    Synapse 1.49.2 (2021-12-21)
    ===========================
    
    This release fixes a regression introduced in Synapse 1.49.0 which could cause `/sync` requests to take significantly longer. This would particularly affect "initial" syncs for users participating in a large number of rooms, and in extreme cases, could make it impossible for such users to log in on a new client.
    
    **Note:** in line with our [deprecation policy](https://matrix-org.github.io/synapse/latest/deprecation_policy.html) for platform dependencies, this will be the last release to support Python 3.6 and PostgreSQL 9.6, both of which have now reached upstream end-of-life. Synapse will require Python 3.7+ and PostgreSQL 10+.
    
    **Note:** We will also stop producing packages for Ubuntu 18.04 (Bionic Beaver) after this release, as it uses Python 3.6.
    
    Bugfixes
    --------
    
    - Fix a performance regression in `/sync` handling, introduced in 1.49.0. ([\#11583](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/11583))
    
    Internal Changes
    ----------------
    
    - Work around a build problem on Debian Buster. ([\#11625](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/11625))

    Synapse 1.49.0 (2021-12-14)
    ===========================
    
    No significant changes since version 1.49.0rc1.
    
    Support for Ubuntu 21.04 ends next month on the 20th of January
    ---------------------------------------------------------------
    
    For users of Ubuntu 21.04 (Hirsute Hippo), please be aware that [upstream support for this version of Ubuntu will end next month][Ubuntu2104EOL].
    We will stop producing packages for Ubuntu 21.04 after upstream support ends.
    
    [Ubuntu2104EOL]: https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-announce/2021-December/000275.html
    
    The wiki has been migrated to the documentation website
    -------------------------------------------------------
    
    We've decided to move the existing, somewhat stagnant pages from the GitHub wiki
    to the [documentation website](https://matrix-org.github.io/synapse/latest/).
    
    This was done for two reasons. The first was to ensure that changes are checked by
    multiple authors before being committed (everyone makes mistakes!) and the second
    was visibility of the documentation. Not everyone knows that Synapse has some very
    useful information hidden away in its GitHub wiki pages. Bringing them to the
    documentation website should help with visibility, as well as keep all Synapse documentation
    in one, easily-searchable location.
    
    Note that contributions to the documentation website happen through [GitHub pull
    requests](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/pulls). Please visit [#synapse-dev:matrix.org](https://matrix.to/#/#synapse-dev:matrix.org)
    if you need help with the process!

    Updates to the Docker image
    ---------------------------

  • v1.49.0rc1
    Synapse 1.49.0rc1 (2021-12-07)
    ==============================
    
    We've decided to move the existing, somewhat stagnant pages from the GitHub wiki
    to the [documentation website](https://matrix-org.github.io/synapse/latest/).
    
    This was done for two reasons. The first was to ensure that changes are checked by
    multiple authors before being committed (everyone makes mistakes!) and the second
    was visibility of the documentation. Not everyone knows that Synapse has some very
    useful information hidden away in its GitHub wiki pages. Bringing them to the
    documentation website should help with visibility, as well as keep all Synapse documentation
    in one, easily-searchable location.
    
    Note that contributions to the documentation website happen through [GitHub pull
    requests](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/pulls). Please visit [#synapse-dev:matrix.org](https://matrix.to/#/#synapse-dev:matrix.org)
    if you need help with the process!

    Synapse 1.47.1 (2021-11-23)
    ===========================
    
    This release fixes a security issue in the media store, affecting all prior releases of Synapse. Server administrators are encouraged to update Synapse as soon as possible. We are not aware of these vulnerabilities being exploited in the wild.
    
    Server administrators who are unable to update Synapse may use the workarounds described in the linked GitHub Security Advisory below.
    
    Security advisory
    -----------------
    
    The following issue is fixed in 1.47.1.
    
    - **[GHSA-3hfw-x7gx-437c](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/security/advisories/GHSA-3hfw-x7gx-437c) / [CVE-2021-41281](https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2021-41281): Path traversal when downloading remote media.**
    
      Synapse instances with the media repository enabled can be tricked into downloading a file from a remote server into an arbitrary directory, potentially outside the media store directory.
    
      The last two directories and file name of the path are chosen randomly by Synapse and cannot be controlled by an attacker, which limits the impact.
    
      Homeservers with the media repository disabled are unaffected. Homeservers configured with a federation whitelist are also unaffected.
    
      Fixed by [91f2bd090](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/commit/91f2bd090).

    - Newly-created public rooms are now only assigned an alias if the room's creation has not been blocked by permission settings. Contributed by @AndrewFerr. ([\#10930](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/10930))
    - Fix a long-standing bug which meant that events received over federation were sometimes incorrectly accepted into the room state.

    Synapse 1.45.0rc1 (2021-10-12)
    ==============================
    
    **Note:** We are aware of [a performance issue](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/11049) introduced in Synapse v1.44.0, as well as [a bug](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/11025) with the user directory when using application services. While this release candidate doesn't fix either of those issues, a second release candidate is expected to come out in a few days to address them.
    
    Media storage providers module that read from Synapse's configuration need changes as of this version, see the [upgrade notes](https://matrix-org.github.io/synapse/develop/upgrade#upgrading-to-v1450) for more information.
