django-tagging 0.2

Jonathan Buchanan just released version 0.2 of the django-tagging app which comes with quite some significant changes in how tags are detected. It’s now also possible to have multi-word tags and as such tags no longer have to be separated by spaces but instead can now also be separated by commas.

Besides these and other new features as well as some bugfixes this update also comes with 2 backwards-incompatible changes:

  1. The database tables are now named tagging_tag instead of tag and tagging_taggeditem instead of tagged_item.
  2. The tagging.utils.get_tag_name_list function was removed. From what I can tell, tagging.utils.parse_tag_input is basically its replacement.
