Python Client Release 1.0.43 (April 24, 2015)


#1

The 1.0.43 version of the Python client was released on April 24, 2015 and can be downloaded here.

This release boasts the following features:

  • Allow for a ‘None’ as the set value for index creation methods. Support scans and queries against a namespace alone, with the set given as None. (AER-3462)
  • Consistent Unicode Handling. This is a change in how string values are returned. Both ‘str’ and ‘unicode’ values are converted by the client into UTF-8 encoded strings for storage on the Aerospike server. Read methods such as get, Query, Scan and operate will return that data as UTF-8 encoded str values. To get a Unicode, you will need to manually decode the string.

The release also fixes three issues:

  • Fixed Issue 49 - udf_put() hangs. (AER-3537)
  • Fixed a segfault which happened while scanning a namespace with ‘None’ given for the set. (AER-3464)
  • Fixed Issue 50 - test harness skips running security methods against community edition.
