dev (master branch)

  • Exceptions are now pickleable, with tests. (Issue #101)
  • Fixed default headers not getting passed in some cases. (Issue #99)

1.5 (2012-08-02)

  • Added urllib3.add_stderr_logger() for quickly enabling STDERR debug logging in urllib3.
  • Native full URL parsing (including auth, path, query, fragment) available in urllib3.util.parse_url(url).
  • Built-in redirect will switch method to 'GET' if status code is 303. (Issue #11)
  • urllib3.PoolManager strips the scheme and host before sending the request uri. (Issue #8)
  • New urllib3.exceptions.DecodeError exception for when automatic decoding, based on the Content-Type header, fails.
  • Fixed bug with pool depletion and leaking connections (Issue #76). Added explicit connection closing on pool eviction. Added urllib3.PoolManager.clear().
  • 99% -> 100% unit test coverage.

1.4 (2012-06-16)

  • Minor AppEngine-related fixes.
  • Switched from mimetools.choose_boundary to uuid.uuid4().
  • Improved url parsing. (Issue #73)
  • IPv6 url support. (Issue #72)

1.3 (2012-03-25)

  • Removed pre-1.0 deprecated API.
  • Refactored helpers into a urllib3.util submodule.
  • Fixed multipart encoding to support list-of-tuples for keys with multiple values. (Issue #48)
  • Fixed multiple Set-Cookie headers in response not getting merged properly in Python 3. (Issue #53)
  • AppEngine support with Py27. (Issue #61)
  • Minor encode_multipart_formdata fixes related to Python 3 strings vs bytes.

1.2.2 (2012-02-06)

  • Fixed packaging bug of not shipping test-requirements.txt. (Issue #47)

1.2.1 (2012-02-05)

  • Fixed another bug related to when ssl module is not available. (Issue #41)
  • Location parsing errors now raise urllib3.exceptions.LocationParseError which inherits from ValueError.

1.2 (2012-01-29)

  • Added Python 3 support (tested on 3.2.2)
  • Dropped Python 2.5 support (tested on 2.6.7, 2.7.2)
  • Use select.poll instead of for platforms that support it.
  • Use Queue.LifoQueue instead of Queue.Queue for more aggressive connection reusing. Configurable by overriding ConnectionPool.QueueCls.
  • Fixed ImportError during install when ssl module is not available. (Issue #41)
  • Fixed PoolManager redirects between schemes (such as HTTP -> HTTPS) not completing properly. (Issue #28, uncovered by Issue #10 in v1.1)
  • Ported dummyserver to use tornado instead of webob + eventlet. Removed extraneous unsupported dummyserver testing backends. Added socket-level tests.
  • More tests. Achievement Unlocked: 99% Coverage.

1.1 (2012-01-07)

  • Refactored dummyserver to its own root namespace module (used for testing).
  • Added hostname verification for VerifiedHTTPSConnection by vendoring in Py32's ssl_match_hostname. (Issue #25)
  • Fixed cross-host HTTP redirects when using PoolManager. (Issue #10)
  • Fixed decode_content being ignored when set through urlopen. (Issue #27)
  • Fixed timeout-related bugs. (Issues #17, #23)

1.0.2 (2011-11-04)

  • Fixed typo in VerifiedHTTPSConnection which would only present as a bug if you're using the object manually. (Thanks pyos)
  • Made RecentlyUsedContainer (and consequently PoolManager) more thread-safe by wrapping the access log in a mutex. (Thanks @christer)
  • Made RecentlyUsedContainer more dict-like (corrected __delitem__ and __getitem__ behaviour), with tests. Shouldn't affect core urllib3 code.

1.0.1 (2011-10-10)

  • Fixed a bug where the same connection would get returned into the pool twice, causing extraneous "HttpConnectionPool is full" log warnings.

1.0 (2011-10-08)

  • Added PoolManager with LRU expiration of connections (tested and documented).
  • Added ProxyManager (needs tests, docs, and confirmation that it works with HTTPS proxies).
  • Added optional partial-read support for responses when preload_content=False. You can now make requests and just read the headers without loading the content.
  • Made response decoding optional (default on, same as before).
  • Added optional explicit boundary string for encode_multipart_formdata.
  • Convenience request methods are now inherited from RequestMethods. Old helpers like get_url and post_url should be abandoned in favour of the new request(method, url, ...).
  • Refactored code to be even more decoupled, reusable, and extendable.
  • License header added to .py files.
  • Embiggened the documentation: Lots of Sphinx-friendly docstrings in the code and docs in docs/ and on
  • Embettered all the things!
  • Started writing this file.

0.4.1 (2011-07-17)

  • Minor bug fixes, code cleanup.

0.4 (2011-03-01)

  • Better unicode support.
  • Added VerifiedHTTPSConnection.
  • Added NTLMConnectionPool in contrib.
  • Minor improvements.

0.3.1 (2010-07-13)

  • Added assert_host_name optional parameter. Now compatible with proxies.

0.3 (2009-12-10)

  • Added HTTPS support.
  • Minor bug fixes.
  • Refactored, broken backwards compatibility with 0.2.
  • API to be treated as stable from this version forward.
