Doctrine Security

When using Doctrine in a project it is always a security critical component because it talks directly to your database. As such security is very important to us. In security however, context is important and providing you with query capabilities we have to expose you to the risk of SQL injections.

Doctrine cannot prevent you from building SQL injections into your applications and so can no other DBAL, because it would require hiding SQL completely. But hiding SQL completly is not wanted, because it is such a powerful language.

Therefore it is still your responsibility to make sure that you are using Doctrine correctly when working with SQL.

Read the rest of the article on the Doctrine website. Additional information on security concerns when utilizing Doctrine is now available in the respective repository's and also here: DBAL Security and ORM Security.

QA Testing for 1.3.7 Begun

Please consider helping with the Quality Assurance (QA) testing cycle of Core 1.3.7. Details of how you can help can be found in the Core ticket.

You can find the details of what has been updated in the 1.3.7 changelog.

Short development update

Core 1.3.6 was released on 7 November 2013 as a security patch for the 1.3.5 release which took place nearly a year earlier on 7 December 2012.

The main development was occurring in what was originally intended to be a minor release in the 1.3.x series but this has been taking too long. This has required a change in plans.

As of 15 February 2014 the following changes have been made in the Core repository
  • The 1.3 branch is renamed to 1.4
  • The release-1.3 branch is renamed to 1.3
  • The master branch remains intact as is and is intended as a 2.0 branch

The intention is to release Core 1.3.7 soon with all of the minor patches that have been floating out in the community as well as a couple other minor corrections. QA testing should begin on this release soon.

Core 1.4.0 will include many other improvements and fixes over 1.3.x series and also include a Forward Compatibility layer pointing toward the Core 2.0.0 release. There should be very few (if any) Backward Compatibility breaks from the 1.3.x series.

Core 2.0.0 will drop all backward compatibility for the 1.x series and require new extension structures, reliance on only new core technologies (symfony, twig, etc).

Timelines for anything beyond Core 1.3.7 are of course unknown and should not be assumed based on this information.

What a wonderful day :-)

I am happy and proud to show my very first module! Of course it is a simple one. But see yourself: VerySimpleDownload

This is made with ModuleStudio. I have to say it is really easy. A lot of community members know me as a user. And I am still only a user. But I can now create my own module icon_smile .

How did I proceed with my module? First I made the model with the current version of ModuleStudio. It do have an outdated generator but the webgen is available to provide me actual code. So I generated my module there. This is my guarantee to have the latest code running for 1.3.6.

After the module with the version 2.4 was not qualified for Zikula 1.3.5 and was only developed sporadically, Reviews now is there with the version 2.4.1. The reason for that is a request of an user on Github and the circumstance that Reviews is not so complex.

Vendors: The State of jQuery 2013

My fellow web developers, the state of jQuery is strong.

On January 14, 2006, John Resig attended BarCampNYC and made a presentation about his new project called jQuery. In a contemporary blog post John said, “This code revolutionizes the way you can get JavaScript to interact with HTML.” It was a bold statement, but in retrospect we know it was an understatement.
