What’s new in Tornado 4.0.2

Sept 10, 2014

Bug fixes

  • Fixed a bug that could sometimes cause a timeout to fire after being cancelled.
  • AsyncTestCase once again passes along arguments to test methods, making it compatible with extensions such as Nose’s test generators.
  • StaticFileHandler can again compress its responses when gzip is enabled.
  • simple_httpclient passes its max_buffer_size argument to the underlying stream.
  • Fixed a reference cycle that can lead to increased memory consumption.
  • add_accept_handler will now limit the number of times it will call accept per IOLoop iteration, addressing a potential starvation issue.
  • Improved error handling in IOStream.connect (primarily for FreeBSD systems)
