Djblets 0.7.17 Release Notes

Release date: August 15, 2013


  • We now require Django 1.4.6, which is the latest security release in the 1.4.x series.

  • The build-media script is no longer assumed to be executable when building the package.

    Patch by Andrew Grigorev.

  • The tests module is no longer included in the egg.

    Patch by Alex Morega.


  • The extensions media directory is once again based on the package name, and not the display name of the extension.


  • Added a cached_javascript_catalog() view in djblets.util.views, which caches and returns the JavaScript localization catalog provided by Django. This prevents having to regenerate it all the time.

  • Fixed a compatibility issue with Python 2.5 in @controlled_subprocess when trying to kill the process. (Bug #2935)

  • Improved the localizability of a string in @controlled_subprocess.


  • The documentation for ?max-results= now explains the existence of a hard limit of 200 results, so callers aren’t surprised when they try to use larger numbers.

  • The X-Content-Type-Options: nosniff header is passed in API response headers, to prevent IE8 from trying to download payloads. (Bug #2889)
