When using Doctrine in a project it is always a security critical component because it talks directly to your database. As such security is very important to us. In security however, context is important and providing you with query capabilities we have to expose you to the risk of SQL injections.
Doctrine cannot prevent you from building SQL injections into your applications and so can no other DBAL, because it would require hiding SQL completely. But hiding SQL completly is not wanted, because it is such a powerful language.
Therefore it is still your responsibility to make sure that you are using Doctrine correctly when working with SQL.
Read the rest of the article on the Doctrine website. Additional information on security concerns when utilizing Doctrine is now available in the respective repository's
SECURITY.md and also here: DBAL Security and ORM Security.

Please update to this official package and discontinue using code from non-official sources.

A full Changelog is available
The main development was occurring in what was originally intended to be a minor release in the 1.3.x series but this has been taking too long. This has required a change in plans.
The intention is to release Core 1.3.7 soon with all of the minor patches that have been floating out in the community as well as a couple other minor corrections. QA testing should begin on this release soon.
Core 1.4.0 will include many other improvements and fixes over 1.3.x series and also include a Forward Compatibility layer pointing toward the Core 2.0.0 release. There should be very few (if any) Backward Compatibility breaks from the 1.3.x series.
Core 2.0.0 will drop all backward compatibility for the 1.x series and require new extension structures, reliance on only new core technologies (symfony, twig, etc).
Timelines for anything beyond Core 1.3.7 are of course unknown and should not be assumed based on this information.
I am happy and proud to show my very first module! Of course it is a simple one. But see yourself: VerySimpleDownload
This is made with ModuleStudio. I have to say it is really easy. A lot of community members know me as a user. And I am still only a user. But I can now create my own module :-).
How did I proceed with my module? First I made the model with the current version of ModuleStudio. It do have an outdated generator but the webgen is available to provide me actual code. So I generated my module there. This is my guarantee to have the latest code running for 1.3.6.
Formicula 3.1.0 has been released. This is a release to be used with Zikula 1.3.x (preferably 1.3.6). Several bugs have been solved as well as new features being added.
Zikula Core 1.3.6 is released as of November 6, 2013. This is strictly a security release for the Core 1.3.x series. All users of Core 1.3.0 - 1.3.5 are recommended to update as soon as possible. This release does not contain any other bug fixes or features over Core 1.3.5.
Installation/Upgrade: (from Core 1.3.5) simply overwrite the files in your current installation with the new files run the upgrade.php routine.
The release that was to be version 1.3.6 has been renamed to 1.3.7 and is yet unreleased. Please adjust your development module dependencies accordingly.
We are happy to offer you a new service which is going to even further simplify module development with ModuleStudio: "WebGen" is a web-based generator for ModuleStudio models. It results from the master thesis of our employee Michael Eckes.
After the module with the version 2.4 was not qualified for Zikula 1.3.5 and was only developed sporadically, Reviews now is there with the version 2.4.1.
The reason for that is a request of an user on Github and the circumstance that Reviews is not so complex.
Eternizer version 1.1.3 comes with some bugfixes and new features:
For my own website I needed a newsletter plugin. I found the module of @dmm1 ([url]https://www.github.com/dmm1/Newsletter[/url]), but it wasn't ready for Zikula 1.3.X and many functions were buggy. That's why I started working on this module for 5 months now. Some time after I began to work on it, @nmpetkov ([url]https://www.github.com/dmm1/nmpetkov[/url]) began to work on it too. In just about five months, 150 issues were opened and fixed by about 150 pull-requests. Many new features were added, more than 40.000 lines were changed: [url]https://github.com/dmm1/Newsletter/graphs/contributors[/url].
