MariaDB Connector/Python 1.1.8 Release Notes
Release date: 16 Oct 2023
This is a stable release of the MariaDB Connector/Python.
For a description of this library see the MariaDB Connector/Python documentation .
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.
- CONPY-271: Cusor object provides now a metadata attribute, which returns resultset metadata as a dictionary. metadata attribute also contains information about extended field types like JSON, UUID, INET4/6 and geometry types.
- Added new constants mariadb.constants.EXT_FIELD_TYPE which describe extended field types..
- CONPY-270: Data will be converted to Binary only if the character set is binary, the BINARY_FLAG will be ignored.
- CONPY-269: If cursors rowcount attribute will be retrieved after the cursor was closed, rowcount now returns -1 instead of raising an exception. This is a workaround for a pandas bug.
