SQLAlchemy 0.8.5 Released


SQLAlchemy release 0.8.5 is now available.

Release 0.8.5 is a bugfix release which includes a wide array of fixes backported from the 0.9 series. Both 0.8.5 and 0.9.3 are being released simultaneously to resolve a concurrency-related regression introduced in version 0.8.4, which can cause a dialect to sporadically be used in a mis-configured state when it first connects. For this reason, 0.8.5 is recommended for all users on 0.8.4.

Other improvements include updates to the Postgresql dialect to better handle schema reflection when working with old versions of Postgresql, namely pre-0.8.1 versions, which should also have a positive effect on those users using Amazon Redshift.

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.
