SQLObject 3.0.0 (master)

SQLObject 2.0.0

Features & Interface

  • DateTimeCol and TimeCol can read and write values with microseconds.

    WARNING: microseconds are supported by MariaDB since version 5.3.0 and by MySQL since version 5.6.4, and even these versions require special handling: columns to store microseconds have to be declared with precision 6: TIME(6), DATETIME(6), TIMESTAMP(6). SQLObject does the right thing when creating a new database but existing databases have to be changed: run something like ALTER TABLE name MODIFY COLUMN col TIME(6) for every column that you want to store microseconds.

    WARNING: backward compatibility problem! Date/Time columns created with microseconds cannot be read back from SQLite databases (and perhaps other backends) with versions of SQLObject older than 1.7.

Minor features

  • PostgresConnection, when used with fromDatabase=True, sets alternateID for unique columns.

Development

  • Development was switched from Subversion to git.

  • News.txt was split into 5 small files.

SQLObject 1.1

Released 20 Jun 2011.

Features & Interface

  • SelectResults (returned from .select()) is allowed in IN(column, list).
  • A different workaround is used in SQLiteConnection to prevent PySQLite from converting strings to unicode - in the case of a registered text conversion function PySQLite silently converts empty strings to Nones; now SQLObject uses text_factory instead and properly returns empty strings.
  • It is now possible to declare one encoding for all UnicodeCol's per table (as sqlmeta.dbEncoding) or per connection (as connection.dbEncoding). Default (if dbEncoding is found neither in column nor in table nor in connection) is 'utf-8'.

Source code and internals

  • A new module __version__.py was added. New variables version (string) and version_info (5-tuple: major, minor, micro, release level, serial) are imported into sqlobject namespace.
  • In SQLite, id columns are made AUTOINCREMENT.
  • Parameter backend in DB URI is no longer supported, use parameter driver.
