v2.7.0 ~ Jump (ce)

Release date: February 11th, 2019.

This release introduces some security fixes, new dependencies and database changes. Make sure you follow the minor update documentation to roll out this new version as soon as possible.

Update documentation


The main focus of this release was to improve the performance and reactivity of the application, as well as address some minor security issues.

The only feature that was added is a better support for url sharing, e.g. if you look at the sidebar when clicking on a resource you will be presented with a link. You can use it to send the url to a given resource to a colleague: if they have access to this resource they will be able to navigate directly to it. Similarly links in emails pointing to a resource will take you directly to the corresponding record.

Application urls are now more usable fig. Application urls are now more usable

The team also worked hard to speed up the performances of the application, most notably by starting to load OpenPGP secrets asynchronously (instead of within the resource index calls). This strategy allows to reduce the loading time of the homepage from 12 to 2 seconds, in our tests with a database containing 2000 passwords shared over 400 users. This ground work was also necessary in order to be able to trace accesses to secrets and provide a more granular audit log coming up in the next release.

This release also includes 3 fixes found during an independent security audit conducted by french security researcher Jose-Alexandre Mayan. You can learn more about these fixes on the dedicated security incident page.

The team also wanted to thank everyone who reported issues and helped us investigate them further, especially Ricardo Marinho, Marc-Daniell Hess, Christoph Grabmer and Eric Wright.
