Release History
===============
4.1.0 (2021-10-05)
------------------
**Note:** The GitHub repository has been renamed to ``python-hyper/h2``, previously
was ``python-hyper/hyper-h2``. **The name of the package on PyPI is unchanged!**
API Changes (Backward-Compatible)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
- Support for Python 3.9 has been added.
- Support for Python 3.10 has been added.
- New example for a Python socket HTTP/2 client.
- New `OutputLogger` for use with ``h2.config.logger``. This is only provided
for convenience and not part of the stable API.
Bugfixes
~~~~~~~~
- Header validation now rejects empty header names with a ProtocolError. While
hpack decodes such header blocks without issues, they violate the
HTTP semantics.
- Fix TE header name in error message.
4.0.0 (2020-09-19)
------------------
API Changes (Backward-Incompatible)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
- Support for Python 2.7 has been removed.
- Support for Python 3.4 has been removed.
- Support for Python 3.5 has been removed.
- Support for PyPy (Python 2.7 compatible) has been removed.
- Support for Python 3.8 has been added.
- Receiving DATA before HEADERS now raises a ProtocolError (see https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7540#section-8.1)
3.2.0 (2020-02-08)
------------------
Bugfixes
~~~~~~~~
- Receiving DATA frames on closed (or reset) streams now properly emit a
WINDOW_UPDATE to keep the connection flow window topped up.
API Changes (Backward-Incompatible)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
- ``h2.config.logger`` now uses a `trace(...)` function, in addition
to `debug(...)`. If you defined a custom logger object, you need to handle
these new function calls.
3.1.1 (2019-08-02)
------------------
Bugfixes
~~~~~~~~
- Ignore WINDOW_UPDATE and RST_STREAM frames received after stream
closure.
3.1.0 (2019-01-22)
------------------
API Changes (Backward-Incompatible)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
- ``h2.connection.H2Connection.data_to_send`` first and only argument ``amt``
was renamed to ``amount``.
- Support for Python 3.3 has been removed.
API Changes (Backward-Compatible)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
- ``h2.connection.H2Connection.send_data`` now supports ``data`` parameter
being a ``memoryview`` object.
- Refactor ping-related events: a ``h2.events.PingReceived`` event is fired
when a PING frame is received and a ``h2.events.PingAckReceived`` event is
fired when a PING frame with an ACK flag is received.
``h2.events.PingAcknowledged`` is deprecated in favour of the identical
``h2.events.PingAckReceived``.
- Added ``ENABLE_CONNECT_PROTOCOL`` to ``h2.settings.SettingCodes``.
- Support ``CONNECT`` requests with a ``:protocol`` pseudo header
thereby supporting RFC 8441.
- A limit to the number of closed streams kept in memory by the
connection is applied. It can be configured by
``h2.connection.H2Connection.MAX_CLOSED_STREAMS``.
Bugfixes
~~~~~~~~
- Debug logging when stream_id is None is now fixed and no longer errors.
3.0.1 (2017-04-03)
------------------
Bugfixes
~~~~~~~~
- CONTINUATION frames sent on closed streams previously caused stream errors
of type STREAM_CLOSED. RFC 7540 § 6.10 requires that these be connection
errors of type PROTOCOL_ERROR, and so this release changes to match that
behaviour.
- Remote peers incrementing their inbound connection window beyond the maximum
allowed value now cause stream-level errors, rather than connection-level
errors, allowing connections to stay up longer.
- h2 now rejects receiving and sending request header blocks that are missing
any of the mandatory pseudo-header fields (:path, :scheme, and :method).
- h2 now rejects receiving and sending request header blocks that have an empty
:path pseudo-header value.
- h2 now rejects receiving and sending request header blocks that contain
response-only pseudo-headers, and vice versa.
- h2 now correct respects user-initiated changes to the HEADER_TABLE_SIZE
local setting, and ensures that if users shrink or increase the header
table size it is policed appropriately.
