Foswiki Release 2.1.6

Foswiki - The Free and Open Source Wiki

Foswiki is an enterprise collaboration and information sharing tool targeted for professional use in many types of organizations: from small businesses to multi-nationals, from one-product open source groups, to worldwide research networks.

Foswiki is a wiki: fundamentally, a website with editable web pages. It looks like a normal web site but it encourages contributions, edits, updates, questions, and answers from its users. It's a powerful way of enabling a community to communicate asynchronously using intranet and public Internet websites. Foswiki is simple to learn and use. It aims to provide a transparent way for you to publish and exchange your ideas with others over the web and eliminates the one-webmaster syndrome of outdated intranet content.

Foswiki is a structured wiki with tools that enable users without programming skills to build powerful yet simple applications to process information and support workflows. Developers can extend the functionality of Foswiki with plugins.

Foswiki is backwards compatible with content generated on all previous Foswiki versions, and even content and many plugins from TWiki installations (Foswiki ships with a TWikiCompatibilityPlugin, thus enabling most extensions made for TWiki to work in Foswiki. TWiki® is a registered trademark of Peter Thoeny.)

Foswiki is released under the GNU General Public License.

Known issues

For up-to-date information, see Known issues of Foswiki 2.1

Use of non-default {Store}{Encoding}

WARNING About {Store}{Encoding}: If you intend to use high-bit characters in attachment filenames (such as umlauts and accents), then links to these attachments on Foswiki pages will not work on a non-utf-8 Store without modification. This is because Foswiki works internally using Unicode, but the store saves files to disk using your chosen {Store}{Encoding}. Running the Store with other than utf-8 encoding is considered a transitional step and not recommended for long-term operation. The strongly recommended solution is to convert your store to UTF8 at the earliest opportunity.

A partial workaround is implemented in the PubLinkFixupPlugin This Plugin will attempt to rewrite broken links. This generally gets linked images and other attachments working. However the TinyMCEPlugin is still unable to render image links while editing a topic.

See Item13696 for up-to-date details.

Important changes in Foswiki 2.1.6


This is a critical Security Release, addressing CVE-2018-7446. In addition to installing this patch release, site adminstrators should follow the recommended changes in Support.SecurityAlert-CVE-2018-7446 to ensure that certain critical topic are protected.

Additional default topic protections

A number of "operational" topics shipped in the Main and Sandbox web are not protected from modifications by users. This release adds an ACL to most of the default topics shipped in the Main and Sandbox webs to restrict modifications to the Admin group.

The _default template web does not provide individual topic protections. The site administrators should customize the desired permissions before allowing users to create new webs.

Issues with NatEditPlugin Permissions tab not supporting certain ACLs.

It was discovered that the NatEditPlugin under some conditions will lose topic ACLs:
  • When a topic is copied, the ACLs in the source topic are not applied to the new topic.
  • If a topic contains crafted ACLs set using the More topic actions -> Edit settings dialog, they can be lost when the topic is edited by NatEdit. Specifically:
    • DENYTOPIC* ACLs (except for DENY = WikiGuest) are not supported by NatEdit and were silently discarded.
NatEditPlugin version 9.21 (shipped with this release) resolves this issue by disabling the "Permissions" tab when unsupported ACLs are detected.a

Support for CaptchaPlugin in User Registration

A change has been made to the validate.js javascript used by the UserRegistration page. This will permit easier integration of the Captcha Plugin to the default user registration page.

Important changes in Foswiki 2.1.5

New zone added as a default zone.

The body zone has been added as a default zone. It is rendered at the end of the body, just before the <body&gt tag. This improves compatibity of PatternSkin with Foswiki:Extensions.NatSkin. A number of extensions released for NatSkin will not function correctly without this zone. No changes are required unless you have replaced the foswiki.tmpl or foswiki.pattern.tmpl with a local version.

Change in HTTP status return for authentication failures.

