    --------
    
    - Only allow the [MSC2716](https://github.com/matrix-org/matrix-doc/pull/2716) `/batch_send?chunk_id=xxx` endpoint to connect to an already existing insertion event. ([\#10776](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/10776))
    - Improve oEmbed URL previews by processing the author name, photo, and video information. ([\#10814](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/10814), [\#10819](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/10819))
    - Speed up responding with large JSON objects to requests. ([\#10868](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/10868), [\#10905](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/10905))
    - Add a `user_may_create_room_with_invites` spam checker callback to allow modules to allow or deny a room creation request based on the invites and/or 3PID invites it includes. ([\#10898](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/10898))
    
    Bugfixes
    --------

    Synapse 1.41.1 (2021-08-31)
    ===========================
    
    Due to the two security issues highlighted below, server administrators are encouraged to update Synapse. We are not aware of these vulnerabilities being exploited in the wild.
    
    Security advisory
    -----------------
    
    The following issues are fixed in v1.41.1.
    
    - **[GHSA-3x4c-pq33-4w3q](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/security/advisories/GHSA-3x4c-pq33-4w3q) / [CVE-2021-39164](https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2021-39164): Enumerating a private room's list of members and their display names.**
    
      If an unauthorized user both knows the Room ID of a private room *and* that room's history visibility is set to `shared`, then they may be able to enumerate the room's members, including their display names.
    
      The unauthorized user must be on the same homeserver as a user who is a member of the target room.
    
      Fixed by [52c7a51cf](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/commit/52c7a51cf).
    
    - **[GHSA-jj53-8fmw-f2w2](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/security/advisories/GHSA-jj53-8fmw-f2w2) / [CVE-2021-39163](https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2021-39163): Disclosing a private room's name, avatar, topic, and number of members.**
    
      If an unauthorized user knows the Room ID of a private room, then its name, avatar, topic, and number of members may be disclosed through Group / Community features.
    
      The unauthorized user must be on the same homeserver as a user who is a member of the target room, and their homeserver must allow non-administrators to create groups (`enable_group_creation` in the Synapse configuration; off by default).
    
      Fixed by [cb35df940a](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/commit/cb35df940a), [\#10723](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/10723).
    
    Bugfixes
    --------
    
    - Fix a regression introduced in Synapse 1.41 which broke email transmission on systems using older versions of the Twisted library. ([\#10713](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/10713))
  • v1.41.0
    f03cafb5 · Update changelog ·
    Synapse 1.41.0 (2021-08-24)
    ===========================
    
    This release adds support for Debian 12 (Bookworm), but **removes support for Ubuntu 20.10 (Groovy Gorilla)**, which reached End of Life last month.
    
    Note that when using workers the `/_synapse/admin/v1/users/{userId}/media` must now be handled by media workers. See the [upgrade notes](https://matrix-org.github.io/synapse/latest/upgrade.html) for more information.
    
    Features
    --------
    
    - Enable room capabilities ([MSC3244](https://github.com/matrix-org/matrix-doc/pull/3244)) by default and set room version 8 as the preferred room version when creating restricted rooms. ([\#10571](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/10571))
