rq v0.3.0 Release Notes

  • (August 5th, 2012)

    • Reliability improvements

      • Warm shutdown now exits immediately when Ctrl+C is pressed and worker is idle
      • Worker does not leak worker registrations anymore when stopped gracefully
    • .enqueue() does not consume the timeout kwarg anymore. Instead, to pass RQ a timeout value while enqueueing a function, use the explicit invocation instead:

        q.enqueue(do_something, args=(1, 2), kwargs={'a': 1}, timeout=30)
    • ➕ Add a @job decorator, which can be used to do Celery-style delayed invocations:

        from redis import StrictRedis
        from rq.decorators import job
        # Connect to Redis
        redis = StrictRedis()
        @job('high', timeout=10, connection=redis)
        def some_work(x, y):
            return x + y

    Then, in another module, you can call some_work:

      from foo.bar import some_work
      some_work.delay(2, 3)
