./time/py-dateutil, Extensions to the standard datetime module

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

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 2.6.1, Package name: py27-dateutil-2.6.1, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

The `dateutil` module provides powerful extensions to the standard `datetime`
module, available in Python.


* Computing of relative deltas (next month, next year, next monday, last week
of month, etc);
* Computing of relative deltas between two given date and/or datetime objects;
* Computing of dates based on very flexible recurrence rules, using a superset
of the iCalendar specification. Parsing of RFC strings is supported as well.
* Generic parsing of dates in almost any string format;
* Timezone (tzinfo) implementations for tzfile(5) format files
(/etc/localtime, /usr/share/zoneinfo, etc), TZ environment string (in all
known formats), iCalendar format files, given ranges (with help from
relative deltas), local machine timezone, fixed offset timezone, UTC
timezone, and Windows registry-based time zones.
* Internal up-to-date world timezone information based on Olson's database.
* Computing of Easter Sunday dates for any given year, using Western, Orthodox
or Julian algorithms;
* More than 400 test cases.

Log message:
Version 2.6.0:

* Added PEP-495-compatible methods to address ambiguous and imaginary dates in
time zones in a backwards-compatible way. Ambiguous dates and times can now
be safely represented by all dateutil time zones.

* Added new methods for working with ambiguous and imaginary dates to the tz
module. datetime_ambiguous() determines if a datetime is ambiguous for a given
zone and datetime_exists() determines if a datetime exists in a given zone.
This works for all fold-aware datetimes, not just those provided by dateutil.

* Fixed an issue where dst() in Portugal in 1996 was returning the wrong value
in tz.tzfile objects

* Fixed an issue where zoneinfo.ZoneInfoFile errors were not being properly

* Refactored tzwin and tzrange as a subclass of a common class, tzrangebase, as
there was substantial overlapping functionality. As part of this change,
tzrange and tzstr now expose a transitions() function, which returns the
DST on and off transitions for a given year.

* Deprecated zoneinfo.gettz() due to confusion with tz.gettz(), in favor of
get() method of zoneinfo.ZoneInfoFile objects.

* For non-character, non-stream arguments, parser.parse now raises TypeError
instead of AttributeError.

* Fixed an issue where tzfile objects were not properly handling dst() and
tzname() when attached to datetime.time objects.

* /usr/share/lib/zoneinfo was added to TZPATHS for compatibility with Solaris

* tzoffset and tzrange objects now accept either a number of seconds or a
datetime.timedelta() object wherever previously only a number of seconds was

* datetime.timedelta objects can now be added to relativedelta objects.

* Refactored relativedelta.weekday and rrule.weekday into a common base class
to reduce code duplication.

update to python-dateutil-2.5.3

Version 2.5.3

- Fixed parser bug where unambiguous datetimes fail to parse when dayfirst is
  set to true. (gh issue #233, pr #234)
- Bug in zoneinfo file on platforms such as Google App Engine which do not
  do not allow importing of subprocess.check_call was reported and fixed by
  @savraj (gh issue #239, gh pr #240)
- Fixed incorrect version in documentation (gh issue #235, pr #243)

Version 2.5.2
- Updated zoneinfo to 2016c
- Fixed parser bug where yearfirst and dayfirst parameters were not being
  respected when no separator was present. (gh issue #81 and #217, pr #229)

Version 2.5.1
- Updated zoneinfo to 2016b
- Changed MANIFEST.in to explicitly include test suite in source distributions,
  with help from @koobs (gh issue #193, pr #194, #201, #221)
- Explicitly set all line-endings to LF, except for the NEWS file, on a
  per-repository basis (gh pr #218)
- Fixed an issue with improper caching behavior in rruleset objects (gh issue
  #104, pr #207)
- Changed to an explicit error when rrulestr strings contain a missing BYDAY
  (gh issue #162, pr #211)
- tzfile now correctly handles files containing leapcnt (although the leapcnt
  information is not actually used). Contributed by @hjoukl (gh issue #146, pr
- Fixed recursive import issue with tz module (gh pr #204)
- Added compatibility between tzwin objects and datetime.time objects (gh issue
  #216, gh pr #219)
- Refactored monolithic test suite by module (gh issue #61, pr #200 and #206)
- Improved test coverage in the relativedelta module (gh pr #215)
- Adjusted documentation to reflect possibly counter-intuitive properties of
  RFC-5545-compliant rrules, and other documentation improvements in the rrule
  module (gh issue #105, gh issue #149 - pointer to the solution by @phep,
  pr #213).

