SQLAlchemy 0.9.7 Released

permalink

SQLAlchemy release 0.9.7 is now available.

The 0.9 series is now entering maintenance mode where major new features are now targeted at the 1.0 series. Release 0.9.7 contains a wide range of bugfixes, many of which are identified as regressions from previous 0.9.X releases including three introduced in 0.9.5. All relevant fixes are of course forwards-ported to the 1.0 series and a handful are also backported to 0.8.7, being released at the same time.

A small number of new features include Postgresql JSONB support, improved Postgresql text matching features and a new event hook which allows database exceptions to be intercepted and re-thrown as new ones.

Users should carefully review the Changelog to note which behaviors and issues are affected. We'd like to thank the many contributors who helped with this release.

SQLAlchemy 0.9.7 is available on the Download Page.

SQLAlchemy release 0.9.5 is now available.

0.9.5 contains mostly bug fixes as well as some smaller enhancements, and the first to be alongside new features and refactorings going into the 1.0 release branch. While the issue queue still has a handful of critical fixes to go, it's been several months since a release so the current crop of fixes and small enhancements within 0.9.5 is due to go out. 0.9.6 should be following within the coming weeks.

Users should carefully review the Changelog to note which behaviors and issues are affected. We'd like to thank the many contributors who helped with this release.

SQLAlchemy at Pycon 2014

SQLAlchemy had a big year at this year's Pycon North America presented in Montréal, Canada. Conference presentations were given by three separate speakers, and a three hour tutorial session was given as well. Videos and supporting documents are now available in the new SQLAlchemy Library, a new site section where we're gathering every kind of learning resource we can for SQLAlchemy in one place.

This year's tutorial was a replay of Introduction to SQLAlchemy, the intro tutorial that's been presented at many conferences.
