Wed Nov 12 09:57:50 UTC 2014 -

- Update to version 3.1.16
  + Worker: 3.1.15 broke -Ofair behavior (Issue #2286).
  + Canvas: celery.signature now properly forwards app argument in all cases.
  + Task: .retry() did not raise the exception correctly when called without a current exception.
  + Worker: The enable_events remote control command disabled worker-related events by mistake (Issue #2272).
  + Django: Adds support for Django 1.7 class names in INSTALLED_APPS when using app.autodiscover_tasks() (Issue #2248).
  + Redis/Cache Backends: Chords will now run at most once if one or more tasks in the chord are executed multiple times for some reason.

Sun Dec  1 16:36:56 UTC 2013 -

- Update to version 3.1.1
  + Now depends Kombu 3.0.6
  + Now depends on billiard
  + App: ``config_from_object`` is now lazy
  + App: ``autodiscover_tasks`` is now lazy
    Django users should now wrap access to the settings object in
    a lambda:
       app.autodiscover_tasks(lambda: settings.INSTALLED_APPS)
    this ensures that the settings object is not prepared
  + Fixed regression for ``--app`` argument experienced by
    some users
  + Worker: Now respects the ``--uid`` and ``--gid`` arguments
    even if ``--detach`` is not enabled
  + Beat: Now respects the ``--uid`` and ``--gid`` arguments
    even if ``--detach`` is not enabled
  + Python 3: Fixed unorderable error occuring with the worker ``-B``
    argument enabled
  + ``celery.VERSION`` is now a named tuple
  + ``maybe_signature(list)`` is now applied recursively
  + ``celery shell`` command: Fixed ``IPython.frontend`` deprecation warning

       to load the Django settings module before entering
       the target working directory
  + The Django daemonization tutorial was changed
       Users no longer have to explicitly export ``DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE``
       in :file:`/etc/default/celeryd` when the new project layout is used
  + Redis result backend: expiry value can now be 0 
  + Censoring settings now accounts for non-string keys
  + App: New ``autofinalize`` option
       Apps are automatically finalized when the task registry is accessed.
       You can now disable this behavior so that an exception is raised
  + The worker did not send monitoring events during shutdown
  + Worker: Mingle and gossip is now automatically disabled when
    used with an unsupported transport
  + ``celery`` command: Preload options now supports
    the rare ``--opt value`` format

    even if received before startup is complete
  + :signal:`task_postrun` is now sent within a finally block, to make
    sure the signal is always sent
  + Beat: Fixed syntax error in string formatting
  + Fixed typos in the documentation
  + Nested chains now works properly when constructed using the
    ``chain`` type instead of the ``|`` operator

Thu Oct 24 10:59:40 UTC 2013 -

- Require python-setuptools instead of distribute (upstreams merged)

Wed Sep 25 19:03:47 UTC 2013 -

- Update to version 3.0.23
  + Now depends on :ref:`Kombu 2.5.14 <kombu:version-2.5.14>`.
  + ``send_task`` did not honor ``link`` and ``link_error`` arguments.
    This had the side effect of chains not calling unregistered tasks,
    silently discarding them.
  + :mod:`celery.state`: Optimized precedence lookup.
  + Posix: Daemonization did not redirect ``sys.stdin`` to ``/dev/null``.
  + Canvas: group bug caused fallback to default app when ``.apply_async`` used
    (Issue #1516)

- Use source url as source

Tue Apr 30 19:34:54 UTC 2013 -

- Update to 3.0.19:
  - Now depends on billiard
  - A Python 3 related fix managed to disable the deadlock fix
    announced in 3.0.18.
    Tests have been added to make sure this does not happen again.
  - Task retry policy: Default max_retries is now 3.
    This ensures clients will not be hanging while the broker is down.
        You can set a longer retry for the worker by
        using the celeryd_after_setup signal:
            from celery.signals import celeryd_after_setup

            def configure_worker(instance, conf, **kwargs):
                conf.CELERY_TASK_PUBLISH_RETRY_POLICY = {
                    'max_retries': 100,
                    'interval_start': 0,
                    'interval_max': 1,
                    'interval_step': 0.2,
  - Worker: Will now properly display message body in error messages
    even if the body is a buffer instance.
  - 3.0.18 broke the MongoDB result backend (Issue #1303).

