Bug fix release for libvoikko is available for testing at


Fixes in this release affect only Python and Java interfaces. Embedded null 
characters within input strings are now correctly handled in Python and Java 
programs. Previously such characters could lead to erratic results or, in 
Java, infinite loops.

I have not been able to confirm whether anything worse than infinite loops 
could happen due to these bugs. Considering the possible denial of service 
condition in the Java code I would say that this release fixes a low severity 
security bug. I recommend that at least publicly accessible WWW services that 
use either the Java or Python modules would upgrade to this release once it 
has been tested and properly released. Upgrading the native library is not 
necessary since no changes have been made to it.
