Changelog
=========
This document describes changes between past releases. For information about
future releases, check `milestones`_ and :doc:`/about/vision`.
1.10 (unreleased)
-----------------
- Nothing changed yet.
1.9 (2016-03-15)
----------------
- Feature #112 - Introduced support of Django 1.9.
- Feature #113 - Introduced support of Python 3.5.
- Feature #116 - ``HTTPFile`` has ``content_type`` property. It makes
``HTTPDownloadView`` proxy ``Content-Type`` header from remote location.
1.8 (2015-07-20)
----------------
Bugfixes.
- Bugfix #103 - ``PathDownloadView.get_file()`` makes a single call to
``PathDownloadView.get_file()`` (was doing it twice).
- Bugfix #104 - Pass numeric timestamp to Django's ``was_modified_since()``
(was passing a datetime).
1.7 (2015-06-13)
----------------
Bugfixes.
- Bugfix #87 - Filenames with commas are now supported. In download responses,
filename is now surrounded by double quotes.
- Bugfix #97 - ``HTTPFile`` proxies bytes as ``BytesIteratorIO`` (was undecoded
urllib3 file object). ``StringIteratorIO`` has been split into
``TextIteratorIO`` and ``BytesIteratorIO``. ``StringIteratorIO`` is
deprecated but kept for backward compatibility as an alias for
``TextIteratorIO``.
- Bugfix #92 - Run demo using ``make demo runserver`` (was broken).
- Feature #99 - Tox runs project's tests with Python 2.7, 3.3 and 3.4, and with
Django 1.5 to 1.8.
- Refactoring #98 - Refreshed development environment: packaging, Tox and
Sphinx.
1.6 (2014-03-03)
----------------
Python 3 support, development environment refactoring.
- Feature #46: introduced support for Python>=3.3.
- Feature #80: added documentation about "how to serve a file inline VS how to
serve a file as attachment". Improved documentation of views' base options
inherited from ``DownloadMixin``.
- Feature #74: the Makefile in project's repository no longer creates a
virtualenv. Developers setup the environment as they like, i.e. using
virtualenv, virtualenvwrapper or whatever. Tests are run with tox.
1.5 (2013-11-29)
----------------
X-Sendfile support and helpers to migrate for `django-sendfile`.
- Feature #2 - Introduced support of Lighttpd's x-Sendfile.
- Feature #36 - Introduced support of Apache's mod_xsendfile.
- Feature #41 - ``django_downloadview.sendfile`` is a port of
`django-sendfile`'s ``sendfile`` function. The documentation contains notes
about migrating from `django-sendfile` to `django-downloadview`.
1.4 (2013-11-24)
----------------
Bugfixes and documentation features.
- Bugfix #43 - ``ObjectDownloadView`` returns HTTP 404 if model instance's file
field is empty (was HTTP 500).
- Bugfix #7 - Special characters in file names (``Content-Disposition`` header)
are urlencoded. An US-ASCII fallback is also provided.
- Feature #10 - `django-downloadview` is registered on djangopackages.com.
- Feature #65 - INSTALL documentation shows "known good set" (KGS) of versions,
i.e. versions that have been used in test environment.
1.3 (2013-11-08)
----------------
Big refactoring around middleware configuration, API readability and
documentation.
- Bugfix #57 - ``PathDownloadView`` opens files in binary mode (was text mode).
- Bugfix #48 - Fixed ``basename`` assertion in ``assert_download_response``:
checks ``Content-Disposition`` header.
- Bugfix #49 - Fixed ``content`` assertion in ``assert_download_response``:
checks only response's ``streaming_content`` attribute.
- Bugfix #60 - ``VirtualFile.__iter__`` uses ``force_bytes()`` to support both
"text-mode" and "binary-mode" content.
See https://code.djangoproject.com/ticket/21321
- Feature #50 - Introduced ``django_downloadview.DownloadDispatcherMiddleware``
that iterates over a list of configurable download middlewares. Allows to
plug several download middlewares with different configurations.
This middleware is mostly dedicated to internal usage. It is used by
``SmartDownloadMiddleware`` described below.
- Feature #42 - Documentation shows how to stream generated content (yield).
Introduced ``django_downloadview.StringIteratorIO``.
- Refactoring #51 - Dropped support of Python 2.6
- Refactoring #25 - Introduced ``django_downloadview.SmartDownloadMiddleware``
which allows to setup multiple optimization rules for one backend.
Deprecates the following settings related to previous single-and-global
middleware:
* ``NGINX_DOWNLOAD_MIDDLEWARE_MEDIA_ROOT``
* ``NGINX_DOWNLOAD_MIDDLEWARE_MEDIA_URL``
* ``NGINX_DOWNLOAD_MIDDLEWARE_EXPIRES``
* ``NGINX_DOWNLOAD_MIDDLEWARE_WITH_BUFFERING``
* ``NGINX_DOWNLOAD_MIDDLEWARE_LIMIT_RATE``
- Refactoring #52 - ObjectDownloadView now inherits from SingleObjectMixin and
BaseDownloadView (was DownloadMixin and BaseDetailView).
Simplified DownloadMixin.render_to_response() signature.
- Refactoring #40 - Documentation includes examples from demo project.
- Refactoring #39 - Documentation focuses on usage, rather than API. Improved
narrative documentation.
- Refactoring #53 - Added base classes in ``django_downloadview.middlewares``,
such as ``ProxiedDownloadMiddleware``.
- Refactoring #54 - Expose most Python API directly in `django_downloadview`
package. Simplifies ``import`` statements in client applications.
Splitted nginx module in a package.
- Added unit tests, improved code coverage.
1.2 (2013-05-28)
----------------
Bugfixes and documentation improvements.
- Bugfix #26 - Prevented computation of virtual file's size, unless the file
wrapper implements was_modified_since() method.
- Bugfix #34 - Improved support of files that do not implement modification
time.
- Bugfix #35 - Fixed README conversion from reStructuredText to HTML (PyPI).
1.1 (2013-04-11)
----------------
Various improvements.
Contains **backward incompatible changes.**
- Added HTTPDownloadView to proxy to arbitrary URL.
- Added VirtualDownloadView to support files living in memory.
- Using StreamingHttpResponse introduced with Django 1.5. Makes Django 1.5 a
requirement!
- Added ``django_downloadview.test.assert_download_response`` utility.
- Download views and response now use file wrappers. Most logic around file
attributes, formerly in views, moved to wrappers.
- Replaced DownloadView by PathDownloadView and StorageDownloadView. Use the
right one depending on the use case.
1.0 (2012-12-04)
----------------
- Introduced optimizations for Nginx X-Accel: a middleware and a decorator
- Introduced generic views: DownloadView and ObjectDownloadView
