The MapServer team is pleased to announce the release of MapServer 
version 5.4.2.

No new functionality has been added. This is a maintenance release that 
fixes a few issues found in 5.4.1, including a new fix for security 
vulnerability CVE-2009-0840 (ticket #2943) which was not completely 
resolved in the previous releases.

The full 5.4.2 change log can be found at: 

The source code is available at:


Binary distributions linked from the same download page will follow 
shortly. Windows users can now download MS4W 3.0 beta5 which contains 
this release.

We encourage all users of pre-5.4 releases to upgrade to 5.4 as soon as 
possible. However, for the convenience of those who cannot upgrade right 
away, we have backported the security fixes and produced release 
packages for 5.2.3 and 4.10.5 that are available in source form on the 
same download page listed above.
