What has changed

Java updates 1.6.0_105 and 1.7.0_85 introduced strict validation of HTTP header field values. Colon (:) is no longer an allowed character, as specified in HTTP 1.1. This change broke the publishing action in Magnolia since we pass a message header that contains mgnl:deleted.

Symptom: You see the following error when you publish content in Magnolia running on 1.6.0_105 and 1.7.0_85 or later.

ERROR dule.exchangetransactional.TransactionalSyndicator: Failed to activate content. java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: 
Illegal character(s) in message header field: mgnl:deleted

The issue was fixed by renaming the value to mgnl-deleted MAGNOLIA-6462 - Getting issue details... STATUS MGNLXAA-95 - Getting issue details... STATUS .

Upgrade to Magnolia 4.5.27 to fix the issue or downgrade your Java virtual machine as a temporary workaround.

This release is a recommended update for all users of Magnolia 4.5.
