Release notes for Gerrit 2.0.13,
Gerrit is now available in the usual location:
*WARNING: This version contains a major configuration change.*
The schema upgrade needs to run in multiple parts. Apply the first half:
java -jar gerrit.war --cat sql/upgrade011_012_part1.sql | psql reviewdb
Now convert the system_config table to `$site_path/gerrit.config`.
java -jar gerrit.war ConvertSystemConfig
or, do this conversion by hand. See below for the mapping.
After verifying `$site_path/gerrit.config` is correct for your installation, drop the old columns from the system_config table. *This causes configuration data loss.*
java -jar gerrit.war --cat sql/upgrade011_012_part2.sql | psql reviewdb

New Features
* GERRIT-180 Rewrite outgoing email to be more user friendly
A whole slew of feature improvements on outgoing email formatting was closed by this one (massive) rewrite of the outgoing email implementation.
* GERRIT-187 Make n/p jump to last/first line if no more hunks are ...
When in a patch view (side by side or unified) new key bindings n/p jump to the previous or next hunk, which is very useful if you have context set to Whole File.
* GERRIT-59 Add Next/Previous/Up links to the PatchScreen
Patch views now contain links to the next and previous file in the patch set, as well as back up to the change. This has been a very long standing UI glitch that is finally resolved.
* Add "gerrit show-queue" to display the work queue
* GERRIT-110 Add admin command "gerrit replicate" to force resync a...
* Document all server side command line tools
There are new admin commands available over SSH, and all commands are now documented online. See [ Command Line Tools]. The new `gerrit replicate` is very useful when a slave goes offline for a bit, and returns later.
* Add remote.`<`name`>`.replicationdelay to control delay
* GERRIT-110 Automatically replicate all projects at startup
* GERRIT-110 Allow replication to match only some hosts
* GERRIT-200 Schedule replication by remote, not by project
Replication has been made more robust by allowing the administrator to control the delay, as to isolate replication scheduling into different pools. This is very useful when replicating to multiple sites, e.g. to a warm-spare in the same data center, and to a far away slave in another country. Gerrit also now forces a full replication on startup, to ensure all slaves are consistent.
* Move sshd_port to gerrit.config as sshd.listenaddress
The internal SSHD can now be bound to any IP address/port combinations, which can be useful if the system has multiple virtual IP addresses on a single network interface.
* Switch from Java Mail to Apache Commons NET basic SMTP...
* Block rcpt to addresses not on a whitelist
The new `sendemail` section of `$site_path/gerrit.config` now controls the configuration of the outgoing SMTP server, rather than relying upon a JNDI resource. See [ configuration] section sendemail for more details.

Misc. internal bugs, primarily caused by stupid programming mistakes.
* Invalid sshkeys cache entries when the sshUserName cha...
If a user tried to connect with the wrong user name, then tried to change their SSH User Name through the web UI (by selecting a different preferred email address), the negative cache entry created during their first connection attempt was stuck in the cache and future connections were still rejected. Gerrit now flushes both the old and the new user name cache entries when the user name changes.
* GERRIT-210 Allow MINA SSHD to log about host key creation
* Make SSH host key loading more consistent over time
It has been pointed out several times that its unclear why Gerrit keeps changing its host key with each startup; this is due to a failure to write the generated host key to disk. We now log about it, and make it less likely that other sorts of configuration modifications would cause an unexpected host key change.
* Always run SSH replication in BatchMode
* Special case NoRemoteRepository during replication
* Simplify error logged for invalid URLs in replication....
* Special case UnknownHostKey during replication
* Allow replication.config to drive the thread pool larg...
* Fix treatment of symbolic refs in PushOp
A bunch of bug fixes related to error handling during replication. Errors are now logged in a more clear fashion, which should help administrators to debug replication problems.
* Restore Ctrl-Backspace in comment editor
* Use server name for ssh_info instead of local address
* Use server name for advertised SSH host keys
* Don't reverse resolve CNAMEs when advertising our SSHD
