- Update to Version 0.11.1
- Fixed a bug that prevented ``FLASK_APP=foobar/__init__.py`` from working. See
pull request ``#1872``.
- Update to Version 0.11
- Added support to serializing top-level arrays to :func:`flask.jsonify`. This
introduces a security risk in ancient browsers. See
:ref:`json-security` for details.
- Added before_render_template signal.
- Added `**kwargs` to :meth:`flask.Test.test_client` to support passing
additional keyword arguments to the constructor of
- Added ``SESSION_REFRESH_EACH_REQUEST`` config key that controls the
set-cookie behavior. If set to ``True`` a permanent session will be
refreshed each request and get their lifetime extended, if set to
``False`` it will only be modified if the session actually modifies.
Non permanent sessions are not affected by this and will always
expire if the browser window closes.
- Made Flask support custom JSON mimetypes for incoming data.
- Added support for returning tuples in the form ``(response, headers)``
from a view function.
- Added :meth:`flask.Config.from_json`.
- Added :attr:`flask.Flask.config_class`.
- Added :meth:`flask.config.Config.get_namespace`.
- Templates are no longer automatically reloaded outside of debug mode. This
can be configured with the new ``TEMPLATES_AUTO_RELOAD`` config key.
- Added a workaround for a limitation in Python 3.3's namespace loader.
- Added support for explicit root paths when using Python 3.3's namespace
- Added :command:`flask` and the ``flask.cli`` module to start the local
debug server through the click CLI system. This is recommended over the old
``flask.run()`` method as it works faster and more reliable due to a
different design and also replaces ``Flask-Script``.
- Error handlers that match specific classes are now checked first,
thereby allowing catching exceptions that are subclasses of HTTP
exceptions (in ``werkzeug.exceptions``). This makes it possible
for an extension author to create exceptions that will by default
result in the HTTP error of their choosing, but may be caught with
a custom error handler if desired.
- Added :meth:`flask.Config.from_mapping`.
- Flask will now log by default even if debug is disabled. The log format is
now hardcoded but the default log handling can be disabled through the
``LOGGER_HANDLER_POLICY`` configuration key.
- Removed deprecated module functionality.
- Added the ``EXPLAIN_TEMPLATE_LOADING`` config flag which when enabled will
instruct Flask to explain how it locates templates. This should help
users debug when the wrong templates are loaded.
- Enforce blueprint handling in the order they were registered for template
- Ported test suite to py.test.
- Deprecated ``request.json`` in favour of ``request.get_json()``.
- Add "pretty" and "compressed" separators definitions in jsonify() method.
Reduces JSON response size when JSONIFY_PRETTYPRINT_REGULAR=False by removing
unnecessary white space included by default after separators.
- JSON responses are now terminated with a newline character, because it is a
convention that UNIX text files end with a newline and some clients don't
deal well when this newline is missing. See
https://github.com/pallets/flask/pull/1262 -- this came up originally as a
part of https://github.com/kennethreitz/httpbin/issues/168
- The automatically provided ``OPTIONS`` method is now correctly disabled if
the user registered an overriding rule with the lowercase-version
``options`` (issue ``#1288``).
- ``flask.json.jsonify`` now supports the ``datetime.date`` type (pull request
- Don't leak exception info of already catched exceptions to context teardown
handlers (pull request ``#1393``).
- Allow custom Jinja environment subclasses (pull request ``#1422``).
- ``flask.g`` now has ``pop()`` and ``setdefault`` methods.
- Turn on autoescape for ``flask.templating.render_template_string`` by default
(pull request ``#1515``).
- ``flask.ext`` is now deprecated (pull request ``#1484``).
- ``send_from_directory`` now raises BadRequest if the filename is invalid on
the server OS (pull request ``#1763``).
- Added the ``JSONIFY_MIMETYPE`` configuration variable (pull request ``#1728``).
- Exceptions during teardown handling will no longer leave bad application
contexts lingering around.
- Update to Version 0.10.2
- Fixed broken `test_appcontext_signals()` test case.
- Raise an :exc:`AttributeError` in :func:`flask.helpers.find_package` with a
useful message explaining why it is raised when a PEP 302 import hook is used
without an `is_package()` method.
- Fixed an issue causing exceptions raised before entering a request or app
context to be passed to teardown handlers.
- Fixed an issue with query parameters getting removed from requests in
the test client when absolute URLs were requested.
- Made `@before_first_request` into a decorator as intended.
- Fixed an etags bug when sending a file streams with a name.
- Fixed `send_from_directory` not expanding to the application root path
- Changed logic of before first request handlers to flip the flag after
invoking. This will allow some uses that are potentially dangerous but
should probably be permitted.
- Fixed Python 3 bug when a handler from `app.url_build_error_handlers`
reraises the `BuildError`.
- Implement update-alternatives
* Thu Oct 24 2013 firstname.lastname@example.org
- Require python-setuptools instead of distribute (upstreams merged)
* Mon Sep 09 2013 email@example.com
- add dependency on itsdangerous
* Tue Jun 25 2013 firstname.lastname@example.org
- 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
* Fri Nov 16 2012 email@example.com
- Disable testsuite on SLE_11_SP2
* Thu Nov 15 2012 firstname.lastname@example.org
- 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.
