1.10.1 - 2022-08-02

added

Added

  • Improve TCP/TLS performance if no traffic shaper is configured using the max_bps option.
  • mod_stats_prometheus: Add a counter for STUN/TURN protocol errors, bucketed by transport and error condition.
  • build.config: Add code_loading option to specify whether code is loaded statically during eturnal startup or dynamically on demand. The latter may be desirable for (distribution) builds that use separately packaged Erlang dependencies, as it avoids hard-coding dependency versions at build time.
  • Docker: Include STUN lookup at container start for an IPv6 address as well.
  • Docker: Allow to define a different external STUN service for IP address lookups by adding the container-image-specific environment variable STUN_SERVICE, defaulting to: STUN_SERVICE="stun.conversations.im 3478". This same variable may also be used to disable the STUN lookup by defining STUN_SERVICE=false.

changed

Changed

  • build.config: Rename the eturnal_bin_prefix option to eturnal_prefix.
  • Binary release: Reduce code size by omitting an unused transitive dependency (which had slipped back into the previous release).

removed

Removed

  • build.config: Remove the eturnal_etc_prefix option.

fixed

Fixed

  • Fix dynamic loading of mod_stats_prometheus dependencies (for distribution builds).
  • Docker: Keep list of installed packages, so that image scanners like Trivy can check the image for vulnerabilities.

1.10.0 - 2022-07-27

added-1

Added

  • Include mod_stats_prometheus, a module for exporting metrics to Prometheus.
  • Include an example configuration for logrotate.
  • Include an example OpenRC init (and configuration) file.

changed-1

Changed

  • If an EPMD process was spawned during eturnal startup, stop it on shutdown, unless it's used by other Erlang nodes.

fixed-1

Fixed

  • Avoid permission issues in the case where eturnalctl was invoked by root from a directory the user running eturnal isn't permitted to change into.
  • Make sure eturnalctl daemon won't hang on the very first startup when using Erlang/OTP 23 or newer.

1-9-1-2022-07-17

1.9.1 - 2022-07-17

added-2

Added

  • Allow for adding the special keywords default or recommended to the blacklist. The former expands to the addresses blocked by default, the latter includes the former and additionally expands to a number of networks recommended to be blocked.
  • Fall back to reading the relay port range boundaries from environment variables when relay_min_port and/or relay_max_port aren't specified.
  • Docker: Adjust image ENTRYPOINT to provide a way to autodetect (in most cases) the Docker host's IPv4 address during container startup within isolated network environments, without explicitly defining the IPv4 address (with an ENV variable or a configuration file).

changed-2

Changed

  • If an EPMD process is spawned during eturnal startup, let it listen on localhost only (#9). (Note that our Linux packages and container images are configured to not start an EPMD process.)
  • Omit the code location from log messages, except when debug logging is enabled.
  • Apply other minor logging improvements.
  • Docker: Reduce image size. IMPORTANT: A custom eturnal.yml configuration file should be mounted to the default path /etc/eturnal.yml or to a custom path defined with ETURNAL_ETC_PREFIX, as mounting it to /opt/eturnal/etc/eturnal.yml will prevent the container to start up successfully.
  • Binary release: Update Erlang/OTP from 25.0.2 to 25.0.3.
  • Windows: Update to LibYAML 0.2.5.
  • Windows: Update to OpenSSL 3.0.5.

1-9-0-2022-07-07

1.9.0 - 2022-07-07

added-3

Added

  • Publish Docker images and provide configuration examples for Docker/Kubernetes (many thanks to Saarko) (#20).
  • Fall back to reading the relay IP addresses from environment variables when relay_ipv4_address and/or relay_ipv6_address aren't specified (#24).

changed-3

Changed

  • Binary release: Update Erlang/OTP from 24.3.4 to 25.0.2.
  • Binary release: Update Rebar3 from 3.18.0 to 3.19.0.
  • Binary release: Update OpenSSL from 1.1.1m to 1.1.1q.
  • Binary release: Update minimum glibc version from 2.17 to 2.19.
  • Binary release: Reduce code size by omitting an unused transitive dependency.

fixed-2

Fixed

  • Avoid crashes in the case where no secret is configured in the eturnal.yml file (#21).
  • Don't log misleading complaints about proxy_protocol option.
  • Gracefully handle errors while receiving UDP data (#23).
  • Restart listeners on failure.
  • Reduce log level for network issues that may occur during normal operation.
  • Windows: Support custom installation path (#22).

