Dear all,

I'm happy to announce the release of version of WikkaWiki, an  
important security upgrade available for download from the Wikka  

The Wikka Developer Team have been working hard over the last months  
on 1.1.7, a major release that will feature a number of important  
enhancements (both in terms of functionality and configurability). We  
have recently decided to make available to our user community a  
number of security fixes already included in 1.1.7 as a dedicated  

Wikka does not introduce new functionality, but several  
patches against potential security issues. These include, among  
others, a native PHP vulnerability (i.e. not a Wikka bug) affecting  
virtually any application running on PHP<5.2, that has been  
brilliantly patched thanks to the joint efforts of the Wikka and  
GeSHi Developer teams.

We strongly recommend Wikka users to upgrade to Upgrading  
via the installer takes only a few minutes and will make your wiki  

Wikka is available as a tarball and a zip:

New Wikka developers
Last but not least, I'm proud to announce that since the last stable  
release, the Wikka Team has welcomed two new developers.

tables, that will be included in 1.1.7 and whose syntax can be  
previewed here: http://docs.wikkawiki.org/TableMarkup
Brian (BrianKoontz) has brought to Wikka his expertise in the area of  
security and a lot of valuable insights and contributions on how to  
make Wikka easier to extend. Thank you guys for helping us make Wikka  
better :)

A big thanks to all the other members of the Dev Team: DotMG,  
JavaWoman, NilsLindenberg, YanB for the great job they did on the  
code and documentation over the last months.
