Ajax File Manager
We believe that we have closed all the security holes in the ajaxFilemanager third party application. However, given the trauma these holes have caused our users, we realize that some of you will not consider the features the application provides to be worth any risk. Thus we have made the ajaxFilemanager a plugin that must be enabled if you wish its functionality.
Changes regarding unpublished item behaviour
We have made a change in behavior having to do with Zenphoto users seeing unpublished items. Prior to this release, any logged in Zenphoto user was shown all unpublished items. This stems mainly from when the only users were the site managers.
We have found that our users need two kinds of users: Ones that manage all or part of the site and ones that are "customers" of the site. For the latter, it was not desirable that they be shown unpublished items in menus.
The 1.4.2 release will show unpublished items only to users with rights to manage the item type. Thus, admin users and users with manage all (albums, pages, news) rights will see those unpublished tems. All other users will not see unpublished items unless they have been assigned edit rights in the manage object list.
Of course if the user knows the direct link to the unpublished item he will still be able to link and view it.
