2.1.7 Release Notes

Channels 2.1.7 is another bugfix release in the 2.1 series, and the last release (at least for a long while) with Andrew Godwin as the primary maintainer.

Thanks to everyone who has used, supported, and contributed to Channels over the years, and I hope we can keep it going with community support for a good while longer.

Bugfixes & Small Changes

  • HTTP request body size limit is now enforced (the one set by the DATA_UPLOAD_MAX_MEMORY_SIZE setting)

  • database_sync_to_async now closes old connections before it runs code, which should prevent some connection errors in long-running pages or tests.

  • The auth middleware closes old connections before it runs, to solve similar old-connection issues.
