Old changes in Lino¶
Version 1.7.4 (released 2016-07-12)¶
Version 1.7.3 (released 2016-07-12)¶
This is the first time we release three projects at the same time and using the same version number: The lino package, Lino Extensions Library and Developer Guide.
When merging database objects (
lino.core.merge), Lino did not care at all about objects related to the MTI parents. For example, when merging two participants, then it redirects their enrolments but not e.g. their invoices, bank statements (i.e. objects pointing to this participant as person or partner). (2016-06-21)
New site attribute
lino.core.site.Site.workflows_module. Lino no longer executes any setup_workflows callable. (2016-06-22)
Lino XL 1.0.0 (released 2016-07-05)¶
The first release on PyPI of the Lino Extensions Library which is being used as a clone of the GitHub repository on our production sites since its creation.
Lino 1.7.2 (released 2016-06-19)¶
Lino now supports Django's generic relations (GenericRelation). (2016-05-23)
Error messages of style
NotImplementedError: <dl> inside <text:p>are now being shown correctly in the alert box for the user. (2016-05-23)
When duplicating a database object, Lino now calls the
on_duplicatemethod on the master before saving it for a first time. (2016-05-23)
New build method
CustomBuildMethod: a new style of build method for printables which have a target file to be generated, but don't use any template. (2016-05-12)
lino.core.site.Site.default_uiis now the full Python name, not just the app_label. (2016-05-06)
Added CachedPrintableChecker <lino.modlib.printing.mixins.CachedPrintableChecker> which checks for missing cache files (2016-04-27, 2016-05-04).
And quite some other.
Version 1.7.0 (released 2016-04-26)¶
Important changes which caused a minor version bump:
Lino no longer requires an old Python version (#36)
Lino no longer requires an old Django version (#38 and #650)
Moved "enterprise" plugins from
lino.modlibto Lino Extensions Library (#356)
Moved "Accounting" plugins from
lino.modlibto Lino Così (#520)
Lots of optimizations and bugfixes
usernameof a user is now nullable (can be empty). 2016-04-25.
Version 1.6.19 (released 2015-09-01)¶
Changed Development Status from beta to stable.
Lots of changes, especially the murder bug (2015-08-31)
Version 1.6.18 (released 2015-07-28)¶
Lots of changes. Lino Noi 0.0.1 needs this version.
lino.core.actions.Action.run_from_ui()raises an exception, Lino (until now) nevertheless closed the action form window. Now the window is closed only when the action runs without any exception. 2015-02-26.
lino.utils.jsgen) is now thread-safe. 2015-02-25.
No more need to set user_model 2015-01-16.
New way to define modular menus. 2015-01-14.
ShowSlaveTabledid not yet copy over the
sort_indexspecified on a table to the
sort_indexof the action. Bug fixed.
Version 1.6.17 (released 2015-01-08)¶
lino.utils.mti.delete_child()was no longer working with recent Django versions. 2015-01-08
Miscellaneous internal changes.
new plugin method
Documentation now builds without warnings. 2014-12-23
Version 1.6.16 (released 2014-12-22)¶
A minor release because
Some classes changed their place while working on #39
/dev/install/index is getting better. I am working on it for #40.
Version 1.6.15 (released 2014-12-12)¶
Integrated my north and djangosite projects into Lino. These independent github projects are now obsolete and no longer maintained.
A "plugin" is an app which defines in her __init__.py a class named "Plugin" which must be a subclass of
dd.Plugin. We could also call them "new-style apps". A Plugin can have additional configuration.
This mechanism is also a (partial) solution for Django ticket Django ticket #3591 Aymeric Augustin's solution being imported before Django settings.
