./lang/python36, Interpreted, interactive, object-oriented programming language

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 3.6.8, Package name: python36-3.6.8, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

Python is an interpreted, interactive, object-oriented
programming language that combines remarkable power with
very clear syntax. For an introduction to programming in
Python you are referred to the Python Tutorial. The
Python Library Reference documents built-in and standard
types, constants, functions and modules. Finally, the
Python Reference Manual describes the syntax and semantics
of the core language in (perhaps too) much detail.

Python's basic power can be extended with your own modules
written in C or C++. On most systems such modules may be
dynamically loaded. Python is also adaptable as an exten-
sion language for existing applications. See the internal
documentation for hints.

This package provides Python version 3.6.x.

python36: updated to 3.6.8

Python 3.6.8 final

- bpo-31715: Associate .mjs file extension with application/javascript MIME Type.

- bpo-35499: make profile-opt no longer replaces CFLAGS_NODIST with CFLAGS. It \ 
now adds profile-guided optimization (PGO) flags to CFLAGS_NODIST: existing \ 
CFLAGS_NODIST flags are kept.
- bpo-35257: Avoid leaking the linker flags from Link Time Optimizations (LTO) \ 
into distutils when compiling C extensions.

- bpo-35259: Conditionally declare Py_FinalizeEx() (new in 3.6) based on \ 

Python 3.6.8 release candidate 1

- bpo-34812: The -I command line option (run Python in isolated mode) is now \ 
also copied by the multiprocessing and distutils modules when spawning child \ 
processes. Previously, only -E and -s options (enabled by -I) were copied.
- bpo-34791: The xml.sax and xml.dom.domreg no longer use environment variables \ 
to override parser implementations when sys.flags.ignore_environment is set by \ 
-E or -I arguments.

Core and Builtins
- bpo-35444: Fixed error handling in pickling methods when fail to look up \ 
builtin “getattr”.
- bpo-35436: Fix various issues with memory allocation error handling. Patch by \ 
Zackery Spytz.
- bpo-35357: Internal attributes’ names of unittest.mock._Call and \ 
unittest.mock.MagicProxy (name, parent & from_kall) are now prefixed with \ 
_mock_ in order to prevent clashes with widely used object attributes. Fixed \ 
minor typo in test function name.
- bpo-35372: Fixed the code page decoder for input longer than 2 GiB containing \ 
undecodable bytes.
- bpo-33954: For str.format(), float.__format__() and complex.__format__() \ 
methods for non-ASCII decimal point when using the “n” formatter.
- bpo-35214: Fixed an out of bounds memory access when parsing a truncated \ 
unicode escape sequence at the end of a string such as '\N'. It would read one \ 
byte beyond the end of the memory allocation.
- bpo-35214: The interpreter and extension modules have had annotations added so \ 
that they work properly under clang’s Memory Sanitizer. A new configure flag \ 
–with-memory-sanitizer has been added to make test builds of this nature \ 
easier to perform.
- bpo-35193: Fix an off by one error in the bytecode peephole optimizer where it \ 
could read bytes beyond the end of bounds of an array when removing unreachable \ 
code. This bug was present in every release of Python 3.6 until now.
- bpo-29341: Clarify in the docstrings of os methods that path-like objects are \ 
also accepted as input parameters.
- bpo-35050: socket: Fix off-by-one bug in length check for AF_ALG name and type.
- bpo-34974: bytes and bytearray constructors no longer convert unexpected \ 
exceptions (e.g. MemoryError and KeyboardInterrupt) to TypeError.
- bpo-34973: Fixed crash in bytes() when the list argument is mutated while it \ 
is iterated.
- bpo-34824: Fix a possible null pointer dereference in Modules/_ssl.c. Patch by \ 
Zackery Spytz.
- bpo-1621: Do not assume signed integer overflow behavior (C undefined \ 
behavior) when performing set hash table resizing.

