:release-date: 2019-03-3 18:30 P.M UTC+3:00
:release-by: Omer Katz

- The Redis transport now supports a custom separator for keys.

Previously when storing a key in Redis which represents a queue
we used the hardcored value ``\x06\x16`` separator to store
different attributes of the queue in the queue's name.

The separator is now configurable using the sep
transport option:

.. code-block:: python

with Connection('redis://', transport_options={
'sep': ':',

Contributed by **Joris Beckers**

- When the SQS server returns a timeout we ignore it and keep trying
instead of raising an error.

This will prevent Celery from raising an error and hanging.

Contributed by **Erwin Rossen**

- Properly declare async support for the Qpid transport.

If you are using this transport we strongly urge you to upgrade.

Contributed by **Rohan McGovern**

- Revert `celery/kombu906 <>`_ and
introduce unique broadcast queue names as an optional keyword argument.

If you want each broadcast queue to have a unique name specify `unique=True`:

.. code-block:: pycon

>>> from kombu.common import Broadcast
>>> q = Broadcast(queue='foo', unique=True)
>>> q = Broadcast(queue='foo')

- Codebase improvements and fixes by:

- **Omer Katz**

.. _version-4.4.0:


:release-date: 2019-03-3 9:00 P.M UTC+2:00
:release-by: Omer Katz

- Restore bz2 import checks in compression module.

The checks were removed in `celery/kombu938 <>`_ due to assumption that it only affected Jython.
However, bz2 support can be missing in Pythons built without bz2 support.

Contributed by **Patrick Woods**

- Fix regression that occurred in 4.3.0
when parsing  Redis Sentinel master URI containing password.

Contributed by **Peter Lithammer**

- Handle the case when only one Redis Sentinel node is provided.

Contributed by **Peter Lithammer**

- Support SSL URL parameters correctly for `rediss://`` URIs.

Contributed by **Paul Bailey**

- Revert `celery/kombu954 <>`_.
Instead bump the required redis-py dependency to 3.2.0
to include this fix `andymccurdy/redis-py4e1e748 <>`_.

Contributed by **Peter Lithammer**

- Added support for broadcasting using a regular expression pattern
or a glob pattern to multiple Pidboxes.

Contributed by **Jason Held**

:release-date: 2019-01-14 7:00 P.M UTC+2:00
:release-by: Omer Katz

- Added Python 3.7 support.

Contributed by **Omer Katz**, **Mads Jensen** and **Asif Saif Uddin**

- Avoid caching queues which are declared with a TTL.

Queues that are declared with a TTL are now also be excluded from the
in-memory cache in case they expire between publishes on the same channel.

Contributed by **Matt Yule-Bennett**

- Added an index to the Message table for the SQLAlchemy transport.

The index allows to effectively sorting the table by the message's timestamp.

.. note::

We do not provide migrations for this model yet.
You will need to add the index manually if you are already
using the SQLAlchemy transport.

The syntax may vary between databases.
Please refer to your database's documentation for instructions.

Contributed by **Mikhail Shcherbinin**

- Added a timeout that limits the amount of time we retry
to reconnect to a transport.

Contributed by **:github_user:`tothegump`**

- :class:``celery.asynchronous.hub.Hub`` is now reentrant.

This allows calling :func:`celery.bin.celery.main` to revive a worker in
the same process after rescuing from shutdown (:class:``SystemExit``).

Contributed by **Alan Justino da Silva**

- Queues now accept string exchange names as arguments as documented.

Tests were added to avoid further regressions.

Contributed by **Antonio Gutierrez**

- Specifying names for broadcast queues now work as expected.

Previously, named broadcast queues did not create multiple queues per worker.
They incorrectly declared the named queue which resulted in one queue per
fanout exchange, thus missing the entire point of a fanout exchange.
The behavior is now matched to unnamed broadcast queues.

Contributed by **Kuan Hsuan-Tso**

- When initializing the Redis transport in conjunction with gevent
restore all unacknowledged messages to queue.

Contributed by **Gal Cohen**

- Allow :class:``kombu.simple.SimpleQueue`` to pass queue_arguments to Queue object.

This allows :class:``kombu.simple.SimpleQueue`` to connect to RabbitMQ queues with
custom arguments like 'x-queue-mode'='lazy'.

Contributed by **C Blue Neeh**

- Add support for 'rediss' scheme for secure Redis connections.

The rediss scheme defaults to the least secure form, as
there is no suitable default location for `ca_certs`. The recommendation
would still be to follow the documentation and specify `broker_use_ssl` if
coming from celery.

Contributed by **Daniel Blair**

- Added the Azure Storage Queues transport.

The transport is implemented on top of Azure Storage
Queues. This offers a simple but scalable and low-cost PaaS
transport for Celery users in Azure. The transport is intended to be
used in conjunction with the Azure Block Blob Storage backend.

Contributed by **Clemens Wolff**, **:github_user:`ankurokok`**,
**Denis Kisselev**, **Evandro de Paula**, **Martin Peck**
and **:github_user:`michaelperel`**

- Added the Azure Service Bus transport.

