Avro Change Log

Trunk (unreleased changes)


    AVRO-185. Java's specific API no longer depends on reflection.
    This reverses the inheritance of most classes in the specific and
    reflect packages. (cutting)

    AVRO-201. Move Python data file code into its own module.
    (Jeff Hammerbacher via cutting)

    AVRO-80. Java reflect API no longer uses Avro-specific classes
    for string and array. Instead now Java strings and arrays or
    Lists are used. (cutting)

    Avro array. Also inherited fields are included in records, and
    inherited methods in protocols. Finally, Java shorts are
    supported as integers. (cutting)

    format now permits streaming but no longer supports multiple
    schemas per file. Java API for reading is iterator-based.

Avro 1.2.0 (14 October 2009)


    AVRO-115. Remove RPC's session notion to facilliate the use of
    stateless transports like UDP and HTTP. Add a UDP transport.

    AVRO-120. Improved package and namespace handling, including:

     * Removed explicit package-name specification from specific and
       reflect public APIs. Package names are now determined either
       by namespace declarations or by a Java classes, as appropriate.

     * Changed the specific compiler to generate separate java files
       per class, rather than nested classes. This permits generated
       classes to be in packages declared in their schema namespaces.

     * Fix namespace defaulting. The default namespace is declared in
       the outermost schema or protocol. Nested schemas can now
       declare different namespaces than the default.

     * Names may now be specified with a dotted notation, e.g.,
       "", to indicate the name "Baz" in namespace
       "". This permits one to refer to schemas in a namespace
       other than the default.


    AVRO-121. Permit reflect and specific datum readers to read data
    written with a different version of the schema than is current.

    AVRO-129. Add HTTP-based RPC client and server. (cutting)

    (Scott Banachowski via cutting)

    AVRO-119. Add Java GenericData.Array#toString() implementation,
    to facillitate debugging. (cutting)

    AVRO-118. JSON encoder and decoder now permit one to write
    multiple instances without flushing or explicitly resetting the
    codec between each instance. (Thiruvalluvan M. G. via cutting)

    AVRO-133. Update version number in specification document and
    documentation tab automatically from build version. (cutting)

    AVRO-131. Permit specification of JUnit test output format.
    (Giridharan Kesavan via cutting)

    AVRO-134. Update data file format specification to include
    reserved metadata keys "codec" and "sync". The only codec
    currently defined is "null". (Thiruvalluvan M. G. via cutting)

    AVRO-138. Add a "unit-test-java" Ant target that runs tests
    without running checkstyle or javadoc. (Thiruvalluvan M. G. via

    the command line that depend on ivy, ivy does not fail. (phunt
    via cutting)

    parameters and return types are unboxed. (cutting)

    AVRO-137. Suppress warnings in generated java code. (cutting via sharad)

Avro 1.1.0 (8 September 2009)


    AVRO-110. GenericData and ReflectData have been converted to use a
    singleton pattern. Calls to static methods on these classes must
    be replaced with calls on the singleton instance. (cutting)

    AVRO-41. GenericArray's constructor now requires a Schema, so that
    it may implement Comparable consistently with AVRO-108. (cutting)

    AVRO-41. Several GenericDatumWriter methods (instanceOf(),
    isRecord(), etc.) have been moved to GenericData, where they can
    better be shared with comparators. Applications which subclassed
    GenericDatumWriter overriding these methods must now instead
    subclass GenericData and pass their subclass to
    GenericDatumWriter. (cutting)

    getSchema(), since it now implements the new GenericContainer
    interface shared with GenericRecord. (cutting)

    Comparable. The implementation is consistent with the binary
    comparator added in AVRO-108. (cutting)

    AVRO-109. Add Java support for controlling sort order via schema
    annotations. Record fields now support an "order" attribute whose
    possible values are "increasing" (the default), "decreasing", and
    "ignore". (cutting)

    AVRO-111. Document sort ordering in the specification. (cutting)


    AVRO-71. C++: make deserializer more generic. (Scott Banachowski
    via cutting)

    AVRO-60. Fix C JSON parser to correctly handle escapes and
    multi-byte characters. Add tests. (Matt Massie via cutting)

    AVRO-54. Re-upgrade to testng 5.9 and re-enable listeners. (cutting)

    AVRO-82. Add checkstyle to java compilation. (Thiruvalluvan
    M. G. via cutting)

    AVRO-81. Switch back from TestNG to JUnit. (Konstantin Boudnik via

    AVRO-84, AVRO-85. Clarify a few things in the specification
    document. (Thiruvalluvan M. G. and cutting)

    AVRO-89. In fields of Java generated classes, use unboxed numeric
    types. (cutting)

    AVRO-83. In generated Java code, elide unions with null. (cutting)

    order and to ignore extra attributes. (Scott Banachowski via cutting)

    AVRO-95. Fix writing of Java reflect-based unions. Also extend
    DataFileWriter to permit adding branches to a union schema while

    (Ravi Gummadi via cutting)

    AVRO-97. Fix various C++ bugs. (Scott Banachowski via cutting)

    AVRO-100. In spec, remove warning about blocking being draft. (cutting)

    AVRO-107. Fix Protocol#equals() and Protocol#hashCode() to
    consider the protocol's types, and also fix Schema#equals() to not
    throw ClassCastException when a fixed schema is compared to
    non-fixed. (cutting)

    AVRO-112. Turn off C++ debug output. (Scott Banachowski via cutting)

    AVRO-114. Fix "cdoc" Ant target to correctly run doxygen.
    (Matt Massie via cutting)
