Release Date

  • 2018-11-02

New Features

  • Diffs: expose range diff inside the PR view. It's now possible to show commit-per-commit view of changes in pull request.
  • Diffs: new sticky context bar. When browsing diffs we show file path of the current diff so users are aware all the time what file they are reviewing.
  • Diffs: added quick file selector in diffs views. Now it's possible to select a file in large diffs from the sticky header for quicker access to certain interesting files in diffs.
  • Diffs: introducing diff menu for whitespace toggle and context changes. It's now possible to show/hide whitespace changes and toggle the file context in all diff places including pull requests.
  • Comments: allow commenting on empty files without content.
  • Repositories: added option to archive repositories instead of deleting them. Archived repositories are useful for future auditing, but they are read-only.
  • rcextensions: new rcextensions. We're introducing new rcextensions that will be base for future low-level integrations. It's now possible to expose nice messages back to the users when using rcextensions.
  • Summary page: slightly re-organize summary page for better user experience.

General

  • Mailing: switched from custom library to pyramid_mailer with python3 compatibility.
  • Frontend: Switched to Polymer 3.0.
  • Frontend: fixed problems with IE11 and brought back support for that browser.
  • Git: use a fetch_sync based creation of remote repositories. This fixes problems with importing from Bitbucket.
  • Comments: update comments email templates.
  • Packaging: only wrap external dependency scripts. This makes execution of scripts roughly 5x faster due to much smaller PATH tree.
  • HTTP: use application wide detection of invalid bytes sent via URL/GET/POST data.
  • Fonts/UI: use consistent fonts across the whole application. Few places had non-standard custom fonts.
  • Google: updated google auth plugin with latest API changes.
  • Core: handle edge case requesting matched routes but with hg/svn/git or api context.
  • Dependencies: bumped rhodecode-tools to 1.0.0 release using Apache2 license.
  • Dependencies: atomicwrites==1.2.1
  • Dependencies: attrs==18.2.0
  • Dependencies: dogpile.cache==0.6.7

Security

  • RST: improve Javascript RST sandbox.
  • Jupyter: sanitize markdown cells similar as we do for our own markdown cleanup.

Performance

  • SSH: improved SSH wrapper execution speed by using optimized binary script wrapping.
  • Core: reduced font and JavaScript load times.

Fixes

  • Comments: ensure we always display unmatched comments.
  • Branch Permissions: fixed changing rule order for branch permissions.
  • Users: ensure get_first_superadmin actually gets the 1st created super-admin.
  • Users: when deleting users ensure we also clear personal flag. This fixes some problems with multiple personal groups.
  • Diffs: disable the error border on highlight errors.
  • Integrations: implement retry to HTTP[S] calls for integrations. Web parts will do a 3x retry call in case service is not reachable or responds with 5XX codes.
  • Git: fixed pull-request updates in case branch names are the same as the file names.
  • Supervisor: add patch for older kernel support.
  • Compare: fixed file after/before links in compare view for cross repo compare.
  • Emails: improve fonts and rendering of email HTML.
  • Permissions: flush members of user groups permissions to clear caches.
  • Repository: add check preventing of removal of repo with attached pull requests. Users should use the new archive repo function instead.

Upgrade notes

  • In this release, we're shipping a new rcextensions. The changes made are backward incompatible. An update of rcextensions is required prior to using them again. Please check the new rcextensions.tmpl directory located in etc/rcextensions.tmpl in your instance installation path. Old code should be 100% portable by just copy&paste to the right function.
  • Mailing: We introduced a new mailing library. The older options should be compatible and generally, old configuration doesn't need any changes in order to send emails. We, however, encourage users to re-check mailing setup in case of some more sophisticated email setups. There's a possibility to send a test email from admin > settings > email section.
