Release Notes: This is the 4.2 release of the ArsDigita Community System (ACS). The previous release was 4.2 beta. This release has minor documentation changes, bug fixes, and some new URI utility procedures.

Specific changes made in this release are:

  • ACS Content Repository. Minor changes to documentation.
  • ACS Core Documentation. Using new company logo on pages.
  • ACS Tcl. In file tcl/apm-file-procs.tcl, modified call to function ad_find_all_files to include option: "-check_file_func apm_include_file_p". This filters out non-APM (e.g. CVS files). Modified tcl/security-procs.tcl to prevent an invalid token_id from being cached. Added file tcl/uri-procs.tcl which contains procedures to parse URIs (Uniform Resource Identifiers) and resolve relative URIs. Thanks to Aaron Swartz for contributing these routines.
  • ACS Templating. Minor changes to documentation formatting.
