Synapse 1.0.0rc1 (2019-06-07)

Features

  • Synapse now more efficiently collates room statistics. (#4338, #5260, #5324)
  • Add experimental support for relations (aka reactions and edits). (#5220)
  • Ability to configure default room version. (#5223, #5249)
  • Allow configuring a range for the account validity startup job. (#5276)
  • CAS login will now hit the r0 API, not the deprecated v1 one. (#5286)
  • Validate federation server TLS certificates by default (implements MSC1711). (#5359)
  • Update /_matrix/client/versions to reference support for r0.5.0. (#5360)
  • Add a script to generate new signing-key files. (#5361)
  • Update upgrade and installation guides ahead of 1.0. (#5371)
  • Replace the perspectives configuration section with trusted_key_servers, and make validating the signatures on responses optional (since TLS will do this job for us). (#5374)
  • Add ability to perform password reset via email without trusting the identity server. (#5377)
  • Set default room version to v4. (#5379)
