  • v1.23.0   Synapse 1.23.0 (2020-11-18) =========================== This release changes the way structured logging is configured. See the [upgrade notes](UPGRADE.rst#upgrading-to-v1230) for details. **Note**: We are aware of a trivially exploitable denial of service vulnerability in versions of Synapse prior to 1.20.0. Complete details will be disclosed on Monday, November 23rd. If you have not upgraded recently, please do so. Bugfixes -------- - Fix a dependency versioning bug in the Dockerfile that prevented Synapse from starting. ([\#8767](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/8767)) Synapse 1.23.0rc1 (2020-11-13) ============================== Features -------- - Add a push rule that highlights when a jitsi conference is created in a room. ([\#8286](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/8286)) - Add an admin api to delete a single file or files that were not used for a defined time from server. Contributed by @dklimpel. ([\#8519](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/8519)) - Split admin API for reported events (`GET /_synapse/admin/v1/event_reports`) into detail and list endpoints. This is a breaking change to #8217 which was introduced in Synapse v1.21.0. Those who already use this API should check their scripts. Contributed by @dklimpel. ([\#8539](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/8539)) - Support generating structured logs via the standard logging configuration. ([\#8607](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/8607), [\#8685](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/8685)) - Add an admin API to allow server admins to list users' pushers.

([\#8455](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/8455)) - Fix a bug where Synapse would blindly forward bad responses from federation to clients when retrieving profile information. ([\#8580](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/8580)) - Fix a bug where the account validity endpoint would silently fail if the user ID did not have an expiration time. It now returns a 400 error. ([\#8620](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/8620)) - Fix email notifications for invites without local state. ([\#8627](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/8627)) - Fix handling of invalid group IDs to return a 400 rather than log an exception and return a 500. ([\#8628](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/8628)) - Fix handling of User-Agent headers that are invalid UTF-8, which caused user agents of users to not get correctly recorded. ([\#8632](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/8632)) - Fix a bug in the `joined_rooms` admin API if the user has never joined any rooms.

  • v1.21.2   Synapse 1.21.2 (2020-10-15) =========================== Debian packages and Docker images have been rebuilt using the latest versions of dependency libraries, including authlib 0.15.1. Please see bugfixes below. Security advisory ----------------- * HTML pages served via Synapse were vulnerable to cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks. All server administrators are encouraged to upgrade. ([\#8444](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/pull/8444)) ([CVE-2020-26891](https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2020-26891)) This fix was originally included in v1.21.0 but was missing a security advisory. This was reported by [Denis Kasak](https://github.com/dkasak). Bugfixes -------- - Fix rare bug where sending an event would fail due to a racey assertion. ([\#8530](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/8530)) - An updated version of the authlib dependency is included in the Docker and Debian images to fix an issue using OpenID Connect.

  • v1.20.1   v1.20.1 Synapse 1.20.1 (2020-09-24) =========================== Bugfixes -------- - Fix a bug introduced in v1.20.0 which caused the `synapse_port_db` script to fail. ([\#8386](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/8386)) - Fix a bug introduced in v1.20.0 which caused variables to be incorrectly escaped in Jinja2 templates. ([\#8394](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/8394))
  • v1.20.0   v1.20.0 Synapse 1.20.0 (2020-09-22) =========================== No significant changes since v1.20.0rc5. Removal warning --------------- Historically, the [Synapse Admin API](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/tree/master/docs) has been accessible under the `/_matrix/client/api/v1/admin`, `/_matrix/client/unstable/admin`, `/_matrix/client/r0/admin` and `/_synapse/admin` prefixes. In a future release, we will be dropping support for accessing Synapse's Admin API using the `/_matrix/client/*` prefixes. This makes it easier for homeserver admins to lock down external access to the Admin API endpoints. Synapse 1.20.0rc5 (2020-09-18) ============================== In addition to the below, Synapse 1.20.0rc5 also includes the bug fix that was included in 1.19.3. Features -------- - Add flags to the `/versions` endpoint for whether new rooms default to using E2EE. ([\#8343](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/8343)) Bugfixes -------- - Fix rate limiting of federation `/send` requests. ([\#8342](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/8342)) - Fix a longstanding bug where back pagination over federation could get stuck if it failed to handle a received event. ([\#8349](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/8349)) Internal Changes ---------------- - Blacklist [MSC2753](https://github.com/matrix-org/matrix-doc/pull/2753) SyTests until it is implemented. ([\#8285](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/8285)) Synapse 1.20.0rc4 (2020-09-16) ============================== Synapse 1.20.0rc4 is identical to 1.20.0rc3, with the addition of the security fix that was included in 1.19.2. Synapse 1.20.0rc3 (2020-09-11) ============================== Bugfixes -------- - Fix a bug introduced in v1.20.0rc1 where the wrong exception was raised when invalid JSON data is encountered. ([\#8291](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/8291)) Synapse 1.20.0rc2 (2020-09-09) ============================== Bugfixes -------- - Fix a bug introduced in v1.20.0rc1 causing some features related to notifications to misbehave following the implementation of unread counts. ([\#8280](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/8280)) Synapse 1.20.0rc1 (2020-09-08) ============================== Removal warning --------------- Some older clients used a [disallowed character](https://matrix.org/docs/spec/client_server/r0.6.1#post-matrix-client-r0-register-email-requesttoken) (`:`) in the `client_secret` parameter of various endpoints. The incorrect behaviour was allowed for backwards compatibility, but is now being removed from Synapse as most users have updated their client. Further context can be found at [\#6766](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/6766). Features -------- - Add an endpoint to query your shared rooms with another user as an implementation of [MSC2666](https://github.com/matrix-org/matrix-doc/pull/2666). ([\#7785](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/7785)) - Iteratively encode JSON to avoid blocking the reactor.

([\#8104](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/8104)) - Fix a long-standing bug where invalid JSON would be accepted by Synapse.

This bug was introduced in v1.19.0. ([\#8139](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/8139)) - Fix logging in via OpenID Connect with a provider that uses integer user IDs. ([\#8190](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/8190)) - Fix a longstanding bug where user directory updates could break when unexpected profile data was included in events.
