Subject [ANN] Struts GA (fast track | security | critical)
Date Tue, 16 Jul 2013 15:03:23 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.

Two security issues were solved with this release, one of which is rated
critical - see [1] and [2] for detailed information:
* Remote code execution vulnerability when using short-circuit
navigation parameter prefixes
* Open redirect vulnerability when using short-circuit redirect
parameter prefixes

All developers are strongly advised to immediately 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 through the central Maven
repository under Group ID "org.apache.struts". The release notes are
available online [3].

The 2.3.x series of the Apache Struts framework has a minimum
requirement of the following specification versions: Servlet API 2.4,
JSP API 2.0, and Java 5.

Should any issues arise with your use of any version of the Struts
framework, please post your comments to the user list, and, if
appropriate, file a tracking ticket.

- The Apache Struts Team.
