# Changelog

## v5.0.0-rc.1 (not released yet)


* **Important** Private and internal video files are now protected. See [#5370]( for more information, but see below for most important information:
* For private/internal videos on filesystem:
* These videos are now under a `private/` subdirectory in `videos/` and `streaming-playlists/` directories
* Nginx doesn't serve these private files anymore, the requests are forwarded to PeerTube that will check authentication
* For private/internal videos in object storage:
* These videos have now a private ACL
* PeerTube proxifies requests to private object storage (using pre-signed URLs is not possible as explained in [#5370](
* Torrent files and magnet URIs of private/internal videos don't contain a webseed URL anymore since they require authentication
* **Important** You need to manually execute a migration script after your upgrade to migrate private/internal video files:
* Classic installation: `cd /var/www/peertube/peertube-latest && sudo -u peertube NODE_CONFIG_DIR=/var/www/peertube/config NODE_ENV=production node dist/scripts/migrations/peertube-5.0.js`
* Docker installation: `cd /var/www/peertube-docker && docker-compose exec -u peertube peertube node dist/scripts/migrations/peertube-5.0.js`
* There is a new `secrets.peertube` configuration. You must fill it before running PeerTube v5
* You must update your nginx configuration:
* We introduced a new `location` for plugin websocket routes
* We introduced a new `location` for private videos files

### Documentation

* Add [Monitoring/Observability documentation]( using PeerTube OpenTelemetry feature

### Maintenance

* REST API breaking change:
* `role` is now `` and `roleLabel` is `role.label` in user response
* We now store the complete remote video description:
* Deprecate `description` in favour of `truncatedDescription` when listing videos
* Complete description is sent by the server in `description` when getting a specific video
* Deprecate `/api/v1/videos/:id/description` endpoint
* `search.disable_local_search` disables local search in client search bar only and doesn't disable it on server side anymore [#5411](
