1.4.6 released 2005-07-07: Stable series security and bugfix release

MediaWiki 1.4.6 is a bug fix and security update release.

Incorrect escaping of a parameter in the page move template could be used to inject JavaScript code by getting a victim to visit a maliciously constructed URL. Users of vulnerable releases are recommended to upgrade to this release.

Vulnerable versions:

    * 1.5 preview series: n <= 1.5beta2 vulnerable, fixed in 1.5beta3
    * 1.4 stable series: 1.4beta6 <= n <= 1.4.5 vulnerable, fixed in 1.4.6
    * 1.3 legacy series: not vulnerable

This release also includes fixes for some rare bug annoying HTTP errors, a PHP 4.1.2 breakage bug, and works around some template limitations introduced in 1.4.5.
