5.0.0 (2019-06-28)

Deprecations and Removals

  • removed deprecated “quickstart” command.


  • fix #636: support --ignore-bases option for project listings. Requires devpi-server >= 5.0.0 to work, older versions will still include releases from bases.
  • decoupled the functional tests from devpi-server and run devpi-server in a Python 3 virtualenv when testing with Python 2.7.
  • support --no-projects option when showing indexes and use it automatically when creating and modifying and index. Requires devpi-server >= 5.0.0 to work, older versions will still receive and show the projects.
  • sort output of index -l, use -l and user -l.

Other Changes

  • The selection of the Python interpreter used for devpi upload has changed. If used the new -p/--python option has priority, then a currently activated virtualenv, lastly the sys.executable under which devpi is running.

4.4.0 (2019-04-26)


  • implement #93: support setting password hash with devpi-server 4.9.0.

Bug Fixes

  • fix #622: deletion of package with inherited versions failed.

4.3.0 (2019-03-14)


  • support for additional commands added by plugins via devpiclient_subcommands hook.

Bug Fixes

  • Update import location for detox 0.18.

4.2.0 (2018-11-16)


  • Use server side operations for modifying indexes if the devpi-server version supports it. This prevents overwriting changes if two clients modify the same index concurrently.

4.1.0 (2018-09-09)


  • implement #565: To show toxresults with devpi list the new -t/--toxresults option is now required, the toxresults aren’t shown by default anymore.
  • implement #579: client can remove specific file with devpi remove url_to_file. This requires at least devpi-server 4.6.0

Bug Fixes

  • fix #523: better error message when index does not support upload.
