SquirrelMail 1.4.22 Released

The SquirrelMail Team is pleased to announce the release of SquirrelMail version 1.4.22. This release contains a large number of performance enhancements, stability fixes and a few bug/security fixes.

The most important thing to note when upgrading to version 1.4.22 is that due to a fix made that standardizes the folder list display, administrators who had their configuration file set to work around this issue in the past will need to update their configuration. This will commonly affect those using Courier IMAP, but could affect others as well.... read more

SquirrelMail 1.4.21 Released

The SquirrelMail Team is pleased to announce the release of SquirrelMail version 1.4.21. This is primarily a maintenance release which addresses a smattering of small issues and adds some fine-tuning of recent changes. It also closes two relatively low-risk security issues.

Before this release, for environments with highly active users, the number of security tokens could have bloated user session (and preference) files to an unacceptable size, hurting overall responsiveness. This release scales back the default validity period of security tokens from 30 days to two days, which should fix this problem in most cases. The administrator is always free to change this value by specifying $max_token_age_days in config/config_local.php.... read more

SquirrelMail 1.4.20 Released

The SquirrelMail Team is pleased to announce the release of SquirrelMail version 1.4.20. This release makes final the changes implemented in our last two release candidates and adds several smaller fixes and feature improvements.

Of those new fixes and improvements not included in our last release candidate, the most notable fix is that for the formerly broken search page, but we've also fixed sorting in the Sent folder, handling of complex mailto: addresses, display of multibyte subjects, quoting of encoded headers, automatic installation address detection (especially useful for lighttpd environments), a privacy issue related to DNS prefetching of email content, and added unread links in the message view and a Gmail IMAP configuration option.... read more

SquirrelMail 1.4.20 Release Candidate 2 Now Available

Hot on the coattails of 1.4.20 release candidate 1, we received some helpful feedback from our friends at Secunia Research and have followed up with another release candidate. The risk of using the 1.4.20 release candidate 1 package instead of this one is very low, but we encourage the community to help test code that we hope to release as officially stable in the near future. Those who can upgrade to release candidate 2 are encouraged to do so!

1.4.20 Release Candidate 1 Now Available

The SquirrelMail Team is pleased to bring you the first release candidate ahead of our next SquirrelMail version: 1.4.20RC1. Because of the somewhat invasive nature of some of the changes we have recently made, we are issuing a "release candidate" before we officially move to version 1.4.20. While we have been very careful to ensure the stability of SquirrelMail, this version, 1.4.20 release candidate 1, has undergone limited testing, and we'd like to have more feedback before we make version 1.4.20 final.... read more

SquirrelMail 1.4.19 Released

The security fix to map_yp_alias in 1.4.18 turned out to be incomplete. We also experienced some regressions in the updated filter plugin. Both are addressed in this new release 1.4.19 which contains a few other small fixes aswell. If you do not use map_yp_alias or the filters plugin there's no urgent need to upgrade now if you already installed 1.4.18.

SquirrelMail 1.4.18 Released

The SquirrelMail Team is pleased to announce the release of SquirrelMail version 1.4.18. The most notable changes for this version are several security fixes, including a couple XSS exploits, a session fixation issue, and an obscure but dangerous server-side code execution hole. However, this version also includes three new languages and more than a few enhancements to things such as the filters plugin, the address book system and other things under the hood. For more complete details, see the ReleaseNotes and ChangeLog files included in this release (they have moved to the doc/ directory). We advise all users of SquirrelMail software to upgrade.

SquirrelMail 1.4.16 released

The SquirrelMail team is happy to announce the release 1.4.16. The most notable change is that cookies are now sent with the secure attribute set for HTTPS-connections, meaning that they cannot leak to an HTTP-connection on the same SquirrelMail installation. For details see the included ReleaseNotes. We advise users that offer their SquirrelMail both over HTTP and HTTPS to upgrade.