Fri Apr 12 17:52:35 UTC 2013 -

- Update to 3.0.18:
  - Now depends on kombu 2.5.10.
    See the kombu changelog.
  - Now depends on billiard
  - Can now specify a whitelist of accepted serializers using
    the new CELERY_ACCEPT_CONTENT setting.
    This means that you can force the worker to discard messages
    serialized with pickle and other untrusted serializers.
    For example to only allow JSON serialized messages use::
        CELERY_ACCEPT_CONTENT = ['json']
    you can also specify MIME types in the whitelist::
        CELERY_ACCEPT_CONTENT = ['application/json']
  - Fixed deadlock in multiprocessing's pool caused by the
    semaphore not being released when terminated by signal.
  - Processes Pool: It's now possible to debug pool processes using GDB.
  - celery report now censors possibly secret settings, like passwords
    and secret tokens.
    You should still check the output before pasting anything
    on the internet.
  - Connection URLs now ignore multiple '+' tokens.
  - Worker/statedb: Now uses pickle protocol 2 (Py2.5+)
  - Fixed Python 3 compatibility issues.
  - Worker:  A warning is now given if a worker is started with the
    same node name as an existing worker.
  - Worker: Fixed a deadlock that could occur while revoking tasks (Issue #1297).
  - Worker: The :sig:`HUP` handler now closes all open file descriptors
    before restarting to ensure file descriptors does not leak (Issue #1270).
  - Worker: Optimized storing/loading the revoked tasks list (Issue #1289).
    After this change the --statedb file will take up more disk space,
    but loading from and storing the revoked tasks will be considerably
    faster (what before took 5 minutes will now take less than a second).
  - Celery will now suggest alternatives if there's a typo in the
    broker transport name (e.g. ampq -> amqp).
  - Worker: The auto-reloader would cause a crash if a monitored file
    was unlinked.
    Fix contributed by Agris Ameriks.
  - Fixed AsyncResult pickling error.
    Fix contributed by Thomas Minor.
  - Fixed handling of Unicode in logging output when using log colors
    (Issue #427).
  - is now a MutableMapping.
    Contributed by Aaron Harnly.
  - Fixed memory leak in LRU cache implementation.
    Fix contributed by Romuald Brunet.
  - celery.contrib.rdb: Now works when sockets are in non-blocking mode.
    Fix contributed by Theo Spears.
  - The inspect reserved remote control command included active (started) tasks
    with the reserved tasks (Issue #1030).
  - The task_failure signal received a modified traceback object
    meant for pickling purposes, this has been fixed so that it now
    receives the real traceback instead.
  - The @task decorator silently ignored positional arguments,
    it now raises the expected TypeError instead (Issue #1125).
  - The worker will now properly handle messages with invalid
    eta/expires fields (Issue #1232).
  - The pool_restart remote control command now reports
    an error if the CELERYD_POOL_RESTARTS setting is not set.
  - celery.conf.add_defaults can now be used with non-dict objects.
  - Fixed compatibility problems in the Proxy class (Issue #1087).
    The class attributes __module__, __name__ and __doc__
    are now meaningful string objects.
    Thanks to Marius Gedminas.
  - MongoDB Backend: The MONGODB_BACKEND_SETTINGS setting
    now accepts a option key that lets you forward arbitrary kwargs
    to the underlying pymongo.Connection object (Issue #1015).
  - Beat: The daily backend cleanup task is no longer enabled
    for result backends that support automatic result expiration (Issue #1031).
  - Canvas list operations now takes application instance from the first
    task in the list, instead of depending on the current_app (Issue #1249).
  - Worker: Message decoding error log message now includes traceback
  - Worker: The startup banner now includes system platform.
  - celery inspect|status|control now gives an error if used
    with an SQL based broker transport.
- Aditional changes from 3.0.17:
  - Now depends on kombu 2.5.8
  - Now depends on billiard
  - RabbitMQ/Redis: thread-less and lock-free rate-limit implementation.
    This means that rate limits pose minimal overhead when used with
    RabbitMQ/Redis or future transports using the eventloop,
    and that the rate-limit implementation is now thread-less and lock-free.
    The thread-based transports will still use the old implementation for
    now, but the plan is to use the timer also for other
    broker transports in Celery 3.1.
  - Rate limits now works with eventlet/gevent if using RabbitMQ/Redis as the
  - A regression caused task.retry to ignore additional keyword arguments.
    Extra keyword arguments are now used as execution options again.
    Fix contributed by Simon Engledew.
  - Windows: Fixed problem with the worker trying to pickle the Django settings
    module at worker startup.
  - generic-init.d:  No longer double quotes $CELERYD_CHDIR (Issue #1235).
  - generic-init.d: Removes bash-specific syntax.
    Fix contributed by Pär Wieslander.
  - Cassandra Result Backend: Now handles the
    pycassa.AllServersUnavailable error (Issue #1010).
    Fix contributed by Jared Biel.
  - Result: Now properly forwards apps to GroupResults when deserializing
    (Issue #1249).
    Fix contributed by Charles-Axel Dein.
  - GroupResult.revoke now supports the terminate and signal
    keyword arguments.
  - Worker: Multiprocessing pool workers now import task modules/configuration
    before setting up the logging system so that logging signals can be
    connected before they're dispatched.
  - chord:  The AsyncResult instance returned now has its parent
    attribute set to the header GroupResult.
    This is consistent with how chain works.

