Changes pushed to amara.org Saturday, Feb 8th.
- #1195 New editor: quotes, apostrophes etc. get escaped
- #751 Instruct users how to save downloaded backup for their subtitles
- #1125 Implement brightcove video player
A few notes on these changes. In issue #751 we are using Filesaver.js to automatically save a downloaded backup file (subtitle_backup.dfxp) for users to easily upload later in the event of a save failure. This currently does work on Safari, so those users will see the copy / paste dialog and be prompted to save.
Issue #1195 was the result of some fallout after we had implemented some urgent changes to fix a security flaw. For users whose subtitles were affected by this issue, you can either edit your subtitles and save a new version or let us know. We’re working on a script to fix affected data.
We’d also like to remind all users that we are committed to maintaining and improving security in amara. The footer of each amara page contains a link to our security page. If you discover a vulnerability, please report it to us via this link. We will fix it as quickly as possible and publicly recognize your contribution.
