Release Notes

The django-vanilla-views package is not expected to change rapidly, as it's feature set is intended to remain in lock-step with Django's releases.

Deprecation policy

The django-vanilla-views package follows a formal deprecation policy, which is in line with Django's deprecation policy.

The timeline for deprecation of a feature present in version 1.0 would work as follows:

  • Version 1.1 would remain fully backwards compatible with 1.0, but would raise PendingDeprecationWarning warnings if you use the feature that are due to be deprecated. These warnings are silent by default, but can be explicitly enabled when you're ready to start migrating any required changes. For example if you start running your tests using python -Wd manage.py test, you'll be warned of any API changes you need to make.

  • Version 1.2 would escalate these warnings to DeprecationWarning, which is loud by default.

  • Version 1.3 would remove the deprecated bits of API entirely.

Upgrading

To upgrade django-vanilla-views to the latest version, use pip:

pip install -U django-vanilla-views

You can determine your currently installed version using pip freeze:
