SQLAlchemy 1.3.9 Released


SQLAlchemy release 1.3.9 is now available.

Release 1.3.9 contains a variety of bug fixes and use case additions.

In particular is included support for Oracle's updated max identifier length which is 128 as of Oracle 12.2; release 1.3 won't adjust automatically, but will emit a warning that recommends the application set the desired identifier length explicitly using a new parameter max_identifier_length; the value will default to 128 for server version 12.2 and above in the 1.4 series.

Release 1.3.9 also includes support for SQLite "URI" connections supported by the Python 3 version of the driver. An ORM regression which appeared in version 1.3.6 involving the "selectinload" loader strategy is also fixed.

As is the case with all releases, we'd like to thank all the contributors who helped with this release.

Changelog for 1.3.9 is at Changelog.
