* Update prebuild-install and lock runtime

In preparation for github actions, we need to update prebuild-install to allow for
local installation of a prebuild package.  This is provided in version 6.1.1.

Also, since in the binary.package_name field, the napi runtime is hardcoded, we have also
hardcoded the runtime into the install script for prebuild-install.

* Update changelog

10.3.0 Release notes (2021-3-30)

NOTE: This release has a number of fixes compared to v10.3.0-rc.1. For a complete changelog, please see v10.3.0-rc.1.

Enhancements

  • None.

Fixed

  • Classes names class_class_... were not handled correctly in queries. (realm/realm-core#4480)
  • Syncing large Decimal128 values will cause Assertion failed: cx.w[1] == 0. (realm/realm-core#4519, since v10.0.0)
  • Avoid race condition leading to possible hangs on Windows. (realm/realm-dotnet#2245)
  • During integration of a large amount of data from the MongoDB Realm, you may get Assertion failed: !fields.has_missing_parent_update(). (realm/realm-core#4497, since v6.0.0)

Compatibility

  • MongoDB Realm Cloud.
  • APIs are backwards compatible with all previous releases of Realm JavaScript in the 10.x.y series.

5.0.0 Release notes (2020-3-18)

NOTE: This version has been pre-released as v3.7.0-alpha.0 and v3.7.0-alpha.2. We have bumped the major version due to removed functionality in this release. We are releasing this as v5.0.0 instead of v4.0.0 as we also have an series of pre-releases of v4.0.0 which are incompatible with this version as the Realm file format is upgraded. We have therefore decided to skip version v4.0.0, make this version 5.0.0 and we will then release the 4.0.0 version as the next major version - v6.0.0.

Enhancements

  • Added support for all Node.js versions from and above version 10. (#2516)
  • Helper methods obj.keys(), obj.entries() are now available to return the properties of that Realm Object, including the Realm properties defined by the schema.
  • An instance method toJSON() is implemented on every Realm Object class to support JSON.stringify() to work as expected on every instance.

Breaking changes

  • Node.js 8 is not supported anymore.
  • Realm objects properties are now defined as accessors on the instance prototype. Previously they were defined as values on the instance.
  • Due to the accessor properties change above, calling Object.keys(), Object.entries(), and Object.getOwnPropertyDescriptors() on Realm.Object instances (objects from a Realm) will no longer return the Realm schema properties.

Fixed

  • ECMAScript 2015 Class syntax is fully supported by moving all properties to be accessors on the instance prototype allowing Realm JavaScript to invoke class constructors as constructors (using new instead of previously calling them as functions with 'call'). (#998)

Compatibility

  • Realm Object Server: 3.23.1 or later.
  • APIs are backwards compatible with all previous release of realm in the 2.x.y series.
  • File format: Generates Realms with format v9 (reads and upgrades all previous formats).

Internal

  • Complete rewrite of Realm JavaScript for Node.js on top of Node.js N-API
  • Realm JavaScript is now binary compatible between Node.js versions (due to NAPI API stability and backward compatibility).

3.0.0 Release notes (2019-9-11)

Breaking Changes

  • Reworked the internal implementation of the permission API. For the most part, the method signatures haven't changed or where they have changed, the API have remained close to the original (e.g. Results<T> has changed to T[]).
    • Changed the return type of User.getGrantedPermissions from Results<Permission> to Permission[]. This means that the collection is no longer observable like regular Realm-backed collections. If you need to be notified for changes of this collection, you need to implement a polling-based mechanism yourself.
    • Permission.mayRead/mayWrite/mayManage have been deprecated in favor of a more-consistent AccessLevel API.
    • Removed the User.openManagementRealm method.
    • Changed the return type of User.applyPermissions from Promise<PermissionChange> to Promise<void>.

Enhancements

  • Added User.getPermissionOffers API to get a collection of all permission offers the user has created.

Fixed

  • Named pipes on Android are now created with 0666 permissions instead of 0600. This fixes a bug on Huawei devices which caused named pipes to change owners during app upgrades causing subsequent ACCESS DENIED errors. This should have no practical security implications. (realm/realm-core#3328, since v0.10.0)
  • fix error screen shown in React Native when refreshAdminToken and refreshAccessToken receive error result

Compatibility

  • Realm Object Server: 3.23.1 or later.

