Second beta release.
Changed name and version of distributions to align with other MySQL projects:
The version now includes the suffix 'b' for beta and 'a' for alpha followed by a number. This version is used in the source and built distributions. GA versions will have no suffix.
The RPM spec files have been updated to create packages whose names are aligned with RPMs from other MySQL projects.
Changed how MySQL server errors are mapped to Python exceptions. We now use the
SQLState(when available) to raise a better error.
Incompatibility: some server errors now are raised with a different exception.
It is possible to override how errors are raised using the
mysql.connector.custom_error_exception()function, defined in the
mysql.connector.errorsmodule. This can be useful for certain frameworks to align with other database drivers.
Fixed version-specific code so Connector/Python works with Python 3.3. (Bug #14524942)
MySQLCursorRaw.fetchall()so it does not raise an exception when results are available. (Bug #14517262, Bug #66465)
Timeout for unit tests has been set to 10 seconds. Test cases can individually adjust it to be higher or lower. (Bug #14487502)
Fixed installation of
version.pyon OS X:
version.pyis now correctly installed on OS X in the
mysql.connectorpackage. Previously, it was installed through
version.pyended up in the system-wide package location of Python, from which it could not be imported.
data_filesis not used any longer in
setup.pyand is removed. Extra files like
version.pynow are copied in the custom
Fixed test cases in
test_mysql_database.pythat failed when using
YEAR(2)with MySQL 5.6.6 and greater. (Bug #14460680)
Fixed SSL unit testing for source distributions:
The SSL keys and certificates were missing and now are added to the source distribution. Now SSL testing works properly.
Additionally for the Windows platform, forward slashes were added to the option file creation so the MySQL server can pick up the needed SSL files.
