Release of Foswiki version 1.0.6, 21 Jun 2009
On behalf of the entire Foswiki community I can proudly announce the release of the Foswiki patch release 1.0.6
Foswiki 1.0.6 is available for download at the following locations
* Foswiki web site: http://foswiki.org/Download
Since the January release of 1.0.0 more than 160 additional bugs have been fixed.
This release includes further security improvements including a major enhancement in security against Cross-Site Request Forgery. These are further security enhancements we have decided to implement as a follow up on Security Alert CVE-2009-1434 that we issued on the 27th of April. An updated version of the security will be sent to the major security sites.
It is highly recommended to upgrade your Foswiki to 1.0.6.
The number of bugs fixed relatively to the current TWiki release is now around 350.
Since 1.0.5 even more plugins and other extensions have been made available in native Foswiki versions that have been refreshed and tested and often enhanced. And still more are added every day. The number of subversion code checkins is near 4300 now.
The regular version (Foswiki-1.0.6...) is the full version with all files. The upgrade version (Foswiki-upgrade-1.0.6...) contains the full file package except the files that you will typical have tailored in your installation and do not want overwritten when you upgrade. The upgrade package will upgrade any version from 1.0.0 or later to 1.0.6 simply by copying all the files in the upgrade package on top of the existing 1.0.0/1.0.4/1.0.5. The exact steps are described on the download page.
If you are at 1.0.0 there is no need to upgrade to 1.0.4 and 1.0.5 first.
As release manager on the project I want to say a sincere thank you to all the many that have worked hard on this release happen.
You should also both when you download and install Foswiki and regularly visit http://foswiki.org/Support/KnownIssuesOfFoswiki01x00 where we will list the more annoying bugs that have been found and most often you will find an immediate solution that you can apply.
We will be many developers that are ready to help you with the installation of (or upgrade to) Foswiki on the IRC channel #foswiki on the freenode.org network.
The special installer and virtual machine versions of Foswiki will be updated to 1.0.6 version within the next days. Keep an eye on the download page if you use one of these versions.
On behalf of the Foswiki community
Enjoy the Foswiki 1.0.6
