datetime values are timezone-aware with
tzinfo=timezone.utc. This applies to anything using
IfRange.date. When comparing values, the other values must also be aware, or these values must be made naive. When passing parameters or setting attributes, naive values are still assumed to be in UTC. :pr:`2040`
- Merge all request and response wrapper mixin code into single
Response classes. Using the mixin classes is no longer necessary and will show a deprecation warning. Checking
BaseResponse will show a deprecation warning and check against
Response instead. :issue:`1963`
- JSON support no longer uses simplejson if it’s installed. To use another JSON module, override
Response.get_json() no longer caches the result, and the

request.headers instead of
request.environ to look up header attributes. :pr:`1808`
- The test
Client request methods (
client.get, etc.) always return an instance of
TestResponse. In addition to the normal behavior of
Response, this class provides
request with the request that produced the response, and
history to track intermediate responses when
follow_redirects is used. :issue:`763, 1894`
- The test
Client request methods takes an
auth parameter to add an
Authorization header. It can be an
Authorization object or a
(username, password) tuple for
Basic auth. :pr:`1809`
response.close() on a response from the test

wb+ mode for better compatibility with some libraries. :issue:`1961`
- Use SHA-1 instead of MD5 for generating ETags and the debugger pin, and in some tests. MD5 is not available in some environments, such as FIPS 140. This may invalidate some caches since the ETag will be different. :issue:`1897`
Cross-Origin-Embedder-Policy response header properties. :pr:`2008`
run_simple tries to show a valid IP address when binding to all addresses, instead of

Response have been extracted to contain all the behavior that is not WSGI or IO dependent. These are not a public API, they are part of an ongoing refactor to let ASGI frameworks use Werkzeug. :pr:`2005`
multipart/form-data has been refactored to use sans-io patterns. This should also make parsing forms with large binary file uploads significantly faster. :issue:`1788, 875`
LocalProxy matches the current Python data model special methods, including all r-ops, in-place ops, and async.
__class__ is proxied, so the proxy will look like the object in more cases, including
issubclass(type(obj), LocalProxy) to check if an object is actually a proxy. :issue:`1754`
ContextVar on Python 3.7+ instead of
request.values does not include
form for GET requests (even though GET bodies are undefined). This prevents bad caching proxies from caching form data instead of query strings. :pr:`2037`

utils.invalidate_cached_property() to invalidate cached properties. (:pr:`1474`)
- Directive keys for the
Set-Cookie response header are not ignored when parsing the
Cookie request header. This allows cookies with names such as “expires” and “version”. (:issue:`1495`)
- Request cookies are parsed into a
MultiDict to capture all values for cookies with the same key.
cookies[key] returns the first value rather than the last. Use
cookies.getlist(key) to get all values.

Deprecate most top-level attributes provided by the
werkzeug module in favor of direct imports. The deprecated imports will be removed in version 1.0.
For example, instead of
import werkzeug; werkzeug.url_quote, do
from werkzeug.urls import url_quote. A deprecation warning will show the correct import to use.
werkzeug.routing should also be imported instead of accessed, but for technical reasons can’t show a warning.
- Work around a bug in pip that caused the reloader to fail on Windows when the script was an entry point. This fixes the issue with Flask’s flask run command failing with “No module named Scriptsflask”. :issue:`1614`
ProxyFix trusts the
X-Forwarded-Proto header by default. :issue:`1630`
- The deprecated
num_proxies argument to
x_host to match 0.14 behavior. This is intended to make intermediate upgrades less disruptive, but the argument will still be removed in 1.0. :issue:`1630`

LintMiddleware to work on Python 3. (:issue:`1510`)
- The debugger detects cycles in chained exceptions and does not time out in that case. (:issue:`1536`)
- When running the development server in Docker, the debugger security pin is now unique per container.
Rule code generation uses a filename that coverage will ignore. The previous value, “generated”, was causing coverage to fail. (:issue:`1487`)
- The test client removes the cookie header if there are no persisted cookies. This fixes an issue introduced in 0.15.0 where the cookies from the original request were used for redirects, causing functions such as logout to fail. (:issue:`1491`)
- The test client copies the environ before passing it to the app, to prevent in-place modifications from affecting redirect requests. (:issue:`1498`)
"werkzeug" logger only adds a handler if there is no handler configured for its level in the logging chain. This avoids double logging if other code configures logging first. (:issue:`1492`)

