    Synapse 1.56.0 (2022-04-05)
    ===========================
    
    Synapse will now refuse to start up if open registration is enabled, in order to help mitigate
    abuse across the federation. If you would like
    to provide registration to anyone, consider adding [email](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/blob/8a519f8abc6de772167c2cca101d22ee2052fafc/docs/sample_config.yaml#L1285),
    [recaptcha](https://matrix-org.github.io/synapse/v1.56/CAPTCHA_SETUP.html)
    or [token-based](https://matrix-org.github.io/synapse/v1.56/usage/administration/admin_api/registration_tokens.html) verification
    in order to prevent automated registration from bad actors.
    This check can be disabled by setting the `enable_registration_without_verification` option in your
    homeserver configuration file to `true`. More details are available in the
    [upgrade notes](https://matrix-org.github.io/synapse/v1.56/upgrade.html#open-registration-without-verification-is-now-disabled-by-default).
    
    Synapse will additionally now refuse to start when using PostgreSQL with a non-`C` values for `COLLATE` and `CTYPE`, unless
    the config flag `allow_unsafe_locale`, found in the database section of the configuration file, is set to `true`. See the
    [upgrade notes](https://matrix-org.github.io/synapse/v1.56/upgrade#change-in-behaviour-for-postgresql-databases-with-unsafe-locale)
    for details.

    Synapse 1.55.2 (2022-03-24)
    ===========================
    
    This patch version reverts the earlier fixes from Synapse 1.55.1, which could cause problems in certain deployments, and instead adds a cap to the version of Jinja to be installed. Again, this is to fix an incompatibility with version 3.1.0 of the [Jinja](https://pypi.org/project/Jinja2/) library, and again, deployments of Synapse using the `matrixdotorg/synapse` Docker image or Debian packages from packages.matrix.org are not affected.
    
    Internal Changes
    ----------------
    
    - Pin Jinja to <3.1.0, as Synapse fails to start with Jinja 3.1.0. ([\#12297](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/12297))
    - Revert changes from 1.55.1 as they caused problems with older versions of Jinja ([\#12296](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/12296))
    
  • v1.55.1
    Synapse 1.55.1 (2022-03-24)
    ===========================
    
    This is a patch release that fixes an incompatibility with version 3.1.0 of the [Jinja](https://pypi.org/project/Jinja2/) library, released on March 24th, 2022. Deployments of Synapse using the `matrixdotorg/synapse` Docker image or Debian packages from packages.matrix.org are not affected.
    
    Internal Changes
    ----------------
    
    - Remove uses of the long-deprecated `jinja2.Markup` which would prevent Synapse from starting with Jinja 3.1.0 or above installed. ([\#12289](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/12289))
    
  • v1.55.0
    Synapse 1.55.0 (2022-03-22)
    ===========================
    
    This release removes a workaround introduced in Synapse 1.50.0 for Mjolnir compatibility. **This breaks compatibility with Mjolnir 1.3.1 and earlier. ([\#11700](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/11700))**; Mjolnir users should upgrade Mjolnir before upgrading Synapse to this version.
    
    This release also moves the location of the `synctl` script; see the [upgrade notes](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/blob/develop/docs/upgrade.md#synctl-script-has-been-moved) for more details.
    
    Internal Changes
    ----------------
    
    - Tweak copy for default Single Sign-On account details template to better adhere to mobile app store guidelines. ([\#12265](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/12265), [\#12260](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/12260))

    Synapse 1.54.0rc1 (2022-03-02)
    ==============================
    
    Features
    --------
    
    - Add support for [MSC3202](https://github.com/matrix-org/matrix-doc/pull/3202): sending one-time key counts and fallback key usage states to Application Services. ([\#11617](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/11617))
    - Improve the generated URL previews for some web pages. Contributed by @AndrewRyanChama. ([\#11985](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/11985))
    - Track cache invalidations in Prometheus metrics, as already happens for cache eviction based on size or time. ([\#12000](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/12000))
    - Implement experimental support for [MSC3720](https://github.com/matrix-org/matrix-doc/pull/3720) (account status endpoints). ([\#12001](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/12001), [\#12067](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/12067))

    - Use room version 9 as the default room version (per [MSC3589](https://github.com/matrix-org/matrix-doc/pull/3589)). ([\#12058](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/12058))
    - Add module callbacks to react to user deactivation status changes (i.e. deactivations and reactivations) and profile updates. ([\#12062](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/12062))
    
