Foswiki 2.1.6 Security Update

02 Mar 2018 | George Clark | Release, Security

We are very pleased to announce the availability of Foswiki 2.1.6.

This release addresses a significant security issue we discovered in Foswiki 1.1.0 - 2.1.5, where under some conditions the User Registration topic can be compromised. During review we tightened up a couple of additional security concerns.

Upgrade to Foswiki 2.1.6 is highly recommended.

The bridge plugin
Building a plugin and application to record and practice bridge hands

23 Nov 2017 | Bram van Oosterhout | 1 | Development, Extensions

I learned to play bridge about a year ago. To help the practicing of my bidding and playing I have written a plugin and a wiki application. This post talks about the decisions I made along the way. I hope it will help others to create and publish applications.

Dear Foswiki, all the best to you for your 9th anniversary.
