Gerrit updated to 2.12.2 / Jenkins updated to 1.652

I’ve updated Gerrit from 2.11.5 to the latest release 2.12.2. These are the user-visible highlights:

  • New Submit Whole Topic setting: All changes belonging to the same topic will be submitted at the same time. Currently disabled because it’s still experimental but I will enable this once it’s considered stable.
  • Support for GPG Keys and signed pushes. You can add your GPG key in Gerrit and git push –signed to use this. This should work right now – but doesn’t for me at least. If you have more success, let me know. :)
  • New search operators, e. g. author:, committer:, commentby: and a few others.
  • Your preferences for editing and diff presentation can now be configured in your user settings.
  • Gerrit’s in-line editor has now support for Emacs and Vim key maps.
  • There are several new API calls available for those using their own Gerrit clients (yes, I’m looking at you, Kylie McClain! ;-) ).

You can find the complete release notes for the Gerrit versions here:

Gerrit 2.11.6
Gerrit 2.11.7

Gerrit 2.12.1

As for Jenkins, I’ve updated it to 1.652 as well. Nothing spectacular there but some bug fixes in the backend mostly; including two security fixes.

P. P. S.: If you (want to) vote for the AfD or other fascist parties: Please let me know. I like to know my enemies.
