Etherpad v1.1.5 contains a mountain of various bugfixes and some support for new plugins that will make your life even more awesome.
Yesterday we discovered a bug that allowed malformed URLs to crash Etherpad Lite. We published a patch yesterday to develop and released 1.1.3 today for general consumption.
Please note these bugs have existed in Etherpad Lite since we adopted the express framework so it is important you update today.
Please “git pull” or head over etherpad.org and click download to get the latest version.
Note: Online activists and ISP’s stopped the attack from spreading too wildly by disabling the internet connectivity of the attacker. Whilst we can’t promote this type of activity it did help and our thanks goes out to them.
We’re planning our first ever USA hack / meet up in March 2013 kindly being hosted by Mozilla. Feel free to share your thoughts/suggestions/ideas etc. on the pad :)
