  • #97: Add BrowserIDException that is raised by verify when there are issues connecting to the remote verification servie. Update the Verify view to handle these errors.
  • #125: Prevent the Verify view from running reverse on user input and add check to not redirect to URLs with a different host.
  • Remove ability to set a custom name for the Verify redirect parameter: it’s just next.
  • Replace browserid_button with browserid_login and browserid_logout, and make browserid_info a function.
  • #109: Fix issue with unicode strings in the extra_params kwarg for verify.
  • #110: Fix bug where kwargs to authenticate get passed as extra_params to verify. Instead, you can pass any extra parameters in browserid_extra. But please don’t, it’s undocumented for a reason. <3
  • #105: General documentation fixes, add more debug logging for common issues. Add BROWSERID_DISABLE_SANITY_CHECKS setting and remove the need to set SITE_URL in development.
  • Add form_extras parameter to browserid_button.
  • #101, #102: Update the default JavaScript to pass the current user’s email address into to avoid unnecessary auto-login attempts.
  • Add template functions/tags to use for embedding login/logout buttons instead of using your own custom HTML.
  • Add a url kwarg to verify that lets you specify a custom verification service to use.

  • Fix an error in the sample urlconf in the documentation.
  • #98: Fix a bug where login or logout buttons might not be detected by the default JavaScript correctly if <a> element contained extra HTML.
  • Add pass_mock kwarg to mock_browserid, which adds a new argument to the front of the decorated method that is filled with the Mock object used in place of _verify_http_request.
  • Any extra kwargs to BrowserIDBackend.authenticate are passed in the verify request as POST arguments (this will soon be removed, don’t rely on it).

0.7.1 (2012-11-08)

  • Add support for a working logout button. Switching to the Observer API in 0.7 made the issue that we weren’t calling more pronounced, so it makes sense to make a small new release to make it easier to add a logout button.

  • Actually start updating the Changelog again.

  • Add automated testing for Django 1.3.4, 1.4.2, and 1.5a1.
