Hello ,

The Arvados team is pleased to announce Arvados 2.3.1. This release
features server side support for checking metadata properties against a
vocabulary, and a number of bug fixes. We recommend that new and existing
installations of 2.3.0 <https://arvados.org/release-notes/2.3.0> or earlier
upgrade to 2.3.1. See Upgrading Arvados
<https://doc.arvados.org/v2.3/admin/upgrading.html> for upgrade
New Features

#17944 <https://dev.arvados.org/issues/17944>

Object properties can now be optionally checked during create an update
operations against a metadata vocabulary. The vocabulary lists formal
identifiers and human-readable aliases for metadata keys and values.
Metadata which is not valid in the vocabulary configuration will be
rejected with an error message explaining what is wrong. For more
information, see the Metadata vocabulary
<https://doc.arvados.org/v2.3/admin/metadata-vocabulary.html> section of
the admin documentation.

#16817 <https://dev.arvados.org/issues/16817>

New configuration option Users.ActivatedUsersAreVisibleToOthers. When
enabled, new users will be visible to other users by default, instead of
hidden from other users by default. Based on feedback, this option is also
now enabled by default.

#16957 <https://dev.arvados.org/issues/16957>

arvados-cwl-runner now checks if a workflow has a circular dependency and
reports an error before start, instead of failing with “workflow
Bug Fixes

#18346 <https://dev.arvados.org/issues/18346>

In a LoginCluster federation, satellite clusters will no longer forward
requests to the login cluster when the request is authorized with a token
that was issued by the satellite cluster. This prevents a situation from
forming where the login cluster connects back to the satellite to attempt
to validate the token, creating a queue of pending requests and ultimately
making the both clusters unresponsive.

In addition, the arv-mount process started by crunch-run will no longer
connect to the websockets server (this was introduced in 2.3.0 as an
unintentional side effect of another change).

#18183 <https://dev.arvados.org/issues/18183>

When a user account is deactivated, Arvados will now explicitly revoke
their tokens as well.

#17962 <https://dev.arvados.org/issues/17962>

Improved error handling in arv-copy when copying one item fails while
copying a project.

#18339 <https://dev.arvados.org/issues/18339>

Sweeping trashed objects is now controlled by arvados-controller, which
will acquire an advisory lock before starting a trash sweep process. This
prevents multiple trash sweep operations from running at once.

#18298 <https://dev.arvados.org/issues/18298>

When using the LSF dispatcher, if a container is submitted that cannot ever
run (e.g. due to unsatisfiable hardware requirements) the error will now be
detected and logged.

#12859 <https://dev.arvados.org/issues/12859>

Fixes file descriptor leak in Keepstore using the filesystem-backed driver
and clients hang up before the operation is completed.

#18316 <https://dev.arvados.org/issues/18316>

Fix bug when mounting a collection by uuid. Arv-mount will no longer
attempt to save the collection (resulting in an error) when the file is
opened and then closed on read-only mounts.

#18215 <https://dev.arvados.org/issues/18215>

Workbench 2 now selects specific fields to be returned by updates (such as
changing the name) so that the API server does not unnecessarily send large
fields such as manifest_text.

#17635 <https://dev.arvados.org/issues/17635>

Add preserve_version option to the arvados.collection.Collection.save() and
save_new() methods in the Python SDK.

#18340 <https://dev.arvados.org/issues/18340>

Deleting role and filter groups will now delete them immediately instead of
marking them as “trashed”. This fixes a bug where role groups would linger
and continue to grant unintended permissions.

#18363 <https://dev.arvados.org/issues/18363>

Clarify that properties marked as Protected: true under
Collections.ManagedProperties can be set if not already defined, but once
set cannot be changed except by admins (documentation update only).

#18376 <https://dev.arvados.org/issues/18376>

Change how the Keepstore filesystem driver reads the list of keep blocks
from the filesystem during an “index” request to avoid an NFS timeout.

#18285 <https://dev.arvados.org/issues/18285>

Fix the incorrect “Unknown hint” warning from arvados-cwl-runner when using
Arvados extensions.

#18387 <https://dev.arvados.org/issues/18387>

Crunch-run now reports the correct version number.

#18336 <https://dev.arvados.org/issues/18336>

Pin upper version of httplib2 in Python SDK to avoid version conflict.

#18309 <https://dev.arvados.org/issues/18309>

Adjust dependency on faraday Ruby gem for compatibility between tools.

#18318 <https://dev.arvados.org/issues/18318>

Update nokogiri Ruby gem for CVE-2021-41098. (Note: Arvados only supports
CRuby, so we do not believe it is affected by this CVE).