2.29.0 Release notes (2019-7-3)

Enhancements

  • For synchronized Realms it is now possible to choose the behavior when opening the Realm. You can either choose to open the local Realm immediately or wait for it to be synchronized with the server first. These options are controlled through Realm.Sync.SyncConfiguration.newRealmFileBehavior and Realm.Sync.SyncConfiguration.existingRealmFileBehavior. See the docs for more information.
  • Added support for unicode characters in realm path and filenames for Windows. Thanks to @rajivshah3. (realm-core#3293 and #2319)

Fixed

  • A React Native iOS app could crash on the first launch. Thanks to @max-zu. (#2400, since v1.0.0)
  • When creating objects using migration, a native crash could occur if a new optional property was added to the schema. (#1612, since v1.0.0)
  • Constructing an inclusions made unnecessary table comparisons. This resulted in poor performance for subscriptions using the includeLinkingObjects functionality. (realm/realm-core#3311, since v2.27.0-rc.3)

Compatibility

  • Realm Object Server: 3.21.0 or later.
  • APIs are backwards compatible with all previous release of realm in the 2.x.y series.

2.28.0 Release notes (2019-5-22)

Enhancements

  • Improve performance when using Chrome Debugging with React Native by adding caching and reducing the number of RPC calls required. Read-heavy workflows are as much as 10x faster. Write-heavy workflows will see a much smaller improvement, but also had a smaller performance hit to begin with. (Issue: #491, PR: #2373).
  • Reduce bundle size for React Native apps. Thanks to @lebedev. (#2241)
  • Support 64 bit for React Native Android. (#2221)

Fixed

  • Opening a query-based Realm using new Realm did not automatically add the required types to the schema when running in Chrome, resulting in errors when trying to manage subscriptions. (PR: #2373, since v2.15.0).
  • The Chrome debugger did not properly enforce read isolation, meaning that reading a property twice in a row could produce different values if another thread performed a write in between the reads. This was typically only relevant to synchronized Realms due to the lack of multithreading support in the supported Javascript environments. (PR: #2373, since v1.0.0).
  • The RPC server for Chrome debugging would sometimes deadlock if a notification fired at the same time as a Realm function which takes a callback was called. (PR: #2373, since v1.0.0 in various forms).

Compatibility

  • Realm Object Server: 3.21.0 or later.
  • APIs are backwards compatible with all previous release of realm in the 2.x.y series.
  • File format: Generates Realms with format v9 (Reads and upgrades all previous formats)

Internal

  • None.

  • HTTP requests made by the Sync client now always include a Host: header, as required by HTTP/1.1, although its value will be empty if no value is specified by the application. (sync v4.2.0)
  • The server no longer rejects subscriptions based on queries with distinct and/or limit clauses. (sync 4.2.0)
  • A bug was fixed where if a user had canCreate but not canUpdate privileges on a class, the user would be able to create the object, but not actually set any meaningful values on that object, despite the rule that objects created within the same transaction can always be modified. (sync 4.2.0)

2.26.1 Release notes (2019-4-12)

Enhancements

  • None.

Fixed

  • Fixed Xcode 10.2 Build Errors by providing kJSTypeSymbol for switch cases. (#2305 and #2246, since v2.25.0)

Compatibility

  • Realm Object Server: 3.11.0 or later.
  • APIs are backwards compatible with all previous release of realm in the 2.x.y series.
  • File format: Generates Realms with format v9 (Reads and upgrades all previous formats)

Internal

  • None.

2.26.0 Release notes (2019-4-4)

Enhancements

  • Add 4 new fields to NamedSubscription which reprents query-based subscriptions: createdAt, updatedAt, expiresAt and timeToLive. These make it possible to better reason about and control current subscriptions. (#2266)
  • Add the option of updating the query controlled by a subscription using either Results.subscribe({name: 'name', update: true}) or the NamedSubscription.query property. (#2266)
  • Add the option of setting a time-to-live for subscriptions using either Results.subscribe({name: 'name', timeToLive: <valueInMs>}) or the NamedSubscription.timeToLive property. (#2266)
  • Add Realm.Results.description() which returns a string representation of the query.
  • Add support for defining mapped properties in the schema using name: { type: 'int', mapTo: 'internalName' }. In that case the mapped name is used internally in the underlying Realm file, while the property key is used for reading/writing the property as well as querying it.
  • Add RealmObject.addListener(), RealmObject.removeListener(), and RealmObject.removeAllListeners() to set up and remove object-level notifications. (#763)
  • Add a new Realm.UpdateMode enum with the values: never, modified, all. This replaces the current Realm.create(type, properties, update) with Realm.create(type, properties, updateMode). Realm.create(type, properties, 'modified') is a new mode that only update existing properties that actually changed, while Realm.create(type, properties, 'never') is equal to Realm.create(type, properties, false) and Realm.create(type, properties, 'all') is equal to Realm.create(type, properties, true). Realm.create(type, properties, update) is now deprecated. (#2089)

