Dear MySQL users,
MySQL Connector/Python v1.0.9 is a new version of the 1.0 production
release of the pure Python database driver for MySQL.
MySQL Connector/Python version 1.0 is compatible with MySQL Server
versions 5.5 and greater, but should work with earlier versions
(greater than v4.1). Python v2.6 and greater as well as Python v3.1
and greater are supported. Python v2.4 and v2.5 are known to work,
but are not officially supported.
MySQL Connector/Python v1.0.9 is available for download from
A brief summary of changes in MySQL Connector/Python v1.0 is listed

Changes in MySQL Connector/Python v1.0.9
Functionality Added or Changed
* Previously, when setting up an SSL connection, the developer
had to set the ClientFlag.SSL explicitly in the client_flags
argument of the mysql.connector.connect() function call. Now,
whenever SSL arguments are specified, the client flag is set
automatically. This change makes the SSL behavior of
Connector/Python more consistent with other MySQL connectors.
(Bug #16217667, Bug #68172)
* The DistUtils command was not copying version.py into the
build directory, so that the build/lib directory could not be
used for development without manually copying version.py. (Bug
* Passing string parameters to a stored procedure resulted in
extra quotes being included in the value. This was caused by
the conversion from Python to MySQL data types being applied
two times. We now only convert once, and pass the values
MySQLCursor.callproc() now also raises a ValueError when the
type of an argument is incorrect. (Bug #16217743, Bug #68066)
* Fixed IPv6 for older Microsoft Windows versions. Also improved
the associated code for all operating systems: we now use
socket.getaddrinfo() instead of inet_pton() to check whether
we are connecting using IPv4 or IPv6.
A new connection option force_ipv6 has been introduced. When
set to True, IPv6 will be used when an address resolves to
both IPv4 and IPv6. Otherwise, IPv4 is favored. (Bug
The source distribution includes the manual in various formats under
