Lucee 5.3.9.133 Stable Release

The Lucee Team is proud to announce 5.3.9.133 STABLE. Thanks you to all the community for their ongoing support testing and working with the Lucee Team to make Lucee as robust as possible!

This release took a lot longer than expected, due to all the log4j2 updates and eliminating all the interdependencies between all Extensions, thanks for your patience! The Adobe team are still battling with their own Update for Log4j2.

Highlights

  • Log4j 2.17.2 (Lucee was never vulnerable to Log4j problems)
  • Native M1 Mac JVM support (requires 5.3.9 loader)
  • Updated Extensions (PDF, ESAPI, S3, Compress, Ajax)
  • QoQ improvements, the native engine is much stricter and matches normal RDMBS behavior
  • Enhanced numeric precision support
  • Improved performance for arguments (Testbox runs 12% faster for Lucee)
  • ORM improvements

Available via your Lucee Admin, Forgebox/Commandbox, Lucee Installers, docker builds

Java 17 isn’t supported yet, the installers bundle

  • Java 11.0.15+10
  • Tomcat 9.0.62

Please support the ongoing development of Lucee

Regressions / bugs
We worked really hard to ensure that there are currently no know regressions since 5.3.8 as of this release.

If you find a bug, please always post here to to the mailing list first, don’t just file bugs

Bundled Extensions

You need to be running this matrix of extensions if you want to ensure there are no traces of Log4J v1 on your Lucee server.

Roadmap

Next up is Lucee 6.0, here is the board for the sprint Log in with Atlassian account

With Lucee 6.0, as a major release, we are going to make some breaking changes, old insecure defaults or features which don’t work as expected are going to be addressed. Let us know if you have any suggestions in the thread below!

Can you maybe make it a config option in 6, that way if someone is running insanely old code, it doesn’t break?

Toggle it on by default, in the session area?

OHHH MY GOD!!! What an AWESOME release! Not just the number of important bug fixes, but the new features Web.cfc and configImport are great. :tada: Lucee 6.0 is knocking the door!

Make what an option ?
The addToken stuff ?
It’s already got a per-application setting, so I assume Lucee just changes the server default and you can turn it back on per-project

Does anyone know what version of the Redis Extension is good to go? I’ve tried the latest 2 versions but we’re having issues deploying the extension.

We’re running Lucee in Docker building against Tomcat. Dropping the Lucee-Lite jar in, then bringing the system up having dropped the extensions we use in the deploy folder.

The current extensions we’re using are:

compress-extension-1.0.0.7.lex
esapi-extension-2.2.4.5.lex
lucee.image.extension-1.0.0.42.lex
org.lucee.axis.extension-1.4.0.37-SNAPSHOT.lex
org.lucee.mssql-7.4.1.jre8.lex
pdf-extension-1.1.0.7.lex
redis.extension-3.0.0.39-BETA.lex
s3-extension-0.9.4.154.lex

When the image is finally running the Redis extension hasn’t deployed and the deploy log says:

We sometimes have this same issue installing via the UI… but sometimes it does work, then upgrading/downgrading the latest versions work…

My initial thoughts (which I’m about to test) is that we deploy the current extensions, then bring down, bring up and deploy just the redis hoping that S3 has deployed properly hoping it fixes what looks like the issue…

[org.lucee.aws-core [68](R 68.0)] osgi.wiring.package; (osgi.wiring.package=com.amazonaws.services.s3.internal)] Unresolved requirement

Update: Nope, the double deploy didn’t seem to work, so we’ve rolled back to redis.extension-2.9.0.4-BETA for the time being

Docker builds are up!

I always tried to understand what the Lucee development team was working on.
I’m happy that this sprint is public.

Were the others in the past too?

Thanks for your work guys! :sparkling_heart:

5 posts were split to a new topic: Errors upgrading to 5.3.9

Currently, we have one outstanding regression for 5.3.9

https://luceeserver.atlassian.net/issues/?jql=labels%20%3D%20"reg539"

Please try out the latest snapshot 5.3.9.140 and let us know if there are any others we’ve missed

Now up to four, including logs going missing, again :frowning:

nah, there’s only one outstanding, the two are in QA, one is already marked deployed and the last one is currently being solved, aka in development

RE: Logs - I believe that fix was applied to 5.3.9.137-SNAPSHOT … we’re deploying 5.3.9.140-SNAPSHOT to our dev/test environments today to shake any other issues loose. :crossed_fingers: nothing comes up.

the 5.3.9.140-SNAPSHOT is up on docker hub for testing too

https://hub.docker.com/r/lucee/lucee/tags

I think I’ve solved the the last step with automating this whole triggering docker builds process, so hopefully we will have docker images for every SNAPSHOT for now on

If Lucee starts pushing it’s Docker images in automated fashion, that means we can too, at least for our Desktop day-to-day images.

Currently feeling like I just bought a $3K paper-weight (Apple M1 MBP). Feeling so out-of-my-depth since I know very little about architectures and platforms. When you say that this version is M1 compatible, does that mean that the nginx and JDK that come in some of the builds are also M1 compatible? I’m hoping that upgrading locally - even if I’m running an older version in prod - would at least make local-development possible.

you mean the docker builds? pretty sure they are all intel ATM

Ah, ok :confused: I saw an older post about running the build locally in order to create a ARM version for Apple M1. When I have some more time (and confidence), I’ll take a look at that.

Apparently it should Just Work to run Intel Docker images on an ARM Mac : Run x86 (Intel) and ARM based images on Apple Silicon (M1) Macs? - Docker Desktop for Mac - Docker Community Forums

We never got Tomcat to start correctly though. We don’t have any ARM Macs anymore. It’ll be an issue at some point in future though.