- bpo-35052: Fix xml.dom.minidom cloneNode() on a document with an entity: pass \ 
the correct arguments to the user data handler of an entity.
- bpo-35330: When a Mock instance was used to wrap an object, if side_effect is \ 
used in one of the mocks of it methods, don’t call the original implementation \ 
and return the result of using the side effect the same way that it is done with \ 
- bpo-34172: Revert the fix for this issue previously released in 3.6.7 pending \ 
further investigation: Fix a reference issue inside multiprocessing.Pool that \ 
caused the pool to remain alive if it was deleted without being closed or \ 
terminated explicitly.
- bpo-10496: posixpath.expanduser() now returns the input path unchanged if the \ 
HOME environment variable is not set and the current user has no home directory \ 
(if the current user identifier doesn’t exist in the password database). This \ 
change fix the site module if the current user doesn’t exist in the password \ 
database (if the user has no home directory).
- bpo-35310: Fix a bug in select.select() where, in some cases, the file \ 
descriptor sequences were returned unmodified after a signal interruption, even \ 
though the file descriptors might not be ready yet. select.select() will now \ 
always return empty lists if a timeout has occurred. Patch by Oran Avraham.
- bpo-35380: Enable TCP_NODELAY on Windows for proactor asyncio event loop.
- bpo-35371: Fixed possible crash in os.utime() on Windows when pass incorrect \ 
- bpo-27903: Fix ResourceWarning in platform.dist() on SuSE and Caldera \ 
OpenLinux. Patch by Ville Skyttä.
- bpo-28604: locale.localeconv() now sets temporarily the LC_CTYPE locale to the \ 
LC_MONETARY locale if the two locales are different and monetary strings are \ 
non-ASCII. This temporary change affects other threads.
- bpo-35277: Update ensurepip to install pip 18.1 and setuptools 40.6.2.
- bpo-35226: Recursively check arguments when testing for equality of \ 
unittest.mock.call objects and add note that tracking of parameters used to \ 
create ancestors of mocks in mock_calls is not possible.
- bpo-35189: Modify the following fnctl function to retry if interrupted by a \ 
signal (EINTR): flock, lockf, fnctl
- bpo-35062: Fix incorrect parsing of _io.IncrementalNewlineDecoder’s \ 
translate argument.
- bpo-35079: Improve difflib.SequenceManager.get_matching_blocks doc by adding \ 
‘non-overlapping’ and changing ‘!=’ to ‘<’.
- bpo-35017: socketserver.BaseServer.serve_forever() now exits immediately if \ 
it’s shutdown() method is called while it is polling for new events.
- bpo-31047: Fix ntpath.abspath regression where it didn’t remove a trailing \ 
separator on Windows. Patch by Tim Graham.
- bpo-34794: Fixed a leak in Tkinter when pass the Python wrapper around Tcl_Obj \ 
back to Tcl/Tk.
- bpo-35008: Fixed references leaks when call the __setstate__() method of \ 
xml.etree.ElementTree.Element in the C implementation for already initialized \ 
- bpo-23420: Verify the value for the parameter ‘-s’ of the cProfile CLI. \ 
Patch by Robert Kuska
- bpo-16965: The 2to3 execfile fixer now opens the file with mode 'rb'. Patch by \ 
Zackery Spytz.
- bpo-34966: pydoc now supports aliases not only to methods defined in the end \ 
class, but also to inherited methods. The docstring is not duplicated for \ 
- bpo-34941: Methods find(), findtext() and findall() of the Element class in \ 
the xml.etree.ElementTree module are now able to find children which are \ 
instances of Element subclasses.
- bpo-34936: Fix TclError in tkinter.Spinbox.selection_element(). Patch by \ 
Juliette Monsel.
- bpo-34900: Fixed unittest.TestCase.debug() when used to call test methods with \ 
subtests. Patch by Bruno Oliveira.
- bpo-34866: Adding max_num_fields to cgi.FieldStorage to make DOS attacks \ 
harder by limiting the number of MiniFieldStorage objects created by \ 
- bpo-34738: ZIP files created by distutils will now include entries for directories.
- bpo-31177: Fix bug that prevented using reset_mock on mock instances with \ 
deleted attributes
- bpo-34604: Fix possible mojibake in the error message of pwd.getpwnam and \ 
grp.getgrnam using string representation because of invisible characters or \ 
trailing whitespaces. Patch by William Grzybowski.
- bpo-34574: OrderedDict iterators are not exhausted during pickling anymore. \ 
Patch by Sergey Fedoseev.
- bpo-34052: sqlite3.Connection.create_aggregate(), \ 
sqlite3.Connection.create_function(), sqlite3.Connection.set_authorizer(), \ 
sqlite3.Connection.set_progress_handler() methods raises TypeError when \ 
unhashable objects are passed as callable. These methods now don’t pass such \ 
objects to SQLite API. Previous behavior could lead to segfaults. Patch by \ 
Sergey Fedoseev.
- bpo-29877: compileall: import ProcessPoolExecutor only when needed, preventing \ 
hangs on low resource platforms

