Version 3.4.8

Released: May 25, 2020

Changes

Documentation

The link to the installation chapter was fixed in both README files.

Dependencies

The django-qsstats-magic dependency was moved to the app that uses it, the mayan_statistics app.

Some dependencies were updated:

  • Pillow from version 7.0.0 to 7.1.2.

  • Werkzeug from version 1.0.0 to 1.0.1.

  • devpi-server from version 5.4.1 to 5.5.0.

  • django-celery-beat from version 1.5.0 to 2.0.0.

Operating systems

The detection of binaries under OpenBSD 6.7 was improved and added for the parsing app. Binaries under OpenBSD 6.7 are now detected and don’t require symbolic linking.

Quotas

Pre-creation hooks were added to the document and document version models. These hook are now used by the quotas app to check if the action for these models are valid and raise a quota exceeded error early on before the task is submitted for background processing.

Settings

Django’s AUTHENTICATION_BACKENDS setting was exposed and is now usable with Mayan’s configuration system.

User interface

Long texts in the panel’s body now wrap around. Likewise long tags now also wrap around when shown in a panel’s body.

Other

  • Move templating to the templating app. No functional changes added only code reorganization for future improvements.

  • Update translation files.

  • Encapsulate actstream registry inside a EventModelRegistry.

Removals

  • None

Upgrading process

  1. Stop supervisord:

    sudo systemctl stop supervisor
    

Upgrading from Mayan EDMS 3.2.x or earlier

  1. Update the Redis configuration:

    Configure Redis to discard data when it runs out of memory, not save its database, and only keep 2 database:

    echo "maxmemory-policy allkeys-lru" | sudo tee -a /etc/redis/redis.conf
    echo "save \"\"" | sudo tee -a /etc/redis/redis.conf
    echo "databases 2" | sudo tee -a /etc/redis/redis.conf
    echo "requirepass mayanredispassword" | sudo tee -a /etc/redis/redis.conf
    sudo systemctl restart redis
    
  2. Install the Python 3 development OS package:

    sudo apt-get install python3-dev
    
  3. Update the virtualenv to use Python 3:

    sudo -u mayan virtualenv --clear /opt/mayan-edms -p /usr/bin/python3
    
  4. Create a home directory for the Mayan EDMS system user:

    mkdir /home/mayan
    
  5. Grant ownership to the Mayan EDMS system user:

    chown mayan:mayan /home/mayan
    
  6. Reinstall the Python client for PostgreSQL and Redis:

    sudo -u mayan /opt/mayan-edms/bin/pip install psycopg2==2.8.4 redis==3.4.1
    

    Note

    Platforms with the ARM CPU might also need additional requirements:

    sudo -u mayan /opt/mayan-edms/bin/pip install psutil==5.7.0
    
  7. Reinstall the Python client for RabbitMQ if you are using RabbitMQ as a broker:

    sudo -u mayan /opt/mayan-edms/bin/pip install amqp==2.5.2
    

Upgrading from Mayan EDMS 3.3.x

  1. Upgrade to the latest pip version:

    sudo -u mayan /opt/mayan-edms/bin/pip install -U pip
    
  2. Update the Redis configuration to enable password protection:

    echo "requirepass mayanredispassword" | sudo tee -a /etc/redis/redis.conf
    sudo systemctl restart redis
    
  3. Remove deprecated requirements:

    sudo -u mayan curl https://gitlab.com/mayan-edms/mayan-edms/raw/master/removals.txt -o /tmp/removals.txt \
    && sudo -u mayan /opt/mayan-edms/bin/pip uninstall -y -r /tmp/removals.txt
    
  4. Update the Mayan EDMS Python package:

    sudo -u mayan /opt/mayan-edms/bin/pip install mayan-edms==3.4.8
    

    the requirements will also be updated automatically.

  5. Make a backup of your supervisord file:

    sudo cp /etc/supervisor/conf.d/mayan.conf /etc/supervisor/conf.d/mayan.conf.bck
    
  6. Update the supervisord configuration file. Replace the environment variables values show here with your respective settings. This step will refresh the supervisord configuration file with the new queues and the latest recommended layout:

    sudo -u mayan MAYAN_DATABASE_ENGINE=django.db.backends.postgresql MAYAN_DATABASE_NAME=mayan \
    MAYAN_DATABASE_PASSWORD=mayanuserpass MAYAN_DATABASE_USER=mayan \
    MAYAN_DATABASE_HOST=127.0.0.1 MAYAN_MEDIA_ROOT=/opt/mayan-edms/media \
    /opt/mayan-edms/bin/mayan-edms.py platformtemplate supervisord | sudo sh -c "cat > /etc/supervisor/conf.d/mayan.conf"
    

    or:

    sudo -u mayan MAYAN_DATABASES=\"{'default':{'ENGINE':'django.db.backends.postgresql','NAME':'mayan','PASSWORD':'mayanuserpass','USER':'mayan','HOST':'127.0.0.1'}}\" \
    MAYAN_MEDIA_ROOT=/opt/mayan-edms/media \
    /opt/mayan-edms/bin/mayan-edms.py platformtemplate supervisord | sudo sh -c "cat > /etc/supervisor/conf.d/mayan.conf"
    
  7. Edit the supervisord configuration file and update any setting specific to your installation:

    sudo vi /etc/supervisor/conf.d/mayan.conf
    
  8. Migrate existing database schema and static media files with:

    sudo -u mayan MAYAN_DATABASE_ENGINE=django.db.backends.postgresql MAYAN_DATABASE_NAME=mayan \
    MAYAN_DATABASE_PASSWORD=mayanuserpass MAYAN_DATABASE_USER=mayan \
    MAYAN_DATABASE_HOST=127.0.0.1 MAYAN_MEDIA_ROOT=/opt/mayan-edms/media \
    /opt/mayan-edms/bin/mayan-edms.py performupgrade
    

    or:

     sudo -u mayan MAYAN_DATABASES="{'default':{'ENGINE':'django.db.backends.postgresql','NAME':'mayan','PASSWORD':'mayanuserpass','USER':'mayan','HOST':'127.0.0.1'}}" \
     MAYAN_MEDIA_ROOT=/opt/mayan-edms/media \
    /opt/mayan-edms/bin/mayan-edms.py performupgrade
    
  9. Start supervisord:

    sudo systemctl start supervisor
    
  10. Clear the browser cache to avoid loading old web assets.

The upgrade procedure is now complete.
