  • v1.7.0   Synapse 1.7.0 (2019-12-13) ========================== This release changes the default settings so that only local authenticated users can query the server's room directory. See the [upgrade notes](UPGRADE.rst#upgrading-to-v170) for details. Support for SQLite versions before 3.11 is now deprecated. A future release will refuse to start if used with an SQLite version before 3.11. Administrators are reminded that SQLite should not be used for production instances. Instructions for migrating to Postgres are available [here](docs/postgres.md). A future release of synapse will, by default, disable federation for servers using SQLite. No significant changes since 1.7.0rc2. Synapse 1.7.0rc2 (2019-12-11) ============================= Bugfixes -------- - Fix incorrect error message for invalid requests when setting user's avatar URL.
