Patch for Abyss Web Server 1.0.3 released

August 19, 2002

Aprelium Technologies has released a patch for Abyss Web Server 1.0.3. It fixes two bugs related to URLs decoding (thanks to Auriemma Luigi who discovered them.)

Users of Abyss Web Server version 1.0 and 1.0.3 are urgently asked to update.

Abyss Web Server 1.0.3 packages available for download starting from today include this patch.

If you are not sure whether your installed version needs patching or not, check Abyss Web Server's main window or terminal. If the copyright notice does not include Abyss Web Server 1.0.3 (Patch 3), patching is needed.
