News ==== .. contents:: 0.9 --* Added ``req.urlarg``, which represents positional arguments in ``environ['wsgiorg.routing_args']``. * For Python 2.

4, added attribute get/set proxies on exception objects from, for example, ``webob.exc.HTTPNotFound().exception``, so that they act more like normal response objects (despite not being new-style classes or ``webob.Response`` objects). In Python 2.5 the exceptions are ``webob.Response`` objects. Backward Incompatible Changes ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ * The ``Response`` constructor has changed: it is now ``Response([body], [status], ...)`` (before it was ``Response([status], [body], ...)``). Body may be str or unicode. * The ``Response`` class defaults to ``text/html`` for the Content-Type, and ``utf8`` for the charset (charset is only set on ``text/*`` and ``application/*+xml`` responses). Bugfixes and Small Changes ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ * Use ``BaseCookie`` instead of ``SimpleCookie`` for parsing cookies. * Added ``resp.write(text)`` method, which is equivalent to ``resp.body += text`` or ``resp.unicode_body += text``, depending on the type of ``text``. * The ``decode_param_names`` argument (used like ``Request(decode_param_names=True)``) was being ignored. * Unicode decoding of file uploads and file upload filenames were causing errors when decoding non-file-upload fields (both fixes from Ryan Barrett). 0.8.5 ----* Added response methods ``resp.encode_content()`` and ``resp.decode_content()`` to gzip or ungzip content. * ``Response(status=404)`` now works (before you would have to use ``status="404 Not Found"``). * Bugfix (typo) with reusing POST body. * Added ``226 IM Used`` response status. * Backport of ``string.Template`` included for Python 2.3 compatibility.

0.8.4 ----* ``__setattr__`` would keep ``Request`` subclasses from having properly settable environ proxies (like ``req.path_info``). 0.8.3 ----* ``request.POST`` was giving FieldStorage objects for *every* attribute, not just file uploads. This is fixed now. * Added request attributes ``req.server_name`` and ``req.server_port`` for the environ keys ``SERVER_NAME`` and ``SERVER_PORT``. * Avoid exceptions in ``req.content_length``, even if ``environ['CONTENT_LENGTH']`` is somehow invalid. 0.8.2 ----* Python 2.3 compatibility: backport of ``reversed(seq)`` * Made separate ``.exception`` attribute on ``webob.exc`` objects, since new-style classes can't be raised as exceptions. * Deprecate ``req.postvars`` and ``req.queryvars``, instead using the sole names ``req.GET`` and ``req.POST`` (also ``req.str_GET`` and ``req.str_POST``). The old names give a warning; will give an error in next release, and be completely gone in the following release. * ``req.user_agent`` is now just a simple string (parsing the User-Agent header was just too volatile, and required too much knowledge about current browsers). Similarly, ``req.referer_search_query()`` is gone. * Added parameters ``version`` and ``comment`` to ``Response.set_cookie()``, per William Dode's suggestion. * Was accidentally consuming file uploads, instead of putting the ``FieldStorage`` object directly in the parameters. 0.8.1 ----* Added ``res.set_cookie(..., httponly=True)`` to set the ``HttpOnly`` attribute on the cookie, which keeps Javascript from reading the cookie. * Added some WebDAV-related responses to ``webob.exc`` * Set default ``Last-Modified`` when using ``response.cache_expire()`` (fixes issue with Opera) * Generally fix ``.cache_control`` 0.8 ---

First release. Nothing is new, or everything is new, depending on how you think about it.
