PyUp Safety actively tracks 323,951 Python packages for vulnerabilities and notifies you when to upgrade.



- Added asynchronous ``Path`` class
  - Added the ``wrap_file()`` function for wrapping existing files as asynchronous file objects
  - Relaxed the type of the ``path`` initializer argument to ``FileReadStream`` and
  ``FileWriteStream`` so they accept any path-like object (including the new asynchronous ``Path``
  - Dropped unnecessary dependency on the ``async_generator`` library
  - Changed the generics in ``AsyncFile`` so that the methods correctly return either ``str`` or
  ``bytes`` based on the argument to ``open_file()``
  - Fixed an asyncio bug where under certain circumstances, a stopping worker thread would still
  accept new assignments, leading to a hang


- Fixed idle thread pruning on asyncio sometimes causing an expired worker thread to be assigned a


- Added Python 3.10 compatibility
  - Added the ability to close memory object streams synchronously (including support for use as a
  synchronous context manager)
  - Changed the default value of the ``use_uvloop`` asyncio backend option to ``False`` to prevent
  unsafe event loop policy changes in different threads
  - Fixed ``to_thread.run_sync()`` hanging on the second call on asyncio when used with
  - Fixed ``to_thread.run_sync()`` prematurely marking a worker thread inactive when a task await on
  the result is cancelled
  - Fixed ``ResourceWarning`` about an unclosed socket when UNIX socket connect fails on asyncio
  - Fixed the type annotation of ``open_signal_receiver()`` as a synchronous context manager
  - Fixed the type annotation of ``DeprecatedAwaitable(|List|Float).__await__`` to match the
  ``typing.Awaitable`` protocol


- Added ``env`` and ``cwd`` keyword arguments to ``run_process()`` and ``open_process``.
  - Added support for mutation of ``CancelScope.shield`` (PR by John Belmonte)
  - Added the ``sleep_forever()`` and ``sleep_until()`` functions
  - Changed asyncio task groups so that if the host and child tasks have only raised
  ``CancelledErrors``, just one ``CancelledError`` will now be raised instead of an
  ``ExceptionGroup``, allowing asyncio to ignore it when it propagates out of the task
  - Changed task names to be converted to ``str`` early on asyncio (PR by Thomas Grainger)
  - Fixed ``sniffio._impl.AsyncLibraryNotFoundError: unknown async library, or not in async context``
  on asyncio and Python 3.6 when ``to_thread.run_sync()`` is used from
  - Fixed odd ``ExceptionGroup: 0 exceptions were raised in the task group`` appearing under certain
  circumstances on asyncio
  - Fixed ``wait_all_tasks_blocked()`` returning prematurely on asyncio when a previously blocked
  task is cancelled (PR by Thomas Grainger)
  - Fixed declared return type of ``TaskGroup.start()`` (it was declared as ``None``, but anything
  can be returned from it)
  - Fixed ``TextStream.extra_attributes`` raising ``AttributeError`` (PR by Thomas Grainger)
  - Fixed ``await maybe_async(current_task())`` returning ``None`` (PR by Thomas Grainger)
  - Fixed: ``pickle.dumps(current_task())`` now correctly raises ``TypeError`` instead of pickling to
  ``None`` (PR by Thomas Grainger)
  - Fixed return type annotation of ``Event.wait()`` (``bool`` → ``None``) (PR by Thomas Grainger)
  - Fixed return type annotation of ``RunVar.get()`` to return either the type of the default value
  or the type of the contained value (PR by Thomas Grainger)
  - Fixed a deprecation warning message to refer to ``maybe_async()`` and not ``maybe_awaitable()``
  (PR by Thomas Grainger)
  - Filled in argument and return types for all functions and methods previously missing them
  (PR by Thomas Grainger)


- Fixed ``to_thread.run_sync()`` raising ``RuntimeError`` on asyncio when no "root" task could be
  found for setting up a cleanup callback. This was a problem at least on Tornado and possibly also
  Twisted in asyncio compatibility mode. The life of worker threads is now bound to the the host
  task of the topmost cancel scope hierarchy starting from the current one, or if no cancel scope
  is active, the current task.


- Curio support has been dropped (see the :doc:`FAQ <faq>` as for why)
  - API changes:
  * **BACKWARDS INCOMPATIBLE** Submodules under ```` have been made private (use only
  ```` from now on).
