This fourth (and hopefully final 😉) release candidate of the 1.3.9 release fixes three regressions newly reported in the prior RCs:

  • #2737 (regression) - Fix print button being enabled even though no file is selected.
  • #2738 (regression) - Limit the use of the --no-cache-dir argument added to pip calls to such versions of pip that already support it (anything newer than 1.5.6).
  • Only perform write tests on directories where necessary. Especially avoid them on page rendition to prevent misconfigured folders from triggering an HTTP 500. (regression)

You can find the full changelog and release notes as usual on Github.

If you are tracking the “Maintenance RC” release channel, you should soon get an update notification just like you are used to from stable releases.

If you want to help test this release candidate and aren’t yet tracking the “Maintenance RCs” release channel, you can find information on how to switch in this guide (also linked below).

If you are not interested in helping to test release candidates, just ignore this post, 1.3.9 stable will hit your instance via the usual way once reports indicate that it’s ready 😊

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”.

Depending on how the feedback for this release candidate turns out, I’ll either look into releasing 1.3.9 or fix any observed regressions and push out a new release candidate ASAP.
