Zulip 2.1.1 bug fix release

We released Zulip Server 2.1.1 today. This is a bug fix release, containing several cherry-picked changes since Zulip 2.1.1.

What’s new

This releases fixes a few important bugs in previous versions of Zulip. It contains fixes for the following issues:

  • Fixed upgrading to 2.1.x with the LDAP integration enabled in a configuration where AUTH_LDAP_REVERSE_EMAIL_SEARCH is required, but is not yet set.
  • Reimplemented --postgres-missing-dictionaries installer option,
    used with our new support for a DBaaS managed database.
  • Improved documentation for AUTH_LDAP_REVERSE_EMAIL_SEARCH.

Upgrading

These changes only affect installing or upgrading Zulip, so there's no reason to upgrade if you're already running Zulip 2.1.0.  But if you're upgrading from an older version, we recommend (as always) upgrading directly to the latest 2.1.x release.

See the upgrade instructions in the Zulip documentation.

If you need help, best-effort support is available on chat.zulip.org, the Zulip community chat server.
