Functionality Added or Changed
Previously, when setting up an SSL connection, the developer had
to set the
ClientFlag.SSL explicitly in the
client_flags argument of the
mysql.connector.connect() function call. Now,
whenever SSL arguments are specified, the client flag is set
automatically. This change makes the SSL behavior of
Connector/Python more consistent with other MySQL connectors.
(Bug #16217667, Bug #68172)
DistUtils command was not copying
version.py into the
build directory, so that the
build/lib directory could not be used for
development without manually copying
Passing string parameters to a stored procedure resulted in extra quotes being included in the value. This was caused by the conversion from Python to MySQL data types being applied two times. We now only convert once, and pass the values correctly.
MySQLCursor.callproc() now also raises a
ValueError when the type of an argument is
(Bug #16217743, Bug #68066)
Fixed IPv6 for older Microsoft Windows versions. Also improved
the associated code for all operating systems: we now use
socket.getaddrinfo() instead of
inet_pton() to check whether we are
connecting using IPv4 or IPv6.
A new connection option
force_ipv6 has been
introduced. When set to
True, IPv6 will be
used when an address resolves to both IPv4 and IPv6. Otherwise,
IPv4 is favored.
