This release contains schema changes. To upgrade:
java -jar gerrit.war init -d site_path
This release deprecates the use of Velocity mail templates. It will soon be necessary to upgrade custom mail templates to Soy files.
Changes may be assigned to a specific user. This allows a workflow where the user that is assigned to a change is responsible for reviewing the change and/or passing the assignment on to another user.
In the UI, changes assigned to the currently logged in user are highlighted.
assignee: search predicate allows to find changes assigned to a given user.
Gerrit email messages are made easier to read by sending HTML content parts in addition to the existing text email content.
Mail templates can now be written using Closure Templates (Soy). Mail templates written in Velocity (VTL) are deprecated but still supported. Support for VTL will be dropped in the next release.
Gerrit now includes a new user interface, referred to as “PolyGerrit”, based on Polymer.
The UI can be switched between PolyGerrit and GWT by clicking the “New UI” and “Old UI” links in the site footer. Alternatively, the UI can be switched by adding
?polygerrit=0 to the URL.
Note that PolyGerrit is still under development. Most use cases are supported, but there are still some missing features compared to the GWT UI.