python36: updated to 3.6.6

Version 3.6.6:

Core and Builtins
* Fix asynchronous generators to handle GeneratorExit in athrow() correctly
* Fixed reset of the SIGINT handler to SIG_DFL on interpreter shutdown even when \ 
there was a custom handler set previously.
* Fixed a leak when the garbage collector fails to add an object with the \ 
__del__ method or referenced by it into the gc.garbage list. PyGC_Collect() can \ 
now be called when an exception is set and preserves it.
* Fix signed/unsigned comparison warning in pyhash.c.
* Fix a leak in set_symmetric_difference().
* Fix unaligned accesses in siphash24().
* Fix potential memory leak in normalizestring().
* Improved error messages in ‘async with’ when __aenter__() or __aexit__() \ 
return non-awaitable object.
* Fix ma_version_tag in dict implementation is uninitialized when copying from \ 
key-sharing dict.
* Fixed jumping when the function contains an async for loop.
* Fix an unnecessary ifdef in the include of VersionHelpers.h in socketmodule on \ 
* Fix a crash in ctypes.cast() in case the type argument is a ctypes structured \ 
data type.

* Prevent site.main() exception if PYTHONSTARTUP is set.
* Datetime instance d with non-None tzinfo, but with d.tzinfo.utcoffset(d) \ 
returning None is now treated as naive by the astimezone() method.
* Avoid race condition with debug logging
* The concatenation (+) and repetition (*) sequence operations now raise \ 
TypeError instead of SystemError when performed on mmap.mmap objects.
* Fix gather to propagate cancellation of itself even with return_exceptions.
* Fix a race condition in SSLProtocol.connection_made() of asyncio.sslproto: \ 
start immediately the handshake instead of using call_soon(). Previously, \ 
data_received() could be called before the handshake started, causing the \ 
handshake to hang or fail.
* Fixed bug where calling write_eof() on a _SelectorSocketTransport after it’s \ 
already closed raises AttributeError.
* Fix Task.__repr__ crash with Cython’s bogus coroutines
* Fix RuntimeError after closing loop that used run_in_executor
* Use a better regex when breaking usage into wrappable parts. Avoids bogus \ 
assertion errors from custom metavar strings.
* Fixed a bug in the Python implementation of the JSON decoder that prevented \ 
the cache of parsed strings from clearing after finishing the decoding. Based on \ 
patch by c-fos.
* tempfile._candidate_tempdir_list should consider common TEMP locations
* Prevent uuid.get_node from using a DUID instead of a MAC on Windows.
* Fix race condition with ReadTransport.resume_reading in Windows proactor event \ 
* Minor fixes in typing module: add annotations to NamedTuple.__new__, pass \ 
*args and **kwds in Generic.__new__.
* Updated alias mapping with glibc 2.27 supported locales.
* Fix trailing quotation marks getting deleted when looking up byte/string \ 
literals on pydoc.