The transport is implemented on top of Azure Service Bus and
offers PaaS support for more demanding Celery workloads in Azure.
The transport is intended to be used in conjunction with the Azure
CosmosDB backend.

Contributed by **Clemens Wolff**, **:github_user:`ankurokok`**,
**Denis Kisselev**, **Evandro de Paula**, **Martin Peck**
and **:github_user:`michaelperel`**

- Drop remaining mentions of Jython support completely.

Contributed by **Asif Saif Uddin** and **Mads Jensen**

- When publishing messages to the Pidbox, retry if an error occurs.

Contributed by **Asif Saif Uddin**

- Fix infinite loop in :method:``kombu.asynchronous.hub.Hub.create_loop``.

Previous attempt to fix the problem (PR kombu/760) did not consider
an edge case. It is now fixed.

Contributed by **Vsevolod Strukchinsky**

- Worker shutdown no longer duplicates messages when using the SQS broker.

Contributed by **Mintu Kumar Sah**

- When using the SQS broker, prefer boto's default region before our hardcoded default.

Contributed by **Victor Villas**

- Fixed closing of shared redis sockets which previously caused Celery to hang.

Contributed by **Alexey Popravka**

- the `Pyro`_ transport (:mod:`kombu.transport.pyro`) now works with
recent Pyro versions. Also added a Pyro Kombu Broker that this transport
needs for its queues.

Contributed by **Irmen de Jong**

- Handle non-base64-encoded SQS messages.

Fix contributed by **Tim Li**, **Asif Saif Uddin** and **Omer Katz**.

- Move the handling of Sentinel failures to the redis library itself.

Previously, Redis Sentinel worked only if the first node's sentinel
service in the URI was up. A server outage would have caused downtime.

Contributed by **Brian Price**

- When using Celery and the pickle serializer with binary data as part of the
payload, `UnicodeDecodeError` would be raised as the content was not utf-8.
We now replace on errors.

Contributed by **Jian Dai**

- Allow setting :method:``boto3.sqs.create_queue`` Attributes via transport_options.

Contributed by **Hunter Fernandes**

- Fixed infinite loop when is replaced by revive() on connection

Contributed by **Tzach Yarimi**

- Added optional support for Brotli compression.

Contributed by **Omer Katz**

- When using the SQS broker, FIFO queues with names that ended with the 'f' letter
were incorrectly parsed. This is now fixed.

Contributed by **Alex Vishnya** and **Ilya Konstantinov**

-  Added optional support for LZMA compression.

Contributed by **Omer Katz**

- Added optional support for ZStandard compression.

Contributed by **Omer Katz**

- Require py-amqp 2.4.0 as the minimum version.

Contributed by **Asif Saif Uddin**

- The value of DISABLE_TRACEBACKS environment variable is now respected on debug, info
and warning logger level.

Contributed by **Ludovic Rivallain**

- As documented in kombu/741 and eventlet/eventlet415
there is a mismatch between the monkey-patched eventlet queue
and the interface Kombu is expecting.
This causes Celery to crash when the `broker_pool_limit`
configuration option is set
eventlet/eventlet415 suggests that the mutex can be a noop.
This is now the case.

.. _version-4.0.2:


:release-date: 2016-12-15 03:31 P.M PST
:release-by: Ask Solem

- Now depends on :mod:`amqp` 2.1.4

This new version takes advantage of TCP Keepalive settings on Linux,
making it better at detecting closed connections, also in failover

- Redis: Priority was reversed so, e.g. priority 0 became priority 9.

.. _version-4.0.1:


:release-date: 2016-12-07 06:00 P.M PST
:release-by: Ask Solem

- Now depends on :mod:`amqp` 2.1.3

This new version takes advantage of the new ``TCP_USER_TIMEOUT`` socket option
on Linux.

- Producer: Fixed performance degradation when default exchange specified
(Issue 651).

- QPid: Switch to using getattr in qpid.Transport.__del__ (Issue 658)

Contributed by **Patrick Creech**.

- QPid: Now uses monotonic time for timeouts.

- MongoDB: Fixed compatibility with Python 3 (Issue 661).

- Consumer: ``__exit__`` now skips cancelling consumer if connection-related
error raised (Issue 670).

- MongoDB: Removes use of natural sort (Issue 638).

Contributed by **Anton Chaporgin**.

.. _version-4.0:


:release-date: 2016-10-28 16:45 P.M UTC
:release-by: Ask Solem

- Now depends on :mod:`amqp` 2.0.

The new py-amqp version have been refactored for better performance,
using modern Python socket conventions, and API consistency.

- No longer depends on :mod:`anyjson`.

Kombu will now only choose between :pypi:`simplejson` and the built-in

Using the latest version of simplejson is recommended:

.. code-block:: console

$ pip install -U simplejson

- Removed transports that are no longer supported in this version:

- Django ORM transport
- SQLAlchemy ORM transport
- Beanstalk transport
- ZeroMQ transport
- amqplib transport (use pyamqp).

- API Changes

* Signature of :class:`kombu.Message` now takes body as first argment.

It used to be ``Message(channel, body=body, **kw)``, but now it's
``Message(body, channel=channel, **kw)``.

This is unlikey to affect you, as the Kombu API does not have
users instantiate messages manually.

