[] Rich Document Rendering: See T13105. This release adds preliminary support for richer rendering of more document types.

Previously, viewing images, audio, or video in Files would render the document inline.

Support has been expanded to include text files, remarkup, hexdumps, and JSON. PDFs also render somewhat more usefully.

A primitive rendering engine for Jupyter notebooks is also now available. It's probably better than reading the raw JSON, but maybe not by much.


The PDF mime type application/pdf is now included in files.viewable-mime-types by default, which allows it to be served without Content-Disposition: attachment. If you are particularly paranoid about this, you can remove it to force PDFs to download.

When PDF content is served without Content-Disposition: attachment, the response includes a weaker object-src Content-Security-Policy to allow Chrome to render PDFs in the browser.

These changes should generally be safe, but do increase the amount of attack surface area Phabricator exposes on user content.
