This release fixes a number of smaller issues and adds new translations.

This bug fix releases addresses a number of smaller issues and regressions, adds four new translations and includes updated libraries. Links in pastes now by default open in a new browser tab or window. The project information text and link is now a configuration option.

Benefits of switching to the new release

We recommend to upgrade 1.3.x instances to address these issues.

Update procedure

As usual, you can download the archive for a manual upgrade and can find more details in the installation instructions.

We also offer a Docker container that includes the recommended secure setup with the non-essential files and data outside of the web servers document root.

If you have enabled the fileupload setting and use a custom cspheader, please consider adding allow-downloads to the sandbox property. This lets users of the Google Chrome browser, version 83 or higher, download attachments - inline display of images, media or PDFs files was not affected by this change in Chrome's sandbox behaviour.

Help wanted & greatly appreciated

Apart from the large tasks that require deeper insight and time, there are also smaller issues were help is wanted, topics open to debate and of course many languages that still remain to be translated. We are also still looking for additional long term maintainers among our frequent issue helpers.

If you are interested in helping with any of these points, we have prepared a development guide including design goals, code structure and tools that should get you started.

Plans for future releases

The next regular release will focus on user interface improvements.
