0fccfe7 @mitsuhiko Refactored session interface
authored
28 - Refactored session support into a session interface so that
29 the implementation of the sessions can be changed without
30 having to override the Flask class.
5cbfbd2 @mitsuhiko Documented a change in the session system
authored
31 - Empty session cookies are now deleted properly automatically.

authored
38 - Flask in debug mode will now complain with an assertion error if a view
39 was attached after the first request was handled. This gives earlier
40 feedback when users forget to import view code ahead of time.

authored
41 - Added the ability to register callbacks that are only triggered once at
42 the beginning of the first request. (:meth:`Flask.before_first_request`)
ce70131 @mitsuhiko If JSON parsing fails it now issues a BadRequest exception.
authored
43 - Malformed JSON data will now trigger a bad request HTTP exception instead
44 of a value error which usually would result in a 500 internal server
45 error if not handled. This is a backwards incompatible change.
153ecbc @mitsuhiko Implemented instance paths
authored
46 - Applications now not only have a root path where the resources and modules
47 are located but also an instane path which is the designated place to
48 drop files that are modified at runtime (uploads etc.). Also this is
49 conceptionally only instance depending and outside version control so it's
187cb80 @mitsuhiko Documented instance root
authored
50 the perfect place to put configuration files etc. For more information
51 see :ref:`instance-folders`.

authored

56 variable as well as ``SERVER_NAME`` are now properly used by the test client
57 as defaults.

authored
58 - Added :attr:`flask.views.View.decorators` to support simpler decorating of
59 pluggable (class based) views.
d49221b @mitsuhiko The test client now properly pops response contexts on __exit__
authored
60 - Fixed an issue where the test client if used with the with statement did not
61 trigger the execution of the teardown handlers.
ccf4641 @mitsuhiko Added finer control over the session cookie parameters
authored
62 - Added finer control over the session cookie parameters.
32c7e43 @mitsuhiko Simplified HEAD handling for method views
authored
63 - HEAD requests to a method view now automatically dispatch to the `get`
64 method if no handler was implemented.
1e6c5f0 @mitsuhiko Documented flask.ext.
authored
65 - 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. This f...
authored
66 - The context preservation on exceptions is now an integral component of
67 Flask itself and no longer of the test client. This cleaned up some
68 internal logic and lowers the odds of runaway request contexts in unittests.

103 of an :exc:`AttributeError`.

authored
104 - Mimetype guessing and etag support based on file objects is now
105 deprecated for :func:`flask.send_file` because it was unreliable.
106 Pass filenames instead or attach your own etags and provide a
107 proper mimetype by hand.
1d2a308 @mitsuhiko merged
authored
108 - Static file handling for modules now requires the name of the
109 static folder to be supplied explicitly. The previous autodetection
110 was not reliable and caused issues on Google's App Engine. Until
111 1.0 the old behaviour will continue to work but issue dependency
112 warnings.
113 - fixed a problem for Flask to run on jython.
8569dfe @mitsuhiko Added a PROPAGATE_EXCEPTIONS flag
authored
114 - added a `PROPAGATE_EXCEPTIONS` configuration variable that can be
115 used to flip the setting of exception propagation which previously
116 was linked to `DEBUG` alone and is now linked to either `DEBUG` or
117 `TESTING`.

authored
118 - Flask no longer internally depends on rules being added through the
119 `add_url_rule` function and can now also accept regular werkzeug
120 rules added to the url map.
785e94b @mitsuhiko Added changelog entry and entry into authors file
authored
121 - Added an `endpoint` method to the flask application object which
122 allows one to register a callback to an arbitrary endpoint with
123 a decorator.
0bf777e @mitsuhiko Do not use Date, use Last-Modified. This fixes #164
authored
124 - Use Last-Modified for static file sending instead of Date which
125 was incorrectly introduced in 0.6.
00c5b7a @mitsuhiko added create_jinja_loader

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

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

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

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

160 ignored for the static folder.

authored
174 In this case no automatic OPTIONS handling kicks in.
ed16ae2 @mitsuhiko Always register URL rules. This fixes #81
authored
175 - static rules are now even in place if there is no static folder
176 for the module. This was implemented to aid GAE which will
177 remove the static folder if it's part of a mapping in the .yml
178 file.

authored
179 - the :attr:`~flask.Flask.config` is now available in the templates

191 optional and supposed to be used by extensions and applications. If
192 you want to use it, make sure to have `blinker`_ installed.
ed517c7 @jasondavies Minor spelling fixes
jasondavies authored

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

authored
227 - autoescaping is no longer active for all templates. Instead it

authored
252 - test client has not the ability to preserve the request context

254 requests that do not pop the request stack for testing.
