Subject:MySQL Connector/Python 8.0.16 has been released
View as plain text  
Dear MySQL users,

MySQL Connector/Python 8.0.16 is the latest GA release version of the
MySQL Connector Python 8.0 series. The X DevAPI enables application
developers to write code that combines the strengths of the relational
and document models using a modern, NoSQL-like syntax that does not
assume previous experience writing traditional SQL.

To learn more about how to write applications using the X DevAPI, see
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/x-devapi-userguide/en/. For more information
about how the X DevAPI is implemented in MySQL Connector/Python, and its
usage, see http://dev.mysql.com/doc/dev/connector-python.

Please note that the X DevAPI requires at least MySQL Server version 8.0
or higher with the X Plugin enabled. For general documentation about how
to get started using MySQL as a document store, see
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/8.0/en/document-store.html.

To download MySQL Connector/Python 8.0.16, see the "General Available
(GA) releases" tab at http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/connector/python/

Enjoy!

Changes in MySQL Connector/Python 8.0.16 (2019-04-25, General
Availability)


      * Functionality Added or Changed

      * Bugs Fixed

Functionality Added or Changed


      * Two informative text files were added: INFO_BIN contains
        information about the build environment used to
produce
        the distribution, and INFO_SRC provides information
about
        the product version and the source repository from
which
        the distribution was produced. (Bug #29454706)

      * Django 1.11 is now the minimum supported Django version.

      * For X DevAPI applications, Connector/Python now supports
        the ability to send connection attributes (key-value
        pairs that application programs can pass to the
server at
        connect time). Connector/Python defines a default
set of
        attributes, which can be disabled or enabled. In
        addition, applications can specify attributes to be
        passed in addition to the default attributes. The
default
        behavior is to send the default attribute set.
        For X DevAPI applications, specify connection
attributes
        as a connection-attributes parameter in a connection
        string, or setting connection-attributes as a
dictionary
        inside the connection settings parameter under the
        connection-attributes key. Both the
mysqlx.get_session()
        and mysqlx.get_client() methods can receive this
        information.
        The connection-attributes parameter value must be
empty
        (the same as specifying true), a Boolean value (true
or
        false to enable or disable the default attribute
set), or
        a list or zero or more key=value specifiers
separated by
        commas (to be sent in addition to the default
attribute
        set). Within a list, a missing key value evaluates
as an
        empty string. An example connection string:
mysqlx://user:password@host:33060/schema?connection-attributes=[foo=bar,baz=qux,quux]

        Application-defined attribute names cannot begin
with _
        because such names are reserved for internal
attributes.
        If connection attributes are not specified in a
valid
        way, an error occurs and the connection attempt
fails.
        For general information about connection attributes,
see
        Performance Schema Connection Attribute Tables
(http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/8.0/en/performance-schema-connection-attribute-tables.html).

      * Connector/Python now has improved support for resetting
        sessions in connection pools. Returning a session to
the
        pool drops session-related objects such as temporary
        tables, session variables, and transactions, but the
        connection remains open and authenticated so that
        reauthentication is not required when the session is
        reused.

      * Protobuf was updated to Protobuf 3.6.1.

      * For X DevAPI, performance for statements that are
        executed repeatedly (two or more times) is improved
by
        using server-side prepared statements for the second
and
        subsequent executions. This happens internally;
        applications need take no action and API behavior
should
        be the same as previously. For statements that
change,
        repreparation occurs as needed. Providing different
data
        values or different offset() or limit() values does
not
        count as a change. Instead, the new values are
passed to
        a new invocation of the previously prepared
statement.

Bugs Fixed


      * Added a "username" alias for the "user" connection
        argument. Thanks to Matthew Woods for the patch.
(Bug
        #29324966, Bug #94248)

      * Solaris 11 package files had the expected owner/group set
        as pb2user/common instead of root/bin. (Bug
#29278489)

      * CRUD operations would not allow referencing a renamed
        column (AS SomeLabel) from the fetched result. (Bug
        #29001628)

      * Fixed a memory corruption issue that caused an unexpected
        halt when fetching fields. (Bug #28479054)

      * Querying an empty LONG BLOB raised an IndexError
        exception. (Bug #27897881, Bug #90519)

Enjoy and thanks for the support!
