    I was looking for updates in Plesk and I saw there are some from April 4 '07. I was looking in the release notes but I coudn't find a thing about this update. :confused:

    Does somebody know what is changed? I always want to know what is change before I update. Plesk and updates are not a good combination... ;)

    What OS are you running? According to http://www.swsoft.com/en/download/plesk8 only the FreeBSD (latest: 9 april) and Mac OS X (latest: 5 april) versions of Plesk have had releases this month so far.

    Has anyone figured out what the April 23 release does?
    It doesn't feel comfortable to push an update button without knowing what it does.

    The April 23 update for PSA 8.1.1 is just a single package: psa-hotfix3. I don't know what exactly is hotfixed though.

    still, no changelog for them either...

    Perhaps they do it for a security matter, maybe they wait abit longer before people have time 2 update the plesk machines...
    But that is my point of view, dunno if it's true :)

    psa-hotfix3-8.1.1-cos4.build81070423.15.i586

    No anouncements indeed OK may be for security concerns,
    i was very suspicious about this update

    but i dont think the mystery is about security concerns...

    [root@ns1 swsoft]# rpm -ql psa-hotfix2
    (contains no files)

    actually i believe that psa-hotfix2 was empty and they realized that they have built an empty rpm package and issued psa-hotfix3


    any comments will be great

    SWsoft also release rpms that don't install files but just run scripts. Check rpm -q --scripts psa-hotfix3 to see the scripts that were run when the package was installed.
