Django 1.4.19 release notes

January 27, 2015

Django 1.4.19 fixes a regression in the 1.4.18 security release.


  • GZipMiddleware now supports streaming responses. As part of the 1.4.18 security release, the django.views.static.serve() function was altered to stream the files it serves. Unfortunately, the GZipMiddleware consumed the stream prematurely and prevented files from being served properly (#24158).
