History

3.0.0 (2022-01-??)

  • Drop Python 3.6 support
  • The run() function now returns a subprocess.CompletedProcess object, which no longer allows array access operations (those were deprecated in #60)
  • The run() argument ‘raise_timeout_exception’ is now set by default, a ‘False’ value will lead to a UserWarning and a behavioural change. The argument is now deprecated and will be removed in a future version. (previously introduced in #61)
  • Calling the run() function with multiple unnamed arguments is no longer supported (previously deprecated in #62)
  • The run() function no longer accepts a ‘debug’ argument (previously deprecated in #63)

2.3.3 (2022-03-23)

  • Allow specifying ‘preexec_fn’ and ‘creationflags’ keywords, which will be passed through to the subprocess call

2.3.2 (2022-01-28)

  • The run() function now understands stdin=subprocess.DEVNULL to close the subprocess stdin, rather than to connect through the existing stdin, which is the current default

2.3.1 (2021-10-25)

  • Add Python 3.10 support

2.3.0 (2020-10-29)

  • Add Python 3.9 support, drop Python 3.5 support
  • Fix a file descriptor leak on subprocess execution

2.2.0 (2020-09-07)

  • Calling the run() function with unnamed arguments (other than the command list as the first argument) is now deprecated. As a number of arguments will be removed in a future version the use of unnamed arguments will cause future confusion. Use explicit keyword arguments instead (#62).
  • The run() function debug argument has been deprecated (#63). This is only used to debug the NonBlockingStream* classes. Those are due to be replaced in a future release, so the argument will no longer serve a purpose. Debugging information remains available via standard logging mechanisms.
  • Final version supporting Python 3.5

2.1.0 (2020-09-05)

  • Deprecated array access on the return object (#60). The return object will become a subprocess.CompletedProcess in a future release, which no longer allows array-based access. For a translation table of array elements to attributes please see the pull request linked above.
  • Add a new parameter ‘raise_timeout_exception’ (#61). When set to ‘True’ a subprocess.TimeoutExpired exception is raised when the process runtime exceeds the timeout threshold. This defaults to ‘False’ and will be set to ‘True’ in a future release.

2.0.0 (2020-06-24)

  • Python 3.5+ only, support for Python 2.7 has been dropped
  • Deprecated function alias run_process() has been removed
  • Fixed a stability issue on Windows

1.1.0 (2019-11-04)

  • Add Python 3.8 support, drop Python 3.4 support

1.0.2 (2019-05-20)

  • Stop environment override variables leaking into the process environment

1.0.1 (2019-04-16)

  • Minor fixes on the return object (implement equality, mark as unhashable)

1.0.0 (2019-03-25)

  • Support file system path objects (PEP-519) in arguments
  • Change the return object to make it similar to subprocess.CompletedProcess, introduced with Python 3.5+

0.9.1 (2019-02-22)

  • Have deprecation warnings point to correct code locations

0.9.0 (2018-12-07)

  • Trap UnicodeEncodeError when printing output. Offending characters are replaced and a warning is logged once. Hints at incorrectly set PYTHONIOENCODING.

0.8.1 (2018-12-04)

  • Fix a few deprecation warnings

0.8.0 (2018-10-09)

  • Add parameter working_directory to set the working directory of the subprocess

0.7.2 (2018-10-05)

  • Officially support Python 3.7

0.7.1 (2018-09-03)

  • Accept environment variable overriding with numeric values.

0.7.0 (2018-05-13)

  • Unicode fixes. Fix crash on invalid UTF-8 input.
  • Clarify that stdout/stderr values are returned as bytestrings.
  • Callbacks receive the data decoded as UTF-8 unicode strings with unknown characters replaced by ufffd (unicode replacement character). Same applies to printing of output.
  • Mark stdin broken on Windows.

0.6.1 (2018-05-02)

  • Maintenance release to add some tests for executable resolution.

0.6.0 (2018-05-02)

  • Fix Win32 API executable resolution for commands containing a dot (‘.’) in addition to a file extension (say ‘.bat’).

0.5.1 (2018-04-27)

  • Fix Win32API dependency installation on Windows.

0.5.0 (2018-04-26)

  • New keyword ‘win32resolve’ which only takes effect on Windows and is enabled by default. This causes procrunner to call the Win32 API FindExecutable() function to try and lookup non-.exe files with the corresponding name. This means .bat/.cmd/etc.. files can now be run without explicitly specifying their extension. Only supported on Python 2.7 and 3.5+.

0.4.0 (2018-04-23)

  • Python 2.7 support on Windows. Python3 not yet supported on Windows.

0.3.0 (2018-04-17)

  • run_process() renamed to run()
  • Python3 compatibility fixes

0.2.0 (2018-03-12)

  • Procrunner is now Python3 3.3-3.6 compatible.

0.1.0 (2018-03-12)

  • First release on PyPI.
