  • v1.68.0
    Synapse 1.68.0 (2022-09-27)
    ===========================
    
    Please note that Synapse will now refuse to start if configured to use a version of SQLite older than 3.27.

    Synapse 1.67.0 (2022-09-13)
    ===========================
    
    This release removes using the deprecated direct TCP replication configuration
    for workers. Server admins should use Redis instead. See the [upgrade
    notes](https://matrix-org.github.io/synapse/v1.67/upgrade.html#upgrading-to-v1670).
    
    The minimum version of `poetry` supported for managing source checkouts is now
    1.2.0.
    
    **Notice:** from the next major release (1.68.0) installing Synapse from a source
    checkout will require a recent Rust compiler. Those using packages or
    `pip install matrix-synapse` will not be affected. See the [upgrade
    notes](https://matrix-org.github.io/synapse/v1.67/upgrade.html#upgrading-to-v1670).
    
    **Notice:** from the next major release (1.68.0), running Synapse with a SQLite
    database will require SQLite version 3.27.0 or higher. (The [current minimum
     version is SQLite 3.22.0](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/blob/release-v1.67/synapse/storage/engines/sqlite.py#L69-L78).)
    See [#12983](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/12983) and the [upgrade notes](https://matrix-org.github.io/synapse/v1.67/upgrade.html#upgrading-to-v1670) for more details.
    
    No significant changes since 1.67.0rc1.

    ==============================
    
    Features
    --------
    
    - Support setting the registration shared secret in a file, via a new `registration_shared_secret_path` configuration option. ([\#13614](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/13614))
    - Change the default startup behaviour so that any missing "additional" configuration files (signing key, etc) are generated automatically. ([\#13615](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/13615))

    Bugfixes
    --------
    
    - Fix a bug introduced in Synapse 1.13 where the [List Rooms admin API](https://matrix-org.github.io/synapse/develop/admin_api/rooms.html#list-room-api) would return integers instead of booleans for the `federatable` and `public` fields when using a Sqlite database. ([\#13509](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/13509))
    - Fix bug that user cannot `/forget` rooms after the last member has left the room. ([\#13546](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/13546))
    - Faster Room Joins: fix `/make_knock` blocking indefinitely when the room in question is a partial-stated room. ([\#13583](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/13583))
    - Fix loading the current stream position behind the actual position. ([\#13585](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/13585))
    - Fix a longstanding bug in `register_new_matrix_user` which meant it was always necessary to explicitly give a server URL. ([\#13616](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/13616))
    - Fix the running of [MSC1763](https://github.com/matrix-org/matrix-spec-proposals/pull/1763) retention purge_jobs in deployments with background jobs running on a worker by forcing them back onto the main worker.

  • v1.67.0rc1
    ec2fe7bb · Fixup changelog ·
    Synapse 1.67.0rc1 (2022-09-06)
    ==============================
    
    This release removes using the deprecated direct TCP replication configuration
    for workers. Server admins should use Redis instead. See the [upgrade
    notes](https://matrix-org.github.io/synapse/v1.67/upgrade.html#upgrading-to-v1670).
    
    The minimum version of `poetry` supported for managing source checkouts is now
    1.2.0.
    
    Notice: from the next major release (v1.68.0) installing Synapse from a source
    checkout will require a recent Rust compiler. Those using packages or
    `pip install matrix-synapse` will not be affected. See the [upgrade
    notes](https://matrix-org.github.io/synapse/v1.67/upgrade.html#upgrading-to-v1670).

  • v1.66.0
    Synapse 1.66.0 (2022-08-31)
    ===========================
    
    No significant changes since 1.66.0rc2.
    
    This release removes the ability for homeservers to delegate email ownership
    verification and password reset confirmation to identity servers. This removal
    was originally planned for Synapse 1.64, but was later deferred until now. See
    the [upgrade notes](https://matrix-org.github.io/synapse/v1.66/upgrade.html#upgrading-to-v1660) for more details.
    
    Deployments with multiple workers should note that the direct TCP replication
    configuration was deprecated in Synapse v1.18.0 and will be removed in Synapse
    v1.67.0. In particular, the TCP `replication` [listener](https://matrix-org.github.io/synapse/v1.66/usage/configuration/config_documentation.html#listeners)
    type (not to be confused with the `replication` resource on the `http` listener
    type) and the `worker_replication_port` config option will be removed .
    
    To migrate to Redis, add the [`redis` config](https://matrix-org.github.io/synapse/v1.66/workers.html#shared-configuration),
    then remove the TCP `replication` listener from config of the master and
    `worker_replication_port` from worker config. Note that a HTTP listener with a
    `replication` resource is still required. See the
    [worker documentation](https://matrix-org.github.io/synapse/v1.66/workers.html)
    for more details.

    - Fix a bug introduced in Synapse 1.52.0 where sending server notices fails if `max_avatar_size` or `allowed_avatar_mimetypes` is set and not `system_mxid_avatar_url`. ([\#13566](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/13566))
    - Fix a bug where the `opentracing.force_tracing_for_users` config option would not apply to [`/sendToDevice`](https://spec.matrix.org/v1.3/client-server-api/#put_matrixclientv3sendtodeviceeventtypetxnid) and [`/keys/upload`](https://spec.matrix.org/v1.3/client-server-api/#post_matrixclientv3keysupload) requests.

  • v1.64.0
    Synapse 1.64.0 (2022-08-02)
    ===========================
    
    No significant changes since 1.64.0rc2.
    
    Deprecation Warning
    -------------------
    
    Synapse v1.66.0 will remove the ability to delegate the tasks of verifying email address ownership, and password reset confirmation, to an identity server.
    
    If you require your homeserver to verify e-mail addresses or to support password resets via e-mail, please configure your homeserver with SMTP access so that it can send e-mails on its own behalf.
    [Consult the configuration documentation for more information.](https://matrix-org.github.io/synapse/latest/usage/configuration/config_documentation.html#email)
    
    Synapse 1.64.0rc2 (2022-07-29)
    ==============================
    
    This RC reintroduces support for `account_threepid_delegates.email`, which was removed in 1.64.0rc1. It remains deprecated and will be removed altogether in Synapse v1.66.0. ([\#13406](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/13406))

    ==============================
    
    Features
    --------
    
    - Port the spam-checker API callbacks to a new, richer API. This is part of an ongoing change to let spam-checker modules inform users of the reason their event or operation is rejected. ([\#12857](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/12857), [\#13047](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/13047))

    Deprecations and Removals
    -------------------------
    
    - Remove the unspecced `DELETE /directory/list/room/{roomId}` endpoint, which hid rooms from the [public room directory](https://spec.matrix.org/v1.3/client-server-api/#listing-rooms). Instead, `PUT` to the same URL with a visibility of `"private"`. ([\#13123](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/13123))
