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

This is a bugfix release that also fixes an XSS vulnerability in the
administration interface and improves the XSS filter to work around an XSS
vulnerability in Firefox browsers.

Thanks to Juan Galiana Lara and Daniel Fernández Bleda from Internet Security
Auditors for finding the XSS vulnerability in the administration interface.