- New SQS transport

Donated by NextDoor, with additional contributions from mdk.

.. note::

``kombu[sqs]`` now depends on :pypi:`pycurl`.

- New Consul transport.

Contributed by **Wido den Hollander**.

- New etcd transport.

Contributed by **Stephen Milner**.

- New Qpid transport.

It was introduced as an experimental transport in Kombu 3.0, but is now
mature enough to be fully supported.

Created and maintained by **Brian Bouterse**.

- Redis: Priority 0 is now lowest, 9 is highest.
(**backward incompatible**)

This to match how priorities in AMQP works.

Fix contributed by **Alex Koshelev**.

- Redis: Support for Sentinel

You can point the connection to a list of sentinel URLs like:

.. code-block:: text


where each sentinel is separated by a `;`. Multiple sentinels are handled
by :class:`kombu.Connection` constructor, and placed in the alternative
list of servers to connect to in case of connection failure.

Contributed by **Sergey Azovskov**, and **Lorenzo Mancini**

- RabbitMQ Queue Extensions

New arguments have been added to :class:`kombu.Queue` that lets
you directly and conveniently configure the RabbitMQ queue extensions.

- ``Queue(expires=20.0)``

Set queue expiry time in float seconds.

See :attr:`kombu.Queue.expires`.

- ``Queue(message_ttl=30.0)``

Set queue message time-to-live float seconds.

See :attr:`kombu.Queue.message_ttl`.

- ``Queue(max_length=1000)``

Set queue max length (number of messages) as int.

See :attr:`kombu.Queue.max_length`.

- ``Queue(max_length_bytes=1000)``

Set queue max length (message size total in bytes) as int.

See :attr:`kombu.Queue.max_length_bytes`.

- ``Queue(max_priority=10)``

Declare queue to be a priority queue that routes messages
based on the ``priority`` field of the message.

See :attr:`kombu.Queue.max_priority`.

- RabbitMQ: ``Message.ack`` now supports the ``multiple`` argument.

If multiple is set to True, then all messages received before
the message being acked will also be acknowledged.

- ``amqps://`` can now be specified to require SSL (Issue 610).

- ``Consumer.cancel_by_queue`` is now constant time.

- ``Connection.ensure*`` now raises :exc:`kombu.exceptions.OperationalError`.

Things that can be retried are now reraised as

- Redis: Fixed SSL support.

Contributed by **Robert Kolba**.

- New ``Queue.consumer_arguments`` can be used for the ability to
set consumer priority via ``x-priority``.



.. code-block:: python

consumer_arguments={'x-priority': 3},

- Queue/Exchange: ``no_declare`` option added (also enabled for
internal amq. exchanges) (Issue 565).

- JSON serializer now calls ``obj.__json__`` for unsupported types.

This means you can now define a ``__json__`` method for custom
types that can be reduced down to a built-in json type.


.. code-block:: python

class Person:
first_name = None
last_name = None
address = None

def __json__(self):
return {
'first_name': self.first_name,
'last_name': self.last_name,
'address': self.address,

- JSON serializer now handles datetimes, Django promise, UUID and Decimal.

- Beanstalk: Priority 0 is now lowest, 9 is highest.
(**backward incompatible**)

This to match how priorities in AMQP works.

Fix contributed by **Alex Koshelev**.

- Redis: now supports SSL using the ``ssl`` argument to

- Redis: Fanout exchanges are no longer visible between vhosts,
and fanout messages can be filtered by patterns.
(**backward incompatible**)

It was possible to enable this mode previously using the
``fanout_prefix``, and ``fanout_patterns``
transport options, but now these are enabled by default.

If you want to mix and match producers/consumers running different
versions you need to configure your kombu 3.x clients to also enable
these options:

.. code-block:: pycon

>>> Connection(transport_options={
'fanout_prefix': True,
'fanout_patterns': True,

- Pidbox: Mailbox new arguments: TTL and expiry.

Mailbox now supports new arguments for controlling
message TTLs and queue expiry, both for the mailbox
queue and for reply queues.

- ``queue_expires`` (float/int seconds).
- ``queue_ttl`` (float/int seconds).
- ``reply_queue_expires`` (float/int seconds).
- ``reply_queue_ttl`` (float/int seconds).

All take seconds in int/float.

Contributed by **Alan Justino**.

- Exchange.delivery_mode now defaults to :const:`None`, and the default
is instead set by ``Producer.publish``.

- :class:`~kombu.Consumer` now supports a new ``prefetch_count`` argument,
which if provided will force the consumer to set an initial prefetch count
just before starting.

- Virtual transports now stores ``priority`` as a property, not in
``delivery_info``, to be compatible with AMQP.

- ``reply_to`` argument to ``Producer.publish`` can now be
:class:`~kombu.Queue` instance.

- Connection: There's now a new method
``Connection.supports_exchange_type(type)`` that can be used to check if the
current transport supports a specific exchange type.

- SQS: Consumers can now read json messages not sent by Kombu.

Contributed by **Juan Carlos Ferrer**.

- SQS: Will now log the access key used when authentication fails.

Contributed by **Hank John**.

- Added new :class:`kombu.mixins.ConsumerProducerMixin` for consumers that
will also publish messages on a separate connection.