  - execv is now disabled by default.
    It was causing too many problems for users, you can still enable
    it using the CELERYD_FORCE_EXECV setting.
    execv was only enabled when transports other than amqp/redis was used,
    and it's there to prevent deadlocks caused by mutexes not being released
    before the process forks.  Sadly it also changes the environment
    introducing many corner case bugs that is hard to fix without adding
    horrible hacks.  Deadlock issues are reported far less often than the
    bugs that execv are causing, so we now disable it by default.
    Work is in motion to create non-blocking versions of these transports
    so that execv is not necessary (which is the situation with the amqp
    and redis broker transports)
  - Chord exception behavior defined (Issue #1172).
    From Celery 3.1 the chord callback will change state to FAILURE
    when a task part of a chord raises an exception.
    It was never documented what happens in this case,
    and the actual behavior was very unsatisfactory, indeed
    it will just forward the exception value to the chord callback.
    For backward compatibility reasons we do not change to the new
    behavior in a bugfix release, even if the current behavior was
    never documented.  Instead you can enable the
    CELERY_CHORD_PROPAGATES setting to get the new behavior
    that will be default from Celery 3.1.

- Update to 3.0.13:
  - Now depends on Kombu 2.5
    - py-amqp has replaced amqplib as the default transport,
      gaining support for AMQP 0.9, and the RabbitMQ extensions
      including Consumer Cancel Notifications and heartbeats.
    - support for multiple connection URLs for failover.
    - Read more in the Kombu 2.5 changelog.
  - Now depends on billiard
  - Fixed a deadlock issue that could occur when the producer pool
    inherited the connection pool instance of the parent process.
  - The --loader option now works again (Issue #1066).
  - celery umbrella command: All subcommands now supports
    the --workdir option (Issue #1063).
  - Groups included in chains now give GroupResults (Issue #1057)
    Previously it would incorrectly add a regular result instead of a group
    result, but now this works:

        # [4 + 4, 4 + 8, 16 + 8]
        >>> res = (add.s(2, 2) | group(add.s(4), add.s(8), add.s(16)))()
        >>> res
        <GroupResult: a0acf905-c704-499e-b03a-8d445e6398f7 [

