subtext suggest edit

If you are hosting multiple blogs on a single installation of Subtext, the recent Subtext 1.5 release unfortunately introduces a security bug that will allow an admin of one blog to login to another blog. The fix has already been posted to Sourceforge as part of the Subtext 1.5.1 release.

Subtext 1.5 Nautilus R and R Edition Released!

subtext suggest edit

IMPORTANT UPDATE: There was a security bug in Subtext 1.5 for multiblog setups that will allow the admin of one blog to login to another blog. If you are only using a single blog setup, you have nothing to worry about. For multiblog setups, please upgrade to Subtext 1.5.1. The change is a single line change in Subtext.Framework.dll so if you have already upgraded to Subtext 1.5, you can simply copy over the old Subtext.Framework.dll file with the new one instead of copying every file from the installation package. Sorry for the the inconvenience. Download Subtext 1.5.1.

Recently I highlighted a site named DotNetKicks which is like Digg.com, but targetted to .NET technology. In particular I thought it was a smart move for them to share in their advertising revenue with those who submit stories.

Implicit Branching and Merging

branches Scott Allen writes about a Branching and Merging primer (doc) written by Chris Birmele. It is a short but useful tool agnostic look at branching and merging in the abstract. This is a nice complement to my favorite tutorial on source control, Eric Sink’s Source Control HOWTO.
