CMSimple_XH 1.6.3

Post by cmb » Sun Sep 21, 2014 10:03 pm

Hello Community,

we have just released CMSimple_XH 1.6.3. Updating is strongly recommended. This release fixes several bugs and brings some improvements:
  • fixed CSRF vulnerability
  • added mitigation against backdoors
  • removed checking of server variables for valid UTF-8, which could have caused the installation to be unaccessible (reported by Olaf)
  • fixed bug, where XH_Backup failed to be PHP 4 compatible
  • fixed regression bug (r1269), where internal filebrowser blocked external ones
  • fixed bug, where corrupted config file triggered fatal PHP error
  • fixed bug, where some external URLs were converted to ?print in the print view (reported by Olaf)
  • fixed regression bug (r1035), where filebrowser POST forms did not work on some servers
  • fixed bug, where "integrated plugin menu" didn't force view mode
  • fixed bug, where $mtx entries with underscores were not recognized
  • fixed spurious error message when saving page data tab without Ajax
  • fixed bug, where plugin menu wasn't usable on some touch devices
  • fixed limitation, where start page had to be published
  • made admin menu adaptable to viewport width (sugg. by Termin)
  • improved reporting of fatal errors
  • Filebrowser: improved error reporting and performance
  • updated jQuery4CMSimple to 1.5.3
  • updated TinyMCE to 3.5.11
  • updated Utf8_XH to 0.5.5
  • added "emergency" template
  • added full language names to language menu
  • added possibility to manually trigger a "normal" backup
  • added client side HTML5 form validation for the mailform
  • added system check for BOMs
  • introduced XH_wantsPluginAdministration(), XH_formatDate(), XH_lockFile(), XH_Li
  • internal improvements: switched to Composer, refactoring, added unit-tests
For further details see the archived roadmap.

As usual you have the following options:

I think we should thank Christoph for releasing this new version and keeping XH up to date.
35 roadmap improvement tasks were done by him, 3 by svasti and 1 each by manu + Holger
(although the individual tasks are quite diverse, still it clearly shows where we would have been without him) Unmaintained software dies a slow death (both commercial and open source). It takes some effort to keep it alife.

So, thank you cmb !
