[edit] MediaWiki 1.11.0

September 10, 2007

This is the Fall 2007 snapshot release of MediaWiki.

MediaWiki is now using a "continuous integration" development model with quarterly snapshot releases. The latest development code is always kept "ready to run", and in fact runs our own sites on Wikipedia.

Release branches will continue to receive security updates for about a year from first release, but nonessential bugfixes and feature developments will be made on the development trunk and appear in the next quarterly release.

Those wishing to use the latest code instead of a branch release can obtain it from source control: http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Download_from_SVN

[edit] Changes since 1.11.0rc1

A possible HTML/XSS injection vector in the API pretty-printing mode has been found and fixed.

The vulnerability may be worked around in an unfixed version by simply disabling the API interface if it is not in use, by adding this to LocalSettings.php:

$wgEnableAPI = false;

(This is the default setting in 1.8.x.)

Not vulnerable versions:

  • 1.11 >= 1.11.0
  • 1.10 >= 1.10.2
  • 1.9 >= 1.9.4
  • 1.8 >= 1.8.5

Vulnerable versions:

  • 1.11 <= 1.11.0rc1
  • 1.10 <= 1.10.1
  • 1.9 <= 1.9.3
  • 1.8 <= 1.8.4 (if $wgEnableAPI has been switched on)

MediaWiki 1.7 and below are not affected as they do not include the faulty function, however the BotQuery extension is similarly vulnerable unless updated to the latest SVN version.

[edit] Configuration changes since 1.10

  • $wgThumbUpright - Adjust width of upright images when parameter 'upright' is used
  • $wgAddGroups, $wgRemoveGroups - Finer control over who can assign which usergroups
  • $wgEnotifImpersonal, $wgEnotifUseJobQ - Bulk mail options for large sites
  • $wgShowHostnames - Expose server host names through the API and HTML comments
  • $wgSaveDeletedFiles has been removed, the feature is now enabled unconditionally

[edit] New features since 1.10

  • (bug 8890) Enable wiki text for "license" message
  • Throw a showstopper exception when a hook function fails to return a value. Forgetting to give a 'true' return value is a very common error which tends to cause hard-to-track-down interactions between extensions.

[edit] MediaWiki 1.10.2

September 10, 2007

This is a security fix update to the Spring 2007 quarterly release snapshot. A possible HTML/XSS injection vector in the API pretty-printing mode has been found and fixed.

The vulnerability may be worked around in an unfixed version by simply disabling the API interface if it is not in use, by adding this to LocalSettings.php:

$wgEnableAPI = false;

Not vulnerable versions:

  • 1.11 >= 1.11.0
  • 1.10 >= 1.10.2
  • 1.9 >= 1.9.4
  • 1.8 >= 1.8.5

Vulnerable versions:

  • 1.11 <= 1.11.0rc1
  • 1.10 <= 1.10.1
  • 1.9 <= 1.9.3
  • 1.8 <= 1.8.4 (if $wgEnableAPI has been switched on)

MediaWiki 1.7 and below are not affected as they do not include the faulty function, however the BotQuery extension is similarly vulnerable unless updated to the latest SVN version.

[edit] MediaWiki 1.10.1

July 13, 2007

This is a bugfix update to the Spring 2007 quarterly release snapshot. A number of fixes to improve compatibility with PostgreSQL, some versions of MySQL, and some PHP configurations are included.

Changes since 1.10.0:

  • (bug 9417) Uploading new versions of images when using Postgres no longer throws warnings.
  • (bug 9908) Using tsearch2 with Postgres 8.1 no longer gives an error.
  • (bug 9973) Changed size was shown in advanced recentchanges collapsible items with $wgRCShowChangedSized = false.
  • Fixed installation on MyISAM or old InnoDB with charset=utf8, was giving overlong key errors.
  • Fixed zero-padding issues with MySQL 5 binary schema
  • (bug 9820) session.save_path check no longer halts installation, but warns of possible bad values
  • (bug 9978) Fixed session.save_path validation when using extended configuration format, e.g. "5;/tmp"

[edit] MediaWiki 1.10.0rc2

[edit] MediaWiki 1.10.0rc1

April 30, 2007

THIS IS A RELEASE CANDIDATE MADE AVAILABLE FOR TESTING! A FINAL 1.10.0 RELEASE WILL APPEAR WITHIN A FEW DAYS.

MediaWiki is now using a "continuous integration" development model with quarterly snapshot releases. The latest development code is always kept "ready to run", and in fact runs our own sites on Wikipedia.

Release branches will continue to receive security updates for about a year from first release, but nonessential bugfixes and feature developments will be made on the development trunk and appear in the next quarterly release.

Those wishing to use the latest code instead of a branch release can obtain it from source control: http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Download_from_SVN

[edit] Configuration changes

  • A new switch $wgCommandLineDarkBg used by maintenance scripts (parserTests.php). It lets you specify if your terminal use a dark background, the colorized output will be made lighter making things easier to read.
  • The minimum permissions needed to edit a page in each namespace can now be customized via the $wgNamespaceProtection array. By default, editing pages in the MediaWiki namespace requires "editinterface" permission, as before.
  • Allow restriction of autoconfirmed permission by edit count. New global setting $wgAutoConfirmCount (defaulting to zero, naturally).
  • Added rate limiter for Special:Emailuser
  • Private logs can now be created using $wgLogRestrictions
  • (Bug 8590) limited HTML is now always enabled ($wgUserHtml = true).
  • Deprecated $wgUseImageResize, thumbnailing will be enabled unconditionally.

  • Introduce "cascading protection" -- implicit protection on pages transcluded into a page protected with this option enabled
  • (bug 8567) Added hook RawPageViewBeforeOutput just before the text is blown out in action=raw, so extensions might influence the output.
  • (bug 3446) Add user preference to hide page content below diffs, can be overridden by adding diffonly=1 or diffonly=0 to the URL of the diff page
  • Add 'purge' privilege to replace the hardcoded check for login state in determining whether action=purge can be done via GET. Switching the permission on for anons can be helpful for benchmarking.

  • (bug 4133) Allow page protections to be made with an expiry date, in the same format as block expiry dates. Existing protections are assumed to be infinite, as are protections made with the new field left blank.
  • (bug 8535) Allow certain vertical alignment attributes to be used as image keywords
  • (bug 6987) Allow perrow, widths, and heights attributes for <gallery>
  • (bug 3678) Allow disabling MediaWiki:Aboutsite in the same way as MediaWiki:Disclaimers; Also means that if any of the footer links are disabled in the wiki's default language (by setting to "-"), they'll also be disabled in other languages too (e.g. if the user specifies uselang=fr).
  • Sort log types in Special:Log
  • Added a classname ("mw-toolbar-editbutton") and unique IDs to the edit toolbar buttons
  • Hide irrelevant block options in Special:Blockip based on whether an IP address/range or username is listed. (Dynamic using JS.)

PHP sends only 'text/html' by default when the script didn't specify more details, which some inconsiderate browsers consider a license to autodetect the deadly, hard-to-escape UTF-7. This fixes an issue with the Ajax interface error message on MSIE when $wgUseAjax is enabled (not default configuration); this UTF-7 variant on a previously fixed attack vector was discovered by Moshe BA from BugSec: http://www.bugsec.com/articles.php?Security=24
