Backwards Incompatible Changes

  • Cache Machine previously included custom backends for LocMem, Memcached and PyLibMemcached. These were necessary because the core backends in old versions of Django did not support infinte timeouts. They now do, so Cache Machine’s custom backends are no longer necessary. They have been removed, so you should revert to using the core Django backends.

v0.9.1 (2015-10-22)

  • Fix bug that prevented objects retrieved via cache machine from being re-cached by application code (see PR #103)
  • Fix bug that prevented caching objects forever when using Django <= 1.5 (see PR #104)
  • Fix regression (introduced in 0.8) that broke invalidation when an object was cached via a replica database and later modified or deleted via the primary database, when using primary/replica replication (see PR #105). Note this change may cause unexpected invalidation when sharding across DBs that share both a schema and primary key values or other attributes.

v0.9 (2015-07-29)

  • Support for Python 3
  • A new setting, CACHE_INVALIDATE_ON_CREATE, which facilitates invalidation when a new model object is created. For more information, see Object creation.

v0.8.1 (2015-07-03)

This release is primarily aimed at adding support for more recent versions of Django and catching up on recent contributions.

  • Support for Django 1.7 and Django 1.8
  • Fix bug in parsing of REDIS_BACKEND URI
  • Miscellaneous bug fixes and documentation corrections
  • Dropped support for the old style caching.backends.memcached.CacheClass and caching.backends.locmem.CacheClass classes. Support for this naming has been deprecated since Django 1.3. You will need to switch your project to use MemcachedCache, PyLibMCCache, or LocMemCache in place of CacheClass.
