v0.19.0

For users of legacy client (tuf.client module) this is purely a security fix release with no API or functionality changes. For ngclient (tuf.ngclient) and Metadata API (tuf.api.metadata), some API changes are included.

All users are advised to upgrade.

Note that python-tuf has required python>=3.5 since release 0.18.0.

Fixed

  • GHSA-wjw6-2cqr-j4qr: Fix client side issue in both legacy client (tuf.client) and ngclient (tuf.ngclient) where a malicious repository could trick client to overwrite files outside the client metadata store during a metadata update. The fix includes percent-encoding the metadata rolename before using it as part of a filename https://github.com/theupdateframework/python-tuf/security/advisories/GHSA-wjw6-2cqr-j4qr
  • ngclient: Do not use urljoin to form metadata URL (included in GHSA-wjw6-2cqr-j4qr)
  • ngclient: Persist metadata safely (#1574)
  • ngclient: Handle timeout on session.get() (#1588)

Added

  • build: Dependabot now monitors GitHub Actions (#1572)
  • tests: ngclient test improvements (#1564, #1569, #1587)

  • ngclient: Remove unnecessary sleep() (#1608)
  • ngclient: Fix consistent targets URL resolution (#1591)
  • ngclient: Don't use target path as local path (#1592)

v0.18.1

Changed

  • Update setup.cfg to not build universal wheels (#1566)

v0.18.0

0.18 is a big release with 3 main themes:

  • Support only Python 3 and modernize the infrastructure accordingly
  • Metadata API (a low-level API for metadata de/serialization and modification) is now feature-complete for the client use cases
  • ngclient (a new high-level client API) was added. ngclient should be considered an unstable API and is not yet recommended for production use.

Additionally the Github project name changed: project is now "python-tuf" instead of "tuf". Redirects are in place for the old name but updating links is advised.
