Gerrit 184.108.40.206 is now available:
If upgrading from 2.1.6, there are no schema changes. Replace the WAR and restart the daemon.
If upgrading from 2.1.5 or earlier, there are schema changes. To upgrade:
java -jar gerrit.war init -d site_path
Display the originator of each access rule
The project access panel now shows which project each rule inherits from. This can be informative when the inheritance chain is more than 1 project deep (for example C inherits from B, which inherits from A, which inherits from -- All Projects --).
Improved user→gerrit push speed
Pushing changes for review (or directly to a branch) should be quicker now, especially if the project contains many changes.
Allow Owner permission to inherit
The project Owner permission can now be inherited from any parent project, provided that the parent project is not the root level -- All Projects --.
Fix disabled intraline difference checkbox
Intraline difference couldn’t be enabled once it was disabled by a user in their user preferences. Fixed.
Fix push over HTTP
Users couldn’t push to Gerrit over http://, due to a bug in the way user authentication was handled for the request. Fixed.
issue 751 Update displayed owner group after group rename
The group owner field didn’t update when a group was self-owned, and the self-owned group was renamed. This left the owner name at the old name, leaving the user to wonder if the group owner was also reassigned by another user. Fixed.
init: Fix string out of bounds when importing projects
Project importing died when the top level directory contained a ".git" directory (usually by accident by the site administrator). Fixed.
