The change log includes a detailed description of all changes to this package in the recent releases.
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
a problem with connections sometimes timing out after 10 seconds of inactivity.
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
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.
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
Improved the documentation, added screenshots and more
configuration notes as well as tips on how to tune the network
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
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:
Enhanced the SQL Server in the Linux mxODBC Connect Server version
Improved the documentation and clarified a few things
