What’s new in Oscar 1.5?

Removal of deprecated features

These methods/modules have been removed:

  • Profiling middleware. See silk or django-cprofile-middleware for alternatives.
  • Product.min_child_price_incl_tax and Product.min_child_price_excl_tax.
  • oscar.core.logging.handlers.EnvFileHandler()

Minor changes

  • Add billing address to user’s address book during checkout (#1532). Number of usages for billing and shipping
    addresses tracked separately: billing address in UserAddress.num_orders_as_billing_address field and shipping address in UserAddress.num_order_as_shipping_address accordingly.

Backwards incompatible changes in Oscar 1.5

  • Formset classes moved to the separate modules, if you import them directly - please update location or use oscar.core.loading.get_classes() for loading classes (#1957).

    Next classes have new locations:

    • BaseBasketLineFormSet, BasketLineFormSet, BaseSavedLineFormSet, SavedLineFormSet moved to oscar.apps.basket.formsets module;
    • BaseStockRecordFormSet, StockRecordFormSet, BaseProductCategoryFormSet, ProductCategoryFormSet, BaseProductImageFormSet, ProductImageFormSet, BaseProductRecommendationFormSet, ProductRecommendationFormSet, ProductAttributesFormSet moved to oscar.apps.dashboard.catalogue.formsets;
    • OrderedProductFormSet moved to oscar.apps.dashboard.promotions.formsets;
    • LineFormset moved to oscar.apps.wishlists.formsets.
  • SimpleAddToBasketForm doesn’t override the quantity field any more. Instead, it just hides the field declared by AddToBasketForm and sets the quantity to one. This means SimpleAddToBasketForm doesn’t need to be overridden for most cases, but please check things still work as expected for you if you have customized it.

  • OSCAR_CURRENCY_FORMAT setting changed to dictionary form in order to support multi-currency for currency formatting. You can set format, format_type and currency_digits in it. Please refer to documentation for an example.

  • Dashboard order list doesn’t have shortcut filters any more, pass status parameter instead of order_status for the relevant filtering.

  • Google Analytics tracking code has been migrated to Universal Analytics.

  • GOOGLE_ANALYTICS_ID and USE_LESS settings were renamed into OSCAR_GOOGLE_ANALYTICS_ID and OSCAR_USE_LESS respectively in order to keep all Oscar settings under common namespace.

  • Remove display_version and version variables from templates and template context.
