13 some problems for package managers.

0fccfe7 @mitsuhiko Refactored session interface
authored
20 - Refactored session support into a session interface so that
21 the implementation of the sessions can be changed without
22 having to override the Flask class.
5cbfbd2 @mitsuhiko Documented a change in the session system
authored
23 - Empty session cookies are now deleted properly automatically.
3b31df8 @mitsuhiko View functions can opt out of the default OPTIONS implementation

25 OPTIONS implementation.

28 - Flask in debug mode is now detecting some common problems and tries to
29 warn you about them.

authored
30 - Flask in debug mode will now complain with an assertion error if a view
31 was attached after the first request was handled. This gives earlier
32 feedback when users forget to import view code ahead of time.
02a1317 @mitsuhiko Added the ability to trigger functions before the first request to th…
authored
33 - Added the ability to register callbacks that are only triggered once at
34 the beginning of the first request. (:meth:`Flask.before_first_request`)
ce70131 @mitsuhiko If JSON parsing fails it now issues a BadRequest exception.
authored
35 - Malformed JSON data will now trigger a bad request HTTP exception instead
36 of a value error which usually would result in a 500 internal server
37 error if not handled. This is a backwards incompatible change.
153ecbc @mitsuhiko Implemented instance paths
authored
38 - Applications now not only have a root path where the resources and modules
39 are located but also an instane path which is the designated place to
40 drop files that are modified at runtime (uploads etc.). Also this is
41 conceptionally only instance depending and outside version control so it's
187cb80 @mitsuhiko Documented instance root
authored
42 the perfect place to put configuration files etc. For more information
43 see :ref:`instance-folders`.
c844d02 @mitsuhiko Added the APPLICATION_ROOT configuration variable which is used by se…

44 - Added the ``APPLICATION_ROOT`` configuration variable.

46 easily modify sessions from the test environment.

authored
47 - Refactored test client internally. The ``APPLICATION_ROOT`` configuration
48 variable as well as ``SERVER_NAME`` are now properly used by the test client
49 as defaults.
ef0f626 @mitsuhiko Added flask.views.View.decorators to automatically decorate class bas…
authored
50 - Added :attr:`flask.views.View.decorators` to support simpler decorating of
51 pluggable (class based) views.
d49221b @mitsuhiko The test client now properly pops response contexts on __exit__
authored
52 - Fixed an issue where the test client if used with the with statement did not
53 trigger the execution of the teardown handlers.
ccf4641 @mitsuhiko Added finer control over the session cookie parameters
authored
54 - Added finer control over the session cookie parameters.
32c7e43 @mitsuhiko Simplified HEAD handling for method views
authored
55 - HEAD requests to a method view now automatically dispatch to the `get`
56 method if no handler was implemented.
1e6c5f0 @mitsuhiko Documented flask.ext.
authored
57 - Implemented the virtual :mod:`flask.ext` package to import extensions from.
c631613 @mitsuhiko Context preserving is now part of Flask and not the test client. Thi…
authored
58 - The context preservation on exceptions is now an integral component of
59 Flask itself and no longer of the test client. This cleaned up some
60 internal logic and lowers the odds of runaway request contexts in unittests.

authored
96 - Mimetype guessing and etag support based on file objects is now
97 deprecated for :func:`flask.send_file` because it was unreliable.
98 Pass filenames instead or attach your own etags and provide a
99 proper mimetype by hand.
1d2a308 @mitsuhiko merged
authored
100 - Static file handling for modules now requires the name of the
101 static folder to be supplied explicitly. The previous autodetection
102 was not reliable and caused issues on Google's App Engine. Until
103 1.0 the old behaviour will continue to work but issue dependency
104 warnings.
105 - fixed a problem for Flask to run on jython.
8569dfe @mitsuhiko Added a PROPAGATE_EXCEPTIONS flag
authored
106 - added a `PROPAGATE_EXCEPTIONS` configuration variable that can be
107 used to flip the setting of exception propagation which previously
108 was linked to `DEBUG` alone and is now linked to either `DEBUG` or
109 `TESTING`.
99be2ec @mitsuhiko Flask no longer internally depends on rules being added through the a…
authored
110 - Flask no longer internally depends on rules being added through the
111 `add_url_rule` function and can now also accept regular werkzeug
112 rules added to the url map.
785e94b @mitsuhiko Added changelog entry and entry into authors file
authored
113 - Added an `endpoint` method to the flask application object which
114 allows one to register a callback to an arbitrary endpoint with
115 a decorator.
0bf777e @mitsuhiko Do not use Date, use Last-Modified. This fixes #164
authored
116 - Use Last-Modified for static file sending instead of Date which
117 was incorrectly introduced in 0.6.
00c5b7a @mitsuhiko added create_jinja_loader

115d31d @mitsuhiko More documentation updates

121 of a request regardless of whether an exception occurred. Also the behavior
122 for `after_request` was changed. It's now no longer executed when an exception

authored
124 - Implemented :func:`flask.has_request_context`

132 are no messages in the session.
115d31d @mitsuhiko More documentation updates
authored
133 - `before_request` handlers are now able to abort requests with errors.
f5ec995 @mitsuhiko Added blueprint specific error handling
authored
134 - it is not possible to define user exception handlers. That way you can
135 provide custom error messages from a central hub for certain errors that
136 might occur during request processing (for instance database connection
137 errors, timeouts from remote resources etc.).
138 - Blueprints can provide blueprint specific error handlers.
ee001e1 @SimonSapin Add a link to pluggable views docs in the changelog.
SimonSapin authored

147 not exposing all valid methods in the `Allow` header.
a3a8439 @mitsuhiko normpath is now used before loading templates
authored
148 - Jinja2 template loading syntax now allows "./" in front of

authored

152 ignored for the static folder.

authored
166 In this case no automatic OPTIONS handling kicks in.
ed16ae2 @mitsuhiko Always register URL rules. This fixes #81
authored
167 - static rules are now even in place if there is no static folder
168 for the module. This was implemented to aid GAE which will
169 remove the static folder if it's part of a mapping in the .yml
170 file.
aa3d839 @mitsuhiko Config is now available in templates, context processors no longer ov…
authored
171 - the :attr:`~flask.Flask.config` is now available in the templates

187 method.
7680d52 @mitsuhiko Added support for subdomain bound modules
authored
188 - modules can now register for a subdomain instead of just an URL
189 prefix. This makes it possible to bind a whole module to a
190 configurable subdomain.

7599046 @mitsuhiko Started working on refactoring Jinja integration
authored
219 - autoescaping is no longer active for all templates. Instead it
220 is only active for ``.html``, ``.htm``, ``.xml`` and ``.xhtml``.

authored
244 - test client has not the ability to preserve the request context
245 for a little longer. This can also be used to trigger custom
246 requests that do not pop the request stack for testing.
