  • MODx Revolution 2.0.3 Tightens Security and Offers Many Fixes and Improvements

    MODx Revolution improves daily and we are seeing ever-increasing use in production sites since it was released this past July. Wider adoption means more people are working with the finer details and we are finding and requesting enhancements and improvements for Revolution. As is to be expected, people are also finding things that don’t work quite right and therefore submitted bug reports to Jira.

    As this release closes a set of vulnerabilities we recommend you upgrade all versions of MODx Revolution 2.0.x to 2.0.3.

    The Revolution 2.0.3 release contains a number of fixes and improvements and here are the highlights:

    - Corrected potential cross-site scripting and file insertion vulnerabilities reported here: http://modxcms.com/forums/index.php/topic,55062.0.html
    - Improvements and fixes for Contexts regarding access and settings.
    - Corrected issue with Elements where "Clear Cache on Save" checkbox wouldn’t store value on save.
    - Enhanced System Info panel to get more details from phpinfo().
    - A number of improvements and fixes to Form Customization
    - Lots more little fixes with big impact.

    Revolution gets better with every release, so download it now to try it or update your existing Revolution sites.