2.6.2 (2017-04-03)
------------------
Bugfixes
~~~~~~~~
- CONTINUATION frames sent on closed streams previously caused stream errors
of type STREAM_CLOSED. RFC 7540 § 6.10 requires that these be connection
errors of type PROTOCOL_ERROR, and so this release changes to match that
behaviour.
- Remote peers incrementing their inbound connection window beyond the maximum

- h2 now rejects receiving and sending request header blocks that have an empty
:path pseudo-header value.
- h2 now rejects receiving and sending request header blocks that contain
response-only pseudo-headers, and vice versa.
- h2 now correct respects user-initiated changes to the HEADER_TABLE_SIZE
local setting, and ensures that if users shrink or increase the header
table size it is policed appropriately.
2.5.4 (2017-04-03)
------------------
Bugfixes
~~~~~~~~
- CONTINUATION frames sent on closed streams previously caused stream errors
of type STREAM_CLOSED. RFC 7540 § 6.10 requires that these be connection
errors of type PROTOCOL_ERROR, and so this release changes to match that
behaviour.
- Remote peers incrementing their inbound connection window beyond the maximum

local setting, and ensures that if users shrink or increase the header
table size it is policed appropriately.
3.0.0 (2017-03-24)
------------------
API Changes (Backward-Incompatible)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
- By default, hyper-h2 now joins together received cookie header fields, per
RFC 7540 Section 8.1.2.5.
- Added a ``normalize_inbound_headers`` flag to the ``H2Configuration`` object
that defaults to ``True``. Setting this to ``False`` changes the behaviour
from the previous point back to the v2 behaviour.
- Removed deprecated fields from ``h2.errors`` module.
- Removed deprecated fields from ``h2.settings`` module.
- Removed deprecated ``client_side`` and ``header_encoding`` arguments from
``H2Connection``.
- Removed deprecated ``client_side`` and ``header_encoding`` properties from
``H2Connection``.
- ``dict`` objects are no longer allowed for user-supplied headers.
- The default header encoding is now ``None``, not ``utf-8``: this means that
all events that carry headers now return those headers as byte strings by
default. The header encoding can be set back to ``utf-8`` to restore the old
behaviour.
API Changes (Backward-Compatible)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
- Added new ``UnknownFrameReceived`` event that fires when unknown extension
frames have been received. This only fires when using hyperframe 5.0 or
later: earlier versions of hyperframe cause us to silently ignore extension
frames.
Bugfixes
~~~~~~~~
None
2.6.1 (2017-03-16)
------------------
Bugfixes
~~~~~~~~
- Allowed hyperframe v5 support while continuing to ignore unexpected frames.
2.5.3 (2017-03-16)
------------------
Bugfixes
~~~~~~~~
- Allowed hyperframe v5 support while continuing to ignore unexpected frames.
2.4.4 (2017-03-16)
------------------
Bugfixes
~~~~~~~~
- Allowed hyperframe v5 support while continuing to ignore unexpected frames.
2.6.0 (2017-02-28)
------------------
API Changes (Backward-Compatible)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
- Added a new ``h2.events.Event`` class that acts as a base class for all
events.
- Rather than reject outbound Connection-specific headers, h2 will now
normalize the header block by removing them.
- Implement equality for the ``h2.settings.Settings`` class.
- Added ``h2.settings.SettingCodes``, an enum that is used to store all the
HTTP/2 setting codes. This allows us to use a better printed representation of
the setting code in most places that it is used.
- The ``setting`` field in ``ChangedSetting`` for the ``RemoteSettingsChanged``
and ``SettingsAcknowledged`` events has been updated to be instances of
``SettingCodes`` whenever they correspond to a known setting code. When they
are an unknown setting code, they are instead ``int``. As ``SettingCodes`` is
a subclass of ``int``, this is non-breaking.
- Deprecated the other fields in ``h2.settings``. These will be removed in
3.0.0.
- Added an optional ``pad_length`` parameter to ``H2Connection.send_data``
to allow the user to include padding on a data frame.
