The ModSecurity Development Team is pleased to announce the availability of ModSecurity 7.0-rc3 Release. The stability of this release is good and include bug fixed and new features. I think the most important one it to be able to handle Internationalization (I18N) and thus properly handle various data encodings including Unicode and UTF-8 in order to prevent not only evasion issues but also to minimize false positives Please check our blog for more information.
We also merged the Ngnix and IIS code from experimental branch.The IIS code should be stable now but Ngnix is still in experimental status. This should be the last -rc extra version until the stable.
Please see the release notes included into CHANGES file. For known problems and more information about bug fixes, please see the online ModSecurity Jira. Please report any bug to