1-8-3-2022-05-12

1.8.3 - 2022-05-12

changed-4

Changed

  • Specifying an ip address for listen entries is no longer mandatory. The default value is now "::".
  • Make sure eturnal's log_dir is used for the additional log files created by eturnalctl daemon.
  • Keep TURN session IDs unique across eturnal restarts.
  • Binary release: Update Erlang/OTP from 24.2.2 to 24.3.4.
  • Binary release: Update OpenSSL from 1.1.1m to 1.1.1o.
  • Binary release: Update zlib from 1.2.11 to 1.2.12.
  • Binary release: Use new (GCC-11.2-based) version of build toolchain.
  • Binary release: Provide self-extracting installer for non-DEB/RPM systems.

fixed-3

Fixed

1-8-2-2022-03-02

1.8.2 - 2022-03-02

changed-5

Changed

  • Use a (pseudo)random secret by default.
  • Improve autodetection of relay IP addresses used by default if the relay_ipv4_addr and/or relay_ipv6_addr options aren't specified.
  • Binary release: Update Erlang/OTP from 24.2 to 24.2.2.

fixed-4

Fixed

  • Don't crash without explicit listen configuration. This bug was introduced with version 1.7.0.
  • Don't crash if the configuration file is empty (i.e., has no eturnal section).
  • Don't crash if TURN is enabled without a public IPv6 relay address being available.

1-8-1-2022-01-10

1.8.1 - 2022-01-10

fixed-5

Fixed

  • Don't fail to handle the $user argument of the eturnalctl sessions and eturnalctl disconnect calls.

1-8-0-2022-01-10

1.8.0 - 2022-01-10

added-4

Added

  • Allow for configuring TLS connection properties using the new tls_options, tls_ciphers, and tls_dh_file options (#6).
  • Allow for specifying a whitelist of IP addresses/subnets which will be accepted even if they would otherwise be rejected due to being matched by a blacklist (#12).
  • Don't close active TURN sessions when ephemeral credentials expire, by default. The new strict_expiry option allows for enabling the previous behavior.
  • Add eturnalctl disconnect $user command for closing any TURN session(s) of the specified $user name.
  • Let the eturnalctl sessions command accept an optional $user argument to list only the TURN session(s) of the specified $user name.
  • Support running eturnal without the Erlang Port Mapper Daemon (EPMD) by specifying the environment variable ERL_DIST_PORT (requires at least Erlang/OTP 23.1 and Rebar3 3.18.0).

changed-6

Changed

  • Binary release: Run eturnal without EPMD (as described above).

fixed-6

Fixed

  • Don't log bogus error messages if no eturnal modules are enabled when using Erlang/OTP version 21.0, 21.1, or 21.2.
  • Binary release: Don't let Erlang/OTP link against libnsl.so.1, which is no longer shipped by default on RedHat-based distributions, and isn't actually needed (#19).

1-7-0-2021-12-15

1.7.0 - 2021-12-15

added-5

Added

1-2-1-2020-08-16

1.2.1 - 2020-08-16

fixed-14

Fixed

  • Strip the BEAM files shipped with the binary release. Due to a bug in the build tooling, this didn't happen for the previous release.

1-2-0-2020-08-16

1.2.0 - 2020-08-16

added-10

Added

  • Add experimental support for modules and include a mod_example with the source code. The APIs aren't documented yet and may change in the future.
  • Include mod_stats_influx, a module for logging STUN/TURN events/statistics to InfluxDB (contributed by Marc Schink).

1-0-0-2020-07-13

1.0.0 - 2020-07-13

added-12

Added

  • Allow for setting the log_dir option to the special value stdout, which tells eturnal to print log messages to the standard output rather than logging to a file.
  • Publish DEB and RPM packages, and adjust the documentation accordingly.

changed-18

Changed

  • Allow for binding to privileged ports (if started via systemd).
  • Disable TURN support in the example configuration file.
  • If the distribution provides an epmd.service, make sure eturnal uses it rather than starting its own EPMD instance.
  • Don't bind EPMD to 127.0.0.1 by default.

fixed-16

Fixed

  • Only signal readiness to systemd if eturnal's startup actually was successful.

0-8-0-2020-07-08

0.8.0 - 2020-07-08

added-13

Added

  • Support systemd's notify startup type.
  • Support systemd's service watchdog feature.

changed-19

Changed

  • Remove max_allocations option from the documentation and from the example configuration. The stun application currently ignores this option, and it's not all that useful with ephemeral TURN credentials anyway.
