Miva Merchant Empresa/Mia/Script Compiler v5.09 Release Notes

Bugs Fixed
5659: POP3 handling of STAT response incorrectly allocates POP3Message array
5663: Mia: Logging into MM5 results in empty or error page (all POST forms broken)
5684: with no VALUE attribute reports "MvASSIGN requires the NAME attribute"
5690: MvPACK on dBase table without memo fields uses uninitialized variable and can cause a crash
5691: UNIX VM: exists() requires read access to the target, which is different than 5.06 and earlier
5696: Assigning a variable to itself results in an overlapped memcpy()
5709: Win32FileManager::Rename cannot replace files open in another process/thread
5710: MvPACK: Errors occurring while the original table is closed lead to crashes
5731: running mivavm-v5.08 .exe removes Synchro registration info
5758: Upgrade from Mia/Empresa 5.06 or earlier leaves the installation with broken commercelibs setting
5760: Empresa setup fails to remove script mapping on uninstall
5774: Miva Merchant Mia - Installation with Upgrade from Mia 5.06 doesn't install properly
5776: Miva Merchant Empresa 5.09 / Win03 - Miva Merchant Empresa tab is missing from IIS Default Web Site Properties when upgrading directly from 5.06 to 5.09
5781: Mia: Upgrade does not preserve errorsettings or maxdocache registry values
5782: Win32 Compiler Installer does not set MVC_LIB environment variable
5783: Win32 Compiler Installer does not remove msc_license.txt when upgrading from 5.06

Other Changes
- When renaming a file on Windows, if the rename fails because the process does not have permissions to read an existing destination file, the engine no longer enters an infinite loop.

New Builtin Functions
- crypto_sha256( buffer var, format, result var )
Calculates the SHA-256 hash of "buffer", storing the result in "result". Format may be one of "binary" or "hex".
- crypto_hmac_sha256( buffer var, key, format, result var )
Calculates the SHA-256 HMAC of "buffer" using binary key "key", storing the result in "result". Format may be one of "binary" or "hex".
- Note: The SHA-256 functions may not be available on platforms running older versions of OpenSSL. SHA-256 was introduced in OpenSSL v0.9.8. On platforms with a version of OpenSSL that does not support SHA-256, the functions will return 0.

Miva Merchant Empresa/Mia/Script Compiler v5.08 Release Notes

Bugs Fixed
5621: The level arguments to the -p option of mvc do not work as expected
5623: MIVAVM - Notification Server not working in store admin
5636: Non-SSL MvCALL callreturnheaderN values are missing their last character
5651: The -P option to mvc detects the errors and prints diagnostics but does not cause the compiler to exit with a failure code.
5652: 3.x Config: Relative paths to authfile are handled differently than 5.06
5655: Miva Merchant 5.5 PR5: core-16 patch installation fails on 5.07 engine
5656: miva_array_sort can cause an engine crash with numeric sort callback and non-numeric data (actually related to the number of items being sorted)
5657: MivaVM::cat does not NULL terminate the resulting string
5658: Inconsistent segfault in MvCREATE when DATABASE is the result of an expression
5663: Logging into MM5 results in empty or error page (all POST forms broken)

Configuration Changes
- The UNIX 3.x configuration library now supports a new directive,
"builtindir". When specified, the engine loads all builtin function
libraries found in the configured directory path. This functionality is
similar to the environment based configuration's MvCONFIG_DIR_BUILTIN

New Builtin Functions
- New GD library functions have been added allowing images to be created from
data stored in a variable instead of a file:

gdImageCreateFromPngMem( data var )
gdImageCreateFromGifMem( data var )
gdImageCreateFromWBMPMem( data var )
gdImageCreateFromJpegMem( data var )
gdImageCreateFromGdMem( data var )
gdImageCreateFromGd2Mem( data var )

- New GD library functions have been added allowing images to be written to
a variable instead of a file:

gdImagePngMem( im, output var )
gdImageGifMem( im, output var )
gdImageWBMPMem( im, fg, output var )
gdImageJpegMem( im, output var, quality )
gdImageGifAnimBeginMem( im, GlobalCM, Loops )
gdImageGifAnimAddMem( im, ctx, LocalCM, LeftOfs, TopOfs, Delay, Disposal, previm )
gdImageGifAnimEndMem( ctx, output var )

- New GD library functions have been added allowing images to be written
directly to the output stream:

gdImagePngOutput( im )
gdImageGifOutput( im )
gdImageWBMPOutput( im, fg )
gdImageJpegOutput( im, quality )
gdImageGifAnimBeginOutput( im, GlobalCM, Loops )
gdImageGifAnimAddOutput( im, LocalCM, LeftOfs, TopOfs, Delay, Disposal, previm )

