TurboGears Changelog

1.5.2 (...):

Features

  • The template parameter passed to expose and view.render may now be a callable. It will then be called to get the actual template name. This allows choosing templates more dynamically based on custom rules.

Fixes

  • Made translation of Genshi templates work again.
  • Minor fixes in the i18n module and data model.
  • Adapted VirtualPathDispatcher to current CherryPy version.
  • Made the visit manager and SQLAlchemy identity provider a bit more robust.
  • Adapter requirement checks to newer versions of upstream projects.
  • Fixed a bug that could occur when more than one column was auto joined in a paginated data grid.

1.5.1 (November 26, 2011):

Features

  • TurboGears now supports CherryPy 3.2 and deployment via the WSGI protocol; the documentation shows the integration with various WSGI enabled web servers.
  • The new configuration setting engine.start can be set to False in order to prevent the CherryPy server from starting together with TurboGears, since this is not needed any more when serving TurboGears applications via WSGI. There is also a new setting engine.block that can be set to False when you want to start the CherryPy server, but not block the execution of the main thread. These two settings are False by default when environment is set to embedded, otherwise their default value is True.
  • The start_server() method in the command module now returns the WSGI application so that it can be easily used in a WSGI script file.
  • The new visit.cookie.httponly configuration option can be set to True in order to specify that the visit cookie shall only be transfered in HTTP requests, and shall not be accessible through JavaScript.

Fixes

  • Added restrictions to the required packages when running with older Python versions, since some upstream packages do not support these Python versions any more. TurboGears 1.5.1 still supports all Python versions from 2.4 up to 2.7.
  • Made tg.fancy_exception work properly with CherryPy 3.1 and higher.

1.5 (July 14, 2011):

Changes

  • Adaption of links to the new website.
  • Inactive sources are now removed from the identity configuration.
  • Let nested access in DataGrids return None if child items are None (#2534).
  • Collect strings only from Genshi files in the templates directory. Otherwise, if there are HTML files which are not Genshi templates, tg-admin i18n collect would throw errors (SF #31). New command line option --template-dir for setting the name of templates directories.
  • Support more variants of printing help (for commands) with tg-admin (#1072).
  • The tables of a quickstarted project can now be created with a given prefix via a tg-admin quickstart option (#1249).
  • Print requirements only once with tg-admin info.
  • Since the default Genshi output doctype is strict, we now also use a strict template doctype by default.

Fixes

  • The paginate decorator did not work properly with newer SQLAlchemy versions when using column prefixes and the automatic joins did not work with older SQLAlchemy versions.
  • Overall compatibility with SQLAlchemy 0.7.
  • The identity system now works properly with SQLObject 1.1.1.
  • Require suitable SQLObject version for Python 2.4.
  • Overall compatibility with Python 2.7.2.
  • Avoid duplicate processing of parameters at external redirects (#2451).
  • SecureObject didn’t proxy attribute assignments (#2535).
  • Better error message when loading identity provider plugins failed.
  • Made identity redirection work again and compatible with TG 1.1 (SF #24).
  • Fixed a visit configuration issue reported on the mailing list.
  • Properly adjusted proxy tools config settings to CherryPy 3.
  • We now make sure the server.webpath setting is either empty or has a slash at the beginning but no slash at the end. We also make sure the global startup.webpath and the server.webpath setting in the configuration are equal (used to be different which was confusing).
  • Better integration of the server.webpath setting with CherryPy. The trainling slash tool will work properly now (#2550).
  • We now follow CherryPy 3 tools and logging which use login as request attribute for the user name instead of user_name.
  • Made the virtual path dispatcher behave better if we are running behind a forwarding proxy.
  • tg-admin i18n collect did not find master template (SF #27).
  • Removed “language” attribute from <script> tags generated by widgets.
  • Fixed wrong spelling of identity.http_auth_realm in the config file.
  • Removed unsupported options from command parser.
  • Import simplejson from the standard library if possible.

1.5b2 (January 31, 2011):

Fixes

  • Default identity model classes/tables have been added to the SQLAlchemy identity provider (#1453). These existed so far only for SQLObject. The test suite now also covers the SQLAlchemy identity provider.

Changes

  • To avoid confusion, the json.py toplevel module of quickstarted projects has been renamed to jsonify.py, because the Python 2.6 standard libary now has a package with the json name that would be hidden by the project package. Furthermore, the new name indicates better that this module is actually the project specific version of the turbojson.jsonify module.

Features

  • In addition to CherryPy 3.1.2, TurboGears 1.5b2 now supports CherryPy 3.2.

1.5b1 (December 19, 2010):

TurboGears 1.5b1 includes all features, fixes and improvements available in TurboGears 1.1.2. In addition to that, it involves the following most noticeable changes and features and some more:

Changes

  • TurboGears 1.5 is now based on CherryPy 3 instead of CherryPy 2. This brings much better performance and many other advantages. See http://www.cherrypy.org/wiki/WhatsNewIn30 for details. However, a lot of things have changed in CherryPy 3, and this has also some impact on TurboGears and its configuration settings. See http://docs.turbogears.org/1.5/Upgrade and http://www.cherrypy.org/wiki/UpgradeTo30 for the details.
  • CherryPy now provides dummy request and response objects as simply cherrypy.request, cherrypy.response. The dummy versions of these and deprecated features have been removed from turbogears.testutil.
  • The configuration is now separated into server configuration (also called site or global configuration) and application configuration. The former config entries apply serve-wide, while the latter entries only apply to specific mounted applications. You declare application config settoings by writing using the path as a section header.
  • The config.get method is now request-aware, to ensure that the proper config value is returned for the current application (only important when mounting multiple applications).
  • Requests now have a stage attribute to tell you where they are in the processing steps.
  • The reloader is no longer monkey-patched; the reloader of CherryPy 3 works just fine.
  • MonkeyDecodingFilter has been removed. It’s no longer needed now that the NestedVariablesHook runs after cherrypy.tools.decode.
  • Visit is now implemented as a CherryPy tool instead of a filter.
  • Removed startup.get_object_trail, as it’s no longer being used.
  • startup.SimpleWSGIServer has been removed. Use cherrypy.wsgi.CPWSGIServer instead.
  • startup.startTurboGears and startup.stopTurboGears have been renamed to startup.start_turbogears and startup.stop_turbogears
  • The SafeMultipartFilter was not ported from TurboGears 1.1 to 1.5, since it was a backport of CherryPy 3.1 functionality. You should use cherrypy.lib.safemime instead.
  • The deprecated turbogears.feed package has been removed. You can use the TurboFeeds extension instead (http://pypi.python.org/pypi/TurboFeeds).

1.1.2 (December 19, 2010):

Fixes

  • Translation with Google in the admi18n tool was broken. Switched to a more official anb stable Google API.
  • The paginate decorator did not work properly with newer SQLAlchemy versions when using column prefixes.
  • Fixed race condition issue with user login (#2494).
  • SecureObject did not proxy CherryPy attributes (#2483).
  • Fixed logging problems with multiple config files (#2490).
  • Adaptions for newer versions of PEAK-Rules.

Features

  • Allow custom attrwrapper and data as list, tuple or dict in DataGrid (#2478).
  • The paginate decorator automatically joins tables if necessary for sorting.
  • Erroneous plugins could cause unserviceable error messages. We now output more informative warnings instead. Some other error messages have also been improved, e.g. when using JSLinks, but Kid is not installed.

Changes

  • The new features and improvements in the external tgscheduler package that had been sourced out have been backported to turbogears.scheduler. Particularly, you can now get the task list, rename tasks, add tasks with a cron-like syntax, and the package works properly with Python 2.6 and 2.7.
  • TurboGears 1.1.2 now requires the new and improved TurboJson 1.3 that also works with recent PEAK-Rules versions.
  • The Toolbox now uses Genshi templates instead of Kid templates.
  • Added Kid as requirement again, since it’s still needed for widget templates and therefore indirectly also for i18n (#2518). Only TurboGears 1.5 will be fully independent of Kid, since its widgets can use Genshi templates.
  • Moved getting default values from adjust_value() to display since this works better with inheritance (#2477).

1.1.1 (March 21, 2010):

Fixes

  • When collecting translatable strings (via command line or toolbox), gettext calls in Genshi templates had been disregarded (#732).
  • It was not possible to enter Null values for optional fields using Catwalk. Some fixes were made to solve this, particularly for numeric fields (#760).
  • Primary key strings did not work properly with Catwalk when updating (#1029).
  • Better error message in Catwalk if foreign key cannot be found (#1412).
  • SelectionField did not format values being rendered in template (#1314).
  • ToscaWidget resources listed in the tg.include_widgets setting were not injected into the page header (#2025).
  • Collect translatable strings from explicit gettext function calls in Genshi templates (#2368), and added the _() function to the template namespace.
  • When mapping classes with __init__ method using database.session_mapper, you could get an AttributeError (#2386).
  • Fixed problem when calling ET() in a Genshi templates, which is not necessary any more (#2390).
  • A value of 0 was not output in a CheckBoxList (#2418).
  • Widgets in the same module could not have the same class name (#2443).
  • The methods quote_cookie and unquote_cookie in turbogears.util used the url quoting/unquoting mechanism instead of the one used by the Cookie module in the standard lib. This lead to problems with WebTest and potentially could also cause other compatibility issues (#2446).
  • The identity plugin did not work with input from nested forms (#1587).
  • Fixed scheduler shutdown problem with method.sequential (#1702).
  • The JSi18NWidget did not work in 1.1 and has been fixed now (r7020).
  • Pagination did not work with SQLAlchemy 0.6beta1 (r6871).
  • Fixed deprecation warnings for Python >= 2.6 in identity and visit modules.
  • Added default MANIFEST.in to quickstart template to ensure clean builds.

