WebDNA FastCGI (7.0) beta Bug List


Fixed: Certificate Accelerator validation routine fails out if using a wrong number, and causes the page not reloading.
Fixed: libmysqlclient.so.15/libmysqlclient.so.16 problem for the glibcv3 version
Changed: The 6.2 code always reloaded the db after 100 lines, as a security for users who choose to never commit to disk. Changed to 1,000 lines.
Fixed: the [append] tag was writing to DISK instead of writing to RAM. It now depends on the AutoCommit value in prefs.
Fixed: [formvariables] context bug when using ENCTYPE="multipart/form-data": issue with the processing of multipart post.
Fixed: [sendmail] problem with the FreeBSD version because of a threading problem. Fixed by forcing it to use libpthread instead of libc_r
Fixed: bug when the [math] variable name includes a number like in [math]thetest3=43[/math]
Fixed: triggers now work with unlicensed version
Fixed: the triggers are not properly working
Fixed: [returnraw] - http status codes was not working on all platforms due of Apache 2.0 changes in the API and also the WebDNA module was not accommodating all status codes.
Fixed: [createdate] and [moddate] were being confused on unix machines in both the [listfiles] context and [fileinfo] context.
Fixed: [date format=] was not working on all platforms
Fixed: mysql Windows bug
Fixed: xerces only works in 32bit mode under OSX
Fixed: [setmimeheader] is now working as expected. Example: [setmimeheader name=Content-Type&value=text/xml]
Fixed: [shownext] was not properly working under OSX with apache
Fixed: PATH_TRANSLATED under OSX and Solaris
Fixed: <!--HAS_WEBDNA_TAGS_ENCRYPTED_2--> was not working
Fixed: [setcookie] was not writing anymore to the browser.
Fixed: [redirect] was not working
Fixed: Using GET, like test.dna?thetest=thisisasmalltest was passing only "[thetest]"
Fixed: Some fixes for potential URL volnurabilities.
Fixed: [appendfile file=test.html]More text[/appendfile] was creating an empty file when it should have written "More text".
Fixed: [writefile file=test.html]Some text[/writefile] was creating an empty file when it should have written "Some text".
Fixed: [OS X only] [ipaddress] not working
Fixed: [OS X only] [referrer] was showing "FastCGI"
Fixed: the delete command could delete items in a database, even when it is not allowed as a (URL) command.
Fixed: Introducing an URL variable name using a context name was producing strange results. The ?text= bug is now checking for known contexts, and if it is not a known context, it does the appropriate thing. For example, the variable setting via GET is working, but the ?text= is blocked