    Bugfixes
    --------
    
    - Fix a bug introduced in Synapse 1.48.0 where an edit of the latest event in a thread would not be properly applied to the thread summary. ([\#11992](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/11992))
    - Fix long-standing bug where the `get_rooms_for_user` cache was not correctly invalidated for remote users when the server left a room. ([\#11999](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/11999))
    - Fix a 500 error with Postgres when looking backwards with the [MSC3030](https://github.com/matrix-org/matrix-doc/pull/3030) `/timestamp_to_event?dir=b` endpoint. ([\#12024](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/12024))
    - Properly fix a long-standing bug where wrong data could be inserted into the `event_search` table when using SQLite. This could block running `synapse_port_db` with an `argument of type 'int' is not iterable` error. This bug was partially fixed by a change in Synapse 1.44.0. ([\#12037](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/12037))
    - Fix slow performance of `/logout` in some cases where refresh tokens are in use. The slowness existed since the initial implementation of refresh tokens in version 1.38.0. ([\#12056](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/12056))
    - Fix a long-standing bug where Synapse would make additional failing requests over federation for missing data. ([\#12077](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/12077))
    - Fix occasional `Unhandled error in Deferred` error message. ([\#12089](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/12089))
    - Fix a bug introduced in Synapse 1.51.0 where incoming federation transactions containing at least one EDU would be dropped if debug logging was enabled for `synapse.8631_debug`. ([\#12098](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/12098))
    - Fix a long-standing bug which could cause push notifications to malfunction if `use_frozen_dicts` was set in the configuration. ([\#12100](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/12100))
    - Fix an extremely rare, long-standing bug in `ReadWriteLock` that would cause an error when a newly unblocked writer completes instantly. ([\#12105](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/12105))
    - Make a `POST` to `/rooms/<room_id>/receipt/m.read/<event_id>` only trigger a push notification if the count of unread messages is different to the one in the last successfully sent push. This reduces server load and load on the receiving device. ([\#11835](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/11835))
    
    Updates to the Docker image
    ---------------------------
    
    - The Docker image no longer automatically creates a temporary volume at `/data`. This is not expected to affect normal usage. ([\#11997](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/11997))
    - Use Python 3.9 in Docker images by default. ([\#12112](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/12112))
    
    Improved Documentation
    ----------------------
    
    - Document support for the `to_device`, `account_data`, `receipts`, and `presence` stream writers for workers. ([\#11599](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/11599))
    - Explain the meaning of spam checker callbacks' return values. ([\#12003](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/12003))
    - Clarify information about external Identity Provider IDs. ([\#12004](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/12004))
    
    Deprecations and Removals
    -------------------------
    
    - Deprecate using `synctl` with the config option `synctl_cache_factor` and print a warning if a user still uses this option. ([\#11865](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/11865))
    - Remove support for the legacy structured logging configuration (please see the the [upgrade notes](https://matrix-org.github.io/synapse/develop/upgrade#legacy-structured-logging-configuration-removal) if you are using `structured: true` in the Synapse configuration). ([\#12008](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/12008))
    - Drop support for [MSC3283](https://github.com/matrix-org/matrix-doc/pull/3283) unstable flags now that the stable flags are supported. ([\#12018](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/12018))
    - Remove the unstable `/spaces` endpoint from [MSC2946](https://github.com/matrix-org/matrix-doc/pull/2946). ([\#12073](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/12073))
    
    Internal Changes
    ----------------
    
    - Make the `get_room_version` method use `get_room_version_id` to benefit from caching. ([\#11808](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/11808))
    - Remove unnecessary condition on knock -> leave auth rule check. ([\#11900](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/11900))

    Please note that this will be the last release of Synapse that is compatible with Mjolnir 1.3.1 and earlier.
    Administrators of servers which have the Mjolnir module installed are advised to upgrade Mjolnir to version 1.3.2 or later.
    
    Features
    --------
    
    - Add support for [MSC3202](https://github.com/matrix-org/matrix-doc/pull/3202): sending one-time key counts and fallback key usage states to Application Services. ([\#11617](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/11617))
    - Improve the generated URL previews for some web pages. Contributed by @AndrewRyanChama. ([\#11985](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/11985))
    - Track cache invalidations in Prometheus metrics, as already happens for cache eviction based on size or time. ([\#12000](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/12000))
    - Implement experimental support for [MSC3720](https://github.com/matrix-org/matrix-doc/pull/3720) (account status endpoints). ([\#12001](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/12001), [\#12067](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/12067))
    - Enable modules to set a custom display name when registering a user. ([\#12009](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/12009))
    - Advertise Matrix 1.1 and 1.2 support on `/_matrix/client/versions`. ([\#12020](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/12020), ([\#12022](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/12022))
    - Support only the stable identifier for [MSC3069](https://github.com/matrix-org/matrix-doc/pull/3069)'s `is_guest` on `/_matrix/client/v3/account/whoami`. ([\#12021](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/12021))
    - Use room version 9 as the default room version (per [MSC3589](https://github.com/matrix-org/matrix-doc/pull/3589)). ([\#12058](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/12058))
    - Add module callbacks to react to user deactivation status changes (i.e. deactivations and reactivations) and profile updates. ([\#12062](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/12062))
    
