Welcome to Django 1.1.2!
This is the second “bugfix” release in the Django 1.1 series, improving the stability and performance of the Django 1.1 codebase.
Django 1.1.2 maintains backwards compatibility with Django 1.1.0, but contain a number of fixes and other improvements. Django 1.1.2 is a recommended upgrade for any development or deployment currently using or targeting Django 1.1.
For full details on the new features, backwards incompatibilities, and deprecated features in the 1.1 branch, see the Django 1.1 release notes.
The exit status code of the test runners (
manage.py test) no longer represents the number of failed tests, since a
failure of 256 or more tests resulted in a wrong exit status code. The exit
status code for the test runner is now 0 for success (no failing tests) and 1
for any number of test failures. If needed, the number of test failures can be
found at the end of the test runner’s output.
Ordinarily, a point release would not include new features, but in the
case of Django 1.1.2, we have made an exception to this rule. Django
1.2 (the next major release of Django) will contain a feature that
will improve protection against Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF)
attacks. This feature requires the use of a new
template tag in all forms that Django renders.
To make it easier to support both 1.1.X and 1.2.X versions of Django with
the same templates, we have decided to introduce the
tag to the 1.1.X branch. In the 1.1.X branch,
csrf_token does nothing -
it has no effect on templates or form processing. However, it means that the
same template will work with Django 1.2.