- Messages: Now have a more descriptive ``repr``.

Contributed by **Joshua Harlow**.

- Async: HTTP client based on curl.

- Async: Now uses `poll` instead of `select` where available.

- MongoDB: Now supports priorities

Contributed by **Alex Koshelev**.

- Virtual transports now supports multiple queue bindings.

Contributed by **Federico Ficarelli**.

- Virtual transports now supports the anon exchange.

If when publishing a message, the exchange argument is set to '' (empty
string), the routing_key will be regarded as the destination queue.

This will bypass the routing table compeltely, and just deliver the
message to the queue name specified in the routing key.

- Zookeeper: Transport now uses the built-in suport in kazoo to handle
failover when using a list of server names.

Contributed by **Joshua Harlow**.

- now passes keyword arguments to .consume.

Deprecations and removals

- The deprecated method ``Consumer.add_queue_from_dict`` has been removed.

Use instead:

.. code-block:: python

consumer.add_queue(Queue.from_dict(queue_name, **options))

- The deprecated function ``kombu.serialization.encode`` has been removed.

Use :func:`kombu.serialization.dumps` instead.

- The deprecated function ``kombu.serialization.decode`` has been removed.

Use :func:`kombu.serialization.loads` instead.

- Removed module ``kombu.syn``

``detect_environment`` has been moved to kombu.utils.compat

.. _version-3.0.37:



- Logging max memory reached at INFO rather than WARNING (255)

-  Pass arguments when wrapping sys.exit (275)

-  Remove win32/py2k special (276)

- Ensure READY messages sent out by exiting worker are consumed prior to it actually existing.

- Pass max_memory_per_child to child worker process (251)

- Fix compatibility with Python 2.7 on Windows (283)


- Add support of sending parent process death signal.

- Previous fix for handling timeouts caused a problem in warm shutdowns due
to use of deepcopy.

We now use a shallow copy of the cache and do so only when it is needed.

- Cleanup old checks and workarounds for Python versions we no longer support.


- Fix a crash when handling a timeout.

a BytesIO instance directly to ``pickle.loads`` on Python 2.7.


- Connection: Properly handle EINTR (Issue 191).

depending on the python version used.

This way the installation will not import version specific modules (and
possibly crash).

to set the read or write end of the pipe to be nonblocking.

- Pool: Log message included exception info but exception happened
in another process so the resulting traceback was wrong.

- Pool: Worker process can now prepare results before they are sent
back to the main process (using ``Worker.prepare_result``).


- Pool: New ``correlation_id`` argument to ``apply_async`` can be

- Pool: Can now be extended to support using multiple IPC queues.

- Pool: Can now use async I/O to write to pool IPC queues.

- RabbitMQ 3.3 changes QoS semantics (Issue 339).

See the RabbitMQ release notes here:

A new connection property has been added that can be used to detect
whether the remote server is using this new QoS behavior:

.. code-block:: pycon

>>> Connection('amqp://').qos_behavior_matches_spec

so if your application depends on the old semantics you can
use this to set the ``apply_global`` flag appropriately:

.. code-block:: python

def update_prefetch_count(channel, new_value):
0, new_value,
not channel.connection.client.qos_behavior_matches_spec,

- Users of :mod:`librabbitmq` is encouraged to upgrade to librabbitmq 1.5.0.

The ``kombu[librabbitmq]`` extra has been updated to depend on this

- Redis: Fixed serious race condition that could lead to data loss.

The delivery tags were accidentally set to be an incremental number
local to the channel, but the delivery tags need to be globally
unique so that a message can not overwrite an older message
in the backup store.

This change is not backwards incompatible and you are encouraged
to update all your system using a previous version as soon as possible.

- Now depends on :mod:`amqp` 1.4.4.

- Pidbox: Now makes sure message encoding errors are handled by default,
so that a custom error handler does not need to be specified.

- Redis: The fanout exchange can now use AMQP patterns to route and filter

This change is backwards incompatible and must be enabled with
the ``fanout_patterns`` transport option:

.. code-block:: pycon

>>> conn = kombu.Connection('redis://', transport_options={
...     'fanout_patterns': True,
... })

When enabled the exchange will work like an amqp topic exchange
if the binding key is a pattern.

This is planned to be default behavior in the future.

the ``Consumer.on_decode_error`` callback if specified.

- New ``kombu.Connection.get_heartbeat_interval()`` method that can be
used to access the negotiated heartbeat value.

- `kombu.common.oid_for` no longer uses the MAC address of the host, but
instead uses a process-wide UUID4 as a node id.

- ``maybe_declare`` now raises a "recoverable connection error" if
the channel is disconnected instead of a :exc:`ChannelError` so that
the operation can be retried.

- Redis: ``Consumer.cancel()`` is now thread safe.

This fixes an issue when using gevent/eventlet and a
message is handled after the consumer is canceled resulting
in a "message for queue without consumers" error.

- Retry operations would not always respect the interval_start
value when calculating the time to sleep for (Issue 303).

consumers"`` error.

- MongoDB: Improved connection string and options handling
(Issue 266 + Issue 120).

Contributed by Alex Koshelev.

