Subject:MySQL Connector/Python 1.1.2-alpha has been released
View as plain text  
Dear MySQL users,

MySQL Connector/Python 1.1.2 is the next alpha version of
the 1.1 release series of the pure Python database driver
for MySQL. It is intended to introduce users to the new features.

This release is not feature complete but it should be stable
enough for users to understand the new features and how we
expect them to work.

As is the case with all non-GA releases, it should not be used
in any production environment.

MySQL Connector/Python version 1.1.2-alpha is compatible with MySQL Server
versions 5.5 and greater, but should work with earlier versions
(greater than 4.1). Python 2.6 and 2.7, as well as Python 3.1
and greater are supported.

MySQL Connector/Python 1.1.2-alpha is available for download from

The ChangeLog file included in the distribution contains a brief summary
of changes in MySQL Connector/Python 1.1.2. For a more complete list of
changes, see below or online at:

Changes in MySQL Connector/Python 1.1.2 (2013-10-23, Alpha)

Functionality Added or Changed

      * The error message raised when a connection pool has no more
        connections available now indicates "pool exhausted" rather
        than "queue is empty". (Bug #17406263)

      * Previously, instantiating a cursor for prepared statements was
        done using
        MySQLConnection.cursor(cursor_class=MySQLCursorPrepared). Now
        this can be done using MySQLConnection.cursor(prepared=True).
        (Bug #17215197)

      * Previously, setting a custom converter class was possible
        after instantiating a new connection object. The connect()
        method now accepts a converter_class connection argument that
        takes a class and sets it when configuring the connection. An
        AttributeError is raised if the the custom converter class is
        not a subclass of conversion.MySQLConverterBase. (Bug

      * The connect() method now accepts a boolean
        compress={False|True} argument indicating whether to use the
        compressed client/server protocol (default False). This
        provides an easier alternative to setting the
        ClientFlag.COMPRESS flag. (Bug #13369592)

    Bugs Fixed

      * In some cases, when a Connector/Python application exited, a
        RuntimeError was raised when using Python 3. (Bug #17424009)

      * The DatabaseOperations.last_executed_query() method in the
        Django base module was unnecessarily decoding the string,
        resulting in an error when using Python 3. (Bug #70324, Bug



The source distribution includes the manual in various formats under
