The Joomla Production Department shares the outcome of the discussions that the last Joomla 5 article generated.
Joomla has had support for Web Authentication for some time now and this has worked well since its inclusion. That was until the server of the Fido alliance was no longer reachable due to an outage.
This resulted in Joomla sites trying to contact the Fido alliance server but receiving no response, since the response was taking some time users noticed that their sites were getting slow.
As more sites were trying to reach the Fido server it became even more difficult to contact the server, causing even more disruptions.
This was a very difficult bug to test for as it relied on a third-party server experiencing problems hence it did not come to light while testing 4.2.1
The Joomla 4.2.2 release comes with the Fido token so we no longer have to contact the Fido server every time we need an updated token. This will improve the load times for your site.
The Joomla! Project is delighted to announce a security release for 4.x series of Joomla which addresses a security vulnerability and contains various bug fixes and improvements
