How do I download this code?

-- DaveHecker - 17 Sep 2005

(it's in the See also: section), but i made an additional download link which is more prominent.

-- WillNorris - 18 Sep 2005

When I downloaded the 03 version, I checked the instructions for the upgrade info.

The only thing I was able to find were instructions for upgrading previous versions to 01-Sep-2004 Release. My version, as reported by the twiki, is 01 Sep 2004 $Rev: 1742.

The reason I want to upgrade is because of the recent security vulnerability alert, but I'm having a hard time understanding exactly what to do.

Is this actually the 03 version but the documentation hasn't been upgraded? Any advice apprecited!

-- DaveHecker - 25 Sep 2005

The 03 version is the 01 version patched for the SecurityAlertExecuteCommandsWithRev and SecurityAlertExecuteCommandsWithSearch issues.

As indicated in SecurityAlertExecuteCommandsWithRev, if you are running an unmodified TWikiRelease02Sep2004, simply copy the patched lib/TWiki/Store.pm, lib/TWiki/UI/RDiff.pm, lib/TWiki/UI/View.pm and lib/TWiki/UI/Viewfile.pm from the TWikiRelease03Sep2004 to your installation. If you have not patched your TWiki with SecurityAlertExecuteCommandsWithSearch you can also copy the patched lib/TWiki/Search.pm from the TWikiRelease03Sep2004 to your installation.
