Django 1.9.2 fixes a security regression in 1.9 and several bugs in 1.9.1. It also makes a small backwards incompatible change that hopefully doesn’t affect any users.
save_as=True (not the default), the admin
provides an option when editing objects to “Save as new”. A regression in
Django 1.9 prevented that form submission from raising a “Permission Denied”
error for users without the “add” permission.
.py-tplfiles rewritten in project/app templates¶
The addition of some Django template language syntax to the default app
template in Django 1.9 means those files now have some invalid Python syntax.
This causes difficulties for packaging systems that unconditionally
To remedy this, a
.py-tpl suffix is now used for the project and app
template files included in Django. The
.py-tpl suffix is replaced with
.py by the
startapp commands. For example, a
template with the filename
manage.py-tpl will be created as
Please file a ticket if you have a custom project template containing
.py-tpl files and find this behavior problematic.
Fixed a regression in
checks to always return HTTP 200 (#26024).
Fixed a regression that caused the “user-tools” items to display on the admin’s logout page (#26035).
Fixed a crash in the translations system when the current language has no translations (#26046).
Fixed a regression that caused the incorrect day to be selected when opening the admin calendar widget for timezones from GMT+0100 to GMT+1200 (#24980).
Fixed a regression in the admin’s edit related model popup that caused an escaped value to be displayed in the select dropdown of the parent window (#25997).
Fixed a regression in 1.8.8 causing incorrect index handling in migrations on
PostgreSQL when adding
unique=True to a
TextField that already had the other specified, or when
removing one of them from a field that had both, or when adding
unique=True to a field already listed in
Fixed a regression where defining a relation on an abstract model’s field using a string model name without an app_label no longer resolved that reference to the abstract model’s app if using that model in another application (#25858).
Fixed a crash when destroying an existing test database on MySQL or PostgreSQL (#26096).
Fixed CSRF cookie check on POST requests when
QuerySet.order_by() crash when ordering by a relational field of
through model (#26092).
Fixed a regression that caused an exception when making database queries on
SQLite with more than 2000 parameters when
distributions that increase the
limit to over 2000, such as Debian (#26063).
Fixed a crash when using a reverse
Fixed a crash when calling the
migrate command in a test case with the
available_apps attribute pointing to an application with migrations
disabled using the
MIGRATION_MODULES setting (#26135).
Restored the ability for testing and debugging tools to determine the
template from which a node came from, even during template inheritance or
inclusion. Prior to Django 1.9, debugging tools could access the template
origin from the node via
Node.token.source. This was an undocumented,
private API. The origin is now available directly on each node using the
Node.origin attribute (#25848).
Fixed a regression in Django 1.8.5 that broke copying a
geometry_field in the GeoJSON serializer output regardless
fields parameter (#26138).
contrib.gis map widgets when using
Made invalid forms display the initial of values of their disabled fields (#26129).
