Foswiki v1.0 hits beta

On the 26th of December 2008, Kenneth built Foswiki v1.0 Beta 1, and then Foswiki v1.0 Beta 2 on the 28th. Since then we’ve been busy testing and fixing things that are side effects of the Secure by default policy we’ve instigated.

I’ll be releaseing a Windows installer using Apache 2.2 and Strawberry Perl when Beta 3 is released – we’re still working through some Windows oddities.

its pretty amazing what has been achieved in the 2 months since the project forked.

  1. Massive XSS and parameter validation changes
  2. much more resistant input validation (Perl taint checking)
  3. over 160 bugs fixed

Happy new year, and a happy new Data Wiki release.
