initial_rows: the rows you pass (or that gets created by
auto__model) is stored unchanged here
initial_rows+ sorting applied
sorted_rows+ filtering applied
sorted_and_filtered_rows+ pagination applied
rows: this is now a property and will map to the old behavior which is the “most applied” member that exists
Fixed passing dunder paths to
auto__include. You got a weird crash if the target of the path was a foreign key. There are still issues to be resolved adjacent to this, but the base case now works.

Fixed a case of a silent overwrite that could be surprising. This was found during reading the code and has never happened to us in practice.
Style fixes for bulma
Fix so that style application does not alter definitions destructively. This could lead to some strange behavior if you tried to switch between styles, and it could leak over definitions between things you would not expect.
The title of
Nonewhen there is no model
Assets as first class concept. You can now insert asset definitions into your style with
assets__js=...instead of defining a
base_template. This change also removes the base templates for all the built in styles as they are now obsolete.
Made it easy to hide the label of a Field by setting
Internationalization! iommi now has i18n support and ships with English, German and Swedish languages out of the box. We welcome more translations.

Added blocks (
iommi_bottom) as useful hook points to add custom data in the templates if you don’t need a totally new template but want to just customize a little bit.
The default sort_key on a Column.foreign_key now looks at the searchable field of the remote field (‘name’ by default). This means by default sorting will mostly be more what you expect.
Changed the error from get_search_field() for non-unique name to a warning.
Removed <table> for layout in query advanced/simple stuff.
Don’t warn for missing register_search_fields when attr=None
Set admin to bootstrap by default.

Added form for login. Used by the admin but also usable from your code.
Fixed foundation styling for query form.
Field.help. This is the fragment that renders the help text for a

Table.outeras a tag you can style that encompasses the entire table part.
Form.h_tagrendering inside the form tag to make it stylable as a coherent whole.

The Admin is now opt in, not opt out.
The admin is now MUCH prettier and better.
Tableare now rendered above the table by default. Set

Many misc improvements
Table.bulk. The old name was a mistake as the name was always
bulk. This meant that styling didn’t work like you expected and the pick feature also lead you down the wrong path.
Support user inputted relative dates/datetimes
Support more time formats automatically
Introduced Filter.parse() which is a hook point for handling special parsing in the query language. The query language will no longer try to convert to integers, floats and dates for you. You have to specify a parse() method.
traversablekey to evaluate parameters. Think of it like something similar to

Various bug fixes

Accidentally changed default style to foundation, change back to bootstrap
Improved usability: Don’t fall back to default template name if the user specified an explicit template name: fail on TemplateNotFound
Style on root uses correct base template
Allow model fields called
register_name_field. This new system is a list of field names and not just a single field. There is also new searching and filtering behavior based on this that means you will get better search results
field_nameas used by model factories is replaced with
model_field_name. If you used
register_factoryyou will need to change this. The field names on
Filterare also renamed.
Support fields named

Fix include to make None mean False
Change Filter.text to search using icontains instead of iexact by default in the basic search mode

Parts that are None should not be collected. This affected the admin where it printed “None” below the “Admin” link.
Added header for bulk edit form in tables
Fixed textarea readonly when field is not editable
Fixed is_paginated function on Paginator
Add request to evaluate parameters
Make evaluate and evaluate_recursive match even the

No dispatch command on a POST is invalid and will now produce an error

Fixed data-endpoint attribute on table
Fixed tbody endpoint and added a div to make the endpoint easier to use
Fixed an issue where fragments couldn’t be customized later if built with the
Fragment. This should be mostly transparent.
You can now pass multiple argument to

rowsin some ways.
Fixed setting active on nested submenus where the parent had url None
Include iommi/base_bootstrap.html and iommi/base_semantic_ui.html in package, and use them if no base.html is present. This improves the out of the box experience for new projects a lot

Respect auto__include order
boolean_tristate should be the default for the Field of a Column.boolean
New class Header that is used to automatically get h1/h2/etc tags according to nesting of headers
Table.rows should be able to be evaluated
Added feature that you can type ‘now’ into date/datetime/time fields
Feature to be able to force rendering of paginator for single page tables
Paginator fixes: it’s now no longer possible to use the Django paginator, but the iommi paginator is more full features in trade.
Removed jQuery dependency for JS parts
Big improvements to the Menu component
filters that have freetext mode now hide their field by default
Added “pick” in the debug toolbar. This is a feature to quickly find the part of the document you want to configure

Major improvements to the admin
Lots and lots of cleanup and bug fixes
