ZODB v5.5.0 Release Notes

Release Date: 2018-10-13 // about 4 years ago
    • ➕ Add support for Python 3.7.

    • ⬆️ Bump the dependency on zodbpickle to at least 1.0.1. This is required to avoid a memory leak on Python 2.7. See issue 203 <https://github.com/zopefoundation/ZODB/issues/203>_.

    • ⬆️ Bump the dependency on persistent to at least 4.4.0.

    • 👉 Make the internal support functions for dealing with OIDs (p64 and u64) somewhat faster and raise more informative exceptions on certain types of bad input. See issue 216 <https://github.com/zopefoundation/ZODB/issues/216>_.

    • ✂ Remove support for python setup.py test. It hadn't been working for some time. See issue #218 <https://github.com/zopefoundation/ZODB/issues/218>_.

    • ✅ Make the tests run faster by avoiding calls to time.sleep().
