RhodeCode 4.9.0 Release: VCS Security Release


#1

Release Date

  • 2017-08-12

New Features

General

  • Off cycle Minor release to fix SCM vulnerabilities.

Security

Performance

  • Fixed Mercurial Stream support for very large repositories. Due to discovered
    bug in WebOb library we manage to fix Mercurial stream support.
    Now cloning very large repos e.g 100GB, ~1mln commits should be much
    faster, and use less memory.

Fixes

  • Fixed problem with default-reviewers in EE package that was missing panel
    title and in some occasions generate 500 errors.
  • Fixed problem with potential URL generation inside our integration.
    This was introduced during pyramid porting. We know ensure that proper
    routing generation is done on all events.

Upgrade notes

  • The 4.9.0 release is an off-cycle release. Due to the fact that we needed to
    bump Mercurial from 4.1.X to 4.2.X, and Subversion from 1.9.4 to 1.9.7, we
    released this version not as 4.8.1 security bug fix but 4.9.0.
    We know historically that SVN and Mercurial can have internal api changes.
    We tested basic functionality for all 3 vcs-es but due to very short release
    time we were unable to test everything. Please report any found problems to us
    and we’ll for sure address them.

    Note to SVN users: Please make sure to upgrade mod_dav to 1.9.7 version.
    At this time we know Wandisco provides 1.9.7 packages for most major distros.
