Announcing CMSMS 2.1.6 - Spanish Wells

Post by calguy1000 »

Hello Everybody,

Today we are happy to announce the latest release in the continuing life of your favorite content management system. Version 2.1.6 is an important release combining numerous stability fixes, and an important security fix as well. Therefore, we encourage everybody to upgrade their websites at their earliest convenience.

Some of the things changed in this version include:
- Behavior improvements in Module Manager and in the daily version check if for some reason the CMSMS server is unreachable.
- For security purposes, we now set the meta referrer tag in the OneEleven admin theme for all admin requests.
- Improvements to the admin login and various API functions with respect to the CSRF security key on each request.
- Fixes to the ordering of content blocks when using {content_image} and/or {content_module}.
- Fix to Content Manager relating to the set non-cacheable bulk operation.
- Improvements to the detection of a temporary directory for expanding files in the installation assistant.
- more.

As usual, the complete changelog is available on the Forge, in the installation assistant when you perform the upgrade, and in the doc/CHANGELOG.txt file once your upgrade is complete.

This season has been incredibly busy for the Dev Team, with another successful GeekMoot, some new additions to the team (to be announced soon), and increased work loads for everyone. Therefore, this release took a bit longer than we'd hoped, but thanks to the hard work of our programming team and QA testers we are confident it was worth the wait. Want to help speed up the next release? We're looking for experienced PHP programmers to join the Dev Team!

As per our normal support policy, we only request that CMSMS Dev Team members answer questions and analyze problems in the last two stable versions of CMS Made Simple. As of this time, that is CMSMS 2.1.5 and CMSMS 2.1.6. For this, and because of the security vulnerabilities that have been fixed in this and recent versions, we encourage you to upgrade at your earliest convenience.

Stay tuned in the new year for updates on what is upcoming with your favorite content management system. And, as always, have fun with CMSMS!