Fixed

  • Fixed retrying authentication requests. The issue could be observed as "Cannot read property 'get' of undefined." errors being thrown when the authenticate requests were retried. (#2297, since v2.24.0)
  • Due to a rare race condition in some Android devices (including Samsung SM-T111), an app could crash hard. A workaround was introduced but never included in any releases. (#1895, since v2.11.0)

Compatibility

  • Realm Object Server: 3.11.0 or later.
  • APIs are backwards compatible with all previous release of realm in the 2.x.y series.
  • File format: Generates Realms with format v9 (Reads and upgrades all previous formats)

Internal

  • Updated to Object Store commit: ab91c2bb4a915c0f159291f08caf1dc13e717573
  • Fixed adding a property to an existing object schema using the internal realm._updateSchema. (#2283, since v2.24.0)

2.25.0 Release notes (2019-3-12)

Enhancements

Fixed

  • Fixed broken user auth functions when running in electron. (#2264, since v2.24.0)

Compatibility

  • Realm Object Server: 3.11.0 or later.
  • APIs are backwards compatible with all previous release of realm in the 2.x.y series.
  • File format: Generates Realms with format v9 (Reads and upgrades all previous formats)

Internal

  • Added Realm.Sync.SyncConfiguration._sessionStopPolicy for setting the behaviour of the sync session.
  • Added Realm.Sync._hasExistingSessions() which returns true if Realm has a reference to any sync session regardless of its state. (#2248)
  • Implemented the integration tests using TypeScript.

2.24.0 Release notes (2019-2-27)

Enhancements

  • Add support for React Native v0.58. (#2239)

Fixed

  • Fixed an assertion failure when using a synchronized Realm and an object was created after another object was created with an int primary key of null. (#3227)
  • When debugging with React Native, calling Realm.open() would crash since Realm._asyncOpen() was not available in the debugger. (#2234, since v2.20.0)
  • Added several missing functions to the Chrome debugging support library. (#2242, since v2.2.19).
  • Fixed incorrect results when reading data from Realm from within a callback function when debugging in Chrome. (#2242).
  • Report the correct user agent to the sync server rather than always "RealmJS/Unknown". (#2242, since v2.23.0).

Compatibility

  • Realm Object Server: 3.11.0 or later.
  • APIs are backwards compatible with all previous release of realm in the 2.x.y series.
  • File format: Generates Realms with format v9 (Reads and upgrades all previous formats)

Internal

  • Add integration tests running in various environments (Node.js on MacOS and Linux, React Native on iOS and Android & Electron main and renderer processes on Linux). Existing tests should eventually be migrated to this to ensure they pass in all relevant environments. (#2227)
  • Add the method realm._updateSchema to perform schema manipulation on an open Realm. Specifically creating an object schema and a property on an existing object schema are tested. It's undocumented as it's not fully tested and the API is subject to change. (partly solving #2216)

2.23.0 Release notes (2019-2-1)

Enhancements

  • Added Realm.copyBundledRealmFiles() to TypeScript definitions. (#2176)
  • The parser now supports readable timestamps with a T separator in addition to the originally supported @ separator. For example: startDate > 1981-11-01T23:59:59:1. (realm/realm-core#3198)
  • It is now possible to store Realms on Android external storage with React Native by using Realm.Configuration.fifoFilesFallbackPath. (#2062)
  • New global notifier API introduced though Realm.Sync.addListener(config, event, callback). This also adds support for configuring the SSL connection. The old API Realm.Sync.AddListener(serverUrl, adminUser, filterRegex, event, event, callback) is deprecated. (#2243)

Fixed

  • Realm initialized the filesystem when being imported instead of waiting for the first Realm to be opened. ([#2218] (https://github.com/realm/realm-js/issues/2218), since v2.22.0)
  • Sync sessions for Realms which were closed while the session was paused would sometimes not be cleaned up correctly. (realm/realm-object-store#766, since v2.16.0)
  • Querying Realm instances obtained from Realm.Sync.Adapter would sometimes pin the read transaction version, resulting in the file rapidly growing in size as further transactions were processed. (realm/realm-object-store#766, since v2.0.2)
  • Realm initialized the filesystem when being imported instead of waiting for the first Realm to be opened. ([#2218] (https://github.com/realm/realm-js/issues/2218), since v2.22.0).

Compatibility

  • Realm Object Server: 3.11.0 or later.
  • APIs are backwards compatible with all previous release of realm in the 2.x.y series.

