The Horde Team is pleased to announce the final release of the Horde Groupware
Webmail Edition version 1.0.4.

This is a bugfix release that also improves XSS (cross site scripting)
filters, used for example in HTML message viewers, and fixes privilege
escalations in the Horde API and missing ownership validation in the share
management. All users are encouraged to upgrade to this version.

Many thanks to Secunia for reporting an XSS vulnerability (CVE-2007-6018) and
working with us to test the fixes.

Horde Groupware Webmail Edition is a free, enterprise ready, browser based
communication suite. Users can read, send and organize email messages and
manage and share calendars, contacts, tasks and notes with the standards
compliant components from the Horde Project.

    * Fixed privilege escalation in the Horde API.
    * Fixed missing ownership validation on share changes.
    * Improved XSS filtering.
    * Fixed locked portal blocks.
    * Further improved webroot detection.
    * Improved sieve forward rules.
