10 New Features
11 ^^^^^^^^^^^^
12
13
14 - Full-text search: added support for ElasticSearch 6.X (ES6)
15 - Full-text search: Expose a quick way to search within repository groups using ES6.
16 - Full-text search: Add quick links to broaden/narrow search scope to repositories or
17 repository groups from global search.
18 - Full-text search: ES6 backend adds new highlighter, and search markers for better UX when searching.
19 - Full-text search: ES6 backend has enabled advanced `query string syntax`
20 adding more search and filtering capabilities.
21 - Full-text search: ES6 engine will now show added information where available such as line numbers file size.
22 - Files: added option to use highlight marker to show keywords inside file source. This
23 is used now for ES6 backend extended highlighting capabilities
24 - Artifacts (beta): EE edition exposes new feature called storage_api this allows storing
25 binary files outside of Version Control System, but in the scope of a repository or group.
26 This will soon become an Artifacts functionality available in EE edition.
27 - Authentication: introduced `User restriction` and `Scope restriction` for RhodeCode authentication plugins.
28 Admins can limit usage of RhodeCode plugins to super-admins user types, and usage in Web, or VCS protocol only.
29 This is mostly to help to migrate users to SAML, keeping the super-admins to manage instances via local-logins,
30 and secondly to force usage of AuthenticationTokens instead of re-using same credentials for
31 WEB and VCS authentication.
32 - API: added basic upload API for the storage_api. It's possible to store files using internal
33 API. This is a start for attachments upload in RhodeCode.
34 - API: added store_exception_api for remote exception storage. This is used by a new
35 indexer that will report any problems back into the RhodeCode instance in case of indexing problems.
36 - API: added function to fetch comments for a repository.
37 - Quick search: improve the styling of search input and results.
38 - Pull requests: allowed to select all forks and parent forks of target repository in creation UI.
39 This is a common workflow supported by GitHub etc.

86 Security
87 ^^^^^^^^

96 Performance
97 ^^^^^^^^^^^
98
99 - Summary page: don't load repo size when showing expanded information about repository.
100 Size calculation needs to be triggered manually.
101 - Git: use rev-list for fetching last commit data in case of single commit history.
102 In some cases, it is much faster than previously used git log command.
103
104
105 Fixes
106 ^^^^^
107
108 - Installer: fixed 32bit package builds broken in previous releases.
109 - Git: use iterative fetch to prevent errors about too many arguments on
110 synchronizing very large repositories.
111 - Git: pass in the SSL dir that is exposed from wire for remote GIT commands.
112 - LDAP+Groups: improve logging, and fix the case when extracting group name from LDAP
113 returned nothing. We should warn about that, but not FAIL on login.
114 - Default reviewers: fixed submodule support in picking reviewers from annotation for files.
115 - Hooks: handle non-ascii characters in hooks new pull-requests open template.
116 - Diffs: fixed missing limited diff container display on over-size limit diffs.
117 - Diffs: fixed 500 error in case of some very uncommon diffs containing only Unicode characters.
118 - Repositories: handle VCS backend unavailable correctly in advanced settings for the repository.
119 - Remap & rescan: prevent empty/damaged repositories to break the remap operation.
120 - Visual: fixed show revision/commit length settings.
121 - Mercurial submodules: only show submodule in the path that it belongs too.
122 Before even submodules from root node were shown in subdirectories.
123 - UI/Files: fixed icons in file tree search.
124 - WebHook integration: quote URL variables to prevent URL errors with special chars
125 like # in the title.
126 - API: pull-requests, fixed invocation of merge as another user.
127 - VCS: limit fd leaks on subprocessio calls.
128 - VCS: expose SSL certificate path over the wire to the vcsserver, this solves some
129 remote SSL import problems reported.

132 Upgrade notes
133 ^^^^^^^^^^^^^
134
135 This release brings the new Full-text search capabilities using ElasticSearch 6.
136 If you use Elastic Search backend a backward compatibility mode is enabled and
137 ElasticSearch backend defaults to previously used ElasticSearch 2.
138
139 To use new features a full index rebuild is required, in addition ```--es-version=6``` flag
140 needs to be used with indexer and ```search.es_version = 6``` should be set in rhodecode.ini
141
142 Additionally new mapping format is available for the indexer that has additional capabilities
143 for include/exclude rules. Old format should work as well, but we encourage to
144 generate a new mapping.ini file using rhodecode-index command, and migrate your repositories
145 to the new format.
146
147 Please refer to the :ref:`indexing-ref` documentation for more details.
