Habari 0.6.2 Released

Posted by Richard Cockrum on May 22, 2009

It's been a busy month in Habari land. On April 6, 2009, version 0.6 was released after a six month wait between releases.

Version 0.6 brought major changes, with many, many ( to put it in technical terms ) bugfixes, the integration of access control lists, allowing the possibility of multiuser blogs, speed improvements, improved UTF-8 support, improved support for HiEngine theme templating, and several user interface improvements in the admin section of the blog engine.

As it went into the wild, the need for more bug fixes was seen, and version 0.6.1 was released on May 11, 2009.

Today, May 22, 2009, version 0.6.2 has seen the of day. It seems that Habari got to be part of a session presented by Sebastian Bergmann at PHP|Tek, showing how if someone knew your database name and password, and you uploaded Habari and hadn't installed it yet nor uploaded a config.php file, your site could be subject to their whim. It's a pretty slim security hole, but today's release takes care of it adequately for now, with a full fix due when version 0.7 is released.

Download Habari 0.6.2, and enjoy.
