0.4 - 2012-10-19

Quite a big release this one. Several new features have been added since the 0.3 release series:

  • Better support for digital products. Additional fields added to product class model.
  • HTML editing within the dashboard
  • A new email dashboard
  • Major refactor of the offers module and test suite
  • Product stock alerts: customers can request an alert when when a product comes back into stock
  • Customer notifications: an API and inbox for sending users notifications


Four apps have new migrations. If you subclass these apps in your project, you will need to create a new schema migration for each to pick up the upstream changes.

  • Basket:
    • A price_excl_tax has been added to basket.Line. This is useful for applications that use dynamic pricing where both the price with and without tax needs to be stored.
  • Catalogue:
    • A requires_shipping field has been added to catalogue.ProductClass to facilitate better support for digital products (that don't require shipping).
    • The code field of catalogue.Option now has a unique index.
  • Customer:
    • New models for stock alerts and notifications
    • The email_subject_template field from customer.CommunicationEventType is now nullable.
  • Order:
    • An offer_name field has been added to order.OrderDiscount so retain audit information on discounts after offers are deleted.

Please ask on the mailing list if any other problems are encountered.

There are 3 new migrations in the catalogue app. If you have a local version, you will need to run:

./ schemamigration catalogue --auto

to pick up the changes in Oscar's catalogue app.

Breaking changes

A new setting OSCAR_MAIN_TEMPLATE_DIR has been introduced as the template structure has been altered. This requires your TEMPLATE_DIRS setting to be altered to include this folder, eg:

from oscar import OSCAR_MAIN_TEMPLATE_DIR

If you want to extend one of Oscar's templates, then use:

# base.html
{% extends 'oscar/base.html' %}

instead of:

# base.html
{% extends 'templates/base.html' %}

0.2.2 - 13 July 2012

Fixes a bug with applying absolute-discount benefits

0.2.1 - 09 July 2012

Mainly small bug-fixes to templates and javascript.

0.2 - 01 June 2012

Many components have been rewritten since 0.1 - Oscar is much more of a complete package now. New features include:

  • Dashboard for managing catalogue, offers, stock, vouchers and more. This includes statistics pages to track performance.
  • Sample templates, CSS and JS to get a shop up and running in a minutes.
  • Updated documentation.
  • Reworking of shipping methods.
  • Automatic up-selling on the basket page. We now inform the user if they partially qualify for an offer.

The documentation still needs more work which we'll do over the next week or two.


  • Initial release - used in production by two major applications at Tangent but still quite rough around the edges. Many features were implemented directly in the applications rather than using a feature from oscar.
  • Docs are a bit stale and need updating in 0.2
