The Horde Team is pleased to announce the final release of the Horde Groupware
version 1.2.1.

This is a minor security release that adds another check to the (unused) XSS
filter for an Internet Explorer exploit and fixes unescaped output in the
address book test script. All users are encouraged to upgrade to this
version. In addition all users are encouraged to disable test.php in
production, per the install documentation.

Horde Groupware is a free, enterprise ready, browser based collaboration
suite. Users can manage and share calendars, contacts, tasks and notes  
with the
standards compliant components from the Horde Project.

The major changes compared to the Horde Groupware version 1.2 are:
     * Added another check to the XSS filter (only IE is vulnerable).
     * Escape output in address book's test.php
     * An import script for SquirrelMail preferences and contacts.
     * Consistent access keys.
     * Fix sharing with LDAP groups.
     * Several SyncML fixes.
     * Kolab fixes for free/busy URLs and photos.