- SQS: Limit the number of messages when receiving in batch to 10.

.. _version-3.0.1:


:release-date: 2013-10-24 04:00 P.M UTC
:release-by: Ask Solem

- Now depends on :mod:`amqp` version 1.3.1.

- Redis: New option ``fanout_keyprefix``

This transport option is recommended for all users as it ensures
that broadcast (fanout) messages sent is only seen by the current
virtual host:

.. code-block:: python

Connection('redis://', transport_options={'fanout_keyprefix': True})

However, enabling this means that you cannot send or receive messages
from older Kombu versions so make sure all of your participants
are upgraded and have the transport option enabled.

This will be the default behavior in Kombu 4.0.

- Distribution: Removed file ``requirements/py25.txt``.

- MongoDB: Now disables ``auto_start_request``.

- MongoDB: Enables ``use_greenlets`` if eventlet/gevent used.

- Pidbox: Fixes problem where expires header was None,
which is a value not supported by the amq protocol.

- ConsumerMixin: New ``consumer_context`` method for starting
the consumer without draining events.

.. _version-3.0.0:



Kombu 3 consumers will no longer accept pickle/yaml or msgpack
by default, and you will have to explicitly enable untrusted deserializers
either globally using :func:`kombu.enable_insecure_serializers`, or
using the ``accept`` argument to :class:`~kombu.Consumer`.


- New utility function to disable/enable untrusted serializers.

- :func:`kombu.disable_insecure_serializers`
- :func:`kombu.enable_insecure_serializers`.

- Consumer: ``accept`` can now be used to specify a whitelist
of content types to accept.

If the accept whitelist is set and a message is received
with a content type that is not in the whitelist then a
:exc:`~kombu.exceptions.ContentDisallowed` exception
is raised.  Note that this error can be handled by the already
existing `on_decode_error` callback


.. code-block:: python

Consumer(accept=['pickle', 'json'])

- Now depends on amqp 1.0.11

- pidbox: Mailbox now supports the ``accept`` argument.

- Redis: More friendly error for when keys are missing.

- Connection URLs: The parser did not work well when there were
multiple '+' tokens.

.. _version-2.5.9:


:release-date: 2013-10-14 04:00 P.M BST
:release-by: Ask Solem

- Now depends on :mod:`amqp` version 1.3.

- No longer supports Python 2.5

The minimum Python version supported is now Python 2.6.0 for Python 2,
and Python 3.3 for Python 3.

- Dual codebase supporting both Python 2 and 3.

No longer using ``2to3``, making it easier to maintain support for
both versions.

- pickle, yaml and msgpack deserialization is now disabled by default.

This means that Kombu will by default refuse to handle any content type other
than json.

Pickle is known to be a security concern as it will happily
load any object that is embedded in a pickle payload, and payloads
can be crafted to do almost anything you want.  The default
serializer in Kombu is json but it also supports a number
of other serialization formats that it will evaluate if received:
including pickle.

It was always assumed that users were educated about the security
implications of pickle, but in hindsight we don't think users
should be expected to secure their services if we have the ability to
be secure by default.

By disabling any content type that the user did not explicitly
want enabled we ensure that the user must be conscious when they
add pickle as a serialization format to support.

The other built-in serializers (yaml and msgpack) are also disabled
even though they aren't considered insecure [f1]_ at this point.
Instead they're disabled so that if a security flaw is found in one of these
libraries in the future, you will only be affected if you have
explicitly enabled them.

To have your consumer accept formats other than json you have to
explicitly add the wanted formats to a white-list of accepted
content types:

.. code-block:: pycon

>>> c = Consumer(conn, accept=['json', 'pickle', 'msgpack'])

or when using synchronous access:

.. code-block:: pycon

>>> msg = queue.get(accept=['json', 'pickle', 'msgpack'])

The ``accept`` argument was first supported for consumers in version
2.5.10, and first supported by ``Queue.get`` in version 2.5.15
so to stay compatible with previous versions you can enable
the previous behavior:

>>> from kombu import enable_insecure_serializers
>>> enable_insecure_serializers()

But note that this has global effect, so be very careful should you use it.

.. rubric:: Footnotes

.. [f1] The PyYAML library has a :func:`yaml.load` function with some of the
same security implications as pickle, but Kombu uses the
:func:`yaml.safe_load` function which is not known to be affected.

- kombu.async: Experimental event loop implementation.

This code was previously in Celery but was moved here
to make it easier for async transport implementations.

The API is meant to match the Tulip API which will be included
in Python 3.4 as the ``asyncio`` module.  It's not a complete
implementation obviously, but the goal is that it will be easy
to change to it once that is possible.

- Utility function ``kombu.common.ipublish`` has been removed.

Use ``Producer(..., retry=True)`` instead.

- Utility function ``kombu.common.isend_reply`` has been removed

Use ``send_reply(..., retry=True)`` instead.

- ``kombu.common.entry_to_queue`` and ``kombu.messaging.entry_to_queue``
has been removed.

Use ``Queue.from_dict(name, **options)`` instead.

- Redis: Messages are now restored at the end of the list.

Contributed by Mark Lavin.