Features

  • The database.session_mapper now takes an optional set_kwargs_on_init parameter allowing you to suppress the automatic setting of keyword args as attributes for instances of the mapped class (#2386).
  • Allowed nested validation schemas to be defined by nesting schema class definitions and allowed schema classes, not only instances, to be attached to form widgets (#2393).
  • Lazy initialization of widget parameters is now possible (#2430).
  • When a widget list is defined in the declarative way, the declared widgets are now kept accessible as attributes (they had been removed before, #2447).
  • Compiled Kid templates are now added when building eggs (#1463).
  • Added the tg-admin kid2genshi command for converting all Kid templates in the project into Genshi templates.

Changes

  • We now set the config switch kid.i18n.run_template_filter by default to True if i18n.run_template filter is enabled and Kid is available (#2392).
  • We now only pass string values as hidden fields in the login form, skipping possible file fields which cannot be passed anyway (#1761).
  • Default logging methods are in place on any Controller, not only on the RootController, and RestMethod inherits from Controller now.

1.1 (October 4, 2009):

Fixes

  • Name error in identity.SecureResource when require attribute not set (r6686).
  • Unit test for model bootstrap functions in standard quickstart template should not run when identity model can not be imported (r6692).
  • When a visitor requested a page shortly before the visit.timeout and then again shortly afterwards, he could sometimes be logged of at the second request because the visit manager had not yet updated the database. This has now been fixed by first looking up visits cached in memory (#2346).
  • Added ‘save_on_init’ as alias for ‘autoadd’ kwarg of database.session_mapper for backward-compatibility and fixed a bug occuring when mapping a class a second time with session_mapper (r6747).
  • Genshi now adds correct doctype declarations to HTML and XHTML. By default, the ‘strict’ variant is used (#1963).
  • Genshi engine now correctly changes the encoding when configured to do so (r6787).
  • Added tests for Genshi template engine integration and separated test for Kid engine in test_view.py from engine-independent tests (r6788).

Features

  • There is a new config setting visit.interval allowing you to change the visit manager time interval for updating the visit table in the database. The setting must be specified in seconds; the default value is 30 seconds (r6751).
  • The genshi.default_doctype configuration setting can now be a dictionary mapping format names to doctype names. For details see the examples in app.cfg in the default quickstart templates (r6787).

Changes

  • Updated PyPI trove classifiers to give stable status and supported Python versions (r6691).
  • PasteScript version requirement is now >= 1.7 for Python 2.6 compatibility (r6691).
  • TurboCheetah is not installed by default anymore (but Cheetah dependency is pulled by PasteScipt). To install TurboGears with TurboCheetah support, use easy_install TurboGears[compat] (r6691).
  • The turbogears.feed package is deprecated and using FeedController will issue a deprecation warning (r6695).
  • The config setting “tg.defaultview” now has the default value “genshi”. This means that to use kid templates, one has to set tg.defaultview = “kid” in the application’s configuration or prefix template names with “kid:” in the expose decorator (r6696).
  • A missing or faulty dburi raises a DatabaseConfigurationError exception in most cases when trying to establish a database connection (r6714).
  • Default identity provider code cleanup and aligning. Changes to identity.*.encryption_algorithm are now effective immediately (r6715).
  • Identity tests now use SqlAlchemyVisitManager (r6716).
  • Instantiating SqlObjectVisitManager fails correctly if visit data model tables can not be created (r6717).
  • Loading the template engine options from the configuration was changed so that all options whose first part of the option name (i.e. everything before the first dot) matches the start of the tempalte plugin name are passed to the template engine when it is instantiated in view.load_engines. This means, for example, that the plugin named “genshi” will receive all genshi.* settings and the “genshi-markup” plugin will recieve those as well and all genshi-markup.* settings too (r6756).
  • expose and view.render now take arbitrary keywords arguments, which are passed as keyword args to the render method of template plugins, which may use them as options for this rendering process. This replaces the mapping keyword arg previously supported by expose and view.render but which was never passed to the template renderer (r6783).
  • The config setting genshi.encoding is now genshi.default_encoding. If you used this setting and it was set to something other than “utf-8”, you need to change your configuration (r6787).
  • New provisional favicon in quickstart templates. This may be replaced again in a 1.1 bugfix release (r6789).

See also the list of contributors for version 1.1rc1.

1.1rc1 (September 20, 2009):

Fixes

  • Elixir quickstart model now supports transparent passwort encryption as well (#2047).
  • Hardcode kid as template engine for feed templates (#2348).
  • Rename ‘commands’ module in quickstarted projects to ‘command’ to avoid conflict with ‘commands’ module from the standard library (#2141).
  • Adaption of the autocompletefield CSS file for fix #1914.
  • .po header lost when merging a .pot including genshi templates (#2256).
  • Lots of test fixes & improvements (r6318, r6623, r6647, r6648, r6652, r6658).
  • SQLAlchemy forward compatibility fixes (r6576).
  • Projects with no identity support do not include superfluous code (e.g. in model.py) and files (login.css and login.html) any more (#2049).
  • Identity failures during a request to a controller exposed with tg_format=json yielded a 500 error instead of 403. Additionally, when no applicable controller method is found, Turbogears now returns HTTP status 404 (#2036).
  • tg-admin update did not detect when a project uses Elixir and would overwrite the model with the standard SQLAlchemy based one (#2046).
  • A “i18n merge” took the last message of the same id, while “i18n compile” took the last nonempty message. To make this consistent, “merge” now also takes the last nonempty message. (As suggested by rejoc in ticket #2258).

Features

  • Backported the TG2 templates to 1.1 (r6611).
  • turbogears.database now supports its own version of a session-aware mapper, since the SQLAlchemy version is deprecated and will be removed in the future (r6638).
  • Added NotAny identity predicate (#1343) and unit tests for predicates (r6311).
  • Improved Number validator by adding a decimals parameter (r6316).
  • Minor standard quickstart model improvements (r6617).
  • Added requirements for tests to quickstart setup file (r6622).
  • Instead of a plugin name you can now specify a class in dotted-path notation for the visit.manager config setting to use a custom visit manager (r6651, thanks to Nic Bellamy fro provding the idea in #2260).
  • Support for JSONification of SQLAlchemy identity model objects in json.py of quickstarted projects plus tests (r6657).
  • Many small improvements to the standard quickstart template files to enhance clarity and conformance to Python coding standards (r6655, r6657).
  • Identity can now initiate HTTP basic authentication. Two new config settings identity.http_basic_auth and identity.http_auth_realm have been added for this purpose and are explained in the standard quickstart app.cfg (r6665).
  • Quickstarted projects now have a unit test case for the bootstrap functions in model.py working for SQLObject and SQLAlchemy based model (r6673).

Changes

  • SQLAlchemy version requirement is now >= 0.4.3 (r6638).
  • Elixir version requirement is now >= 0.6.1 (r6640).
  • Made TG 1.1 completely independent of Session.mapper, but still export it as database.mapper if available (r6633).
  • TGTest now automatically resets turbogears.config after every test (r6568).
  • Default visit manager plugin is now “sqlalchemy” instead of “sqlobject” (r6650).
  • Identity failures again will cause a HTTP status code 403 to be returned. Status 401 is only returned when HTTP basic authentication is used (r6665).

1.1b3 (December 3, 2008):

Fixes

  • Fixed typo in the view base introduced at the last moment in b2 release.
  • Added the .mak file extension to list of supported files for translation in admi18n. (#1795)

1.1b2 (December 2, 2008):

Features

  • New default quickstart template design (#1992).
  • ‘tg-admin quickstart’ supports new ‘–no-identity’ option to quickstart a project without identity non-interactively (#1218).
  • The default login methods in the quickstart template now handles the case when session cookies are disabled by displaying a warning to the user (#1628).
  • The standard quickstart templates define a new command line script entry point ‘bootstrap-<yourpkg>’, which install a script to bootstrap application data. The corresponding function in ‘commands.py’ calls new code in ‘model.py’ to set up tables and optionally add a default user (r5756).
  • ‘turbbogears.scheduler’ now supports a new type of task called ‘SingleTask’, i.e. a task which is executed only once at a specific time (#1710, Daniel Fetchinson & Kevin Horn).
  • A new standard template variable ‘tg_version’ returns the version number of the currently running TurboGears instance (r5449).
  • New config option safempfilter.on to enable the SafeMultipartFilter (see end of ‘app.cfg’ in a quickstarted project for usage example) (r5666).
  • New config option ‘catwalk.session_dir’ to set the directory where the CatWalk controller stores its state (r5733, Leandro Lucarella).
  • New config option ‘genshi.new_text_syntax’ to support the new Genshi text template syntax (r5737, Raphael Slinckx).
  • Template format ‘text’ and ‘plain’ can now be used interchangeably for Kid and Genshi (r5424).
  • i18n now can handle Genshi templates and extract text from them (r5704, r5706).
  • New function ‘absolute_url’, which wraps ‘url’ and returns a full absolute URL, including scheme and host name. Optionally uses two new config settings ‘tg.url_domain’ and ‘tg.url_scheme’ (r5690).
  • HTTP responses with status 204 (No Content) are now supported, to better support REST APIs (#2004, Peter Russell).
  • Added the possibility to order the JS and CSS widgets by setting the ‘order’ keyword argument (r5667).

