    2 Django 1.1.2 release notes
    3 ==========================
    4 
    5 Welcome to Django 1.1.2!
    6 
    7 This is the second "bugfix" release in the Django 1.1 series,
    8 improving the stability and performance of the Django 1.1 codebase.
    9 
   10 Django 1.1.2 maintains backwards compatibility with Django
   11 1.1.0, but contain a number of fixes and other
   12 improvements. Django 1.1.2 is a recommended upgrade for any
   13 development or deployment currently using or targeting Django 1.1.
   14 
   15 For full details on the new features, backwards incompatibilities, and
   16 deprecated features in the 1.1 branch, see the :doc:`/releases/1.1`.
   17 
   18 Backwards-incompatible changes in 1.1.2
   19 =======================================
   20 
   21 Test runner exit status code
   22 ----------------------------
   23 
   24 The exit status code of the test runners (``tests/runtests.py`` and ``python
   25 manage.py test``) no longer represents the number of failed tests, since a
   26 failure of 256 or more tests resulted in a wrong exit status code.  The exit
   27 status code for the test runner is now 0 for success (no failing tests) and 1
   28 for any number of test failures.  If needed, the number of test failures can be
   29 found at the end of the test runner's output.
   30 
   31 Cookie encoding
   32 ---------------
   33 
   34 To fix bugs with cookies in Internet Explorer, Safari, and possibly other
   35 browsers, our encoding of cookie values was changed so that the characters
   36 comma and semi-colon are treated as non-safe characters, and are therefore
   37 encoded as ``\054`` and ``\073`` respectively.  This could produce backwards
   38 incompatibilities, especially if you are storing comma or semi-colon in
   39 cookies and have JavaScript code that parses and manipulates cookie values
   40 client-side.
   41 
   42 One new feature
   43 ===============
   44 
   45 Ordinarily, a point release would not include new features, but in the
   46 case of Django 1.1.2, we have made an exception to this rule. Django
   47 1.2 (the next major release of Django) will contain a feature that
   48 will improve protection against Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF)
   49 attacks. This feature requires the use of a new :ttag:`csrf_token`
   50 template tag in all forms that Django renders.
   51 
   52 To make it easier to support both 1.1.X and 1.2.X versions of Django with
   53 the same templates, we have decided to introduce the :ttag:`csrf_token` template
   54 tag to the 1.1.X branch. In the 1.1.X branch, :ttag:`csrf_token` does nothing -
   55 it has no effect on templates or form processing. However, it means that the
   56 same template will work with Django 1.2.
