Changes in MySQL Connector/Python 2.0.2 (2014-11-03)

Bugs Fixed

   * If the pool_size and pool_name connection arguments were
     specified using the option file (as opposed to being
     passed explicitly to the connect call), the pooled
     connection was successfully created, but an exception was
     raised when closing it. (Bug #19549363)

   * The Django backend raised an exception when converting
     "0000-00-00 00:00:00" to None. (Bug #73940, Bug

   * Using a connection_created signal defined in
     django.db.backends.signals caused a "maximum recursion
     depth reached" runtime error. (Bug #73847, Bug #19584116)

   * The type_code in cursor.description did not compare equal
     to any of the type objects defined in
     mysql.connector.dbapi. (Bug #73798, Bug #19584051)

   * Data corruption occurred when inserting sufficiently
     large data in a table with a TEXT type column using
     prepared statements, due to incorrect encoding of the
     data length while sending the prepared statement packet.
     (Bug #73690, Bug #19522948)

   * When the character set was binary, character set
     conversion could occur. Conversion is no longer done and
     binary data is returned as is. (Bug #71909, Bug
