Release Notes for Trac 0.11 Genshi Release
Preliminary Note: - Trac 0.11 is still in heavy development and undergoing a lot of changes.
- New template engine for generating content (Genshi)
- New default syntax highlighter (Pygments)
- Improved user preferences subsystem, among which the possibility for an user to select his time zone and disable access keys
- The WebAdmin plugin is now an integral part of Trac
- Blame support in the repository browser
Detailed User Visible Changes
Time zone support
Each user can select which time zone they want timestamps to be presented in. If pytz is installed a complete list of time zones will be available, otherwise Trac will fall back on a shorter list from an internal time zone implementation.
Setuptools is now used for the packaging
This means you'll be able to just do
once we've made the release.
It also means that a number of things had to be changed to make this work correctly. In particular, Trac no longer implicitly assumes nor installs global data in the
$prefix/share/trac. Instead, you'll have to modify the configuration of your project environments to explicitly “inherit” a global configuration in trac.ini, for example:
[inherit] file = /etc/trac/trac.ini
This will load the configuration from the
/etc/trac/trac.ini file, while of course allowing to override any global settings in the environment's configuration.
In that global configuration, you can specify shared directories for templates and plugins, e.g.:
[inherit] plugins_dir = /etc/trac/plugins/ templates_dir = /etc/trac/templates/
Note: naming of these options may still change until the final 0.11 release
Improved Syntax Highlighting
Lots of minor improvements
[trac] base_urlsetting is now mandatory for generating correct URLs outside the context of a user request.
[trac] templates_dirsetting is considered harmful… You probably need to remove that setting when you browse Trac and get the following plain text error:
TemplateNotFound: Template "error.html" not found
The change in templating engines necessitated a change in wiki macros. The HelloWorld and Timestamp macros which are distributed with trac will not work as released.
Genshi template engine
Trac used to handle time informations as
Now we're using
Internal API changes
A detailed view of the API changes since 0.10.x can be found in TracDev/ApiChanges/0.11.
Many thanks to the growing number of people who have, and continue to, support the project. Also our thanks to all people providing feedback and bug reports that helps us making Trac better, easier to use and more effective.
Without your invaluable help, Trac would not evolve. Thank you all.
Finally, we offer hope that Trac will prove itself useful to like-minded programmers around the world, and that this release will prove an improvement over the last version.
Please let us know. :-)
