FeinCMS 1.10 release notes¶
Welcome to FeinCMS 1.10!
Full compatibility with the app-loading refactor in Django 1.7¶
FeinCMS 1.10 is compatible with Django 1.7. It shouldn’t even be necessary to change your FeinCMS-using code.
The only change is that we cannot test for name clashes in content types
anymore. This only concerns you if you were using more than one
feincms.models.Base subclass inside the same app using the same content
types. You should be using the
class_name argument to
create_content_type already anyway. The technical reason for this change
is that the name clash test requires the app registry to be ready (which it
isn’t yet when creating content types).
If for some reason FeinCMS 1.10 does not work with Django 1.7 for you, please provide a description of the problems you’re seeing in the issue tracker.
TinyMCE 4.1 as default rich text configuration¶
FeinCMS now uses TinyMCE 4.1 as the default rich text editor instead of the outdated 3.x line of releases. The previous version is still officially supported as is CKEditor. Also, the TinyMCE configuration has been changed to hide the menubar by default.
Home-grown schema checking support has been deactivated¶
Not many words needed. Use South or Django 1.7’s own migrations support instead.
This functionality has been deactivated without a deprecation period because
compared to real database migration solutions it looks more like a bug than a
feature. Also, it interfered with initial migrations – the page table’s
schema was introspected because of other
post_syncdb signals before the
table itself even existed under certain circumstances, which meant that
migrations failed with the only way out being
To continue using this functionality, set
True. The functionality will be completely removed in the next release.
Notable features and improvements¶
- The bundled versions of jQuery and jQuery UI have been updated to 1.11.1 and 1.10.3 respectively.
feincms_languagelinksdoes not return page URLs leading to inactive pages anymore.
- The application content type form does not mysteriously forget values anymore.
Page.get_original_translationreturns the current page instead of crashing if there is no original translation.
feincms_navreturns an empty list instead of crashing if the page argument is
- Settings are documented again.
- Bulk deletion of pages in the tree editor shouldn’t lead to MPTT data corruption anymore. This didn’t happen often before either, but shouldn’t happen anymore at all.
Compatibility with Django and other apps¶
FeinCMS 1.10 requires Django 1.4 or better. The testsuite is successfully run against Django 1.4, 1.5, 1.6 and the upcoming 1.7.
