  • v2.2.0 Changes

    ๐Ÿš€ Unreleased

    • Add new customization points to the Flask app object for many previously global behaviors.

      • flask.url_for will call app.url_for. :issue:4568
      • flask.abort will call app.aborter. Flask.aborter_class and Flask.make_aborter can be used to customize this aborter. :issue:4567
      • flask.redirect will call app.redirect. :issue:4569
    • Refactor register_error_handler to consolidate error checking. Rewrite some error messages to be more consistent. :issue:4559

    • ๐Ÿ–จ Use Blueprint decorators and functions intended for setup after registering the blueprint will show a warning. In the next version, this will become an error just like the application setup methods. :issue:4571

    • before_first_request is deprecated. Run setup code when creating the application instead. :issue:4605

    • Added the View.init_every_request class attribute. If a view subclass sets this to False, the view will not create a new instance on every request. :issue:2520.

    • A flask.cli.FlaskGroup Click group can be nested as a sub-command in a custom CLI. :issue:3263

    • Add --app, --env, and --debug options to the flask CLI, instead of requiring that they are set through environment variables. :issue:2836

    • Add --env-file option to the flask CLI. This allows specifying a dotenv file to load in addition to .env and .flaskenv. :issue:3108

    • It is no longer required to decorate custom CLI commands on app.cli or blueprint.cli with @with_appcontext, an app context will already be active at that point. :issue:2410

    • SessionInterface.get_expiration_time uses a timezone-aware value. :pr:4645

    • View functions can return generators directly instead of wrapping them in a Response. :pr:4629

    • Add stream_template and stream_template_string functions to render a template as a stream of pieces. :pr:4629

  • v2.1.3 Changes

    ๐Ÿš€ Unreleased

    • Inline some optional imports that are only used for certain CLI commands. :pr:4606
    • Relax type annotation for after_request functions. :issue:4600
    • ๐Ÿ“ฆ instance_path for namespace packages uses the path closest to the imported submodule. :issue:4600
  • v2.1.2 Changes

    ๐Ÿš€ Released 2022-04-28

    • Fix type annotation for json.loads, it accepts str or bytes. :issue:4519
    • The --cert and --key options on flask run can be given in either order. :issue:4459
  • v2.1.1 Changes

    ๐Ÿš€ Released on 2022-03-30

    • ๐Ÿ“‡ Set the minimum required version of importlib_metadata to 3.6.0, which is required on Python < 3.10. :issue:4502
  • v2.1.0 Changes

    ๐Ÿš€ Released 2022-03-28

    • ๐Ÿ‘ Drop support for Python 3.6. :pr:4335
    • โšก๏ธ Update Click dependency to >= 8.0. :pr:4008
    • ๐Ÿšš Remove previously deprecated code. :pr:4337

      • The CLI does not pass script_info to app factory functions.
      • config.from_json is replaced by config.from_file(name, load=json.load).
      • json functions no longer take an encoding parameter.
      • safe_join is removed, use werkzeug.utils.safe_join instead.
      • total_seconds is removed, use timedelta.total_seconds instead.
      • The same blueprint cannot be registered with the same name. Use name= when registering to specify a unique name.
      • The test client's as_tuple parameter is removed. Use response.request.environ instead. :pr:4417
    • Some parameters in send_file and send_from_directory were renamed in 2.0. The deprecation period for the old names is extended to 2.2. Be sure to test with deprecation warnings visible.

      • attachment_filename is renamed to download_name.
      • cache_timeout is renamed to max_age.
      • add_etags is renamed to etag.
      • filename is renamed to path.
    • ๐Ÿ—„ The RequestContext.g property is deprecated. Use g directly or AppContext.g instead. :issue:3898

    • copy_current_request_context can decorate async functions. :pr:4303

    • ๐Ÿ“‡ The CLI uses importlib.metadata instead of setuptools to load command entry points. :issue:4419

    • Overriding FlaskClient.open will not cause an error on redirect. :issue:3396

    • Add an --exclude-patterns option to the flask run CLI command to specify patterns that will be ignored by the reloader. :issue:4188

    • 0๏ธโƒฃ When using lazy loading (the default with the debugger), the Click context from the flask run command remains available in the loader thread. :issue:4460

