Release notes for Gerrit 2.0.12
Gerrit 2.0.12 is now available in the usual location:
*WARNING: This version contains a schema change.*
Apply the schema upgrade:
java -jar gerrit.war --cat sql/upgrade010_011.sql | psql reviewdb
Important Notes
Java 6 Required
Gerrit now requires running within a Java 6 (or later) JVM.
Protocol change
The protocol between the browser based JavaScript and the server has changed. After installing 2.0.12 users need to load the site page again to ensure they are running 2.0.12 or later. Users can verify they have the new version by checking the version number in the footer in the lower right. Users who don't load the new version (e.g. are using a stale tab from a week ago) will see errors when trying to view patches.
New Features
* Honor during upload
* Also scan by preferred email for --reviewers and --cc ...
Better DWIMery for matching reviewers by name, email address, or just local name (e.g. "jdoe") if using HTTP authentication with email_format.
* Add support for MySQL database
Now MySQL can be used as a backend data store.
* Switch all current SSH commands to use args4j
* Allow targeted cache flushes to only specific caches
SSH commands, especially administrative ones like "gerrit show-caches", "gerrit flush-caches", or "gerrit show-connections" now accept options like "-h"/"--help" to view command line options, and use a more typical option parsing semantics.
* GERRIT-164 Bind our SSH daemon with SO_REUSEADDR
* Honor sshd.tcpKeepAlive for TCP keep alive controls
* Enable SSH daemon cipher and MAC configuration
The SSH daemon now binds with SO_REUSEADDR, making warm-restarts of the daemon easier, especially if the site is busy. Additionally, gerrit.config gained some new options to further control the behavior of the internal SSHD.
* Add admin command 'gerrit show-connections'
The new "gerrit show-connections" command reports who is connected, from what host, and what command(s) they are running on that SSH session.
* Replace the top menu bar with a tab panel and links
* GERRIT-27 Add a search box to quickly locate changes by change n...
The top menu bar area has been redesigned, and a search box has been added on the right, below the username and Settings links. Currently the search box only accepts change numbers, but in the future we hope to support additional types of query strings.
* Allow users to disable clippy the flash movie if they ...
A new per-account setting permits users to disable the clippy Flash movie that supports copying text to the clipboard. In every context where this movie appears clicking on the text converts it to a text box, allowing a fast "click Ctrl-C" interaction to place the text on the clipboard. Personally I've found that loading 3 Flash movies on a change page really slowed down the UI rendering, so I wanted to disable the Flash movies.
* Allow users to control the number of results per page
A new per-account setting allows users to control how many rows appear per page in the All screens, like All Open Changes, etc.

* Add global jump navigation keys for the main menu
Keyboard bindings have been completely overhauled in this release, and should now work on every browser. Press '?' in any context to see the available actions. Please note that this help is context sensitive, so you will only see keys that make sense in the current context. Actions in a user dashboard screen differ from actions in a patch (for example), but where possible the same key is used when the logical meaning is unchanged.
Bug Fixes
* Ignore "SshException: Already closed" errors
Hides some non-errors from the log file.
* GERRIT-86 Stop generating raw #target anchor tags
Should be a minor improvement for MSIE 6 users.
