Major issues

Fixed in Description
Hotfix 4.0.4-4 Bugs:Item2859 - Attachments are being named the full path name instead of the filename only when uploading from Internet Explorer (introduced by Hotfix 3)
Hotfix 4.0.4-3 Bugs:Item2806 - SecurityAlert-CVE-2006-4294 - viewfile doesn't follow rules for mapping attachment names
Hotfix 4.0.4-3 Bugs:Item2714 TWiki-4.0.0 added the ability to add settings in "More topic actions > Edit Settings" including ALLOWTOPICVIEW and ALLOWTOPICCHANGE settings. It has recently been discovered that a simple formatted search can reveal the entire content of a topic protected by ALLOWTOPICVIEW in "Edit Settings". If a topic is protected against viewing in the good old way by having Set ALLOWTOPICVIEW in the topic text itself, the formatted search feature cannot reveal the content of the protected topic unless you have access to reading the topic alreadyl. It is OK to hide the setting inside HTML comments. This issue is now resolved in Hotfix 3
TWiki Access Control Bugs:Item2631 - The TWikiAccessControl document describes Apache rewrite rules for securing attachments which are easy to bypass. An update document with better rewrite rules are now available on TWikiAccessControl

Fixed in Description

Minor Issues

Fixed in Description
TWiki-4.0.4 Cosmetic Issue: Twisty links (such as "Show attachments" link) are shown underlined which does not match the rest of the PatternSkin graphical design. Updated PatternSkin's CSS file style.css is available for download. Replaces old file in directory /pub/TWiki/PatternSkin/
TWiki-4.0.4 Distributed LocalSite.cfg.txt file uses incorrect variable syntax. This file is normally never used for anything. When you run configure the first time a LocalSite.cfg will be created. For those that cannot run configure, you can download a corrected file from the bug report Bugs:Item2558. Do not mistake this file from the bin/LocalLib.cfg.txt which you copy to bin/LocalLib.cfg and edit as part of the installation. This file is OK.

EricHanson asked for this topic to be updated for release 4.0.5.

It is updated. The number of fixes on DownloadTWiki is since 4.0.4!

I had counted the number of minor fixes as 23. There are only 21 because the same issues have been fixed twice in two cases.

I untarred TWiki-4.0.5.tgz and horror of horrors, it had no single root in its directory. Its the first tarball to do this to me in years, and I think its bad form. Better to give instructions on copying the distribution to the right place, than to risk dumping the distro into a directory not meant for it.
