Project membership changes

Since actual project membership has not been managed at Sourceforge for some time, the admins today have decided to go ahead and clean up the user list here. This does not impact actual project membership or developer lists in any way.

eGroupWare 1.2-106 bugfix and maintainance release

This is a bugfix and maintainance release for the 1.2 branch of
eGroupWare. We recommend everyone to update to it.

Please note:
The most important fix is PHP5.2 compatibility.
Because of a nasty bug in the PHP5.2 mbstring extension, you have to
additionally switch display_errors Off, to be able to work with
eGroupWare using multibyte charsets like utf-8 (or anyway if you have
mbstring.func_overload > 0). Otherwise you get tons of "empty haystack"
warnings.... read more

5. bugfix and maintainance release of eGroupWare 1.2

It contains only bugfixes and language updates, no new features. It also contains a security relevant fix, if you use eGroupWare with register_globals On, against our recommendation and configuration files.
We recommend everyone updates to it.

4. release candidate for upcomming 1.2 release

Again many bugs fixed.

Due to the number of bugs fixed since RC3, I decided to have at least one more release candidate - this one.

Because of a critical bug in the db-class, I recommend everyone using the previous RC's to update to this one ASAP, as you can damage your data. One effect of the bug is, that new created files in filemanager are shown twice. This will not go away, you have to delete and re-add the files.... read more
