The ZODB 3.8.0b1 release is available at:
The major changes since 3.8.0a1 are in Blobs. Blobs have been re-
factored a fair bit.
Some backward incompatible changes include:
- The Blob class is now imported from ZODB.blob.
- The Blob openDetached method has bee replaced by the committed
method. It is now possible to get a blob file name that can be
handed to external programs for reading.
- Text-mode blobs are no-longer supported. All blobs are implicitly
in binary mode. There is no need to specify this in the blob open
method. The valid modes, 'r', 'w', 'a', and 'r+' are all implicitly
- Calling consumeFile with an open file is no-longer supported.
I've also made a 3.8 release branch. Any bug fixes should be applied
to the branch, the trunk and earlier branches as appropriate. Work
toward 3.9 can proceed on the trunk.
