1.1 (2016-06-03)

  • PR #8: Tolerate empty value for Content-Length header.
  • PR #7: Suppress UnicodeDecodeError when query strings contain non ASCII characters..
  • PR #5: Avoid breaking when wsgi.input has no seek() method.
  • Add support for testing under Travis.
  • Drop support for Python 2.6, 3.2.
  • Add support for Python 3.4, 3,5, and PyPy3.

1.0.2 (2013-07-02)

  • Fix reponse logger handling of WSGI app_iter-as-bytes under Py3k.

1.0.1 (2013-05-17)

  • Work around URLs which contain invalid (unquoted) characters.
  • Restored 100% unit test coverage.

1.0 (2013-04-09)

  • Added support for recording, logging and displaying the request body (thanks to Andreas Motl for the patch).

1.0b1 (2013-01-30)

  • Add support for bulding docs and testing doctest snippets under tox.
  • Add docs alias (installs Sphinx).
  • Add support for Python 3.2 / 3.3.
  • Drop support for Python 2.4 / 2.5.
  • Some typo fixes and enhancements to xsl stylesheet

0.7.3 (2012-03-29)

  • This release is the last which will maintain support for Python 2.4 / Python 2.5.
  • Added support for continuous integration using tox and jenkins.
  • Added ‘ dev’ alias (runs develop plus installs nose and coverage).

0.7.2 (2011-04-18)

0.7.1 (2010-03-11)

  • Sphinxified docs.
  • Don’t compute tracelog records unless we are going to write them.

0.7 (2009/09/06)

  • The iterator returned by an application was closed too soon when using the responselogger middleware, resulting in, e.g. errors from paste.fileapp complaining about “file already closed”.
  • If the keep parameter in the “responselogger” middleware is set to zero, no entries are logged (not even one, as previously may have happened).
  • Better test coverage.
  • Ignore HTTP errors in post-mortem debug middleware. The exceptions we want to catch here are application-level. A configuration option has been added to keep the old behavior.
  • Added middleware “threads” to debug threads (based on an adaptation of Florent Guillaume’s “DeadlockDebugger” product for Zope 2).

0.6.2 (2008/07/03)

  • Show a “short” URL in the debug UI.

0.6.1 (2008/07/03)

  • Fix debug UI bug: show escaped body regardless of content-type.

0.6 (2008/07/02)

  • Fix logging bug. Symptom: AttributeError: ‘NoneType’ object has no attribute ‘info’

0.5 (2008/06/30)

  • Make debug request id reflect approximate UNIX time rather than a random debug id.
  • Deal with responses via a generator; don’t unwind response bodies into memory.
  • Default max_bodysize is now 3K rather than the entire response body.
  • User interface; keep entries around to show in GUI. See /__repoze.debug/static/debugui.html.
  • We now write two logs: a verbose log, and a trace log. The verbose log contains information about headers, request information, response bodies, etc. The trace log is more compact and is written in essence to be parsed by a tool.
  • The ‘filename’ option in Paste config is now ‘verbose_log’.
  • Port Zope’s ‘requestprofiler’ script to WSGI. Invoke via ‘wsgirequestprofiler’ to see help; operates against ‘trace’ log.

0.4 (2008/06/25)

  • Add pdbpm middleware for dropping into the post-mortem debugger upon an exception (copied from repoze.errorlog).

0.3 (2008/06/25)

  • Add ‘canary’ middleware for detecting environment dictionary leaks. Add to your Paste config via ‘egg:repoze.debug#canary’; it takes no arguments. If refcounts to repoze.debug.canary.Canary grow without bound, you know you are leaking WSGI environment dictionaries.
  • Add source url to response logging.

0.2 (2008/06/14)

  • Add warning if content-length != body length.

0.1 (2008/06/13)

  • Initial release.
