George has been leading the charge to a major bug fixing release of foswiki – we’ve resolved over 120 issues, and worked hard to improve security – dealing with some interesting cross site scripting issues found by ‘SonyStyles’, and then pushing on to harden the registration process to deal with spammers.
foswiki’s password system can now migrate your user’s password store to more modern encryption methods – the default that we shipped with Twiki can thus move from crypt to md5-apache.
4 days after the release, the installation and maintenance options for 1.1.5 have improved too:
- my yum package repository (extensions too)
- my debian package repository (extensions too)
- my Foswiki on a USB stick for Windows
- Oliver’s VirtualMachine