    • Deleting the session cookie uses the httponly flag. :issue:4485

    • Relax typing for errorhandler to allow the user to use more precise types and decorate the same function multiple times. :issue:4095, 4295, 4297

    • Fix typing for __exit__ methods for better compatibility with ExitStack. :issue:4474

    • From Werkzeug, for redirect responses the Location header URL will remain relative, and exclude the scheme and domain, by default. :pr:4496

    • ๐Ÿ›  Add Config.from_prefixed_env() to load config values from environment variables that start with FLASK_ or another prefix. This parses values as JSON by default, and allows setting keys in nested dicts. :pr:4479

  • v2.0.3 Changes

    ๐Ÿš€ Released 2022-02-14

    • โœ… The test client's as_tuple parameter is deprecated and will be removed in Werkzeug 2.1. It is now also deprecated in Flask, to be removed in Flask 2.1, while remaining compatible with both in 2.0.x. Use response.request.environ instead. :pr:4341
    • Fix type annotation for errorhandler decorator. :issue:4295
    • โช Revert a change to the CLI that caused it to hide ImportError tracebacks when importing the application. :issue:4307
    • app.json_encoder and json_decoder are only passed to dumps and loads if they have custom behavior. This improves performance, mainly on PyPy. :issue:4349
    • Clearer error message when after_this_request is used outside a request context. :issue:4333
  • v2.0.2 Changes

    ๐Ÿš€ Released 2021-10-04

    • Fix type annotation for teardown_* methods. :issue:4093
    • Fix type annotation for before_request and before_app_request decorators. :issue:4104
    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed the issue where typing requires template global decorators to accept functions with no arguments. :issue:4098
    • ๐Ÿ‘ Support View and MethodView instances with async handlers. :issue:4112
    • โœจ Enhance typing of app.errorhandler decorator. :issue:4095
    • ๐Ÿ–จ Fix registering a blueprint twice with differing names. :issue:4124
    • Fix the type of static_folder to accept pathlib.Path. :issue:4150
    • jsonify handles decimal.Decimal by encoding to str. :issue:4157
    • Correctly handle raising deferred errors in CLI lazy loading. :issue:4096
    • The CLI loader handles **kwargs in a create_app function. :issue:4170
    • Fix the order of before_request and other callbacks that trigger before the view returns. They are called from the app down to the closest nested blueprint. :issue:4229
  • v2.0.1 Changes

    ๐Ÿš€ Released 2021-05-21

    • Re-add the filename parameter in send_from_directory. The filename parameter has been renamed to path, the old name is deprecated. :pr:4019
    • Mark top-level names as exported so type checking understands imports in user projects. :issue:4024
    • Fix type annotation for g and inform mypy that it is a namespace object that has arbitrary attributes. :issue:4020
    • Fix some types that weren't available in Python 3.6.0. :issue:4040
    • Improve typing for send_file, send_from_directory, and get_send_file_max_age. :issue:4044, :pr:4026
    • ๐Ÿ–จ Show an error when a blueprint name contains a dot. The . has special meaning, it is used to separate (nested) blueprint names and the endpoint name. :issue:4041
    • ๐Ÿ–จ Combine URL prefixes when nesting blueprints that were created with a url_prefix value. :issue:4037
    • Roll back a change to the order that URL matching was done. The URL is again matched after the session is loaded, so the session is available in custom URL converters. :issue:4053
    • ๐Ÿ—„ Re-add deprecated Config.from_json, which was accidentally removed early. :issue:4078
    • Improve typing for some functions using Callable in their type signatures, focusing on decorator factories. :issue:4060
    • ๐Ÿ–จ Nested blueprints are registered with their dotted name. This allows different blueprints with the same name to be nested at different locations. :issue:4069
    • ๐Ÿ–จ register_blueprint takes a name option to change the (pre-dotted) name the blueprint is registered with. This allows the same blueprint to be registered multiple times with unique names for url_for. Registering the same blueprint with the same name multiple times is deprecated. :issue:1091
    • Improve typing for stream_with_context. :issue:4052
  • v2.0.0 Changes

