    • โž• Added support for charset-normalizer 2.1.0 (#6169)
  • v2.28.0 Changes

    June 09, 2022

    ๐Ÿ—„ Deprecations

    • ๐Ÿ‘ โš ๏ธ Requests has officially dropped support for Python 2.7. โš ๏ธ (#6091)
    • ๐Ÿ‘ Requests has officially dropped support for Python 3.6 (including pypy3.6). (#6091)

    ๐Ÿ‘Œ Improvements

    • ๐Ÿ›ฐ Wrap JSON parsing issues in Request's JSONDecodeError for payloads without an encoding to make json() API consistent. (#6097)
    • ๐Ÿ“œ Parse header components consistently, raising an InvalidHeader error in all invalid cases. (#6154)
    • โž• Added provisional 3.11 support with current beta build. (#6155)
    • Requests got a makeover and we decided to paint it black. (#6095)

    ๐Ÿ›  Bugfixes

    • Fixed bug where setting CURL_CA_BUNDLE to an empty string would disable cert verification. All Requests 2.x versions before 2.28.0 are affected. (#6074)
    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed urllib3 exception leak, wrapping urllib3.exceptions.SSLError with requests.exceptions.SSLError for content and iter_content. (#6057)
    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed issue where invalid Windows registry entires caused proxy resolution to raise an exception rather than ignoring the entry. (#6149)
    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed issue where entire payload could be included in the error message for JSONDecodeError. (#6036)
  • v2.27.1 Changes

    January 05, 2022

    ๐Ÿ›  Bugfixes

    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed parsing issue that resulted in the auth component being dropped from proxy URLs. (#6028)
  • v2.27.0 Changes

    January 03, 2022

    ๐Ÿ‘Œ Improvements

    • ๐Ÿ‘ Officially added support for Python 3.10. (#5928)

    • โž• Added a requests.exceptions.JSONDecodeError to unify JSON exceptions between Python 2 and 3. This gets raised in the response.json() method, and is backwards compatible as it inherits from previously thrown exceptions. Can be caught from requests.exceptions.RequestException as well. (#5856)

    • ๐Ÿ‘Œ Improved error text for misnamed InvalidSchema and MissingSchema exceptions. This is a temporary fix until exceptions can be renamed (Schema->Scheme). (#6017)

    • ๐Ÿ‘Œ Improved proxy parsing for proxy URLs missing a scheme. This will address recent changes to urlparse in Python 3.9+. (#5917)

    ๐Ÿ›  Bugfixes

    • Fixed defect in extract_zipped_paths which could result in an infinite loop for some paths. (#5851)

    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed handling for AttributeError when calculating length of files obtained by Tarfile.extractfile(). (#5239)

    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed urllib3 exception leak, wrapping urllib3.exceptions.InvalidHeader with requests.exceptions.InvalidHeader. (#5914)

    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed bug where two Host headers were sent for chunked requests. (#5391)

    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed regression in Requests 2.26.0 where Proxy-Authorization was incorrectly stripped from all requests sent with Session.send. (#5924)

    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed performance regression in 2.26.0 for hosts with a large number of proxies available in the environment. (#5924)

    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed idna exception leak, wrapping UnicodeError with requests.exceptions.InvalidURL for URLs with a leading dot (.) in the domain. (#5414)

    ๐Ÿ—„ Deprecations

    • ๐Ÿ‘ Requests support for Python 2.7 and 3.6 will be ending in 2022. While we don't have exact dates, Requests 2.27.x is likely to be the last release series providing support.
  • v2.26.0 Changes

    July 13, 2021

    ๐Ÿ‘Œ Improvements

    • ๐Ÿ‘ Requests now supports Brotli compression, if either the brotli or brotlicffi package is installed. (#5783)

    • ๐Ÿ”ง Session.send now correctly resolves proxy configurations from both the Session and Request. Behavior now matches Session.request. (#5681)

    ๐Ÿ›  Bugfixes

    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed a race condition in zip extraction when using Requests in parallel from zip archive. (#5707)


    • Instead of chardet, use the MIT-licensed charset_normalizer for Python3 to remove license ambiguity for projects bundling requests. If chardet is already installed on your machine it will be used instead of charset_normalizer to keep backwards compatibility. (#5797)

    You can also install chardet while installing requests by specifying [use_chardet_on_py3] extra as follows:

    pip install "requests[use_chardet_on_py3]"

    Python2 still depends upon the chardet module.

    • ๐Ÿ‘ Requests now supports idna 3.x on Python 3. idna 2.x will continue to be used on Python 2 installations. (#5711)

    ๐Ÿ—„ Deprecations

    • ๐Ÿ”’ The requests[security] extra has been converted to a no-op install. PyOpenSSL is no longer the recommended secure option for Requests. (#5867)

    • ๐Ÿ‘ Requests has officially dropped support for Python 3.5. (#5867)

  • v2.25.1 Changes

    December 16, 2020

    ๐Ÿ›  Bugfixes

    • 0๏ธโƒฃ Requests now treats application/json as utf8 by default. Resolving inconsistencies between r.text and r.json output. (#5673)


    • ๐Ÿ‘ Requests now supports chardet v4.x.
  • v2.25.0 Changes

    November 11, 2020

    ๐Ÿ‘Œ Improvements

    • โž• Added support for NETRC environment variable. (#5643)

    June 17, 2020

    ๐Ÿ‘Œ Improvements

    • pyOpenSSL TLS implementation is now only used if Python either doesn't have an ssl module or doesn't support SNI. Previously pyOpenSSL was unconditionally used if available. This applies even if pyOpenSSL is installed via the requests[security] extra (#5443)

    • Redirect resolution should now only occur when allow_redirects is True. (#5492)

    • No longer perform unnecessary Content-Length calculation for requests that won't use it. (#5496)

  • v2.23.0 Changes

    February 19, 2020

    ๐Ÿ‘Œ Improvements

    • Remove defunct reference to prefetch in Session __attrs__ (#5110)

    ๐Ÿ›  Bugfixes

    • โš  Requests no longer outputs password in basic auth usage warning. (#5099)


    • ๐Ÿ“Œ Pinning for chardet and idna now uses major version instead of minor. This hopefully reduces the need for releases every time a dependency is updated.
  • v2.22.0 Changes