  * **BACKWARDS INCOMPATIBLE** The following method was previously a coroutine method and has been
  converted into a synchronous one:
  * ``MemoryObjectReceiveStream.receive_nowait()``
  * The following functions and methods are no longer asynchronous but can still be awaited on
  (doing so will emit a deprecation warning):
  * ``current_time()``
  * ``current_effective_deadline()``
  * ``get_current_task()``
  * ``get_running_tasks()``
  * ``CancelScope.cancel()``
  * ``CapacityLimiter.acquire_nowait()``
  * ``CapacityLimiter.acquire_on_behalf_of_nowait()``
  * ``Condition.release()``
  * ``Event.set()``
  * ``Lock.release()``
  * ``MemoryObjectSendStream.send_nowait()``
  * ``Semaphore.release()``
  * The following functions now return synchronous context managers instead of asynchronous
  context managers (and emit deprecation warnings if used as async context managers):
  * ``fail_after()``
  * ``move_on_after()``
  * ``open_cancel_scope()`` (now just ``CancelScope()``; see below)
  * ``open_signal_receiver()``
  * The following functions and methods have been renamed/moved (will now emit deprecation
  warnings when you use them by their old names):
  * ``create_blocking_portal()`` → ``anyio.from_thread.BlockingPortal()``
  * ``create_capacity_limiter()`` → ``anyio.CapacityLimiter()``
  * ``create_event()`` → ``anyio.Event()``
  * ``create_lock()`` → ``anyio.Lock()``
  * ``create_condition()`` → ``anyio.Condition()``
  * ``create_semaphore()`` → ``anyio.Semaphore()``
  * ``current_default_worker_thread_limiter()`` →
  * ``open_cancel_scope()`` → ``anyio.CancelScope()``
  * ``run_sync_in_worker_thread()`` → ``anyio.to_thread.run_sync()``
  * ``run_async_from_thread()`` → ````
  * ``run_sync_from_thread()`` → ``anyio.from_thread.run_sync()``
  * ``BlockingPortal.spawn_task`` → ``BlockingPortal.start_task_soon``
  * ``CapacityLimiter.set_total_tokens()`` → ``limiter.total_tokens = ...``
  * ``TaskGroup.spawn()`` → ``TaskGroup.start_soon()``
  * **BACKWARDS INCOMPATIBLE** ``start_blocking_portal()`` must now be used as a context manager
  (it no longer returns a BlockingPortal, but a context manager that yields one)
  * **BACKWARDS INCOMPATIBLE** The ``BlockingPortal.stop_from_external_thread()`` method
  (use ```` instead now)
  * **BACKWARDS INCOMPATIBLE** The ``SocketStream`` and ``SocketListener`` classes were made
  * Made all non-frozen dataclasses hashable with ``eq=False``
  * Removed ``__slots__`` from ``BlockingPortal``
  See the :doc:`migration documentation <migration>` for instructions on how to deal with these
  - Improvements to running synchronous code:
  * Added the ``run_sync_from_thread()`` function
  * Added the ``run_sync_in_process()`` function for running code in worker processes
  (big thanks to Richard Sheridan for his help on this one!)
  - Improvements to sockets and streaming:
  * Added the ``UNIXSocketStream`` class which is capable of sending and receiving file descriptors
  * Added the ``FileReadStream`` and ``FileWriteStream`` classes
  * ``create_unix_listener()`` now removes any existing socket at the given path before proceeding
  (instead of raising ``OSError: Address already in use``)
  - Improvements to task groups and cancellation:
  * Added the ``TaskGroup.start()`` method and a corresponding ``BlockingPortal.start_task()``
  * Added the ``name`` argument to ``BlockingPortal.start_task_soon()``
  (renamed from ``BlockingPortal.spawn_task()``)
  * Changed ``CancelScope.deadline`` to be writable
  * Added the following functions in the ``anyio.lowlevel`` module:
  * ``checkpoint()``
  * ``checkpoint_if_cancelled()``
  * ``cancel_shielded_checkpoint()``
  - Improvements and changes to synchronization primitives:
  * Added the ``Lock.acquire_nowait()``, ``Condition.acquire_nowait()`` and
  ``Semaphore.acquire_nowait()`` methods
  * Added the ``statistics()`` method to ``Event``, ``Lock``, ``Condition``, ``Semaphore``,
  ``CapacityLimiter``, ``MemoryObjectReceiveStream`` and ``MemoryObjectSendStream``
  * ``Lock`` and ``Condition`` can now only be released by the task that acquired them.
