PyUp Safety actively tracks 268,006 Python packages for vulnerabilities and notifies you when to upgrade.



* Support HPE fwpkg firmware packaging
  * Bugfixes in delete_sso_server and get_generic_ldap_enabled
  * Fix in the firmware mirror script




* Backwards compatibility with code that uses the ssl_version parameter
  * Fix a bug in mod_global_settings that accidently mapped some integers to booleans
  * More workarounds for broken XML


* mod_global_settings would always try to set a console_capture_port, which is
  horribly wrong


! Backwards compatibility warning
  The output of get_embedded_health changed: the network interfaces are now
  returned as a list instead of a dict that's keyd on the port name, as port
  names are not unique. This will make iLO interfaces and interfaces on
  non-primary nic's show up in the output.
  * call_delayed now handles exceptions (such as those caused by calling
  unsupported functions) better
  * Support for more new methods and attributes


* Fix the firmware updater


! Backwards compatibility warning
  4.0 marks the end of our support for Python 2.4 and 2.5. The oldest OS we
  support is now RHEL 6, and it uses python 2.6.
  * Optinally verify SSL certificates, when using python 2.7.9 or newer
  * Add some more new methods and fields and fix some misspelings in other fields
  * profile_desc_download now actually works

  * Our exceptions now work properly under python 3


* Several small bugfixes
  * firmware downloader updated for the hp -> hp enterprise move
  * Python 3 compatibility improved


* Improved python 3 compatibility
  * More compact XML in delayed mode to make resets and changes more cooperative
  * More workarounds for iLO firmware bugs, this time around badly encoded data
  * Add the force_format command to help recover really broken iLOs


* Support for TLSv1.1 and TLSv1.2
  * mod_dir_settings and set_host_power_saver now also accept non-numeric values


* Actually fix mod_snmp_im_settings' cpability of setting ro/trap communities

* Bugfixes in set_ers_direct_connect and get_persistent_boot
  * xmldata now also supports querying for license keys

  * More error codes get their own exception classes
  * Passing incorrect arguments to hpilo_cli now causes it to consistently exit
  with a nonzero exitcode
  * A bug in dealing with SSL errors was fixed

  garbage data added by hponcfg is now properly removed


* When reading responses saved earlier, the protocol is now detected properly
  * A new testsuite has been written
  * Various bugs were fixed
  * More error codes get their own exception classes

  request, mainly for using with OpenStack
  * Add more example applications: an elasticsearch importer and an automatic
  firmware updater
  * Modernize the hpilo_ca example
  * hpilo_cli now understands --version, and has a __version__ attribute
  * All development tools are moved to a subdir

* Adds several new functions for iLO4 support


* update_rib_firmware now accepts firmware version numbers and will install the
  specified version
  * xmldata now respects timeouts and refuses to use a proxy
  * Several small bugfixes
  Backward incompatibility note: update_rib_firmware accepts a callback that gets
  called with progress updates. The messages this callback gets have been
  simplified an no longer contain LF or ANSI characters, all responsibility for
  correct presentation now lies with the progress callback.


* Deal with backwards incompatibility in import_ssh_key
