A brief update on where we are with version 2.0.
The 1st security audit has been executed and the results were good. No structural security issues were found. All but one of the issues that were identified have been addressed. The remaining issue is not difficult but requires some further investigtion to get it right. For details read the blog article about the 1st security audit
The 2nd security audit is underway and a report is expected some weeks from now.
In addition to the work on the security audit results we’ve been testing and trying which again lead to discovering and fixing a number of smaller bugs. Documentation is not progresing as fast as we’d like and it’s that lack of documentation which is keeping us from releasing an alpha tarball.
We’re working on planning the client-side workflow testing but it’s too early to be able to say anything useful about when this is expected to start.
Meanwhile both RENATER and UNINETT are planning to offer a “FileSender 2.0 beta service” to their users based on the current 2.0 code base, in the next couple of months. That would be the start of larger scale field testing of version 2.0.
