1.2.2

(201X-XX-XX) * Add support for Python 3.7 with Django 2.0+ * Index page only shows related lists for signed-in users with option to

filter based on role.

1.2.1

(2018-07-11)

  • A Django migration was missing from version 1.2.0. This is now added.

1.2

(2018-07-10)

  • Postorius now runs only on Python 3.4+ and supports Django 1.8 and 1.11+
  • Added the ability to set and edit alias_domain to the domains forms.
  • List Create form now allows selecting the style. A style is how a new mailing list is configured.
  • Minimum supported Mailman Core version is now 3.2.0. This is because the styles attribute for MailingList resource is exposed in 3.2, which contains all the default styles supported by Core and their human readable description.
  • Account subscription page now lists all the memberships with their respective roles. This avoids repeated API calls for the way data was displayed before. (Closes #205)
  • Postorius now supports only Django 1.11+.
  • Duplicate MailingList names doesn’t return a 500 error page and instead adds an error to the New MailingList form. (Fixes #237)
  • Pending subscription requests page is now paginated. (See !298)
  • Add owners/moderators form now allows specifying a Display Name, along with their email. (Fixes #254)
  • Members views now show total number of members at the top. (See !315)
  • Fixed a bug where GET on views that only expect a POST would cause 500 server errors instead of 405 method not allowed. (Fixes #185)
  • Member preferences form can now be saved without having to change all the fields. (Fixes #178)
  • Fixed a bug where the ‘Delete’ button to remove list owners didn’t work due to wrong URL being rendered in the templates. (Fixes #274)
  • Require Explicit Destination is added to the Message Acceptance form. (Closes #277)
  • Delete Domain page now shows some extra warning information about all the mailing lists that would be deleted after deleting the Domain. (See !250)
  • Superusers can now view Mailman Core’s current version and REST API version being used under ‘System Information’ menu in the top navigation bar. (See !325)
  • Fixed a bug where 500 error template wouldn’t render properly due to missing context variables in views that render that templates (See !334)
  • Postorius now allows adding and editing templates for email headers, footers and some of the automatic responses sent out by Mailman. (See !327)

1.1.2

(2017-12-27)

  • Added a new reset_passwords command that resets _all_ user’s passwords inside of Core. This password is different from the one Postorius maintains. The Postorius password is the one used for logging users in.
  • Postorius now sets the ‘Display Name’ of the user in Core correctly. This fixes a security vulnerability where user’s display_name would be set as their Core’s password.

1.1.1

(2017-11-17)

  • Improved testing and internal bug fixes.
  • Preserve formatting of Mailing List description in the summary view.
  • Site’s Name isn’t capitalized anymore in the navigation bar.