- ``StdConnectionError`` and ``StdChannelError`` is removed
and :exc:`amqp.ConnectionError` and :exc:`amqp.ChannelError` is used

- Message object implementation has moved to :class:`kombu.message.Message`.

- Serailization: Renamed functions encode/decode to
:func:`~kombu.serialization.dumps` and :func:`~kombu.serialization.loads`.

For backward compatibility the old names are still available as aliases.

- The ``kombu.log.anon_logger`` function has been removed.

Use :func:`~kombu.log.get_logger` instead.

- ``queue_declare`` now returns namedtuple with ``queue``, ``message_count``,
and ``consumer_count`` fields.

- LamportClock: Can now set lock class

- :mod:`kombu.utils.clock`: Utilities for ordering events added.

Redis transport: Now supports using local UNIX sockets to communicate with the
Redis server (Issue 1283)

To connect using a UNIX socket you have to use the ``redis+socket``
URL-prefix: ``redis+socket:///tmp/redis.sock``.

This functionality was merged from the `celery-redis-unixsocket`_ project.

- Fixed ImportError in billiard._ext


- Compilation: Fixed improper handling of HAVE_SEM_OPEN (Issue 55)

Fix contributed by Krzysztof Jagiello.

- Process now releases logging locks after fork.

This previously happened in Pool, but it was done too late
as processes logs when they bootstrap.

- Pool.terminate_job now ignores `No such process` errors.

- billiard.Pool entrypoint did not support new arguments
to billiard.pool.Pool

- Connection inbound buffer size increased from 1kb to 128kb.

- C extension cleaned up by properly adding a namespace to symbols.

- _exit_function now works even if thread wakes up after gc collect.


- Pool: Fixed regression that disabled the deadlock
fix in

- Pool: RestartFreqExceeded could be raised prematurely.

- Process: Include pid in startup and process INFO logs.


- Manager now works again.

- Python 3 fixes for billiard.connection.

- Fixed invalid argument bug when running on Python 3.3

Fix contributed by Nathan Wan.

- Ignore OSError when setting up signal handlers.


- Pool: Child processes must ignore SIGINT.


- Pool: broke support for subprocesses (Issue 48).

Signals that should be ignored were instead handled
by terminating.


- Pool:  Make sure finally blocks are called when process exits
due to a signal.

This fixes a deadlock problem when the process is killed
while having acquired the shared semaphore.  However, this solution
does not protect against the processes being killed, a more elaborate
solution is required for that. Hopefully this will be fixed soon in a
later version.

- Pool:  Can now use GDB to debug pool child processes.

- Fixes Python 3 compatibility problems.

Contributed by Albertas Agejevas.


- Windows: Now catches SystemExit from setuptools while trying to build
the C extension (Issue 41).


- Pool: apply_async now supports a ``callbacks_propagate`` keyword
argument that can be a tuple of exceptions to propagate in callbacks.
(callback, errback, accept_callback, timeout_callback).

- Errors are no longer logged for OK and recycle exit codes.

This would cause normal maxtasksperchild recycled process
to log an error.

- Fixed Python 2.5 compatibility problem (Issue 33).

- FreeBSD: Compilation now disables semaphores if Python was built
without it (Issue 40).

- Pool: Job terminated with terminate_job now raises


- Windows: Fixes unpickling of SemLock when using fallback.

- Windows: Fixes installation when no C compiler.


- Installation now works again for Python 3.


- Merged with Python trunk (many authors, many fixes: see Python changelog in

- Using execv now also works with older Django projects using setup_environ
(Issue 10).

- Billiard now installs with a warning that the C extension could not be built
if a compiler is not installed or the build fails in some other way.

It really is recommended to have the C extension installed when running
with force execv, but this change also makes it easier to install.

- Pool: Hard timeouts now sends KILL shortly after TERM so that C extensions
cannot block the signal.

Python signal handlers are called in the interpreter, so they cannot
be called while a C extension is blocking the interpreter from running.

- Now uses a timeout value for Thread.join that doesn't exceed the maximum
on some platforms.

- Fixed bug in the SemLock fallback used when C extensions not installed.

Fix contributed by Mher Movsisyan.

- Pool: Now sets a Process.index attribute for every process in the pool.

This number will always be between 0 and concurrency-1, and
can be used to e.g. create a logfile for each process in the pool
without creating a new logfile whenever a process is replaced.


- Fixed Python 2.5 compatibility issue.

- New Pool.terminate_job(pid) to terminate a job without raising WorkerLostError


- Adds support for FreeBSD 7+

Fix contributed by koobs.

- Pool: New argument ``allow_restart`` is now required to enable
the pool process sentinel that is required to restart the pool.

It's disabled by default, which reduces the number of file
descriptors/semaphores required to run the pool.

- Pool: Now emits a warning if a worker process exited with error-code.

But not if the error code is 155, which is now returned if the worker
process was recycled (maxtasksperchild).

- Python 3 compatibility fixes.

- Python 2.5 compatibility fixes.


- The ``TimeLimitExceeded`` exception string representation
only included the seconds as a number, it now gives a more human
friendly description.

- Fixed typo in ``LaxBoundedSemaphore.shrink``.