Changes

  • Toolbox requires tgMochiKit >= 0.2beta (r5485/r5620).
  • Python 2.4 requires wsgiref >= 0.1.2 (r5446).
  • PEAK-Rules requires setuptools >= 0.6c9 (#5483).
  • Projects with SQLObject now require SQLObject >= 10.0.1 (#1765).
  • ‘tgsetup.py’ now lives in the the ‘tools’ directory in each branch (r5466).
  • Misc updates, fixes and minor improvements to the default quickstart templates (r5379, r5465, r5484).
  • ‘testutil.TGTest.tearDown’ stops CherryPy server as well (r5461).
  • The root element of the CalendarDatePicker, AutoCompleteField and AutoCompleteTextField widgets have been changed from DIV to SPAN to allow them to be used inside elements, which can not contain other block-level elements (e.g. SPAN). A class attribute is added to the SPAN element, to allow it to be target by CSS rules easily (r5685).
  • A new erroneousfield class is added to a rendered form when a validation erorr occured (r5668).
  • The ‘turbogears.access’ logger now logs messages that conform to the combined log format (date was added and when remote host name is not available, logs the IP address) (r5725).
  • If you pass fields when initializing a WidgetList, these will now be appended to already existing fields declared in the class (before they had been prepended), and widgetField subclasses now inherit all the fields of their base class (#2014).

Fixes

  • ‘testutil’ now supports SQLObject schemas with mutually referencing tables (r5662, thanks to Matt Wilson).
  • Could not pass path as list to redirect (#2006, Peter Russel).
  • Misc fixes to various modules to handle a missing ORM module gracefully and print a helpfull message when a user tries to start a project which needs an ORM and it can not be imported (r5490, r5491, r5493, r5494, r5495, r5496).
  • Do not set ‘forward_url’ in login method when there are identity errors (r5507).
  • Fix for broken patch for #1961.
  • Having the visit tables in a secondary database did not work (#1717, Toshoi Kuratomi).
  • Set proper ‘text/plain’ content type for plain-text responses (r5424).
  • The default content-type for Genshi template output is now correctly set to ‘text/html’ (r5423).
  • Fix deprecation warning when using ToscaWidgets by not calling retrieve_javascript/css on them in controllers._process_output anymore, since tw takes care of including resources in the template output (r5565).
  • New request filter turbogears.filters.SafeMultipartFilter, which handles requests from semi-broken clients, which omit the trailing CRLF from multipart-MIME messages, e.g. Adobe Flash’s FileReference.upload() (r5666).
  • ‘testutil’ does not choke when trying to load test configuration from a bogus ‘config’ package (r5708).
  • Fix ‘tg-admin update’ command, which was broken due to not passing ‘elixirversion’ to PasteScript (r5732).
  • Correctly drop cross-referencing tables in ‘testutil.DBTest.tearDown’ (r5196).

1.1b1 (September 8, 2008):

Changes

  • Fixed quickstart project unit tests
  • Genshi and SQLAlchemy are now the defaults.
  • Testing is now powered by WebTest, a framework agnostic testing tool (#1762).
  • (Repeating)FieldSet widgets do not enclose the contained form field widgets in a SPAN element any more (#1914).

Features

  • Added full support for multiple databases using SA (#1592).
  • TGWidgets in Genshi templates automatically call ET() on display (#1355).

Fixes

  • FieldStorage can now be optional (#1705).
  • tgMochiKit version selection works again (r4107).
  • FileField renders None as value now, preventing it to try and fetch an equally named column from the database (r4107).
  • When using SQLObject, PackageHub.end() now uses connection.expireAll(), for added safety in a multithreaded environment. (#85).
  • i18n.google_translate function is more robust and correctly decodes HTML entity refs (#1967, Joseph Binney)

1.0.9 (October 16, 2009):

Changes

  • turbogears.validators supports the new formencode.national module.
  • Lists as return values of controllers are handled like generators again.
  • tg-admin i18n collect supports a new option -e|--js-encoding to set the file encoding of the JavaScript source files (r6645).

Fixes

  • Fixed some problems with non-ascci user names and URLs (#1130 and #2118).
  • Static files were not found when project package was part of a larger namespace package (#12).
  • Better error message if validator for option list couldn’t be guessed (#978).
  • Fixed Modeldesigner exception (#1109).
  • Multi-level inheritance did not work in model designer (#1092).
  • The PackageHub for SQLObject now only establishes a connection/transaction when really necessary (fixed tickets #763, #817 and #2160).
  • The tgsetup script failed when find_link was set in .pydistutils.cfg as a single string (#2098).
  • A form widget that is displayed without action parameter now produces an empty action attribute instead of leaving it out which is invalid (#2292).
  • Wrapping the CatWalk controller with identity.SecureObject did not protect catwalk’s sub-controller Browser (#2207).
  • tg-admin sql help produced an error (#2361, thanks to Izhar Firdaus).
  • tg-admin i18n collect DecodingError when collecting strings from JavaScript files with non-ascii characters (#2183).
  • Removed some obsolete code to handle deleting of related joins from CatWalk (#2162, thanks , Daniel Fetchinson).
  • When a visitor requested a page shortly before the visit.timeout and then again shortly afterwards, he could sometimes be logged of at the second request because the visit manager had not yet updated the database. This has now been fixed by first looking up visits cached in memory (#2346).
  • The Genshi Buffet interface is now correctly initialized with the default_encoding setting, not encoding (see end of #1963).
  • It was not possible to enter Null values for optional fields using Catwalk. Some fixes were made to solve this, particularly for numeric fields (#760).
  • Better error message in Catwalk if foreign key cannot be found (#1412).
  • Primary key strings did not work properly with Catwalk when updating (#1029).
  • Pagination did not work with SQLAlchemy >= 0.6.
  • We now only pass string values as hidden fields in the login form, skipping possible file fields which cannot be passed anyway (#1761).
  • Fixed scheduler shutdown problem with method.sequential (#1702).
  • Added default MANIFEST.in to quickstart template to ensure clean builds.

Features

  • Added links to the home pages of the individual packages on the toolbox info page (#1155).
  • TurboGears now makes internal use of the is_active property provided by SQLAlchemy 0.4.9 and newer.
  • Compiled Kid templates are now added when building eggs (#1463).
  • Allowed nested validation schemas to be defined by nesting schema class definitions and allowed schema classes, not only instances, to be attached to form widgets (#2393).

1.0.8 (December 17, 2008):

Changes

  • Charset parameters are now only added to content type headers when the respective mime type supports this (e.g. all “text” types, but not “pdf”).
  • Use “text/html” again instead of “application/xhtml+xml” for XHTML format, as was done in version 1.0.7. Though it is more standards-compliant, IE unfortunately does not cope with this content type, and we want to avoid the problems of content negotiation (see ticket #1998).
  • Updated and fixed the ‘tgsetup.py’ script (#2053).

Fixes

  • Passing a list of arguments to the redirect method did not work anymore since version 1.0.5 and is now working again (#2006).
  • Solved a small problem in the login controller of quickstarted projects since version 1.0.5 that occurred when directly accessing a non-authorized resource.
  • tg-admin toolbox ignored the --config option and adopted problematic config settings from the current project.
  • Fixed an issue with i18n string collection when using the lang option (#2012).
  • Made not_anonymous internally consistent with others predicates (#2029).
  • tg-admin sql did not work with SQLAlchemy versions before 0.4.3 (#2057).
  • Hidden fields are now always put in an invisible ‘div’ section since they must be contained in a block-level element to be valid (X)HTML (#2052).
  • The id of widgets like datagrid could not be changed at render time (#2023).
  • Improved some error messages and warnings.

Features

  • Made content type delivered for a template format configurable with the tg.format_mime_types setting (see problem with XHTML content above).
  • TurboGears 1.0.8 now additionally includes MochiKit version 1.4.2, though version 1.3.1 is still used by default. You can use the newer version by setting tg.mochikit_version or tg_mochikit.version to ‘1.4’ (#2018).
  • Forms have got a new use_name parameter that allows setting the id attribute instead of the name attribute of the form, since the latter is deprecated in HTML and invalid in XHTML (#2052).

1.0.7 (September 15, 2008):

Changes

  • The standard controller method handling identity.failure_url (“/login”) now returns the proper HTTP status code “401 Unauthorized” (instead of “403 Forbidden”) (#1787).
  • The required version of SQLObject was bumped up to 0.10.1 (#1765).
  • tgsetup.py installation script does not set script-dir to “/usr/local/bin” anymore on Unix-like systems (#1317).

Fixes

  • The Label widget now renders attrs which had been missing from its template (Andy Grover) (#1964).
  • The testutil.call_with_request did not work with controller methods which raise redirect (Felix Schwarz) (#1203).
  • “tg-admin i18n” and the adm18n toolbox tool now correctly strip whitespace around strings collected from Kid templates so that they get translated properly (#1695).
  • identity.get_failure_url was not backported from 1.1 branch but used in the identity providers (r5338).
  • XHTML templates were delivered with a content type of “text/html” while it should be “application/xhtml+xml” (r5323, related to #1963).
  • CalendarPicker was positioned wrong when scrolled in IE7 (Nick Murdoch) (#1875).
  • Make paginate work with tg.strict_parameters=False (#1889).
  • i18n.parse_decimal broke when locale is unknown (#1104).
  • feed.FeedController.index now passes keyword args when redirecting to the feed handler methods (#1732).
  • config.config_defaults() should now set package_dir correctly on all platforms (r5328).

1.0.6 (August 26, 2008):

Improvements

  • Visit key can now be retrieved also from the request params (#1927).
  • Added max_limit and max_sort parameters to the paginate decorator and deprecated allow_limit_override (#1908). Since the last version, TurboGears sorts in memory, if sorting with SQL is not possible. Since this may be costly, you can now set limits.
  • TurboGears now respects the SCRIPT_NAME CGI environment variable. This allows better integration with mod_wsgi and other WSGI middleware and more flexibility than using sever.webpath (#1919).
  • TurboGears now also sets request.path_info using a CherryPy filter. This is the same as request.path with both SCRIPT_NAME and server.webpath stripped off.
  • Added a unicode_response attribute to the testutil.BrowsingSession object if an encoding is specified in the Content-Type header. Tests can use this much more safely.
  • If WidgetsList objects are passed in the controller dict, then the CSS and JavaScript for all the widgets in the list will be included (#5190).
  • The forward/backward/goto links in the paginate data grid can now be styled, and the default style shows them as buttons (way easier to click).

Fixes

  • Fixed several problems with server.webath (#1606, #1939, #1957).
  • Improved the login mechanism so that you can use secure logins by setting identity.failure_url and identity.force_external_redirect.
  • url() now handles URLs with existing query strings correctly (#1862).
  • Using something like kid.HTMLSerializer as template format works again.
  • Fixed a problem with setuptools 0.6c9 (#1796).
  • “tg-admin sql status” with SQLAlchemy wrongly complained about columns not being declared as Unicode.
  • Catwalk got foreign key wrong for classes with camel case names.
  • Fixed several problems with toolbox admi18n (#1399, #1941, #1943).

1.0.5 (July 1, 2008):

Fixes and Improvements

  • You can now pass a couple of interesting configuration parameters to TurboJson (e.g. json.ensure_ascii=True, and the default is now False).
  • A new epydoc-based API docs generation script was added.
  • The widget default value can now be a function, similar to options.
  • The default content type for JSON was changed from text/javascript to application/json (#1842).
  • The accept header is now reduced to a single value before it is compared with accept_format (#1842).
  • The content type of the response is now determined from the template format parameter, if not otherwise specified (#1842, #1480).
  • Setting tg_format=json is now allowed even when the format is already JSON by default (#1459).
  • Small improvements in DataGrid, empty headers are now allowed.
  • Small improvements in the DataGrid and PaginateDataGrid templates.
  • Improved paginate and made it work with the latest SQLAlchemy versions. Sorting now works with SQLAlchemy queries and pure Python objects, and nested attributes are supported.
  • Table of contents and PaginateDataGrid added to the widget browser.
  • AutoCompleteField now also works with the MochiKit 1.4 dev version.
  • Added alternate text parameter to ImageButton for better form accessibility.
  • Fixed params attribute of JSI18NWidget.
  • Some association tables did not have primary keys when using SQLAlchemy.
  • Flash messages with commas did not work on some browsers (#1164).
  • The error handler did not return JSON when it had been requested from the original controller using tg_format.
  • tg-admin shell now works with “heredocs” and other cases when the standard input encoding is not defined.
  • tg-admin toolbox did not work when server.socket_host was not set on some platforms (#1713).
  • tg-admin i18n collect did not work with nested packages (#1779).
  • A bug (#1396) made the recursion guard not work correctly and prevented validation to be performed more than once per request.
  • Setting tg.defaultview='genshi' and tg.mochikit_suppress=True raised an exception (#1719).
  • format_decimal in i18n.format now works with num_places=0 (#1647).
  • The FeedController Atom 1.0 template didn’t include proper author (#1730).
  • The quickstarted default app.cfg file now sets the package name (#1631).
  • Under rare circumstances, testutil could use a wrong module name (#1821).
  • Installing ElementTree is not required any more for Python < 2.5.
  • Some more small fixes and improvements of the code base and unit tests.

1.0.4.4 (March 7, 2008):

Changes

  • cherrypy.request.sa_transaction is now always the SQLAlchemy transaction. In the case of SQLAlchemy >= 0.4, this had been set to the SQLAlchemy session before. You should’t use this to explicitly commit or rollback transactions, use database.session.commit() or database.session.rollback() instead.
  • Identities now have a login method creating the link to the visit; this is not done in the provider method validate_identity any more.
  • TurboGears does not use a permanent visit cookie any more by default, i.e. the cookie will now be discarded when the browser is closed (#1729). If you want a permanent cookie to be used, set visit.cookie.permanent to True. The visit.timeout setting controls how long the cookie is valid.

Features

  • Identies now have additional user_id and group_ids attributes.
  • Added an AutoCompleteTextField that can more easily replace an ordinary TextField in a form (the AutoCompleteField is a CompoundWidget).

Fixes

  • Toolbox did not run on projects using Genshi (#1494).
  • Toolbox loading will no more crash on a missing SQLObject import (#1620).
  • The PasteScript bug mentioned in the 1.0.4.1 changelog below has been fixed in PasteScript 1.6.2, so TurboGears requires the new version now (#1624).
  • The new config parameter tg.ignore_parameters allows ignoring other paramers besides tg_random when tg.stric_parameters ist set (#1653).
  • FieldStorageUploadConverter didn’t support not_empty=False (#1705).
  • Fixed tg-admin shell encoding problems (#1714).
  • Template params now always keep their given order (#1718).
  • Compatibility with SQLAlchemy 0.4.3 (#1721).
  • tg-admin shell now runs with Python 2.3 if you install subprocess.
  • Better handling of external redirects.

Florent Aide, Matej Barič, Jorge Godoy, Christoph Zwerschke.

1.0.4.3 (January 31, 2008):

Fixes

  • Added a new config option (app.cfg) which controls the kind of redirection the framework will raise in case of identity errors. By default TG used an internal CherryPy redirect in such cases. But the problem was that if you tried to use a failure url such as https://somewhere then CP raised a 404 error and that was all. Using this new system, you can activate _external_ redirects for identity errors by using the identity.force_external_redirect in app.cfg. This will permit redirecting your clients to any HTTPS url that is managed by an external apache or nginx rewrite rule.
  • Fixed the behavior of tg.mochikit_suppress which wasn’t actually working.
  • Small improvements of the AutoCompleteField (Javascript clean-up; nicer box for auto completions and no garbage when it is empty; cursor jumps to end of text on update; with search_param = '*' you can now pass all form fields to the controller; the spinner can now be suppressed with show_spinner = False; the hidden field is now optional in the Javascript code so that it can be reused if you want to build a simpler TextField based widget; added parameter docs)

Project Updates

SQLObject version has been bumped so TG accepts 0.10.0 final.

Florent Aide, Christoph Zwerschke.

1.0.4.1 (January 20, 2008):

1.0.4 (January 20, 2008):

  • Fixed parameters encoding. A previous patch encoded all characters in the CherryPy parameters to make them utf-8. This comportment has been reverted and unit tests written to ensure CherryPy parameters we receive inside a TG application will alway be unicode.

1.0.4b6 (January 16, 2008):

Changes

  • Fixed remote address inspection in the CherryPy headers because it changed in version 2.3.0.

1.0.4b5 (January 14, 2008):

Changes

1.0.4b4 (January 13, 2008):

Changes

  • Pagination can be disabled by using allow_limit_override and tg_paginate_limit=0, allowing all results been returned on one single page (#1629).

Fixes

  • Fixed the visit cookie which was never resent to client until it expired(#1652).
  • Fixed teardown for SQLObject tables (#1674).
  • Fixed VisitFilter when Identity is on and there are list parameters (#1622).
  • Paginate does a better handling of zeroed limit, avoiding ZeroDivisionError exception (#1629).
  • Added missing logger configuration to quickstarted projects (#1630).
  • Fixed pagination of empty data when a SQL with “group by” is issued (#1641).

1.0.4b3: (December 2, 2007):

Deprecations

  • Paginate default_order has been greatly improved. Use of the default_reversed parameter has been deprecated. It will still be used if it is informed, but a DeprecationWarning will be displayed.

Changes

  • Introduction of tg.mochikit_suppress to prevent the inclusion of the shipped MochiKit 1.3.1. That allows to include custom mochikit versions.
  • PaginateDataGrid template now makes use of paginate attributes to render the links for first/previous/next/last page (#1617).
  • paginate.href_last returns a special URL that allows paginate decorator to compute the correct last page number at server-side (#1617).
  • The start-<project>.py script in a quickstarted project is now only a wrapper for the start() function in a new commands module in the project’s package. The setup.py in new project also creates a console script entry point for this, so easy_install can create a start script when the project’s egg is installed. It also allows to package a default configuration file in the egg. For details see ticket (#1386).
  • Installation of TurboGears now does not require installation of an ORM. Instead, a project that relies on SQLObject or SQLAlchemy will have a setup.py file written with the proper requirements (#1501, #1620).
  • Removed the hard SQLAlchemy/SQLObject dependecies and modified quickstart to render the required ORM as requirement into a projects setup.py.

Features

  • Introduction of tg.mochikit_suppress to (see “Changes”).
  • Workaround in paginate for databases without OFFSET (#1601).
  • The database module exports a mapper which is either session.mapper for SQLAlchemy >= 0.4, or something similar to assign_mapper for SQLAlchemy < 0.4, but compatible with SQLAlchemy 0.4 and Elixir.
  • The tg-admin quickstart command has now an option -r (--svn-repository) allowing automatic creation of the project in the specified SVN repository.
  • Introduction of paginate.redirect_on_out_of_range and paginate.redirect_on_last_page, which determine if paginate decorator should raise a redirect when current page is out of bound and the last page is requested, respectively.
  • Paginate default_order can now be a string or a list of strings. The list of strings is used to specify the ordering of multiple columns. Every string starting with a dash (-) indicates that the column will have its default ordering reversed (#1618).
  • turbogears.url() allows to to create an url with multiple values for the same key (#1456).

