mxODBC Connect Change Log

The change log includes a detailed description of all changes to this package in the recent releases.
Version: 1.0.2

Changes from 1.0.1 to 1.0.2:

  • Upgraded the eGenix pyOpenSSL version included in mxODBC Connect Server to 0.9.0-0.9.8k
  • Fixed a problem with connections sometimes timing out after 10 seconds of inactivity.
  • Connection errors now cause an implicit immediate close of the connection (without having to wait for a timeout). This allows the client to shutdown much faster when exiting the Python client application in the situation of a broken server connection.
  • Clarified the INI file format used by mxODBC Connect Server and Client and added an extra section for this to the documentation.

Changes from 1.0.0 to 1.0.1:

  • Added cursor iterator support to mxODBC Connect Client.
  • Upgraded mxODBC version included in mxODBC Connect Server to 3.0.3
  • Fixed a problem with database connections being kept alive in sessions that were not explicitly closed by the client application.
  • Fixed a bug in print_resultset() due to a missing import in one of the modules.
  • mxODBC Connect Client prebuilt archives failed to install on non-Linux platforms.
  • mxODBC Connect Client's ServerSession.close() will no longer cause error messages at Python exit time, if the close event cannot be communicated to the server.

Changes from 0.9.3 to 1.0.0:

  • Further improved the mxODBC Connect network layer, resulting in much better fetch and round-trip performance, esp. for SSL connections
  • Improved the documentation, added screenshots and more configuration notes as well as tips on how to tune the network performance
  • Fixed a problem with a full Windows event log causing the mxODBC Connect Server not to start
  • The main_timeout configuration setting in both client and server configurations was split into send_timeout and receive_timeout for better customization on asymmetric network setups
  • The default for the client's server_connections configuration option now is the sorted list of connection section names

Changes from 0.9.2 to 0.9.3:

  • Enhanced the mxODBC Connect client-server performance substantially
  • Added optional compression of all network communication (enabled per default)
  • Fixed a bug related to a missing DLL in the Windows installer of 0.9.2
  • Fixed a problem with fail-over on SSL-enabled connections

Changes from 0.9.1 to 0.9.2:
