New Features#

  • My account: made pull requests aggregate view for users look like not created in 1995. Now uses a consistent look with repo one.

  • emails: expose profile link on registation email that super-admins receive. Implements #3999.

  • Social auth: move the buttons to the top of nav so they are easier to reach.


  • Encryption: allow to pass in alternative key for encryption values. Now users can use rhodecode.encrypted_values.secret that is alternative key, de-coupled from beaker.session key.

  • Encryption: Implement a slightly improved AesCipher encryption. This addresses issues from #4036.

  • Encryption: encrypted values now by default uses HMAC signatures to detect if data or secret key is incorrect. The strict checks can be disabled using rhodecode.encrypted_values.strict = false .ini setting


  • Sql: use smarter JOINs when fetching repository information

  • Helpers: optimize slight calls for link_to_user to save some intense queries.

  • App settings: use computed caches for repository settings, this in some cases brings almost 4x performance increase for large repos with a lot of issue tracker patterns.


  • Fixed events on user pre/post create actions

  • Authentication: fixed problem with saving forms with errors on auth plugins

  • Svn: Avoid chunked transfer for Subversion that caused checkout issues in some cases.

  • Users: fix generate new user password helper.

  • Celery: fixed problem with workers running action in sync mode in some cases.

  • Setup-db: fix redundant question on writable dir. The question needs to be asked only when the dir is actually not writable.

  • Elasticsearch: fixed issues when searching single repo using elastic search

  • Social auth: fix issues with non-active users using social authentication causing a 500 error.

  • Fixed problem with largefiles extensions on per-repo settings using local .hgrc files present inside the repo directory.
