Security release

This release contains some security fixes.

A moderate impact security fix is included in this release, which revealed the database password during the installation process, if it was provided as environment variable. This is e.g. the case for our docker image.

Low impact security improvements include correct escaping of some user provided data used for rendering HTML tooltips in two places. The missing escaping made it possible to inject certain uncritical HTML tags into the tooltip.

These issues were responsibly disclosed to our Security team. Our security bug bounty program welcomes & rewards researchers who discover and responsibly report to us any security issues found in Matomo or any of the plugins created by Matomo/InnoCraft.

Database upgrade

This release does not contain any major database upgrade.
