Hi all,

I have just released 2.0.47. It fixes an issue that could allow a specially crafted .apkg file to write files outside the media folder during import. AnkiWeb shared decks were not affected, but upgrading is strongly recommended if you import .apkg files from third party sources. A big thanks to David Bailey for discovering this issue.