  - Chains can now chain other chains and use partial arguments (Issue #1057).
        >>> c1 = (add.s(2) | add.s(4))
        >>> c2 = (add.s(8) | add.s(16))

        >>> c3 = (c1 | c2)

        # 8 + 2 + 4 + 8 + 16
        >>> assert c3(8).get() == 38

  - Subtasks can now be used with unregistered tasks.
    You can specify subtasks even if you just have the name:

        >>> s = subtask(task_name, args=(), kwargs=())
        >>> s.delay()

  - The celery shell command now always adds the current
    directory to the module path.
  - The worker will now properly handle the pytz.AmbiguousTimeError
    exception raised when an ETA/countdown is prepared while being in DST
    transition (Issue #1061).
  - force_execv: Now makes sure that task symbols in the original
    task modules will always use the correct app instance (Issue #1072).
  - AMQP Backend: Now republishes result messages that have been polled
    (using result.ready() and friends, result.get() will not do this
    in this version).
  - Crontab schedule values can now "wrap around"
    This means that values like ``11-1`` translates to ``[11, 12, 1]``.

  - Handling of ETA/countdown fixed when the CELERY_ENABLE_UTC
    setting is disabled (Issue #1065).
  - A number of uneeded properties were included in messages,

  - Now depends on kombu 2.4.8
    - [Redis] New and improved fair queue cycle algorithm (Kevin McCarthy).
    - [Redis] Now uses a Redis-based mutex when restoring messages.
    - [Redis] Number of messages that can be restored in one interval is no
              longer limited (but can be set using the

Wed Sep 26 17:42:49 UTC 2012 -

- Update to 3.0.11:
  - generic-init.d scripts changed permissions of /var/log & /var/run
    In the daemonization tutorial the recommended directories were as follows:


    But in the scripts themselves the default files were /var/log/celery%n.log
    and /var/run/, so if the user did not change the location
    by configuration, the directories /var/log and /var/run would be
    created - and worse have their permissions and owners changed.

    This change means that:

        - Default pid file is /var/run/celery/
        - Default log file is /var/log/celery/%n.log

        - The directories are only created and have their permissions
          changed if *no custom locations are set*.

    Users can force paths to be created by calling the create-paths

        $ sudo /etc/init.d/celeryd create-paths

    Upgrading Celery will not update init scripts

        To update the init scripts you have to re-download
        the files from source control and update them manually.
        You can find the init scripts for version 3.0.x at:


  - Now depends on billiard
  - Fixes request stack protection when app is initialized more than
    once (Issue #1003).
  - ETA tasks now properly works when system timezone is not the same
    as the configured timezone (Issue #1004).
  - Terminating a task now works if the task has been sent to the
    pool but not yet acknowledged by a pool process (Issue #1007).

    Fix contributed by Alexey Zatelepin
  - Terminating a task now properly updates the state of the task to revoked,
    and sends a ``task-revoked`` event.
  - Multi: No longer parses --app option (Issue #1008).
  - Generic worker init script now waits for workers to shutdown by default.
  - Multi: stop_verify command renamed to stopwait.
  - Daemonization: Now delays trying to create pidfile/logfile until after
    the working directory has been changed into.
  - celery worker and celery beat commands now respects
    the --no-color option (Issue #999).
  - Fixed typos in eventlet examples (Issue #1000)

    Fix contributed by Bryan Bishop.
    Congratulations on opening bug #1000!
  - Tasks that raise celery.exceptions.Ignore are now acknowledged.
  - Beat: Now shows the name of the entry in sending due task logs.

