Djigzo 1.4.0 has been released


A new version of Djigzo has been released.

Release notes:

* Different certificate request handlers can now be added using a
  pluggable infrastructure.
* Certificate request handler for Comodo has been added. With the Comodo
  certificate request handler, certificates from Comodo's managed PKI
  services (EPKI) can be automatically requested from the gateway.
* Certificates can now be requested in bulk. A comma separated text file
  containing the request details can be imported. The certificates will
  be requested using the selected certificate request handler.
* Email encryption header trigger has been added. Encryption of email
  can be triggered using a pre-defined email header (matched against a
  regular expression).
* A certificate can now be automatically requested for a sender using
  the default selected certificate request handler (only if the sender
  does not yet have a valid certificate with private key).


* When a large number of certificates were imported (60000 certificates)
  the certificates view (UI) was no longer 'snappy' enough. The
  certificate view has been optimized (only noticeable with large number
  of certificates).
* Some UI menu items are moved to left-hand submenu.
* SMS settings menu item has been moved to the SMS page.
* The message template to edit should now be selected from a drop down
* The restart and PDF import attachment wait animation has been replaced
  with an animated gif.
* Upgraded to new version of CXF. The soap port is now by default only
  accessible from localhost.
* Added note to Virtual Appliance documentation about reserving memory
  to prevent swapping (thanks goes to Andreas Beier for his help in
  finding the cause of spurious crashes when running under ESX when the
  total memory used by all VMs was larger than the total host memory).
* The Virtual Appliance is upgraded to Ubuntu 10.04 LTS.

Bug fix

* The PDF reply URL didn't support unicode characters (only US-ASCII).
  The reply URL parameters are now UTF-8 encoded. (thanks goes to
  Benedikt Zorn for finding the problem).
* The PDF reply body didn't support unicode characters. The body is now
  UTF-8 if the body contains non-ascii characters. This has been
  reported by Benedikt Zorn.
* When creating certificates, the email address wasn't added to the
  alternative names (only to the subject).
* The check whether a domain is a valid domain was not strict enough.
  Domains containing an underscore ("_") are no longer accepted as a
  valid domain.
* Java wrapper version upgraded to latest version. Sometimes the Java
  wrapper was not able to automatically restart Djigzo when the wrapper
  detected that Djigzo wasn't running.
* The Virtual Appliance console update menu items were incorrectly
  named. The menu items were named "Update" and "Upgrade" but they
  should have been named "Upgrade" and "Dist-upgrade".
* Importing a PFX file containing a large number of certificates
  resulted in a timeout.
