Previously, when setting up an SSL connection, the developer had to set the
ClientFlag.SSLexplicitly in the
client_flagsargument 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)
DistUtilscommand was not copying
builddirectory, so that the
build/libdirectory could not be used for development without manually copying
version.py. (Bug #16236136)
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
ValueErrorwhen the type of an argument is incorrect. (Bug #16217743, Bug #68066)
Fixed IPv6 for older Microsoft Windows versions. Also improved the associated code for all operating systems: we now use
inet_pton()to check whether we are connecting using IPv4 or IPv6.
A new connection option
force_ipv6has been introduced. When set to
True, IPv6 will be used when an address resolves to both IPv4 and IPv6. Otherwise, IPv4 is favored. (Bug #16209119)
