Subject:MySQL Connector/Python v1.2.2 GA has been released
View as plain text  
Dear MySQL users,

MySQL Connector/Python v1.2.2 is the new version of
the 1.2 release series of the pure Python database driver
for MySQL. This is the first GA (General Availability) version of
Connector/Python 1.2.

MySQL Connector/Python version 1.2.2 is compatible with MySQL Server
versions 5.5 and greater. Python 2.6 and 2.7, as well as Python 3.1
and greater are supported.

MySQL Connector/Python 1.2.2 is available for download from

The ChangeLog file included in the distribution contains a brief summary
of changes in MySQL Connector/Python 1.2.2. For a more complete list of
changes, see below or online at:

    Bugs Fixed

      * The Fabric connection configuration permitted username but not
        user as a parameter name, which is inconsistent with the
        connection arguments permitted by Connector/Python itself. Now
        either can be used. (Using both raises a ValueError.) (Bug

      * In the MySQLProtocol._auth_response method of the
        mysql.connector.protocol module, the auth_response variable
        was changed without being defined first. (Bug #18463182)

      * Commercial Debian Connector/Python packages included a
        copyright file containing a GPL license. (Bug #18422727)

      * Building an RPM package using python bdist_rpm did
        not work. (Bug #72261, Bug #18550039)

      * The community MSI Connector/Python packages contained empty
        documentation PDF and HTML files. These have been removed and
        replaced with the README_DOCS.txt file which contains a URL to
        the online manual. (Bug #72245, Bug #18527132)

      * For Python 3, when parameters were passed as a dictionary to
        the MySQLCursor methods execute() and executemany(), only
        first occurrence of each element in the query was replaced by
        the parameter value. (Bug #71975, Bug #18389196)

      * when MySQLCursor.execute() was passed values of a data type
        which cannot be converted, the exception raised was not easy
        to understand. Now a nicer error message is displayed when
        unconvertible Python types are given. (Bug #71729, Bug

      * Connector/Python raised all deprecation warnings as errors
        when Django was run in debug mode. Now only database warnings
        are raised as errors in debug mode. (Bug #71806, Bug



The source distribution includes the manual in various formats under
