-Advanced diff support
-The TracRevisionLog view can now be used to select two arbitrary
-revisions of a given path in the repository and see the differences
-between them, in the familiar TracChangeset view.
+Trac 0.10.1 is a security and bug-fix release. This release fixes
+a Cross Site Request Forgery (CSRF) vulnerability reported by Daniel 
+Kahn Gillmor. Trac 0.10.1 also fixes a number of bugs found since the
+last release. The complete list of closed tickets can be found here:
-A related change is the possibility to navigate through a sequence of
-restricted changesets. A restricted changeset is the subset of changes
-within a changeset inside a given directory. One can easily start
-navigating such a sequence by following the new Last Change navigation
-link present for the currently browsed path.
-It's now also possible to compare two arbitrary paths at any revision.
-This can be used to check the differences between a tagged version and
-trunk, or to review the set of differences between two branches.
-Other enhancements have been made to the version control subsystem, in
-particular the support of scoped repositories has been improved. You
-should therefore perform a trac-admin resync operation.
-InterWiki and InterTrac support
-An InterWiki link can be used to refer to a Wiki page located on another
-Wiki system, and by extension, to any object located on any other Web
-site, as long as simple URL mapping is possible.
-An InterTrac link can be used for referring to a Trac resource (Wiki
-page, changeset, ticket, ...) on an other Trac environment. This makes it
-easier to work with multiple separate projects, and seamlessly refer to
-resources from one Trac to another.
-Improved modularity
-Trac now supports database and version control backends as third-party
-It is now easier to add support for new database backends. In addition to
-the already existing support for SQLite and PostgreSQL, Trac now features
-experimental support for the MySQL database.
-As for the version control systems, Trac still features best of breed
-Subversion support, but the Subversion bindings and libraries are no
-longer mandatory for using Trac itself. Other version control systems can
-be supported by external plugins.
-Improved notification system
-The encoding for emails sent out by Trac can now be configured. This may
-decrease email size and can avoid useless encoding for western languages
-that make some touchy SMTP servers bounce the notifications.
-Support for local network installations using local email addresses
-(addresses without a domain name) and a configurable default domain name
-has been added, as well as support for both visible and blind carbon
-Support for spam protection
-Trac now provides extension point that allow plugins to intercept content
-submissions, which can be used to filter out spam. One plugin that does
-this is the SpamFilter plugin, which is available as a separate package:
-This plugin implements a number of different strategies for testing
-content, such as regular expression matching, IP blacklisting, and
-Akismet queries.
-WSGI used as web server protocol
-Trac now uses WSGI (the "Python Web Server Gateway Interface")
-internally. While Trac continues to provide builtin support for CGI,
-FastCGI and mod_python, as well as the standalone server "tracd", you can
-now take advantage of the WSGI support to use Trac in other setups, such
-as Twisted, Paste, SCGI, or ISAPI.
-Lots of minor improvements
-To the Wiki syntax
-Numerous improvements have been made in the WikiFormatting syntax:
- * Headings can optionally be given explicit id.
- * MoinMoin ["internal free link"] syntax is now supported.
- * Introduced citation syntax for the Wiki (e-mail style).
- * Added more robust parsing and formatting of Wiki lists and robust
-   coupling of lists and quotes.
- * Improved the way external links are displayed.
- * Lots of new ways to refer to specific repository views (diff:from//
-   to, log:, [x:y], rx:y)
- * htdocs:, useful for referring to local resources in TracStandalone
- * MoinMoin-style syntax for description lists
- * Removed support for direct embedding of images using links: use the
-   [[Image]] macro instead.
-To the Wiki subsystem
- * Quicker access to last change on a page and better navigation in the
-   page history
- * Preview the change comment before saving a change and display the
-   change comment when viewing a specific version of a page. This
-   hopefully will encourage authors to document their changes!
-To the Ticket subsystem
- * Possibility to Reply to ticket description and changes
- * Export individual ticket data in CSV or RSS format
-Developer-visible changes
-unicode everywhere
-Trac used to handle text content by using str objects, in which Unicode
-characters were represented using UTF-8 encoding. This lead to various
-problems with most non-western languages. We now use the dedicated
-unicode datatype to consistently handle text written in any language. See
-also TracDev/UnicodeGuidelines.
-Better way to programmatically generate HTML fragments
-Trac now provides utility code to programmatically generate HTML
-snippets. This can be used in the various places where Trac expects
-plugins to return small fragments of HTML bypassing the template system.
-These utilities can be found in the trac.util.html module.
-Unit test framework for email notifications
-Email notifications can now be validated; unit tests include a private
-SMTP server and helper methods to extract and decode email data.
-Internal API changes
-A detailed view of the API changes since 0.9.x can be found in TracDev/

Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
