This is a release candidate for the v1.4.0 minor release.
- #4774: Doesn't react to Ctrl-C when run in a subshell with -no-restart (Linux)
- #5952: panic: Should never get a deleted file as needed when we don't have it
- #6281: Progress emitter uses 100% CPU
- #6289: "general SOCKS server failure" since syncthing 1.3.3
- #6300: lib/ignore: panic: runtime error: index out of range  with length 0
- #5786: Consider always running the monitor process
- #5898: Database performance: reduce duplication
- #5914: Limit folder concurrency to improve performance
- #6302: Avoid thundering herd issue by global request limiter
- A new config option maxConcurrentIncomingRequestKiB has been added to
limit the maximum amount of request data being concurrently processed due
to incoming requests. This limits Syncthing's peak RAM usage when there
are many connected devices all requesting file data. The default is 256
- The config option maxConcurrentScans has been removed and replaced a new
config option maxFolderConcurrency. In addition to just limiting
concurrent scans it now also limits concurrent sync operations. The
default is the number of available CPU threads ("GOMAXPROCS").
- Syncthing now always runs the monitor process, which previously was
disabled with -no-restart. This facilitates crash reporting and makes
logging behave more consistently. The observed behavior with -no-restart
should be the same as before but the internals differ.
- The database schema has been improved and will result in a migration plus
compaction at first startup after the upgrade.
