  • These changes were promoted to stable.

General

  • The Badges application is no longer a prototype. This application allows you to create badges and award them to users in recognition of groundbreaking achievements.
  • Reviewers in Differential have moved to dedicated storage. This involves a migration which may require significant downtime (106 seconds on this install, with 17,500 revisions).
  • Resigning from a revision now removes it from your action dashboard.
  • Users can now resign from revisions if a package or project they are a member of is a reviewer, even if they are not themselves a reviewer.
  • When accepting a revision, users can now choose to accept on behalf of a subset of user, package, and project reviewers they have authority over.

Security

  • No notes in this period.

Upgrading / Compatibility

  • This period includes an expensive migration. See notes in "General".

Phacility SAAS

  • Free instances are now subject to automatic suspension after prolonged periods of inactivity.

Daemons

  • The PullLocal daemon now hibernates.
  • The Taskmaster daemon now hibernates.
  • Daemon modules may now awaken hibernating daemons.
  • Many minor daemon behaviors have been improved.
  • Overseers now setsid() after daemonizing, so they should no longer catch stray signals from controlling processes in unusual conditions.
  • Daemons now have a navigation menu on mobile.
  • The description of "Waiting" daemons now mentions hibernation.

Minor

  • We no longer use -- to separate flags and arguments in git ls-remote, because older versions of Git do not support it.
  • Dashboard panels can now be created directly from query result pages using Use ResultsAdd to Dashboard.
  • Dashboards is now a pinned applicaton by default.
  • Fixed an issue where editing a comment which mentioned an object with missing required fields could raise a required field error.
  • Fixed an issue where users could incorrectly receive an "Override Lock" prompt if the default view policy for Maniphest tasks did not include them.
  • Fixed an issue where not all possible avatars actually generated, and bizarro avatars from a negative universe attempted to generate on 32-bit systems.
  • When rendered as dashboard panels, bucked Audit and Differential query results now hide empty buckets.
  • Destroying a Calendar event now destroys data more exhaustively.
  • The Conduit API console now shows a hint about submitting a request to learn how to encode the request data.
  • So long, serifs.