Response.get_wsgi_headers() is relative to the current path rather than the root path. (:issue:`693`, :pr:`718`, :pr:`1315`)
- 412 responses once again include entity headers and an error message in the body. They were originally omitted when implementing
If-Match (:pr:`1233`), but the spec doesn’t seem to disallow it. (:issue:`1231`, :pr:`1255`)
- The Content-Length header is removed for 1xx and 204 responses. This fixes a previous change where no body would be sent, but the header would still be present. The new behavior matches RFC 7230. (:pr:`1294`)
Unauthorized takes a
www_authenticate parameter to set the
WWW-Authenticate header for the response, which is technically required for a valid 401 response. (:issue:`772`, :pr:`795`)

Range validates that list of range tuples passed to it would produce a valid
Range header. (:pr:`1412`)
FileStorage looks up attributes on
stream._file if they don’t exist on

tempfile.SpooledTemporaryFile() didn’t implement all of
io.IOBase. See https://github.com/python/cpython/pull/3249. (:pr:`1409`)
CombinedMultiDict.copy() returns a shallow mutable copy as a
MultiDict. The copy no longer reflects changes to the combined dicts, but is more generally useful. (:pr:`1420`)
- The version of jQuery used by the debugger is updated to 3.3.1. (:pr:`1390`)
- The debugger correctly renders long
markupsafe.Markup instances. (:pr:`1393`)
- The debugger can serve resources when Werkzeug is installed as a zip file.
- The debugger and server log support Python 3’s chained exceptions. (:pr:`1396`)
- The interactive debugger highlights frames that come from user code to make them easy to pick out in a long stack trace. Note that if an env was created with virtualenv instead of venv, the debugger may incorrectly classify some frames. (:pr:`1421`)
- Clicking the error message at the top of the interactive debugger will jump down to the bottom of the traceback. (:pr:`1422`)
- When generating a PIN, the debugger will ignore a
KeyError raised when the current UID doesn’t have an associated username, which can happen in Docker. (:issue:`1471`)
BadRequestKeyError adds the
KeyError message to the description, making it clearer what caused the 400 error. Frameworks like Flask can omit this information in production by setting
e.args = (). (:pr:`1395`)
- If a nested
ImportError occurs from
import_string() the traceback mentions the nested import. Removes an untested code path for handling “modules not yet set up by the parent.” (:pr:`735`)
- Triggering a reload while using a tool such as PDB no longer hides input. (:pr:`1318`)
- The reloader will not prepend the Python executable to the command line if the Python file is marked executable. This allows the reloader to work on NixOS. (:pr:`1242`)
- Fix an issue where
sys.path would change between reloads when running with
python -m app. The reloader can detect that a module was run with “-m” and reconstructs that instead of the file path in
sys.argv when reloading. (:pr:`1416`)
- The dev server can bind to a Unix socket by passing a hostname like
unix://app.socket. (:pr:`209`, :pr:`1019`)
- Server uses
IPPROTO_TCP constant instead of
SOL_TCP for Jython compatibility. (:pr:`1375`)
- When using an adhoc SSL cert with
run_simple(), the cert is shown as self-signed rather than signed by an invalid authority. (:pr:`1430`)
- The development server logs the unquoted IRI rather than the raw request line, to make it easier to work with Unicode in request paths during development. (:issue:`1115`)
- The development server recognizes
ConnectionError on Python 3 to silence client disconnects, and does not silence other
OSErrors that may have been raised inside the application. (:pr:`1418`)
- The environ keys
RAW_URI contain the raw path before it was percent-decoded. This is non-standard, but many WSGI servers add them. Middleware could replace
PATH_INFO with this to route based on the raw value. (:pr:`1419`)
EnvironBuilder doesn’t set
CONTENT_LENGTH in the environ if they aren’t set. Previously these used default values if they weren’t set. Now it’s possible to distinguish between empty and unset values. (:pr:`1308`)
- The test client raises a
ValueError if a query string argument would overwrite a query string in the path. (:pr:`1338`)
test.Client take a
json argument instead of manually passing
content_type. This is serialized using the
test.EnvironBuilder.json_dumps() method. (:pr:`1404`)
test.Client redirect handling is rewritten. (:pr:`1402`)
- The redirect environ is copied from the initial request environ.
- Script root and path are correctly distinguished when redirecting to a path under the root.
- The HEAD method is not changed to GET.
- 307 and 308 codes preserve the method and body. All others ignore the body and related headers.
- Headers are passed to the new request for all codes, following what browsers do.
test.EnvironBuilder sets the content type and length headers in addition to the WSGI keys when detecting them from the data.
- Intermediate response bodies are iterated over even when
buffered=False to ensure iterator middleware can run cleanup code safely. Only the last response is not buffered. (:pr:`988`)
wsgi.get_input_stream() no longer share a global
_empty_stream instance. This improves test isolation by preventing cases where closing the stream in one request would affect other usages. (:pr:`1340`)
- The default
SecureCookie.serialization_method will change from
json in 1.0. To upgrade existing tokens, override
unquote() to try
json fails. (:pr:`1413`)
CGIRootFix no longer modifies
PATH_INFO for very old versions of Lighttpd.
LighttpdCGIRootFix was renamed to
CGIRootFix in 0.9. Both are deprecated and will be removed in version 1.0. (:pr:`1141`)
werkzeug.wrappers.json.JSONMixin has been replaced with Flask’s implementation. Check the docs for the full API. (:pr:`1445`)

