 Introduction

+This is Apache Jackrabbit(TM) 2.10.1, a fully compliant implementation of the
 Content Repository for Java(TM) Technology API, version 2.0 (JCR 2.0) as
 specified in the Java Specification Request 283 (JSR 283).
 
-Apache Jackrabbit 2.10 is an incremental feature release based on and
-compatible with earlier stable Jackrabbit 2.x releases. Jackrabbit 2.10.x
-releases are considered stable and targeted for production use.
+Apache Jackrabbit 2.10.1 is a patch release that contains fixes and
+improvements over Jackrabbit 2.10. Jackrabbit 2.10.x releases are considered
+stable and targeted for production use.
+
+Security advisory (JCR-3883 / CVE-2015-1833)
+--------------------------------------------
+
+This release fixes an important security issue in the jackrabbit-webdav module
+reported by Mikhail Egorov.
+
+When processing a WebDAV request body containing XML, the XML parser can be 
+instructed to read content from network resources accessible to the host, 
+identified by URI schemes such as "http(s)" or  "file". Depending on the 
+WebDAV request, this can not only be used to trigger internal network 
+requests, but might also be used to insert said content into the request, 
+potentially exposing it to the attacker and others (for instance, by inserting
+said content in a WebDAV property value using a PROPPATCH request). See also
+IETF RFC 4918, Section 20.6.
+
+Users of the jackrabbit-webdav module are advised to immediately update the
+module to this release or disable WebDAV access to the repository. Users
+on earlier versions of Jackrabbit who are unable to upgrade to 2.10.1 should
+apply the fix to the corresponding 2.x branch or disable WebDAV access until
+official releases of those earlier versions are available. Patches for 2.x
+branches are attached to the JIRA issue.
