The Serendipity Team is proud to announce the final release version of Serendipity 1.0.

Serendipity 1.0 marks the end of a very long development cycle that started in 2002. Many beta-releases have been issued since, keeping us closely in touch with the community, fixing bugs and offering features our users really wanted.

Since our most recent prerelease, we’ve updated the installation screens, added new languages (Polish, Turkish, and Tamil), made our RSS feeds templatized, improved the spam filters with Akismet support, and fixed every known bug.

Geeklog 1.4.0sr3 and 1.3.11sr6

May 28th, 2006 No comments


A few security issues in Geeklog have been reported by KAPDA (a possible SQL injection and authentication bypass, a possible cross site scripting, and a path disclosure in some themes). Additionally, an internal code review has revealed another possible SQL injection in the story submission.

Geeklog developers are therefore releasing Geeklog 1.4.0sr3 to address these issues, recommending that Geeklog users install the new version as soon as possible.

As usual, the current and previous versions of Geeklog (1.4.0 and 1.3.11, respectively) are supported. If you’re still running an older version, now may be a good time to upgrade.

Talking about security issues, a security issue has recently been found in FCKeditor, whose version 2.1 ships with Geeklog 1.4.0. Further explanations and remedies about this and all the previously mentioned issues can be found in the original Geeklog announcement.