- Added a new parameter to the ``h2.config.H2Configuration`` initializer which
takes a logger. This allows us to log by providing a logger that conforms
to the requirements of this module so that it can be used in different
environments.
Bugfixes
~~~~~~~~
- Correctly reject pushed request header blocks whenever they have malformed
request header blocks.
- Correctly normalize pushed request header blocks whenever they have
normalizable header fields.
- Remote peers are now allowed to send zero or any positive number as a value
for ``SETTINGS_MAX_HEADER_LIST_SIZE``, where previously sending zero would
raise a ``InvalidSettingsValueError``.
- Resolved issue where the ``HTTP2-Settings`` header value for plaintext
upgrade that was emitted by ``initiate_upgrade_connection`` included the
*entire* ``SETTINGS`` frame, instead of just the payload.
- Resolved issue where the ``HTTP2-Settings`` header value sent by a client for
plaintext upgrade would be ignored by ``initiate_upgrade_connection``, rather
than have those settings applied appropriately.
- Resolved an issue whereby certain frames received from a peer in the CLOSED
state would trigger connection errors when RFC 7540 says they should have
triggered stream errors instead. Added more detailed stream closure tracking
to ensure we don't throw away connections unnecessarily.
2.5.2 (2017-01-27)
------------------
- Resolved issue where the ``HTTP2-Settings`` header value for plaintext
upgrade that was emitted by ``initiate_upgrade_connection`` included the
*entire* ``SETTINGS`` frame, instead of just the payload.
- Resolved issue where the ``HTTP2-Settings`` header value sent by a client for
plaintext upgrade would be ignored by ``initiate_upgrade_connection``, rather
than have those settings applied appropriately.
2.4.3 (2017-01-27)
------------------
- Resolved issue where the ``HTTP2-Settings`` header value for plaintext
upgrade that was emitted by ``initiate_upgrade_connection`` included the
*entire* ``SETTINGS`` frame, instead of just the payload.
- Resolved issue where the ``HTTP2-Settings`` header value sent by a client for
plaintext upgrade would be ignored by ``initiate_upgrade_connection``, rather
than have those settings applied appropriately.
2.3.4 (2017-01-27)
------------------
- Resolved issue where the ``HTTP2-Settings`` header value for plaintext
upgrade that was emitted by ``initiate_upgrade_connection`` included the
*entire* ``SETTINGS`` frame, instead of just the payload.
- Resolved issue where the ``HTTP2-Settings`` header value sent by a client for
plaintext upgrade would be ignored by ``initiate_upgrade_connection``, rather
than have those settings applied appropriately.
2.5.1 (2016-12-17)
------------------
Bugfixes
~~~~~~~~
- Remote peers are now allowed to send zero or any positive number as a value
for ``SETTINGS_MAX_HEADER_LIST_SIZE``, where previously sending zero would
raise a ``InvalidSettingsValueError``.
2.5.0 (2016-10-25)
------------------
API Changes (Backward-Compatible)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
- Added a new ``H2Configuration`` object that allows rich configuration of
a ``H2Connection``. This object supersedes the prior keyword arguments to the
``H2Connection`` object, which are now deprecated and will be removed in 3.0.
- Added support for automated window management via the
``acknowledge_received_data`` method. See the documentation for more details.
- Added a ``DenialOfServiceError`` that is raised whenever a behaviour that
looks like a DoS attempt is encountered: for example, an overly large
decompressed header list. This is a subclass of ``ProtocolError``.
- Added support for setting and managing ``SETTINGS_MAX_HEADER_LIST_SIZE``.
This setting is now defaulted to 64kB.
- Added ``h2.errors.ErrorCodes``, an enum that is used to store all the HTTP/2
error codes. This allows us to use a better printed representation of the
error code in most places that it is used.
- The ``error_code`` fields on ``ConnectionTerminated`` and ``StreamReset``
events have been updated to be instances of ``ErrorCodes`` whenever they
correspond to a known error code. When they are an unknown error code, they
are instead ``int``. As ``ErrorCodes`` is a subclass of ``int``, this is
non-breaking.