wsgi.get_host() no longer looks at
ProxyFix to handle that. (:issue:`609`, :pr:`1303`)
ProxyFix is refactored to support more headers, multiple values, and more secure configuration.

- Removed werkzeug.templates and werkzeug.contrib.kickstart.
- Changed host lookup logic for forwarded hosts to allow lists of hosts in which case only the first one is picked up.
- Added wsgi.get_query_string, wsgi.get_path_info and wsgi.get_script_name and made the wsgi.pop_path_info and wsgi.peek_path_info functions perform unicode decoding. This was necessary to avoid having to expose the WSGI encoding dance on Python 3.
- Added content_encoding and content_md5 to the request object’s common request descriptor mixin.

- Removed data structure specific KeyErrors for a general purpose
- The routing system now also accepts strings instead of dictionaries for the query_args parameter since we’re only passing them through for redirects.
- Werkzeug now automatically sets the content length immediately when the
data attribute is set for efficiency and simplicity reasons.
- The routing system will now normalize server names to lowercase.
- The routing system will no longer raise ValueErrors in case the configuration for the server name was incorrect. This should make deployment much easier because you can ignore that factor now.
- Fixed a bug with parsing HTTP digest headers. It rejected headers with missing nc and nonce params.
- Proxy fix now also updates wsgi.url_scheme based on X-Forwarded-Proto.
- Added support for key prefixes to the redis cache.
- Added the ability to suppress some auto corrections in the wrappers that are now controlled via autocorrect_location_header and automatically_set_content_length on the response objects.
- Werkzeug now uses a new method to check that the length of incoming data is complete and will raise IO errors by itself if the server fails to do so.
make_line_iter() now requires a limit that is not higher than the length the stream can provide.
- Refactored form parsing into a form parser class that makes it possible to hook into individual parts of the parsing process for debugging and extending.
- For conditional responses the content length is no longer set when it is already there and added if missing.
- Immutable datastructures are hashable now.
- Headers datastructure no longer allows newlines in values to avoid header injection attacks.
- Made it possible through subclassing to select a different remote addr in the proxy fix.
- Added stream based URL decoding. This reduces memory usage on large transmitted form data that is URL decoded since Werkzeug will no longer load all the unparsed data into memory.
- Memcache client now no longer uses the buggy cmemcache module and supports pylibmc. GAE is not tried automatically and the dedicated class is no longer necessary.
- Redis cache now properly serializes data.
- Removed support for Python 2.4
(bugfix release, released on September 30th 2011)
- Fixed a CSRF problem with the debugger.

- Fixed securecookie for pypy.
- Fixed ValueErrors being raised on calls to best_match on MIMEAccept objects when invalid user data was supplied.
- Deprecated werkzeug.contrib.kickstart and werkzeug.contrib.testtools
- URL routing now can be passed the URL arguments to keep them for redirects. In the future matching on URL arguments might also be possible.
- Header encoding changed from utf-8 to latin1 to support a port to Python 3. Bytestrings passed to the object stay untouched which makes it possible to have utf-8 cookies. This is a part where the Python 3 version will later change in that it will always operate on latin1 values.
- Fixed a bug in the form parser that caused the last character to be dropped off if certain values in multipart data are used.
- Multipart parser now looks at the part-individual content type header to override the global charset.

werkzeug.contrib.fixers.ProxyFix for a drop-in replacement.
- Added cookie forging support to the test client.
- Added support for host based matching in the routing system.
- Switched from the default ‘ignore’ to the better ‘replace’ unicode error handling mode.
- The builtin server now adds a function named ‘werkzeug.server.shutdown’ into the WSGI env to initiate a shutdown. This currently only works in Python 2.6 and later.
- Headers are now assumed to be latin1 for better compatibility with Python 3 once we have support.
- Added accept_json property analogous to accept_html on the

