Seagull 0.6.5 Released

Posted on 08 August 2008 by Demian Turner

I’m happy to announce 0.6.5 was released last week, the code is available in the usual place:

http://seagullproject.org/download/

According to Trac this release contains 13 enhancements and fixes for  
26 defects, although there was also a lot of internal cleanup and small  
features added.

The wysiwg library has been updated from tinyFCK to FCKeditor  
following the security alert discussed here:

http://groups.google.com/group/seagull_general/browse_thread/thread/534ae6d5ccca995a?hl=en

I’ve had one developer contact me reporting a security compromise to  
one of his servers following the publication of the tinyFCK exploit,  
so please take care and upgrade to 0.6.5 or at least remove tinyfck to  
be on the safe side.  As mentioned before, being vulnerable to the  
exploit depends on a number of conditions existing however you are  
advised to update in all cases.

The main new features and improvements in this release are:

  • Added ability to rebuild single modules
  • New modules: comment2, emailqueue, simplesite, siteexporter
  • New/improved libs: SGL_Emailer2, SGL_AjaxProvider2,
  • Added ability to synchonise prefs for all members
  • Improved preference handling
  • CSS handling more flexible

Or for a detailed list see the changelog:
http://trac.seagullproject.org/browser/tags/0.6.5/CHANGELOG.txt

Work has also started on trunk again which is now 0.9, it will be a  
greatly slimmed down version of 0.6.x with no modules required by  
default, php5 only, and no libs bundled in the distro.

Thanks as always to everyone who sent in comments and helped us fix  
problems with their patches and/or feedback.
