This release is primarily a security release; it addresses
CVE-2014-7227, a vulnerability in RT's SMIME integration enabled by
CVE-2015-6271 and related vulnerabilities, known as "Shellshock."
Systems which have patched bash are not vulnerable to CVE-2014-7227.

It also addresses a minor error in the 4.2.7 upgrade step on Oracle; for
Oracle users who had already upgraded to 4.2.7, the 4.2.8 upgrade step
properly runs the same alteration.  There is no database change for
non-Oracle installs.