- New system logging functions have been implemented for both Windows and UNIX hosts. On Windows, log messages are written
to the event log. On UNIX, log messages are sent to the syslog facility:

miva_openlog( ident, logopt, facility )
miva_setlogmask( maskpri )
miva_writelog( priority, message )

API Changes
- mvFile_Resolve has been deprecated as there is no secure way to resolve a path and then separately open it without introducing
a race condition that could allow an application to break out of the sandbox.
- New functions have been added to access the new system library registry:

mvSystemLibrary mvProgram_SystemLibrary( mvProgram program, const char *code );
void *mvSystemLibrary_GetFunction( mvSystemLibrary library, const char *function_name );
const char *mvSystemLibrary_Error( mvProgram program, mvSystemLibrary library, int *error_length );

- The configuration API version has been changed (to 2), and a new function, load_script_config_v2( mvConfig, void **, const char *, mvFile )
now replaces load_script_config. Version 1 configuration libraries that provide load_script_config() will no longer function.

Compiler Changes
- A new compiler option, -O , performs basic obfuscation of string constants by splitting them into chunks long. After splitting,
duplicate chunks are "compressed" (not repeated) when written to the output .mvc file.
- A new compiler option, -d, causes the compiler to output pseudo-C code suitable for use with Doxygen for generating automated documentation.
- The compiler no longer requires license validation.

Other Changes
- Support for the ODBC database connector has been dropped.
- MvREFERENCEARRAY now correctly applies its aggregate tags (MvDIMENSION, MvMEMBER) to the variable specified by the VARIABLE attribute,
rather than the destination variable specified by NAME.
- The MySQL connector library now automatically reestablishes connections that were lost while a long running SQL statement was in progress
on a secondary connection.
- The MySQL connector library now uses less memory when dealing with resultsets with multiple BLOB columns.
- On UNIX, the engine may now be configured to capture and replay requests, for debugging purposes. Two configuration settings control this option:

3.x Configuration:

Environment Based Configuration:

When configured, if the specified trigger file exists, the engine will dump its input state into a file created using the prefix specified by the
capture file option. The capture files may then be replayed from the commandline by appending the "-c " parameters. For example:

$ /var/www/cgi-bin/mivavm -c /tmp/capture001

- The MySQL connector library now properly calls my_init(), which should resolve most multithreading issues that occured on Windows platforms.
- Support for the Authorize.Net commerce library has been dropped.
- The tag now supports attribute IDENT, which may be used to add rcs-style ident tags to compiled MivaScript files
- Newly created MivaSQL databases now support table and index names up to 64 characters long.
- The file management code that maintains the script and data directory sandbox has been completely rewritten to eliminate race conditions
and restore proper functionality when handling symbolic links. The existing functionality was broken in v5.03.
- Files created by the engine now properly apply umask.
- MvLOCALIZED support in previous versions was completely broken. The new version restores the 3.x functionality. Scripts compiled with pre-5.07
compilers which make use of MvLOCALIZED will have to be recompiled using 5.07 in order to function properly.
- Network operations which have their own configurable timeouts (MvCALL, MvSMTP, etc...) now use the global timeout if no operation-specific
timeout is specified.
- Implemented proper timeout handling for MvSMTP and MvCALL.
- Network protocols that need to read a line of input at a time (SMTP, POP, HTTP, etc...) now do so much more efficiently.
- MakeSessionID() now generates statistically more random session identifiers.
- ROUND operations now truly use banker's rounding. In previous versions, a banker's rounding algorithm was applied, but would sometimes fail
to produce the expected result due to inaccuracies inherent in floating point numbers. The new system applies correction code for these
inaccuracies prior to performing the rounding.
- The template compiler has been completely rewritten to fix a large number of parser related bugs.
- A new system library registration mechanism has been added. Presently, this mechanism is only used to locate an installation of libgd for the
GD builtin functions:

The library registration dialog now supports a "System" library type.

3.x Configuration:

Environment Based Configuration:

- Builtin functions have been added implementing all libgd 2.x functionality.
- When running under IIS, the engine now properly detects and manages mismatches between an IIS virtual directory path and the configured Miva root
- A new DWORD registry setting "maxdocache" allows configuration of the maximum number of MvDO'd files to be cached on Win32. This setting is not
exposed through the user interface.
- Handling of INFINITY, NaN, and values larger than INT_MAX or smaller than INT_MIN is now uniform between Windows and UNIX platforms.
- MvCALL now supports additional METHOD values "OPTIONS", "PUT", "DELETE", "TRACE", and "CONNECT". Data handling for these action values is
identical to "RAW".