- Deprecated the other fields in ``h2.errors``. These will be removed in 3.0.0.
Bugfixes
~~~~~~~~
- Correctly reject request header blocks with neither :authority nor Host
headers, or header blocks which contain mismatched :authority and Host
headers, per RFC 7540 Section 8.1.2.3.
- Correctly expect that responses to HEAD requests will have no body regardless
of the value of the Content-Length header, and reject those that do.
- Correctly refuse to send header blocks that contain neither :authority nor
Host headers, or header blocks which contain mismatched :authority and Host
headers, per RFC 7540 Section 8.1.2.3.
- Hyper-h2 will now reject header field names and values that contain leading
or trailing whitespace.
- Correctly strip leading/trailing whitespace from header field names and
values.
- Correctly refuse to send header blocks with a TE header whose value is not
``trailers``, per RFC 7540 Section 8.1.2.2.
- Correctly refuse to send header blocks with connection-specific headers,
per RFC 7540 Section 8.1.2.2.
- Correctly refuse to send header blocks that contain duplicate pseudo-header
fields, or with pseudo-header fields that appear after ordinary header fields,
per RFC 7540 Section 8.1.2.1.
This may cause passing a dictionary as the header block to ``send_headers``
to throw a ``ProtocolError``, because dictionaries are unordered and so they
may trip this check. Passing dictionaries here is deprecated, and callers
should change to using a sequence of 2-tuples as their header blocks.
- Correctly reject trailers that contain HTTP/2 pseudo-header fields, per RFC
7540 Section 8.1.2.1.
- Correctly refuse to send trailers that contain HTTP/2 pseudo-header fields,
per RFC 7540 Section 8.1.2.1.
- Correctly reject responses that do not contain the ``:status`` header field,
per RFC 7540 Section 8.1.2.4.
- Correctly refuse to send responses that do not contain the ``:status`` header
field, per RFC 7540 Section 8.1.2.4.
- Correctly update the maximum frame size when the user updates the value of
that setting. Prior to this release, if the user updated the maximum frame
size hyper-h2 would ignore the update, preventing the remote peer from using
the higher frame sizes.
2.4.2 (2016-10-25)
------------------
Bugfixes
~~~~~~~~
- Correctly update the maximum frame size when the user updates the value of
that setting. Prior to this release, if the user updated the maximum frame
size hyper-h2 would ignore the update, preventing the remote peer from using
the higher frame sizes.
2.3.3 (2016-10-25)
------------------
Bugfixes
~~~~~~~~
- Correctly update the maximum frame size when the user updates the value of
that setting. Prior to this release, if the user updated the maximum frame
size hyper-h2 would ignore the update, preventing the remote peer from using
the higher frame sizes.
2.2.7 (2016-10-25)
------------------
*Final 2.2.X release*
Bugfixes
~~~~~~~~
- Correctly update the maximum frame size when the user updates the value of
that setting. Prior to this release, if the user updated the maximum frame
size hyper-h2 would ignore the update, preventing the remote peer from using
the higher frame sizes.
2.4.1 (2016-08-23)
------------------
Bugfixes
~~~~~~~~
- Correctly expect that responses to HEAD requests will have no body regardless
of the value of the Content-Length header, and reject those that do.
2.3.2 (2016-08-23)
------------------
Bugfixes
~~~~~~~~
- Correctly expect that responses to HEAD requests will have no body regardless
of the value of the Content-Length header, and reject those that do.
2.4.0 (2016-07-01)
------------------
API Changes (Backward-Compatible)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
- Adds ``additional_data`` to ``H2Connection.close_connection``, allowing the
user to send additional debug data on the GOAWAY frame.
- Adds ``last_stream_id`` to ``H2Connection.close_connection``, allowing the
user to manually control what the reported last stream ID is.
- Add new method: ``prioritize``.
- Add support for emitting stream priority information when sending headers
frames using three new keyword arguments: ``priority_weight``,
``priority_depends_on``, and ``priority_exclusive``.
- Add support for "related events": events that fire simultaneously on a single
frame.
