Djblets 0.6.5 Release Notes

Release date: November 20, 2010


  • MEDIA_SERIAL is now used for all the images in the datagrid template.

    Patch by Ben Hollis.


  • Added a @root_url decorator for use with get_absolute_url implementations, which appends SITE-ROOT to any returned URLs.

  • Added a CounterField for atomically updating counters.

    CounterField can be used to atomically increment or decrement an integer stored in the database, on individual models or on many models at a time. It’s intended to substitute for potentially expensive or numerous SQL queries that retrieve counts of objects.

  • Updated the custom fields for Django 1.2 multi-database compatibility.


  • Fixed a bug in serializing ‘long’ values in XML.
  • Resources now Vary on HTTP Accept, meaning that the browser won’t cache the wrong response type when accessing the same resource with two different requested mimetypes.
  • Reduced the SQL query count for resources.
  • Fixed problems that could occur with URLs when serializing objects in a list and when returning links.
