New REST APIs for Pruning Unreferenced Data (PUD)
Three new REST APIs have been added for pruning unreferenced data (PUD): Start PUD Process, Get Status of the PUD Process, and Stop PUD Process. These APIs are used to delete randomly existing binaries in the filestore that are not referenced in Artifactory and cannot be deleted by Artifactory Garbage Collection. These APIs offer greater control over the PUD process from what was available prior to this release through the PUD user interface. The Start API can be used to start the PUD process from a specific directory or even from a specific binary in a directory, and there is an option to refrain from deleting unreferenced binaries that were created after a certain date. The Get Status API returns the current status of the PUD process (i.e., running, stopped, finished, or error), along with relevant data on the process such as total binaries deleted, total size of disk space cleaned, information on the last handled directory, and other information. And the Stop API allows you to stop the PUD process before it reaches the end of the directories list.

New REST APIs for Disable Basic Authentication
Two new REST APIs have been added to get the status for Disable Basic Authentication and to enable/disable Disable Basic Authentication. For more information, see GET Status of Disable Basic Authentication and Enable or Disable Disable Basic Authentication.
Next Generation Permissions
The gradual rollout of the next generation of permission model has started from this version. The new model is fully backward compatible with the legacy permissions model. The new model simplifies the UI user flows to configure all resource types. The popups to add resource type (like builds and repositories) have a new look and feel.
For more information, see Permissions.
