Changes

0.4 (svn)

* AS A RESULT OF THESE CHANGES THE DOCS ARE CURRENTLY OUT OF DATE *

  • Added support for encrypted passwords
  • Fixed the IE7 bug in digest middleware
  • Adding SSO sub-directory, redirecting API, and CAS auth handler.
  • Fixed binding check to return none, instead of throwing an Exception (for performance reasons).
  • Moved start_response check outside of app_iter consumption since it must be called by this point to comply with WSGI.
  • Fixed consumption app iter in multi, loading entire response into ram.
  • Adding changelog
  • Added IP and Time based permission objects
  • Started unit tests
  • Extended the user management API and added SQLAlchemy driver and example
  • Restructured the authenticate middleware into induvidual pluggable components
  • Simplified the configuration file system
  • Added OpenID dependencies
  • Removed the larger SQLAlchemy based demos
  • The cookie module uses authkit as a default cookie name, not auth_tkt. Any code which does anything manually with this cookie needs the name changing if it wasn’t explicitly set to auth_tkt in the config file.

0.3.0pre5

  • Changed the arguments to the authkit.authenticate.middleware() factory. You will need to update your middleware setup to use app_conf instead of config_paste for the app_conf dictionary.

0.3

  • Re-written from scratch to be a modular toolkit for building your own auth framework rather than an all-in-one solution.

0.2

  • Re-written from scratch so to use SQLAlchemy only, old driver system considered unnecessary and limiting. Also doesn’t fit in with current Pylons best-practice.

0.1

  • Based on the web.auth 0.6 module from www.pythonweb.org, support for SQLObject driver included
