  • v2.4.1 Changes

    September 09, 2014
    • 🔒 Now has a "security" package extras set, $ pip install requests[security]
    • Requests will now use Certifi if it is available.
    • Capture and re-raise urllib3 ProtocolError
    • 🛠 Bugfix for responses that attempt to redirect to themselves forever (wtf?).
  • v2.4.0 Changes

    August 29, 2014

    Behavioral Changes

    • Connection: keep-alive header is now sent automatically.

    👌 Improvements

    • ⏱ Support for connect timeouts! Timeout now accepts a tuple (connect, read) which is used to set individual connect and read timeouts.
    • Allow copying of PreparedRequests without headers/cookies.
    • ⚡️ Updated bundled urllib3 version.
    • 🔨 Refactored settings loading from environment -- new Session.merge_environment_settings.
    • Handle socket errors in iter_content.
  • v2.3.0 Changes

    May 16, 2014

    API Changes

    • New Response property is_redirect, which is true when the library could have processed this response as a redirection (whether or not it actually did).
    • ⏱ The timeout parameter now affects requests with both stream=True and stream=False equally.
    • The change in v2.0.0 to mandate explicit proxy schemes has been reverted. Proxy schemes now default to http://.
    • The CaseInsensitiveDict used for HTTP headers now behaves like a normal dictionary when references as string or viewed in the interpreter.

    🛠 Bugfixes

    • No longer expose Authorization or Proxy-Authorization headers on redirect. Fix CVE-2014-1829 and CVE-2014-1830 respectively.
    • Authorization is re-evaluated each redirect.
    • On redirect, pass url as native strings.
    • Fall-back to autodetected encoding for JSON when Unicode detection fails.
    • Headers set to None on the Session are now correctly not sent.
    • Correctly honor decode_unicode even if it wasn't used earlier in the same response.
    • 👍 Stop advertising compress as a supported Content-Encoding.
    • The Response.history parameter is now always a list.
    • 🛠 Many, many urllib3 bugfixes.
  • v2.2.1 Changes

    January 23, 2014

    🛠 Bugfixes

    • 📜 Fixes incorrect parsing of proxy credentials that contain a literal or encoded '#' character.
    • 🛠 Assorted urllib3 fixes.
  • v2.2.0 Changes

    January 09, 2014

    API Changes

    • 👻 New exception: ContentDecodingError. Raised instead of urllib3 DecodeError exceptions.

    🛠 Bugfixes

    • Avoid many many exceptions from the buggy implementation of proxy_bypass on OS X in Python 2.6.
    • Avoid crashing when attempting to get authentication credentials from ~/.netrc when running as a user without a home directory.
    • Use the correct pool size for pools of connections to proxies.
    • Fix iteration of CookieJar objects.
    • Ensure that cookies are persisted over redirect.
    • 🔀 Switch back to using chardet, since it has merged with charade.
  • v2.1.0 Changes

    December 05, 2013
    • ⚡️ Updated CA Bundle, of course.
    • Cookies set on individual Requests through a Session (e.g. via Session.get()) are no longer persisted to the Session.
    • Clean up connections when we hit problems during chunked upload, rather than leaking them.
    • Return connections to the pool when a chunked upload is successful, rather than leaking it.
    • Match the HTTPbis recommendation for HTTP 301 redirects.
    • Prevent hanging when using streaming uploads and Digest Auth when a 401 is received.
    • Values of headers set by Requests are now always the native string type.
    • 👍 Fix previously broken SNI support.
    • Fix accessing HTTP proxies using proxy authentication.
    • Unencode HTTP Basic usernames and passwords extracted from URLs.
    • 👍 Support for IP address ranges for no_proxy environment variable
    • 0️⃣ Parse headers correctly when users override the default Host: header.
    • Avoid munging the URL in case of case-sensitive servers.
    • Looser URL handling for non-HTTP/HTTPS urls.
    • Accept unicode methods in Python 2.6 and 2.7.
    • More resilient cookie handling.
    • Make Response objects pickleable.
    • Actually added MD5-sess to Digest Auth instead of pretending to like last time.
    • ⚡️ Updated internal urllib3.
    • 🛠 Fixed @Lukasa's lack of taste.
  • v2.0.1 Changes

    October 24, 2013
    • ⚡️ Updated included CA Bundle with new mistrusts and automated process for the future
    • Added MD5-sess to Digest Auth
    • Accept per-file headers in multipart file POST messages.
    • 🛠 Fixed: Don't send the full URL on CONNECT messages.
    • 🛠 Fixed: Correctly lowercase a redirect scheme.
    • 🛠 Fixed: Cookies not persisted when set via functional API.
    • 🛠 Fixed: Translate urllib3 ProxyError into a requests ProxyError derived from ConnectionError.
    • ⚡️ Updated internal urllib3 and chardet.
  • v2.0.0 Changes

    September 24, 2013

    API Changes:

    • Keys in the Headers dictionary are now native strings on all Python versions, i.e. bytestrings on Python 2, unicode on Python 3.
    • Proxy URLs now must have an explicit scheme. A MissingSchema exception will be raised if they don't.
    • Timeouts now apply to read time if Stream=False.
    • RequestException is now a subclass of IOError, not RuntimeError.
    • Added new method to PreparedRequest objects: PreparedRequest.copy().
    • ⚡️ Added new method to Session objects: Session.update_request(). This method updates a Request object with the data (e.g. cookies) stored on the Session.
    • Added new method to Session objects: Session.prepare_request(). This method updates and prepares a Request object, and returns the corresponding PreparedRequest object.
    • Added new method to HTTPAdapter objects: HTTPAdapter.proxy_headers(). This should not be called directly, but improves the subclass interface.
    • httplib.IncompleteRead exceptions caused by incorrect chunked encoding will now raise a Requests ChunkedEncodingError instead.
    • Invalid percent-escape sequences now cause a Requests InvalidURL exception to be raised.
    • HTTP 208 no longer uses reason phrase "im_used". Correctly uses "already_reported".
    • HTTP 226 reason added ("im_used").
