Nephthys is not dead!
A lot of work has been done what you can see from the commit messages in our GIT repository.
But after four years it is time to bundle again a new release file - and this is Nephthys 1.6!
This release contains some bug fixes addressing issues opening WebDAV folders in Internet Explorer and ensures compatibility with PHP 5.3. A dutch translation has been contributed and a built in file manager allowing file uploads via browsers.
DenyFilter and ListOptions has been adapted to ensure no recusrive directory listing is possible.
Also the NLST command is now explicitly blocked.
Some days behind its deadline, Nephthys 1.5 has been released today.
Included are some bug-fixes like for solving problems with quoting input data and suppressing some PHP notice-messages. In addition the cache-path for the Smarty template engine is now configurable which was necessary for building a Debian package. That one is now available for download on Nephthys homepage.
Users default bucket-expiration time is now manageable for admin's via the user-management too. To get a better overview, Nephthys now displays details about buckets like amount of files and directories within as also the last modification time.
Because of heavy christmas biscuits baking the public release of 1.5 will be delayed for some days.
While directory-listing was disabled, it was still possible to upload files into the ftp-root directory ("/") and as well reading files from within this directory. But for this it required to know the exact filename of objects within the ftp-root directory.
The example proftpd.conf has been adapted to deny those actions.
If you are using this example-configuration, you should consider to update it!
Release 1.4 comes with some new features like notifying expired buckets to their owners, column-sort and a force-profile-update option.
Bugs like having problems with fixed font-size, deleting buckets and Exception viewing have been solved.
Version 1.3 - the new public release of Nephthys has been published today.
With the previously introduced multi-language support in v1.2, several contributors now provided translations for Nephthys. This release contains (next to the already available German translation) a Russian, Italian, Spanish and Dutch translation!
The local address-book provides now an extra field to store the fullname of contacts. During creating buckets, auto-suggestion now also works for multiple receivers. A new "deny-password-change" flag has been introduced to hide the password-change-options for automatically-created, server-authenticated users.
When using the notification feature of Nephthys, clicks on "Notify" will be confirmed now with a dialog message.
With one day delay, version 1.2 of Nephthys has been released.
The major highlight of this version is the newly introduced multi-language support. This release comes already with a German translation. The upcoming 1.3 version will then most probably already contain a Russian translation too.
A new privilege-flag for unprivileged users make it possible, that this kind of users can also create never-expiring buckets.
Nephthys 1.2 public release will be delayed one or two days.
A per-user address-book has been included by this release. This address-book will record entered email addresses and will suggest them automatically in the GUI the next time a bucket gets created.
Also the handling of creating buckets has been improved a bit - a new bucket-successfully-created page has been inserted which immediately show information to access the bucket. The bucket-list on the "Start Page" has been improved too, now allowing managing buckets easier.
Some bugfixes have also been applied resolving some design issues, clearing PHP notice & warning messages.
Also security has been improved by taking care of SQL injection and authentication bugs.
