Version 0.3.0, 16 July 2010:
- added tests infrastructure, code coverage is around 70%;
- import paths and class names are changed. Old class names and paths are deprecated but still work;
- dashboard.modules.AppList, dashboard.modules.ModelList and menu.items.AppList now have ability to display any models from different apps (using glob syntax) via models and exclude parameters. The order is now preserved. See #15;
- implemented dashboard module groups : you can now group modules in tabs, accordion or in a stacked layout.
Bugfixes and minor changes
- moved the menu and dashboard template dirs in a “admin_tools” directory to avoid name conflicts with other apps, for example: django-cms (see: http://github.com/digi604/django-cms-2.0/issues/issue/397/);
- fixed bookmark bugs. The saved url was urlencoded, so we need to decode it before we save it. Added a clean_url method to the BookmarkForm. Fixes #25;
- build urlpatterns conditionally regarding the content of INSTALLED_APPS;
- better display of selected menu items;
- avoid a useless ajax GET request for retrieving dashboard preferences;
- upgraded jquery and jquery ui and renamed the files to more generic names;
- don’t show bookmark form if NoReverseError. This was breaking the django.contrib.auth unit tests;
- fixed url lookup for remove bookmark form;
- fixed issue #26 (menu bar showing for non-staff users) and also updated templates to match the django 1.2 templates;
- fixed issue #29 : Django 1.2 admin base template change;
- changed the way js files are loaded, hopefully now they are loaded syncronously (fixes issue #32);
- fixed issue #33: empty applist menu items should not be displayed;
- fixed issue #34: can’t drag modules into an empty column;
- fixed issue #35 (wrong docstring for menu).

Backwards incompatible changes in 0.2.0
Now, django-admin-tools stores menu and dashboard preferences in the database, so you’ll need to run syncdb and to add the django-admin-tools urls to your urlconf. These steps are described in details in the documentation. You’ll also need to add admin_tools to your INSTALLED_APPS for the locales to work (this was not documented in previous versions).
