Subject [ANN] Struts GA release available
Date Tue, 03 Jan 2012 19:57:16 GMT
The Apache Struts group is pleased to announce that Struts is
available as a "General Availability" release. The GA designation is
our highest quality grade.

Apache Struts 2 is an elegant, extensible framework for creating
enterprise-ready Java web applications. The framework is designed to
streamline the full development cycle, from building, to deploying, to
maintaining applications over time.

This release includes one important security fix:
* Strict DMI mode was improved and now it should work correctly
* Default acceptedParamNames were updated to more restrictive values
to solve security vulnerabilities in ParameterInterceptor - support
for param names with withe spaces was dropped! Also a new
configuration was added to CookieInterceptor call acceptCookieNames to
prevent remote code execution with cookies. There is a security
weaknesses in DebuggingInterceptor as a wanted feature in Development
Mode, which anyway should not be used it in a production environment!

All developers are strongly advised to update existing Struts 2
applications to Struts

Struts is available in a full distribution, or as separate
library, source, example and documentation distributions, from the
releases page.

The release is also available from the central Maven repository under
Group ID "org.apache.struts".

The #.#.x series of the Apache Struts framework has a minimum
requirement of the following specification versions:
* Java Servlet 2.4 and JavaServer Pages (JSP) 2.0
* Java 2 Standard Platform Edition (J2SE) 5

The release notes are available online at:
