Last week I released Abbrevia 5.0, which adds full support for Free
Pascal on Windows, OS X, and Linux, 32-bit and 64-bit. "fparchive" was
an older, unofficial port that only supported Win32, and hasn't been
updated in years. Among other things, it has several buffer overflows,
one of which has been exploited, so I'd like to encourage everyone using
it to upgrade. To that end, what's the best way to handle that?
Should I add Abbrevia to one or both of
Should I add some sort of redirect from
to the Abbrevia SourceForge site, or just update it with new information
and a new download link?
What's the difference between the first two wiki pages? Also, why, on
the "Components and Code examples" page, are the projects hosted on CCR
separate from those hosted elsewhere? Since the non-hosted projects
aren't organized into subcategories like the hosted ones are, adding
Abbrevia and removing fparchive would actually reduce its visibility,
since it wouldn't be listed under the "Archiving" heading anymore.
The existing fparchive package is available here:
Updating the wiki might be enough; otherwise, can it be removed or can
a readme or copy of Abbrevia be uploaded there?