- Update to 3.0.10:
  - Now depends on kombu 2.4.7
  - Now depends on billiard
    - Fixes crash at startup when using Django and pre-1.4 projects
    - Hard time limits now sends the KILL signal shortly after TERM,
      to terminate processes that have signal handlers blocked by C extensions.
    - Billiard now installs even if the C extension cannot be built.
        It's still recommended to build the C extension if you are using
        a transport other than rabbitmq/redis (or use forced execv for some
        other reason).
    - Pool now sets a ``current_process().index`` attribute that can be used to create
      as many log files as there are processes in the pool.
  - Canvas: chord/group/chain no longer modifies the state when called
    Previously calling a chord/group/chain would modify the ids of subtasks
    so that:

        >>> c = chord([add.s(2, 2), add.s(4, 4)], xsum.s())
        >>> c()
        >>> c() <-- call again

    at the second time the ids for the tasks would be the same as in the
    previous invocation.  This is now fixed, so that calling a subtask
    won't mutate any options.
  - Canvas: Chaining a chord to another task now works (Issue #965).
  - Worker: Fixed a bug where the request stack could be corrupted if
    relative imports are used.

    Problem usually manifested itself as an exception while trying to
    send a failed task result (NoneType does not have id attribute).

    Fix contributed by Sam Cooke.
  - Tasks can now raise celery.exceptions.Ignore to skip updating states
    or events after return.


        from celery.exceptions import Ignore

        def custom_revokes():
            if redis.sismember('tasks.revoked',
                raise Ignore()

  - The worker now makes sure the request/task stacks are not modified
    by the initial Task.__call__.

    This would previously be a problem if a custom task class defined
    __call__ and also called super().
  - Because of problems the fast local optimization has been disabled,
    and can only be enabled by setting the USE_FAST_LOCALS attribute.
  - Worker: Now sets a default socket timeout of 5 seconds at shutdown
    so that broken socket reads do not hinder proper shutdown (Issue #975).
  - More fixes related to late eventlet/gevent patching.
  - Documentation for settings out of sync with reality:


        Documented as disabled by default, but it was enabled by default
        since 2.5 as stated by the 2.5 changelog.


        The default max_retries had been set to 100, but documented as being
        3, and the interval_max was set to 1 but documented as 0.2.
        The default setting are now set to 3 and 0.2 as it was originally

    Fix contributed by Matt Long.
  - Worker: Log messages when connection established and lost have been improved.
  - The repr of a crontab schedule value of '0' should be '*'  (Issue #972).
  - Revoked tasks are now removed from reserved/active state in the worker
    (Issue #969)

    Fix contributed by Alexey Zatelepin.
  - gevent: Now supports hard time limits using gevent.Timeout.
  - Documentation: Links to init scripts now point to the 3.0 branch instead
    of the development branch (master).
  - Documentation: Fixed typo in signals user guide (Issue #986). ->
  - Eventlet/gevent: The worker did not properly set the custom app
    for new greenlets.
  - Eventlet/gevent: Fixed a bug where the worker could not recover
    from connection loss (Issue #959).

    Also, because of a suspected bug in gevent the
    BROKER_CONNECTION_TIMEOUT setting has been disabled
    when using gevent

- Update to 3.0.9:
  - Important note for users of Django and the database scheduler!
    Recently a timezone issue has been fixed for periodic tasks,
    but erroneous timezones could have already been stored in the
    database, so for the fix to work you need to reset
    the last_run_at fields.

    You can do this by executing the following command:

        $ python shell
        >>> from djcelery.models import PeriodicTask
        >>> PeriodicTask.objects.update(last_run_at=None)

    You also have to do this if you change the timezone or
    CELERY_ENABLE_UTC setting.
  - Note about the CELERY_ENABLE_UTC setting.
    If you previously disabled this just to force periodic tasks to work with
    your timezone, then you are now *encouraged to re-enable it*.
  - Now depends on Kombu 2.4.5 which fixes PyPy + Jython installation.
  - Fixed bug with timezones when :setting:`CELERY_ENABLE_UTC` is disabled
    (Issue #952).
  - Fixed a typo in the celerybeat upgrade mechanism (Issue #951).
  - Make sure the exc_info argument to logging is resolved (Issue #899).
  - Fixed problem with Python 3.2 and thread join timeout overflow (Issue #796).
  - A test case was occasionally broken for Python 2.5.
  - Unit test suite now passes for PyPy 1.9.
  - App instances now supports the with statement.
    This calls the new :meth:`~celery.Celery.close` method at exit, which
    cleans up after the app like closing pool connections.