Fixes

  • Fixed broken quickstart change (#1595).
  • KID-template string collection for i18n fixed so that it ignores XML processing instructions and comments as well as script and style sections.
  • Fixed SQLAlchemy and Elixir issues (#1458, #1599 and #1604).
  • Fixed issues with tg-admin update on a project in SVN (#1608).
  • Fix pagination of SQLAlchemy Query ordering by backrefs and synonyms’ attributes. It also supports SQLAlchemy 0.4.1, which removed the properties accessor on Mapper (#1582).
  • Ensure paginate links bring the same result when using ordering columns with a custom datagrid template (#1605).
  • Fix pagination of out of bound pages (#1617).
  • tg-admin i18n now supports Unicode strings in Kid templates (#1397).
  • Fixed testutil to properly use the soClasses attribute in the model in order to pick up only the classes defined in this list and not the rest. Thanks to Gregor Horvath for this suggestion. (#1586).
  • Fixed the command line interface to i18n collection. Command line now processes also the templates (#1436).
  • Identity bug when using non-ASCII characters in the URL (#1598, #1407, #1022).

Project Updates

  • TurboCheetah 1.0
  • TurboJson 1.1.2

1.0.4b2 (October 27, 2007):

Changes

  • New quickstart templates for the SQLAlchemy support.
  • Better transaction support.
  • Paginate decorator enhanced SQLAlchemy support.

Features

  • SQLAlchemy 0.4 is now supported, and SQLAlchemy 0.3.10 is required as a minimum (#1483).
  • QuickStart no longer creates sqlobject-history directories for SQLAlchemy projects.
  • “tg-admin sql” is now more powerful for SQLAlchemy (#1418).
  • Paginate allows ordering by attributes from related objects (SQLAlchemy Query objects only) (#1582).
  • JavaScript i18n-features added.

Fixes

  • Rollback SQLAlchemy transaction if a controller method fails, and it has an exception_handler (#1185).
  • sa_rwt (SQLAlchemy run with transaction) refactored to fix some corner cases.
  • Fixed internal pagination ordering, avoiding a potential error when paginating Query objects (SQLAlchemy) and ordering by 4 or more columns (#1508).
  • Fixed pagination of Query objects (SQLAlchemy). The first patch assumed that Query objects have a _query attribute which holds the query object, which is only true for SelectResults objects (#1434).
  • Paginate now works with SQLAlchemy 0.4 (#1591).
  • KID-template string collection for i18n enhanced so it matches the expectations of the i18n-filter.

1.0.4b1 (September 13, 2007):

Changes

  • The cookies should have the same timeout as the session does, this way it is possible to keep users logged in for longer than the time the browser is running (#1406).
  • SQLAlchemy 0.4 support added. The identity part and the SQLAlchemy quickstart model were changed to do this. For the moment only the standard SQLAlchemy model has been changed, the tbig is still not fully compatible with SQLAlchemy 0.4.

Features

  • i18n support for Javascript (for real this time).
  • Allow pagination of multiple variables, simply by using the @paginate decorator multiple times on a particular controller. It maintains backwards compatibility with previous code, but introduces a new template variable: tg.paginates (#1410).
  • Added -o (--sqlobject) option to generate SQLObject template, by Fred Lin.

Fixes

  • SQLAlchemy exception handling and transaction support has been improved and polished.
  • Added proper logging for exceptions that occured during the identity providers. Thoses errors were lost silently before and made it hard to understand from where the problem came.
  • Improved support for the SQLAlchemy command line interface.

Project Updates

  • A lot of unit tests have been fixed to support versions of nose superior to 0.9.2. Paul also took great care to add more unit tests to the SQLAlchemy handling in TG.
  • Now require TurboKid 1.0.3 for Kid support. This will pull out the latest TurboKid that includes fixes for choosing the kid output format.

1.0.3.2 (July 20, 2007):

Fixes

  • Genshi, while internally calling it “variable_lookup”, has a Buffet Engine plugin that expects “lookup_errors”. TG 1.0 and 1.1 look for and pass through only “variable_lookup”, while TG 1.1 has “lookup_errors” in configuration. This helps in error handling with Genshi templates. Patch by Neil Blakey-Milner (#1444).
  • Output format must not be set for other templating engines than Kid, and needs not be set for Kid either. Removed unnecessary imports. Christoph Zwerschke.
  • tg-admin toolbox did not run outside a project directory. Christoph Zwerschke.

Contributors

Neil Blakey-Milner, Christoph Zwerschke

  • cherrypy.request is now available at the variables sent to every template (#1362 by Christoph Zwerschke).
  • SQLAlchemy transaction object is now stored at cherrypy.request.sa_transaction so it can be accessed from the controllers. Patch at #1359 by Janzert.
  • SecureResource now raises an AttributeError when no require attribute is present in the controller class or in the config file. Closes #1336. (Note: This might break some “broken” apps, fortunately a detailed exception is raised advising how to fix it).
  • Slight quickstart CSS modification for tables.
  • Add default CSS to highlight the validation error.
  • Made “flash” block dynamic in quickstart.
  • Session setting is moved to config/app.cfg

  • Schemas are no longer deepcopied to prevent crashing on un-deep-copiable validators (#1333).
  • Fixed bug in tg-admin that caused it not to operate properly on projects deployed as eggs. Patch from #1361 by Christoph Zwerschke.
  • SQLAlchemy auto-commiting fixed in some rare circumstances where sa_rwt was not being called. Patch from #1267 by Paul Johnston.
  • CatWalk now handles customized addRemoveName in SQLObject (#911 by Joost).
  • Using base64.decodestring in visitor.py for 2.3 compatibility (#1279 by Paul Fisher).
  • Config file in quickstarted app now has config option to load identity classes. Thanks to Felix Schwarz (#1255).

  • A number of fixes and minor enhancements to the quickstart templates
  • turbogears.url has a nicer default when you’re not running within a request (ie when you’re in a test)

Project Updates

  • setuptools 0.6c3

Contributors

Fred Lin, Jorge Vargas, Jorge Godoy, Alberto Valverde, Elvelind Grandin, Lee McFadden, Max Ischenko, Joseph Tate, Matthew Bevan, Roger Demetrescu, plus some small fixes from several others and a huge amount of documentation work from Karl Guertin and Adam Jones (in addition to the other contributors already mentioned).

1.0b1 (September 7, 2006):

Changes

  • The CalendarDatePicker will no longer prefer the user’s browser’s language if a language has been explicitly specified (#1056).

Features

  • Calls to gettext inside kid templates are now detected by i18n.
  • Can now pass tg_format in the output dict to override the one set by expose.
  • Can now set the config option sqlalchemy.echo to toggle SQLAlchemy’s query logging.
  • Can now use field_for inside FormFieldContainer templates to get child fields by name.

Fixes

  • You can now conveniently use non-ActiveMapper SQLAlchemy classes with identity (#1041).
  • Identity testing is now easier because the DummyRequest now includes a remote_host.
  • Default identity provider will be created if the request doesn’t have one (#876).
  • Swedish translation file for the calendar has been fixed (#1055).
  • testutil.DBTest will only drop tables that exist (#1094).
  • Added validate_password to the SQLAlchemy identity provider to match the SQLObject one (#1098).
  • Corrected spelling at italian CalendarDatePickers’ i18n files.
  • Fixed a bug with BLOBCols in Model Designer.
  • Exceptions raised when SQLAlchemy flushes are now dispatched with TG’s errorhandling.
  • Can now use format (plus other internal named parameters) as a controller’s method argument name.
  • The toolbox will now launch the browser to point to the same port number as the server is listening at.

Project Updates

  • SyntaxHighlighter 1.4.0
  • setuptools 0.6c2

0.9a9 (August 17, 2006):

Features

  • tg-admin toolbox now accepts a --conf argument.
  • Catwalk now provide some feedback on ajaxcalls
  • The quickstarted welcome page are updated and looks much better

Fixes

  • Adding users with Catwalk should now work
  • Admi18n now works with non-ascii translation and html entities

Project Updates

  • SQLObject 0.7.1dev-r1860
  • PasteScript 0.9.7
  • ConfigObj 4.3.2
  • Nose 0.9
  • TurboJson 0.9.9

0.9a8 (July 21, 2006):

Fixes

  • Some problems with the calendar widget that were introduced in 0.9a7 have been addressed
  • Some people have reported getting an SQLObject 0.8 dev package, which is not at all tested with TurboGears. The setup file for TurboGears will now restrict to < 0.8.

Project Updates

  • Kid 0.9.3 (addresses problems that people had with comments in base templates)
  • setuptools 0.6c1

0.9a7 (July 19, 2006)

Backwards Incompatibilities

  • Former LocalizableJSLink is now CalendarLangFile. New LocalizableJSLink is simpler but backwards-incompatible.
  • Catwalk no longer accepts an allowHost argument. To restrict access to it use Identity.SecureObject instead.

Deprecations

  • Use of “entrys” is now deprecated in the FeedController. You should use “entries” instead.

