SWITCHwayf Changes and Version History:
1.15 Release date: 21. October 2011
###################################################################
Please review the 'Specific Update Instructions' in the README file
###################################################################
- A default and custom CSS file can now be used
- Graphical design now is based new SWITCH harmos elements
- Adapted JSON output to use format used by Shibboleth SP
- Renamed some string keys to make them independent from SWITCH
- Added support for the Shibboleth SP 2.4 Discovery Feed JSON output
in Embedded WAYF
- Focus on submit button works better with different browsers
- Invalid values for width and height are now defaulted to auto for
Embedded WAYF
- Fixed a URL composing bug that resulted in a wrong return URL to
the Service Provider if the return parameter did not contain any GET
arguments. Reported by Tom Scavo
- Made implementation behave according to the Discovery Service protocol
specification when it comes to the return parameter. This parameter
is optional in case the DS knows the SP Discovery URL.
Reported by Tom Scavo.
1.14.3 Release date: 4. March 2011
- Fixed a race condition. Thanks go to Robert Basch from MIT for
reporting the issue and providing a patch.
1.14.2 Release date: 15. December 2010
- IDProvider.conf.php and config.php are not overwritten anymore by upgrades
- Logging to syslog now works properly and is more consistent
- Access log now properly locks file
- Unknown category is not shown anymore when there is no other category
- Namespaces are now taken properly into account when parsing SAML2
metadata. Thanks go to Olivier Salaün for reporting this issue and
submitting a patch.
- Improved installation instructions
1.14.1 Release date: 12. November 2010
- Fixed an encoding bug that affected non-ASCII characters in
JavaScripts. Thanks to Prof. Kazutsuna Yamaji for reporting this issue.
- Corrected behaviour of $enableDSReturnParamCheck and
$useACURLsForReturnParamCheck. There won't be an error anymore if an SP
has no <idpdisc:DiscoveryResponse> extension defined. In such a case
there will only be a check if $useACURLsForReturnParamCheck is enabled.
- Fixed a bug in readMetadata.php that prevented CLI execution
- Changed the default configuration option to generate the Embedded WAYF
to false due to some concerns regarding phishing attacks
- Added proper copyright statements to all source code files
1.14 Release date: 9. November 2010
- Added the configuration option wayf_force_remember_for_session to
the Embedded WAYF on request of Wolgang Lierz. This
option allows setting the remember for session checkbox to true
- The 'return' parameter of a Discovery Service request can now be
checked using the idp-discovery-protocol extension or using the FQDN
of all the Service Provider's assertion consumer URLs. The latter
alternative is less secure but still offers better security against
phising attacks. Have a look at config.dist.php and the README for
more detailed explanations on these feature.
- Metadata parsing now uses DOM XML for PHP5 instead of Simple XML
- Fixed a minor HTML error in template for Embedded WAYF
- Sorting within categories works now correctly if SAML2 metadata is
used to generate Identity Provider drop-down list.
Thanks to Prof. Kazutsuna Yamaji
Informatics (NII) for reporting this issue.
- Fixed a minor bug in templates.php that cause PHP warnings to show up
in case an invalid IdP was stored in the cookie.
- Fixed a bug affecting the Kerberos authentication.
Thanks to Robert Basch for reporting these bugs and for
submitting patches.
- Fixed a bug where hidden IdPs would still be shown in Embedded WAYF
