Changelog

All the changes since the introduction of our changelog.

Thursday, 7th February 2019

  • New
    Our PGP public key is now published on our website. If you would like to encrypt your communication with us, you can do it now.
  • New
    Our changelog now supports Markdown to make it easier to link to features of pages within our website.
  • Improved
    Added password rehashing mechanism and convert passwords to Argon2i/Argon2id. We added a mechanism to rehash user passwords during login if the default hashing algorithm has changed. This ensures user password hashes (we don’t store the password itself) are as safely created as possible. The chosen algorithm depends on the PHP version used on the server.

  • New
    Added a well-Known URL for Changing Passwords. This will help our users to find the way to change their password from e.g. a password manager.
  • Improved
    Clearer wording for create and suggest event action and some page titles.

    Some strings where not properly escaped when printed inside the HTML context. Because of our strict content security policy this was not a security risk, but we changed it now to be applied everywhere consistently.
