This release focused on session pools. Specifically, a session callback may now be specified when a pool is created. This allows an application to improve performance by reducing the number of round trips to the database needed in order to set session state.
A number of smaller enhancements and bug fixes were also made. See the full release notes for all of the details: https://cx-oracle.readthedocs.io/en/latest/releasenotes.html#version-7-1-feb...
