we have recently received the results of a security audit performed by Mozilla and have since sought to close the biggest gaping loopholes.
The result of this effort is version 1.2.9 of Etherpad lite, which is probably the most secure version released so far. I’d also like to thank Sebastian Nerz for reporting a massive security issue last week.
Sadly, the latest patches have apparently caused some issues themselves that affect user experience and import functionality, so there’s still some work for us to do.Still, this shouldn’t hold you back from updating! For a complete list of changes see the changelog
Grab the latest version either via a simple `git pull` or via etherpad.org
