updated to latest version also, but no difference.

SOLVED: In the Magento backend under "System > Permissions > Variables" and "System > Permissions > Blocks" i added newsletter-en and refreshed cache... after that it was visible again in store.

I believe the newsletter/subscribe block is not on the default whitelist that was introduced with the latest patch and version; this means you can not call it from a cms block if you don't add it to the whitelist manually before.

See here how to add it: APPSEC-1057 How to add variables or blocks to the white list tables

In the Magento backend "System > Permissions > Variables" and "System > Permissions > Blocks"

Add newsletter/subscribe and refreshed cache.

More info:

There is a new check on the template directive, see Mage_Core_Model_Email_Template_Filter::blockDirective() line 176

   if ($this->_permissionBlock->isTypeAllowed($blockParameters['type'])) {
        $type = $blockParameters['type'];
        $block = $layout->createBlock($type, null, $blockParameters);