    Note that this is only necessary when dynamically creating apps,
    e.g. for "temporary" apps.

  - Support for piping a subtask to a chain.

    For example:

        pipe = sometask.s() | othertask.s()
        new_pipe = mytask.s() | pipe

  - Beat: Fixed another timezone bug with interval and crontab schedules
    (Issue #943).
  - Beat: The schedule file is now automatically cleared if the timezone
    is changed.
    The schedule is also cleared when you upgrade to 3.0.8 from an earlier
    version, this to register the initial timezone info.
  - Events: The worker-heartbeat event now include processed and active
    count fields.
    Contributed by Mher Movsisyan.
  - Fixed error with error email and new task classes (Issue #931).

    - Redis: Fixes a race condition crash
    - Fixes an infinite loop that could happen when retrying establishing
      the broker connection.
  - Daemons now redirect standard file descriptors to /dev/null
    Though by default the standard outs are also redirected
    to the logger instead, but you can disable this by changing
  - Fixes possible problems when eventlet/gevent is patched too late.
  - LoggingProxy no longer defines fileno() (Issue #928).
  - Results are now ignored for the chord unlock task.
    Fix contributed by Steeve Morin.
  - Cassandra backend now works if result expiry is disabled.
    Fix contributed by Steeve Morin.
  - The traceback object is now passed to signal handlers instead
    of the string representation.
    Fix contributed by Adam DePue.
  - Celery command: Extensions are now sorted by name.
  - A regression caused the task-failed event to be sent
    with the exception object instead of its string representation.
  - The worker daemon would try to create the pid file before daemonizing
    to catch errors, but this file was not immediately released (Issue #923).
  - Fixes Jython compatibility.
  - billiard.forking_enable was called by all pools not just the
    processes pool, which would result in a useless warning if the billiard
    C extensions were not installed.

Fri Aug 17 22:34:07 UTC 2012 -

- Update to 3.0.6:
  - Now depends on kombu 2.4.0
  - Now depends on billiard
  - Redis: Celery now tries to restore messages whenever there are no messages
    in the queue.
  - Crontab schedules now properly respects CELERY_TIMEZONE setting.
    It's important to note that crontab schedules uses UTC time by default
    unless this setting is set.
    Issue #904 and django-celery #150.
  - billiard.enable_forking is now only set by the processes pool.
  - The transport is now properly shown by celery report
    (Issue #913).
  - The --app argument now works if the last part is a module name
    (Issue #921).
  - Fixed problem with unpickleable exceptions (billiard #12).
  - Adds task_name attribute to EagerResult which is always
    None (Issue #907).
  - Old Task class in celery.task no longer accepts magic kwargs by
    default (Issue #918).
    A regression long ago disabled magic kwargs for these, and since
    no one has complained about it we don't have any incentive to fix it now.
  - The inspect reserved control command did not work properly.
  - Should now play better with static analyzation tools by explicitly
    specifying dynamically created attributes in the celery and
    celery.task modules.
  - Terminating a task now results in
    celery.exceptions.RevokedTaskError instead of a WorkerLostError.
  - AsyncResult.revoke now accepts terminate and signal arguments.
  - The task-revoked event now includes new fields: terminated,
    signum, and expired.
  - The argument to celery.exceptions.TaskRevokedError is now one
    of the reasons revoked, expired or terminated.
  - Old Task class does no longer use classmethods for push_request and
    pop_request  (Issue #912).
  - GroupResult now supports the children attribute (Issue #916).
  - AsyncResult.collect now respects the intermediate argument
    (Issue #917).
  - Fixes example task in documentation (Issue #902).
  - Eventlet fixed so that the environment is patched as soon as possible.
  - eventlet: Now warns if celery related modules that depends on threads
    are imported before eventlet is patched.
  - Improved event and camera examples in the monitoring guide.
  - Disables celery command setuptools entrypoints if the command can't be
  - Fixed broken dump_request example in the tasks guide.

