* Fix highlighting on history panel so odd rows are highlighted when
* Formalize support for Python 3.11.
* Added Profiling panel setting ``PROFILER_THRESHOLD_RATIO`` to give users
better control over how many function calls are included. A higher value
will include more data, but increase render time.
* Update Profiling panel to include try to always include user code. This
code is more important to developers than dependency code.
* Highlight the project function calls in the profiling panel.
* Added Profiling panel setting ``PROFILER_CAPTURE_PROJECT_CODE`` to allow
users to disable the inclusion of all project code. This will be useful
to project setups that have dependencies installed under
* The toolbar's font stack now prefers system UI fonts. Tweaked paddings,
margins and alignments a bit in the CSS code.
* Only sort the session dictionary when the keys are all strings. Fixes a
bug that causes the toolbar to crash when non-strings are used as keys.

* Removed third party panels which have been archived on GitHub.
* Added Django 4.1b1 to the CI matrix.
* Stopped crashing when ``request.GET`` and ``request.POST`` are neither
dictionaries nor ``QueryDict`` instances. Using anything but ``QueryDict``
instances isn't a valid use of Django but, again, django-debug-toolbar
* Fixed the cache panel to work correctly in the presence of concurrency by
avoiding the use of signals.
* Reworked the cache panel instrumentation mechanism to monkey patch methods on
the cache instances directly instead of replacing cache instances with

done unconditionally at startup time.
* Added pyflame (for flame graphs) to the list of third-party panels.
* Fixed the cache panel to correctly count cache misses from the get_many()
* Removed some obsolete compatibility code from the stack trace recording code.
* Added a new mechanism for capturing stack traces which includes per-request
caching to reduce expensive file system operations. Updated the cache and
SQL panels to record stack traces using this new mechanism.
* Changed the ``docs`` tox environment to allow passing positional arguments.
This allows e.g. building a HTML version of the docs using ``tox -e docs
* Stayed on top of pre-commit hook updates.
* Replaced ``OrderedDict`` by ``dict`` where possible.
* The ``debug_toolbar.utils.get_stack()`` and
``debug_toolbar.utils.tidy_stacktrace()`` functions are deprecated in favor
of the new ``debug_toolbar.utils.get_stack_trace()`` function. They will
removed in the next major version of the Debug Toolbar.

* New records in history panel will flash green.
* Automatically update History panel on AJAX requests from client.
* Revert PR 1426 - Fixes issue with SQL parameters having leading and
trailing characters stripped away.
* Changed cache monkey-patching for Django 3.2+ to iterate over existing
caches and patch them individually rather than attempting to patch
``django.core.caches`` as a whole. The ``middleware.cache`` is still
being patched as a whole in order to attempt to catch any cache
usages before ``enable_instrumentation`` is called.
* Add check ``W006`` to warn that the toolbar is incompatible with
``TEMPLATES`` settings configurations with ``APP_DIRS`` set to ``False``.
* Create ``urls`` module and update documentation to no longer require
importing the toolbar package.
* Ensured that the handle stays within bounds when resizing the window.
* Disabled ``HistoryPanel`` when ``RENDER_PANELS`` is ``True``
or if ``RENDER_PANELS`` is ``None`` and the WSGI container is
running with multiple processes.

rendered during the request and not loaded asynchronously.
* HistoryPanel now shows status codes of responses.
* Support ``request.urlconf`` override when checking for toolbar requests.

and analyze forms.
* Changed ``djdt.cookie.set()`` to set ``sameSite=Lax`` by default if
callers do not provide a value.
* Added ``PRETTIFY_SQL`` configuration option to support controlling
SQL token grouping. By default it's set to True. When set to False,
a performance improvement can be seen by the SQL panel.
``djdt.panel.[PanelId]`` where PanelId is the ``panel_id`` property
of the panel's Python class. Listening for this event corrects the bug
in the Timer Panel in which it didn't insert the browser timings
after switching requests in the History Panel.
* Fixed issue with the toolbar expecting URL paths to start with
``/__debug__/`` while the documentation indicates it's not required.
* Moved CI to GitHub Actions: https://github.com/jazzband/django-debug-toolbar/actions
* Stopped crashing when ``request.GET`` and ``request.POST`` are
dictionaries instead of ``QueryDict`` instances. This isn't a valid
use of Django but django-debug-toolbar shouldn't crash anyway.
* Fixed a crash in the history panel when sending a JSON POST request
with invalid JSON.
* Added missing signals to the signals panel by default.
* Verified support for Python 3.9.

change state on the server.
* Fixed a bug where unsuccessful requests (e.g. network errors) were
* Started spellchecking the documentation.
* Removed calls to the deprecated ``request.is_ajax()`` method. These calls
were unnecessary now that most endpoints return JSON anyway.
* Removed support for Python 3.5.
* Fixed a crash in the history panel when sending an empty JSON POST
* Made ``make example`` also set up the database and a superuser
* Added a Makefile target for regenerating the django-debug-toolbar

