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

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

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 3.6.4, Package name: python36-3.6.4, 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 3.6.4

Python 3.6.4 release candidate 1:
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.
  * Setting sys.tracebacklimit to an integer larger than LONG_MAX now means using
    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

- bpo-20047: Bytearray methods partition() and rpartition() now accept only
  bytes-like objects as separator, as documented.  In particular they now
  raise TypeError rather of returning a bogus result when an integer is
  passed as a separator.

- bpo-31852: Fix a segmentation fault caused by a combination of the async
  soft keyword and continuation lines.

- bpo-21720: BytesWarning no longer emitted when the *fromlist* argument of
  __import__() or the __all__ attribute of the module contain bytes

- bpo-31825: Fixed OverflowError in the 'unicode-escape' codec and in
  codecs.escape_decode() when decode an escaped non-ascii byte.

- bpo-28603: Print the full context/cause chain of exceptions on interpreter
  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
  for events as expected. Previously, the call was incorrectly non-blocking.
  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
  freed memory after shrinking a memory block.

- bpo-31619: Fixed a ValueError when convert a string with large number of
  underscores to integer with binary base.

- bpo-31592: Fixed an assertion failure in Python parser in case of a bad
  unicodedata.normalize(). Patch by Oren Milman.

- bpo-31588: Raise a TypeError with a helpful error message when class
  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.

- bpo-27240: The header folding algorithm for the new email policies has
  been rewritten, which also fixes bpo-30788, bpo-31831, and bpo-32182.  In
  particular, RFC2231 folding is now done correctly.

- bpo-32186: io.FileIO.readall() and io.FileIO.read() now release the GIL
  when getting the file size. Fixed hang of all threads with inaccessible
  NFS server. Patch by Nir Soffer.

- bpo-12239: Make :meth:msilib.SummaryInformation.GetProperty return
  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 Tis├Ąter.

- 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.
  * Identical objects will be saved only once.
  * Equal references will be load as identical objects.
  * Added support for saving and loading recursive data structures.

- bpo-32034: Make asyncio.IncompleteReadError and LimitOverrunError

- bpo-32015: Fixed the looping of asyncio in the case of reconnection the
  socket during waiting async read/write from/to the socket.

  code. These files can be produced in Python 2.7.

- bpo-27666: Fixed stack corruption in curses.box() and curses.ungetmouse()
  when the size of types chtype or mmask_t is less than the size of C long.

- bpo-31897: plistlib now catches more errors when read binary plists and

python36: Disable libpython3.so.

This is a useless library (we've built it incorrectly for a long time so it
contains no valid symbols) that only creates CONFLICTS with other python3
packages.  No objection on tech-pkg.  Bump PKGREVISION.
