  • v0.10.0-rc3 Changes

    August 25, 2015
    • Add --keys-directory config option to specify where files such as certs and signing keys should be stored in, when using --generate-config or --generate-keys. (PR #250)
    • Allow --config-path to specify a directory, causing synapse to use all *.yaml files in the directory as config files. (PR #249)
    • Add web_client_location config option to specify static files to be hosted by synapse under /_matrix/client. (PR #245)
    • ๐Ÿ“œ Add helper utility to synapse to read and parse the config files and extract the value of a given key. For example:

      $ python -m synapse.config read server_name -c homeserver.yaml

      (PR #246)

  • v0.10.0-rc2 Changes

    August 24, 2015
    • Fix bug where we incorrectly populated the event_forward_extremities table, resulting in problems joining large remote rooms (e.g.
    • Reduce the number of times we wake up pushers by not listening for presence or typing events, reducing the CPU cost of each pusher.
  • v0.10.0-rc1 Changes