Fixed

  • Fixed a bug that prevented admin token users from being properly deserialized when calling User.deserialize. (#2155, since v2.16.0)
  • _initializeSyncManager missing when debugging React Native in Chrome. Resulted in messages like realmConstructor.Sync._initializeSyncManager is not a function (#2128, since v2.20.0)
  • The LIMIT predicate on query-based sync Realms will now be evaluated after the permission check instead of before. Sometimes the predicates would not get all the objects matched.
  • An index out of range error in query-based sync is fixed. The bug would manifest itself with a list ndx out of range assertion.
  • If encryption was enabled, decrypted pages were not released until the file was closed, causing excessive usage of memory.

Compatibility

Enhancements

  • Adds support for setting a custom User-Agent string using Realm.Sync.setUserAgent(...). This string will be sent to the server when creating a connection. (#2102)
  • Adds support for uploading and downloading changes using Realm.Sync.Session.uploadAllLocalChanges(timeout) and Realm.Sync.Session.downloadAllRemoteChanges(timeout). (#2122)

Fixed

  • Tokens are refreshed ahead of time. If the lifetime of the token is lower than the threshold for refreshing it will cause the client to continously refresh, spamming the server with refresh requests. A lower bound of 10 seconds has been introduced. (#2115, since v1.0.2)
  • Prevent automatic token refreshes for Realms that have been closed. Previously, these could have resulted in obscure Unhandled session token refresh error messages in the logs that were benign. (#2119)
  • When trying to debug, users could experience a crash with the message this._constructor is not a function. (https://github.com/realm/realm-js/issues/491#issuecomment-438688937, since v2.19.0-rc.4)
  • Check the correct name when automatically adding the permission object schemas to the schema for query-based sync realms so that defining types with the same name works correctly. (#2121, since 2.15.0)

2.19.1 Release notes (2018-11-15)

Enhancements

  • None.

Fixed

  • The Typescript definition for Realm.Permissions.Permission did not have the correct role property defined. This could result in compilation errors like this error TS2339: Property 'role' does not exist on type 'Permission'. (#2106, since v2.3.0.)
  • Removes calls to new Buffer() as this is deprecated with Node 10. (#2107, since v2.19.0)
  • Updates the type definitions to be explicit that the return type of the generics Realm.objects<T>, Realm.objectForPrimaryKey<T>, etc. is an intersection of T & Realm.Object. (#1838)
  • A set of bugs that could lead to bad changesets have been fixed. An example of error message is Failed to parse, or apply received changeset: ndx out of range. (Fixed by Realm Sync v3.13.3)

Compatibility

  • Realm Object Server: 3.11.0 or later.
  • APIs are backwards compatible with all previous release of realm in the 2.x.y series.
  • File format: Generates Realms with format v9 (Reads and upgrades all previous formats)

  • Distinguish between node.js and electron in the BindingType field when submitting analytics. (#2108)
  • Adds a package to compute the Windows analytics identifier rather than returning null which likely accounts for the disproportionally large number of unique Windows users. (#2108)
  • Upgrades to Realm Core v5.12.1.
  • Upgrades to Realm Sync v3.13.4.

2.19.0 Release notes (2018-11-8)

This release contains all changes from v2.19.0-rc.1 to v2.19.0-rc.5.

Enhancements

  • Adds SyncConfig.customQueryBasedSyncIdentifier to allow customizing the identifier appended to the Realm path when opening a query based Realm. This identifier is used to distinguish between query based Realms opened on different devices and by default Realm builds it as a combination of a user's id and a random string, allowing the same user to subscribe to different queries on different devices. In very rare cases, you may want to share query based Realms between devices and specifying the customQueryBasedSyncIdentifier allows you to do that.
  • Adds Realm.subscriptions() to query active query-based sync subscriptions. This method is in beta and might change in future releases. (#2052)
  • Adds Realm.unsubscribe() to unsubscribe by name an active query-based sync subscription. This method is in beta and might change in future releases. (#2052)
  • Improves the proactive token refresh mechanism to make several attempts to refresh the token before it expires and to also ensure that there is only one ongoing refresh timer for a combination of user and realm path. Previously it was possible to end up in a situation where many redundant refreshes were scheduled for the same Realm. (#2071)
  • A more meaningful exception will be thrown when trying to refresh the access token for a Realm with an invalid url. Previously, trying to connect to a Realm with an url that lacks the path component (e.g. realm://foo.com) would result in errors like Cannot read property ‘token_data’ of undefined. Instead, now we'll print out the Realm url and provide a more meaningful exception message. (#ROS-1310)
  • Adds support for Node 10. Pre-gyp'ed binaries are available for Node 6, 8, and 10. (#1813 and #2087)
  • Building for iOS can now use the n node version manager. Thanks to @SandyChapman! (#2078)

