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
authored
15 - View functions can now opt out of getting the automatic
16 OPTIONS implementation.

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

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

authored
36 - Implemented :meth:`~flask.testing.TestClient.session_transaction` to
37 easily modify sessions from the test environment.

authored
38 - Refactored test client internally. The ``APPLICATION_ROOT`` configuration
39 variable as well as ``SERVER_NAME`` are now properly used by the test client
40 as defaults.
ef0f626 @mitsuhiko Added flask.views.View.decorators to automatically decorate class bas…
authored
41 - Added :attr:`flask.views.View.decorators` to support simpler decorating of
42 pluggable (class based) views.
d49221b @mitsuhiko The test client now properly pops response contexts on __exit__
authored
43 - Fixed an issue where the test client if used with the with statement did not
44 trigger the execution of the teardown handlers.
ccf4641 @mitsuhiko Added finer control over the session cookie parameters
authored
45 - Added finer control over the session cookie parameters.
32c7e43 @mitsuhiko Simplified HEAD handling for method views
authored
46 - HEAD requests to a method view now automatically dispatch to the `get`
47 method if no handler was implemented.
1e6c5f0 @mitsuhiko Documented flask.ext.
authored
48 - 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
49 - The context preservation on exceptions is now an integral component of
50 Flask itself and no longer of the test client. This cleaned up some
51 internal logic and lowers the odds of runaway request contexts in unittests.

86 of an :exc:`AttributeError`.

authored
87 - Mimetype guessing and etag support based on file objects is now
88 deprecated for :func:`flask.send_file` because it was unreliable.
89 Pass filenames instead or attach your own etags and provide a
90 proper mimetype by hand.
1d2a308 @mitsuhiko merged
authored
91 - Static file handling for modules now requires the name of the
92 static folder to be supplied explicitly. The previous autodetection
93 was not reliable and caused issues on Google's App Engine. Until
94 1.0 the old behaviour will continue to work but issue dependency
95 warnings.
96 - fixed a problem for Flask to run on jython.
8569dfe @mitsuhiko Added a PROPAGATE_EXCEPTIONS flag
authored
97 - added a `PROPAGATE_EXCEPTIONS` configuration variable that can be
98 used to flip the setting of exception propagation which previously
99 was linked to `DEBUG` alone and is now linked to either `DEBUG` or
100 `TESTING`.
99be2ec @mitsuhiko Flask no longer internally depends on rules being added through the a…
authored
101 - Flask no longer internally depends on rules being added through the
102 `add_url_rule` function and can now also accept regular werkzeug
103 rules added to the url map.
785e94b @mitsuhiko Added changelog entry and entry into authors file
authored
104 - Added an `endpoint` method to the flask application object which
105 allows one to register a callback to an arbitrary endpoint with
106 a decorator.
0bf777e @mitsuhiko Do not use Date, use Last-Modified. This fixes #164
authored
107 - Use Last-Modified for static file sending instead of Date which
108 was incorrectly introduced in 0.6.
00c5b7a @mitsuhiko added create_jinja_loader
authored
109 - Added `create_jinja_loader` to override the loader creation process.
34a4947 @mitsuhiko Documented some changes in config handling.

115d31d @mitsuhiko More documentation updates

112 of a request regardless of whether an exception occurred. Also the behavior
113 for `after_request` was changed. It's now no longer executed when an exception
114 is raised. See :ref:`upgrading-to-new-teardown-handling`

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

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

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

143 ignored for the static folder.

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

jasondavies authored

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

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

362cf49 @mitsuhiko Documented the create_jinja_loader removal

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