Security Alerts

Release TWiki-4.1.2

Major issues

Fixed in Description
TWiki-4.2.0 The pub/_work_area directory is not protected by the documented httpd config file for TWiki. The default TWiki does not keep anything in this directory but some plugins may keep private information in this area. If your site is configured by .htaccess files you are OK. If you use an apache config file add this to your twiki apache config file (assuming /var/www/twiki as your twiki rootdirectory)
<Directory "/var/www/twiki/pub/_work_areas">
  deny from all
The ApacheConfigGenerator has been updated so it creates a protected work area for the plugins.

Minor issues

Minor issues

Fixed in Description
N/A Item3510 - CommentPlugin templates newline issue. With TWiki 4.1.X %TMPL:DEF.. no longer removes leading white space. This influences templates including those used by CommentPlugin. It is simple to fix. If your existing COMMENT based application adds unwanted newlines, simple delete the new line after the %TMPL:DEF..% tag so that your template starts on the same line as %TMPL:DEF..%
TWiki-4.1.1 Item3500 - Several attachments missing in TWikiDocGraphics
TWiki-4.1.1 Item3488 - Autoattaching a single file does not work. Fix can be downloaded from the bug report.
TWiki-4.1.1 Item3478 - Configure requires that tools and lib directories are placed in the same parent directory in order to be able to find the tools/DEPENDENCIES files.
TWiki-4.1.1 Item3476 - The configure script dies with error "Perl v5.8.0 required--this is only v5.6.1. But TWiki can run with perl 5.6.X. See Item3476 for fix.
TWiki-4.1.1 Item3471 - When trying to create a new topic using Jump field or URL, the top creation feature broken when a web does not have the WebTopicCreator topic. Work-around for upgraders: Simply copy the WebTopicCreator.txt file from the TWiki web into each of your old Web directories. Then it all works fine.

What was the point of the 4.1.2 release? No major nor minor issues fixed. What benefit do I have in upgrading, besides having one file less (lib/LocalSite.cfg.txt) ....

Not sure what is that topic about now?!? I ended up there as I was looking for the show stopper concerning 4.2 but that topic tittle suggests it applies to 4.1 however in the paragraph concerning 4.1.2 it mention a bug concerning 4.2 !?! I guess it's just work in progress. BTW AndersHolm as far as I'm concerned 4.1.2 provided genuine benefits from 4.1.1. See TWikiHistory.
