Good work, Python! The Protect agent is ready for the big time!
- Assess rules take effect for child applications.
- Tags render correctly for IE11 users.
- Removed appearance of Apply License options for View-level users.
- Use the link to clear Advanced filters in the Libraries page.
- Critical vulnerabilities disappear from your Dashboard as soon as you mark them "Not a Problem".
Contrast now allows users to set the Application Code attribute of an application by passing the
contrast.application.code System property to the Java agent. The Java team also added System property
contrast.stderr for directing Contrast logs to STDERR instead of a log file, improved accuracy for XSS detection, and fixed a deadlock at start-up which affects WebLogic 12. When bot-blocking is enabled, the Java agent will always block the Mozilla bot even when the user hasn't included any bots to block in their Contrast application configuration
The .NET team added an Assess rule for HSTS header missing as well as support for
Contrast.AppName in DPAPI protected configs. We also fixed a concurrency issue that could cause an
InvalidOperationException along with issues where headers set in global.asax weren't analyzed by Assess sensors and incorrect sources were reported for some Assess vulnerabilities.
The Node team made a variety of performance and compatibility improvements including: better compatibility with the New Relic APM agent, fixing an issue with PostgreSQL options, and compatibility with applications that run
uglify-js in their deployment pipeline. The agent also handles the case where the package.json isn't included in a application. Finally, the team added some propagation enhancements for better Assess accuracy in
The Ruby team improved class name resolution from the code file paths.
Python Protect enters General Availability with this release! Remaining tasks for the Python team included tracking routes identified in the application for coverage statistics. We also added a new default location for configuration files under /etc/contrast.
