Change Logs

* Fri Jul 15 2016
- update to version 0.24.1:
  * IPython cell magic was lacking a good way to enable Python 3 code
    semantics. It can now be used as "%%cython -3".
  * Follow a recent change in PEP 492 and CPython 3.5.1 that now
    requires the __aiter__() method of asynchronous iterators to be a
    simple def method instead of an async def method.
  * Coroutines and generators were lacking the __module__ special
  * C++ std::complex values failed to auto-convert from and to Python
    complex objects.
  * Namespaced C++ types could not be used as memory view types due to
    lack of name mangling. Patch by Ivan Smirnov.
  * Assignments between identical C++ types that were declared with
    differently typedefed template types could fail.
  * Rebuilds could fail to evaluate dependency timestamps in C++
    mode. Patch by Ian Henriksen.
  * Macros defined in the distutils compiler option do not require
    values anymore. Patch by Ian Henriksen.
  * Minor fixes for MSVC, Cygwin and PyPy.
* Sun May 08 2016
- specfile:
  * changed to https for source url
  * updated source url to
* Fri Apr 08 2016
- specfile:
  * removed python3-Cython-c++11.patch (included upstream)
- update to version 0.24:
  * Features added
    + PEP 498: Literal String Formatting (f-strings). Original patch
    by Jelle Zijlstra.
    + PEP 515: Underscores as visual separators in number
    + Parser was adapted to some minor syntax changes in Py3.6,
    + The embedded C code comments that show the original source code
    can be discarded with the new directive
    + Cpdef enums are now first-class iterable, callable types in
    + Ctuples can now be declared in pure Python code.
    + Posix declarations for DLL loading and stdio extensions were
    added. Patch by Lars Buitinck.
    + The Py2-only builtins unicode(), xrange(), reduce() and long are
    now also available in compile time DEF expressions when
    compiling with Py3.
    + Exception type tests have slightly lower overhead. This fixes
    ticket 868.
    + @property syntax fully supported in cdef classes, old syntax
    + C++ classes can now be declared with default template
  * Bugs fixed
    + C++ exceptions raised by overloaded C++ operators were not
    always handled. Patch by Ian Henriksen.
    + C string literals were previously always stored as non-const
    global variables in the module. They are now stored as global
    constants when possible, and otherwise as non-const C string
    literals in the generated code that uses them. This improves
    compatibility with strict C compiler options and prevents
    non-const strings literals with the same content from being
    incorrectly merged.
    + Compile time evaluated str expressions (DEF) now behave in a
    more useful way by turning into Unicode strings when compiling
    under Python 3. This allows using them as intermediate values in
    expressions. Previously, they always evaluated to bytes objects.
    + isinf() declarations in libc/math.pxd and numpy/math.pxd now
    reflect the actual tristate int return value instead of using
    + Literal assignments to ctuples avoid Python tuple round-trips in
    some more corner cases.
    + Iteration over dict(...).items() failed to get optimised when
    dict arguments included keyword arguments.
    + cProfile now correctly profiles cpdef functions and methods.
* Sun Mar 27 2016
- specfile:
  * removed python3-Cython-prevent_swallowing_StopIteration_return.patch
    included upstream
- update to version 0.23.5:
  * Compile errors and warnings in integer type conversion code. This
    fixes ticket 877. Patches by Christian Neukirchen, Nikolaus Rath,
    Ian Henriksen.
  * Reference leak when "*args" argument was reassigned in closures.
  * Truth-testing Unicode strings could waste time and memory in
  * Return values of async functions could be ignored and replaced by
  * Compiler crash in CPython 3.6.
  * Fix prange() to behave identically to range(). The end condition
    was miscalculated when the range was not exactly divisible by the
  * Optimised all(genexpr)/any(genexpr) calls could warn about unused
    code. This fixes ticket 876.
* Fri Feb 12 2016
- Add python3-Cython-prevent_swallowing_StopIteration_return.patch
  to fix compatibility with python 3.5.1.  Should be included in
  next upstream release.

