Release Notes Updated: Mar 5, 2013

WHAT’S NEW

This minor release of Shares, version 1.0.3, provides the following corrections and improvements:

  1. addresses nginx security vulnerabilities
  2. corrects Active Directory performance issues
  3. addresses performance issues for LDAP queries against large datasets

 

For new features and changes introduced with the major release, Shares 1.0, please see the release notes for Shares 1.0.0.

ISSUES FIXED IN THIS RELEASE

  1. (#19707, #19708) Updated nginx to address security vulnerabilities.
  2. Fixed Active Directory performance issues.
  3. (#18268) Fixed performance issue for LDAP queries against large datasets.

KNOWN ISSUES

  1. (#12883) When searching (browsing) recursively, the sort parameter is ignored.
  2. (#14519) The path to a share (relative to a docroot) can be seen by a Shares user. For example, if a user tries to download "/file_1" from a share at "/docroot/share_dir/file_1", the fasp URL contains "/share_dir/file_1" even though the user only knows the file as "/file_1". The path "/share_dir/file_1" can be seen in the AJAX response from Shares (part of the fasp URL) and in the Connect logs.
  3. (#14532) The transfer rate and encryption settings in Shares can be circumvented by users if they manually change the fasp URL before submitting. Workaround: In order to enforce the settings, you need to set the desired values in the aspera.conf file on the node.
  4. (#15396) The transfer fails when attempting to download special files like symlinks, block and character device files, socket, etc.
  1. (#18235) After restarting “MYSQL Server (Aspera)” under Windows services, the “Delayed Job” process stops running and must be manually started.

SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS

  1. Windows XP, 2003, Vista, 2008, 7 and 8
  2. Linux (RedHat or Debian) with kernel 2.4 or higher and libc version GLIB 2.3.4 or higher.