Wed Aug  1 18:58:47 UTC 2012 -

- Update to 3.0.5:

  - Fixed a bug with the -B option (``cannot pickle thread.lock objects``)
    (Issue #894 + Issue #892, + django-celery #154).
  - The restart_pool control command now requires the
    CELERYD_POOL_RESTARTS setting to be enabled
    This change was necessary as the multiprocessing event that the restart
    command depends on is responsible for creating many semaphores/file
    descriptors, resulting in problems in some environments.
  - chain.apply now passes args to the first task (Issue #889).
  - Documented previously secret options to the Django-Celery monitor
    in the monitoring userguide (Issue #396).
  - Old changelog are now organized in separate documents for each series,

- Update to 3.0.4:
  - Now depends on Kombu 2.3
  - New experimental standalone Celery monitor: Flower
    See monitoring-flower to read more about it!

    Contributed by Mher Movsisyan.
  - Now supports AMQP heartbeats if using the new pyamqp:// transport.
    - The py-amqp transport requires the amqp library to be installed:

        $ pip install amqp

    - Then you need to set the transport URL prefix to pyamqp://.

    - The default heartbeat value is 10 seconds, but this can be changed using
      the BROKER_HEARTBEAT setting

        BROKER_HEARTBEAT = 5.0

    - If the broker heartbeat is set to 10 seconds, the heartbeats will be
      monitored every 5 seconds (double the hertbeat rate).

    See the Kombu 2.3 changelog for more information.

  - Now supports RabbitMQ Consumer Cancel Notifications, using the pyamqp://
    This is essential when running RabbitMQ in a cluster.

    See the Kombu 2.3 changelog for more information.

  - Delivery info is no longer passed directly through.

    It was discovered that the SQS transport adds objects that can't
    be pickled to the delivery info mapping, so we had to go back
    to using the whitelist again.

    Fixing this bug also means that the SQS transport is now working again.

  - The semaphore was not properly released when a task was revoked (Issue #877).

    This could lead to tasks being swallowed and not released until a worker

    Thanks to Hynek Schlawack for debugging the issue.

  - Retrying a task now also forwards any linked tasks.

    This means that if a task is part of a chain (or linked in some other
    way) and that even if the task is retried, then the next task in the chain
    will be executed when the retry succeeds.

  - Chords: Now supports setting the interval and other keyword arguments
    to the chord unlock task.
    - The interval can now be set as part of the chord subtasks kwargs::

        chord(header)(body, interval=10.0)

    - In addition the chord unlock task now honors the Task.default_retry_delay
      option, used when none is specified, which also means that the default
      interval can also be changed using annotations:

            CELERY_ANNOTATIONS = {
                'celery.chord_unlock': {
                    'default_retry_delay': 10.0,

  - New @Celery.add_defaults method can add new default configuration
    dicts to the applications configuration.

    For example:

        config = {'FOO': 10}


    is the same as celery.conf.update(config) except that data will not be
    copied, and that it will not be pickled when the worker spawns child

    In addition the method accepts a callable:

        def initialize_config():
            # insert heavy stuff that can't be done at import time here.


    which means the same as the above except that it will not happen
    until the celery configuration is actually used.

    As an example, Celery can lazily use the configuration of a Flask app::

        flask_app = Flask()
        celery = Celery()
        celery.add_defaults(lambda: flask_app.config)

  - Revoked tasks were not marked as revoked in the result backend (Issue #871).

    Fix contributed by Hynek Schlawack.

  - Eventloop now properly handles the case when the epoll poller object
    has been closed (Issue #882).

  - Fixed syntax error in funtests/

    Fix contributed by Catalin Iacob.