- Pool: ``ResultHandler.handle_event`` no longer requires
any arguments.

- bdist now works


- Environment variable ``MP_MAIN_FILE`` envvar is now set to
the path of the ``__main__`` module when execv is enabled.

- Pool: Errors occurring in the TaskHandler are now reported.


- Can now be installed on Py 3.2

- Issue 12091: simplify ApplyResult and MapResult with threading.Event

Patch by Charles-Francois Natali

- Pool: Support running without TimeoutHandler thread.

- The with_*_thread arguments has also been replaced with
a single `threads=True` argument.

- Two new pool callbacks:

- ``on_timeout_set(job, soft, hard)``

Applied when a task is executed with a timeout.

- ``on_timeout_cancel(job)``

Applied when a timeout is cancelled (the job completed)


- Fixes Python 2.5 support.


- Pool: Can now be used in an event loop, without starting the supporting
threads (TimeoutHandler still not supported)

To facilitate this the pool has gained the following keyword arguments:

- ``with_task_thread``
- ``with_result_thread``
- ``with_supervisor_thread``
- ``on_process_up``

Callback called with Process instance as argument
whenever a new worker process is added.

Used to add new process fds to the eventloop::

def on_process_up(proc):
hub.add_reader(proc.sentinel, pool.maintain_pool)

- ``on_process_down``

Callback called with Process instance as argument
whenever a new worker process is found dead.

Used to remove process fds from the eventloop::

def on_process_down(proc):

- ``semaphore``

Sets the semaphore used to protect from adding new items to the
pool when no processes available.  The default is a threaded
one, so this can be used to change to an async semaphore.

And the following attributes::

- ``readers``

A map of ``fd`` -> ``callback``, to be registered in an eventloop.
Currently this is only the result outqueue with a callback
that processes all currently incoming results.

And the following methods::

- ``did_start_ok``

To be called after starting the pool, and after setting up the
eventloop with the pool fds, to ensure that the worker processes
didn't immediately exit caused by an error (internal/memory).

- ``maintain_pool``

Public version of ``_maintain_pool`` that handles max restarts.

- Pool: Process too frequent restart protection now only counts if the process
had a non-successful exit-code.

This to take into account the maxtasksperchild option, and allowing
processes to exit cleanly on their own.

- Pool: New options max_restart + max_restart_freq

This means that the supervisor can't restart processes
faster than max_restart' times per max_restart_freq seconds
(like the Erlang supervisor maxR & maxT settings).

The pool is closed and joined if the max restart
frequency is exceeded, where previously it would keep restarting
at an unlimited rate, possibly crashing the system.

The current default value is to stop if it exceeds
100 * process_count restarts in 1 seconds.  This may change later.

It will only count processes with an unsuccessful exit code,
this is to take into account the ``maxtasksperchild`` setting
and code that voluntarily exits.

- Pool: The ``WorkerLostError`` message now includes the exit-code of the
process that disappeared.


- Now always cleans up after ``sys.exc_info()`` to avoid
cyclic references.

- ExceptionInfo without arguments now defaults to ``sys.exc_info``.

- Forking can now be disabled using the

Also this envvar is set so that the behavior is inherited
after execv.

- The semaphore cleanup process started when execv is used
now sets a useful process name if the ``setproctitle``
module is installed.

environment variable if forking is disabled.


- Added `billiard.ensure_multiprocessing()`

Raises NotImplementedError if the platform does not support
multiprocessing (e.g. Jython).


- PyPy now falls back to using its internal _multiprocessing module,
so everything works except for forking_enable(False) (which
silently degrades).

- Fixed Python 2.5 compat. issues.

- Uses more with statements

- Merged some of the changes from the Python 3 branch.


- Now installs on PyPy/Jython (but does not work).


- Python 2.5 support added.

- Redis:  Improved fair queue cycle implementation (Issue 166).

Contributed by Kevin McCarthy.

- Redis: Unacked message restore limit is now unlimited by default.

Also, the limit can now be configured using the ``unacked_restore_limit``
transport option:

.. code-block:: python

Connection('redis://', transport_options={
'unacked_restore_limit': 100,

A limit of 100 means that the consumer will restore at most 100
messages at each pass.

- Redis: Now uses a mutex to ensure only one consumer restores messages at a

The mutex expires after 5 minutes by default, but can be configured
using the ``unacked_mutex_expire`` transport option.

- LamportClock.adjust now returns the new clock value.

- Heartbeats can now be specified in URLs.

This improvement will create a new compund index for queue and _id in order
to be able to use both indexed fields for getting a new message (using
queue field) and sorting by _id.  It'll be necessary to manually delete
the old index from the collection.

- Fix inconsistent frame_handler return value.

The function returned by frame_handler is meant to return True
once the complete message is received and the callback is called,
False otherwise.

This fixes the return value for messages with a body split across
multiple frames, and heartbeat frames.

Fix contributed by **:github_user:`evanunderscore`**

- Don't default content_encoding to utf-8 for bytes.

This is not an acceptable default as the content may not be
valid utf-8, and even if it is, the producer likely does not
expect the message to be decoded by the consumer.

Fix contributed by **:github_user:`evanunderscore`**

- Fix encoding of messages with multibyte characters.

