Welcome everybody to 2018! We start the year with another patch level release of the 2.1 series: 2.1.5 comes with 48 fixes and enhancements, 19 extensions have been updated. Most importantly, we fixed installing Foswiki on a Windows server.

There are a couple of fixes that are important for our users:

  • Linking to a Foswiki page from within MS Excel spreadsheet was broken due to the way Excel handles HTTP error codes.
  • Under certain conditions some formfields would reset to their default value when special characters are in the selection.
  • The RCS based store failed to load previous revisions of a topic when the underlying .txt file was edited.
  • Several cosmetic issues in configure have been resolved.
  • UpdatesPlugin was failing to show the extensions needing an update.
  • We fixed a broken SCRIPTURL when the Forwarded header contains a list of proxies.
  • A SystemV init script has been added for the FreeBSD platform.
  • Compatibility with latest Perl releases has been improved.
  • A body zone has been added to the default PatternSkin which brings it in line with NatSkin and fixes an issue when installing JQPhotoSwipeContrib.
  • Chinese (Taiwan), French, Italian, Ukrainian are at 100% translated. Czech, Danish, German and Klingon are well over 90% complete.
