appdirs Changelog
=================

appdirs 1.4.4
-------------
- [PR #92] Don't import appdirs from setup.py

Project officially classified as Stable which is important
for inclusion in other distros such as ActivePython.

First of several incremental releases to catch up on maintenance.

appdirs 1.4.3
-------------
- [PR #76] Python 3.6 invalid escape sequence deprecation fixes
- Fix for Python 3.6 support

appdirs 1.4.2
-------------
- [PR #84] Allow installing without setuptools
- [PR #86] Fix string delimiters in setup.py description
- Add Python 3.6 support

appdirs 1.4.1
-------------
- [issue #38] Fix _winreg import on Windows Py3
- [issue #55] Make appname optional

appdirs 1.4.0
-------------
- [PR #42] AppAuthor is now optional on Windows
- [issue 41] Support Jython on Windows, Mac, and Unix-like platforms. Windows
  support requires `JNA <https://github.com/twall/jna>`_.
- [PR #44] Fix incorrect behaviour of the site_config_dir method

appdirs 1.3.0
-------------
- [Unix, issue 16] Conform to XDG standard, instead of breaking it for
  everybody
- [Unix] Removes gratuitous case mangling of the case, since \*nix-es are
  usually case sensitive, so mangling is not wise
- [Unix] Fixes the utterly wrong behaviour in ``site_data_dir``, return result
  based on XDG_DATA_DIRS and make room for respecting the standard which
  specifies XDG_DATA_DIRS is a multiple-value variable
- [Issue 6] Add ``*_config_dir`` which are distinct on nix-es, according to
  XDG specs; on Windows and Mac return the corresponding ``*_data_dir``

appdirs 1.2.0
-------------

- [Unix] Put ``user_log_dir`` under the *cache* dir on Unix. Seems to be more
  typical.
- [issue 9] Make ``unicode`` work on py3k.

appdirs 1.1.0
-------------

- [issue 4] Add ``AppDirs.user_log_dir``.
- [Unix, issue 2, issue 7] appdirs now conforms to `XDG base directory spec
  <http://standards.freedesktop.org/basedir-spec/basedir-spec-latest.html>`_.
- [Mac, issue 5] Fix ``site_data_dir()`` on Mac.
- [Mac] Drop use of 'Carbon' module in favour of hardcoded paths; supports
  Python3 now.
- [Windows] Append "Cache" to ``user_cache_dir`` on Windows by default. Use
  ``opinion=False`` option to disable this.
- Add ``appdirs.AppDirs`` convenience class. Usage:

        >>> dirs = AppDirs("SuperApp", "Acme", version="1.0")
        >>> dirs.user_data_dir
        '/Users/trentm/Library/Application Support/SuperApp/1.0'

- [Windows] Cherry-pick Komodo's change to downgrade paths to the Windows short
  paths if there are high bit chars.
- [Linux] Change default ``user_cache_dir()`` on Linux to be singular, e.g.
  "~/.superapp/cache".
- [Windows] Add ``roaming`` option to ``user_data_dir()`` (for use on Windows only)
  and change the default ``user_data_dir`` behaviour to use a *non*-roaming
  profile dir (``CSIDL_LOCAL_APPDATA`` instead of ``CSIDL_APPDATA``). Why? Because
  a large roaming profile can cause login speed issues. The "only syncs on
  logout" behaviour can cause surprises in appdata info.


appdirs 1.0.1 (never released)
------------------------------

Started this changelog 27 July 2010. Before that this module originated in the
`Komodo <http://www.activestate.com/komodo>`_ product as ``applib.py`` and then
as `applib/location.py
<http://github.com/ActiveState/applib/blob/master/applib/location.py>`_ (used by
`PyPM <http://code.activestate.com/pypm/>`_ in `ActivePython
<http://www.activestate.com/activepython>`_). This is basically a fork of
applib.py 1.0.1 and applib/location.py 1.0.1.
