Just did a
pip install --upgrade Django from 1.5.5 to 1.6 to test what changes I'd need to make. Previously, the following worked fine:
python manage.py loaddata initial_data.auth.json
which was a handy way of declaring that some data might be needed on first-usage, without actually having it clobber whatever data is in the DB every time thereafter, as initial_data is wont to do.
As of 1.6, this now results in an error:
CommandError: Problem installing fixture 'initial_data': auth is not a known serialization format.
I can't see mention in the release notes, or the loaddata/dumpdata/fixtures docs suggesting anything has changed in such a way that this is expected behaviour.
