2.0.10 - 2013-02-06

  • Changed the save() method in UserService to return an Identity so that event callback implementations can receive Identity instances from custom classes.
  • Added an event API that can be used to track events(only login/logout yet). Scala only for now.

2.0.9 - 2013-01-25

  • The login action redirects the user to the app if he is already authenticated now.

2.0.8 - 2013-01-01

  • PasswordHasher and Password validator are abstract classes instead of traits now (simplifies Java integration).

  • Removed serviceInfo from OAuth1Info. That object can be retrieved from SecureSocial.serviceInfoFor method now.
  • Backward incompatible changes to the Java API: deleted AuthenticationMethod, OAuth1Info, OAuth2Info, PasswordInfo, SocialUser and UserId. This was required because after introducing the Identity trait I needed to make sure the user received his own object in the actions instead of a SocialUser instance. Even though there's not a Java equivalent, the Scala classes can be called from Java easily.
  • Added new message to messages file: securesocial.login.errorLoggingIn
  • Improved ProviderController.handleAuth to show an error if an error occurrs while logging the user in (eg: if the implementation throws an exception)

  • Fixed: PasswordValidator was not being used in password reset
  • Fixed: When a token is expired the user is properly redirected to the sign up or reset pages now
  • Added enableTokenJob property to enable/disable the background job
  • Fixed method typo AuthenticationMethod: toScala.
  • Right http codes are returned for ajax calls now
  • New assetsController property to override the assets class in RoutesHelper. Needed when a custom Asset controller is used by the app.
  • Added hasher id to PasswordInfo
  • Added support for registering multiple PasswordHashers to allow upgrading the hashing algorithm.
  • Introduced Identity trait. SocialUser now implements it (this will allow developers to return their own user class from UserService.find methods)
