Redmine: Redmine 5.0.7 and 5.1.1 released

Added by Marius BĂLTEANU 3 months ago

Redmine 5.0.7 and 5.1.1 have been released and are available for download. These are maintenance releases and you can review the fixes included in the Changelog.

Redmine 5.1.1 contains an important fix for concurrency issues when MySQL > 5.6 is used as database back-end. Beside the update to 5.1.1, an additional MySQL configuration is needed to properly fix those issues, please read MySQL_configuration. Also, the CI matrix was updated and now all the tests run on MySQL 8 and PostgreSQL 14 (Continuous_integration).

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the releases and special thanks to Jens Krämer for fixing those old issues.

Added by Marius BĂLTEANU about 1 year ago

Redmine 4.2.9 and 5.0.4 have been released and are available for download, you can review the changes in the Changelog.

These new versions contain 4 important security fixes, including an access control issue introduced in Redmine 5.0 that allows an unauthenticated user to download all attachments associated with a WikiContentVersion, so upgrading as soon as possible is highly recommended. You can review the Security_Advisories for more information.

Many thanks to all contributors that worked on the fixes and to Robert Dick, Frans Rosén, Noriko Totsuka from JPCERT/CC, Shiga Takuma of BroadBand Security, Inc. and Holger Just for reporting the security issues!

Redmine: Redmine 4.2.7 and 5.0.2 (6 comments)

Added by Marius BĂLTEANU over 1 year ago

Redmine 4.2.7 and 5.0.2 have been released and are available for download, you can review the changes in the Changelog.

These maintenance releases fixes some important issues and multiple security fixes that were found in the latest Redmine 4.2.* and 5.0.* versions.

Security:
  1. Updates commonmark gem version to 0.23.4 when Ruby >= 2.6 is used in order to fix a remote code execution vulnerability. Because the fixed version of the gem doesn't support Ruby 2.5, those instances that are using Redmine 5.0.*, Commonmark and Ruby 2.5, it is highly recommended to update Ruby version to at least 2.6 because it's the only way to get the update and the fix. Also, the next major Redmine version (5.1.0) already dropped support for Ruby 2.5 (#37159).
  2. Updates jQuery UI to 1.31.1 to fix 3 medium severity XSS vulnerabilities
  3. Fixes unauthorised Information Leak in QueryAssociationColumn and QueryAssociationCustomFieldColumn when the user has no permission to view on the associated object

Many thanks to Liane Hampe and Felix Schäfer for reporting these security issues and to Holger Just and Felix Schäfer for their work on fixing all these issues.

Redmine: Redmine 5.0.0, 4.2.5 and 4.1.7 released (6 comments)

Added by Marius BĂLTEANU almost 2 years ago

I'm very happy to announce that Redmine 5.0.0 has been released. The new version ships more than 143 changes including some major updates:

  1. Migrate to Rails 6.1 with Zeitwerk autoloading (#29914). Switching to Zeitwerk autoloader breaks some plugins and requires plugin developers to fix the compatibility issues.
  2. Introduced CommonMark Markdown (GitHub Flavored) formatter (#32424) as an alternative to existing Markdown formatter based on Redcarpet. This new formatter is marked as experimental for now, but without any known issue. In the future versions, the Markdown based on Redcarpet will be deprecated and removed. A new configuration (common_mark_enable_hardbreaks) was added to the configuration file (configuration.yml) that allows to configure the hardbreak behaviour. Also, this formatter contains many fixes/improvements and supports task list items (#35742). Switching to this formatter is recommended for existing Markdown (there are some migration tips in the ticket).
  3. Users can be mention now using arobase autocomplete by other users with add watchers permission (#13919). This a long awaited feature.
  4. Issue custom query: default query per instance, project and user (#7360). This a long awaited feature.
  5. Default project custom query: per instance and per user (#35795).
  6. Ability to add watchers to Wiki pages (#7652).
  7. Issues can now be filtered by notes (#5893) or by file description (#34715).
  8. "Contains" operator supports now multiple search items (#35764). Using wilcard characters (_ or %) is no longer supported (#35073).
  9. Two-factor authentication improvements: you can enable it only for certain groups (#31920) or for users with administration rights (#35439). Users list contains now the 2FA status as column and as filter option (#35934).

Please review all the changes in the Changelog.

Redmine 4.1.7 and 4.2.5 are maintenance releases for 4.1.x and 4.2.x users. You can review the details in the Changelog.

Please note that 4.1.7 is the last release for 4.1 series, you should upgrade to Redmine 4.2 or 5.0 to get the future maintenance updates.

Many thanks to Go Maeda, Mizuki ISHIKAWA, Takashi Kato, Bernhard Rohloff, Plan.io team, Pavel Rosický and all the contributors who made this release possible.