The fix for Item14445 changes the HTTP status return for authentiation errors from 401 - Unauthorized to 200 - OK when returning the Template Login screen. The 401 status is not valid unless it returns a WWW-Authentication challenge that can be processed by the agent. This is only valid when using HTTP authentication. The REST and JSONRPC actions will still return a 401, so that it can be handled by javascript.

Note: This change requires a corresponding fix for the LdapContrib. If you use the LdapContrib, you should not apply this release until an update of LdapContrib is available.

Running Foswiki on a Windows based web server

This release fixes a critical error that prevented Foswiki from being installed on Windows. Foswiki mistakenly used a reserved filename for a module which blocked installaion on Windows. This has been corrected in this release.

Important changes in Foswiki 2.1.3

Security issues addressed in this release.

This release addresses 7 Severity 3 security vulnerabilities which are described in further detail in Support.SecurityAlert-XSSIssues-2017-0201. See Security Alert Process for more details on how the Foswiki project handles security issues.

Possible data loss in DataForms

A possible data loss issue was discovered in DataForms migrated from Foswiki 1.x. A new configuration setting ({LegacyFormfieldNames}) was added to restore the old Foswiki 1.x behavior.

If your site uses DataForms that use non-Ascii field names, the form data will require manual migration, or you must enable {LegacyFormfieldNames} in the configuration.
  • Releases prior to Foswiki 2.0 stripped characters other than A-Z, a-z, 0-9 and _. So a field named Fühler would be stored as Fhler.
  • The same DataForms definition on Foswiki 2.0 would be stored as Fühler.
With the mismatch of field name, the form field will be lost when the topic is saved.

If you do not enable {LegacyFormfieldNames}, then you will need to find and update the META:FIELD definitions in the topics. This would need to be done external to Foswiki.
  %META:FIELD{name="Fhler" title="Fühler" value="123"}%
would need to be changed to
  %META:FIELD{name="Fühler" title="Fühler" value="123"}%

See Item14256 for more details.

The optional (expert) configuration parameter {Sessions}{CookieRealm} now applies to the Domain of all cookies generated by the Foswiki core. In addition, if your site is accessed over HTTPS, all cooikes will now have the Secure flag set. In prior releases, only the Foswiki session cookie used the CookieRealm and Secure flag. After upgrade to 2.1.3, users may lose saved preferences and/or fail strikeone validation due to the cookie domain change. If using a non-default CookieRealm setting, users may need to delete all domain cookies after this update.

User Registration

The stored format of pending registrations has been changed to perl "Storable" in order to better support Unicode user names and other registration fields. As this format is binary and not generally human readable, a new report: System.PendingRegistrations has been added. It shows registrations that are awating email verification and registrations awating approval. Registrations awaiting approval can be directly approved from the new page.

Any existing pending registrations should be resolved prior to upgrading to Foswiki 2.1.3. Existing submissions will be lost.

Usability on small screens

A user contributed WebSideBar toggle button can be enabled. This renders a small "hamburg" icon to restore the side bar when viewing Foswiki on a small device. See System.PatternSkinCssCookbookSidebarToggle.

Configuration bootstrap

Bootstrap should be able to detect operation behind a proxy server, and will try harder to get the protocol (HTTP or HTTPS) and the hostname used by the user correct. If bootstrap fails to properly set up a proxy configuration, we would appreciate bug reports that will help us improve operation. Note that operation behind a chain of multiple proxy servers is not currently detected.

Page cache tuning.

A new optional (expert) configuration parameter {Cache}{TrackInternalLinks} is available for tuning how the cache tracks dependencies of topic references. Default is on which is the same as prior releases. Foswiki will record every topic link as a dependency. This can result in extrememly large cache dependency tables, especially when using a WebLeftBar that displays a large number of webs and/or topics.

Set this to authenticated to track these topic references only for logged in users. Set to off (not recommended) to disable all reference link tracking.

The side effect of not tracking a link dependency is that cached pages will not reflect updates that remove or add a topic.

