In May the planned code security audit of the 1.5 code was executed, the report delivered to us in the last week of May. Xander, Chris and myself went through it in detail and last week discussed the various recommendations. There are some details we need to improve on but overall the report was a positive result; no major structural issues were found. I dare say we’ve learned from the previous audits and have become better at producing secure code. Thanks Chris and Xander 🙂 We’re currently discussing with the security auditing firm whether we can publish the report. Should you want to receive a copy drop me an email.
We have now planned the next step towards the 1.5 release and we decided we do need a beta-4 mainly to address a a number of the recommendations from the security audit. We expect this beta-4 to be released around the 25th of July. We also expect this to be the last beta in the 1.5 release cycle.
