Edits on tracks, albums and artists
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Funkwhale was a bit annoying when it camed to metadata. Tracks, albums and artists profiles
were created from audio file tags, but basically immutable after that (unless you had
admin access to Django's UI, which wasn't ideal to do this kind of changes).

With this release, everyone can suggest changes on track, album and artist pages. Users
with the "library" permission can review suggested edits in a dedicated interface
and apply/reject them.

Approved edits are broadcasted via federation, to ensure other instances get the information
too.

Not all fields are currently modifiable using this feature. Especially, it's not possible
to suggest a new album cover, or reassign a track to a different album or artist. Those will
be implemented in a future release.

Admin UI for tracks, albums, artists, libraries and uploads
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

As part of our ongoing effort to make Funkwhale easier to manage for instance owners,
this release includes a brand new administration interface to deal with:

- tracks
- albums
- artists
- libraries
- uploads

You can use this UI to quickly search for any object, delete objects in batch, understand
where they are coming from etc. This new UI should remove the need to go through Django's
admin in the vast majority of cases (but also includes a link to Django's admin when needed).

Artist hiding in the interface
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

It's now possible for users to hide artists they don't want to see.

Content linked to hidden artists will not show up in the interface anymore. Especially:

- Hidden artists tracks are removed from the current queue
- Starting a playlist will skip tracks from hidden artists
- Recently favorited, recently listened and recently added widgets on the homepage won't include content from hidden artists
- Radio suggestions will exclude tracks from hidden artists
- Hidden artists won't appear in Subsonic apps

Results linked to hidden artists will continue to show up in search results and their profile page remains accessible.

OAuth2 authorization for better integration with third-party apps
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Funkwhale now support the OAuth2 authorization and authentication protocol which will allow
third-party apps to interact with Funkwhale on behalf of users.

This feature makes it possible to build third-party apps that have the same capabilities
as Funkwhale's Web UI. The only exception at the moment is for actions that requires
special permissions, such as modifying instance settings or moderation (but this will be
enabled in a future release).

If you want to start building an app on top of Funkwhale's API, please check-out
`https://docs.funkwhale.audio/api.html`_ and `https://docs.funkwhale.audio/developers/authentication.html`_.

Better error handling and display during import
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Funkwhale should now be more resilient to missing tags in imported files, and give
you more insights when something goes wrong, including the specific tags that were missing
or invalid, and additional debug information to share in your support requests.

This information is available in all pages that list uploads, when clicking on the button next to the upload status.

Support for S3-compatible storages to store media files
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Storing all media files on the Funkwhale server itself may not be possible or desirable
in all scenarios. You can now configure Funkwhale to store those files in a S3
bucket instead.

Check-out `https://docs.funkwhale.audio/admin/external-storages.html`_ if you want to use
this feature.

Prune library command
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Users are often surprised by Funkwhale's tendency to keep track, album and artist
metadata even if no associated files exist.

To help with that, we now offer a ``prune_library`` management command you can run
to purge your database from obsolete entries. `Please refer to our documentation
for usage instructions <https://docs.funkwhale.audio/admin/commands.html#pruning-library>`_.

Check in-place files command
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

When using in-place import with a living audio library, you'll quite often rename or
remove files from the file system. Unfortunately, Funkwhale keeps a reference to those
files in the database, which results in unplayable tracks.

To help with that, we now offer a ``check_inplace_files`` management command you can run
to purge your database from obsolete files. `Please refer to our documentation
for usage instructions <https://docs.funkwhale.audio/admin/commands.html#remove-obsolete-files-from-database>`_.

*You are only concerned if you use the mono-container docker deployment behind a reverse proxy*

Because of `an issue in our mono-container configuration <https://github.com/thetarkus/docker-funkwhale/issues/19>`_, users deploying Funkwhale via docker
using our `funkwhale/all-in-one` image could face some mixed content warnings (and possibly other troubles)
when browsing the Web UI.

This is fixed in this release, but on existing deployments, you'll need to add ``NESTED_PROXY=1`` in your container
environment (either in your ``.env`` file, or via your container management tool), then recreate your funkwhale container.


