Release Notes for Archiva 1.3.8

The Apache Archiva team would like to announce the release of Archiva 1.3.8. Archiva is available for download from the web site.

Archiva is an application for managing one or more remote repositories, including administration, artifact handling, browsing and searching.

If you have any questions, please consult:

Compatibility Changes

  • If upgrading from versions of Archiva earlier than 1.2.2, the list of libraries in wrapper.conf has changed. If you have customized your copy of wrapper.conf, please update it for compatibility with the version distributed with the current release.

Security Vulnerabilities

  • A remote code execution (CVE-2010-1870) vulnerability has been reported against 1.3.5 and earlier versions.
  • CSRF (CVE-2011-1026) and XSS security (CVE-2011-1077) vulnerabilities have been reported against 1.3.4 and earlier versions.
  • An XSS security vulnerability (CVE-2011-0533) is present in 1.3.3 and earlier.
  • A CSRF security vulnerability (CVE-2010-3449) is present in 1.3.2 and earlier.

It is important that users using lower versions of Archiva upgrade to this version (or higher).

See Archiva Security for more details.

New in Archiva 1.3

Forced re-scan

Sometimes it is necessary to force Archiva to rescan your repository, regardless of file modification dates. There is now an option to do this directly from the administration interface

Improved memory usage

Use of the indexing module has been thoroughly reviewed and some suboptimal memory usage has been improved, requiring less memory for long running scan operations (in turn improving performance).

Audit logging of uploads

Archiva's reporting user interface can now show audit information for artifacts uploaded to repositories after the installation of Archiva 1.3.

Archiva 1.0

Released: 23 November 2007

First production release.

History

Archiva was started in November 2005, building a simple framework on top of some existing repository conversion tools within the Maven project. Initial development focused on repository conversion, error reporting, and indexing. From January 2006 a web application was started to visualise the information and to start incorporating functionality from the unmaintained maven-proxy project.

Development continued through many stops and starts. Initial versions of Archiva were built from source by contributors, and the first alpha version was not released until April 2007. Some significant changes were made to improve performance and functionality in June 2007 and over the next 6 months and a series of alpha and beta releases, a concerted effort was made to release the 1.0 version.

Archiva became an Apache "top level project" in March 2008.
