autoescape has defaulted to on since before Django 1.0; it was a massive change at the time.
The only change in escaping behaviour in 1.9 was around the output of simple tags, see https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/2.0/releases/1.9/#simple-tag-now-wraps-tag-output-in-conditional-escape - this is a very minor change which can be easily fixed within the tags themselves. -- DR. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Django users" group.
