Details

After 8 days online, I discovered a couple of bugs in 0.6.0 release.

The first is a missing copyright legend in the readme.txt and license.txt files about Christian Hartnick (cis@hartnick.de).

The second is that the CMS distributed as 0.6.0 thinks it is really 0.6.0b12. That affects (as far as I have checked) the remote checking of new versions availability. Other critical functions of the internal version are configuration consistency (which is not affected in this case) and bug reporting.

As of today, only 210 downloads has been done, so I decided to replace the affected packages on the site with fixed versions.

Due to a bug in the checkupdates.php script files (which answer the user if there is or not a new version available) beta users of 0.6.0bxx were not being recommended to upgrade. Well, with this change (and the fixing of the checkupdates.php script) those users will be advised to upgrade, but also those 210 users will be advised to upgrade to their current version.

Empirical risk analysis suggest that this is the less-colateral damage approach (being the other to do a new release only with two minor changes, although copyright issues are not really minor).

Fortunately, most users don't use the "Check for updates" features, so most won't be disturbed.

After uploading the new versions, I left the old MD5 checksums with a warning legend, so prior users won't get alarmed by mismatching checksums.
This task depends upon