Features

  • Syntax highlighter is used in the widget browser to make the code snippets look nice (#843)
  • Logging configuration produces better errors and also has access to the RotatingFileHandler and TimedRotatingFileHandler (#866, also fixes #820)
  • The validate decorator now accepts a state_factory parameter which should be a callable that returns the initial state for validation (the same state parameter FormEncode validators use). The final state after validation can be accessed at cherrypy.request.validation_state inside controller methods.
  • tg-admin commands can state if they need to be run in a project dir.
  • Toolbox now uses entrypoints so site-specific tools can be added.
  • tg-admin shell now asks if it should commit changes to the database on exit.
  • Widgets can be listed at the tg.include_widgets config. list to send them to every template (a la tg.mochikit_all).
  • DBTest now drops tables after each test so they don’t interfere with others.
  • Toolbox is now secured using Identity
  • SQLAlchemy support not only works again with the latest SQLAlchemy, but quickstart works properly and “tg-admin sql create” now works for SQLAlchemy databases for the first time.

Fixes

  • The sample-prod.cfg file had an incorrect logging configuration.
  • Simplified visit queue handling which solves some mysterious bugs.
  • Quickstart: model.py now includes SQLObject’s requirements when identity is off.
  • DateTimeConverter now handles dates < 1900.
  • Catwalk now handles gracefully UnicodeCols.
  • Quickstart: start-project.py now detects correct Python binary’s path in the system.
  • Kid’s base templates are now (re)loaded properly.
  • Config file selection is now smarter.
  • tg-admin update now finds correct identity provider.
  • Catwalk now handles InheritableSQLObjects with mixins gracefully.
  • Output encoding wasn’t set based on the config value under some circumstances (#972)

Changes

  • If tg.empty_flash is True in the app’s configuration, then tg_flash = None will be sent to the template when it’s not set. Otherwise it will not be sent at all.
  • Quickstart: Now supports Python 2.3 with PEAK’s [] decorator syntax.
  • DateTimeConverter validator now raises Invalid(‘empty’) exceptions properly and uses the usual not_empty parameter. allow_empty is deprecated.

0.9a6 (May 9, 2006)

Backwards Incompatibilities

  • i18n.runTemplateFilter in the config file has been renamed i18n.run_template_filter (#796)
  • For people using FastData (experimental): get_add_url, get_edit_url and get_delete_url all are passed the row instead of the ID now, allowing you to use something other than the ID if desired.
  • In widgets, if you were using a dictionary as a params be aware that now the dictionary is not updated at construction or display/render time but simply replaced with the new one. If you were using it to provide default attributes for your widget, take a look at how the TableForm does that.

Features

  • A new function, turbogears.util.find_precision, to tell you how many decimal places of precision are required (to help with i18n.format.format_decimal which needs to know the precision).
  • tg-admin info shows which eggs require TurboGears.
  • In widgets, SelectionField now supports grouped options, SingleSelectField and MultipleSelectField widgets take advantage of this to provide an optgroup tag (see below).
  • The Widget Browser now displays the source of the example and the template provided by default in the widget (to allow for easier complete customization) (#840, #841)
  • Tabber and Syntax Highlighter widgets are now included.

The format of a grouped options list mentioned above is like the following:

options = [(None, [(1, "a"), (2, "b")]), ("Others", [(3, "c"), (4, "d")])]

Changes

  • sqlite database URIs can now be specified as sqlite:///c:/foo/bar on Windows, which is more natural for users. (The sqlite:///c|/foo/bar syntax still works.)
  • ValueError is raised if an InputWidget contains ”.” or “-”, which are reserved for use by the widgets
  • Package name is used instead of your_project in the quickstart logging config.

Fixes

  • Quickstart: an exception comes up if a user logs in but is not in a group that is required for access. The line with if not identity.current.anonymous and identity.was_login_attempted() in controllers.py or root.py needs an additional and not identity.get_identity_errors() condition (#834).
  • Quickstart projects that used identity would generate a table called “user”, which is invalid for some databases. The new quickstart model.py generates tables called tg_user (#805).
  • Quickstart: there were problems with the model template for SQLAlchemy (#801).
  • SQLAlchemy’s identity provider was not selected by default when you quickstart a new project (#806).
  • Core widgets all include WidgetDescriptions now and appear in the Widget Browser in the Toolbox (#727).
  • Access logging to a file wasn’t working correctly (#816).
  • Bug fix for convert/from_python for compound and repeating widgets
  • User name is now encoded to the DB encoding before a query is run in the SQLObject identity provider.
  • JSLink widgets can now specify a location
  • LocalizableJSLink (and the calendar widget) now work in IE (#846).
  • Added scheduler to turbogears.__init__.__all__ so that references to it work properly.
  • tg-admin info and Toolbox info commands now work properly and show the same information.
  • Fixed a serious bug in Python 2.3 compatibility (#853).

Project Updates

  • MochiKit updated to 1.3.1 (#804)

0.9a5 (April 26, 2006)

Backwards Incompatibilities

  • An identity login form must have a submit button having the name specified in the config file (identity.form.submit). If you have a commented identity.form.submit value and used the default login.kid file, you will need to add name="login" to the login.kid submit button.
  • In widgets, the base Widget class no longer supports a validator. If you need a validator you should use the InputWidget class
  • In widgets, the display and the adjust_value methods have a slightly different signature (if you happen to use the “convert” parameter, you just need to use it as a keyword parameter and not a positional one).
  • decorator() should be applied to the function accepting the function being decorated (“entangle” by convention), not the caller.
  • Removed keyword argument “argsink” from decorator(), weak_signature_decorator() should be used instead.

Deprecations

  • In widgets, template_vars in widgets are now called params and options_for has been renamed params_for.
  • In widgets, the update_data method has been renamed update_params
  • Identity has moved to PEP8 style naming. Changed userId, groupId, and permissionId to be user_name, group_name, and permission_name.
  • visit_id has been deprecated in favor of visit_key.
  • SQL scripts to migrate PostgreSQL and MySQL identity databases are available (#737).

Features

  • Dramatically improved and unified logging configuration. Config files can now use the options in Python’s logging module for log formats and output.
  • TurboGears now includes an enhanced version of Irmen de Jong’s Kronos scheduler, allowing you to schedule tasks that run in separate threads or processes periodically.
  • For Python 2.3 users, there is a convenient new decorator syntax that comes from Phillip Eby’s PEAK (see below).
  • Added a new turbogears.start_server function which will help ease the transition to 1.1 and adds the ability to use Ian Bicking’s EvalException. You must turn on tg.fancy_exception to use it at this point.
  • In widgets, if the widget you are using provides a default validator, for example a SelectionWidget, you can tweak its parameters by just passing a dictionary of those parameters as validator (for example, validator=dict(not_empty=True)).
  • In widgets, every attribute listed inside params now supports callables automatically (the attribute will be called for computation at request time)
  • Some improvements to the ImageButton widget
  • More customization hooks for CheckBoxList, RadioButtonList, TableForm and ListForm
  • Decimals are properly jsonified (#472).
  • datetime.date instances are properly jsonified (#759).
  • Commas are supported in number validation (#720).
  • It’s now possible to determine what permissions are required for a given controller method (#603).

This is the equivalent of @expose() in the new syntax mentioned above:

[expose()]
def index(self):
    pass

Changes

  • Identity model classes are now placed directly into the model.py of a quickstarted project. This new setup is much easier to change, since requirements for the identity model vary dramatically. Another advantage is that quickstart projects that don’t need identity start off with cleaner code, and projects that do need identity need almost no additional configuration or setup.
  • Quickstart projects include a “json.py” file as a home for JSON view code.
  • i18n “scan” command has been changed to “collect” to match the admi18n Toolbox tool
  • If you quickstart a project while in an svn checkout, files are no longer automatically “svn add”ed. This corrects some problems that people ran into with that behavior.
  • The “prod.cfg” file in quickstart projects is now called “sample-prod.cfg” to reflect that it is just used as a sample that you copy to your real production servers (#762).
  • The various classes used to make dictionaries look like normal objects have been replaced by turbogears.util.Bunch (#779).

Fixes

  • Model Designer can now handle joins to the same table (#769).
  • Unicode values sent to the turbogears.url function are utf8 encoded.
  • NotEmpty validator works with CheckBoxList now (#696).
  • Grid widget’s css has been improved to not interact with other widgets (#729, thanks to mark@cyberware).
  • the “self” parameter is no longer accidentally removed by validation
  • tg_format is properly stripped out for JSON requests (#740).
  • calendar widget language fixes (many language files needed patching)
  • DataController’s float columns are properly converted (#707).
  • str values in Kid templates are now assumed to be utf8 rather than ASCII (changeable via kid.encoding) (#743).
  • The flash message set on the current request takes precedence over the one in the cookie (#747).
  • py:match was being used in the default templates in a way that would drop the text from the first node (#785).
  • AutoCompleteField widget’s only_suggest now works correctly when there is only one item listed (#750).
  • Lots of HTML cleanup.

Project Updates

  • TurboGears now uses ConfigObj 4.3.0 for configuration
  • MochiKit upgraded to 1.3
  • simplejson upgraded to 1.3
  • CherryPy upgraded to 2.2.1
  • Kid upgraded to 0.9.1
  • FormEncode upgraded to 0.5.1
  • PasteScript upgraded to 0.5.1

0.9a4 (April 5, 2006)

Features

  • TableForm and ListForm both have new CSS classes “tableform” and “listform” and also have odd/even classes for the rows.

Fixes

  • The 0.9a3 quickstart template was missing important __init__.py files in the distributed egg.

