Djblets 0.8 RC 2 Release Notes

Release date: May 8, 2014


  • Updated locale files for all new strings.


  • Media files for Djblets egg packages can now be built on systems containing multiple versions of Django.

    Patch by Stephen Gallagher.


  • Added styling for a description class, for use at the top of a config form.

  • Added support for custom action icon prefixes.

    This can be set by overriding iconBaseClassName on the ListItemView() subclass. This defaults to djblets-icon-.

  • Added TableView() and TableItemView(), for rendering data in table form.

  • Spinners are now shown on an item when communicating with the server.

  • Action menus on items now have an action-menu CSS class set.

  • Fixed breakages when updating an item’s collection before the item’s render() was called.

  • Removed leading whitespace in the default item template.

  • Boxes now use have more explicit CSS classes.

    Instead of title and main, config forms now use box-title and box-main as the CSS classes. The title is also wrapped in a div with a box-head class, in order to help with styling.


  • Sorting on a non-existing column no longer breaks datagrids.


  • Extension media files are now re-installed when upgrading an extension.

  • TemplateHook subclasses can no longer leak context variables into other templates.

  • Extension packages can now specify to remove source JavaScript, CSS and LessCSS files by setting the following in setup.cfg:

    remove_source_files = 1


  • Templates can now use {{siteconfig_settings}} to support defaults.

    By using siteconfig_settings instead of siteconfig.settings, any defaults set for the siteconfig will be used, if not explicitly set in the database.

  • The settings field in the administration UI is now editable.


  • get_url_params_except() now works with non-ASCII strings.

    Patch by Georgy Dyuldin.


  • get_serializer_for_object() is now reliable.

    Previously, this wasn’t always called for objects in payloads coming from the resource. It was only usable in simple cases. Now it’s called for all objects coming from that resource.

  • Fixed issues with handling Unicode characters in GET query strings when building pagination links.
