v2.28.0

3 months ago

2.28.0 (2022-06-09)

Deprecations

  • ⚠️ Requests has officially dropped support for Python 2.7. ⚠️ (#6091)
  • Requests has officially dropped support for Python 3.6 (including pypy3). (#6091)

Improvements

  • Wrap JSON parsing issues in Request's JSONDecodeError for payloads without an encoding to make json() API consistent. (#6097)
  • Parse header components consistently, raising an InvalidHeader error in all invalid cases. (#6154)
  • Added provisional 3.11 support with current beta build. (#6155)
  • Requests got a makeover and we decided to paint it black. (#6095)

Bugfixes

  • Fixed bug where setting CURL_CA_BUNDLE to an empty string would disable cert verification. All Requests 2.x versions before 2.28.0 are affected. (#6074)
  • Fixed urllib3 exception leak, wrapping urllib3.exceptions.SSLError with requests.exceptions.SSLError for content and iter_content. (#6057)
  • Fixed issue where invalid Windows registry entires caused proxy resolution to raise an exception rather than ignoring the entry. (#6149)
  • Fixed issue where entire payload could be included in the error message for JSONDecodeError. (#6079)

v2.27.0

8 months ago

2.27.0 (2022-01-03)

Improvements

  • Officially added support for Python 3.10. (#5928)

  • Added a requests.exceptions.JSONDecodeError to unify JSON exceptions between Python 2 and 3. This gets raised in the response.json() method, and is backwards compatible as it inherits from previously thrown exceptions. Can be caught from requests.exceptions.RequestException as well. (#5856)

  • Improved error text for misnamed InvalidSchema and MissingSchema exceptions. This is a temporary fix until exceptions can be renamed (Schema->Scheme). (#6017)

  • Improved proxy parsing for proxy URLs missing a scheme. This will address recent changes to urlparse in Python 3.9+. (#5917)

Bugfixes

  • Fixed defect in extract_zipped_paths which could result in an infinite loop for some paths. (#5851)

  • Fixed handling for AttributeError when calculating length of files obtained by Tarfile.extractfile(). (#5239)

  • Fixed urllib3 exception leak, wrapping urllib3.exceptions.InvalidHeader with requests.exceptions.InvalidHeader. (#5914)

  • Fixed bug where two Host headers were sent for chunked requests. (#5391)

  • Fixed regression in Requests 2.26.0 where Proxy-Authorization was incorrectly stripped from all requests sent with Session.send. (#5924)

  • Fixed performance regression in 2.26.0 for hosts with a large number of proxies available in the environment. (#5924)

  • Fixed idna exception leak, wrapping UnicodeError with requests.exceptions.InvalidURL for URLs with a leading dot (.) in the domain. (#5414)

Deprecations

  • Requests support for Python 2.7 and 3.6 will be ending in 2022. While we don't have exact dates, Requests 2.27.x is likely to be the last release series providing support.
