What's New in Python 2.6.6 rc 1?

*Release date: 2010-08-03*

Core and Builtins

- Issue #6213: Implement getstate() and setstate() methods of utf-8-sig and
utf-16 incremental encoders.

- Issue #8271: during the decoding of an invalid UTF-8 byte sequence, only the
start byte and the continuation byte(s) are now considered invalid, instead
of the number of bytes specified by the start byte.
E.g.: '\xf1\x80AB'.decode('utf-8', 'replace') now returns u'\ufffdAB' and
replaces with U+FFFD only the start byte ('\xf1') and the continuation byte
('\x80') even if '\xf1' is the start byte of a 4-bytes sequence.
Previous versions returned a single u'\ufffd'.

- Issue #9058: Remove assertions about INT_MAX in UnicodeDecodeError.

- Issue #8941: decoding big endian UTF-32 data in UCS-2 builds could crash
the interpreter with characters outside the Basic Multilingual Plane
(higher than 0x10000).

- Issue #8627: Remove bogus "Overriding __cmp__ blocks inheritance of
__hash__ in 3.x" warning. Also fix "XXX undetected error" that
arises from the "Overriding __eq__ blocks inheritance ..." warning
when turned into an exception: in this case the exception simply
gets ignored.

- Issue #4108: In urllib.robotparser, if there are multiple 'User-agent: *'
entries, consider the first one.

- Issue #9354: Provide getsockopt() in asyncore's file_wrapper.

- In the unicode/str.format(), raise a ValueError when indexes to arguments are
too large.

- Issue #3798: Write sys.exit() message to sys.stderr to use stderr encoding
and error handler, instead of writing to the C stderr file in utf-8

- Issue #7902: When using explicit relative import syntax, don't try
implicit relative import semantics.

- Issue #7079: Fix a possible crash when closing a file object while using
it from another thread. Patch by Daniel Stutzbach.

- Issue #1533: fix inconsistency in range function argument
processing: any non-float non-integer argument is now converted to
an integer (if possible) using its __int__ method. Previously, only
small arguments were treated this way; larger arguments (those whose
__int__ was outside the range of a C long) would produce a TypeError.

- Issue #8417: Raise an OverflowError when an integer larger than sys.maxsize
is passed to bytearray.

- Issue #8329: Don't return the same lists from select.select when no fds are

- Raise a TypeError when trying to delete a T_STRING_INPLACE struct member.

- Issue #1583863: An unicode subclass can now override the __unicode__ method.

- Issue #7507: Quote "!" in pipes.quote(); it is special to some shells.

a fatal error in low memory condition.

- Issue #7820: The parser tokenizer restores all bytes in the right if
the BOM check fails.

- Issue #7072: isspace(0xa0) is true on Mac OS X


- Issue #5753: A new C API function, :cfunc:`PySys_SetArgvEx`, allows
embedders of the interpreter to set sys.argv without also modifying
sys.path. This helps fix `CVE-2008-5983
< http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2008-5983>;`_.


- Issue #8447: Make distutils.sysconfig follow symlinks in the path to
the interpreter executable. This fixes a failure of test_httpservers

when using the -3 flag. Patch by Florent Xicluna.

string when Unicode was previously output.

- Issue #8397: Raise an error when attempting to mix iteration and regular
reads on a BZ2File object, rather than returning incorrect results.

- Issue #8620: when a Cmd is fed input that reaches EOF without a final
newline, it no longer truncates the last character of the last command line.

- Issue #7066: archive_util.make_archive now restores the cwd if an error is
raised. Initial patch by Ezio Melotti.

- Issue #5006: Better handling of unicode byte-order marks (BOM) in the io

- Issue #3704: cookielib was not properly handling URLs with a / in the

- Issue #8313: traceback.format_exception_only() encodes unicode message to
ASCII with backslashreplace error handler if str(value) failed

- Issue #8567: Fix precedence of signals in Decimal module: when a
Decimal operation raises multiple signals and more than one of those
signals is trapped, the specification determines the order in which
the signals should be handled. In many cases this order wasn't
being followed, leading to the wrong Python exception being raised.

exceptions raised by the implicit flush(). Also ensure that calling

Sridhar Ratnakumar.

- Issue #2302: Fix a race condition in SocketServer.BaseServer.shutdown,
where the method could block indefinitely if called just before the
event loop started running. This also fixes the occasional freezes
witnessed in test_httpservers.

- Issue #5103: SSL handshake would ignore the socket timeout and block
indefinitely if the other end didn't respond.

- The do_handshake() method of SSL objects now adjusts the blocking mode of
the SSL structure if necessary (as other methods already do).

underlying socket from being closed until all objects get truely destroyed.

- Issue #7943: Fix circular reference created when instantiating an SSL
socket. Initial patch by P辿ter Szab坦.

now silenced.

- Issue #3890, #8222: Fix recv() and recv_into() on non-blocking SSL sockets.
Also, enable the SSL_MODE_AUTO_RETRY flag on SSL sockets, so that blocking
reads and writes are always retried by OpenSSL itself.

- Issue #6544: fix a reference leak in the kqueue implementation's error

- Issue #7774: Set sys.executable to an empty string if argv[0] has been
set to an non existent program name and Python is unable to retrieve the real

- Issue #9422: Fix memory leak when re-initializing a struct.Struct object.

- Issue #7900: The getgroups(2) system call on MacOSX behaves rather oddly
compared to other unix systems. In particular, os.getgroups() does
not reflect any changes made using os.setgroups() but basicly always
returns the same information as the id command.

os.getgroups() can now return more than 16 groups on MacOSX.

- Issue #9277: Fix bug in struct.pack for bools in standard mode
(e.g., struct.pack('>?')): if conversion to bool raised an exception
then that exception wasn't properly propagated on machines where
char is unsigned.

- Issue #7384: If the system readline library is linked against
ncurses, do not link the readline module against ncursesw. The
additional restriction of linking the readline and curses modules
against the same curses library is currently not enabled.

ERROR_MORE_DATA, requiring a re-try in order to get the complete result.

effectively raised. A new private utility ``_check_py3k_warnings`` has been
backported to help silencing py3k warnings.

- Issue #8672: Add a zlib test ensuring that an incomplete stream can be
handled by a decompressor object without errors (it returns incomplete
uncompressed data).

results with OpenSSL 1.0.0 and higher.

- Issue #8576: Remove use of find_unused_port() in test_smtplib and
test_multiprocessing. Patch by Paul Moore.

- Issue #7027: regrtest.py keeps a reference to the encodings.ascii module as a
workaround to #7140 bug

- Issue #3864: Skip three test_signal tests on freebsd6 because they fail
if any thread was previously started, most likely due to a platform bug.