Enhancements:

- Added title on hover for truncated content (#766)
- Ask for confirmation before leaving upload page if there is a an upload in process (#630)
- Exclude in-place imported files from quota computation (#570)
- Truncate filename in library file table to ensure correct display of the table. (#735)


Bugfixes:

- Avoid mixed content when deploying mono-container behind HTTPS proxy (thetarkus/docker-funkwhale#19)
- Display new notifications immediatly on notifications page (#729)
- Ensure cover art from uploaded files is picked up properly on existing albums (#757)
- Fixed a crash when federating a track with unspecified position
- Fixed broken Activity and Actor modules in django admin (#767)
- Fixed broken sample apache configuration (#764)
- Fixed constant and unpredictable reordering during file upload (#716)
- Fixed delivering of local activities causing unintended side effects, such as rollbacking changes (#737)
- Fixed escaping issues in translated strings (#652)
- Fixed saving moderation policy when clicking on "Cancel" (#751)
- i18n: Update page title when changing the App's language. (#511)
- Include disc number in Subsonic responses (#765)
- Do not send notification when rejecting a follow on a local library (#743)


Documentation:

- Added documentation on mono-container docker upgrade (#713)
- Added documentation to set up let's encrypt certificate (#745)

Fix Gzip compression to avoid BREACH exploit [security] [manual action required]

In the 0.18 release, we've enabled Gzip compression by default for various
content types, including HTML and JSON. Unfortunately, enabling Gzip compression
on such content types could make BREACH-type exploits possible.

We've removed the risky content-types from our nginx template files, to ensure new
instances are safe, however, if you already have an instance, you need
to double check that your host nginx virtualhost do not include the following
values for the ``gzip_types`` settings::

   application/atom+xml
   application/json
   application/ld+json
   application/activity+json
   application/manifest+json
   application/rss+xml
   application/xhtml+xml
   application/xml

For convenience, you can also replace the whole setting with the following snippet::

   gzip_types
      application/javascript
      application/vnd.geo+json
      application/vnd.ms-fontobject
      application/x-font-ttf
      application/x-web-app-manifest+json
      font/opentype
      image/bmp
      image/svg+xml
      image/x-icon
      text/cache-manifest
      text/css
      text/plain
      text/vcard
      text/vnd.rim.location.xloc
      text/vtt
      text/x-component
      text/x-cross-domain-policy;

Many thanks to @jibec for the report!

The way front is served has changed since 0.18. The Apache configuration can't serve 0.18 properly, leading to blank screens.

If you are on an Apache setup, you will have to replace the `<Location "/api">` block with the following::

   <Location "/">
      # similar to nginx 'client_max_body_size 100M;'
      LimitRequestBody 104857600

      ProxyPass ${funkwhale-api}/
      ProxyPassReverse ${funkwhale-api}/
   </Location>

And add some more `ProxyPass` directives so that the `Alias` part of your configuration file looks this way::

   ProxyPass "/front" "!"
   Alias /front /srv/funkwhale/front/dist

   ProxyPass "/media" "!"
   Alias /media /srv/funkwhale/data/media

   ProxyPass "/staticfiles" "!"
   Alias /staticfiles /srv/funkwhale/data/static

In case you are using custom css and theming, you also need to match this block::

   ProxyPass "/settings.json" "!"
   Alias /settings.json /srv/funkwhale/custom/settings.json

   ProxyPass "/custom" "!"
   Alias /custom /srv/funkwhale/custom

marked with ``[manual action required]`` and ``[manual action suggested]``.

See ``Full changelog`` below for an exhaustive list of changes!

Audio transcoding is back!
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

After removal of our first, buggy transcoding implementation, we're proud to announce
that this feature is back. It is enabled by default, and can be configured/disabled
in your instance settings!

This feature works in the browser, with federated/non-federated tracks and using Subsonic clients.
Transcoded tracks are generated on the fly, and cached for a configurable amount of time,
to reduce the load on the server.


Licensing and copyright information
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Funkwhale is now able to parse copyright and license data from file and store
this information. Apart from displaying it on each track detail page,
no additional behaviour is currently implemented to use this new data, but this
will change in future releases.

License and copyright data is also broadcasted over federation.

License matching is done on the content of the ``License`` tag in the files,
with a fallback on the ``Copyright`` tag.

