Hello. PmWiki version 2.2.35 was published today, and is available at :


This release fixes a critical PHP injection vulnerability discovered today. 
PmWiki versions 2.2.X, 2.1.X, 2.0.X and 2.0.beta33 and newer are vulnerable. 
When you upgrade, please read carefully the Release notes for all PmWiki 
versions since yours.

If you cannot upgrade, it is recommended to disable Searches at the earliest 
opportunity (even if your wiki skin doesn't have a search form). Add to 
config.php such a line:

  if ($action == 'search') $action = 'browse';

If your old version wiki allows editing by not entirely trusted visitors, even 
on limited pages like a WikiSandbox, you should also disable PageLists. Add to 
config.php this line:

  $EnablePageList = 0;

This version has an important change for international wikis: the XLPage() 
function no longer loads encoding scripts such as xlpage-utf-8.php. When you 
upgrade, you need to include those scripts from config.php, before calling 

  include_once("scripts/xlpage-utf-8.php"); # if your wiki uses UTF-8

All links can now have tooltip titles. Previously, only images and external 
links could have tooltip titles, now this feature is enabled for internal 
links. To set a tooltip title, add it in quotes after the link address:

  [[Main.HomePage"This is a tooltip title"]]
  [[Main.HomePage"This is a tooltip title"|Home]]
  [[http://www.pmwiki.org"Home of PmWiki"]]
  Attach:image.jpg"Tooltip title of the image"

The following new upload extensions were added: svg, xcf, ogg, flac, ogv, mp4, 
webm, odg, epub. A couple of minor optimizations were added (MarkupExpressions 
and rendering of page history) and the documentation was updated.