    Bugfixes
    --------
    
    - Fix a bug introduced in Synapse 1.48.0 where an edit of the latest event in a thread would not be properly applied to the thread summary. ([\#11992](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/11992))
    - Fix long-standing bug where the `get_rooms_for_user` cache was not correctly invalidated for remote users when the server left a room. ([\#11999](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/11999))
    - Fix a 500 error with Postgres when looking backwards with the [MSC3030](https://github.com/matrix-org/matrix-doc/pull/3030) `/timestamp_to_event?dir=b` endpoint. ([\#12024](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/12024))
    - Properly fix a long-standing bug where wrong data could be inserted into the `event_search` table when using SQLite. This could block running `synapse_port_db` with an `argument of type 'int' is not iterable` error. This bug was partially fixed by a change in Synapse 1.44.0. ([\#12037](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/12037))
    - Fix slow performance of `/logout` in some cases where refresh tokens are in use. The slowness existed since the initial implementation of refresh tokens in version 1.38.0. ([\#12056](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/12056))
    - Fix a long-standing bug where Synapse would make additional failing requests over federation for missing data. ([\#12077](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/12077))
    - Fix occasional `Unhandled error in Deferred` error message. ([\#12089](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/12089))
    - Fix a bug introduced in Synapse 1.51.0 where incoming federation transactions containing at least one EDU would be dropped if debug logging was enabled for `synapse.8631_debug`. ([\#12098](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/12098))
    - Fix a long-standing bug which could cause push notifications to malfunction if `use_frozen_dicts` was set in the configuration. ([\#12100](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/12100))
    - Fix an extremely rare, long-standing bug in `ReadWriteLock` that would cause an error when a newly unblocked writer completes instantly. ([\#12105](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/12105))
    - Make a `POST` to `/rooms/<room_id>/receipt/m.read/<event_id>` only trigger a push notification if the count of unread messages is different to the one in the last successfully sent push. This reduces server load and load on the receiving device. ([\#11835](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/11835))
    
    Updates to the Docker image
    ---------------------------
    
    - The Docker image no longer automatically creates a temporary volume at `/data`. This is not expected to affect normal usage. ([\#11997](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/11997))
    - Use Python 3.9 in Docker images by default. ([\#12112](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/12112))
    
    Improved Documentation
    ----------------------
    
    - Document support for the `to_device`, `account_data`, `receipts`, and `presence` stream writers for workers. ([\#11599](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/11599))
    - Explain the meaning of spam checker callbacks' return values. ([\#12003](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/12003))
    - Clarify information about external Identity Provider IDs. ([\#12004](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/12004))
    
    Deprecations and Removals
    -------------------------
    
    - Deprecate using `synctl` with the config option `synctl_cache_factor` and print a warning if a user still uses this option. ([\#11865](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/11865))
    - Remove support for the legacy structured logging configuration (please see the the [upgrade notes](https://matrix-org.github.io/synapse/develop/upgrade#legacy-structured-logging-configuration-removal) if you are using `structured: true` in the Synapse configuration). ([\#12008](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/12008))
    - Drop support for [MSC3283](https://github.com/matrix-org/matrix-doc/pull/3283) unstable flags now that the stable flags are supported. ([\#12018](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/12018))
    - Remove the unstable `/spaces` endpoint from [MSC2946](https://github.com/matrix-org/matrix-doc/pull/2946). ([\#12073](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/12073))

  • v1.52.0
    Synapse 1.52.0 (2022-02-08)
    ===========================
    
    No significant changes since 1.52.0rc1.
    
    During the making of this release, the developers of Twisted have released
    [Twisted 22.1.0](https://github.com/twisted/twisted/releases/tag/twisted-22.1.0), which
    fixes [a security issue](https://github.com/twisted/twisted/security/advisories/GHSA-92x2-jw7w-xvvx)
    within Twisted. We do not believe Synapse to be vulnerable to any security problem caused
    by this issue, though we advise server administrators to update their local version of
    Twisted if they can.
