There is a new update for CommandBox CLI available.  Version 5.4.2 is a patch update that contains a few bug fixes including two important ones. 

  • There is a fix for a regression introduced in 5.4.0 where updating the version of a CF engine doesn't work without forgetting the server first. 
  • There is also an important security improvement to CommandBox servers.  Thanks to Abram Adams for reporting this to Ortus so we could address it.  

Ortus recommends all users update their installations to this new version.

You can update CommandBox via the download links on our product page, via HomeBrew on your Mac, or our apt/yum repos.  The Ortus CommandBox Docker images have also been updated to include the latest CommandBox.

Note, the details of the security improvement have been tracked privately.
