Functionality Added or Changed

  * Connector/Python is now compatible with Django 1.8. (Bug
    #76752, Bug #20987205)

Bugs Fixed

  * When using the C Extension with raise_on_warnings=True,
    errors were not thrown as exceptions when an executed
    statement produced an error, and it was not possible to
    reuse the cursor if the statement produced a result set.
    (Bug #21536507)

  * When using the C Extension, character decoding of
    identifiers (database, table, column names) in result
    sets could fail. (Bug #21535573)

  * When using the C Extension with the auth_plugin option,
    connect() calls failed. (Bug #21529781)

  * In connections for which consume_results=True, callproc()
    could hang. (Bug #21492815)

  * Connections failed if the password began or ended with
    spaces because they were being stripped before the
    connection attempt. (Bug #21492428)

  * Connection failure occurred for accounts authenticated
    with the sha256_password authentication plugin that had a
    blank password. (Bug #21420906)

  * The Connector/Python C Extension could exit when fetching
    a result set containing many NULL values. (Bug #21420633)

  * Connector/Python failed to complete the connection
    handshake with MySQL Server 5.5.8. (Bug #21090014)

  * RPM packages of Connector/Python were missing some
    required __init_py__ files. (Bug #77819, Bug #21505096)

  * Connector/Python hung until timeout if the query it was
    running was killed. (Bug #76156, Bug #20653441)

  * Writing to a table with a BinaryField from Django
    resulted in a UnicodeDecodeError exception. (Bug #75175,
    Bug #21054559)

  * Stripping NoneType objects from Django resulted in an
    AttributeError exception. (Bug #74675, Bug #21054556)
