Django-reversion

3.0.5

- Improved performance of `get_deleted` for large datasets (jeremy-engel).
- Django 3.0 compatibility (claudep).
- Drops Django <= 1.11 compatibility (claudep).
- Fixed errors in manageement commands when `django.contrib.admin` is not in `INSTALLED_APPS` (irtimir).

3.0.4

------------------

- Remove `django.contrib.admin` dependency from django-reversion (Aitor Ruano).
- README refactor (rhenter).
- Testing against Django 2.2 (claudep).

3.0.3

------------------

- Improved performance of many reversion database queries using `EXISTS` subquery (MRigal).
- Added support for Django 2.1 `view` permission (ofw).

3.0.2

------------------

- Removed squashed migrations, as they subtly messed up the Django migrations framework (etianen).

3.0.1

------------------

- Added squashed migrations back in to allow older installations to upgrade (Christopher Thorne).
- Fixed TypeError exception when accessing m2m_data attribute from a field that points to Django’s User model
(denisroldan).

3.0.0

------------------

- **Breaking:** ``Revision.commment`` now contains the raw JSON change message generated by django admin, rather than
a string. Accesing ``Revision.comment`` directly is no longer recommended. Instead, use ``Revision.get_comment()``.
(RamezIssac).
- **BREAKING:** django-reversion now uses ``_base_manager`` to calculate deleted models, not ``_default_manager``. This
change will only affect models that perform default filtering in their ``_default_manager`` (ivissani).

- Bugfixes (achidlow, claudep, etianen).

2.0.10

-------------------

- Bugfix: Handling case of `None` user in request (pawelad).
- Documentation corrections (danielquinn).
- Bugfix: "invalid literal for int() with base 10: 'None'" for unversioned admin inline relations.

If, after updating, you still experience this issue, run the following in a Django shell:

.. code::

from reversion.models import Version
Version.objects.filter(object_id="None").delete()

**Important:** Ensure that none of your versioned models contain a string primary key where `"None"` is a valid value
before running this snippet!

2.0.0

------------------

django-reversion was first released in May 2008, and has been in active development ever since. Over this time it's developed a certain amount of cruft from legacy and unused features, resulting in needless complexity and multiple ways of achieving the same task.

This release substantially cleans and refactors the codebase. Much of the top-level functionality remains unchanged or is very similar. The release notes are divided into subsections to make it easier to find out where you need to update your code.

This release includes a migration for the ``Version`` model that may take some time to complete.


General improvements
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

* Dramatically improved performance of version lookup for models with a non-integer primary key (etianen, mshannon1123).
* Documentation refactor (etianen).
* Test refactor (etianen).
* Minor tweaks and bugfixes (etianen, bmarika, ticosax).


Admin
^^^^^

* Fixed issue with empty revisions being created in combination with ``RevisionMiddleware`` (etianen).

* **Breaking:** Removed ``reversion_format`` property from ``VersionAdmin`` (etianen).

Use ``VersionAdmin.reversion_register`` instead.

.. code::

class YourVersionAdmin(VersionAdmin):

def reversion_register(self, model, **options):
options["format"] = "yaml"
super(YourVersionAdmin, self).reversion_register(model, **options)

* **Breaking:** Removed ``ignore_duplicate_revisions`` property from ``VersionAdmin`` (etianen).

Use ``VersionAdmin.reversion_register`` instead.

.. code::

class YourVersionAdmin(VersionAdmin):

def reversion_register(self, model, **options):
options["ignore_duplicates"] = True
super(YourVersionAdmin, self).reversion_register(model, **options)




Management commands
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

* **Breaking:** Refactored arguments to ``createinitialrevisions`` (etianen).

All existing functionality should still be supported, but several parameter names have been updated to match Django coding conventions.

Check the command ``--help`` for details.

* **Breaking:** Refactored arguments to ``deleterevisions`` (etianen).

All existing functionality should still be supported, but several parameter names have been updated to match Django coding conventions, and some duplicate parameters have been removed. The confirmation prompt has been removed entirely, and the command now always runs in the ``--force`` mode from the previous version.

Check the command ``--help`` for details.


