exception responses. - Add note about why we've created a shadow exception hierarchy parallel to that of webob.exc.
should be used instead of the ``pyramid.view.is_response`` function, which has been deprecated. - Deprecated ``pyramid.view.is_response`` function in favor of (newly-added) ``pyramid.request.Request.is_response`` method. Determining if an object is truly a valid response object now requires access to the registry, which is only easily available as a request attribute. The ``pyramid.view.is_response`` function will still work until it is removed, but now may return an incorrect answer under some (very uncommon) circumstances.
- Fix Configurator docstring wrt exception responses. - Speed up registry.queryAdapterOrSelf
abstraction. - It is now possible to return an arbitrary object from a Pyramid view callable even if a renderer is not used, as long as a suitable adapter to ``pyramid.interfaces.IResponse`` is registered for the type of the returned object. See the section in the Hooks chapter of the documentation entitled "Changing How Pyramid Treats View Responses". - The Pyramid router now, by default, expects response objects returned from view callables to implement the ``pyramid.interfaces.IResponse`` interface. Unlike the Pyramid 1.0 version of this interface, objects which implement IResponse now must define a ``__call__`` method that accepts ``environ`` and ``start_response``, and which returns an ``app_iter`` iterable, among other things. Previously, it was possible to return any object which had the three WebOb ``app_iter``, ``headerlist``, and ``status`` attributes as a response, so this is a backwards incompatibility. It is possible to get backwards compatibility back by registering an adapter to IResponse from the type of object you're now returning from view callables. See the section in the Hooks chapter of the documentation entitled "Changing How Pyramid Treats View Responses". - The ``pyramid.interfaces.IResponse`` interface is now much more extensive. Previously it defined only ``app_iter``, ``status`` and ``headerlist``; now it is basically intended to directly mirror the ``webob.Response`` API, which has many methods and attributes. - Documentation changes to support above.
method which implements the WSGI application interface instead of the three webob attrs status, headerlist and app_iter. Backwards compatibility exists for code which returns response objects that do not have a __call__. - pyramid.response.Response is no longer an exception (and therefore cannot be raised in order to generate a response). - Changed my mind about moving stuff from pyramid.httpexceptions to pyramid.response. The stuff I moved over has been moved back to pyramid.httpexceptions.
``start_response`` callable and obtains the WSGI ``app_iter`` based on adapting the response object to the new ``pyramid.interfaces.IResponder`` interface. The default ``IResponder`` uses Pyramid 1.0's logic to do this. To override the responder:: from pyramid.interfaces import IResponder from pyramid.response import Response from myapp import MyResponder config.registry.registerAdapter(MyResponder, (Response,), IResponder, name='') This makes it possible to reuse response object implementations which have, for example, their own ``__call__`` expected to be used as a WSGI application (like ``pyramid.response.Response``), e.g.: class MyResponder(object): def __init__(self, response): """ Obtain a reference to the response """ self.response = response def __call__(self, request, start_response): """ Call start_response and return an app_iter """ app_iter = self.response(request.environ, start_response) return app_iter
- The ``pyramid.request.Request`` class now has a ``ResponseClass`` interface which points at ``pyramid.response.Response``. - The ``pyramid.request.Response`` class now has a ``RequestClass`` interface which points at ``pyramid.response.Request``. - ``pyramid.response.Response`` is now a *subclass* of ``webob.response.Response``. It also inherits from the built-in Python ``Exception`` class and implements the ``pyramid.interfaces.IExceptionResponse`` class so it can be raised as an exception from view code.

``pyramid.httpexceptions.redirect``. - Added "HTTP Exceptions" section to Views narrative chapter including a description of ``pyramid.httpexceptions.abort``; adjusted redirect section to note ``pyramid.httpexceptions.redirect``. - A default exception view for the context ``webob.exc.HTTPException`` (aka ``pyramid.httpexceptions.HTTPException``) is now registered by default. This means that an instance of any exception class imported from ``pyramid.httpexceptions`` (such as ``HTTPFound``) can now be raised from within view code; when raised, this exception view will render the exception to a response. - New functions named ``pyramid.httpexceptions.abort`` and ``pyramid.httpexceptions.redirect`` perform the equivalent of their Pylons brethren when an HTTP exception handler is registered. These functions take advantage of the newly registered exception view for ``webob.exc.HTTPException``. - The Configurator now accepts an additional keyword argument named ``httpexception_view``. By default, this argument is populated with a default exception view function that will be used when an HTTP exception is raised. When ``None`` is passed for this value, an exception view for HTTP exceptions will not be registered. Passing ``None`` returns the behavior of raising an HTTP exception to that of Pyramid 1.0 (the exception will propagate to middleware and to the WSGI server).
