Fedora Update Notification

Product : Fedora Core 3
Name : evolution
Version : 2.0.4
Release : 2
Summary : GNOME's next-generation groupware suite
Description :
Evolution is the GNOME mailer, calendar, contact manager and
communications tool. The tools which make up Evolution will
be tightly integrated with one another and act as a seamless
personal information-management tool.

Update Information:

There were several security flaws found in the mozilla package, which evolution depends on. Users of evolution are advised to upgrade to this updated package which has been rebuilt against a later version of mozilla which is not vulnerable to these flaws.

* Wed Mar 23 2005 David Malcolm lt;dmalcolm@redhat.comgt; - 2.0.4-2

- Removed explicit run-time spec-file requirement on mozilla.
The Mozilla NSS API/ABI stabilised by version 1.7.3
The libraries are always located in the libdir
However, the headers are in /usr/include/mozilla-1.7.6
and so they move each time the mozilla version changes.
So we no longer have an explicit mozilla run-time requirement in the
a requirement on the appropriate NSS and NSPR .so files is
automagically generated on build.
We have an explicit, exact build-time version, so that we can find
the headers (without
invoking an RPM query from the spec file; to do so is considered bad
- Introduced mozilla_build_version, to replace mozilla_version (now 1.7.6)
