ImpressCMS 1.3.3 Final is released!Published by Skenow on 2012/10/4 (2492 reads)
We are very happy to announce the availability of ImpressCMS 1.3.3 Final, the latest release in the next-generation ImpressCMS 1.3 branch. In addition to the updated core of ImpressCMS, 3 core modules also have been updated - Banners, Profile and Protector.
Download 1.3.3 Final
The new release is available for download on the ImpressCMS 1.3 product page.
Most Significant Changes
This release has a major change to our password encryption methods and also to some of our authentication methods. Recent news stories about major sites having their user database hacked and passwords leaked has left many administrators scrambling to patch their sites or find new solutions. ImpressCMS has and always will have security as a primary focus. When you upgrade an existing site with 1.3.3, all the current passwords will be expired and users will need to reset their passwords upon their next login.
This is not to say our previous versions were insecure, we have been using 2-part Salt Keys & offering multiple hashing algorhythms since ImpressCMS 1.1. But these improvements to the system are very significant & as such we we feel it is in your best interests to force the password expiry. When users reset their passwords they will all be protected by the newer system.
Other improvements and updates
These are the most significant changes. For full details, please have a look at the milestone information you can find on Assembla.
The goal of the ImpressCMS Project is to stimulate and promote the open source nature of the CMS in both the core and its modules and establish itself as the premiere CMS by expanding the system to meet the needs of their users now and well into the future.
