Changelog ========= v1.3 (in development) --------------------- - Backend now supports returning the ID from an insert without needing an additional query. This is disabled for SQL Server 2000 (assuming that version still works with this backend). :issue:`17` - Subqueries will have their ordering removed because SQL Server only supports it when using TOP or FOR XML. This relies upon the ``with_col_aliases`` argument to ``SQLCompiler.as_sql`` only being ``True`` when the query is a subquery, which is currently the case for all usages in Django 1.5 master. :issue:`18` v1.2 ---- - Ensure master connection connects to the correct database name when TEST_NAME is not defined. - Connection.close() will now reset adoConn to make sure it's gone before the CoUninitialize. - Changed provider default from 'SQLOLEDB' to 'SQLNCLI10' with MARS enabled. - Added :ref:`rawstoredproceduremanager`, which provides ``raw_callproc`` that works the same as ``raw``, except expects the name of a stored procedure that returns a result set that matches the model. - Documented known issue with database introspection with ``DEBUG = True`` and column names containing '%'. See :ref:`introspecting-percent-columns`. - Fixed error with `iendswith` string format operator. v1.1 ---- - Updated SQLInsertCompiler to work with Django 1.4 - Added support for ``disable_constraint_checking``, which is required for ``loaddata`` to work properly. - Implemented ``DatabaseOperations.date_interval_sql`` to allow using expressions like ``end__lte=F('start')+delta``. - Fixed date part extraction for ``week_day``. - DatabaseWrapper reports vendor as 'microsoft'. - AVG function now matches core backend behaviors and will auto-cast to ``float``, instead of maintaining datatype. Set database ``OPTIONS`` setting ``disable_avg_cast`` to turn off the auto-cast behavior. - StdDev and Variance aggregate functions are now supported and will map to the proper MSSQL named functions. Includes work around for :djangoticket:`18334`. - Monkey patched ``django.db.backends.util.CursorWrapper`` to allow using cursors as ContextManagers in Python 2.7. :djangoticket:`17671`.
