ActiveTcl and CVE-2015-1793

Question: 

Are ActiveTcl releases affected by CVE-2015-1793?

Answer: 

ActiveTcl 8.4.6.1 is affected. No other releases were shipped with the OpenSSL libraries that have the issue.

Sites where Teacup updates have installed tls versions 1.6.6, 1.6.6.1, or 1.6.7 are also affected.

Mitigation:
tls version 1.6.7.1 will be released with an updated OpenSSL library, and can be installed to patch 8.4.6.1 or replace add-on tls versions in other releases.

Alternately, there is also the option of using teacup to fall back to a tls version prior to 1.6.6 which is not affected.

ActivePython - Any plans to update to 2.7.9 or even 2.7.10?

Hi!

Just wondering... According to the download page, the latest version of ActivePython is 2.7.8, but the official Python release is at 2.7.10:

2.7.9 -> Released 2014-12-10
2.7.10 -> Released 2015-05-23

I understand that the "extra goodies" that ActiveState adds to the distribution add some time to the release, so asking for 2.7.10 would be too much, but 2.7.9 has been around for almost 6 months...

Is there any place where I can check on the ActivePython release schedule so I don't have to bother people here?

Thanks!

TCL exec state saving

Hi,

I need to save the state of a process, i.e. program, data and exec state, I know it is possible, but is it efficient and how do we do it? I think the hardest is the exec state so I would like to focus on that.

Thx.,
Mambo.

Is it efficient to save the exec state in TCL and how do we do it?

Hi all,

I want to save the whole process context, including the exec state. I know it is feasible but I don't know if with a script language it is efficient and how to do it.
My goal is to chose the best language to to this, and I'm in this community to find out on TCL about this subject.

Thanks to all,
Mambo.

teacup update behind a proxy

Hi,

this issue is not completely an installation issue but related somehow.

I am behind a proxy and the proxy rejects the update request of teacup. I guess if teacup would use a user agent in the HTTP header field similar to a browser then the proxy would let the request through.

Is it possible to set a user agent for teacup?
Or is there any other possibility for me to get updates?

Thanks in advance

Perl form handling script

I have a Perl script that reads input from an HTML form, edits it and sends e-mail with the fields from the form.

I used the form and entered my data. When I received the e-mail from the script it contained data from a person who used the form before I did AND my data in each field. For example:
Name: John WiltonVernell Turner

What do I do to ensure that the data in the variables in my script only contain the data of the current user and not the previous one?
It doesn't happen all the time.

my code to read the form data looks like this:
sub GetFormInput {

Start Komodo with Clean Profile

Question: 

How can I easily start Komodo with a clean profile?

Answer: 

Sometimes when you're using Komodo you may run into issues or want to see what your default settings were many customizations later.

In either case, you or the Komodo dev team will want you to start Komodo with a clean profile. One way is to manually move your profile aside using the instructions provided in another general FAQ post about Komodo File Locations.

Another easier and less error prone way is to use the KOMODO_USERDATADIR environmental variable:

  • Stop Komodo if it is running (this is optional, the following allows you to running multiple instances of Komodo)
  • Open a command line or Terminal window
  • Set KOMODO_USERDATADIR to a path of your choosing. eg.

     

    set KOMODO_USERDATADIR=%TEMP%\ko #Windows

    or

    export KOMODO_USERDATADIR="/tmp/ko" #unixy

  • Start Komodo from the same commandline window, eg  /path/to/komodo (or just komodo if it's on your PATH).

Komodo will then start with a completely clean profile with all default settings.