The apps of a Site are later accessible via settings.SITE.plugins.foo
Some site settings have become plugin settings: The are no longer defined as class attributes of Site, but defined in the App class. For example
extensible_rootis now in
Concrete example in my
def setup_site(self): ... self.bootstrap_root = '/home/luc/snapshots/bootstrap' self.bootstrap_base_url = None self.extensible_root = '/home/luc/snapshots/extensible-1.0.1' self.extensible_base_url = None self.extjs_root = '/home/luc/snapshots/ext-3.3.1'
def setup_site(self): ... self.configure_plugin( 'extensible', calendar_start_hour=9, media_root='/home/luc/snapshots/extensible-1.0.1', media_base_url=None) self.configure_plugin( 'plain', media_root='/home/luc/snapshots/bootstrap', media_base_url=None) self.configure_plugin( 'extjs', media_root='/home/luc/snapshots/ext-3.3.1', media_base_url=None)
lino.apps.plainare now plugins. They are currently being included automatically in
lino.lino_site.Site.get_installed_apps()to avoid more code changes in existing applications.
Moved lino.extjs to lino.apps.extjs
Version 1.6.13 (released 2013-10-07)¶
Some subtle bugfixes and optimizations. Mostly because of Lino Welfare.
Version 1.6.12 (released 2013-09-24)¶
New framework features include
customizable export as .pdf, (2013-09-12).
menu buttons (grouped actions), see 2013-09-13.
The DavLink applet now works around some permission problems which occured after Oracle JRE 7u21 (2013-09-19).
It is now (again) possible to run multiple Lino instances on a same vhost in different subdirectories. See
Framework bugfixes include (1) table parameter panel initial size (2)
Renamed dd.AuthorRowAction to dd.AuthorAction and merged the now obsolete dd.RowAction into
html2xhtmlis now just a wrapper to pytidylib (which itself is a wrapper to HTML Tidy). See 2013-08-24. IOW, you will probably want to run either:
$ sudo apt-get install python-tidylib
$ sudo apt-get install libtidy-dev $ pip install pytidylib
Version 1.6.11 (released 2013-07-23)¶
Check the new setting
is_demo_sitewhich defaults to True.
Existing Lino applications must add
lino.modlib.systemto the list of apps yielded by their
lino.ui.Site.get_installed_apps(). See 2013-07-17 for background.
If you don't override the
lino.ui.Siteclass, then your instantiating code in settings.py is something like:
SITE = Site(globals(),'foo','bar')
Change this to:
SITE = Site(globals(),'lino.modlib.system','foo','bar')
If you do override it, then change your get_installed_apps method:
def get_installed_apps(self): for a in super(Site,self).get_installed_apps(): yield a yield 'lino.modlib.system' ## <<< this line added yield 'lino.modlib.users' # continue with your own modules
Also the models SiteConfig, HelpText and TextFieldTemplate have now the app_label "system" instead of "ui". If you have production data, you'll need to write a data migration to rename these tables. See
lino_welfare.migratefor an example on how to automate this.
Optimization: virtual fields to a foreignkey (e.g. the new bailiff field in welfare.debts.PrintLiabilitiesByBudget) might cause a "unicode object has no attribute '_meta'" traceback.
Version 1.6.6 (released 2013-05-05)¶
lino.utils.html2odfnow converts the text formats <i> and <em> to a style "Emphasis". <b> is no longer converted to "Bold Text" but to "Strong Emphasis".
Lino now supports
lino.core.fields.VirtualField. See 2013-04-22
lino.core.authforgot to set request.subst_user to None for html HEAD requests. (2013-04-23)
Readable user message when contract type empty (2013-04-23)
Version 1.6.5 (released 2013-04-22)¶
Exceptions "Using remote authentication, but no user credentials found." and "Unknown or inactive username %r. Please contact your system administrator." raised by
lino.core.auth.RemoteUserMiddlewareno longer is a PermissionDenied but a simple Exception. See 2013-04-09.
lino.core.fields.IncompleteDateFieldnow has a default help_text (adapted from birth_date field in
The new method
lino.core.model.Model.subclasses_graph()generates a graphviz directive which shows this model and the submodels. the one and only usage example is visible in the Lino-Welfare user manual See 2013-04-01.
