Now, on to the changes!

Breaking Changes (or potentially breaking)

❗ Upgrade to the latest version of golang-jwt and increase minimum go to 1.16 (#16590) (#16606) (#16710)

The minimum version of Go Gitea can be compiled with has been increased to 1.16 as Go 1.14 and Go 1.15 are no longer supported by the go developers.

❗ Changed mapping of :latest on docker #16421

The docker tag logic has changed to map :latest to match the latest tag on the 1.15 branch and :dev to represent the latest build on the main branch. Users who wish to use the development version of Gitea - with all its latest features should switch to use the :dev tag for docker. We would like to encourage at least some users to consider using :dev.

❗ More restrictive app.ini permissions #16266

The default file permissions mode for app.ini has changed to -rw------- when Gitea creates this file.

❗ Webhook Refactors #16176

Webhook payloads have been changed so that the Secret field is no longer passed as part of the payload and the history shows the real URL that was sent in the webhook.

❗ Asymmetric JWT Signing Key #16010

We have added asymmetric JWT signing and Gitea will use an asymmetric keypair for JWT signing by default.

  • Asymmetric algorithms require a secret asymmetric key pair to be in JWT_SIGNING_PRIVATE_KEY_FILE (by default APP_DATA_PATH/jwt), a pair will be generated if it is not present. (NB: this was originally in CUSTOM_PATH but was changed by #16227)
  • The original symmetric JWT_SECRET will only be used if JWT_SIGNING_ALGORITHM is set to HS256 (previous default), HS384 or HS512.
  • As a result of the change of algorithm gitea OAuth2 tokens (and potentially the client secret) will need to be regenerated unless you change your JWT_SIGNING_ALGORITHM back to HS256.
  • Legacy installations of Drone assume a short key length, however as no automated migrations are run by Drone you’ll need to do them manually if the column type for user_oauth_token and user_oauth_refresh are limited to 500 characters.
-- an example manual migration for Drone database connected to postgresql
alter table users alter column user_oauth_token type bytea using convert_to(user_oauth_token, 'LATIN1');
alter table users alter column user_oauth_refresh type bytea using convert_to(user_oauth_refresh, 'LATIN1');

❗ Clean-up the settings hierarchy for issue_indexer queue #16001

We have changed the priority of settings below:

  • [queue.issue_indexer] TYPE now overrides [indexers] ISSUE_INDEXER_QUEUE_TYPE
  • [queue.issue_indexer] DATADIR overrides [indexers] ISSUE_INDEXER_QUEUE_DIR
  • [queue.issue_indexer] CONN_STR overrides [indexers] ISSUE_INDEXER_QUEUE_CONN_STR
  • [queue.issue_indexer] BATCH_LENGTH overrides [indexers] ISSUE_INDEXER_QUEUE_BATCH_NUMBER
  • [queue.issue_indexer] LENGTH overrides [indexers] UPDATE_BUFFER_LEN

It is not expected that many people will experience effects from this change.

❗ Change default queue settings to be low go-routines #15964

We have changed the default configuration for queues to make them low goroutines by default:

  • As a result of this PR instead of each queue having their own level db by default, the queues will use a common level db. It is recommended to ensure that queues are empty before upgrading using gitea manager flush-queues or on the admin pages.
  • Starting workers are now 0 with boost workers at 1. If you have explicitly set BOOST_WORKERS = 0 you will need to explicitly set WORKERS to at least 1. Administrators of busy sites should tune their WORKERS, BOOST_WORKERS, & DATADIR parameters as needed.

❗ Merged assets handler middleware #15961

This PR merges two assets handler middleware as one and move it before session middleware to reduce unnecessary memory usage. The additional support for CORS on assets may cause some breakage for sites using CDN assets. Administrators should change [cors] section in the app.ini to add the domains if enabled.

❗ Rename StaticUrlPrefix to AssetUrlPrefix #15779

This PR renames the template variable StaticUrlPrefix to AssetUrlPrefix. Administrators with Custom templates that use the StaticUrlPrefix will need update these to use AssetUrlPrefix.

❗ Use markup class for rendering External markup #15735

This PR essentially changes the markdown css class to markup. Administrators with css/less customization targeting the .markdown class should update these to use .markup.

❗ Update Node to v12 #15315

This PR increases the minimum required node version for compiling the frontend to v12.

❗ Add /assets as root dir of public files #15219

This PR moves root directory of public files from / to /assets.

All pages and resources rendered from custom/public will now be rendered at /assets instead of /. This means that if you have a impressum.html - you need to update links to this to /assets/impressum.html. Similarly for users of STL renderers and external markup renderers.

Administrators should check custom templates to ensure that these are correct.

If you have previously placed robots.txt within custom/public you must move it to custom instead.

❗ Inherit log level in sub log section #15176

Sub loggers will inherit their log level from the main log level - previously these would default to info. Administrators should check their log configuration.

This PR changes the rendering of links in markdown to make them absolute to the current repository in keeping with Github. This may change rendering of some pages however, the previous behaviour was not compatible with Github so was a bug.

Major Features

OAuth2 auto-register (#5123)

auto-registration for OAuth2 users

Thanks to @mgjm

GPG Key Ownership verification with Signed Token (#14054)

Prior to this PR, Gitea would only allow a key to be added to a user if one (or more) of the key’s identities match an activated email address for that user. Gitea will then only verify commits if the committer email address matches an activated email address in the key. This PR provides a slightly different mechanism: if the user provides a signature for automatically generated token the key will be marked as verified. Following verification of ownership of a key, commits signed by this key where the committer email address matches an activated email address for the user will be verified.

Further, the identities that a key will match are now shown on the GPG key page. These are the identities that are present in the key and were activated for the user at the time of addition of the key to the user.

Thanks to @zeripath for this feature.

Add LFS Migration and Mirror (#14726)
