StackApplet 1.5.1 Released

Written for StackApplet by Nathan Osman on 2012-01-13

Although completely unplanned, StackApplet 1.5.1 has been released and is now available for download. This release fixes two rather critical bugs in the application. The first is a security hole that affects a computer with multiple users logged on. StackApplet 1.5 would only allow a single instance of the application to run and would allow other local users to modify settings for the application. The second bug was a race-condition that would retrieve API data in the incorrect order, causing later requests to fail.

Both of these issues have been fixed in 1.5.1 and other than some changes to the translations, there is almost nothing else new in this release.
