GDM2 2.14.8 (stable) has been released

The 2.14.8 release is a stable release of GDM with the following new features. Note this contains an important security fix, so users and distros should update immediately.

- Correction for serious security issue where the user can enter the GDM configuration GUI with a user password when the Face Browser is enabled. Refer to bugzilla.gnome.org bug #343476 (Brian Cameron) This issue impacts all versions of GDM 2.8.0.0-2.8.0.7, 2.14.0-2.14.7, and 2.15.0-2.15.3. This issue was reported to vendor-sec one week ago and has ID #CVE-2006-2452.

- Fixed bug where when the "Include All" button is modified in the Users tab, the Automatic/Timed login dropdown lists update properly. (Brian Cameron)

- Now gdmflexiserver calls gdmcomm_check with FALSE so it will not pop up a dialog. gdmflexiserver can be run with the --command option which can be used when the user does not have permission to a DISPLAY, so trying to show a dialog was causing gdmflexiserver to core dump when the check failed. (Brian Cameron)

- Added gestures to the AccessKeyMouseEvents configuration file so that users can access more accessibility features using dwell gestures. (Brian Cameron)

- Translation updates (Laurent Dhima, Pema Geyleg, Theppitak Karoonboonyanan, Gabor Kelemen, Ahmad Riza H Nst, Vincent van Adrighem)