Middleware
^^^^^^^^^^

* Added support for using ``RevisionMiddleware`` with new-style Django 1.10 ``MIDDLEWARE`` (etianen).
* Middleware wraps entire request in ``transaction.atomic()`` to preserve transactional integrity of revision and models (etianen).


View helpers
^^^^^^^^^^^^

* Added ``reversion.views.create_revision`` view decorator (etianen).
* Added ``reversion.views.RevisionMixin`` class-based view mixin (etianen).


Low-level API
^^^^^^^^^^^^^

* Restored many of the django-reversion API methods back to the top-level namespace (etianen).
* Revision blocks are now automatically wrapped in ``transaction.atomic()`` (etianen).
* Added ``for_concrete_model`` argument to ``reversion.register()`` (etianen).
* Added ``Version.objects.get_for_model()`` lookup function (etianen).
* Added ``reversion.add_to_revision()`` for manually adding model instances to an active revision (etianen).
* Removed ``Version.object_id_int`` field, in favor of a unified ``Version.object_id`` field for all primary key types (etianen).

* **Breaking:** ``reversion.get_for_object_reference()`` has been moved to ``Version.objects.get_for_object_reference()`` (etianen).

* **Breaking:** ``reversion.get_for_object()`` has been moved to ``Version.objects.get_for_object()`` (etianen).

* **Breaking:** ``reversion.get_deleted()`` has been moved to ``Version.objects.get_deleted()`` (etianen).

* **Breaking:** ``Version.object_version`` has been renamed to ``Version._object_version`` (etianen).

* **Breaking:** Refactored multi-db support (etianen).

django-reversion now supports restoring model instances to their original database automatically. Several parameter names have also be updated to match Django coding conventions.

If you made use of the previous multi-db functionality, check the latest docs for details. Otherwise, everything should *just work*.

* **Breaking:** Removed ``get_ignore_duplicates`` and ``set_ignore_duplicates`` (etianen).

``ignore_duplicates`` is now set in reversion.register() on a per-model basis.

* **Breaking:** Removed ``get_for_date()`` function (etianen).

Use ``get_for_object().filter(revision__date_created__lte=date)`` instead.

* **Breaking:** Removed ``get_unique_for_object()`` function (etianen).

Use ``get_for_object().get_unique()`` instead.

* **Breaking:** Removed ``signal`` and ``eager_signals`` argument from ``reversion.register()`` (etianen).

To create revisions on signals other than ``post_save`` and ``m2m_changed``, call ``reversion.add_to_revision()`` in a signal handler for the appropriate signal.

.. code:: python

from django.dispatch import receiver
import reversion
from your_app import your_custom_signal

reciever(your_custom_signal)
def your_custom_signal_handler(instance, **kwargs):
if reversion.is_active():
reversion.add_to_revision(instance)

This approach will work for both eager and non-eager signals.

* **Breaking:** Removed ``adapter_cls`` argument from ``reversion.register()`` (etianen).

* **Breaking:** Removed ``reversion.save_revision()`` (etianen).

Use reversion.add_to_revision() instead.

.. code:: python

import reversion

with reversion.create_revision():
reversion.add_to_revision(your_obj)


Signals
^^^^^^^

* **Breaking:** Removed ``pre_revision_commit`` signal (etianen).

Use the Django standard ``pre_save`` signal for ``Revision`` instead.

* **Breaking:** Removed ``post_revision_commit`` signal (etianen).

Use the Django standard ``post_save`` signal for ``Revision`` instead.


Helpers
^^^^^^^

* **Breaking:** Removed ``patch_admin`` function (etianen).

Use ``VersionAdmin`` as a mixin to 3rd party ModelAdmins instead.

.. code::

admin.register(SomeModel)
class YourModelAdmin(VersionAdmin, SomeModelAdmin):

pass

* **Breaking:** Removed ``generate_diffs`` function (etianen).

django-reversion no supports an official diff helper. There are much better ways of achieving this now, such as `django-reversion-compare <https://github.com/jedie/django-reversion-compare>`_.

The old implementation is available for reference from the `previous release <https://github.com/etianen/django-reversion/blob/release-1.10.2/src/reversion/helpers.py>`_.

* **Breaking:** Removed ``generate_patch`` function (etianen).
