Subject [ANN] Struts 2.5.1 General Availability
Date Sat, 18 Jun 2016 05:28:25 GMT
The Apache Struts group is pleased to announce that Struts 2.5.1 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 addresses one potential security vulnerability:
- S2-041 Possible DoS attack when using URLValidator

Also all security patches applied to version Struts 2.3.29 were also
applied to this version (just in case).

This release contains several improvements just to mention few of them:
- contentType override ignored for JSONInterceptor - see WW-4558
- MessageStorePreResultListener does not store messages for 3rd-party
RedirectResult subclasses - see WW-4618
- EmailValidator flags .cat emails as invalid - see WW-4626
- SMI cannot be disabled - see WW-4632
- Centre alignment does not seem to work in Velocity tags - see WW-4634
- Unable to process Jar entry (javassist-3.20.0-GA.jar) - see WW-4637
- Strict Method Invocation breaks Action-Less Results - see WW-4643
- When method is not allowed throw exception with meaningful message -
see WW-4640
- update struts2 bom - see WW-4644
