We keep the details of security fixes private in line with our security policyContact our Support team if you need more information.

Notable bug fixes

Path-based locking no longer adds a leading slash. Previously, this would cause publication to fail on Windows where JDK would interpret the path as a server host and throw an error about a missing sharename.


Security advisory

We have fixed a security vulnerability in JDOM to prevent potential XXE attacks. As a result, the Publishing module now contains some API-breaking changes.

We keep the details of that fix private in line with our security policyContact our Support team if you need more information.