(bugfix release, released on April 23th 2010)
- renamed the attribute implicit_seqence_conversion attribute of the request object to implicit_sequence_conversion.
(bugfix release, released on April 13th 2010)
- heavily improved local objects. Should pick up standalone greenlet builds now and support proxies to free callables as well. There is also a stacked local now that makes it possible to invoke the same application from within itself by pushing current request/response on top of the stack.
- routing build method will also build non-default method rules properly if no method is provided.
- added proper IPv6 support for the builtin server.
- windows specific filesystem session store fixes. (should now be more stable under high concurrency)

- fixed a bug with empty arguments in the werkzeug.script system.
- fixed a bug where log lines will be duplicated if an application uses
- added secure password hashing and checking functions.
- HEAD is now implicitly added as method in the routing system if GET is present. Not doing that was considered a bug because often code assumed that this is the case and in web servers that do not normalize HEAD to GET this could break HEAD requests.
- the script support can start SSL servers now.
Released on Feb 19th 2010, codename Hammer.
- removed pending deprecations
- sys.path is now printed from the testapp.
- fixed an RFC 2068 incompatibility with cookie value quoting.

routing.Map.bind_to_environ() raises a more correct error message now if the map was bound to an invalid WSGI environment.
- added support for SSL to the builtin development server.
- Response objects are no longer modified in place when they are evaluated as WSGI applications. For backwards compatibility the fix_headers function is still called in case it was overridden. You should however change your application to use get_wsgi_headers if you need header modifications before responses are sent as the backwards compatibility support will go away in future versions.
append_slash_redirect() no longer requires the QUERY_STRING to be in the WSGI environment.
- request and response objects have a default __repr__ now.
- builtin data structures can be pickled now.
- the form data parser will now look at the filename instead the content type to figure out if it should treat the upload as regular form data or file upload. This fixes a bug with Google Chrome.
- improved performance of make_line_iter and the multipart parser for binary uploads.
- fixed a path quoting bug in EnvironBuilder that caused PATH_INFO and SCRIPT_NAME to end up in the environ unquoted.
werkzeug.BaseResponse.freeze() now sets the content length.
- for unknown HTTP methods the request stream is now always limited instead of being empty. This makes it easier to implement DAV and other protocols on top of Werkzeug.

- development server doesn’t break on double slashes after the host name.
- better __repr__ and __str__ of
- test client works correctly with multiple cookies now.
werkzeug.routing.Map now has a class attribute with the default converter mapping. This helps subclasses to override the converters without passing them to the constructor.

- werkzeug no longer utilizes the Python time module for parsing which means that dates in a broader range can be parsed.
- the wrappers have no class attributes that make it possible to swap out the dict and list types it uses.
- werkzeug debugger should work on the appengine dev server now.

Client now supports cookies.
- added the
fixers module with various fixes for webserver bugs and hosting setup side-effects.
- moved LimitedStream from the contrib package into the regular werkzeug one and changed the default behavior to raise exceptions rather than stopping without warning. The old class will stick in the module until 0.6.
- implemented experimental multipart parser that replaces the old CGI hack.
url_decode() now accept a separator argument to switch between & and ; as pair separator. The magic switch is no longer in place.
- all form data parsing functions as well as the
BaseRequest object have parameters (or attributes) to limit the number of incoming bytes (either totally or per field).
- request objects are now enforced to be read only for all collections.
- added many new collection classes, refactored collections in general.
- test support was refactored, semi-undocumented werkzeug.test.File was replaced by
EnvironBuilder was added and unifies the previous distinct
BaseRequest.from_values(). They all work the same now which is less confusing.
- officially documented imports from the internal modules as undefined behavior. These modules were never exposed as public interfaces.
- removed FileStorage.__len__ which previously made the object falsy for browsers not sending the content length which all browsers do.
SharedDataMiddleware uses wrap_file now and has a configurable cache timeout.
- added passthrough_errors to run_simple.
- added secure_filename
MultiDict copies now instead of revealing internal lists to the caller for getlist and iteration functions that return lists.
follow_redirect to the
- added support for extra_files in
(Bugfix release, released on January 11th 2009)
- werkzeug.contrib.cache.Memcached accepts now objects that implement the memcache.Client interface as alternative to a list of strings with server addresses. There is also now a GAEMemcachedCache that connects to the Google appengine cache.
- explicitly convert secret keys to bytestrings now because Python 2.6 no longer does that.
- url_encode and all interfaces that call it, support ordering of options now which however is disabled by default.
