- introduce execnet.dumps/loads providing serialization between
- group.remote_exec now supports kwargs as well
- support per channel string coercion configuration
- Popen2IO.read now reads correct amounts of bytes from nonblocking fd’s
- added a dont_write_bytecode option to Popen gateways, this sets the
sys.dont_write_bytecode flag on the spawned process, this only works on
CPython 2.6 and higher. Thanks to Alex Gaynor.
- added a pytest –broken-isp option to skip tests that assume
DNS queries for unknown hosts actually are resolved as such (Thanks
- fix issue 1 - decouple string coercion of channels and gateway
- fix issue #2 - properly reconfigure the channels string coercion for rsync,
so it can send from python2 to python3
- refactor socketserver, so it can be directly remote_exec’d for starting a socket gateway on a remote
- add gw.reconfigure() to configure per gateway options. Currently supported:
py2str_as_py3str and py3str_as_py2str to configure string deserialization
- channel.makefile() objects now have a isatty() returning False
- group.allocate_id(spec) allows to early-determine an (automatic) id
- internal refactorings and cleanups (thanks Ronny Pfannschmidt):
- refactor message types into received handler functions
- refactor b(chr(opcode)) to bchr(opcode)
- reorder Message ctor args, rename msgtype to msgcode
- refactor gateway.send to take message’s init args instead of a message
- inline and remove Message.writeto/readfrom
- refactor collection loading to avoid the indirection over tuple
- remove the unused NamedThreadPool
- new gateway.remote_exec(func, **kwargs) style fo executing
a pure function with parameters. The function on the remote
side also needs to accept a channel which allows it to
communicate back and forth. Thanks to Ronny Pfannschmidt
for implementing it with special kudos to Maciej Fijalkowski
for writing a “pure-function” checker so that on Python2.6
onwards non-pure functions will be rejected.
- enhance rsyncing to also sync permissions (stat().st_mode)
of directories and files.
(should also resolve http://bitbucket.org/hpk42/py-trunk/issue/68/)
- fix rsyncing of symlinks, thanks to Charles Solar
(should also resolve http://bitbucket.org/hpk42/py-trunk/issue/70/)
- update internal usage of apipkg to 1.0b6
- remote_exec(module) now makes sure that the linecache is updated
before reading and sending the source. thanks Ronny, Matt.
- removed all trailing whitespace from source files
- try to avoid a random KeyboardInterrupt Error when threads
- extend xspec syntax to allow for one or multiple “env:NAME=value”
environment variable settings which will be set on the remote side.
(thanks Jakub Gustak)
- fix jython/windows interactions
- fix waitclose/callback-with-endmarker race condition
- fix race condition where multiple threads sending data over channels
would crash the serializer and process
- more care during receiver-thread finalization during interp-shutdown,
should get rid of annoying and meaningless exceptions
- fix glitch in ssh-fileserver example
- experimentally add “setup.py test” support - will run py.test
- try to deal more cleanly with interpreter shutdown setting globals to
None. this avoids (hopefully) some bogus tracebacks at process exit.
- refine termination some more: CTRL-C and gateway.exit will
now try harder to interrupt remote execution. this
helps to avoid left-over ssh-processes.
- fix read-on-non-blocking-files issue probably related to jython only:
the low-level read on subprocess pipes may be non-blocking, returning
less bytes than requested - so we now loop.
- Windows/python2.4: fix bug that killing subprocesses would fail
- make RemoteError and TimeoutError available directly on execnet namespace
- fix some doc and test issues (thanks thm and ronny), add ssh_fileserver example
- update internal copy of apipkg
- always skip remote tests if no ssh specs given
- generalize channel-over-channel sending: you can now have channels
anywhere in a data structure (i.e. as an item of a container type).
Add according examples.
- automatically close a channel when a remote callback raises
an exception, makes communication more robust because until
now failing callbacks rendered the receiverthread unuseable
leaving the remote side in-accessible.
- internally split socket gateways, speeds up popen-gateways
by 10% (now at <50 milliseconds per-gateway on a 1.5 GHZ machine)
- fix bug in channel.receive() that would wrongly raise a TimeoutError
after 1000 seconds (thanks Ronny Pfannschmidt)
- revamp and better structure documentation
- new method: gateway.hasreceiver() returns True
if the gateway is still receive-active. remote_status
now only carries information about remote execution status.
- new: execnet.MultiChannel provides basic iteration/contain interface
- new: execnet.Group can be indexed by integer
- new: group.makegateway() uses group.default_spec if no spec is given
and the execnet.default_group uses popen as a default spec.
- have popen-gateways use imports instead of source-strings,
also improves debugging/tracebacks, as a side effect
popen-gateway startup can be substantially faster (>30%)
- refine internal gateway exit/termination procedure
and introduce group.terminate(timeout) which will
attempt to kill all subprocesses that did not terminate
- EOFError on channel.receive/waitclose if the other
side unexpectedly went away. When a gateway exits
it now internally sends an explicit termination message
instead of abruptly closing.
- introduce a timeout parameter to channel.receive()
and default to periodically internally wake up
to let KeyboardInterrupts pass through.
- EXECNET_DEBUG=2 will cause tracing to go to stderr,
which with popen slave gateways will relay back
tracing to the instantiator process.
- introduce execnet.Group for managing gateway creation
and termination. Introduce execnet.default_group through which
all “global” calls are routed. cleanup gateway termination.
All Gateways get an id through which they can be
retrieved from a group object.
- deprecate execnet.XYZGateway in favour of direct makegateway() calls.
- refine socketserver-examples, experimentally introduce a
way to indirectly setup a socket server (“installvia”)
through a gateway url.
- refine and automatically test documentation examples
- fix EXECNET_DEBUG to work with win32
- add support for serializing longs, sets and frozensets (thanks
- introduce remote_status() method which on the low level gives
information about the remote side of a gateway
- disallow explicit close in remote_exec situation
- perform some more detailed tracing with EXECNET_DEBUG
- make internal protocols more robust against serialization failures
- fix a seralization bug with nested tuples containing empty tuples
(thanks to ronny for discovering it)
- setting the environment variable EXECNET_DEBUG will generate per
process trace-files for debugging
- added new examples for NumPy, Jython, IronPython
- improved documentation
- include apipkg.py for lazy-importing
- integrated new serializer code from Benjamin Peterson
- improved support for Jython-2.5.1
- improve documentation, new website
- use sphinx for documentation, added boilerplate files and setup.py
- fixes for standalone usage, adding boilerplate files
- imported py/execnet and made it work standalone