* Changed command line examples to prefer ``python -m pip`` to ``pip``.
* Added an ``.editorconfig`` file specifying indentation rules etc.
* Updated the Italian translation.
* Added support for Django 3.1a1. ``fetch()`` and ``jQuery.ajax`` requests are
now detected by the absence of a ``Accept: text/html`` header instead of the
jQuery-specific ``X-Requested-With`` header on Django 3.1 or better.
* Pruned unused CSS and removed hacks for ancient browsers.
* Added the new :attr:`Panel.scripts <debug_toolbar.panels.Panel.scripts>`
loaded in the browser when displaying the panel. Right now, this is used by a
single panel, the Timer panel. Third party panels can use this property to
add scripts rather then embedding them in the content HTML.
* Switched from JSHint to ESLint. Added an ESLint job to the Travis CI matrix.
* Updated the code to avoid a few deprecation warnings and resource warnings.
* Added support for :meth:`cache.touch() <django.core.caches.cache.touch>` when

* Fixed the close button CSS by explicitly specifying the
* Simplified the ``isort`` configuration by taking advantage of isort's
* Added :class:`~debug_toolbar.panels.history.HistoryPanel` including support
for AJAX requests.
**Backwards incompatible changes**
* Loading panel content no longer executes the scripts elements embedded in the
:attr:`Panel.scripts <debug_toolbar.panels.Panel.scripts>` property.
* Removed support for end of life Django 1.11. The minimum supported Django is
using Django ``runserver`` is not impacted. However, if your application
server and static files server are at different origins, you may see CORS
errors in your browser's development console. See the "Cross-Origin Request
Blocked" section of the :doc:`installation docs <installation>` for details
on how to resolve this issue.
* Removed support for end of life Django 2.0 and 2.1.
* Added support for Python 3.8.
* Add locals() option for SQL panel.
* Added support for Django 3.0.
* Changed the Travis CI matrix to run style checks first.
* Exposed the ``djdt.init`` function too.
* Small improvements to the code to take advantage of newer Django APIs
and avoid warnings because of deprecated code.
* Verified compatibility with the upcoming Django 3.0 (at the time of
* Updated :class:`~debug_toolbar.panels.staticfiles.StaticFilesPanel` to be
compatible with Django 3.0.
* The :class:`~debug_toolbar.panels.profiling.ProfilingPanel` is now enabled
but inactive by default.
* Fixed toggling of table rows in the profiling panel UI.
* The :class:`~debug_toolbar.panels.profiling.ProfilingPanel` no longer skips
remaining panels or middlewares.
* Improved the installation documentation.
* Fixed a possible crash in the template panel.
* Added support for psycopg2 ``Composed`` objects.
* Changed the Jinja2 tests to use Django's own Jinja2 template backend.
* Added instrumentation to queries using server side cursors.
* Too many small improvements and cleanups to list them all.
**Backwards incompatible changes**
* Removed support for Python 2.
* Removed support for Django's deprecated ``MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES`` setting.
* Restructured :class:`debug_toolbar.panels.Panel` to execute more like the
new-style Django MIDDLEWARE. The ``Panel.__init__()`` method is now passed
``get_response`` as the first positional argument. The
:meth:`debug_toolbar.panels.Panel.process_request` method must now always
return a response. Usually this is the response returned by
``get_response()`` but the panel may also return a different response as is
the case in the :class:`~debug_toolbar.panels.redirects.RedirectsPanel`.
Third party panels must adjust to this new architecture.
``Panel.process_response()`` and ``Panel.process_view()`` have been removed
as a result of this change.
The deprecated API, ``debug_toolbar.panels.DebugPanel``, has been removed.
Third party panels should use :class:`debug_toolbar.panels.Panel` instead.
The following deprecated settings have been removed:
* Use ``defer`` on all ``<script>`` tags to avoid blocking HTML parsing,
* Stop inlining images in CSS to avoid Content Security Policy errors
* Reformatted the code using `black <https://github.com/ambv/black>`__.
* Added the Django mail panel to the list of third-party panels.
* Convert system check errors to warnings to accommodate exotic
* Fixed a crash when explaining raw querysets.
* Fixed an obscure Unicode error with binary data fields.
* Added MariaDB and Python 3.7 builds to the CI.

