Lucee Stable Release

This is a maintenance / security release, as the Lucee team considers XML XXE mitigations are important, so they are now on by default.

There is also an important logging performance regression fixed since which means you should be upgrading

No changes since except a small admin update notification change which doesn’t affect this release

But what’s a XML XXE you ask?

The 5.3 branch is only getting important security updates, as per our roadmap

We recommend updating to 5.4 as that has all the underlying java libraries updated, something which we cannot do with 5.3 due to various older extensions


But if you can’t upgrade just yet for any reason form 5.3.10 to 5.4.2, here’s a 5.3.11-RC

No Installers will be published for this older release
