We'd like to draw your attention to new patches that were recently posted to the Partner Portal and Support Center. These patches deliver important improvements, such as improving security of the Magento Connect Manager and making it easier to install community-created translation packages.
General Magento Connect Patches
- PATCH_SUPEE-3941_EE_18.104.22.168_v1-2014-08-12-12-13-15.sh for EE 1.10.x

- PATCH_SUPEE-3941_EE_126.96.36.199_v1-2014-08-12-12-10-06.sh for EE 1.12.x
Result of applying this patch:
- When you install a community-created translation package, the translation provided by the package overwrites any existing translations for the same items. This enables you to more easily install packages with translations.
- To improve security, Magento Connect now uses HTTPS by default to download extensions, rather than FTP.
- Extension developers can now create an extensions with a dash character in the name. Merchants can install those extensions without issues.
- Magento administrators who attempt to install an extension with insufficient file system privileges are now informed. Typically, the Magento Admin Panel runs as the web server user. If this user has insufficient privileges to the your Magento install dir/app/code/community directory structure, the Magento administrator sees an error message in the Magento Connect Manager.
To set file system permissions appropriately, see After You Install Magento: Recommended File System Ownership and Privileges.