Funkwhale will successfully extract licensing data for the following licenses:

- Creative Commons 0 (Public Domain)
- Creative Commons 1.0 (All declinations)
- Creative Commons 2.0 (All declinations)
- Creative Commons 2.5 (All declinations and countries)
- Creative Commons 3.0 (All declinations and countries)
- Creative Commons 4.0 (All declinations)

Support for other licenses such as Art Libre or WTFPL will be added in future releases.


Instance-level moderation tools
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

This release includes a first set of moderation tools that will give more control

Using these tools, it's now possible to:

- Browse known accounts and domains, and associated data (storage size, software version, etc.)
- Purge data belonging to given accounts and domains
- Block or partially restrict interactions with any account or domain

All those features are usable using a brand new "moderation" permission, meaning

for album and tracks that are available in public libraries. Important pages,
such as artist, album and track pages also include OpenGraph tags that will
enable previews on compatible apps (like sharing a Funkwhale track link on Mastodon
or Twitter).

To achieve that, we had to tweak the way Funkwhale front-end is served. You'll have
to modify your nginx configuration when upgrading to keep your instance working.

**On docker setups**, edit your ``/srv/funkwhale/nginx/funkwhale.template`` and replace
the ``location /api/`` and `location /` blocks by the following snippets::

    location / {
        include /etc/nginx/funkwhale_proxy.conf;
        # this is needed if you have file import via upload enabled
        client_max_body_size ${NGINX_MAX_BODY_SIZE};
        proxy_pass   http://funkwhale-api/;
    }

    location /front/ {
        alias /frontend/;
    }

The change of configuration will be picked when restarting your nginx container.

**On non-docker setups**, edit your ``/etc/nginx/sites-available/funkwhale.conf`` file,
and replace the ``location /api/`` and `location /` blocks by the following snippets::


    location / {
        include /etc/nginx/funkwhale_proxy.conf;
        # this is needed if you have file import via upload enabled
        client_max_body_size ${NGINX_MAX_BODY_SIZE};
        proxy_pass   http://funkwhale-api/;
    }

    location /front/ {
        alias ${FUNKWHALE_FRONTEND_PATH}/;
    }

Replace ``${FUNKWHALE_FRONTEND_PATH}`` by the corresponding variable from your .env file,
which should be ``/srv/funkwhale/front/dist`` by default, then reload your nginx process with
``sudo systemctl reload nginx``.

we're now able to provide an alternative and easier Docker deployment method!

In contrast with our current, multi-container offer, this method integrates
all Funkwhale processes and services (database, redis, etc.) into a single, easier to deploy container.

about this exciting new deployment option by visiting https://docs.funkwhale.audio/installation/docker.html!

Automatically load .env file
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

On non-docker deployments, earlier versions required you to source
the config/.env file before launching any Funkwhale command, with ``export $(cat config/.env | grep -v ^# | xargs)``

This is not the case anymore, and Funkwhale will automatically load this file if it's available.


Delete pre 0.17 federated tracks [manual action suggested]
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

If you were using Funkwhale before the 0.17 release and federated with other instances,
it's possible that you still have some unplayable federated files in the database.

To purge the database of those entries, you can run the following command:

On docker setups::

    docker-compose run --rm api python manage.py script delete_pre_017_federated_uploads --no-input

On non-docker setups::

    python manage.py script delete_pre_017_federated_uploads --no-input


Enable gzip compression [manual action suggested]
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Gzip compression will be enabled on new instances by default
and will reduce the amount of bandwidth consumed by your instance.

Using a LDAP directory to authenticate to your Funkwhale instance
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Funkwhale now support LDAP as an authentication source: you can configure
your instance to delegate login to a LDAP directory, which is especially
useful when you have an existing directory and don't want to manage users
manually.

You can use this authentication backend side by side with the classic one.

Have a look at https://docs.funkwhale.audio/installation/ldap.html
for detailed instructions on how to set this up.


Simplified nginx setup [Docker: Manual action required]
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

We've received a lot of user feedback regarding our installation process,
and it seems the proxy part is the one which is the most confusing and difficult.
Unfortunately, this is also the one where errors and mistakes can completely break
the application.

