This upgrades the Synapse requirement to 1.18.0 and fixes all backwards
incompatibilities that have been introduced.

This is mainly related to the [alias semantics change (MSC2432)](matrix-org/matrix-spec-proposals#2432).

turt2live added a commit to matrix-org/synapse that referenced this issue Jan 26, 2021
[MSC2432](matrix-org/matrix-spec-proposals#2432) added this endpoint originally but it has since been included in the spec for nearly a year. 

We can't reasonably remove the unstable endpoint as client implementations still rely on it, and those clients cannot rely on `r0.6.x` appearing in the `/versions` to detect if this stable endpoint exists. It's proposed to introduce a transition period for implementations which may be stuck on the old endpoint of 2 months (minimum). After that point, Synapse can (and should) remove the unstable endpoint without warning.

The exact timelines are to be determined by the synapse team, however.

This is progress towards #8334

Synapse 1.37.0 (2021-06-29)
===========================

This release deprecates the current spam checker interface. See the [upgrade notes](https://matrix-org.github.io/synapse/develop/upgrade#deprecation-of-the-current-spam-checker-interface) for more information on how to update to the new generic module interface.

This release also removes support for fetching and renewing TLS certificates using the ACME v1 protocol, which has been fully decommissioned by Let's Encrypt on June 1st 2021. Admins previously using this feature should use a [reverse proxy](https://matrix-org.github.io/synapse/develop/reverse_proxy.html) to handle TLS termination, or use an external ACME client (such as [certbot](https://certbot.eff.org/)) to retrieve a certificate and key and provide them to Synapse using the `tls_certificate_path` and `tls_private_key_path` configuration settings.

Synapse 1.37.0rc1 (2021-06-24)
==============================

Features
--------

- Implement "room knocking" as per [MSC2403](matrix-org/matrix-spec-proposals#2403). Contributed by @Sorunome and anoa.

- Add experimental support for backfilling history into rooms ([MSC2716](matrix-org/matrix-spec-proposals#2716)). ([\#9247](matrix-org/synapse#9247))
- Implement a generic interface for third-party plugin modules. ([\#10062](matrix-org/synapse#10062), [\#10206](matrix-org/synapse#10206))
- Implement config option `sso.update_profile_information` to sync SSO users' profile information with the identity provider each time they login. Currently only displayname is supported. ([\#10108](matrix-org/synapse#10108))
- Ensure that errors during startup are written to the logs and the console. ([\#10191](matrix-org/synapse#10191))


Bugfixes
--------

- Fix a bug introduced in Synapse v1.25.0 that prevented the `ip_range_whitelist` configuration option from working for federation and identity servers. Contributed by @mikure. ([\#10115](matrix-org/synapse#10115))
- Remove a broken import line in Synapse's `admin_cmd` worker. Broke in Synapse v1.33.0. ([\#10154](matrix-org/synapse#10154))
- Fix a bug introduced in Synapse v1.21.0 which could cause `/sync` to return immediately with an empty response. ([\#10157](matrix-org/synapse#10157), [\#10158](matrix-org/synapse#10158))
- Fix a minor bug in the response to `/_matrix/client/r0/user/{user}/openid/request_token` causing `expires_in` to be a float instead of an integer. Contributed by @lukaslihotzki. ([\#10175](matrix-org/synapse#10175))
- Always require users to re-authenticate for dangerous operations: deactivating an account, modifying an account password, and adding 3PIDs. ([\#10184](matrix-org/synapse#10184))
- Fix a bug introduced in Synpase v1.7.2 where remote server count metrics collection would be incorrectly delayed on startup. Found by @heftig. ([\#10195](matrix-org/synapse#10195))
- Fix a bug introduced in Synapse v1.35.1 where an `allow` key of a `m.room.join_rules` event could be applied for incorrect room versions and configurations. ([\#10208](matrix-org/synapse#10208))
- Fix performance regression in responding to user key requests over federation. Introduced in Synapse v1.34.0rc1. ([\#10221](matrix-org/synapse#10221))


Improved Documentation
----------------------

- Add a new guide to decoding request logs. ([\#8436](matrix-org/synapse#8436))

- Stop supporting the unstable spaces prefixes from MSC1772. ([\#10161](matrix-org/synapse#10161))
- Remove Synapse's support for automatically fetching and renewing certificates using the ACME v1 protocol. This protocol has been fully turned off by Let's Encrypt for existing installations on June 1st 2021. Admins previously using this feature should use a [reverse proxy](https://matrix-org.github.io/synapse/develop/reverse_proxy.html) to handle TLS termination, or use an external ACME client (such as [certbot](https://certbot.eff.org/)) to retrieve a certificate and key and provide them to Synapse using the `tls_certificate_path` and `tls_private_key_path` configuration settings. ([\#10194](matrix-org/synapse#10194))

turt2live added a commit that referenced this issue Jan 5, 2022
Through attempting to land [Synapse#11667](matrix-org/synapse#11667) it was found that Synapse doesn't return the `aliases` property on `/publicRooms` as it was [removed](matrix-org/synapse#6970) by a [tracking issue](matrix-org/synapse#6898) referencing [MSC2432](#2432) as its base. Though MSC2432 does not make mention of this, the [document](https://docs.google.com/document/d/1NNDkobiFLeUkJtyj0H6qvKIedgvIkZnFKo78-03cGEk/edit) the MSC is based upon makes deliberate effort to mention the endpoint and the removal of `aliases`. Thus, it is determined as a likely accidental omission from the formal MSC and therefore the formal spec.

This has been corrected here by amending the MSC (per the process) and removing the field, basing itself off of the [spec PR for spaces](#3610) for diff clarity.
