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

16 OPTIONS implementation.

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

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

authored
71 - Unbound locals now raise a proper :exc:`RuntimeError` instead
72 of an :exc:`AttributeError`.

authored
73 - Mimetype guessing and etag support based on file objects is now
74 deprecated for :func:`flask.send_file` because it was unreliable.
75 Pass filenames instead or attach your own etags and provide a
76 proper mimetype by hand.
1d2a308 @mitsuhiko merged
authored
77 - Static file handling for modules now requires the name of the
78 static folder to be supplied explicitly. The previous autodetection

80 1.0 the old behaviour will continue to work but issue dependency
81 warnings.
82 - fixed a problem for Flask to run on jython.
8569dfe @mitsuhiko Added a PROPAGATE_EXCEPTIONS flag
authored
83 - added a `PROPAGATE_EXCEPTIONS` configuration variable that can be
84 used to flip the setting of exception propagation which previously
85 was linked to `DEBUG` alone and is now linked to either `DEBUG` or
86 `TESTING`.

authored
87 - Flask no longer internally depends on rules being added through the
88 `add_url_rule` function and can now also accept regular werkzeug
89 rules added to the url map.
785e94b @mitsuhiko Added changelog entry and entry into authors file
authored
90 - Added an `endpoint` method to the flask application object which
91 allows one to register a callback to an arbitrary endpoint with
92 a decorator.
0bf777e @mitsuhiko Do not use Date, use Last-Modified. This fixes #164
authored
93 - Use Last-Modified for static file sending instead of Date which
94 was incorrectly introduced in 0.6.
00c5b7a @mitsuhiko added create_jinja_loader
authored
95 - Added `create_jinja_loader` to override the loader creation process.

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

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

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

a3a8439 @mitsuhiko normpath is now used before loading templates
authored
125 - Jinja2 template loading syntax now allows "./" in front of

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

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

jasondavies authored

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

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

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