    • A new config option FILES_ACCOUNTSTORE_V1_SECRET_KEY is introduced. Default: empty. link to config
    • The Files plugin will not work when this option is empty.

    Old configs: FILES_PASSWORD_KEY and FILES_PASSWORD_IV will still work for older accounts if configured, but note if the old options are removed, we cannot decrypt older accounts. Therefor make sure you’ve made a backup of those keys.
