ChangeLog

2.8.3 (unreleased)

  • Nothing changed yet.

2.8.2 (2019-09-06)

Bugfix:

  • #82: Restore computation of Spec.specs for single-term expressions (>=0.1.2)

2.8.1 (2019-08-29)

Bugfix:

  • Restored attribute Spec.specs, removed by mistake during the refactor.

2.8.0 (2019-08-29)

New:

  • Restore support for Python 2.

2.7.1 (2019-08-28)

Bugfix:

  • Fix parsing of npm-based caret expressions.

2.7.0 (2019-08-28)

This release brings a couple of significant changes:

  • Allow to define several range description syntaxes (SimpleSpec, NpmSpec, …)
  • Fix bugs and unexpected behaviours in the SimpleSpec implementation.

Backwards compatibility has been kept, but users should adjust their code for the new features:

  • Use SimpleSpec instead of Spec
  • Replace calls to Version('1.2', partial=True) with SimpleSpec('~1.2')
  • iter(some_spec) is deprecated.

New:

  • Allow creation of a Version directly from parsed components, as keyword arguments (Version(major=1, minor=2, patch=3))
  • Add Version.truncate() to build a truncated copy of a Version
  • Add NpmSpec(...), following strict NPM matching rules (https://docs.npmjs.com/misc/semver)
  • Add Spec.parse('xxx', syntax='<syntax>') for simpler multi-syntax support
  • Add Version().precedence_key, for use in sort(versions, key=lambda v: v.precedence_key) calls. The contents of this attribute is an implementation detail.

Bugfix:

  • Fix inconsistent behaviour regarding versions with a prerelease specification.

Deprecated:

  • Deprecate the Spec class (Removed in 3.1); use the SimpleSpec class instead
  • Deprecate the internal SpecItem class (Removed in 3.0).
  • Deprecate the partial=True form of Version; use SimpleSpec instead.

Removed:

  • Remove support for Python2 (End of life 4 months after this release)

Refactor:

  • Switch spec computation to a two-step process: convert the spec to a combination of simple comparisons with clear semantics, then use those.

2.6.0 (2016-09-25)

New:

  • #43: Add support for Django up to 1.10.

Removed:

  • Remove support for Django<1.7

Bugfix:

  • #35: Properly handle ^0.X.Y in a NPM-compatible way

2.5.0 (2016-02-12)

Bugfix:

#18: According to SemVer 2.0.0, build numbers aren’t ordered.

  • Remove specs of the Spec('<1.1.3+') form

  • Comparing Version('0.1.0') to Version('0.1.0+bcd') has new rules:

    >>> Version('0.1.0+1') == Version('0.1.0+bcd')
    False
    >>> Version('0.1.0+1') != Version('0.1.0+bcd')
    True
    >>> Version('0.1.0+1') < Version('0.1.0+bcd')
    False
    >>> Version('0.1.0+1') > Version('0.1.0+bcd')
    False
    >>> Version('0.1.0+1') <= Version('0.1.0+bcd')
    False
    >>> Version('0.1.0+1') >= Version('0.1.0+bcd')
    False
    >>> compare(Version('0.1.0+1'), Version('0.1.0+bcd'))
    NotImplemented
    
  • semantic_version.compare() returns NotImplemented when its parameters differ only by build metadata

  • Spec('<=1.3.0') now matches Version('1.3.0+abde24fe883')

  • #24: Fix handling of bumping pre-release versions, thanks to @minchinweb.

  • #30: Add support for NPM-style ^1.2.3 and ~2.3.4 specs, thanks to @skwashd
