Hello Lovers of Lucee! Time for another of our regularly scheduled sprint retrospectives. The May sprint produced the latest Release Candidate: 184.108.40.206-RC, which went live on June 8.
I was especially pleased with this release, because it tested our ability to have the dev team stick to a strict schedule (the monthly sprints), while also being flexible enough to adjust our development focus as needed. The first test was responding to a potential security vulnerability related to ZIP archives, and the second was the need to put in some time working on closures functionality in 5.3. Both problems arose near the end of the May sprint, and while a few tickets did get pushed to the July sprint, this was mostly not due to the time constraints imposed by reacting to these two unplanned outside-the-sprint development efforts.
Regarding the security vulnerability, it’s been discussed ever so briefly here:
In addition, we had extensive discussion in the private security forum, and of course internally on the dev team and amongst the LAS members. It’s not an especially severe vulnerability, but we nonetheless patched it immediately, as per our security protocol. We will have a formal public post about the patch in the next couple of weeks. If anyone has any questions/concerns in the meantime, please don’t hesitate to let us know.