Body length was previously calculated using string length,
which may be less than the length of the encoded body when
it contains multibyte sequences. This caused the body of
the frame to be truncated.

Fix contributed by **:github_user:`evanunderscore`**

- Respect content_encoding when encoding messages.

Previously the content_encoding was ignored and messages
were always encoded as utf-8. This caused messages to be
incorrectly decoded if content_encoding is properly respected
when decoding.

The name ``Connection`` has been an alias for a very long time,

The Connection alias has been available since version 1.1.3,

- Trying to use the ``librabbitmq://`` transport will now show the right
name in the :exc:`ImportError` if :mod:`librabbitmq` is not installed.

The librabbitmq falls back to the older ``pylibrabbitmq`` name for
compatibility reasons and would therefore show ``No module named

Or when using :pypi:`Celery` it can be specified using the
``broker_transport_options`` setting:

* kombu.pools: Fixed a bug resulting in resources not being properly released.

This was caused by the use of ``__hash__`` to distinguish them.

* Virtual transports: Dead-letter queue is now disabled by default.

The dead-letter queue was enabled by default to help application
authors, but now that Kombu is stable it should be removed.
There are after all many cases where messages should just be dropped
when there are no queues to buffer them, and keeping them without
supporting automatic cleanup is rather considered a resource leak
than a feature.

If wanted the dead-letter queue can still be enabled, by using
the ``deadletter_queue`` transport option:

.. code-block:: pycon

>>> x = Connection('redis://',
...       transport_options={'deadletter_queue': 'ae.undeliver'})

In addition, an :class:`UndeliverableWarning` is now emitted when
the dead-letter queue is enabled and a message ends up there.

* MongoDB transport now supports Replicasets (Issue 81).

``rate`` argument (which is now ignored).

- Heartbeat interval is negotiated with the server.
- Some delay is allowed if the heartbeat is late.
- Monotonic time is used to keep track of the heartbeat
instead of relying on the caller to call the checking function
at the right time.

- NoneType is now supported in tables and arrays.

- SSLTransport: Now handles ``ENOENT``.

- Now sets ```` on delivery (Issue 12)

amqplib used to make the channel object available
as ``Message.delivery_info['channel']``, but this was removed
in py-amqp.  librabbitmq sets ````,
which is a more reasonable solution in our opinion as that
keeps the delivery info intact.

- New option to wait for publish confirmations (Issue 3)

There is now a new Connection ``confirm_publish`` that will
force any ``basic_publish`` call to wait for confirmation.

Enabling publisher confirms like this degrades performance
considerably, but can be suitable for some applications
and now it's possible by configuration.

- ``queue_declare`` now returns named tuple of type

Supporting fields: ``queue``, ``message_count``, and

- Contents of ``Channel.returned_messages`` is now named tuples.

Supporting fields: ``reply_code``, ``reply_text``, ``exchange``,
``routing_key``, and ``message``.

- Sockets now set to close on exec using the ``FD_CLOEXEC`` flag.

Currently only supported on platforms supporting this flag,
which does not include Windows.

.. _version-0.9.1:



- Supports draining events from multiple channels (``Connection.drain_events``)
- Support for timeouts
- Support for heartbeats
- ``Connection.heartbeat_tick(rate=2)`` must called at regular intervals
(half of the heartbeat value if rate is 2).
- Or some other scheme by using ``Connection.send_heartbeat``.
- Supports RabbitMQ extensions:
- Consumer Cancel Notifications
- by default a cancel results in ``ChannelError`` being raised
- but not if a ``on_cancel`` callback is passed to ``basic_consume``.
- Publisher confirms
- ``Channel.confirm_select()`` enables publisher confirms.
- ``['basic_ack'].append(my_callback)`` adds a callback
to be called when a message is confirmed. This callback is then
called with the signature ``(delivery_tag, multiple)``.
- Support for ``basic_return``
- Uses AMQP 0-9-1 instead of 0-8.
- ``Channel.access_request`` and ``ticket`` arguments to methods
- Supports the ``arguments`` argument to ``basic_consume``.
- ``internal`` argument to ``exchange_declare`` removed.
- ``auto_delete`` argument to ``exchange_declare`` deprecated
- ``insist`` argument to ``Connection`` removed.
- ``Channel.alerts`` has been removed.
- Support for ``Channel.basic_recover_async``.
- ``Channel.basic_recover`` deprecated.
- Exceptions renamed to have idiomatic names:
- ``AMQPException`` -> ``AMQPError``
- ``AMQPConnectionException`` -> ConnectionError``
- ``AMQPChannelException`` -> ChannelError``
- ``Connection.known_hosts`` removed.
- ``Connection`` no longer supports redirects.
- ``exchange`` argument to ``queue_bind`` can now be empty
to use the "default exchange".
- Adds ``Connection.is_alive`` that tries to detect
whether the connection can still be used.
- Adds ``Connection.connection_errors`` and ``.channel_errors``,
a list of recoverable errors.
- Exposes the underlying socket as ``Connection.sock``.
- Adds ``Channel.no_ack_consumers`` to keep track of consumer tags
that set the no_ack flag.
- Slightly better at error recovery
