I'm happy to announce that Bacula-Web 8.0.0-rc2 is available.

This is the second release candidate for next major version 8.0.0.

This version is quiet stable but I would recommend to use it with cautions in a production environment.

What's new ?

  • General
    • Users authentication feature added
  • Test page
    • Check if application/assets/protected is writable
  • User and general settings
    • Users can reset their password
    • Possibility to add more users from general settings page
  • Security
    • Fixed many SQL injection and XSS vulnerabilities (see fixed bugs)
  • Development
    • Large amount of code improvment and cleanup
    • Upgrade moment/moment to version 2.19.2
    • Add Bootstrap validator to Composer's requirements

More details about this release can be found in the Download page.

What next ?

There will be probably one or two release candidates before the final major release (version 8.0.0)

For more details, please have a look at Bacula-Web 8.0.0-rc3 roadmap.
