v2.3.8patch2 released with fixes and new features

The second patch to the v2.3.8 release is available. v2.3.8 patch #2 can be applied to any site already running v2.3.8 and v2.3.8patch1. It should be noted that the new 'Update permissions' upgrade scripts will help lock down the site by updating ALL file and folder permissions except for the 'cgi-bin' folder, including turning off the 'execute' bit. We recommend any site running v2.3.0 or later to update to v2.3.8 then install this patch. INSTALL AS AN EXTENSION PATCH,