    ๐Ÿš€ Released 2021-05-11

    • ๐Ÿ‘ Drop support for Python 2 and 3.5.
    • Bump minimum versions of other Pallets projects: Werkzeug >= 2, Jinja2 >= 3, MarkupSafe >= 2, ItsDangerous >= 2, Click >= 8. Be sure to check the change logs for each project. For better compatibility with other applications (e.g. Celery) that still require Click 7, there is no hard dependency on Click 8 yet, but using Click 7 will trigger a DeprecationWarning and Flask 2.1 will depend on Click 8.
    • ๐Ÿ‘ JSON support no longer uses simplejson. To use another JSON module, override app.json_encoder and json_decoder. :issue:3555
    • ๐Ÿ—„ The encoding option to JSON functions is deprecated. :pr:3562
    • ๐Ÿ—„ Passing script_info to app factory functions is deprecated. This was not portable outside the flask command. Use click.get_current_context().obj if it's needed. :issue:3552
    • ๐Ÿ‘ The CLI shows better error messages when the app failed to load when looking up commands. :issue:2741
    • Add :meth:sessions.SessionInterface.get_cookie_name to allow setting the session cookie name dynamically. :pr:3369
    • Add :meth:Config.from_file to load config using arbitrary file loaders, such as toml.load or json.load. :meth:Config.from_json is deprecated in favor of this. :pr:3398
    • The flask run command will only defer errors on reload. Errors present during the initial call will cause the server to exit with the traceback immediately. :issue:3431
    • :func:send_file raises a :exc:ValueError when passed an :mod:io object in text mode. Previously, it would respond with 200 OK and an empty file. :issue:3358
    • When using ad-hoc certificates, check for the cryptography library instead of PyOpenSSL. :pr:3492
    • When specifying a factory function with FLASK_APP, keyword argument can be passed. :issue:3553
    • When loading a .env or .flaskenv file, the current working directory is no longer changed to the location of the file. :pr:3560
    • When returning a (response, headers) tuple from a view, the headers replace rather than extend existing headers on the response. For example, this allows setting the Content-Type for jsonify(). Use response.headers.extend() if extending is desired. :issue:3628
    • The Scaffold class provides a common API for the Flask and Blueprint classes. Blueprint information is stored in attributes just like Flask, rather than opaque lambda functions. This is intended to improve consistency and maintainability. :issue:3215
    • Include samesite and secure options when removing the session cookie. :pr:3726
    • ๐Ÿ‘ Support passing a pathlib.Path to static_folder. :pr:3579
    • send_file and send_from_directory are wrappers around the implementations in werkzeug.utils. :pr:3828
    • Some send_file parameters have been renamed, the old names are deprecated. attachment_filename is renamed to download_name. cache_timeout is renamed to max_age. add_etags is renamed to etag. :pr:3828, 3883
    • send_file passes download_name even if as_attachment=False by using Content-Disposition: inline. :pr:3828
    • send_file sets conditional=True and max_age=None by default. Cache-Control is set to no-cache if max_age is not set, otherwise public. This tells browsers to validate conditional requests instead of using a timed cache. :pr:3828
    • ๐Ÿ—„ helpers.safe_join is deprecated. Use werkzeug.utils.safe_join instead. :pr:3828
    • The request context does route matching before opening the session. This could allow a session interface to change behavior based on request.endpoint. :issue:3776
    • Use Jinja's implementation of the |tojson filter. :issue:3881
    • Add route decorators for common HTTP methods. For example, @app.post("/login") is a shortcut for @app.route("/login", methods=["POST"]). :pr:3907
    • ๐Ÿ‘ Support async views, error handlers, before and after request, and teardown functions. :pr:3412
    • ๐Ÿ–จ Support nesting blueprints. :issue:593, 1548, :pr:3923
    • 0๏ธโƒฃ Set the default encoding to "UTF-8" when loading .env and .flaskenv files to allow to use non-ASCII characters. :issue:3931
    • 0๏ธโƒฃ flask shell sets up tab and history completion like the default python shell if readline is installed. :issue:3941
    • ๐Ÿ—„ helpers.total_seconds() is deprecated. Use timedelta.total_seconds() instead. :pr:3962
    • Add type hinting. :pr:3973.
  • v1.2.0 Changes
