MariaDB Connector/Python enables python programs to access MariaDB and MySQL databases, using an API which is compliant with the Python DB API 2.0 (PEP-249). It is written in C and uses MariaDB Connector/C client library for client server communication.

Notable Updates

  • CONPY-46: Implemented __enter__() and __exit__() methods for with statement (PEP-343). These methods are available now for connection and cursor class.
  • CONPY-47: When sending parameters PyBool_Type wasn't supported. In case a boolean type (True/False) will be provided as a parameter, it will be converted to a tinyint (MYSQL_TYPE_TINY).
  • CONPY-48: Accept List of parameters for execute() method
  • CONPY-49: Added support for Decimal type
    • When retrieving data with column type MYSQL_TYPE_NEWDECIMAL Connector/Python now loads the decimal module and converts data from string into Pythons decimal.Decimal type.
    • Wnen sending a decimal.Decimal parameter, value will be converted to string and send with type MYSQL_TYPE_NEWDECIMAL to server.
  • CONPY-51: Store field_count internelly for buffered cursors to prevent overriding/clearing the value by connection methods which directly send commands to database server.
  • CONPY-52: Fixed double free of resultset.