0.9a3 (April 4, 2006)

Changes

  • FastData is no longer included with the TurboGears core package. You can install it with TurboGears by easy_install-ing “TurboGears[exp]” instead of “TurboGears”.

Features

  • You can find out if login was attempted during this request by calling identity.was_login_attempted.
  • Added tg.strict_parameters option that will cause an exception to be raised if extra parameters are passed to a controller method (#694).

Fixes

  • Base template (eg “master.kid”) now reload automatically when changed (#55).
  • identity.Any was missing an error_message attribute (#667).
  • Identity provides a more explicit error about wrong username/password (#616).
  • CatWalk no longer has a problem changing more than one foreign key label in “manage columns” (#690).
  • plain_gettext is now exported from the i18n package.
  • DataGrid.column fields are supported by FastDataGrid (#706).
  • The tg_errors variable sent to a controller now has the correct value even if the controller method doesn’t have keyword arguments (#698).
  • DBURIs with notrans_ now work properly with tg-admin sql create (#702).
  • Dutch and German calendar translations have been fixed #700.

Project Updates

  • setuptools 0.6a11
  • CherryPy 2.2.0
  • SQLObject to 0.7.1dev-r1675

Contributors

This update brought to you by Michele Cella, Jeff Watkins, Simon Davy, Baruch Even, Simon Belak, Claudio Martinez, Max Ischenko, Jason Chu, Roger Demetrescu, Joost Moesker, plus Phillip Eby for setuptools and Remi Delon and the others working on CherryPy.

0.9a2 (March 27, 2006)

Backwards Incompatibilities

  • Due to Python 2.3 issues and some additional discussion, the config files have gone back to an INI-style format. This means that some minor changes are needed if you were using the 0.9 ”.py” config files, but no changes are required for people using 0.8 ”.cfg” config files. See the upgrading guide for details.
  • If you used CompoundWidgets in 0.9a1, “widgets” has changed to “member_widgets”.
  • If you are using a Form or a FieldSet widget you must explicitly pass the “fields” parameter, the first positional parameter expected since 0.9a2 is “name”.
  • If you are using a Form or a FieldSet widget with a custom template you must update your template accordingly to the new templates TG is using.

Deprecations

  • WidgetsDeclaration (introduced in 0.9a1) has been renamed WidgetsList for clarity.
  • turbogears.config now has get() and update() functions that should be used in place of their cherrypy.config counterparts. This change was made knowing that there will be more powerful, TurboGears-specific configuration in TurboGears 1.1.
  • The field_for method of a Form (introduced in 0.9a1) has been deprecated and it’s use is highly discouraged and error prone, use display_field_for or render_field_for instead.
  • In the turbogears.view module variableProviders has been renamed variable_providers.
  • turbogears.fastdata.formmaker’s sqlwidgets function (introduced in 0.9a1) has been renamed fields_for.

New Features

  • Controller methods can now have multiple expose() decorators, allowing you to define different output formats (even with different template engines) that can be chosen via tg_format or the Accept header.
  • New AjaxGrid widget provides a grid in JavaScript that is populated via an Ajax call.
  • Three new base widgets to manage forms have been introduced: CompoundFormField, RepeatingFormField and FormFieldsContainer.
  • Experimental support for SQLAlchemy. For more complicated databases or certain database requirements, SQLAlchemy handles the database more gracefully. The main database layer for TurboGears remains SQLObject and SQLObject is more fully supported within TurboGears. However, for those who need it, SQLAlchemy support is there.
  • display_field_for and render_field_for are automatically added to the template scope of any FormFieldsContainer widget and can be used to easily display/render a field with the corrects value and options.
  • The basis for creating repeating sets of widgets has been created (see RepeatingFormField and RepeatingFieldSet for an example)
  • Catwalk can filter the data you see
  • When using widgets, you can now have more than one form on a page while retaining validation sanity.
  • With widgets, required fields automatically get a CSS class
  • CompoundWidgets/Forms now use FormEncode schemas, which provide a number of additional validation options.
  • AutoCompleteFields can now pass an ID back to the server when submitted (instead of just passing the matching search string).
  • Quickstart includes a “release.py” file where you can put your project information (including version number). This is the safe mechanism for allowing your project itself to access the version number while your setup script also has access to the same information (Don’t Repeat Yourself)
  • Quickstart has a new “tgbig” template designed for larger projects. This adds a controllers package to the basic TurboGears template.
  • CSSLink and CSSSource widgets now support “media”
  • The AutoCompleteField now has an “only_suggest” flag which makes it so that the first item on the list is not automatically submitted when you press return. This is useful for search boxes (as opposed to data entry fields).
  • The turbogears.startup now contains call_on_startup and call_on_shutdown lists. You can append callables to these to have them executed at the right time.
  • If you are using the i18n support, the _ function (alias of the gettext function) is now properly mapped to lazy_gettext if needed, this means you can use “_” for everything.
  • Added LocalizableJSLink widget that allows scripts to be chosen based on the user’s locale.

Changes

  • log_debug_info_filter is now turned off by default (this is the CherryPy filter that lists the request time). This filter causes problems with things like JSON output. You can still turn it back on via the config file.
  • Unless you specifically configure the decodingFilter yourself, TurboGears will automatically turn on CherryPy’s decodingFilter (expecting utf-8 input).
  • cherrypy.lowercase_api is set to True in new quickstarted projects. This should result in a performance boost, and requires that you use PEP 8 style names when calling CherryPy APIs/config values.
  • Table forms now use TH tags for the field labels, making it easier to apply appropriate styling to the tables.
  • AutoConnectHub used to support a “processConnection” (something it inherited from SQLObject). This is not really a supported model of operation, so it has been removed. If you do want to work that way, use SQLObject’s own ConnectionHub class.
  • The test_model test has been commented out from the quickstart template, because some projects don’t have databases.

Fixes

  • The TextArea widget now posts properly within a RemoteForm.
  • Catwalk styling cleanup
  • Catwalk no longer has problems with empty tables with foreign keys
  • ForEach validator added to turbogears.validators namespace
  • Catwalk will show related joins in the edit view
  • SQLObject identity provider passwords are automatically encrypted (this was in 0.9a1). This didn’t work properly when identity wasn’t fully running (as in the tg-admin shell). This has been fixed.
  • The AutoCompleteField turns off the browser’s own autocompletion.
  • A nicer error message is provided if you return something other than a string or a dict from your controller method.
  • admi18n does a better job of grouping files in the correct folder when collecting strings and skips over folders like ”.svn”.
  • The turbogears.url() function was flipping around path elements in the application root. Applications roots are not commonly used right now, but this was noticeable if you used the FeedController.
  • Various fixes for CatWalk’s database access (#568, #249, #213, #618).
  • ModelDesigner and admi18n can find your model.py file even if you change your package name at quickstart time.

Project Updates

  • Kid 0.9 / TurboKid 0.9.2
  • CherryPy 2.2.0rc1
  • PasteScript 0.5
  • TurboGears’ JSON output now comes from the TurboJson plugin

0.9a1 (February 23, 2006)

Backwards Incompatibilities

  • turbogears.expose no longer provides JSON by default. You need to turn on JSON via the config file or by the allow_json parameter to expose.
  • The server.webpath configuration variable will not only properly set outgoing URLs, but will also “fix” incoming URLs if TurboGears is running as some path underneath another webserver. If you were previously running a CherryPy filter to handle this, you no longer need to.
  • Directories of static files need an absolute path. The new configuration file format makes it easy to provide an absolute path without truly being tied to that path.
  • Previously, if you were using a FormEncode Schema for validation for an exposed method, validation would fail if a value was missing but the method had a default value for that parameter. Now, if that value is missing, the method will get called with the default just as it is normally called in Python.

Deprecations

  • In templates the “std” object that holds common values and functions has been changed to “tg”.
  • turbogears.controllers.Root has now become turbogears.controllers.RootController for clarity’s sake. Root continues to work, but its use is deprecated.
  • Error handling has been greatly improved. Use of the validation_error method has been deprecated. It will still be called if it exists, but a DeprecationWarning will be displayed.
  • turbogears.tests.util has been moved to turbogears.testutil
  • CherryPy has switched to PEP8-style names for things. The old names still work. However, they are deprecated.
  • expose(html=...) is now deprecated in favor for expose(template=...).
  • The old config file format is deprecated in favor of the new Python module format.