  This behavior is now consistent on all backends whereas previously only Trio enforced this.
  * The ``CapacityLimiter.total_tokens`` property is now writable and
  ``CapacityLimiter.set_total_tokens()`` has been deprecated
  * Added the ``max_value`` property to ``Semaphore``
  - Asyncio specific improvements (big thanks to Thomas Grainger for his effort on most of these!):
  * Cancel scopes are now properly enforced with native asyncio coroutine functions (without
  any explicit AnyIO checkpoints)
  * Changed the asyncio ``CancelScope`` to raise a ``RuntimeError`` if a cancel scope is being
  exited before it was even entered
  * Changed the asyncio test runner to capture unhandled exceptions from asynchronous callbacks and
  unbound native tasks which are then raised after the test function (or async fixture setup or
  teardown) completes
  * Changed the asyncio ``TaskGroup.start_soon()`` (formerly ``spawn()``) method to call the target
  function immediately before starting the task, for consistency across backends
  * Changed the asyncio ``TaskGroup.start_soon()`` (formerly ``spawn()``) method to avoid the use
  of a coroutine wrapper on Python 3.8+ and added a hint for hiding the wrapper in tracebacks on
  earlier Pythons (supported by Pytest, Sentry etc.)
  * Changed the default thread limiter on asyncio to use a ``RunVar`` so it is  scoped to the
  current event loop, thus avoiding potential conflict among multiple running event loops
  * Thread pooling is now used on asyncio with ``run_sync_in_worker_thread()``
  * Fixed ``current_effective_deadline()`` raising ``KeyError`` on asyncio when no cancel scope is
  - Added the ``RunVar`` class for scoping variables to the running event loop

  - Fixed ``TLSStream.send_eof()`` raising ``ValueError`` instead of the expected
  - Fixed ``open_signal_receiver()`` on asyncio and curio hanging if the cancel scope was cancelled
  before the function could run
  - Fixed Trio test runner causing unwarranted test errors on ``BaseException``
  (PR by Matthias Urlichs)
  - Fixed formatted output of ``ExceptionGroup`` containing too many newlines


- Added the ``spawn_task()`` and ``wrap_async_context_manager()`` methods to ``BlockingPortal``
  - Added the ``handshake_timeout`` and ``error_handler`` parameters to ``TLSListener``
  - Fixed ``Event`` objects on the trio backend not inheriting from ````
  - Fixed ``run_sync_in_worker_thread()`` raising ``UnboundLocalError`` on asyncio when cancelled
  - Fixed ``send()`` on socket streams not raising any exception on asyncio, and an unwrapped
  ``BrokenPipeError`` on trio and curio when the peer has disconnected
  - Fixed ``MemoryObjectSendStream.send()`` raising ``BrokenResourceError`` when the last receiver is
  closed right after receiving the item
  - Fixed ``ValueError: Invalid file descriptor: -1`` when closing a ``SocketListener`` on asyncio


- Fixed one more case of
  ``AttributeError: 'async_generator_asend' object has no attribute 'cr_await'`` on asyncio


- Fixed broken ``MultiListener.extra()`` (PR by daa)
  - Fixed ``TLSStream`` returning an empty bytes object instead of raising ``EndOfStream`` when
  trying to receive from the stream after a closing handshake
  - Fixed ``AttributeError`` when cancelling a task group's scope inside an async test fixture on
  - Fixed ``wait_all_tasks_blocked()`` raising ``AttributeError`` on asyncio if a native task is
  waiting on an async generator's ``asend()`` method


- General new features:
  - Added support for subprocesses
  - Added support for "blocking portals" which allow running functions in the event loop thread
  from external threads
  - Added the ``anyio.aclose_forcefully()`` function for closing asynchronous resources as quickly
  as possible
  - General changes/fixes:
  - **BACKWARDS INCOMPATIBLE** Some functions have been renamed or removed (see further below for
  socket/fileio API changes):
  - ``finalize()`` → (removed; use ``contextlib.aclosing()`` instead)
  - ``receive_signals()`` → ``open_signal_receiver()``
  - ``run_in_thread()`` → ``run_sync_in_worker_thread()``
  - ``current_default_thread_limiter()`` → ``current_default_worker_thread_limiter()``
  - ``ResourceBusyError`` → ``BusyResourceError``
  - **BACKWARDS INCOMPATIBLE** Exception classes were moved to the top level package
  - Dropped support for Python 3.5
  - Bumped minimum versions of trio and curio to v0.16 and v1.4, respectively
  - Changed the ``repr()`` of ``ExceptionGroup`` to match trio's ``MultiError``
  - Backend specific changes and fixes:
  - ``asyncio``: Added support for ``ProactorEventLoop``. This allows asyncio applications to use
  AnyIO on Windows even without using AnyIO as the entry point.