called with a single argument.
* Fix multiprocessing regression on newer glibcs
* Fix quoting of the Comment attribute of http.cookies.SimpleCookie.
* Upgrade bundled version of pip to 10.0.1.
* Fixed a crash in the parser module when converting an ST object to a tree of \ 
tuples or lists with line_info=False and col_info=True.
* Fix FD leak in _SelectorSocketTransport
* Fix display of <module> call in the html produced by cgitb.html().
* random.Random.choice() now raises IndexError for empty sequences consistently \ 
even when called from subclasses without a getrandbits() implementation.
* Update difflib.mdiff() for PEP 479. Convert an uncaught StopIteration in a \ 
generator into a return-statement.
* End framing at the end of C implementation of pickle.Pickler.dump().
* The urllib.robotparser’s __str__ representation now includes wildcard \ 
entries and the “Crawl-delay” and “Request-rate” fields.
* Allow ttk.Treeview.insert to insert iid that has a false boolean value. Note \ 
iid=0 and iid=False would be same.
* The ssl module now compiles with LibreSSL 2.7.1.
* Release the GIL during fstat() calls, avoiding hang of all threads when \ 
calling mmap.mmap(), os.urandom(), and random.seed().
* Fix a regression in ipaddress that result of hosts() is empty when the network \ 
is constructed by a tuple containing an integer mask and only 1 bit left for \ 
* Fix wrong redirection of a low descriptor (0 or 1) to stderr in subprocess if \ 
another low descriptor is closed.
* Fix output of cover files for trace module command-line tool. Previously \ 
emitted cover files only when --missing option was used.
* If nested log adapters are used, the inner process() methods are no longer omitted.
* Support arrays >=2GiB in ctypes.
* pydoc: the stop() method of the private ServerThread class now waits until \ 
DocServer.serve_until_quit() completes and then explicitly sets its docserver \ 
attribute to None to break a reference cycle.

Log message:
python36: updated to 3.6.5

Python 3.6.5:

* Minimal fix to prevent buffer overrun in os.symlink on Windows
* Regexes in difflib and poplib were vulnerable to catastrophic backtracking. \ 
These regexes formed potential DOS vectors (REDOS). They have been refactored. \ 
This resolves CVE-2018-1060 and CVE-2018-1061.

Core and Builtins
* Fixed jumping out of “with” block by setting f_lineno.
* Prevent jumps from ‘return’ and ‘exception’ trace events.
* Update Valgrind suppression list to account for the rename of \ 
Py_ADDRESS_IN_RANG to address_in_range.
* Pdb and other debuggers dependent on bdb.py will correctly step over (next \ 
command) native coroutines.
* Improve suggestion when the Python 2 form of print statement is either present \ 
on the same line as the header of a compound statement or else terminated by a \ 
semi-colon instead of a newline.
* Fix possible crashing in builtin Unicode decoders caused by write out-of- \ 
bound errors when using customized decode error handlers.
* Improved frozenset() hash to create more distinct hash values when faced with \ 
datasets containing many similar values.
* The __debug__ constant is now optimized out at compile time. This fixes also \ 
* sys.flags.hash_randomization is now properly set to 0 when hash randomization \ 
is turned off by PYTHONHASHSEED=0.
* The optimizer is now protected from spending much time doing complex \ 
calculations and consuming much memory for creating large constants in constant \ 
* repr() on a dict containing its own values() or items() no longer raises \ 
RecursionError; OrderedDict similarly. Instead, use ..., as for other recursive \ 
* Leading whitespace is now correctly ignored when generating suggestions for \ 
converting Py2 print statements to Py3 builtin print function calls.
* The repr of deeply nested dict now raises a RecursionError instead of crashing \ 
due to a stack overflow.