- update to version 0.23.3:
  * Invalid C code for some builtin methods. This fixes ticket 856
  * Incorrect C code in helper functions for PyLong conversion and
    string decoding. This fixes ticket 863, ticket 864 and ticket
    865. Original patch by Nikolaus Rath.
  * Large folded or inserted integer constants could use too small C
    integer types and thus trigger a value wrap-around.
  * The coroutine and generator types of Cython now also register
    directly with the Coroutine and Generator ABCs in the
    backports_abc module if it can be imported. This fixes ticket 870.
* Sat Sep 19 2015
- update to version 0.23.2:
  * Compiler crash when analysing some optimised expressions.
  * Coverage plugin was adapted to 4.0 beta 2.
  * C++ destructor calls could fail when '&' operator is overwritten.
  * Incorrect C literal generation for large integers in compile-time
    evaluated DEF expressions and constant folded expressions.
  * Byte string constants could end up as Unicode strings when
    originating from compile-time evaluated DEF expressions.
  * Invalid C code when caching known builtin methods. This fixes
    ticket 860.
  * ino_t in posix.types was not declared as unsigned.
  * Declarations in libcpp/memory.pxd were missing operator!(). Patch
    by Leo Razoumov.
  * Static cdef methods can now be declared in .pxd files.

    variables could fail to compile due to missing helper
    functions. This fixes ticket 851.
  * Misnamed PEP 492 coroutine property cr_yieldfrom renamed to
    cr_await to match CPython.
  * Missing deallocation code for C++ object attributes in certain
    extension class hierarchies.
  * Crash when async coroutine was not awaited.
  * Compiler crash on yield in signature annotations and default
    argument values. Both are forbidden now.
  * Compiler crash on certain constructs in finally clauses.
  * Cython failed to build when CPython's pgen is installed.
* Mon Aug 10 2015
- update to version 0.23:
  * Features added
    + PEP 492 (async/await) was implemented. See
    + PEP 448 (Additional Unpacking Generalizations) was
    implemented. See
    + Support for 4.0+ can be enabled by adding the plugin
    "Cython.Coverage" to the ".coveragerc" config file.
    + Annotated HTML source pages can integrate (XML) coverage
    + Tracing is supported in nogil functions/sections and module init
    + When generators are used in a Cython module and the module
    imports the modules "inspect" and/or "asyncio", Cython enables
    interoperability by patching these modules during the import to
    recognise Cython's internal generator and coroutine types. This
    can be disabled by C compiling the module with "-D
    + When generators or coroutines are used in a Cython module, their
    types are registered with the Generator and Coroutine ABCs in
    the collections or stdlib module at import time
    to enable interoperability with code that needs to detect and
    process Python generators/coroutines. These ABCs were added in
    CPython 3.5 and are available for older Python versions through
    the backports_abc module on PyPI. See
    + Adding/subtracting/dividing/modulus and equality comparisons
    with constant Python floats and small integers are faster.
    + Binary and/or/xor/rshift operations with small constant Python
    integers are faster.
    + When called on generator expressions, the builtins all(), any(),
    dict(), list(), set(), sorted() and unicode.join() avoid the
    generator iteration overhead by inlining a part of their
    functionality into the for-loop.
    + Keyword argument dicts are no longer copied on function entry
    when they are not being used or only passed through to other
    function calls (e.g. in wrapper functions).
    + The PyTypeObject declaration in cpython.object was extended.
    + The builtin type type is now declared as PyTypeObject in source,
    allowing for extern functions taking type parameters to have the
    correct C signatures. Note that this might break code that uses
    type just for passing around Python types in typed
    variables. Removing the type declaration provides a backwards
    compatible fix.
    + wraparound() and boundscheck() are available as no-ops in pure
    Python mode.
    + Const iterators were added to the provided C++ STL declarations.
    + Smart pointers were added to the provided C++ STL
    declarations. Patch by Daniel Filonik.
    + NULL is allowed as default argument when embedding
    signatures. This fixes ticket 843.
    + When compiling with --embed, the internal module name is changed
    to __main__ to allow arbitrary program names, including those
    that would be invalid for modules. Note that this prevents reuse
    of the generated C code as an importable module.
    + External C++ classes that overload the assignment operator can
    be used. Patch by Ian Henriksen.
    + Support operator bool() for C++ classes so they can be used in
    if statements.
  * Bugs fixed
    + Calling "yield from" from Python on a Cython generator that
    returned a value triggered a crash in CPython. This is now being
    worked around. See
    + Language level 3 did not enable true division (a.k.a. float
    division) for integer operands.
    + Functions with fused argument types that included a generic
    'object' fallback could end up using that fallback also for
    other explicitly listed object types.
    + Relative cimports could accidentally fall back to trying an
    absolute cimport on failure.
    + The result of calling a C struct constructor no longer requires
    an intermediate assignment when coercing to a Python dict.
    + C++ exception declarations with mapping functions could fail to
    compile when pre-declared in .pxd files.
    + cpdef void methods are now permitted.
    + abs(cint) could fail to compile in MSVC and used sub-optimal
    code in C++. Patch by David Vierra, original patch by Michael
    + Buffer index calculations using index variables with small C
    integer types could overflow for large buffer sizes. Original
    patch by David Vierra.
    + C unions use a saner way to coerce from and to Python dicts.
    + When compiling a module foo.pyx, the directories in sys.path are
    no longer searched when looking for foo.pxd. Patch by Jeroen
    + Memory leaks in the embedding main function were fixed. Original
    patch by Michael Enßlin.
    + Some complex Python expressions could fail to compile inside of
    finally clauses.
    + Unprefixed 'str' literals were not supported as C varargs
    + Fixed type errors in conversion enum types to/from Python. Note
    that this imposes stricter correctness requirements on enum
  * Other changes
    + Changed mangling scheme in header files generated by cdef api
    + Installation under CPython 3.3+ no longer requires a pass of the
    2to3 tool. This also makes it possible to run Cython in Python
    3.3+ from a source checkout without installing it first. Patch
    by Petr Viktorin.
    + (in Tools/) was extended and renamed to (to make it importable) and now works with and
    requires Jedi 0.9. Patch by Tzer-jen Wei.

