TenderSystem Released

TenderSystem Beta has been released. This is a critical security fix and we recommend that everyone upgrade to the new version immediately.

As stated yesterday a server may be compromised if register_globals are active in PHP. We still recommend that you deactivate register globals as it is a massive security risk even if you have upgraded.
