ElasticUtils v0.7 released!

What is it?

ElasticUtils is a Python library for building and executing Elasticsearch searches.

v0.7 released!

Turns out I haven't announced an ElasticUtils release since August 2012. Why? Partially because up until now, I always had deep-seated problems with ElasticUtils and wasn't excited about announcing yet another version with things I disliked in it.

I feel really good about v0.7 for a variety of reasons. Let me tell you some of them:

  1. We switched from pyes to pyelasticsearch. I'm really happy with this.

  2. There was a monumental effort to fix sharp edges in the API, generalize bits that needed generalizing, improve the quality of the software, improve the test suite, improve the docs, ...

    Doing a git diff --stat tells me:

    65 files changed, 6164 insertions(+), 2716 deletions(-)
    

    That's a lot of change for a small project like this.

If you're using ElasticUtils, I highly encourage you to update to v0.7. We're using it on Input and Support already.

For the complete list of what's new, What's new in Version 0.7.
