Commits

v4.0.3 - September 23rd, 2015

Compatibility notes:

  • each iteration with undefined values has been restored to the 3.0 behaviors. Helper calls with undefined context values will now execute against an arbitrary empty object to avoid executing against global object in non-strict mode.
  • ] can now be included in [] wrapped identifiers by escaping with \. Any [] identifiers that include \ will now have to properly escape these values.

  • #404 - Add named child helpers that can be referenced by block helpers
  • Escape = in HTML content - 83b8e84
  • Drop AST constructors in favor of JSON - 95d84ba
  • Pass container rather than exec as context - 9a2d1d6
  • Add ignoreStandalone compiler option - ea3a5a1
  • Ignore empty when iterating on sparse arrays - 06d515a

  • Simplify object assignment generation logic - 77e6bfc
  • Bulletproof AST.helpers.helperExpression - 93b0760
  • Always return string responses - 8e868ab

  • Add with block parameter support - 2a85106
  • Fix escaping of non-javascript identifiers - 410141c
  • Fix location information for programs - 93faffa

Compatibility notes:

  • Depthed paths are now conditionally pushed on to the stack. If the helper uses the same context, then a new stack is not created. This leads to behavior that better matches expectations for helpers like if that do not seem to alter the context. Any instances of ../ in templates will need to be checked for the correct behavior under 4.0.0. In general templates will either reduce the number of ../ instances or leave them as is. See #1028.
  • The = character is now HTML escaped. This closes a potential exploit case when using unquoted attributes, i.e. <div foo={{bar}}>. In general it's recommended that attributes always be quoted when their values are generated from a mustache to avoid any potential exploit surfaces.
  • AST constructors have been dropped in favor of plain old javascript objects
  • The runtime version has been increased. Precompiled templates will need to use runtime of at least 4.0.0.

  • Expose escapeExpression on the root object - 980c38c

  • Remove nested function eval in blockHelperMissing - 6f22ec1
  • Fix compiler program de-duping - 9e3f824

Compatibility notes:

Commits

v2.0.0-alpha.1 - February 10th, 2014

  • #336 - Add whitespace control syntax (@kpdecker)
  • #535 - Fix for probable JIT error under Safari (@sorentwo)

  • #571 - uglify upgrade breaks compatibility with older versions of node
  • #587 - Partial inside partial breaks?

Compatibility notes:

  • The project now includes separate artifacts for AMD, CommonJS, and global objects.
    • AMD: Users may load the bundled handlebars.amd.js or handlebars.runtime.amd.js files or load individual modules directly. AMD users should also note that the handlebars object is exposed via the default field on the imported object. This gist provides some discussion of possible compatibility shims.
    • CommonJS/Node: Node loading occurs as normal via require
    • Globals: The handlebars.js and handlebars.runtime.js files should behave in the same manner as the v1.0.12 / 1.0.0 release.
  • Build artifacts have been removed from the repository. npm, components/handlebars.js, cdnjs, or the builds page should now be used as the source of built artifacts.
  • Context-stored helpers are now always passed the options hash. Previously no-argument helpers did not have this argument.

Commits

v1.0.12 / 1.0.0 - May 31 2013

  • #515 - Add node require extensions support (@jjclark1982)
  • #517 - Fix amd precompiler output with directories (@blessenm)
  • #433 - Add support for unicode ids
  • #469 - Add support for ? in ids

  • #437 - Require matching brace counts in escaped expressions
  • Merge passed partials and helpers with global namespace values

  • Docs updates

Compatibility notes:

  • The parser is now stricter on {{{, requiring that the end token be }}}. Templates that do not follow this convention should add the additional brace value.
  • Code that relies on global the namespace being muted when custom helpers or partials are passed will need to explicitly pass an undefined value for any helpers that should not be available.
  • The compiler version has changed. Precompiled templates with 1.0.12 or higher must use the 1.0.0 or higher runtime.

Prior Versions

When upgrading from the Handlebars 0.9 series, be aware that the signature for passing custom helpers or partials to templates has changed.

Instead of:

template(context, helpers, partials, [data])

Use:

template(context, {helpers: helpers, partials: partials, data: data})
