Publ v0.5.14 released!

Posted Tuesday, February 4 at 5:40 PM (2 months ago)

Today I released v0.5.14 of Publ, which has a bunch of improvements:

  • Fixed a bug in card retrieval when there’s no summary
  • Admin panel works again
  • Markdown entry headings now get individual permalinks (the presentation of which can be templated)
  • Markdown entry headings can be extracted into an outline to be used for a table of contents
  • Lots of performance improvements around ToC and footnote extraction, and template API functions in general

v0.5.12 released, and lots of documentation fixes

Release notes

Today I got a fire lit under me and decided to do a bunch of bug fixing and general performance improvements.

Changes since v0.5.11:

  • Fixed a micro-optimization which was causing some pretty bad cache problems (I really should write a blog entry about this but tl;dr micro-optimizations are usually bugs in disguise)
  • Fixed an issue which was causing the page render cache to not actually activate most of the time (you know there’s going to be a ramble about this below…)
  • Fixed a bunch of spurious log meessages about nested transactions
  • Refactored the way that markup=False works, making it available from all Markdown/HTML contexts
  • Changed no_smartquotes=True to smartquotes=False (no_smartquotes is retained for template compatibility) (although I missed this on entry.title; I’ve already committed a fix for the next version)
  • Improve the way that the page render cache interacts with templates
  • Fixed an issue where changing a template might cause issues to occur until the cache expires
