The Foswiki project is very pleased to announce availability of Foswiki 2.1.5

Welcome everybody to 2018! We start the year with another patch level release of the 2.1 series: 2.1.5 comes with 48 fixes and enhancements, 19 extensions have been updated.

You can download it from different locations immediately, see our download page for details. Please use our task tracker to report any issues. Or contact us on IRC or Slack to get live support. For installation information, see the System Requirements and the Installation Guide.

There are a number of fixes that are important for our users:

  • Linking to a Foswiki page from within MS Excel spreadsheet was broken due to the way Excel handles HTTP error codes.
  • Under certain conditions some formfields would reset to their default value when special characters are in the selection.
  • The RCS based store failed to load previous revisions of a topic when the underlying .txt file was edited.
  • Several cosmetic issues in configure have been resolved.
  • UpdatesPlugin was failing to show the extensions needing an update.
  • We fixed a broken SCRIPTURL when the Forwarded header contains a list of proxies.  (Foswiki 2.2 will have further improvements in Proxy support.)
  • A SystemV init script has been added for the FreeBSD platform.
  • Compatibility with latest Perl releases has been improved.
  • A body zone has been added to the default PatternSkin which brings it in line with NatSkin and fixes an issue when installing JQPhotoSwipeContrib.
  • Chinese (Taiwan), French, Italian, Ukrainian are at 100% translated. Czech, Danish, German and Klingon are well over 90% complete.
For more details have a look at the complete release notes.
