Release Notes

v2.0.0-beta.8

v2.0.0-beta.7

Released March 24, 2019

  • Fixed an issue that caused custom types containing capital letters to be unparseable.
  • Removed PyPy support.
  • Added Python 3.7 support.

v2.0.0-beta.6

  • Added the grammar module to the public API. See Grammar.
  • Updated string API for the ABIType. Type strings for ABIType instances are now obtained via the to_type_str() method instead of by invoking the builtin Python str function with an instance of ABIType.

v2.0.0-beta.5

v2.0.0-beta.4

  • Update eth-typing requirement to >=2.0.0,<3.0.0.

v2.0.0-beta.3

  • Added codec API to facilitate use of custom registries. See Codecs.

v2.0.0-beta.2

Released October 16, 2018

  • Bugfixes
    • Was accidentally allowing eth-typing v2. Now it requires eth-typing v1 only.

v2.0.0-beta.1

  • New Features
    • Added support for nested dynamic arrays from the Solidity version 2 ABI
    • Added support for non-standard packed mode encoding
    • Added support for tuple array types e.g. (int,int)[]
  • Backwards Incompatible Changes
    • The encode_single() and decode_single() functions no longer accept type tuples to identify ABI types. Only type strings are accepted.
    • The collapse_type() function has been removed. People who still wish to use this function should replicate its logic locally and where needed.
    • The process_type() function has been removed in favor of the parse() function. This should make the parsing API more consistent with the new parsimonious parser.

v2.0.0-alpha.1

Released July 19, 2018

  • Backwards Incompatible Changes
    • decode_single() called with ABI type ‘string’ will now return a python str instead of bytes.
    • Support for the legacy real and ureal types has been removed
  • Bugfixes
    • Simple callable encoders work again
  • Misc
    • Various documentation updates and type annotations

v1.3.0

Released December 6, 2018

  • Bugfixes
    • Resolved an issue that was preventing discovery of type hints.
  • Misc
    • Updated eth-typing dependency version to >=2.0.0,<3.0.0.

v1.2.2

Released October 18, 2018

  • Bugfixes
    • Expand parsimonious dependency from v0.8.0 to v0.8.*

v1.2.1

Released October 16, 2018

  • Bugfixes
    • Was accidentally allowing eth-typing v2. Now it requires eth-typing v1 only. (backport from v2)

v1.2.0

Released August 28, 2018

  • New Features
    • Backported and added support for nested dynamic arrays from the Solidity version 2 ABI

v1.1.1

Released May 10, 2018

  • Bugfixes
    • is_encodable() now returns False if a Decimal has too many digits to be encoded in the given fixed<M>x<N> type. (It was previously raising a ValueError)
    • Raise an EncodingTypeError instead of a TypeError when trying to encode a float into a fixed<M>x<N> type.

v1.1.0

Released May 8, 2018

  • New Features
    • Added a Registry API (docs in progress) for looking up encoders by ABI type
    • Added support for types: tuple and fixedMxN
    • Added new is_encodable check for whether a value can be encoded with the given ABI type
  • Bugfixes
    • Fix RealDecoder bug that allowed values other than 32 bytes
    • Fix bug that accepted stringN as a valid ABI type. Strings may not have a fixed length.
    • Stricter value checking when encoding a Decimal (Make sure it’s not a NaN)
    • Fix typos in “missing property” exceptions
  • Misc
    • Precompile regexes, for performance & clarity
    • Test fixups and switch to CircleCI
    • Readme improvements
    • Performance improvements