  - ``asyncio``: The asyncio backend now uses ```` behind the scenes which properly
  shuts down async generators and cancels any leftover native tasks
  - ``curio``: Worked around the limitation where a task can only be cancelled twice (any
  cancellations beyond that were ignored)
  - ``asyncio`` + ``curio``: a cancellation check now calls ``sleep(0)``, allowing the scheduler to
  switch to a different task
  - ``asyncio`` + ``curio``: Host name resolution now uses `IDNA 2008`_ (with UTS 46 compatibility
  mapping, just like trio)
  - ``asyncio`` + ``curio``: Fixed a bug where a task group would abandon its subtasks if its own
  cancel scope was cancelled while it was waiting for subtasks to finish
  - ``asyncio`` + ``curio``: Fixed recursive tracebacks when a single exception from an inner task
  group is reraised in an outer task group
  - Socket/stream changes:
  - **BACKWARDS INCOMPATIBLE** The stream class structure was completely overhauled. There are now
  separate abstract base classes for receive and send streams, byte streams and reliable and
  unreliable object streams. Stream wrappers are much better supported by this new ABC structure
  and a new "typed extra attribute" system that lets you query the wrapper chain for the
  attributes you want via ``.extra(...)``.
  - **BACKWARDS INCOMPATIBLE** Socket server functionality has been refactored into a
  network-agnostic listener system
  - **BACKWARDS INCOMPATIBLE** TLS functionality has been split off from ``SocketStream`` and can
  now work over any bidirectional bytes-based stream – you can now establish a TLS encrypted
  communications pathway over UNIX sockets or even memory object streams. The ``TLSRequired``
  exception has also been removed as it is no longer necessary.
  - **BACKWARDS INCOMPATIBLE** Buffering functionality (``receive_until()`` and
  ``receive_exactly()``) was split off from ``SocketStream`` into a stream wrapper class
  - **BACKWARDS INCOMPATIBLE** IPv6 addresses are now reported as 2-tuples. If original 4-tuple
  form contains a nonzero scope ID, it is appended to the address with ``%`` as the separator.
  - **BACKWARDS INCOMPATIBLE** Byte streams (including socket streams) now raise ``EndOfStream``
  instead of returning an empty bytes object when the stream has been closed from the other end
  - **BACKWARDS INCOMPATIBLE** The socket API has changes:
  - ``create_tcp_server()`` → ``create_tcp_listener()``
  - ``create_unix_server()`` → ``create_unix_listener()``
  - ``create_udp_socket()`` had some of its parameters changed:
  - ``interface`` → ``local_address``
  - ``port`` → ``local_port``
  - ``reuse_address`` was replaced with ``reuse_port`` (and sets ``SO_REUSEPORT`` instead of
  - ``connect_tcp()`` had some of its parameters changed:
  - ``address`` → ``remote_address``
  - ``port`` → ``remote_port``
  - ``bind_host`` → ``local_address``
  - ``bind_port`` → (removed)
  - ``autostart_tls`` → ``tls``
  - ``tls_hostname`` (new parameter, when you want to match the certificate against against
  something else than ``remote_address``)
  - ``connect_tcp()`` now returns a ``TLSStream`` if TLS was enabled
  - ``notify_socket_closing()`` was removed, as it is no longer used by AnyIO
  - ``SocketStream`` has changes to its methods and attributes:
  - ``address`` → ``.extra(SocketAttribute.local_address)``
  - ``alpn_protocol`` → ``.extra(TLSAttribute.alpn_protocol)``
  - ``close()`` → ``aclose()``
  - ``get_channel_binding`` → ``.extra(TLSAttribute.channel_binding_tls_unique)``
  - ``cipher`` → ``.extra(TLSAttribute.cipher)``
