- update to 0.10.1
- Fixed an issue where ``|tojson`` was not quoting single quotes which
made the filter not work properly in HTML attributes. Now it's
possible to use that filter in single quoted attributes. This should
make using that filter with angular.js easier.
- Added support for byte strings back to the session system. This broke
compatibility with the common case of people putting binary data for
token verification into the session.
- Fixed an issue were registering the same method twice for the same endpoint
would trigger an exception incorrectly.
:ref:`upgrading-to-010` for more information.
- Added ``template_test`` methods in addition to the already existing
``template_filter`` method family.
- Added ``template_global`` methods in addition to the already existing
``template_filter`` method family.
- Set the content-length header for x-sendfile.
- ``tojson`` filter now does not escape script blocks in HTML5 parsers.
- ``tojson`` used in templates is now safe by default due. This was
allowed due to the different escaping behavior.
- Flask will now raise an error if you attempt to register a new function
on an already used endpoint.
- Added wrapper module around simplejson and added default serialization
of datetime objects. This allows much easier customization of how
JSON is handled by Flask or any Flask extension.
- Removed deprecated internal ``flask.session`` module alias. Use
``flask.sessions`` instead to get the session module. This is not to
be confused with ``flask.session`` the session proxy.
- Templates can now be rendered without request context. The behavior is
slightly different as the ``request``, ``session`` and ``g`` objects
will not be available and blueprint's context processors are not
- The config object is now available to the template as a real global and
not through a context processor which makes it available even in imported
templates by default.
- Added an option to generate non-ascii encoded JSON which should result
in less bytes being transmitted over the network. It's disabled by
default to not cause confusion with existing libraries that might expect
``flask.json.dumps`` to return bytestrings by default.
- ``flask.g`` is now stored on the app context instead of the request
- ``flask.g`` now gained a ``get()`` method for not erroring out on non
- ``flask.g`` now can be used with the ``in`` operator to see what's defined
and it now is iterable and will yield all attributes stored.
- ``flask.Flask.request_globals_class`` got renamed to
``flask.Flask.app_ctx_globals_class`` which is a better name to what it
does since 0.10.
- `request`, `session` and `g` are now also added as proxies to the template
context which makes them available in imported templates. One has to be
very careful with those though because usage outside of macros might
- Flask will no longer invoke the wrong error handlers if a proxy
exception is passed through.
- Added a workaround for chrome's cookies in localhost not working
as intended with domain names.
- Changed logic for picking defaults for cookie values from sessions
to work better with Google Chrome.
- Added `message_flashed` signal that simplifies flashing testing.
- Added support for copying of request contexts for better working with
- Removed custom JSON HTTP exception subclasses. If you were relying on them
you can reintroduce them again yourself trivially. Using them however is
strongly discouraged as the interface was flawed.
- Python requirements changed: requiring Python 2.6 or 2.7 now to prepare
for Python 3.3 port.
- Changed how the teardown system is informed about exceptions. This is now
more reliable in case something handles an exception halfway through
the error handling process.
- Request context preservation in debug mode now keeps the exception
information around which means that teardown handlers are able to
distinguish error from success cases.
- Added the ``JSONIFY_PRETTYPRINT_REGULAR`` configuration variable.
- Flask now orders JSON keys by default to not trash HTTP caches due to
different hash seeds between different workers.
- Added `appcontext_pushed` and `appcontext_popped` signals.
- The builtin run method now takes the ``SERVER_NAME`` into account when
picking the default port to run on.
- Added `flask.request.get_json()` as a replacement for the old

- Update to version 0.9:
+ The :func:flask.Request.on_json_loading_failed now returns a JSON formatted
response by default.
+ The :func:flask.url_for function now can generate anchors to the
+ The :func:flask.url_for function now can also explicitly generate
URL rules specific to a given HTTP method.
+ Logger now only returns the debug log setting if it was not set
+ Unregister a circular dependency between the WSGI environment and
the request object when shutting down the request. This means that
environ werkzeug.request will be None after the response was
returned to the WSGI server but has the advantage that the garbage
collector is not needed on CPython to tear down the request unless
the user created circular dependencies themselves.
+ Session is now stored after callbacks so that if the session payload
is stored in the session you can still modify it in an after
+ The :class:flask.Flask class will avoid importing the provided import name
if it can (the required first parameter), to benefit tools which build Flask
instances programmatically. The Flask class will fall back to using import
on systems with custom module hooks, e.g. Google App Engine, or when the
import name is inside a zip archive (usually a .egg) prior to Python 2.7.
+ Blueprints now have a decorator to add custom template filters application
+ The Flask and Blueprint classes now have a non-decorator method for adding
custom template filters application wide,
+ The :func:flask.get_flashed_messages function now allows rendering flashed
message categories in separate blocks, through a category_filter
+ The :meth:flask.Flask.run method now accepts None for host and port
arguments, using default values when None. This allows for calling run
using configuration values, e.g. app.run(app.config.get('MYHOST'),
app.config.get('MYPORT')), with proper behavior whether or not a config
file is provided.
+ Please look into CHANGES for more...

- Update to version 0.8:
* Refactored session support into a session interface so that
the implementation of the sessions can be changed without
having to override the Flask class.
* Empty session cookies are now deleted properly automatically.
* View functions can now opt out of getting the automatic
* HTTP exceptions and Bad Request errors can now be trapped so that they
show up normally in the traceback.
* Flask in debug mode is now detecting some common problems and tries to
warn you about them.
* Flask in debug mode will now complain with an assertion error if a view
was attached after the first request was handled. This gives earlier
feedback when users forget to import view code ahead of time.
* Added the ability to register callbacks that are only triggered once at
the beginning of the first request. (:meth:Flask.before_first_request)
* Malformed JSON data will now trigger a bad request HTTP exception instead
of a value error which usually would result in a 500 internal server
error if not handled. This is a backwards incompatible change.
* Applications now not only have a root path where the resources and modules
are located but also an instane path which is the designated place to
drop files that are modified at runtime (uploads etc.). Also this is
conceptionally only instance depending and outside version control so it's
the perfect place to put configuration files etc. For more information
* Added the APPLICATION_ROOT configuration variable.
* Implemented :meth:~flask.testing.TestClient.session_transaction to
easily modify sessions from the test environment.
* Refactored test client internally. The APPLICATION_ROOT configuration
variable as well as SERVER_NAME are now properly used by the test client
* Added :attr:flask.views.View.decorators to support simpler decorating of
pluggable (class based) views.
* Fixed an issue where the test client if used with the with statement did not
trigger the execution of the teardown handlers.
* Added finer control over the session cookie parameters.
* HEAD requests to a method view now automatically dispatch to the get
method if no handler was implemented.
* Implemented the virtual :mod:flask.ext package to import extensions from.
* The context preservation on exceptions is now an integral component of
Flask itself and no longer of the test client. This cleaned up some
internal logic and lowers the odds of runaway request contexts in unittests.
