MediaWiki 1.4.6 released [SECURITY]

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

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. See the changelog in the release notes for a
detailed list of bugs fixed.
