3.0 (2018-06-22)

Huge release. Full cleanup and update of the entire codebase. Details:

  • Requires Python 3.4 and up.
  • Dropped support for Django 1.8 to 1.10 due to it’s general end of support. The project will likely work well but it’s no longer specifically tested.
  • All views are now class based and use the latest generic based views sugar.
  • Django 1.11 based templates, forms, views, models, etc.
  • Added pipenv support for local development.
  • Added AppConfig support to set and maintain settings.
  • Added “Rendered Text” lexer with support for rST and Markdown.
  • Added Content Security Policy features, with django-csp (this is mainly required for the “rendered” text feature).
  • Removed jQuery dependency, all Javascript is native.
  • Removed Bootstrap dependency.
  • Removed ‘Maximum History’ limit setting.
  • Removed translations.
  • Removed “Suspicious” middleware which was never been used, documented, and also not functional for a while.
  • Fixed issues around leading whitespace in lines.
  • Fixed CMD+Enter form submission shortcut in Firefox.

2.14 (no public release)

  • Django 1.11 compatibility. But not Django 2.0 yet.
  • Removed “Suspicious” middleware which was never been used, documented, and also not functional for a while.

2.13 (2017-01-20)

  • (Backwards incompatible) Removal of django-mptt and therefor the removal of a tree based snippet list, due to performance reasons with large snippet counts. Snippets still have a ‘parent’ relation if it’s an answer of another snippet, however this is no longer a Nested Set. The UI is simplified too and the user can now only compare an answer to it’s parent snippet. I believe this is the major use case anyway.
  • (Backwards incompatible) Removal of the “Gist” button feature.
  • Fixed broken 404 view handler in Django 1.9+.
  • Python 3.6 and Django 1.10 compatibility and tests.

2.12 (2016-09-06)

  • Fixed “Content Type” problem with Django 1.10.
  • Development requirements now use a different version scheme to be compatible with older pip versions.

2.11 (2016-09-04)

  • Django 1.10 Support
  • R Lexer is enabled by default
  • Minor fixes and improvements.

2.10 (2016-03-23)

  • Dropped Django 1.4 and 1.7 support!
  • Full Django 1.8 support
  • Full Django 1.9 support
  • C++ Lexer is enabled by default
  • (Backwards incompatible) All API calls must pass the data within a POST request. It can’t mix POST and GET arguments anymore. This was weird behavior anyway and is likely no issue for any paste plugin out there.

2.9 (2015-08-12)

  • Full Django 1.7 support
  • Full Django 1.8 support
  • New Django migrations, with fallback to South migrations if South is installed. If you want to switch from South to native Django migrations, and have an existing databsae, fake the initial migrations: migrate –fake-initial
  • Added full i18n support and several languages
  • More settings can be overrridden, like the jQuery URL, site name and wether you want to enable Gthub Gist.
  • Ships a middleware that blocks anonymous proxies and TOR nodes. Not enabled by default.

2.8 (2014-08-02)

  • The API create view has a new argument ‘filename’ which is used to determine the lexer out of a given filename.
  • Fixed a XSS bug where HTML tags were not properly escaped with the simple code lexer.

2.7 (2014-06-08)

  • “never” as an expiration choice is enable by default! This creates snippets in the database which are never purged.
  • The API create call now supports to set the exiration time.
  • Some simple Bootstrap 3 support.
  • Gist fixes on Python 3.

2.6 (2014-04-12)

  • Fix for the rare case of duplicate slug (secret id) generation.
  • A new ‘code’ lexer renders source code with no highlighting.
  • Whitespace fixes with tab indention and word wrap mode.
  • Installation docs.

2.5 (2014-01-21)

  • IRC lexer is now in the default lexer list.
  • One-Time snippet support. Snippets get automatically deleted after the another user looks at it.
  • Toggle wordwrap for code snippets.
  • General UI and readability improvements.

2.4 (2014-01-11)

  • API accepts the format or lexer via GET too. You can call an API url like and have the body in POST only.
  • Added an option to keep snippets forever.
  • ABAP lexer is now in the default lexer list.

2.3 (2014-01-07)

  • API Documentation.
  • Full test coverage.
  • Removed Twitter button from homepage.
  • Slug generation is less predictable.

2.2 (2013-12-18)