Fixed

  • Fixes the TypeScript definitions for User.login to make it explicit in which cases a promise and in which a User is returned. (#2050, since 2.16.0).
  • Fixes the exception being thrown when using the deprecated User.registerWithProvider API and not providing a value for userInfo. (#2050, since 2.16.0).
  • Fixes the signature of user.logout to return a Promise<void> rather than void. It has always done asynchronous work, but previously, it was impossible to be notified that the call has completed. Since that is now possible, the superfluous User is logged out message printed in the console upon logout has been removed. (#2071, since v2.3.0)
  • Fixes opening query-based Realms with a dynamic schema. Previously the schema would always contain only the types present when the Realm was first added and not any types added later. (#2077, since v2.3.0)

Compatibility

  • Realm Object Server: 3.11.0 or later.
  • APIs are backwards compatible with all previous release of realm in the 2.x.y series.
  • File format: Generates Realms with format v9 (Reads and upgrades all previous formats)

Internal

  • Upgrades to Realm Core v5.12.0.
  • Upgrades to Realm Sync v3.13.1.
  • Updates to package.json and README.md. Thanks to @hyandell.

  • When adding a schema definition (e.g. let config = user.createConfiguration(); config.schema = [Dog, Person]) the permission schema would be removed, resulting in an unknown object type __Permission if using query based Realm. (#2017, since v2.3.0).
  • As part of including the permission schema implicitly when using query based Realm, the schema Realm.Permissions.Realm was missing, which may break any query including it. (#2016, since v2.3.0)
  • Fixed the type definition for Realm.getPrivileges(), Realm.getPrivileges(className) and Realm.getPrivileges(object). (#2030, since v2.2.14)

2.16.0-rc.2 Release notes (2018-9-14)

Breaking changes

  • None.

Enhancements

  • The authentication API has been completely revamped. (#2002)

    • The following methods have been deprecated and will be removed at a next major version:
      • Realm.Sync.User.login
      • Realm.Sync.User.register
      • Realm.Sync.User.authenticate
      • Realm.Sync.User.registerWithProvider
      • Realm.Sync.User.adminUser
    • A new Realm.Sync.User.login method has been added that accepts the server url and a credentials object.
    • A new class - Realm.Sync.Credentials has been added that contains factory methods to create credentials with all supported providers.
    • Here are some examples on how to transform your old code to use the new API:
    Old New
    const user = await Realm.Sync.User.login(serverUrl, 'username', 'password'); const credentials = Realm.Sync.Credentials.usernamePassword('username', 'password');
    const user = await Realm.Sync.User.login(serverUrl, credentials);
    const jwtToken = 'acc3ssT0ken...';
    const user = await Realm.Sync.User.registerWithProvider(serverUrl, 'jwt', jwtToken);
    const jwtToken = 'acc3ssT0ken...';
    const credentials = Realm.Sync.Credentials.jwt(jwtToken);
    const user = await Realm.Sync.User.login(serverUrl, credentials);
    const customToken = 'acc3ssT0ken...';
    const userInfo = { someValue: true };
    const user = await Realm.Sync.User.registerWithProvider(serverUrl, 'custom/fooauth', customToken, userInfo);
    const customToken = 'acc3ssT0ken...';
    const userInfo = { someValue: true };
    const credentials = Realm.Sync.Credentials.custom('custom/fooauth', customToken, userInfo);
    const user = await Realm.Sync.User.login(serverUrl, credentials);
  • Exposed Realm.Sync.User.serialize() to create a persistable representation of a user instance, as well as Realm.Sync.User.deserialize() to later inflate a User instance that can be used to connect to Realm Object Server and open synchronized Realms. (#1276)

  • Added Realm.Sync.Session.pause() and Realm.Sync.Session.resume() to allow controlling when to sync data. (#2014)

  • Added support for LIMIT in queries to restrict the size of the results set. This is in particular useful for query-based synced Realms. An example of the syntax is age >= 20 LIMIT(2). (#2008)

Bug fixes

  • Fixed the type definition for User.authenticate(). (#2000, since v2.2.0)
  • Added Realm.Sync.Subscription.removeAllListeners() to the Subscription proxy class used when debugging a React Native app. (#474, since v2.3.2)
  • Fixed a memory corruption in writeCopyTo() when using encryption. This could be experienced as: Error: Unable to open a realm at path .... Thanks to @mandrigin! (#1748, since v2.3.4)
  • Fixed the type definitions for Session.addConnectionNotification() and Session.removeConnectionNotification(). Thanks to @gabro! (#2003, since v2.15.0)
