The following error occurs when visiting the site's homepage:

TypeError: 'bool' object is not callable

Looking at the documentation for flask-login, it seems that the latest version has is_authenticated as a dynamic property rather than a method. I'm not sure if this error is occurring because I have a later version of the library than the code expects.

Removing the trailing () makes things work for first-party code, but there appears to be some third-party code that thinks is_authenticated is a method.

According to flask-login releases, it appears a new version 0.3.0 was just released 2 days ago, so I'm wondering if whatever dependency is requiring flask-login (as it doesn't appear to be in our requirements.txt) simply isn't clamping down on the version number tightly enough.

You are correct! The new flask-login broke those method calls. I think we should just clamp our requirements.txt to the older version for now, until we can confirm it breaks nothing else.
