2.4.0 insecure

**Date**: [29th August 2014](https://github.com/tomchristie/django-rest-framework/issues?q=milestone%3A%222.4.0+Release%22+).

**Django version requirements**: The lowest supported version of Django is now 1.4.2.

**South version requirements**: This note applies to any users using the optional `authtoken` application, which includes an associated database migration. You must now *either* upgrade your `south` package to version 1.0, *or* instead use the built-in migration support available with Django 1.7.

* Added compatibility with Django 1.7's database migration support.
* New test runner, using `py.test`.
* Deprecated `.model` view attribute in favor of explicit `.queryset` and `.serializer_class` attributes. The `DEFAULT_MODEL_SERIALIZER_CLASS` setting is also deprecated.
* `detail_route` and `list_route` decorators replace `action` and `link`.
* Support customizable view name and description functions, using the `VIEW_NAME_FUNCTION` and `VIEW_DESCRIPTION_FUNCTION` settings.
* Added `NUM_PROXIES` setting for smarter client IP identification.
* Added `MAX_PAGINATE_BY` setting and `max_paginate_by` generic view attribute.
* Added `Retry-After` header to throttled responses, as per [RFC 6585](http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6585). This should now be used in preference to the custom `X-Trottle-Wait-Seconds` header which will be fully deprecated in 3.0.
* Added `cache` attribute to throttles to allow overriding of default cache.
* Added `lookup_value_regex` attribute to routers, to allow the URL argument matching to be constrainted by the user.
* Added `allow_none` option to `CharField`.
* Support Django's standard `status_code` class attribute on responses.
* More intuitive behavior on the test client, as `client.logout()` now also removes any credentials that have been set.
* Bugfix: `?page_size=0` query parameter now falls back to default page size for view, instead of always turning pagination off.
* Bugfix: Always uppercase `X-Http-Method-Override` methods.
* Bugfix: Copy `filter_backends` list before returning it, in order to prevent view code from mutating the class attribute itself.
* Bugfix: Set the `.action` attribute on viewsets when introspected by `OPTIONS` for testing permissions on the view.
* Bugfix: Ensure `ValueError` raised during deserialization results in a error list rather than a single error. This is now consistent with other validation errors.
* Bugfix: Fix `cache_format` typo on throttle classes, was `"throtte_%(scope)s_%(ident)s"`. Note that this will invalidate existing throttle caches.

2.3.12 insecure

**Date**: 15th January 2014

* **Security fix**: `OrderingField` now only allows ordering on readable serializer fields, or on fields explicitly specified using `ordering_fields`. This prevents users being able to order by fields that are not visible in the API, and exploiting the ordering of sensitive data such as password hashes.
* Bugfix: `write_only = True` fields now display in the browsable API.

2.3.11 insecure

**Date**: 14th January 2014

* Added `write_only` serializer field argument.

* Bugfix: `required=True` argument fixed for boolean serializer fields.
* Bugfix: `client.force_authenticate(None)` should also clear session info if it exists.
* Bugfix: Client sending empty string instead of file now clears `FileField`.
* Bugfix: Empty values on ChoiceFields with `required=False` now consistently return `None`.
* Bugfix: Clients setting `page_size=0` now simply returns the default page size, instead of disabling pagination. [*]

---

[*] Note that the change in `page_size=0` behaviour fixes what is considered to be a bug in how clients can effect the pagination size.  However if you were relying on this behavior you will need to add the following mixin to your list views in order to preserve the existing behavior.

class DisablePaginationMixin(object):
def get_paginate_by(self, queryset=None):
if self.request.QUERY_PARAMS[self.paginate_by_param] == '0':
return None
return super(DisablePaginationMixin, self).get_paginate_by(queryset)

* Regression fix: Date and time fields return date/time objects by default.  Fixes regressions caused by 2.2.2.  See [743][743] for more details.
* Bugfix: Fix 500 error is OAuth not attempted with OAuthAuthentication class installed.
* `Serializer.save()` now supports arbitrary keyword args which are passed through to the object `.save()` method.  Mixins use `force_insert` and `force_update` where appropriate, resulting in one less database query.

2.2.2 insecure

**Date**: 6th March 2013

* Support for custom input and output formats for `DateField`, `DateTimeField` and `TimeField`.
* Cleanup: Request authentication is no longer lazily evaluated, instead authentication is always run, which results in more consistent, obvious behavior.  Eg. Supplying bad auth credentials will now always return an error response, even if no permissions are set on the view.
* Bugfix for serializer data being uncacheable with pickle protocol 0.
* Bugfixes for model field validation edge-cases.
* Bugfix for authtoken migration while using a custom user model and south.

2.2.1 insecure

* Bugfix: Allow serializer output to be cached.
* Bugfix: Fix styling on browsable API login.
* Bugfix: Fix issue with deserializing empty to-many relations.

**Note**: If the primary authentication class is `TokenAuthentication` or `BasicAuthentication`, a view will now correctly return 401 responses to unauthenticated access, with an appropriate `WWW-Authenticate` header, instead of 403 responses.

2.1.16 insecure

**Date**: 14th Jan 2013

* Deprecate `django.utils.simplejson` in favor of Python 2.6's built-in json module.
* Bugfix: `auto_now`, `auto_now_add` and other `editable=False` fields now default to read-only.

* Bugfix: Validation errors instead of exceptions when serializers receive incorrect types.
* Bugfix: Validation errors instead of exceptions when related fields receive incorrect types.
* Bugfix: Handle ObjectDoesNotExist exception when serializing null reverse one-to-one

**Note**: Prior to 2.1.16, The Decimals would render in JSON using floating point if `simplejson` was installed, but otherwise render using string notation.  Now that use of `simplejson` has been deprecated, Decimals will consistently render using string notation.  See [582] for more details.

**Note**: From 2.1.14 onwards, relational fields move out of the `fields.py` module and into the new `relations.py` module, in order to separate them from regular data type fields, such as `CharField` and `IntegerField`.

This change will not affect user code, so long as it's following the recommended import style of `from rest_framework import serializers` and referring to fields using the style `serializers.PrimaryKeyRelatedField`.

2.1.13 insecure

**Date**: 28th Dec 2012

0.2.0 insecure

* Big refactoring changes since 0.1.0, ask on the discussion group if anything isn't clear.
The public API has been massively cleaned up.  Expect it to be fairly stable from here on in.

* ``Resource`` becomes decoupled into ``View`` and ``Resource``, your views should now inherit from ``View``, not ``Resource``.

* The handler functions on views ``.get() .put() .post()`` etc, no longer have the ``content`` and ``auth`` args.
Use ``self.CONTENT`` inside a view to access the deserialized, validated content.
Use ``self.user`` inside a view to access the authenticated user.

* ``allowed_methods`` and ``anon_allowed_methods`` are now defunct.  if a method is defined, it's available.
The ``permissions`` attribute on a ``View`` is now used to provide generic permissions checking.
Use permission classes such as ``FullAnonAccess``, ``IsAuthenticated`` or ``IsUserOrIsAnonReadOnly`` to set the permissions.

* The ``authenticators`` class becomes ``authentication``.  Class names change to ``Authentication``.

* The ``emitters`` class becomes ``renderers``.  Class names change to ``Renderers``.

* ``ResponseException`` becomes ``ErrorResponse``.

* The mixin classes have been nicely refactored, the basic mixins are now ``RequestMixin``, ``ResponseMixin``, ``AuthMixin``, and ``ResourceMixin``
You can reuse these mixin classes individually without using the ``View`` class.