  - ``getpeercert`` → ``.extra(SocketAttribute.peer_certificate)`` or
  - ``getsockopt()`` → ``.extra(SocketAttribute.raw_socket).getsockopt(...)``
  - ``peer_address`` → ``.extra(SocketAttribute.remote_address)``
  - ``receive_chunks()`` → (removed; use ``async for`` on the stream instead)
  - ``receive_delimited_chunks()`` → (removed)
  - ``receive_exactly()`` → ``BufferedReceiveStream.receive_exactly()``
  - ``receive_some()`` → ``receive()``
  - ``receive_until()`` → ``BufferedReceiveStream.receive_until()``
  - ``send_all()`` → ``send()``
  - ``setsockopt()`` → ``.extra(SocketAttribute.raw_socket).setsockopt(...)``
  - ``shared_ciphers`` → ``.extra(TLSAttribute.shared_ciphers)``
  - ``server_side`` → ``.extra(TLSAttribute.server_side)``
  - ``start_tls()`` → ``stream = TLSStream.wrap(...)``
  - ``tls_version`` → ``.extra(TLSAttribute.tls_version)``
  - ``UDPSocket`` has changes to its methods and attributes:
  - ``address`` → ``.extra(SocketAttribute.local_address)``
  - ``getsockopt()`` → ``.extra(SocketAttribute.raw_socket).getsockopt(...)``
  - ``port`` → ``.extra(SocketAttribute.local_port)``
  - ``receive()`` no longer takes a maximum bytes argument
  - ``receive_packets()`` → (removed; use ``async for`` on the UDP socket instead)
  - ``send()`` → requires a tuple for destination now (address, port), for compatibility with
  the new ``UnreliableObjectStream`` interface. The ``sendto()`` method works like the old
  ``send()`` method.
  - ``setsockopt()`` → ``.extra(SocketAttribute.raw_socket).setsockopt(...)``
  - **BACKWARDS INCOMPATIBLE** Renamed the ``max_size`` parameter to ``max_bytes`` wherever it
  occurred (this was inconsistently named ``max_bytes`` in some subclasses before)
  - Added memory object streams as a replacement for queues
  - Added stream wrappers for encoding/decoding unicode strings
  - Support for the ``SO_REUSEPORT`` option (allows binding more than one socket to the same
  address/port combination, as long as they all have this option set) has been added to TCP
  listeners and UDP sockets
  - The ``send_eof()`` method was added to all (bidirectional) streams
  - File I/O changes:
  - **BACKWARDS INCOMPATIBLE** Asynchronous file I/O functionality now uses a common code base
  (``anyio.AsyncFile``) instead of backend-native classes
  - **BACKWARDS INCOMPATIBLE** The File I/O API has changes to its functions and methods:
  - ``aopen()`` → ``open_file()``
  - ``AsyncFileclose()`` → ``AsyncFileaclose()``
  - Task synchronization changes:
  - **BACKWARDS INCOMPATIBLE** Queues were replaced by memory object streams
  - **BACKWARDS INCOMPATIBLE** Added the ``acquire()`` and ``release()`` methods to the ``Lock``,
  ``Condition`` and ``Semaphore`` classes
  - **BACKWARDS INCOMPATIBLE** Removed the ``Event.clear()`` method. You must now replace the event
  object with a new one rather than clear the old one.
  - Fixed ``Condition.wait()`` not working on asyncio and curio (PR by Matt Westcott)
  - Testing changes:
  - **BACKWARDS INCOMPATIBLE** Removed the ``--anyio-backends`` command line option for the pytest
  plugin. Use the ``-k`` option to do ad-hoc filtering, and the ``anyio_backend`` fixture to
  control which backends you wish to run the tests by default.
  - The pytest plugin was refactored to run the test and all its related async fixtures inside the
  same event loop, making async fixtures much more useful
  - Fixed Hypothesis support in the pytest plugin (it was not actually running the Hypothesis
  tests at all)
  .. _IDNA 2008:


- Added async name resolution functions (``anyio.getaddrinfo()`` and ``anyio.getnameinfo()``)
