SQL injection is a technique in which an attacker inserts malicious code into strings that are later passed to a database. In new version we've found vulnerabilities and added protection against them.

2. Added the ability to assign multiple authors to book

Now it's possible to connect book with two or more authors.

3. Added the ability to edit books from frontend

In new Book Library v. 3.5 it's even more comfortable to handle books via frontend. To existing options for books management (add/delete/publish/unpublish/rent/return from rent) were added ability to edit own books from frontend area. So users, moderators and administrators can easily manage books and requests without entering the administration panel.
