This fifth RC of 1.4.0 fixes some regressions and issues in the new functionality observed with the prior RCs:
- #3442 (UX of new functionality): Plugin Manager: Add UI representation of incompatible installed plugins
- Removed a duplicated line of code
- #3400 (regression): Reintroduced the message backlog on unauthenticated push sockets for better backwards compatibility for third party plugins.
- #3434 (regression): Fixed autologin & handling of disabled access control
- #3442 (bug in new functionality): Fix incompatible plugins being marked as enabled
- (regression) Fixed handling of unset remote addresses
The heads-up regarding Plugins and Python 3 from 1.4.0rc1 still applies.
You can find the full changelog and release notes as usual on Github.
Special thanks to everyone who contributed to this release candidate and provided full, analyzable bug reports, you help making the next release as stable as possible!
As the past RCs have shown me that a lot of people appear to be unaware of this: Please do not install this RC if you expect a fully stable version. It is not a stable release, it is a release candidate, and of the next big release to boot: severe bugs may occur, and they might be bad enough that they make a manual downgrade to an earlier version necessary - maybe even from the command line.
You should feel comfortable with and capable of possibly having to do this before installing an RC.
If you want to and can help test this release candidate, you can find information on how to switch to the “Maintenance RCs” release channel in this guide if not already done (also linked below).
Please provide feedback on this RC. For general feedback you can use this ticket on the tracker. The information that everything works fine for you is also valuable feedback 😄. For bug reports please follow “How to file a bug report” - I need logs and reproduction steps to fix issues, not just the information that something doesn’t work so make sure to fill out all fields of the issue template.
Depending on the feedback regarding this version I’ll look into fixing any observed regressions and bugs and pushing out a follow-up version as soon as possible and necessary.
