newsbeuter 1.2 released: fixes incomplete security fix, please upgrade

September 2, 2008

OK, this is kind of embarrassing… please upgrade to newsbeuter 1.2, as the security fix in 1.1 was incomplete. In addition, you even get new features, such as two new configuration options “download-retries” and “download-timeout” to make newsbeuter more reliable over unreliable connections such as TOR proxies, and improved HTML rendering for <pre> environments. And I hope this was the last release until a month or so…
