# South 0.7.6

This is a minor new release of South, and the sixth bugfix release for the :ref:0.7 series <0-7-release-notes>.

Major changes are outlined below. A full list of bugs fixed can be found on the South Trac.

None.

## --update

There is now a new --update switch, which you can use with schemamigration to merge updates you've just done into your most recent migration and then reverse and re-apply that migration to the database.

Note that this will only work with migrations that aren't yet committed into a VCS - once that occurs, you should create a new migration rather than running --update on the current one.

## Table defaults

South now keeps all defaults out of the database during table creation, to mirror Django's approach when creating tables. This was already the case when adding columns.

## SQLite fixes

The SQLite backend now correctly handles boolean default values.

## MSSQL fixes

Altering ForeignKey columns now works correctly.

## Firebird fixes

Boolean defaults and autoincrement now works correctly.
