Important Changes since Foswiki 1.0.8

This release fixes some of the new bugs that Tiny MCE Editor 3.2.7 introduced in previous release. This relates to bugs that are only seen in specific browser versions but are quite annoying to the users affected. This upgrade will improve the Wysiwyg experience.

The release includes many more minor bug fixes seen only by very advanced application developers and plugin developers.

It contains several bug fixes and enhancements related to security and spam fighting. The very advanced strikeone CSRF protection that was introduced in 1.0.6 has now also been implemented to make it harder to create registration bots. Reset of password and change of email address features are now both strike one protected and you can no longer change to an empty email address. Additionally logging has been added enabling the administrator to see both old and new email address after an email address change.

Default password length is now 7 instead of 1 character. Upgraders will be affected by this as the current used setting will already be in the LocalSite.cfg file.

A rare case condition has been identified where .htpasswd files could be truncated on a very busy site or during a spam robot attack. Foswiki now uses a file locking with a semaphore file to efficiently protect .htpasswd file from ever being changed by more than one process at a time.

Download Foswiki 1.0.9 release candidate and help testing the release

Release candidates are distributed as full release packages. Upgrade packages as well as the special debian/Mac/VM/Windows versions will be available when the final version is released.

People that volunteer to test a release candidate do not need to reinstall final version later. They can use the same upgrade packages that can be used to upgrade any previous 1.0.X version of Foswiki.

If you are on 1.0.8 you can manually remove the files you do not want overwritten in your installation and later upgrade to final 1.0.9 using the upgrade package.

So go ahead and install the release candidate.

Installation

Please refer to the INSTALL.html which can be found the downloaded tgz/zip. It can be also found on Foswiki.org in the System.InstallationGuide

Upgrade Instructions

In-place upgrade from any release prior to Foswiki 1.0.0 is not recommended. Older Foswiki installations should install Foswiki as a new release, configure, and then migrate data to the new installation.
  • See System.UpgradeGuide for details on upgrading from older versions of Foswiki
  • See System.SystemRequirements for the latest System Requirements.
  • Be sure to take a backup!
  • The upgrade packages excludes files "commonly" modified, for example, WebHome, WebPreferences, AdminGroup, etc. If your installation has modified other topics, or template files, those updates will be lost!
  • If you use tar, then you can extract the upgrade package on top of your installation by using: (Be sure to run this as your web server user to avoid changing file ownership.)
cd /var/www/foswiki
tar --strip-components=1 -zxf /path/to/Foswiki-upgrade-2.0.x.tgz
