Changes to 2.716 from 2.715
|Well, 2.715 was sort of a short-lived release, wasn't it? :v)
The most important reason for 2.716 is to follow up my security announcement yesterday with a release that implements the improvement. Now passwords, validation secrets, and the nefarious temporaryCryptedPassword use 128-bit md5 hashes with something close to real entropy (/dev/random bits if you got 'em).
Security-related action to take:
* Install 2.716.
Fixes a minor bug affecting the "expert editing" features.
Oh yeah, and in the course of releasing it, I realized that I'd been
forgetting the "make manifest" step to include new files. That means that
a bunch of features that I've claimed to be rolling in may not have made
into previous versions. Well, that would be 2.715, since I haven't done a
release for eons anyway. :v) Anyway, now the Russian translation is in the
release (not just the CVS tree), as well as all the other po-based
translations and 'recentrdf'. Sheesh. I'd apologize for missing this, but
then I'm covered by not having actually done any releases. :v)
