Security Fix

  • Fixed authorization error in db_manager that allowed un-privileged access

New Features

  • Added Myna.Permissions.User.hasAnyRight: This tests if the user has any in a list of rights. Good for deciding whether to allow a user to log in
  • Added String.listQualify: adds a symbol to the beginning and end of each list item. Good for escaping text lists for use in SQL
  • Added $res.redirectWithToken: redirects user to a URL, including an auth_token of the current user. Used to enable auto-login to other Myna applications
  • Added Object.copy: shallow and deep object copying
  • Added Permissions.getAppValues: returns display name and description for an app, or null if app does not exist