unhashable query parameters.
* Added support for structured types when recording SQL.
* Made Travis CI also run one test no PostgreSQL.
* Added fallbacks for inline images in CSS.
* Improved cross-browser compatibility around ``URLSearchParams`` usage.
* Fixed a few typos and redundancies in the documentation, removed
mentions of django-debug-toolbar's jQuery which aren't accurate
* Removed support for Django < 1.11.
* Added support and testing for Django 2.1 and Python 3.7. No actual code
changes were required.
* Removed the jQuery dependency. This means that django-debug-toolbar
now requires modern browsers with support for ``fetch``, ``classList``
etc. The ``JQUERY_URL`` setting is also removed because it isn't
necessary anymore. If you depend on jQuery, integrate it yourself.
* Added support for the server timing header.
* Added a differentiation between similar and duplicate queries. Similar
queries are what duplicate queries used to be (same SQL, different
* Stopped hiding frames from Django's contrib apps in stacktraces by
* Lots of small cleanups and bug fixes.
* Fix erroneous ``ContentNotRenderedError`` raised by the redirects panel.
This version is compatible with Django 2.0 and requires Django 1.8 or
* The profiling panel now escapes reported data resulting in valid HTML.
* Many minor cleanups and bug fixes.
This version is compatible with Django 1.11 and requires Django 1.8 or
**Backwards incompatible changes**
* ``debug_toolbar.middleware.show_toolbar`` (the default value of setting
``SHOW_TOOLBAR_CALLBACK``) no longer returns ``False`` for AJAX requests.
This is to allow reusing the ``SHOW_TOOLBAR_CALLBACK`` function to verify
access to panel views requested via AJAX. Projects defining a custom
``SHOW_TOOLBAR_CALLBACK`` should remove checks for AJAX requests in order to
continue to allow access to these panels.
* New decorator ``debug_toolbar.decorators.require_show_toolbar`` prevents
unauthorized access to decorated views by checking ``SHOW_TOOLBAR_CALLBACK``
every request. Unauthorized access results in a 404.
* The ``SKIP_TEMPLATE_PREFIXES`` setting allows skipping templates in
the templates panel. Template-based form widgets' templates are
skipped by default to avoid panel sizes going into hundreds of
megabytes of HTML.
* All views are now decorated with
``debug_toolbar.decorators.require_show_toolbar`` preventing unauthorized
* The templates panel now reuses contexts' pretty printed version which
makes the debug toolbar usable again with Django 1.11's template-based
* Long SQL statements are now forcibly wrapped to fit on the screen.
* Recursive template extension is now understood.
* Deprecation warnings were fixed.
* The SQL panel uses HMAC instead of simple hashes to verify that SQL
statements have not been changed. Also, the handling of bytes and text
for hashing has been hardened. Also, a bug with Python's division
handling has been fixed for improved Python 3 support.
* An error with django-jinja has been fixed.
* A few CSS classes have been prefixed with ``djdt-`` to avoid
conflicting class names.
The debug toolbar was adopted by Jazzband.
* Support for automatic setup has been removed as it was frequently
problematic. Installation now requires explicit setup. The
``DEBUG_TOOLBAR_PATCH_SETTINGS`` setting has also been removed as it is now
unused. See the :doc:`installation documentation <installation>` for details.
* The ``DebugToolbarMiddleware`` now also supports Django 1.10's ``MIDDLEWARE``
This version is compatible with Django 1.10 and requires Django 1.8 or later.
Support for Python 3.2 is dropped.
* Restore compatibility with sqlparse ≥ 0.2.0.
* Add compatibility with Bootstrap 4, Pure CSS, MDL, etc.
* Improve compatibility with RequireJS / AMD.
* Improve the UI slightly.
* Fix invalid (X)HTML.
This version is compatible with Django 1.9 and requires Django 1.7 or later.
* New panel method :meth:`debug_toolbar.panels.Panel.generate_stats` allows
panels to only record stats when the toolbar is going to be inserted into
* Response time for requests of projects with numerous media files has
This is the first version compatible with Django 1.8.
* A new panel is available: Template Profiler.
* The ``SHOW_TOOLBAR_CALLBACK`` accepts a callable.
* The toolbar handle cannot leave the visible area anymore when the toolbar is
* The root level logger is preserved.
* The ``RESULTS_CACHE_SIZE`` setting is taken into account.
* CSS classes are prefixed with ``djdt-`` to prevent name conflicts.
* The private copy of jQuery no longer registers as an AMD module on sites
that load RequireJS.
* The ``JQUERY_URL`` setting defines where the toolbar loads jQuery from.
* The toolbar now always loads a private copy of jQuery in order to avoid
using an incompatible version. It no longer attempts to integrate with AMD.
This private copy is available in ``djdt.jQuery``. Third-party panels are
encouraged to use it because it should be as stable as the toolbar itself.
This is the first version compatible with Django 1.7.
* The SQL panel colors queries depending on the stack level.
* The Profiler panel allows configuring the maximum depth.
* Support languages where lowercase and uppercase strings may have different
* Allow using cursor as context managers.
* Make the SQL explain more helpful on SQLite.
* The ``INTERCEPT_REDIRECTS`` setting is superseded by the more generic
This is the first stable version of the Debug Toolbar!
It includes many new features and performance improvements as well a few
backwards-incompatible changes to make the toolbar easier to deploy, use,
extend and maintain in the future.
You're strongly encouraged to review the installation and configuration docs
and redo the setup in your projects.
Third-party panels will need to be updated to work with this version.
