Release History

1.0.0b1 (2020-10-13)

This is beta preview version.

This version uses a next-generation code generator that introduces important breaking changes, but also important new features (like unified authentication and async programming).

General breaking changes

  • Credential system has been completly revamped:

    • azure.common.credentials or msrestazure.azure_active_directory instances are no longer supported, use the azure-identity classes instead:
    • credentials parameter has been renamed credential
  • The config attribute no longer exists on a client, configuration should be passed as kwarg. Example: MyClient(credential, subscription_id, enable_logging=True). For a complete set of supported options, see the parameters accept in init documentation of azure-core

  • You can't import a version module anymore, use __version__ instead

  • Operations that used to return a msrest.polling.LROPoller now returns a azure.core.polling.LROPoller and are prefixed with begin_.

  • Exceptions tree have been simplified and most exceptions are now azure.core.exceptions.HttpResponseError (CloudError has been removed).

  • Most of the operation kwarg have changed. Some of the most noticeable:

General new features

  • Type annotations support using typing. SDKs are mypy ready.
  • This client has now stable and official support for async. Check the aio namespace of your package to find the async client.
  • This client now support natively tracing library like OpenCensus or OpenTelemetry. See this tracing quickstart for an overview.

0.60.0 (2019-06-25)

Breaking changes

General Breaking changes

This version uses a next-generation code generator that might introduce breaking changes if you were importing from the v20xx_yy_zz API folders. In summary, some modules were incorrectly visible/importable and have been renamed. This fixed several issues caused by usage of classes that were not supposed to be used in the first place.

  • AuthorizationManagementClient cannot be imported from azure.mgmt.authorization.v20xx_yy_zz.authorization_management_client anymore (import from azure.mgmt.authorization.v20xx_yy_zz works like before)
  • AuthorizationManagementClientConfiguration import has been moved from azure.mgmt.authorization.v20xx_yy_zz.authorization_management_client to azure.mgmt.authorization.v20xx_yy_zz
  • A model MyClass from a "models" sub-module cannot be imported anymore using azure.mgmt.authorization.v20xx_yy_zz.models.my_class (import from azure.mgmt.authorization.v20xx_yy_zz.models works like before)
  • An operation class MyClassOperations from an operations sub-module cannot be imported anymore using azure.mgmt.authorization.v20xx_yy_zz.operations.my_class_operations (import from azure.mgmt.authorization.v20xx_yy_zz.operations works like before)

Last but not least, HTTP connection pooling is now enabled by default. You should always use a client as a context manager, or call close(), or use no more than one client per process.
