       is now available.
    
    Description:
    
       This update for fossil fixes the following issues:
    
       - fossil 2.12.1:
         * CVE-2020-24614: Remote authenticated users with check-in or
           administrative privileges could have executed arbitrary code
           [boo#1175760]
         * Security fix in the "fossil git export" command. New "safety-net"
           features were added to prevent similar problems in the future.
         * Enhancements to the graph display for cases when there are many
           cherry-pick merges into a single check-in. Example
         * Enhance the fossil open command with the new --workdir option and the
           ability to accept a URL as the repository name, causing the remote
           repository to be cloned automatically. Do not allow "fossil open" to
           open in a non-empty working directory unless the --keep option or the
           new --force option is used.
         * Enhance the markdown formatter to more closely follow the CommonMark
           specification with regard to text highlighting. Underscores in the
           middle of identifiers (ex: fossil_printf()) no longer need to be
           escaped.
         * The markdown-to-html translator can prevent unsafe HTML (for example:
