    Synapse 1.39.0rc1 (2021-07-20)
    ==============================
    
    The Third-Party Event Rules module interface has been deprecated in favour of the generic module interface introduced in Synapse v1.37.0. Support for the old interface is planned to be removed in September 2021. See the [upgrade notes](https://matrix-org.github.io/synapse/latest/upgrade.html#upgrading-to-v1390) for more information.
    
    Features
    --------
    
    - Add the ability to override the account validity feature with a module. ([\#9884](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/9884))
    - The spaces summary API now returns any joinable rooms, not only rooms which are world-readable. ([\#10298](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/10298), [\#10305](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/10305))
    - Add a new version of the R30 phone-home metric, which removes a false impression of retention given by the old R30 metric. ([\#10332](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/10332), [\#10427](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/10427))

    - Fix PostgreSQL sometimes using table scans for queries against `state_groups_state` table, taking a long time and a large amount of IO. ([\#10359](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/10359))
    - Fix `make_room_admin` failing for users that have left a private room. ([\#10367](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/10367))
    - Fix a number of logged errors caused by remote servers being down. ([\#10400](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/10400), [\#10414](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/10414))

    Synapse 1.37.1 (2021-06-30)
    ===========================
    
    This release resolves issues (such as [#9490](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/9490)) where one busy room could cause head-of-line blocking, starving Synapse from processing events in other rooms, and causing all federated traffic to fall behind. Synapse 1.37.1 processes inbound federation traffic asynchronously, ensuring that one busy room won't impact others. Please upgrade to Synapse 1.37.1 as soon as possible, in order to increase resilience to other traffic spikes.
    
    No significant changes since v1.37.1rc1.

    Synapse 1.37.0 (2021-06-29)
    ===========================
    
    This release deprecates the current spam checker interface. See the [upgrade notes](https://matrix-org.github.io/synapse/develop/upgrade#deprecation-of-the-current-spam-checker-interface) for more information on how to update to the new generic module interface.
    
    This release also removes support for fetching and renewing TLS certificates using the ACME v1 protocol, which has been fully decommissioned by Let's Encrypt on June 1st 2021. Admins previously using this feature should use a [reverse proxy](https://matrix-org.github.io/synapse/develop/reverse_proxy.html) to handle TLS termination, or use an external ACME client (such as [certbot](https://certbot.eff.org/)) to retrieve a certificate and key and provide them to Synapse using the `tls_certificate_path` and `tls_private_key_path` configuration settings.

    Synapse 1.35.1 (2021-06-03)
    ===========================
    
    Bugfixes
    --------
    
    - Fix a bug introduced in v1.35.0 where invite-only rooms would be shown to all users in a space, regardless of if the user had access to it. ([\#10109](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/10109))
    
  • v1.35.0
    Synapse 1.35.0 (2021-06-01)
    ===========================
    
    Note that [the tag](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/releases/tag/v1.35.0rc3) and [docker images](https://hub.docker.com/layers/matrixdotorg/synapse/v1.35.0rc3/images/sha256-34ccc87bd99a17e2cbc0902e678b5937d16bdc1991ead097eee6096481ecf2c4?context=explore) for `v1.35.0rc3` were incorrectly built. If you are experiencing issues with either, it is recommended to upgrade to the equivalent tag or docker image for the `v1.35.0` release.
    
    Deprecations and Removals
    -------------------------
    
    - The core Synapse development team plan to drop support for the [unstable API of MSC2858](https://github.com/matrix-org/matrix-doc/blob/master/proposals/2858-Multiple-SSO-Identity-Providers.md#unstable-prefix), including the undocumented `experimental.msc2858_enabled` config option, in August 2021. Client authors should ensure that their clients are updated to use the stable API (which has been supported since Synapse 1.30) well before that time, to give their users time to upgrade. ([\#10101](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/10101))

    Synapse 1.34.0 (2021-05-17)
    ===========================
    
    This release deprecates the `room_invite_state_types` configuration setting. See the [upgrade notes](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/blob/release-v1.34.0/UPGRADE.rst#upgrading-to-v1340) for instructions on updating your configuration file to use the new `room_prejoin_state` setting.
    
    This release also deprecates the `POST /_synapse/admin/v1/rooms/<room_id>/delete` admin API route. Server administrators are encouraged to update their scripts to use the new `DELETE /_synapse/admin/v1/rooms/<room_id>` route instead.
    
    No significant changes since v1.34.0rc1.
    
    Synapse 1.34.0rc1 (2021-05-12)
    ==============================
    
    Features
    --------
    
    - Add experimental option to track memory usage of the caches. ([\#9881](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/9881))
    - Add support for `DELETE /_synapse/admin/v1/rooms/<room_id>`. ([\#9889](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/9889))
    - Add limits to how often Synapse will GC, ensuring that large servers do not end up GC thrashing if `gc_thresholds` has not been correctly set. ([\#9902](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/9902))
    - Improve performance of sending events for worker-based deployments using Redis. ([\#9905](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/9905), [\#9950](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/9950), [\#9951](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/9951))
    - Improve performance after joining a large room when presence is enabled. ([\#9910](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/9910), [\#9916](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/9916))
    - Support stable identifiers for [MSC1772](https://github.com/matrix-org/matrix-doc/pull/1772) Spaces. `m.space.child` events will now be taken into account when populating the experimental spaces summary response. Please see [the upgrade notes](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/blob/release-v1.34.0/UPGRADE.rst#upgrading-to-v1340) if you have customised `room_invite_state_types` in your configuration. ([\#9915](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/9915), [\#9966](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/9966))
    - Improve performance of backfilling in large rooms. ([\#9935](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/9935))
    - Add a config option to allow you to prevent device display names from being shared over federation. Contributed by @aaronraimist. ([\#9945](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/9945))
    - Update support for [MSC2946](https://github.com/matrix-org/matrix-doc/pull/2946): Spaces Summary. ([\#9947](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/9947), [\#9954](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/9954))

    - Fix bugs introduced in v1.23.0 which made the PostgreSQL port script fail when run with a newly-created SQLite database. ([\#9930](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/9930))
    - Fix a bug introduced in Synapse 1.29.0 which caused `m.room_key_request` to-device messages sent from one user to another to be dropped. ([\#9961](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/9961), [\#9965](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/9965))
    - Fix a bug introduced in v1.27.0 preventing users and appservices exempt from ratelimiting from creating rooms with many invitees. ([\#9968](https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/9968))
