2.16.0 with bug fixes and URL signing

Tue, 21 Feb 2012

The 2.16.0 release sums up small fixes that piled up slowly, over a good year.

Also, URL signing (introduced in 2.14.0) is now considered stable. See Configuring URL signatures for more information on this interesting way to restrict downloads with temporary URLs.

The following bugs were fixed:

  • The server could crash if there was configuration for fallback mirrors in place and acquisition of a database connection failed.
  • mb scan: If some directories on a mirror return 404, the scanner crashed. Patched by Thorsten Behrens.
  • logging messages in the scanner's large file check have been silenced and their formatting improved.
  • A compatibility issue with newer Python versions has been fixed, found by Christian Lohmaier. Also, non-availability of some feature in old (ancient) Python versions is handled better.

Please refer to the 2.16.0 release notes for more details.

Packaged binaries are built and ready for upgrading. You will find them on the download page, as usual.
