Flask Changelog

Here you can see the full list of changes between each Flask release.

Version 0.6

Release date to be announced, codename to be decided.

Version 0.5.1

Bugfix Release, released on July 6th 2010

  • fixes an issue with template loading from directories when modules where used.

Version 0.5

Released on July 6th 2010, codename Calvados

  • fixed a bug with subdomains that was caused by the inability to specify the server name. The server name can now be set with the SERVER_NAME config key. This key is now also used to set the session cookie cross-subdomain wide.
  • autoescaping is no longer active for all templates. Instead it is only active for .html, .htm, .xml and .xhtml. Inside templates this behaviour can be changed with the autoescape tag.
  • refactored Flask internally. It now consists of more than a single file.
  • flask.send_file() now emits etags and has the ability to do conditional responses builtin.
  • (temporarily) dropped support for zipped applications. This was a rarely used feature and led to some confusing behaviour.
  • added support for per-package template and static-file directories.
  • removed support for create_jinja_loader which is no longer used in 0.5 due to the improved module support.
  • added a helper function to expose files from any directory.

Version 0.4

Released on June 18th 2010, codename Rakia

  • added the ability to register application wide error handlers from modules.
  • after_request() handlers are now also invoked if the request dies with an exception and an error handling page kicks in.
  • test client has not the ability to preserve the request context for a little longer. This can also be used to trigger custom requests that do not pop the request stack for testing.
  • because the Python standard library caches loggers, the name of the logger is configurable now to better support unittests.
  • added TESTING switch that can activate unittesting helpers.
  • the logger switches to DEBUG mode now if debug is enabled.

Version 0.3.1

Bugfix release, released on May 28th 2010

  • fixed a error reporting bug with flask.Config.from_envvar()
  • removed some unused code from flask
  • release does no longer include development leftover files (.git folder for themes, built documentation in zip and pdf file and some .pyc files)

Version 0.3

Released on May 28th 2010, codename Schnaps

  • added support for categories for flashed messages.
  • the application now configures a logging.Handler and will log request handling exceptions to that logger when not in debug mode. This makes it possible to receive mails on server errors for example.
  • added support for context binding that does not require the use of the with statement for playing in the console.
  • the request context is now available within the with statement making it possible to further push the request context or pop it.
  • added support for configurations.