* lib2to3 now properly supports trailing commas after *args and **kwargs in \ 
function signatures.
* Avoid failing in multiprocessing.Process if the standard streams are closed or \ 
None at exit.
* Skip sending/receiving data after SSL transport closing.
* Fix ctypes pass-by-value for structs on 64-bit Cygwin/MinGW.
* Fix inspect.signature() for single-parameter partialmethods.
* Expose several missing constants in zlib and fix corresponding documentation.
* Fixed tarfile.itn handling of out-of-bounds float values.
* The ssl module now detects missing NPN support in LibreSSL.
* dbm.open() now encodes filename with the filesystem encoding rather than \ 
default encoding.
* In os.dup2, don’t check every call whether the dup3 syscall exists or not.
* Rewrite confusing message from setup.py upload from “No dist file created in \ 
earlier command” to the more helpful “Must create and upload files in one \ 
* In tkinter, after_cancel(None) now raises a ValueError instead of canceling \ 
the first scheduled function.
* Make sure sys.argv remains as a list when running trace.
* Fixed asyncio.Condition issue which silently ignored cancellation after \ 
notifying and cancelling a conditional lock.
* Fixed refleaks of __init__() methods in various modules. (Contributed by Oren \ 
* Fixed guessing quote and delimiter in csv.Sniffer.sniff() when only the last \ 
field is quoted.
* socket: Remove TCP_FASTOPEN, TCP_KEEPCNT flags on older version Windows during \ 
* Fix a rare but potential pre-exec child process deadlock in subprocess on \ 
POSIX systems when marking file descriptors inheritable on exec in the child \ 
process. This bug appears to have been introduced in 3.4.
* The ctypes module used to depend on indirect linking for dlopen. The shared \ 
extension is now explicitly linked against libdl on platforms with dl.
* Fixed asyncio.Lock() safety issue which allowed acquiring and locking the same \ 
lock multiple times, without it being free.
* Do not include name field in SMTP envelope from address.
* Fix email address header parsing error when the username is an empty quoted string.
* distutils’ upload command no longer corrupts tar files ending with a CR \ 
byte, and no longer tries to convert CR to CRLF in any of the upload text \ 
* uuid.uuid1 no longer raises an exception if a 64-bit hardware address is \ 
* Fix the error handling in Aifc_read.initfp() when the SSND chunk is not found.
* On FreeBSD and Solaris, os.strerror() now always decode the byte string from \ 
the current locale encoding, rather than using ASCII/surrogateescape in some \ 
* The nis module is now compatible with new libnsl and headers location.
* Improve ABCMeta._dump_registry() output readability
* glibc has removed Sun RPC. Use replacement libtirpc headers and library in nis \ 
* Ensure that truncate() preserves the file position (as reported by tell()) \ 
after writes longer than the buffer size.
* Don’t unsubscribe signals in asyncio UNIX event loop on interpreter shutdown.
* The SSL module no longer sends IP addresses in SNI TLS extension on platforms \ 
with OpenSSL 1.0.2+ or inet_pton.
* urllib.parse.urlsplit() does not convert zone-id (scope) to lower case for \ 
scoped IPv6 addresses in hostnames now.
* Fix bdist_wininst of distutils for CRT v142: it binary compatible with CRT v140.
* A single empty field is now always quoted when written into a CSV file. This \ 
allows to distinguish an empty row from a row consisting of a single empty \ 
* Raise NotImplementedError instead of SystemError on platforms where chmod(..., \ 
follow_symlinks=False) is not supported.
* The getnode() ip getter now uses ‘ip link’ instead of ‘ip link list’.
* Ensure TCP_NODELAY is set on Linux. Tests by Victor Stinner.
* The locale.localeconv() function now sets temporarily the LC_CTYPE locale to \ 
the LC_NUMERIC locale to decode decimal_point and thousands_sep byte strings if \ 
they are non-ASCII or longer than 1 byte, and the LC_NUMERIC locale is different \ 
than the LC_CTYPE locale. This temporary change affects other threads.
Same change for the str.format() method when formatting a number (int, float, \ 
float and subclasses) with the n type (ex: '{:n}'.format(1234)).
* Importing native path module (posixpath, ntpath) now works even if the os \ 
module still is not imported.

