Zenphoto 22.214.171.124 Nov 11, 2011
This is a security update to the issues reported and the only change to Zenphoto 126.96.36.199 is the removal of the 3rd party Ajax File Manager tool as already discussed. Info about that here:
We urge anyone to upgrade. Download as always on our download page. If you access the file manager sub tab on the backend tab you will get a 404 not found. That is meant to happen.

Security alert - Part 2 (update 2) Nov 10, 2011

ALERT - Security hole in Zenphoto 188.8.131.52 Nov 09, 2011