2.3.1 (2016-05-12)
------------------
Bugfixes
~~~~~~~~
- Resolved ``AttributeError`` encountered when receiving more than one sequence
of CONTINUATION frames on a given connection.
2.2.5 (2016-05-12)
------------------
Bugfixes
~~~~~~~~
- Resolved ``AttributeError`` encountered when receiving more than one sequence
of CONTINUATION frames on a given connection.
2.3.0 (2016-04-26)
------------------
API Changes (Backward-Compatible)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
- Added a new flag to the ``H2Connection`` constructor: ``header_encoding``,
that controls what encoding is used (if any) to decode the headers from bytes
to unicode. This defaults to UTF-8 for backward compatibility. To disable the
decode and use bytes exclusively, set the field to False, None, or the empty
string. This affects all headers, including those pushed by servers.
- Bumped the minimum version of HPACK allowed from 2.0 to 2.2.
- Added support for advertising RFC 7838 Alternative services.
- Allowed users to provide ``hpack.HeaderTuple`` and
``hpack.NeverIndexedHeaderTuple`` objects to all methods that send headers.
- Changed all events that carry headers to emit ``hpack.HeaderTuple`` and
``hpack.NeverIndexedHeaderTuple`` instead of plain tuples. This allows users
to maintain header indexing state.
- Added support for plaintext upgrade with the ``initiate_upgrade_connection``
method.
Bugfixes
~~~~~~~~
- Automatically ensure that all ``Authorization`` and ``Proxy-Authorization``
headers, as well as short ``Cookie`` headers, are prevented from being added
to encoding contexts.
2.2.4 (2016-04-25)
------------------
Bugfixes
~~~~~~~~
- Correctly forbid pseudo-headers that were not defined in RFC 7540.
- Ignore AltSvc frames, rather than exploding when receiving them.
2.1.5 (2016-04-25)
------------------
*Final 2.1.X release*
Bugfixes
~~~~~~~~
- Correctly forbid pseudo-headers that were not defined in RFC 7540.
- Ignore AltSvc frames, rather than exploding when receiving them.
2.2.3 (2016-04-13)
------------------
Bugfixes
~~~~~~~~
- Allowed the 4.X series of hyperframe releases as dependencies.
2.1.4 (2016-04-13)
------------------
Bugfixes
~~~~~~~~
- Allowed the 4.X series of hyperframe releases as dependencies.
2.2.2 (2016-04-05)
------------------
Bugfixes
~~~~~~~~
- Fixed issue where informational responses were erroneously not allowed to be
sent in the ``HALF_CLOSED_REMOTE`` state.
- Fixed issue where informational responses were erroneously not allowed to be
received in the ``HALF_CLOSED_LOCAL`` state.
- Fixed issue where we allowed information responses to be sent or received
after final responses.
2.2.1 (2016-03-23)
------------------
Bugfixes
~~~~~~~~
- Fixed issue where users using locales that did not default to UTF-8 were
unable to install source distributions of the package.
2.2.0 (2016-03-23)
------------------
API Changes (Backward-Compatible)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
- Added support for sending informational responses (responses with 1XX status)
codes as part of the standard flow. HTTP/2 allows zero or more informational
responses with no upper limit: hyper-h2 does too.
- Added support for receiving informational responses (responses with 1XX
status) codes as part of the standard flow. HTTP/2 allows zero or more
informational responses with no upper limit: hyper-h2 does too.
- Added a new event: ``ReceivedInformationalResponse``. This response is fired
when informational responses (those with 1XX status codes).
- Added an ``additional_data`` field to the ``ConnectionTerminated`` event that
carries any additional data sent on the GOAWAY frame. May be ``None`` if no
such data was sent.
- Added the ``initial_values`` optional argument to the ``Settings`` object.
Bugfixes
~~~~~~~~
- Correctly reject all of the connection-specific headers mentioned in RFC 7540
§ 8.1.2.2, not just the ``Connection:`` header.
