Announcement: TWiki Community Release 4.3.2 General Availability

The TWiki Community Release 4.3.2 aka Georgetown Release is now available for download from the TWiki.org website. This is a patch release that adds a crypt token based security fix to protect against a CSRF vulnerability. This release incorporates also several usability enhancements and other bug fixes.

It is recommended to upgrade older TWiki releases to this TWiki-4.3.2 release. We expect this release to be very stable.
