Dear MySQL users,
MySQL Connector/Python 1.1.3 is the next beta version of
the 1.1 release series of the pure Python database driver
for MySQL. It is intended to introduce users to the new features.
This release is not feature complete but it should be stable
enough for users to understand the new features and how we
expect them to work.
As is the case with all non-GA releases, it should not be used
in any production environment.
MySQL Connector/Python version 1.1.3-beta is compatible with MySQL Server
versions 5.5 and greater, but should work with earlier versions
(greater than 4.1). Python 2.6 and 2.7, as well as Python 3.1
and greater are supported.
MySQL Connector/Python 1.1.3-beta is available for download from
The ChangeLog file included in the distribution contains a brief summary
of changes in MySQL Connector/Python 1.1.3. For a more complete list of
changes, see below or online at:
Changes in MySQL Connector/Python 1.1.3 (2013-11-15, Beta)
Functionality Added or Changed
* The Connector/Python source code has been made compliant with
PEP-8 to the extent possible.
* Connection pooling did not correctly handle unavailable
servers; for a connection that could not be established, it
failed to return the connection to the pool. Now reconnection
is attempted and if that fails, the connection is returned to
the pool. (Bug #17578937)
* There was a problem saving data containing the backslash
character or 0x5c using multi-byte character sets such as
sjis, big5, or gbk. To handle this, there is a new HexLiteral
type. When a backslash is found in such as sjis, big5, or gbk
data, the string is sent as a hexadecimal literal to MySQL.
(Bug #69710, Bug #17079344)
The source distribution includes the manual in various formats under
the docs/ folder.
We welcome and appreciate your feedback and bug reports:
