[SEC][ANN] Rack 1.4.5, a modular Ruby webserver interface


Today we are proud to announce the release of Rack 1.4.5.

= Rack, a modular Ruby webserver interface

Rack provides a minimal, modular and adaptable interface for developing web applications in Ruby. By wrapping HTTP requests and responses in the simplest way possible, it unifies and distills the API for web servers, web frameworks, and software in between (the so-called middleware) into a single method call.
The exact details of this are described in the Rack specification, which all Rack applications should conform to.

== Changes

* February 7th, Thirty fifth public release 1.4.5
  * Fix CVE-2013-0263, timing attack against Rack::Session::Cookie
  * Fix CVE-2013-0262, symlink path traversal in Rack::File

== Where can I get it?
