2019-01-08 v3.6.11 fix security issue in 'rsync' (bundle helper); see commit 5df2b81 for more 2018-09-30 v3.6.10 fix up boo-boo caused by previous release; see mails on list for details 2018-08-07 v3.6.9 prevent racy access to repos in process of migration to gitolite 'info' learns new '-p' option to show only physical repos (as opposed to wild repos) 2018-07-12 v3.6.8 fix bug when deleting *all* hooks for a repo allow trailing slashes in repo names make pre-receive hook driver bail on non-zero exit of a pre-receive hook allow templates in gitolite.conf (new feature) various optimiations 2017-07-02 v3.6.7 allow repo-specific hooks to be organised into subdirectories, and allow the multi-hook driver to be placed in some other location of your choice allow simple test code to be embedded within the gitolite.conf file; see contrib/utils/testconf for how. (This goes on the client side, not on the server) allow syslog "facility" to be changed, from the default of 'local0' allow @group names in config values to be expanded; it is replaced with a space separated list of members 2016-09-08 v3.6.6 simple but important fix for a future perl deprecation (perl will be removing "." from @INC in 5.24) 'perms' now requires a '-c' to activate batch mode (should not affect interactive use but check your scripts perhaps?) gitolite setup now accepts a '-m' option to supply a custom message (useful when it is used by a script) 2016-02-20 v3.6.5 allow creator check to be bypassed during mirroring handle new style ssh fingerprinting correctly (thanks to Robin Johnson) allow pre-auto-gc as a repo-specific hook optimise mirror pushes for heavily used repos create-with-reference trigger: on repo creation, setup objects/info/alternates for a server side alternate object store. 'mirror status all all' prints a list of repos that have *some* error, which is arguably more useful for further action/processing allow incrementally adding more repo-specific hooks 2015-11-01 v3.6.4 a ref-create bug in wild repos was fixed some contrib code related to AD integration, and to redmine user aliases teach Alias.pm a few new tricks remove a race condition in 'create' command that affected the 'default roles' setting make 'who-pushed' more efficient (local push logs, and 'tip search') 'gitolite query-rc' learns '-d' ('--dump') option 2015-04-26 v3.6.3 allow limited use of 'git config' using the new 'config' command accept openssh 6.8's new fingerprint output format (finally!) allow limited symlinks within ~/repositories; see commit 8e36230 for details perms command now lists available roles minor backward compat breakage: 'perms -l repo' no longer works; see 'perms -h' for new usage allow gitolite-shell to be used as $SHELL (experts only; no support, no docs; see commit 9cd1e37 for details) help with 'git push --signed' using a post-receive hook to adopt push certs into 'refs/push-certs'; for details see contrib/hooks/repo-specific/save-push-signatures new 'transparent proxy' feature for git repos; see src/lib/Gitolite/Triggers/TProxy.pm for details 2014-11-10 v3.6.2 disable ../ everywhere (see mailing list thread for details) VREF/NAME_NC -- like VREF/NAME but for new commits only. Details within src/VREF/NAME_NC. allow gitolite.conf to be tested locally; details within contrib/utils/gitolite-local 2014-06-22 v3.6.1 experimental rc format convertor for "<= 3.3" users who have already upgraded the *code* to ">= v3.4". Program is in contrib/utils. giving shell access to a few users got a lot easier (see comments in the rc file). allow logging to syslog as well (see comments in the rc file) new 'motd' command redis caching redone and now in core; see http://gitolite.com/gitolite/cache.html 2014-05-09 v3.6 (cool stuff) the access command can now help you debug your rules / understand how a specific access decision was arrived at. mirroring: since mirroring is asynchronous (by default anyway), when a 'git push --mirror' fails, you may not know it unless you look in the log file on the server. Now gitolite captures the info and -- if the word 'fatal' appears anywhere within it, it saves the entire output and prints it to STDERR for anyone who reads or writes the repo on the *master* server, until the error condition clears up. mirroring: allow 'nosync' slaves -- no attempt to automatically push to these slaves will be made. Instead, you have to manually (or via cron, etc) trigger pushes. (backward compat breakage) the old v2 syntax for specifying gitweb owner and description is no longer supported. macros now allow strings as arguments (thanks to Jason Donenfeld for the idea/problem). the 'info' command can print in JSON format if asked to. repo-specific hooks: now you can specify more than one, and gitolite runs all of them in sequence. new trigger 'expand-deny-messages' to show more details when access is denied. git-annex support is finally in master, yaaay! new 'readme' command, modelled after 'desc'. Apparently gitweb can use a README.html file in the *bare* repo directory -- who knew! 2013-10-14 v3.5.3 catch undefined groupnames (when possible) mirroring: async push to slaves (some portability fixes) (a couple of contrib scripts - querying IPA based LDAP servers for group membership, and user key management) allow groups in subconf files (this *may* slow down compilation in extreme cases) make adding repo-specific hooks easier (see cust.mkd or cust.html online for docs) smart http now supports git 1.8.2 and above (which changed the protocol requirements a wee bit) 2013-07-10 v3.5.2 allow ENV vars to be set from repo options, for use in triggers and hooks bug-fix: the new set-default-roles feature was being invoked on every run of "perms" and overriding it! 2013-03-24 v3.5 (2 minor backward compat breakages) 1. 'DEFAULT_ROLE_PERMS' replaced by per repo 'default.roles' option 2. 'gitolite list-memberships' now requires a '-r' or a '-u' flag new 'gitolite owns' command (thanks to Kevin Pulo) 2013-03-05 v3.4 new rc file format makes it much easier to enable specific features 2012-12-29 v3.3 bug fix: gl-perms propagation to slaves broke sometime after v3.2 (so if you're only picking up tagged releases you're OK) the "D" command now allows rm/unlock to be totally disabled new trigger: update-gitweb-daemon-from-options; another way to update gitweb and daemon access lists new 'create' command for explicit wild repo creation, and new AutoCreate trigger to control auto-creation allow simple macros in conf file 2012-11-14 v3.2 major efficiency boost for large setups optional support for multi-line pubkeys; see src/triggers/post-compile/ssh-authkeys-split bug fix for not creating gl-conf when repo para has only config lines and no access rules new 'bg' trigger command to put long jobs started from a trigger into background %GL_REPO and %GL_CREATOR now work for 'option's also test suite now much more BSD friendly 2012-10-05 v3.1 (security) fix path traversal on wild repos new %GL_CREATOR variable for git-config lines rsync command to create and send bundles automagically migrated 'who-pushed' logical expressions on refexes!!! 2012-06-27 v3.04 documentation graduated and moved out of parents house :) new trigger for 'repo specific umask' new 'list-dangling-repos' command new LOCAL_CODE rc var; allow admin specified programs to override system-installed ones new 'upstream' trigger-cum-command to maintain local copies of external repos new 'sudo' command minor backward compat breakage in 'gitolite query-rc' 'perms' command can now create repo if needed migrated 'symbolic-ref' command 'gitolite setup --hooks-only' 2012-05-23 v3.03 fix major bug that allowed an admin to get a shell 2012-05-20 v3.02 packaging instructions fixed up and smoke tested make it easier to give some users a full shell allow aliasing a repo to another name simulate POST_CREATE for new normal (non-wild) repos (just for kicks) a VREF that allows for voting on changes to a branch bug fix: smart http was not running PRE_ and POST_GIT triggers htpasswd migrated 2012-04-29 v3.01 mostly BSD and Solaris compat also fork command added 2012-04-18 v3.0 first release to "master" This is a compete rewrite of gitolite; please see documentation before upgrading.
