v1.10.0 (2022-08-30)

  • Refactor the whole pydantic dataclass decorator to really act like its standard lib equivalent. It hence keeps __eq__, __hash__, ... and makes comparison with its non-validated version possible. It also fixes usage of frozen dataclasses in fields and usage of default_factory in nested dataclasses. The support of Config.extra has been added. Finally, config customization directly via a dict is now possible, #2557 by @PrettyWood

v1.9.2 (2022-08-11)

Revert Breaking Change: v1.9.1 introduced a breaking change where model fields were deep copied by default, this release reverts the default behaviour to match v1.9.0 and before, while also allow deep-copy behaviour via copy_on_model_validation = 'deep'. See #4092 for more information.
