Silva 1.5.8 Released

Publication date: 20.November.2006, 18:58

6 november 2006 – Infrae has just released version 1.5.8 of the Silva content management system. This is a maintenance release that fixes various issues:

  • Non-ASCII characters in names or values of CodeSource paramaters no longer result in errors.
  • Incorrect links entered by hand or imported broke the path adapter. Since this made editing the document impossible, defensive code is added.
  • Anchors around divs break in Explorer, so they were put inside the divs in the xslt renderer.
  • The user settings screen did not work when a user did not have sufficient rights in the Silva Root.
  • The forms editor should now not throw out URL fragment information (#foo). This fixes issue 1592.
  • Browser language settings was ignoring the English language (issue 1572).

See HISTORY.txt in the package for complete details of the fixed issues.