Core and Builtins
- bpo-32176: co_flags.CO_NOFREE is now always set correctly by the code
  object constructor based on freevars and cellvars, rather than needing to
  be set correctly by the caller. This ensures it will be cleared
  automatically when additional cell references are injected into a modified
  code object and function.

- bpo-31949: Fixed several issues in printing tracebacks

  * Setting sys.tracebacklimit to 0 or less now suppresses printing tracebacks.
  * Setting sys.tracebacklimit to None now causes using the default limit.

    the limit LONG_MAX rather than the default limit.
  * Fixed integer overflows in the case of more than 2**31 traceback items on
  * Fixed output errors handling.

- bpo-30696: Fix the interactive interpreter looping endlessly when no

  exit, even if an exception in the chain is unhashable or compares equal to
  later ones. Patch by Zane Bitter.

- bpo-31786: Fix timeout rounding in the select module to round correctly
  negative timeouts between -1.0 and 0.0. The functions now block waiting

  Patch by Pablo Galindo.

- bpo-31642: Restored blocking "from package import module" by setting
  sys.modules["package.module"] to None.

- bpo-31626: Fixed a bug in debug memory allocator.  There was a write to

  creation fails due to a metaclass with a bad __prepare__() method.
  Patch by Oren Milman.

- bpo-31566: Fix an assertion failure in _warnings.warn() in case of a bad
  __name__ global. Patch by Oren Milman.

- bpo-31505: Fix an assertion failure in json, in case
  _json.make_encoder() received a bad encoder() argument. Patch by Oren

- bpo-31492: Fix assertion failures in case of failing to import from a
  module with a bad __name__ attribute, and in case of failing to access
  an attribute of such a module. Patch by Oren Milman.

- bpo-31490: Fix an assertion failure in ctypes class definition, in case
  the class has an attribute whose name is specified in _anonymous_ but
  not in _fields_. Patch by Oren Milman.

- bpo-31478: Fix an assertion failure in _random.Random.seed() in case the
  argument has a bad __abs__() method. Patch by Oren Milman.

- bpo-31315: Fix an assertion failure in imp.create_dynamic(), when
  spec.name is not a string. Patch by Oren Milman.

- bpo-31311: Fix a crash in the __setstate__() method of
  ctypes._CData, in case of a bad __dict__. Patch by Oren Milman.

- bpo-31293: Fix crashes in true division and multiplication of a timedelta
  object by a float with a bad as_integer_ratio() method. Patch by Oren

- bpo-31285: Fix an assertion failure in warnings.warn_explicit, when the
  return value of the received loader's get_source() has a bad splitlines()
  method. Patch by Oren Milman.

- bpo-30817: PyErr_PrintEx() clears now the ignored exception that may be
  raised by _PySys_SetObjectId(), for example when no memory.

- bpo-28556: Two minor fixes for typing module: allow shallow copying
  instances of generic classes, improve interaction of __init_subclass__
  with generics.

  None when the value of property is VT_EMPTY.  Initial patch by
  Mark Mc Mahon.

- bpo-31325: Fix wrong usage of :func:collections.namedtuple in the
  :meth:RobotFileParser.parse() <urllib.robotparser.RobotFileParser.parse>

- bpo-12382: :func:msilib.OpenDatabase now raises a better exception
  message when it couldn't open or create an MSI file.  Initial patch by
  William Tisäter.

- bpo-32110: codecs.StreamReader.read(n) now returns not more than *n*
  characters/bytes for non-negative *n*. This makes it compatible with
  read() methods of other file-like objects.

- bpo-32072: Fixed issues with binary plists:

  * Fixed saving bytearrays.