Version 2.5.0
- Updated zoneinfo to 2016a
- zoneinfo_metadata file version increased to 2.0 - the updated updatezinfo.py
  script will work with older zoneinfo_metadata.json files, but new metadata
  files will not work with older updatezinfo.py versions. Additionally, we have
  started hosting our own mirror of the Olson databases on a github pages
  site (https://dateutil.github.io/tzdata/) (gh pr #183)
- dateutil zoneinfo tarballs now contain the full zoneinfo_metadata file used
  to generate them. (gh issue #27, gh pr #85)
- relativedelta can now be safely subclassed without derived objects reverting
  to base relativedelta objects as a result of arithmetic operations.
  (lp:1010199, gh issue #44, pr #49)
- relativedelta 'weeks' parameter can now be set and retrieved as a property of
  relativedelta instances. (lp: 727525, gh issue #45, pr #49)
- relativedelta now explicitly supports fractional relative weeks, days, hours,
  minutes and seconds. Fractional values in absolute parameters (year, day, etc)
  are now deprecated. (gh issue #40, pr #190)
- relativedelta objects previously did not use microseconds to determine of two
  relativedelta objects were equal. This oversight has been corrected.
  Contributed by @elprans (gh pr #113)
- rrule now has an xafter() method for retrieving multiple recurrences after a
  specified date. (gh pr #38)
- str(rrule) now returns an RFC2445-compliant rrule string, contributed by
  @schinckel and @armicron (lp:1406305, gh issue #47, prs #50, #62 and #160)
- rrule performance under certain conditions has been significantly improved
  thanks to a patch contributed by @dekoza, based on an article by Brian Beck
  (@exogen) (gh pr #136)
- The use of both the 'until' and 'count' parameters is now deprecated as
  inconsistent with RFC2445 (gh pr #62, #185)
- Parsing an empty string will now raise a ValueError, rather than returning the
  datetime passed to the 'default' parameter. (gh issue #78, pr #187)
- tzwinlocal objects now have a meaningful repr() and str() implementation
  (gh issue #148, prs #184 and #186)
- Added equality logic for tzwin and tzwinlocal objects. (gh issue #151,
  pr #180, #184)
- Added some flexibility in subclassing timelex, and switched the default
  behavior over to using string methods rather than comparing against a fixed
  list. (gh pr #122, #139)
- An issue causing tzstr() to crash on Python 2.x was fixed. (lp: 1331576,
  gh issue #51, pr #55)
- An issue with string encoding causing exceptions under certain circumstances
  when tzname() is called was fixed. (gh issue #60, #74, pr #75)
- Parser issue where calling parse() on dates with no day specified when the
  day of the month in the default datetime (which is "today" if \ 
unspecified) is
  greater than the number of days in the parsed month was fixed (this issue
  tended to crop up between the 29th and 31st of the month, for obvious reasons)
  (canonical gh issue #25, pr #30, #191)
- Fixed parser issue causing fuzzy_with_tokens to raise an unexpected exception
  in certain circumstances. Contributed by @MichaelAquilina (gh pr #91)
- Fixed parser issue where years > 100 AD were incorrectly parsed. Contributed
  by @Bachmann1234 (gh pr #130)
- Fixed parser issue where commas were not a valid separator between seconds
  and microseconds, preventing parsing of ISO 8601 dates. Contributed by
  @ryanss (gh issue #28, pr #106)
- Fixed issue with tzwin encoding in locales with non-Latin alphabets
  (gh issue #92, pr #98)
- Fixed an issue where tzwin was not being properly imported on Windows.
  Contributed by @labrys. (gh pr #134)
- Fixed a problem causing issues importing zoneinfo in certain circumstances.
  Issue and solution contributed by @alexxv (gh issue #97, pr #99)
- Fixed an issue where dateutil timezones were not compatible with basic time
  objects. One of many, many timezone related issues contributed and tested by
  @labrys. (gh issue #132, pr #181)
- Fixed issue where tzwinlocal had an invalid utcoffset. (gh issue #135,
  pr #141, #142)
- Fixed issue with tzwin and tzwinlocal where DST transitions were incorrectly
  parsed from the registry. (gh issue #143, pr #178)
- updatezinfo.py no longer suppresses certain OSErrors. Contributed by @bjamesv
  (gh pr #164)
- An issue that arose when timezone locale changes during runtime has been
  fixed by @carlosxl and @mjschultz (gh issue #100, prs #107, #109)
- Python 3.5 was added to the supported platforms in the metadata (@tacaswell
  gh pr #159) and the test suites (@moreati gh pr #117).
- An issue with tox failing without unittest2 installed in Python 2.6 was fixed
  by @moreati (gh pr #115)
- Several deprecated functions were replaced in the tests by @moreati
  (gh pr #116)
- Improved the logic in Travis and Appveyor to alleviate issues where builds
  were failing due to connection issues when downloading the IANA timezone
  files. In addition to adding our own mirror for the files (gh pr #183), the
  download is now retried a number of times (with a delay) (gh pr #177)
- Many failing doctests were fixed by @moreati. (gh pr #120)
- Many fixes to the documentation (gh pr #103, gh pr #87 from @radarhere,
  gh pr #154 from @gpoesia, gh pr #156 from @awsum, gh pr #168 from @ja8zyjits)
- Added a code coverage tool to the CI to help improve the library. (gh pr #182)
- We now have a mailing list - dateutil@python.org, graciously hosted by

Version 2.4.2
- Updated zoneinfo to 2015b.
- Fixed issue with parsing of tzstr on Python 2.7.x; tzstr will now be decoded
  if not a unicode type. gh #51 (lp:1331576), gh pr #55.
- Fix a parser issue where AM and PM tokens were showing up in fuzzy date
  stamps, triggering inappropriate errors. gh #56 (lp: 1428895), gh pr #63.

  with the last 2-digit number in the string. (gh pr #32, issue #31)
- Fix and add test for Python 2.x compatibility with boolean checking of
  relativedelta objects. Implemented by @nimasmi (gh pr #43) and Cédric Krier
  (lp: 1035038)
- Replaced parse() calls with explicit datetime objects in unit tests unrelated
  to parser. (gh pr #36)
