Bamboo 6.8 upgrade notes
We’ve collected some important notes on upgrading to Bamboo 6.8. For details on all the new features and improvements we’ve introduced in this release, see the Bamboo 6.8 release notes.
Here’s some important information you should know about before upgrading.
Resolving artifacts content type
Bamboo allows you to display the content of your artifact based on its extension. This is done using the Resolve artifacts content type by extension option. If this option is selected, whenever you click on an artifact in a web brower, Bamboo will present you its content with MIME type set according to the artifact's file extension. Opening HTML files in this way, however, could lead to potential XSS attacks. For that reason, starting from version 6.8, the Resolve artifacts content type by extensions option is disabled by default. If you wish to enable this option, go to Administration (> Overview > Security settings.
