What’s included

2.5.0 includes 3 new features and 9 bug fixes including 1 security fix for 2.4.0. The major highlights of this release are:

  • The provided perl module Redmine.pm for authenticating and authorizing subversion or git users for repositories served through Apache was vulnerable to a cache poisoning attack if caching was enabled. The vulnerability could result in a temporary permissions escalation giving a user write permission to a repository she normally had only read permission. The fix will be immediately active after installation and reboot of the Apache the Redmine.pm is installed on.
  • Registered but not-yet activated users can now be deleted.
  • ChiliProject will be transitioning to jQuery as the primary javascript library for client-side scripting. To ease the transition, plugin developers can query ChiliProject::Compatibility to decide if they want to use the to-be-bundled jQuery or use a version they bundle with their plugin. ChiliProject::Compatibility can also be queried to check for the presence or absence of Prototype.
  • 2 view hooks have been added to the Project index.
  • Still more Ruby 1.9 compatibility fixes.
  • The vendored ruby-net-ldap gem has been removed and replaced by an updated version (now called net-ldap) in the Gemfile.
  • Small bug fixes and translation improvements.

All users of ChiliProject are strongly advised to update their installations as soon as possible.

Users of Redmine should be advised that the fixed security issue of Redmine.pm is also present there. There is currently no Redmine release that fixes the it. Currently it is only addressed in the trunk and 1.3-stable branch in the repository. You should either upgrade or apply the fix manually.
