Django Evolution 0.6.5

Release date: August 15, 2011

New Features

  • Added a built-in evolution to remove the Message model in Django 1.4 SVN.

    Django 1.4 SVN removes the Message model from django.contrib.auth. This would break evolutions, since there wasn’t an evolution for this. We now install one if we detect that the Message model is gone.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed the version association for baseline evolutions for apps.

    The new code for installing a baseline evolution for new apps in Django Evolution 0.6.4 was associating the wrong Version model with the Evolution. This doesn’t appear to cause any real-world problems, but it does make it harder to see the proper evolution history in the database.
