1.4 (2017-05-31)

  • Fixed false positive “default_language” string match. (issue #17) [iham]
  • Fix conflict between flake8-plone-hasattr and flake8-plone-api [iham]

1.3 (2017-05-31)

  • added support for sublimetext (stdin/filename handling) [iham]
  • Release universal wheels. [gforcada]

1.2 (2016-07-05)

  • Fix the logic to report if a line has a replacement needed. Before the internal data got a parenthesis at the end there was some extra logic checking for end of line or a next character. But since some time ago a parenthesis was added as well, which made some checkers never report (namely getToolByName and probably lots more). [gforcada]

1.1 (2016-03-29)

  • Remove restrictedTraverse as a suggestion to be replaced with get_view, there are way too many false positives. [gforcada]

1.0 (2016-03-01)

  • Report which version of plone.api is needed to be able to apply each suggested replacement. [gforcada]
  • Add methods from plone.api 1.5. [gforcada]

0.6 (2015-10-06)

  • Instead of looking for catalog, look for .catalog, this should avoid some false positives [do3cc]

0.5 (2015-08-17)

  • Improve testing so that physical files are no longer needed. [gforcada]
  • Remove JSON data, use a regular python dictionary. [gforcada]
  • Fix old approach being a substring of another method (getSite and getSiteManager). Fixes [gforcada]
  • Improve test coverage. [gforcada]

0.4 (2015-08-16)

  • Ignore XXX old usages, they are mostly a placeholder to keep the mapping easier. [gforcada]

0.3 (2015-08-16)

  • I give up, collapse everything into a single file, should be easy… [gforcada]

0.2.post1 (2015-08-16)

  • Yet another try. [gforcada]

0.2.post0 (2015-08-16)

  • Still not… [gforcada]

0.2 (2015-08-16)

  • All previous releases are broken, attempting to fix it (setuptools is playing with me). [gforcada]

0.1.post1 (2015-08-15)

  • Minor README enhancement. [gforcada]

0.1.post0 (2015-08-15)

  • Fix version number location. [gforcada]

0.1 (2015-08-15)

  • Initial release [gforcada]
  • Add buildout and other stuff. [gforcada]
  • Add a mapping.json to add Plone API method calls to old usages data [gforcada]
  • Add a to convert mapping.json into a reverse mapping (to be used by the flake8 plugin). [gforcada]
  • Create the flake8 plugin per se that iterates over the files and searches for old usages (coming from [gforcada]
  • Add tests and badges for travis and coveralls [gforcada]
