ARA 0.16.6 is a maintenance release for users that are not yet using ARA 1.x.

Changes since 0.16.5:

  • Fixed web application crash due to encoding/decoding of binary non-ascii content in task results
  • The sqlite middleware was adapted to support running under gunicorn as well as mod_wsgi
  • python -m ara.setup.env now returns commands that use bash expansion to take into account existing environment variables

Eventual end of life for ARA 0.x

All new feature and development effort for more than a year has been spent on the master branch of ARA which is the basis of version 1.x releases.

In fact, 0.x and 1.x are vastly different code bases at this point. They are diverging by more than 400 commits and 1.x features a completely re-written backend which includes many new features, notably a new REST API.

Users are encouraged to try the latest release of ARA, currently 1.2.0, and create issues on GitHub if they encounter any problems or missing features.

ARA 0.16.6 could be the last release of ARA 0.x if no major issues are found.
