Python Client Library Release Notes

  • 3.7.0
    Release Date: April 9, 2019


    • Support new relaxed read modes for SC namespaces. (via C client v4.6.1)

    BREAKING: Read consistency level changes - see Incompatible API Changes for details.

  • 3.6.0
    Release Date: January 9, 2019


    • Breaking Change: Shared Memory layout has changed. Therefore the default SHM Key has changed from `0xA7000000` to `0xA8000000` If you were specifying your own key, it is critical that this be updated for the use of client `3.6.0`

    • Removed the exceptions `BinExistsError`, `BinNotFound` .

    • Increase C client version to 4.4.0.

    • Add support for rack aware configuration.

    • Changes: Remove `use_batch_direct` policy option for `get_many`, `select_many`, `exists_many`. Code using these options will continue to work, but the option will be ignored.

    • Added the option to specify a specific node to run on a scan on, via a new optional nodename parameter. CLIENT-939

    • Added the option to specify that Query.results and Query.foreach should not return bins, via a new optional parameter options to both methods. CLIENT-915

    • Added aerospike.info_all() to allow sending of an info command to all nodes in the current cluster.

    • Added linearizeread option to read policies. Requires Enterprise server >= 4.0.0. _CLIENT-951

    • Enable aerospike.get_nodes() to run when connected to a TLS enabled server.

    • Add stricter typechecking of policy values passed in to constructor.

    • Add finer granularity to constructor policy options, adding support for setting base policies for Read, Write, Operate, Apply, Scan, Batch, Remove, and Query methods individually.

    • Simplified installation on Debian 9.

    • Breaking Change: Removed LDT (Llist) support and related methods.

    • Breaking Change: Methods which create indexes will now raise an error if the specified bin has already been indexed, or if an index with the same name already exists.

    • Breaking Change: Methods which drop indexes, will now raise an error if the named index does not exist.

    • Breaking Change: Shared memory layout has changed, and as such the default shm key has changed to '0xA7000000'. If manually specifiying an shm key, it is crucial to ensure that a separate key is used in order to prevent this version's client from sharing memory with a previous version.

    • Breaking Change: The names of certain policy fields has changed. See the documentation for up to date information. Specifically: 'timeout' has been changed into two separate fields total_timeout and socket_timeout for all policies besides 'admin' and 'info'. Currently timeout will act as an alias for total_timeout, but that should be considered deprecated, and will be removed in the future.

    • Breaking Change: retry as a key in policy dicts has been removed in favor of max_retries, and the default number of retries for read operations is now 2. WARNING: Database writes that are not idempotent (such as an aerospike.increment) should not be retried because the write operation may be performed multiple times if the client timed out previous transaction attempts. It's important to use a distinct policy for non-idempotent writes which sets max_retries = 0;

    • Documentation: Improved Doc strings for Client methods. Thanks to @Dundee for this contribution!

    • Documentation: Added to the github repository to give detailed information on changes between client versions.

    • Documentation: Updated documentation for the client policies to show new field names and defaults.

    • Documentation: Updated the documentation for certain CDT methods - list_get, list_get_range, list_size, map_size, map_get_by_key, map_get_by_key_range, map_get_by_value, map_get_by_value_range, map_get_by_index, map_get_by_index_range, map_get_by_rank, map_get_by_rank_range to accurately specify that the meta argument is currently unused in those methods.

    • Documentation: Update to include downloading the python client. CLIENT-940

    • Documentation: Fix documentation error - OS environment variables are not passed into the python build --force command. CLIENT-942

    • Documentation: Fix incorrect import of errors in code snippets.

    • Deprecation: has been deprecated. In order to send requests to the entire cluster, the new method client.info_all should be used. In order to send requests to hosts specified in a list, we recommend a loop invoking multiple calls to aerospike.info_node. See the api-changes file for an example of such code.

    • Deprecation: Setting of global policy defaults via entries in the policies dictionary in the constructor config dict has been deprecated. See the constructor documentation for the new recommended method of specifying defaults.


    • Large malloc in UDF exceptions, memory leaks in removebins, and query_apply. _CLIENT-944

    • Fix bugs in queryapply. _CLIENT-945

    • Incorrect values for predicate in query apply causes system error, crash in debug builds of python.

    • getmany, exists_many, select_many crash with byte array keys. _CLIENT-954

    • Invalid key tuple when utilizing batch direct leads to invalid free. CLIENT-955

    • Non integer values passed as arguments to query_apply inside of numeric_range_predicate, will be cast to 0.

    • Allow meta=None to be passed to arguments with an optional metadata dictionary parameter. Setting it to None will have the same effect as not providing the argument.

    • Fixed a bug where bins containing as_double type data were incorrectly freed after a put. CLIENT-496

  • 1.0.52
    Release Date: September 10, 2015

    This release collects several bug fixes for the batch read methods. If you make use of them please upgrade your client. See release 1.0.50 for more information about the way the batch read methods have changed.


    • Fixed a memory leak in the batch read methods. AER-4367

    • Fixed Issue 76 - batch-read methods get_many, exists_many, and select_many to return a 4-tuple key component. AER-4358

    • Fixed the batch read methods to accept digest keys in their keys parameter. AER-4038

  • 1.0.50
    Release Date: September 8, 2015


    • Upgraded to C client 3.1.22.

    • Support for the batch-index API. AER-3908

    • Batch methods are changing in a non-backward compatible way. In order to support batch-reads from multiple namespaces, get_many, exists_many, and select_many now return a list of records, each fitting the record tuple format.

    • Added job_info, a unified method for tracking the status of scan and query jobs. Added corresponding aerospike.JOB_STATUS_* constants.

    • Deprecated scan_info.

    • Support for secondary index record UDF (query_apply). Requires a future release of the server. AER-3981

    • Support for a native double data type. Python float bin values will convert to and from as_double. Requires server version >= 3.6.0. AER-4239

    • Added the privilege aerospike.PRIV_READ_WRITE_UDF.

    • New examples for query_apply and get_many.

    • Ensure that the examples work with Aerospike Enterprise Edition. AER-3707

    Release Date: May 19, 2015



  • 1.0.43
    Release Date: April 21, 2015


    • Allow for a `None` as the set value for index creation methods. Support scans and queries against a namespace alone (with the set given as None). AER-3462

    • Consistent Unicode Handling. This is a change in how string values are returned. Both `str` and `unicode` values are converted by the client into UTF-8 encoded strings for storage on the aerospike server. Read methods such as get, Query, Scan and operate will return that data as UTF-8 encoded str values. To get a unicode you will need to manually decode the string.

    • Fixed errors in the example scripts.


    • Fixed Issue 49 - udf_put() hangs. AER-3537

    • Fixed a segfault which happened while scanning a namespace with `None` given for the set. AER-3464

    Release Date: April 3, 2015


    • Upgraded to C client 3.1.11.
