  • Pink flags are now colored correctly.
  • Differential now supports a unified diff view and defaults to it on narrow screens. This should make code review from phones somewhat less painful. If you prefer unified diffs even on wide screens, you can make them the default in your settings.
  • Differential inline comments have been redesigned.
  • Inline comments now have a "Done" checkbox. This feature is still under development; see T1460 for discussion.

Upgrading and Compatibility

  • If you're running MySQL older than 5.5, you may have to perform a handful of storage adjustments. Strongly consider upgrading to 5.5 or newer.
  • File storage engines have received some changes. In most cases, installs should not be meaningfully impacted. You may want to review the documentation, which has been updated. Broadly, these changes add support for arbitrarily large files.
  • Removed support for Balanced payments. Balanced is shutting down and recommends customers migrate to Stripe.


  • The granularity available for controlling outbound HTTP requests has been increased, and the default settings no longer permit connections to hosts in reserved IP blocks. This is primarily a response to learning that EC2 deploys a link-local HTTP service which may expose credentials and other sensitive information over HTTP. This issue was reported to us via HackerOne and we awarded a $300 bounty for it.
  • We fixed a self-XSS hole with date display formats. This issue was reported to us via HackerOne and we awarded a $300 bounty for it.
  • Mercurial has a command execution issue which is fixed in 3.2.4. We've mitigated it, but users are strongly encouraged to upgrade Mercurial.
  • We received 6 other reports in this period, but none described qualifying vulnerabilities.


  • arc upload will now perform chunked uploads for large files if the server supports it.


  • Non-users can no longer be added to Conpherence threads via the API.
  • Conpherence threads now use the "Z" monogram.

  • Revisions which have missing legal agreements no longer show changes to reviewers until agreements are signed.

  • Repositories created through the API now set "importing" correctly.
  • Nonpublishing repositories no longer activate object mentions.
  • Repositories can now be ordered by commit count.
  • Codebase search results are no longer syntax highlighted. In many cases, this is a huge performance improvement.
  • Fixed an issue where Mercurial repositories emitted a warning about TERM.
  • Fixed an issue with moving or copying directories in hosted SVN repositories.


  • Added a chunk storage engine to support very large files.
  • Added a bin/files cat command to view and download files from the CLI.
