    Synapse 1.51.0 (2022-01-25)
    ===========================
    
    No significant changes since 1.51.0rc2.
    
    Synapse 1.51.0 deprecates `webclient` listeners and non-HTTP(S) `web_client_location`s. Support for these will be removed in Synapse 1.53.0, at which point Synapse will not be capable of directly serving a web client for Matrix.

    ==============================
    
    Bugfixes
    --------
    
    - Fix a bug introduced in Synapse 1.40.0 that caused Synapse to fail to process incoming federation traffic after handling a large amount of events in a v1 room. ([\#11806](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/11806))

    - Fix bundled aggregations not being included in the `/sync` response, per [MSC2675](https://github.com/matrix-org/matrix-doc/pull/2675).

  • v1.49.2
    6b6dcdc3 · update changelog ·
    Synapse 1.49.2 (2021-12-21)
    ===========================
    
    This release fixes a regression introduced in Synapse 1.49.0 which could cause `/sync` requests to take significantly longer. This would particularly affect "initial" syncs for users participating in a large number of rooms, and in extreme cases, could make it impossible for such users to log in on a new client.
    
    **Note:** in line with our [deprecation policy](https://matrix-org.github.io/synapse/latest/deprecation_policy.html) for platform dependencies, this will be the last release to support Python 3.6 and PostgreSQL 9.6, both of which have now reached upstream end-of-life. Synapse will require Python 3.7+ and PostgreSQL 10+.
    
    **Note:** We will also stop producing packages for Ubuntu 18.04 (Bionic Beaver) after this release, as it uses Python 3.6.
    
    Bugfixes
    --------
    
    - Fix a performance regression in `/sync` handling, introduced in 1.49.0. ([\#11583](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/11583))
    
    Internal Changes

  • v1.49.1
    Synapse 1.49.1 (2021-12-21)
    ===========================
    
    This release fixes a regression introduced in Synapse 1.49.0 which could cause `/sync` requests to take significantly longer. This would particularly affect "initial" syncs for users participating in a large number of rooms, and in extreme cases, could make it impossible for such users to log in on a new client.
    
    **Note:** in line with our [deprecation policy](https://matrix-org.github.io/synapse/latest/deprecation_policy.html) for platform dependencies, this will be the last release to support Python 3.6 and PostgreSQL 9.6, both of which have now reached upstream end-of-life.

    Synapse 1.49.0 (2021-12-14)
    ===========================
    
    No significant changes since version 1.49.0rc1.
    
    Support for Ubuntu 21.04 ends next month on the 20th of January
    ---------------------------------------------------------------
    
    For users of Ubuntu 21.04 (Hirsute Hippo), please be aware that [upstream support for this version of Ubuntu will end next month][Ubuntu2104EOL].
    We will stop producing packages for Ubuntu 21.04 after upstream support ends.

    The wiki has been migrated to the documentation website
    -------------------------------------------------------
    
    We've decided to move the existing, somewhat stagnant pages from the GitHub wiki
    to the [documentation website](https://matrix-org.github.io/synapse/latest/).
    
    This was done for two reasons. The first was to ensure that changes are checked by
    multiple authors before being committed (everyone makes mistakes!) and the second
    was visibility of the documentation. Not everyone knows that Synapse has some very
    useful information hidden away in its GitHub wiki pages. Bringing them to the
    documentation website should help with visibility, as well as keep all Synapse documentation
    in one, easily-searchable location.
    
    Note that contributions to the documentation website happen through [GitHub pull
    requests](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/pulls). Please visit [#synapse-dev:matrix.org](https://matrix.to/#/#synapse-dev:matrix.org)
    if you need help with the process!
    
    Synapse 1.49.0rc1 (2021-12-07)
    ==============================
    
    Features
    --------
    
    - Add [MSC3030](https://github.com/matrix-org/matrix-doc/pull/3030) experimental client and federation API endpoints to get the closest event to a given timestamp. ([\#9445](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/9445))
    - Include bundled relation aggregations during a limited `/sync` request and `/relations` request, per [MSC2675](https://github.com/matrix-org/matrix-doc/pull/2675). ([\#11284](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/11284), [\#11478](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/11478))
    - Add plugin support for controlling database background updates. ([\#11306](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/11306), [\#11475](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/11475), [\#11479](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/11479))
    - Support the stable API endpoints for [MSC2946](https://github.com/matrix-org/matrix-doc/pull/2946): the room `/hierarchy` endpoint. ([\#11329](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/11329))
    - Add admin API to get some information about federation status with remote servers. ([\#11407](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/11407))
    - Support expiry of refresh tokens and expiry of the overall session when refresh tokens are in use. ([\#11425](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/11425))
    - Stabilise support for [MSC2918](https://github.com/matrix-org/matrix-doc/blob/main/proposals/2918-refreshtokens.md#msc2918-refresh-tokens) refresh tokens as they have now been merged into the Matrix specification. ([\#11435](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/11435), [\#11522](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/11522))
    - Update [MSC2918 refresh token](https://github.com/matrix-org/matrix-doc/blob/main/proposals/2918-refreshtokens.md#msc2918-refresh-tokens) support to confirm with the latest revision: accept the `refresh_tokens` parameter in the request body rather than in the URL parameters. ([\#11430](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/11430))
    - Support configuring the lifetime of non-refreshable access tokens separately to refreshable access tokens. ([\#11445](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/11445))
    - Expose `synapse_homeserver` and `synapse_worker` commands as entry points to run Synapse's main process and worker processes, respectively. Contributed by @Ma27. ([\#11449](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/11449))
    - `synctl stop` will now wait for Synapse to exit before returning. ([\#11459](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/11459), [\#11490](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/11490))
    - Extend the "delete room" admin api to work correctly on rooms which have previously been partially deleted. ([\#11523](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/11523))
    - Add support for the `/_matrix/client/v3/login/sso/redirect/{idpId}` API from Matrix v1.1. This endpoint was overlooked when support for v3 endpoints was added in Synapse 1.48.0rc1. ([\#11451](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/11451))
    
    Bugfixes

    - Fix a long-standing bug where all requests that read events from the database could get stuck as a result of losing the database connection, properly this time.

    Internal Changes
    ----------------

    ===========================
    
    This release fixes a security issue in the media store, affecting all prior releases of Synapse. Server administrators are encouraged to update Synapse as soon as possible. We are not aware of these vulnerabilities being exploited in the wild.
    
    Server administrators who are unable to update Synapse may use the workarounds described in the linked GitHub Security Advisory below.
    
    Security advisory
    -----------------
    
    The following issue is fixed in 1.47.1.
    
    - **[GHSA-3hfw-x7gx-437c](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/security/advisories/GHSA-3hfw-x7gx-437c) / [CVE-2021-41281](https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2021-41281): Path traversal when downloading remote media.**
    
      Synapse instances with the media repository enabled can be tricked into downloading a file from a remote server into an arbitrary directory, potentially outside the media store directory.
    
      The last two directories and file name of the path are chosen randomly by Synapse and cannot be controlled by an attacker, which limits the impact.
    
      Homeservers with the media repository disabled are unaffected. Homeservers configured with a federation whitelist are also unaffected.
    
      Fixed by [91f2bd090](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/commit/91f2bd090).
