An important security update for version 7.1 will be released at around 7PM GMT today.
3 security issues were found in recent weeks by two security companies. We'll be thanking these companies for advising us in advance of the disclosure of these issues.
This release will also fix a number of other bugs, as it has been a long time since we've needed to make a patch release update (the last release has proved very stable, and development has concentrated on the upcoming version 8.0). In particular, a fix will be released for Google Chrome compatibility, as a bug introduced in a relatively recent Chrome update caused major form layout issues in ocPortal.
Version 8.0 of ocPortal will include all bug fixes and security updates, and beta 1 will also be released soon. However, we will advise users of 7.1 and earlier to patch security issues rather than waiting to upgrade.