Note that the PageCache should be globally flushed whenever any configuration changes are made, or after updating Foswiki or any Extensions.


This release updates to a newer maintenance version of JQuery. You should visit bin/configure and select the updated versions of JQuery.

Important changes in Foswiki 2.1.1

Page Caching

The Foswiki PageCache has added another index on the dependencies table. After installing this update, you should issue the refresh=all option to drop the foswiki cache tables, and allow them to be recreated. This will create the new index.

New CPAN dependency, and changes

Due to upstream changes, the Perl LWP package has been split into two packages. You may need to install LWP::Protocol::https for https support in extension installation and accessing remote sites with the INCLUDE macro.

Important changes in Foswiki 2.1


The %HTTP% and %HTTPS% macros are deprecated and will be removed in a future release. These macros now restrict the available information to the Accept-language and User-Agent headers. The list of available headers is now configurable.

The PatternSkin created contentheader and contentfooter as aliases for the beforetext and aftertext templates and deprecated the older templates. As this broke compatibity with other skins, that deprecation has been reversed. For best compatibiliy continue to use beforetext and aftertext.

API Change

The Foswiki API version is incremented to version 2.4 in Foswiki 2.1.0. Foswiki 2.1 permits template names using Unicode characters.

New Perl CPAN dependencies!

Foswiki now requires CPAN:Email::MIME. Foswiki will be unable to send email without this module. SystemRequirements has more details on CPAN dependencies and package names for most *nix distributions.

Enhanced Registration form

The registration form now accepts the parameter templatename to override the default NewUserTemplate. In addition the registration topics have been restructured to permit multiple custom registration pages. Customization of the registration form is greatly simplified.

Easier to restrict access to the System web.

Some sites prefer to block access to the System web documentation for guest users. Duplicated content can result in lowered search engine rank, so it is advantageous to restrict access to the System web. Foswiki now includes ALLOWTOPICVIEW settings for critical system topics that are required for guest access.

Changes in permitted characters in topic and attachment names.

Foswiki has split the topic and attachment name filters. The topic name filter has become more restrictive. Attachment names now permit embedded spaces, and attachments with spaces will no longer be renamed to underscores. If you would prefer to use the old behavior, enable $Foswiki::cfg{AttachmentReplaceSpaces}.

Action Required: The colon (:) has been removed from the list of legal characters permitted in topic names. The colon was in conflict with the InterWiki links. If your existing topic use the colon in topic names, you should remove the colon from the configuration setting $Foswiki::cfg{NameFilter}.

Improvements in International Character Set support

Foswiki 2.1 has further improved support for utf-8 based character sets. Topics and data forms can use utf-8 characters. They will be properly rendered and preserved during edit. The Foswiki core has been fully converted to utf-8 and unicode. All encoding / decoding is done "at the edge", when reading from / writing to the Foswiki store.

  • Foswiki 2.1 International support
    • Emails sent by Foswiki now fully support International Character Sets.
    • Foswiki now uses NFC Normalization of Unicode characters. This greatly improves compatibility with Operating Systems like OSX which use NFD form characters by default.
    • Template names are no longer restricted to ASCII characters.

  • Foswiki 2.0 International support
    • New sites will use utf-8 by default. Internationalizaiton should just work.
    • Sites migrating data from a previous installation have two choices:
      • Set {Store}{Encoding} to match the previous ={Site}{CharSet}. (Default was iso-8859-1)
      • Migrate the data to utf-8 by using the tools/ script. This is the recommended solution.
    • Support for Locales is still known to have issues. {UseLocales} should not be enabled in the configuration.

ALERT! ACTION REQUIRED If you are upgrading an existing system, you should review the existing data and determine if migration to utf-8 should be performed. See the UpgradeGuide for more details. Note that the topic and attachment name filters no longer filter international characters, so migration to utf-8 is strongly recommended.

Due to the extensive internal changes, extensions may require changes for compatibility with this release.
