Release Notes for Trac 0.11 Genshi Release

Preliminary Note: - Trac 0.11 is still in heavy development and undergoing a lot of changes.

Highlights

  • 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
  • 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

TBD. See log:sandbox/setuptools

Improved Syntax Highlighting

Trac can now use the Pygments syntax highlighter out-of-the-box. This is a much nicer syntax highlighter than the one previously supported (SilverCity, Enscript and PHP).

Lots of minor improvements

Caveats

  • The [trac] base_url setting is now mandatory for generating correct URLs outside the context of a user request.
  • The [trac] templates_dir setting 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
    

Developer-visible changes

Genshi template engine

Trac now uses the Genshi template engine instead of ClearSilver. Plugins using the latter will still be supported in Trac 0.11, but probably not longer.

datetime everywhere

Trac used to handle time informations as int timestamps. Now we're using datetime objects.

Internal API changes

A detailed view of the API changes since 0.10.x can be found in TracDev/ApiChanges/0.11.

Acknowledgements

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 make 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. :-)
