Development (master)

3.2.1 (2019-03-19)

Minor features:

  • Changed LoadTemplate.loadTemplate{Module,Class}: the loaded module’s __name__ set to just the file name.
  • Use imp for Python 2, importlib for Python 3.

Bug fixes:

  • Fix a bug in LoadTemplate.loadTemplate{Module,Class}: raise ImportError if the template was not found.

CI:

  • At Travis deploy wheels for macOS.
  • At AppVeyor deploy wheels directly to PyPI.

3.2.0 (2019-02-06)

Features:

  • Dropped support for Python 3.3.
  • Implement LoadTemplate.loadTemplate{Module,Class} to load templates from .py[co], .py or .tmpl.
  • CheetahDirOwner caches compiled template in the template directory.
  • CheetahDirOwner now silently ignores errors on compiled templates writing. To get tracebacks set CheetahDirOwner.debuglevel = 1.
  • CheetahDirOwner and DirOwner byte-compile compiled templates to .pyc/.pyo. Errors on writing are silently ignored.

Minor features:

  • Implement Compiler.__unicode__ under Python 2 and Compiler.__bytes__ under Python 3.

Bug fixes:

  • Fix a bug in Compiler.__str__: under Python 2 the method now always returns str; it encodes unicode to str using encoding from the compiled source. Under Python 3 the method decodes bytes to str.

Code:

  • Source code was made flake8-clean using the latest flake8.

Documentation:

  • Remove outdated section markers.
  • Better documentation for ImportHooks.
  • Add an example of a universal makefile.

CI:

  • Run tests with Python 3.7.
  • At Travis deploy sdists and wheels for tags.

3.1.0 (2018-03-03)

Features:

  • Fix Cheetah to work with PyPy. Pull request by Mathias Stearn.

Minor features:

  • Code cleanup: fix code style to satisfy flake8 linter.

Documentation:

  • Rename www directory to docs.

Tests:

  • Run pypy tests at AppVeyor.
  • Use remove-old-files.py from ppu to cleanup pip cache at Travis and AppVeyor.

3.0.1 (2018-02-27)

Bug fixes:

3.0.0 (2017-05-07)

Major features:

  • Stop supporting Python older than 2.7.
  • Update code to work with Python 3.3+. Tested with 3.3, 3.4, 3.5 and 3.6.

Minor features:

  • Use ‘/usr/bin/env python’ for scripts; this allows eggs/wheels to be installed into virtual environments.

Bug fixes:

  • Fix a bug in multiple inheritance (#extend Parent1, Parent2). Pull request by Jonathan Ross Rogers.
  • Fix bugs in pure-python NameMapper.py. Bugs reported by Noah Ingham, patches by Adam Karpierz, tests by Oleg Broytman.

Tests:

  • Run tests at Travis (Linux) and AppVeyor (w32) with Python 2.7, 3.3, 3.4, 3.5 and 3.6; x86 and x64.
