[Please forward to interested recipients.]

A new release of GNU arch, tla-1.1pre8, is now officially available.
See for information about
obtaining this release.

GNU arch is a distributed, changeset-oriented revision control system:
an alternative to CVS and to proprietary tools such as those used to
maintain the Linux kernel.

     (                                                       )
     (  tla-1.1pre8 fixes a minor security vulnerability     )
     (  and therefore upgrading to 1.1pre8 is recommended.   )
     (                                                       )
     (  No exploits of the vulnerability have been observed. )
     (                                                       )

The nature of the bug was that a maliciously constructed changeset
could modify the contents of the parent directory of the tree to which
the changeset is applied.

Thank you for your support,

The arch project is financially supported entirely by contributions
from the general public.  Financial help, if you are able to provide,
is both very much needed and very much appreciated.  You can find more
information about this at:


The arch project is also, significantly, supported by contributions of
labor by a substantial number of volunteers (listed in the ChangeLog
and in the =THANKS file).  A community of contributors has helped arch
to advance far more rapidly than would otherwise have been possible.
