Release Notes


  • Added migration required for Python 3 (thanks @markus-hinsche).


  • Compatibility changes for Django 1.11 - dropped support for versions of Django earlier than 1.8, and Python 3.4 (Python 2.7 and Python 3.5 are still supported).


  • Modify cache name, to prevent warnings for non-ASCII characters or whitespace (thanks @ad-m).


  • Compatibility changes for Django 1.10.


  • Added a Polish translation and locale (thanks @ad-m).


  • Add support for multiple arguments to both the tinycontent and the tinycontent_simple template tags. See the documentation about Passing Multiple Arguments.
  • Start caching database queries - fetching a TinyContent block by name (as the template tags do), will only hit the database the first time that content block is loaded (unless the content block is changed).


  • Require at least django-autoslug 1.8.0, to fix a warning about unapplied migrations.


  • Drop support for Django 1.4 (it’s quite hard to support Django 1.4 and 1.9 in a single release - since Django 1.4 requires {% load url from future %}, and Django 1.9 doesn’t support it).
  • Ensure the wheel we upload to PyPI is universal.
  • Forward compatibility for Django 1.9 - remove the {% load url from future %} from tinycontent templates.


  • Forwards compatibility change for Django 1.9 - which will remove the version of importlib bundled with Django. All supported versions of Python (2.7, 3.3 and 3.4) have importlib.


  • Dropped support for Python 2.6.
  • Added a built-in markdown filter - you can use it by setting TINYCONTENT_FILTER to ''.
  • Added the ability to include links to files which you can upload via the admin.
  • Added support for setting TINYCONTENT_FILTER to a list of dotted paths, to allow chaining filters.


  • Added the TINYCONTENT_FILTER setting for controlling the way content is output.
  • Improved testing with Travis (we now test all supported Python versions and Django versions).
