Release notes for Gerrit 2.0.24,,
Gerrit 2.0.24 is now available in the usual location:
Schema Change
*WARNING: This version contains a schema change* (since 2.0.21)
Apply the database specific schema script:
java -jar gerrit.war --cat sql/upgrade018_019_postgres.sql | psql reviewdb
java -jar gerrit.war --cat sql/upgrade018_019_mysql.sql | mysql reviewdb
LDAP Change
LDAP groups are now bound via their full distinguished name, and not
by their common name. Sites using LDAP groups will need to have the
site administrator visit every LDAP backed group through the web UI
(Admin > Groups), search for, and select the underlying LDAP group
from the directory server.
This change was made to remove some of the guesswork when it comes
to setting up an LDAP enabled group, as well as to permit creating
new LDAP enabled groups completely from the web UI. It also removes
an ambiguous case when different parts of the same directory space
create identically named groups.
New Features
* Check if the user has permission to upload changes
The new READ +2 permission is required to upload a change to a
project, while READ +1 permits read but denies uploading a change.
The schema upgrade script automatically converts READ +1 to +2.
* Use LDAP DN to match LDAP group to Gerrit group
* issue 297 Allow admins to search for and bind to LDAP groups
As noted above, LDAP groups now use the full DN to match to their
Gerrit database counterpart, rather than just the common name.
Administrators may now create Gerrit groups and attach them to
any LDAP group, by performing a query on the LDAP directory for
matching groups and selecting a result.
* issue 301 Try to prevent forgotten `git add` during replace
Users are now stopped from performing a replace of a patch set if
they have not made a meaningful change (modify a file, or modify
the commit message). If only the commit message was modified,
a warning is printed, but the replace still occurs.
* issue 126 Link to our issue tracker in the page footer
The footer now includes a link to the Gerrit project's issue
tracker, so end-users can more easily report bugs or feature
requests back to the developers.
* issue 300 Support SMTP over SSL/TLS
Encrypted SMTP is now supported natively within Gerrit, see
Bug Fixes
* issue 290 Fix invalid drop index in upgrade017_018_mysql
Minor syntax error in SQL script.
* Fixed ActiveDirectory LDAP group support. Allows recu...
* issue 307 Set proper LDAP defaults for Active Directory
ActiveDirectory is now better supported out of the box. Defaults
for the LDAP configuration settings are automatically guessed at
startup based upon the type of server configured in ldap.server.
Recursive groups (group which is a member of a group) is also
now supported when using an ActiveDirectory server. Other LDAP
servers (e.g. OpenLDAP) probably don't support this.
* "250-AUTH " will be returned if 'AUTH' response does ...
* Fix: Authentication fail when authTypes is empty
* Fix a typo that broke the gerrit build
Outgoing SMTP sometimes failed to authenticate against a
SMTP server due to slightly incorrect handling of the AUTH
* Correct scp commands in documentation to include -p
Our documentation of how to copy the commit-msg hook down via
scp did not include the -p option, which is necessary to make
the client preserve the executable flag on the hook script.
* issue 291 Suggest latin1 charset for MySQL databases
Documentation was updated to encourage using latin1 for MySQL
as MySQL fails with key too long errors during schema creation
when the database is using the UTF-8 character set.
* issue 294 Fix OpenID self registration dialog
OpenID 'Register' hyperlink was broken due to the dialog having
no content added to it before display. This bug was fixed by
using the proper OpenID login dialog.
* issue 309 Clear message on publish comments screen after submit...
The publish comments button preserved your last comment, making
it easy for a user to accidentally publish the same message on
the same change twice. The message is now cleared after it has
been successfully sent.
* issue 299 Remove the branches table from the database
* Display current branch SHA-1 in Branches tab
* issue 299 Display not-yet-born HEAD branch in Branches tab
The not-yet-born branch in an empty project is now shown in the
Branches tab. (This is based on the value of the HEAD symbolic
reference within the project's Git repository.)
The branches table was removed from the database. We now fully
rely upon the Git repository to determine which branches exist
and thus permit changes to be uploaded to.
* issue 296 Make help more friendly over SSH
`ssh -p 29418 localhost help` is now more user friendly.
* Don't request registration if the account exists
* issue 38 Fix OpenID delegate authentication
OpenID authentication was sometimes asking providers for
registation data when we already had it on hand, fixed.
OpenID delegate identities were being stored rather than claimed
identities when the claimed identity is just a delegate to the
delegate provider. We now store both in the account.
Fixes in
* Fix unused import in OpenIdServiceImpl
* dev-readme: Fix formatting of initdb command
Minor documentation/code fixes with no impact on execution.
* Fix LDAP account lookup when user not in group
Fixes a NullPointerException when a user is not in any group
and the underlying LDAP server is ActiveDirectory.
* issue 315 Correct sendemail.smtppass
Fixes sendemail configuration to use the documented smtppass
variable and not the undocumented smtpuserpass variable.
Fixes in
* Fix CreateSchema to create Administrators group
* Fix CreateSchema to set type of Registered Users group
* Default AccountGroup instances to type INTERNAL
* Document the various AccountGroup.Type states better
CreateSchema was broken in 2.0.24 and due to the default
groups being misconfigured during insertion. Fixed.
* Grant anonymous uses READ +1, registered users READ +...
Default permissions were a bit confusing, there is no point in an
anonymous user having READ +2.
* Use the H2 database for unit tests
* Unit test for SystemConfigProvider and CreateSchema
Added unit tests to validate CreateSchema works properly, so we
don't have a repeat of breakage here.
