Version 2.1.11

Released: March 14, 2017

This is a bug-fix release and all users are encouraged to upgrade. The focus of this micro release was REST API improvement.


  • Added a quick rename serializer to the document type API serializer.
  • Added per document type, workflow list API view. The URL for this endpoint is GET [/api/document_states/document_type/{pk}/workflows/]{.pre}
  • Added Developer Certificate of Origin. Mayan EDMS was adopted a version 1.1 of the Linux Foundation Developer Certificate of Origin. All commits must be signed (git commit -s) in order to be merged.
  • Added the detail URL of a permission in the permission serializer.
  • Added endpoints for the ACL app API.
  • Implemented document workflows transition ACLs. GitLab issue #321.
  • Add document comments API endpoints. GitHub issue #249.
  • Add support for overriding the Celery class. The setting is named MAYAN_CELERY_CLASS and expects a dotted python path to the class to use.
  • Changed the document upload view in source app to not use the HTTP referrer URL blindly, but instead recompose the URL using known view name. Needed when integrating Mayan EDMS into other app via using iframes.
  • Added size field to the document version serializer.
  • Removed the serializer from the deleted document restore API endpoint it doesn't need a serializer being just an action POST endpoint.
  • Added support for adding or editing document types to smart links via the API.
