  • Added support for CSS data URIs. Doesn't yet generate MHTML for IE6/7 support.

  • Added support for CleverCSS
  • Simplified installation process. The media view got completely replaced by MediaMiddleware.
  • Fixed support for output variations (needed by i18n filter to generate the same JS file in different variations for each language)

Version 1.5.1

Upgrade notes: There's a conflict with STATICFILES_URL in Django trunk (1.3). Use DEV_MEDIA_URL instead from now on.

  • DEV_MEDIA_URL should be used instead of MEDIA_URL and STATICFILES_URL, though the other two are still valid for backwards-compatibility

Version 1.5

This is another staticfiles-compatibility release which is intended to allow for writing reusable open-source apps.

Upgrade notes: The CSS URL rewriting scheme has changed. Previously, url() statements in CSS files were treated similar to "absolute" URLs where the root is STATICFILES_URL (or MEDIA_URL). This scheme was used because it was consistent with URLs in Sass. Now URLs are treated as relative to the CSS file. So, if the file css/style.css wants to link to img/icon.png the URL now has to be url(../img/icon.png). Previously it was url(img/icon.png). One way to upgrade to the staticfiles-compatible scheme is to modify your existing URLs.

If you don't want to change your CSS files there is an alternative, but it's not staticfiles-compatible. Add the following to your settings: REWRITE_CSS_URLS_RELATIVE_TO_SOURCE = False

Important: Sass files still use the old scheme (url(img/icon.png)) because this is much easier to understand and allows for more reusable code, especially when you @import other Sass modules and those link to images.

  • Made CSS URL rewriting system compatible with django.contrib.staticfiles
  • Added support for CSS URLs that contain a hash (e.g.: url('webfont.svg#webfontmAfNlbV6')). Thanks to Karl Bowden for the patch!
  • Filter backends now have an additional self.bundle attribute which contains the final bundle name
  • Fixed an incompatibility with Django 1.1 and 1.0 (django.utils.itercompat.product isn't available in those releases)
  • Fixed MediaMiddleware, so it doesn't cache error responses

Version 1.4

This is a compatibility release which prepares for the new staticfiles feature in Django 1.3.

Upgrade notes: Place your app media in a "static" folder instead of a "media" folder. Use DEV_MEDIA_URL (edit: was STATICFILES_URL) instead of MEDIA_URL from now on.

  • App media is now searched in "static" folders instead of "media". For now, you can still use "media" folders, but this might be deprecated in the future (for the sake of having just one standard for reusable apps).
  • DEV_MEDIA_URL (edit: was STATICFILES_URL) should be used instead of MEDIA_URL because the meaning of that variable has changed in Django 1.3.
  • DEV_MEDIA_URL falls back to STATICFILES_URL and GLOBAL_MEDIA_DIRS falls back to STATICFILES_DIRS if undefined (you should still use the former, respectively; this is just for convenience)

Version 1.3.1

  • Improved handling of media variations. This also fixes a bug with using CSS media types in production mode

Version 1.3

  • Added support for setting media type for CSS. E.g.: {% include_media 'bundle.css' media='print' %}
