Dear users and administrators of the BSCW software,

the new versions of BSCW5 Classic 5.2.6 and 5.3.0 are available as of today.

BSCW 5.2.6 is a maintenance release. After penetration tests by the BSI (German Federal Office for Information Security) and by T-Systems, further security improvements have been made. In particular, the included jQuery Javascript library has been updated and a cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in the "mobile" package has been fixed.

BSCW 5.3.0 is a port of BSCW 5.2 to Python 3 and replaces the BSCW 5.2 series. Please note that BSCW 5.3 for Linux requires Python versions 3.8, 3.9, 3.10 or 3.11, so older systems may require a migration to a more recent operating system. BSCW 5.3 for Windows requires Python version 3.11.

BSCW instances of customers that are supported by OrbiTeam (maintenance or hosting contracts) are automatically updated, so no further action is required.

As usual, further information about the individual changes can be found in the changelog of the distribution. The new versions are available for download now:

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact our support team at

Yours sincerely,
Volker Paulsen
