Hello fellow Dancers.

We've been notified about a security issue that affects Dancer 1.3070.

Indeed, since 1.3070, it was possible to abuse the static file serving 
feature to obtain files from a directory immediately above the directory 
configured to serve static files from.

This issue has been reported by Vladimir Lettiev and fixed by David 
Precious. Note that we've added more tests in the suite to make sure 
this issue cannot come back in future releases.

I've published a security release yesterday: 1.3071 which provides the 
very patch needed to solve the issue. Also be aware that the diff 
between 1.3070 and 1.3071 is minimal, it only provides the security fix:

We strongly advice you to upgrade to 1.3071 if you're running under 
1.3070 in production.


Thanks for your trust, and happy dancing.
