History:
----------

Patches listed in this file are divided into sections for easier reference.

1.7.0
------
Patches #1 to #15 were added to Official Download package between
January 2009 to July 14, 2010, which was Version 1.7  (or 1.7.0).

1.7.1
------
Patches #16 to #19 plus #404 - which were previously overlooked
(not located in the Patches/Fixes Board for 1.7) were added October 22.10
and the Version number changed to sNews 1.7.1.

Versioning for Better Tracking
-------------------------------
This package, as released on October 22, 2010 is now officially referred to as
sNews version 1.7.1.

Each time the Official Download receives a number of revisions, it will be re-numbered as 
a new version. The next package release will be 1.7.2 and the next one after that as 1.7.3... and so on.

All versions within the sNews 1.7 series will only include patches and fixes to correct bugs or improve performance.
They will not include new (or improvements to) system functionality.

When there is a need to include new (or improvements to) system functionality,
we will then change to a new version as 1.8.0, and minor patches & fixes to that version will be
sub-numbered with each release as 1.8.1... 1.8.2... and so on.

To-Do List
--------------

1. Block URL access to server files
   ----------------------------------
	Anyone can access a core file on the host server by pointing to it in the browser.
	Example: http://www.yoursite.com/css/style.css
		 allows one to open or download the file on his/her computer.
	Example: http://www.yoursite.com/images/logo.gif
		 allows one to view and copy the image.

	Solution Needed:
	-----------------
	A way of blocking access to all core files and folders
	without affecting general site operation and performance.