- Defaulted the value of ``SETTINGS_MAX_CONCURRENT_STREAMS`` to 100, unless
explicitly overridden. This is a safe defensive initial value for this
setting.
2.1.3 (2016-03-16)
------------------
Deprecations
~~~~~~~~~~~~
- Passing dictionaries to ``send_headers`` as the header block is deprecated,
and will be removed in 3.0.
2.1.2 (2016-02-17)
------------------
Bugfixes
~~~~~~~~
- Reject attempts to push streams on streams that were themselves pushed:
streams can only be pushed on streams that were initiated by the client.
- Correctly allow CONTINUATION frames to extend the header block started by a
PUSH_PROMISE frame.
- Changed our handling of frames received on streams that were reset by the
user.
Previously these would, at best, cause ProtocolErrors to be raised and the
connection to be torn down (rather defeating the point of resetting streams
at all) and, at worst, would cause subtle inconsistencies in state between
hyper-h2 and the remote peer that could lead to header block decoding errors
or flow control blockages.
Now when the user resets a stream all further frames received on that stream
are ignored except where they affect some form of connection-level state,
where they have their effect and are then ignored.
- Fixed a bug whereby receiving a PUSH_PROMISE frame on a stream that was
closed would cause a RST_STREAM frame to be emitted on the closed-stream,
but not the newly-pushed one. Now this causes a ``ProtocolError``.
2.1.1 (2016-02-05)
------------------
Bugfixes
~~~~~~~~
- Added debug representations for all events.
- Fixed problems with setup.py that caused trouble on older setuptools/pip
installs.
2.1.0 (2016-02-02)
------------------
API Changes (Backward-Compatible)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
- Added new field to ``DataReceived``: ``flow_controlled_length``. This is the
length of the frame including padded data, allowing users to correctly track
changes to the flow control window.
- Defined new ``UnsupportedFrameError``, thrown when frames that are known to
hyperframe but not supported by hyper-h2 are received. For
backward-compatibility reasons, this is a ``ProtocolError`` *and* a
``KeyError``.
Bugfixes
~~~~~~~~
- Hyper-h2 now correctly accounts for padding when maintaining flow control
windows.
- Resolved a bug where hyper-h2 would mistakenly apply
SETTINGS_INITIAL_WINDOW_SIZE to the connection flow control window in
addition to the stream-level flow control windows.
- Invalid Content-Length headers now throw ``ProtocolError`` exceptions and
correctly tear the connection down, instead of leaving the connection in an
indeterminate state.
- Invalid header blocks now throw ``ProtocolError``, rather than a grab bag of
possible other exceptions.
2.0.0 (2016-01-25)
------------------
API Changes (Breaking)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
- Attempts to open streams with invalid stream IDs, either by the remote peer
or by the user, are now rejected as a ``ProtocolError``. Previously these
were allowed, and would cause remote peers to error.
- Receiving frames that have invalid padding now causes the connection to be
terminated with a ``ProtocolError`` being raised. Previously these passed
undetected.
- Settings values set by both the user and the remote peer are now validated
when they're set. If they're invalid, a new ``InvalidSettingsValueError`` is
raised and, if set by the remote peer, a connection error is signaled.
Previously, it was possible to set invalid values. These would either be
caught when building frames, or would be allowed to stand.
- Settings changes no longer require user action to be acknowledged: hyper-h2
acknowledges them automatically. This moves the location where some
exceptions may be thrown, and also causes the ``acknowledge_settings`` method
to be removed from the public API.
- Removed a number of methods on the ``H2Connection`` object from the public,
semantically versioned API, by renaming them to have leading underscores.
Specifically, removed:
- ``get_stream_by_id``
- ``get_or_create_stream``
- ``begin_new_stream``
- ``receive_frame``
- ``acknowledge_settings``
- Added full support for receiving CONTINUATION frames, including policing
logic about when and how they are received. Previously, receiving
CONTINUATION frames was not supported and would throw exceptions.
- All public API functions on ``H2Connection`` except for ``receive_data`` no
longer return lists of events, because these lists were always empty. Events
are now only raised by ``receive_data``.