  * Crash when returning values on generator termination.
  * In some cases, exceptions raised during internal isinstance()
    checks were not propagated.
  * Runtime reported file paths of source files (e.g for profiling and

* Sat Feb 14 2015
- specfile:
  * Cython->cython in tar ball name on pypi
  * fix update alternatives
- update to version 0.22:
  * C functions can coerce to Python functions, which allows passing
    them around as callable objects.
  * C arrays can be assigned by value and auto-coerce from Python
    iterables and to Python lists (and tuples).
  * Extern C functions can now be declared as cpdef to export them to
    the module's Python namespace. Extern C functions in pxd files
    export their values to their own module, iff it exists.
  * Anonymous C tuple types can be declared as (ctype1, ctype2, ...).
  * PEP 479: turn accidental StopIteration exceptions that exit
    generators into a RuntimeError, activated with future import
    "generator_stop". See
  * Looping over reversed(range()) is optimised in the same way as
    range(). Patch by Favian Contreras.
  * Mismatching 'except' declarations on signatures in .pxd and .pyx
    files failed to produce a compile error.
  * Failure to find any files for the path pattern(s) passed into
    cythonize() is now an error to more easily detect accidental
  * The logaddexp family of functions in numpy.math now has correct
  * In Py2.6/7 and Py3.2, simple Cython memory views could
    accidentally be interpreted as non-contiguous by CPython, which
    could trigger a CPython bug when copying data from them, thus
    leading to data corruption. See CPython issues 12834 and 23349.
  * Preliminary support for defining the Cython language with a formal
    grammar. To try parsing your files against this grammar, use the
  - -formal_grammar directive. Experimental.
  * _ is no longer considered a cacheable builtin as it could
    interfere with gettext.
