Hello,

We have just released Psycopg 2.8.2; a few days ago Psycopg 2.8.1 was released.

Some of the bugs addressed are ordinary teething problem with the 2.8 release, but an important change landed with 2.8.2: binary packages now ship with OpenSSL 1.1 instead of 1.0. This should fix concurrency problems on connection experienced both on Windows and Linux. Many thanks to Matthew Brett and Jason Erickson for this improvement!

The combined list of changes is:

  • Fixed "there's no async cursor" error polling a connection with no cursor (ticket #887).
  • Fixed RealDictCursor when there are repeated columns (ticket #884).
  • Fixed RealDictRow modifiability (ticket #886).
  • Binary packages built with OpenSSL 1.1.1b. Should fix concurrency problems (ticket #543, ticket #836).

Happy hacking!