- Calls to ``increment_flow_control_window`` with out of range values now raise
``ValueError`` exceptions. Previously they would be allowed, or would cause
errors when serializing frames.
API Changes (Backward-Compatible)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
- Added ``PriorityUpdated`` event for signaling priority changes.
- Added ``get_next_available_stream_id`` function.
- Receiving DATA frames on streams not in the OPEN or HALF_CLOSED_LOCAL states
now causes a stream reset, rather than a connection reset. The error is now
also classified as a ``StreamClosedError``, rather than a more generic
``ProtocolError``.
- Receiving HEADERS or PUSH_PROMISE frames in the HALF_CLOSED_REMOTE state now
causes a stream reset, rather than a connection reset.
- Receiving frames that violate the max frame size now causes connection errors
with error code FRAME_SIZE_ERROR, not a generic PROTOCOL_ERROR. This
condition now also raises a ``FrameTooLargeError``, a new subclass of
``ProtocolError``.
- Made ``NoSuchStreamError`` a subclass of ``ProtocolError``.
- The ``StreamReset`` event is now also fired whenever a protocol error from
the remote peer forces a stream to close early. This is only fired once.
- The ``StreamReset`` event now carries a flag, ``remote_reset``, that is set
to ``True`` in all cases where ``StreamReset`` would previously have fired
(e.g. when the remote peer sent a RST_STREAM), and is set to ``False`` when
it fires because the remote peer made a protocol error.
- Hyper-h2 now rejects attempts by peers to increment a flow control window by
zero bytes.
- Hyper-h2 now rejects peers sending header blocks that are ill-formed for a
number of reasons as set out in RFC 7540 Section 8.1.2.
- Attempting to send non-PRIORITY frames on closed streams now raises
``StreamClosedError``.
- Remote peers attempting to increase the flow control window beyond
``2**31 - 1``, either by window increment or by settings frame, are now
rejected as ``ProtocolError``.
- Local attempts to increase the flow control window beyond ``2**31 - 1`` by
window increment are now rejected as ``ProtocolError``.
- The bytes that represent individual settings are now available in
``h2.settings``, instead of needing users to import them from hyperframe.
Bugfixes
~~~~~~~~
- RFC 7540 requires that a separate minimum stream ID be used for inbound and
outbound streams. Hyper-h2 now obeys this requirement.
- Hyper-h2 now does a better job of reporting the last stream ID it has
partially handled when terminating connections.
- Fixed an error in the arguments of ``StreamIDTooLowError``.
- Prevent ``ValueError`` leaking from Hyperframe.
- Prevent ``struct.error`` and ``InvalidFrameError`` leaking from Hyperframe.
1.1.1 (2015-11-17)
------------------
Bugfixes
~~~~~~~~
- Forcibly lowercase all header names to improve compatibility with
implementations that demand lower-case header names.
1.1.0 (2015-10-28)
------------------
API Changes (Backward-Compatible)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
- Added a new ``ConnectionTerminated`` event, which fires when GOAWAY frames
are received.
- Added a subclass of ``NoSuchStreamError``, called ``StreamClosedError``, that
fires when actions are taken on a stream that is closed and has had its state
flushed from the system.
- Added ``StreamIDTooLowError``, raised when the user or the remote peer
attempts to create a stream with an ID lower than one previously used in the
dialog. Inherits from ``ValueError`` for backward-compatibility reasons.
Bugfixes
~~~~~~~~
- Do not throw ``ProtocolError`` when attempting to send multiple GOAWAY
frames on one connection.
- We no longer forcefully change the decoder table size when settings changes
are ACKed, instead waiting for remote acknowledgement of the change.
- Improve the performance of checking whether a stream is open.
- We now attempt to lazily garbage collect closed streams, to avoid having the
state hang around indefinitely, leaking memory.
- Avoid further per-stream allocations, leading to substantial performance
improvements when many short-lived streams are used.
1.0.0 (2015-10-15)
------------------
- First production release!
