I’m happy to announce the release of pymssql 2.1.5, available to download via pip and GitHub. Pymssql is a simple database interface for Python that builds on top of FreeTDS to provide a Python DB-API (PEP-249) interface to Microsoft SQL Server. This is primary a Python3 compatibility release, with minor fixes in bindings to FreeTDS and test suite. The release highlights are:
- Support Python-3.8 (and upcoming 3.9). Update tests for Python-3.8 compatibility. - Use correct language level for building Cython extension. - Fix FreeTDS version checks. Add check for version 7.4. - Use Github Actions for building wheels for Linux, macOS and Windows. - Drop bundled FreeTDS-0.95 binaries.