Features

  • The TurboGears Toolbox wraps a number of useful tools in one web interface. The toolbox can be extended with additional tools. Run the Toolbox with tg-admin toolbox.
  • CatWalk model/database browser is now part of the TurboGears Toolbox. Thanks to Ronald Jaramillo.
  • There’s a new “widgets” package that lets you easily create forms with sophisticated and dynamic behavior, all built from reusable components.
  • Identity management and access control now provided via turbogears.identity module. Includes basic classes for User, Group, and Permission objects via turbogears.identity.model. Thanks to Jeff Watkins.
  • There is a new internationalization package that allows you to use to conveniently localize your application via gettext. Thanks to Dan Jacob.
  • Internationalization can be managed via the Toolbox (thanks to Ronald Jaramillo) or the command line (thanks to Max Ischenko).
  • Each request is implicitly wrapped in a Transaction. This solves caching issues and reduces boilerplate code. It also helps codify a best practice so that bad data does not end up in your database.
  • Error handling for a method can be specified with an error_handler decorator thanks to Simon Belak.
  • TurboGears now has a feed object that can generate rss2.0, atom0.3 and atom1.0 feeds
  • Template encodings other than utf-8 can be selected with the new kid.encoding variable
  • tg-admin now uses PasteScript and can now supports user specific templates
  • tg-admin now have a update command
  • TurboGears is now compatible with Python 2.3, thanks to Paul Clifford.
  • TurboGears supports plugins for template engines, tg-admin commands
  • A plugin for Cheetah templates has been released separately
  • TurboGears now uses nose for testing
  • Templates can now be specified relative to the current package by preceding the template name with ”.”. For example, if you have a controller in “yourpackage” with templates in a package under that package, you can use “yourpackage.templates.templatename” or ”.templates.templatename”. Thanks to David Bernard.
  • New commands can be added to tg-admin via the turbogears.command entry point. Thanks to Elvelind Grandin.
  • Controllers that subclass controllers.Controller (including the standard RootController) can automatically use positional parameters for the methods. This means that “/entry/MONTH/DAY/YEAR” can be interpreted easily by a method entry(self, month, day, year).
  • MochiKit can now be included in your final HTML output by putting turbogears.mochikit in your output dictionary (it doesn’t matter what the key assigned is). The advantage to doing this is that it helps to ensure that MochiKit is included only once, even if you’re using widgets that require it.
  • MochiKit can be enabled everywhere by setting tg.mochikit_all to True in your config file.
  • Added new “cycle” object to std in template usage. This makes it easy to cycle through a number of values (and it also lets you retrieve the current value). This is useful for things like even and odd row classes, etc. Thanks to Karl Guertin.
  • You can send a random value in to the controller (tg_random) that will be automatically thrown out to get around issues with Internet Explorer caching data too aggressively.
  • The expose decorator has been split into input and output functions. expose continues to handle output, and the new validate decorator handles input (validation and form handling). This new setup makes it easier to mix in your own decorators if you need to.
  • Added turbogears.redirect which wraps the cherrypy.HTTPRedirect exception to automatically call turbogears.url to help ensure properly formatted URLs. You can either call turbogears.redirect or “raise turbogears.redirect” if that makes the intent clearer to you (as happens with the existing usage of cherrypy.HTTPRedirect)
  • There is a new configuration file format that are slightly specialized Python modules. This allows you to run Python code to determine your configuration.
  • You can now specify that you’re generating a fragment of a page (rather than an entire page) at expose time by passing fragment=True in to expose. This is useful if you want Kid to generate part of a page for an XMLHttpRequest, for example.
  • There’s a new validator, JSONValidator, that reads/writes JSON, which is convenient for parameters that are coming in via JSON.
  • New test stuff (expand).
  • There is now a tg-admin info command that shows all the version info for the TuboGears components.
  • TurboGears now supports SQLAlchemy – the unit-of-work is committed after a successful controller request. You can use the PackageEngine to load a dburi based on your package or the default sqlalchemy.dburi.

Fixes

  • setup.py tests for Python 2.4 (thanks to Elvelind Grandin for the idea and Bob Ippolito for the simplest implementation possible)
  • Base templates reload automatically (thanks to David Stanek). (Note: This ticket has been reopened. Support for this is experimental until the issues are ironed out.)
  • Kid no longer puts blank space in textareas.
  • turbogears.flash handles unicode values properly

Project Updates

  • replaced json-py with Bob Ippolito’s simple_json
  • the RuleDispatch package is new to TurboGears
  • TurboGears has moved to CherryPy 2.2, which is not yet stable. We will use the most stable snapshots possible in TurboGears 0.9 releases.
  • MochiKit upgraded to 1.2
  • setuptools upgraded to 0.6a10

0.8.9 (February 6, 2006)

  • Fixes a warning message that appears with each quickstart.

0.8.8 (January 10, 2006)

  • A security flaw was discovered in CherryPy’s static filter. This TurboGears update changes the CherryPy requirement to 2.1.1.

0.8.7 (January 4, 2006)

This update primarily solves installation issues and is not required otherwise.

  • Quickstart corrected to properly produce egg-info directories (previously, directories could be created with “-” when it should have a “_”). Note that setuptools 0.6a9 will warn you if you have a - in your egg-info directory name. Just rename the directory, and you’ll be fine.
  • Installation issues that people may have had earlier are resolved in this setuptools update.
  • version number set to 0.8.7 to reflect that this is considered the “stable” version of TurboGears vs. the current 0.9 code in svn.

Project Updates

  • setuptools 0.6a9
  • SQLObject 0.7.1dev_r1457 (updated to handle the setuptools change, but also includes other bugfixes)

0.8a6 (December 26, 2005)

  • Chained validators will now cause an Invalid exception to be raised as appropriate.
  • When validation would fail, previously an unexpected exception may be raised when an Invalid exception is expected
  • Quickstart didn’t look out for .pyo files in the same way that it did .pyc files.

Project Updates

  • json-py updated to 3.4

0.8a5 (December 2, 2005)

  • setup has been changed to ensure that people properly get the CherryPy 2.1 release version.

Project Updates

  • Kid updated to 0.8.0
  • MochiKit updated to 1.1
  • FormEncode updated to 0.4
  • setuptools updated to 0.6a8

0.8a4 (October 25, 2005)

Project Updates

  • setuptools 0.6a6
  • CherryPy 2.1 final
  • MochiKit 1.0

Fixes

  • On some servers, TurboGears can take a minute to start answering connections due to the way the OS handles incoming connections to ports that have nothing listening on them.

0.8a3 (October 16, 2005)

Fixes

  • setup.py was not using setup_requires in a productive way. This has been changed, so tg-admin quickstart will no longer need to go to the internet to function.
  • turbogears.database.set_db_uri was not properly putting the setting in the global config section. By Robert Leftwich.
  • Some people have had trouble with the url function not being able to find cherrypy.request.approot. This may be due to older classes that do not extend controllers.Root. This was not listed as a requirement for the URL function. The documentation for the url function has been updated, and the code has been updated to always set the approot to the top of the site at least.

0.8a2 (October 14, 2005)

Fixes

  • tg-admin quickstart was missing the appropriate egg-info for the sql commands to work properly

0.8a1 (October 12, 2005)

Backwards Incompatibilities

  • All of the turbogears* variables have been changed to tg_*. These are tg_template, tg_format, tg_flash and tg_js. (Note that turbogearsfmt has become tg_format and turbogearshtml has become tg_template.)
  • The StringBoolean validator (which has moved into FormEncode proper) now returns strings for from_python. For example, from_python(True) now returns 'true'. It used to return True.
  • turbogears-admin.py is now called tg-admin and is automatically generated by setuptools.
  • The tg-admin sql commands now require a properly setup .egg-info directory to automatically find the model classes. If the egg info is not properly set up, the command can fix it automatically.
  • The view.render method’s html parameter has been renamed template to reflect that the templates might be for XML presentations. Most people don’t call view.render directly.

New Features

  • There is a new PackageHub that is designed to allow different parts of a site to use different databases. Use of the PackageHub works just like the AutoConnectHub.
  • Added a new function: turbogears.database.set_db_uri. This is a more pleasant wrapper around the CherryPy config variables that can be used in command line tools and the like.
  • IPython is used in tg-admin shell, if it’s available. By David Guaraglia.
  • You can specify a default format via the new format parameter to expose. For example, expose(format=”json”) will cause the method to output JSON by default, even if HTML is available. By Elvelind Grandin.
  • You can specify the Content-Type via expose. Example: expose(content_type=”text/javascript”). By Elvelind Grandin.
  • expose now has a “template” parameter that can be used in place of “html”. This is more pleasant for non-HTML applications.
  • On Macs, if you’re running in development mode the server will be advertised via Bonjour. If you enable Bonjour bookmarks (via the Bookmarks Preferences tab in Safari), you’ll see your development server show up automatically. By Bob Ippolito.
  • There is now a url function that can be used to generate URLs conveniently and, more importantly, with an appropriate view of where the root of the web application is.
  • Validators can now be specified with a dict (the 0.5 way) or with a FormEncode Schema, which provides more options. By Fabian Neumann.
  • Quickstart now provides a basic static files skeleton. By Elvelind Grandin.
  • Added config setting to determine Kid’s output format (HTML/XHTML). By Fabian Neumann.
  • In quickstart, project-start.py now takes a config file on the command line. By Elvelind Grandin.
  • project-start.py is also made executable automatically. By Fabian Neumann.
  • Added turbogears.tests.util.call function to allow you to call a controller method and get the dictionary back without processing to HTML or JSON. This allows you to test controller logic independent of presentation.

Project Updates

  • setuptools updated to 0.6a5
  • SQLObject updated to 0.7 final
  • FormEncode updated to 0.2.3dev-r1108
  • CherryPy updated to 2.1-rc2
  • MochiKit updated to 0.9
  • Kid updated to 0.7adev-r186

Notable Improvements in the Projects

Kid can now generate plain text output using the PlainSerializer.

Fixes

  • All of the sqlobject-admin commands now work through the use of egg metadata.
  • If a template was specified in the returned dictionary from an exposed method, but not in the parameters to expose itself, that template was not applied. By Ronald Jaramillo.
  • The content-type meta tag in the quickstart files is now automatically stripped out, because Kid’s HTML serializer puts one in.
  • Improved comments in the quickstart config files.
  • There is a temporary hack to handle threadsafety issues with sqlite. This has been changed to only affect sqlite.
  • JSON output should work for Opera now (Opera appeared to have a problem with the text/javascript content-type and utf-8 encoding.) By “Lethalman”.
  • All files needed for a project to install and run from an egg should be installed properly based on the quickstart setup script.
  • The flash cookie was not always deleted. Setting the path on the cookie corrected this. By Nick.