To make things easier for everyone, we now offer a simplified deployment
process for the reverse proxy part. This will make upgrade of the proxy configuration
significantly easier on docker deployments.

On non-docker instances, you have nothing to do.

If you have a dockerized instance, here is the upgrade path.

First, tweak your .env file::

    # remove the FUNKWHALE_URL variable
    # and add the next variables
    FUNKWHALE_HOSTNAME=yourdomain.funkwhale
    FUNKWHALE_PROTOCOL=https

    # add the following variable, matching the path your app is deployed
    # leaving the default should work fine if you deployed using the same
    # paths as the documentation
    FUNKWHALE_FRONTEND_PATH=/srv/funkwhale/front/dist

Then, add the following block at the end of your docker-compose.yml file::

    # existing services
    api:
        ...
    celeryworker:
        ...

    # new service
    nginx:
      image: nginx
      env_file:
        - .env
      environment:
        # Override those variables in your .env file if needed
865
        - "NGINX_MAX_BODY_SIZE=${NGINX_MAX_BODY_SIZE-100M}"

      volumes:
        - "./nginx/funkwhale.template:/etc/nginx/conf.d/funkwhale.template:ro"
        - "./nginx/funkwhale_proxy.conf:/etc/nginx/funkwhale_proxy.conf:ro"
        - "${MUSIC_DIRECTORY_SERVE_PATH-/srv/funkwhale/data/music}:${MUSIC_DIRECTORY_SERVE_PATH-/srv/funkwhale/data/music}:ro"
        - "${MEDIA_ROOT}:${MEDIA_ROOT}:ro"
        - "${STATIC_ROOT}:${STATIC_ROOT}:ro"
        - "${FUNKWHALE_FRONTEND_PATH}:/frontend:ro"
      ports:
        # override those variables in your .env file if needed
        - "${FUNKWHALE_API_IP}:${FUNKWHALE_API_PORT}:80"
      command: >
          sh -c "envsubst \"`env | awk -F = '{printf \" $$%s\", $$1}'`\"
          < /etc/nginx/conf.d/funkwhale.template
          > /etc/nginx/conf.d/default.conf
          && cat /etc/nginx/conf.d/default.conf
          && nginx -g 'daemon off;'"
      links:
        - api

By doing that, you'll enable a dockerized nginx that will automatically be
configured to serve your Funkwhale instance.

Download the required configuration files for the nginx container:

.. parsed-literal::

    cd /srv/funkwhale
    mkdir nginx

Update the funkwhale.conf configuration of your server's reverse-proxy::

    # the file should match something like that, upgrade all variables
    # between ${} to match the ones in your .env file,
    # and your SSL configuration if you're not using let's encrypt
    # The important thing is that you only have a single location block
    # that proxies everything to your dockerized nginx.

    sudo nano /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/funkwhale.conf
    upstream fw {
        # depending on your setup, you may want to update this
        server ${FUNKWHALE_API_IP}:${FUNKWHALE_API_PORT};
    }
    map $http_upgrade $connection_upgrade {
        default upgrade;
        ''      close;
    }

    server {
        listen 80;
        listen [::]:80;
        server_name ${FUNKWHALE_HOSTNAME};
        location / { return 301 https://$host$request_uri; }
    }
    server {
        listen      443 ssl;
        listen [::]:443 ssl;
        server_name ${FUNKWHALE_HOSTNAME};

        # TLS
        ssl_protocols TLSv1.2;
        ssl_ciphers HIGH:!MEDIUM:!LOW:!aNULL:!NULL:!SHA;
        ssl_prefer_server_ciphers on;
        ssl_session_cache shared:SSL:10m;
        ssl_certificate     /etc/letsencrypt/live/${FUNKWHALE_HOSTNAME}/fullchain.pem;
        ssl_certificate_key /etc/letsencrypt/live/${FUNKWHALE_HOSTNAME}/privkey.pem;

        # HSTS
        add_header Strict-Transport-Security "max-age=31536000";

        location / {
            include /etc/nginx/funkwhale_proxy.conf;
            proxy_pass   http://fw/;
        }
    }

Check that your configuration is valid then reload:

    sudo nginx -t
    sudo systemctl reload nginx
