Upgrading to Django 1.5
Posted: | More posts about python django
In the process of upgrading our apps to Django 1.5 from 1.4. Discovered the following so far:-
- URLField drop verify_exists parameter.
- New url tag syntax - we seem to use the old syntax a lot, fortunately one line sed can fix it.
- Django form output changed a bit - we have test that check for output like
<input id="id_em" type="text" name="em". This has changed to
<input id="id_em" name="em" size="25" type="text". Can't find reference to this though.
settings.ALLOWED_HOSTnow required if
DEBUG = False. Without this settings, you'll get 500 error without further output in the error log.
Of course the list of changes lot more but these were the one that affected us.
