After long hours of intensive fixing/testing/fixing, two new versions of TikiWiki are now available on Sourceforge: version 1.8.6 for the 1.8 -Polaris- branch, and 1.9.1 for the 1.9 -Sirius- branch.
These 2 releases include fixes for recent major security flaws (some disclosed, some not yet). The 2 recent XMLRPC flaws have been corrected. (http://phpxmlrpc.sourceforge.net/)
As always, Tiki releases involve a massive number of changes from one version to the next. Thank you to all the developers, testers, translators and documentation writers.
1.8.6 -Polaris- -> 94 commits since 1.8.5, 7 months ago.
1.9.1 -Sirius- -> 685 commits since 1.9.0, 4 months ago.
1.8.6 -Polaris- is considered very stable/mature. No new features are added. Only bug and security fixes. The 1.8.6 involves no database change compared to 1.8.5 so upgrade should be painless. Please see ReleaseNotes186.
1.9.1 -Sirius- is considered stable/testing. 1.9.1 includes a lot of new stuff and a lot of bugfixes. Please see ReleaseNotes191
Thanks, you all the people that helped in the release process, and in particular the interactive release support on irc that involved mose, marc, amette, toggg, sylvie, redflo and all others.
