2.0.1 - 2017-07-20

  • Disable SNI related SSL warnings from urllib3 when running the CLI tool on Python 2.6. This can still be enabled with the --enable-platform-warnings switch if desired by the caller.

2.0.0 - 2017-06-29

  • Breaking change - The Warthog library now only supports v3 of the A10 load balancer REST API. If you need to interact with a load balancer that uses v2 of the A10 REST API you are advised to use Warthog 1.1.0.
  • Breaking change - Removed the wait_interval parameter from warthog.client.WarthogClient. This setting can now be specified directly for calls to enable_node and disable_node methods.
  • Breaking change - Removed WarthogAuthCloseError, WarthogNodeDisableError, WarthogNodeEnableError. Places where these exceptions were previously raised will now raise warthog.exceptions.WarthogApiError.
  • Network operations are now retried on transient errors per #17.

1.999.2 - 2017-06-28


This version is only meant to be used internally at SmarterTravel as a transition step between two load balancers. As such, it is not available on PyPI.

  • Rename warthog.core3 to warthog.core
  • Remove deprecated exceptions in warthog.exceptions: WarthogAuthCloseError, WarthogNodeDisableError, WarthogNodeEnableError.

1.999.1 - 2017-04-06


This version is only meant to be used internally at SmarterTravel as a transition step between two load balancers. As such, it is not available on PyPI.

  • Add support for new Python SSL constant PROTOCOL_TLS to allow negotiation of SSL versions between the client and server.

1.999.0 - 2017-04-05


This version is only meant to be used internally at SmarterTravel as a transition step between two load balancers. As such, it is not available on PyPI.

  • Add new warthog.core3 module for support of A10 V3 APIs in parallel with the existing core module as a transition to the new API per #8.
  • Make sure to pass ssl_version to client created in CLI tool per #9.
  • Default to use of TLS version 1.2 when not otherwise specified.

1.1.0 - 2016-01-21

  • Disable InsecurePlatformWarning from urllib3 by default for the CLI client since this makes it unusable CentOS / Red Hat 6. This warning can be re-enabled for the CLI client with the --enable-platform-warning flag. Note that this does not change the behavior of the Warthog library at all, only the CLI client. Fixes #5.

1.0.0 - 2015-12-21

  • This is the first stable release of Warthog. From this point on, all breaking changes will only be made in major version releases. This release is functionally the same as the 0.10.0 release.

0.10.0 - 2015-10-05

  • Add option to warthog.client.WarthogClient to allow alternate SSL or TLS versions to be used easily. Fixes #6.
  • Breaking change - Passing a None value to warthog.transport.get_transport_factory() for the ssl_version parameter will now use the Warthog library default (TLSv1) instead of letting requests/urllib3 pick the default.
  • Add support for specifying an optional ssl_version parameter in INI configuration files. Fixes #4.
  • Change verify to be optional in INI configuration files.

0.9.1 - 2015-08-07

  • Fix bug where a config file needed to be specified by the CLI client even when not required (such as when displaying help). Fixes #3.

0.9.0 - 2015-06-04

  • Replace examples documentation with more in depth usage guide (Usage).
  • Add documentation for performing a release of the library (Releasing).
  • Move enabling/disabling certificate verification to the warthog.client.WarthogClient class so that using self-signed certificates is less of a hassle and requires less code.

0.8.3 - 2015-03-18

  • Dependency on requests updated to version 2.6.0.
  • Packaging fixes (use twine for uploads to PyPI, stop using the register command).
  • Minor documentation updates.

0.8.2 - 2015-02-09

  • Small documentation fixes.
  • Add project logo to documentation.
  • Dependency on requests updated to version 2.5.1.

0.8.1 - 2014-12-22

  • Fixed small documentation issues and changed change log dates.

0.8.0 - 2014-12-22

  • Breaking change - Changed errors raised by warthog.config.WarthogConfigLoader to be subclasses of warthog.exceptions.WarthogConfigError instead of using errors from the standard library (ValueError, IOError, RuntimeError).
  • Breaking change - Removed the warthog.client.WarthogClient.disabled_context context manager method since the level of abstraction didn’t match the rest of the methods in the client.
  • Breaking change - Removed all command classes in warthog.core from the public API (warthog.api). Users wishing to use them may do so at their own risk.
  • Change all server-specific exceptions to be based on warthog.exceptions.WarthogNodeError.
  • Improve error handling for CLI client when the configuration file contains an invalid load balancer host (or port, etc.).
  • Bundled 3rd-party libs moved to the warthog.packages package.
  • Dependency on requests updated to version 2.5.0.

0.7.0 - 2014-11-24

0.6.0 - 2014-11-20

  • Breaking change - Removed warthog.config.WarthogConfigLoader.parse_configuration() method and split the functionality into two new methods. Additionally, the class is now thread safe.
  • Renamed “Usage” documentation section to “Examples”.

0.5.0 - 2014-11-03

  • Breaking change - Changed all command .send() methods in warthog.core to not take any arguments to given them a consistent interface.
  • Examples documentation improvements.
  • Various code quality improvements.

0.4.2 - 2014-10-29

  • Documentation improvements (Development).

  • Changed script to not require setuptools.

0.3.0 - 2014-10-16

  • Added Install documentation.
  • Changed authentication request (warthog.core.SessionStartCommand) to use POST instead of GET though there doesn’t seem to be any actual difference as far as the load balancer API is concerned.

0.2.0 - 2014-10-14

  • Added Design, Examples, and Library documentation.
  • Added test to ensure exported API is consistent.

0.1.0 - 2014-10-11
