New Development Release: Qdig 20050417

This release refines and clarifies the user-definable path settings ($qdig_url, $fs_bat_path, and $url_base_path) and adds a message in the security notice about setting a world-writable File Creation Mask for people who set 777 permissions on qdig-files/ during installation.

Notes:

This release refines and clarifies the user-definable path settings ($qdig_url, $fs_bat_path, and $url_base_path) and puts these three in their own settings section. The diagnostic messages now include information about the base_path settings if they're set.

People who can't set SGID permissions on the qdig-files/ directory during installation now will get a message about setting a world- writable File Creation Mask with (umask(000)). This will allow them to easily manage caption and resampled image files via FTP at the expense of some security risk.

Changes:

  • Refined the path settings and set them apart in their own section.
    • Renamed $abs_fs_path to $fs_base_path.
    • Renamed $abs_url_path to $url_base_path.
    • Added some base_path diagnostic messages.
  • Added some special instructions for "777" permissions to the Security Check.

See CHANGELOG.txt for a complete list of changes.
