    v138 v139  
    480480== Settings exception types changed ==
    481481
    482 In [6382] we changed the possible exceptions raised when initialising Django's settings in order not to interfere with Python's {{{help()}}} function. If there is a problem such as not being able to find the settings module (via the {{{DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE}}} environment variable, for example), an `ImportError` is now raised (previously it was `EnvironmentError`). If you try to reconfigure settings after having already used them, a `RuntimeError` is raised (rather than the previous `EnvironmentError`). See #5743 for the details of this change.

    484484== Generic views' empty defaults ==
    485485
    486 In [6383] the {{{allow_empty}}} parameter to the {{{archive_index()}}} and {{{object_list()}}} generic views were changed to be True by default. So viewing a list of objects that is empty will not raise a 404 HTTP error. Things like date-based views still raise a 404 when there is nothing to view (by default), since viewing a non-existent date is usually going to be an error. See #685 for details.