  - group/chunks: Now accepts empty task list (Issue #873).
  - New method names:

    - Celery.default_connection() ➠  @Celery.connection_or_acquire.
    - Celery.default_producer()   ➠  @Celery.producer_or_acquire.

    The old names still work for backward compatibility.

- Update to 3.0.3:
  - amqplib passes the channel object as part of the delivery_info
    and it's not pickleable, so we now remove it.

    Libraries can add additional commands to the celery
    command by adding an entry-point like::

                'celery.commands': [
                    'foo = my.module:Command',

    The command must then support the interface of

Thu Mar  1 17:47:07 UTC 2012 -

- Update to 2.5.1:
  * Eventlet/Gevent: A small typo caused celeryd to hang when eventlet/gevent
    was used, this was because the environment was not monkey patched
    early enough.
  * Eventlet/Gevent: Another small typo caused the mediator to be started
    with eventlet/gevent, which would make celeryd sometimes hang at shutdown.
  * Mulitprocessing: Fixed an error occurring if the pool was stopped
    before it was properly started.
  * Proxy objects now redirects __doc__ and __name__ so help(obj)
  * Internal timer (timer2) now logs exceptions instead of swallowing them

Sat Feb 12 17:06:00 UTC 2011 -

- Update to 2.2.3:
  - Now depends on Kombu 1.0.3
  - Task.retry now supports a max_retries argument, used to change
    the default value.
  - multiprocessing.cpu_count may raise NotImplementedError on
    platforms where this is not supported (Issue #320).
  - Coloring of log messages broke if the logged object was not a
  - Fixed several typos in the init script documentation.
  - A regression caused and Task.routing_key to no
    longer have any effect. This is now fixed.
  - Routing Userguide: Fixes typo, routers in CELERY_ROUTES must be
    instances, not classes.
  - celeryev did not create pidfile even though the --pidfile
    argument was set.
  - Task logger format was no longer used. (Issue #317).
      The id and name of the task is now part of the log message
  - A safe version of repr() is now used in strategic places to
    ensure objects with a broken __repr__ does not crash the
    worker, or otherwise make errors hard to understand (Issue #298).
  - Remote control command active_queues: did not account for
    queues added at runtime.
      In addition the dictionary replied by this command now has a
      different structure: the exchange key is now a dictionary
      containing the exchange declaration in full.
  - The -Q option to celeryd removed unused queue declarations, so
    routing of tasks could fail.
      Queues are no longer removed, but rather
      app.amqp.queues.consume_from() is used as the list of queues
      to consume from.
      This ensures all queues are available for routing purposes.
  - celeryctl: Now supports the inspect active_queues command.

Thu Feb  3 22:37:08 UTC 2011 -

    executing the celeryd command.
  * daemonizing cookbook: Fixed typo --time-limit 300 ->
  * Colors in logging broke non-string objects in log messages.
  * setup_task_logger no longer makes assumptions about
    magic task kwargs.

- Update to 2.1.4:
  * Celery programs now hijacks the root logger by default (Issue #250).
  * Execution options to apply_async now takes precedence over options
    returned by active routers.  This was a regression introduced recently
    (Issue #244).
  * celeryev curses monitor: Long arguments are now truncated so curses
    doesn't crash with out of bounds errors.  (Issue #235).
  * celeryd: Channel errors occurring while handling control commands no
    longer crash the worker but are instead logged with severity error.
  * SQLAlchemy database backend: Fixed a race condition occurring when
    the client wrote the pending state.  Just like the Django database backend,
    it does no longer save the pending state (Issue #261 + Issue #262).
  * task.apply: propagate=True now raises exceptions from the original
    frame, keeping the same stacktrace (Issue #256).
  * Error email body now uses repr(exception) instead of str(exception),
    as the latter could result in Unicode decode errors (Issue #245).
  * Error e-mail timeout value is now configurable by using the
    :setting:EMAIL_TIMEOUT setting.
  * celeryev: Now works on Windows (but the curses monitor won't work without
    having curses).
  * Unit test output no longer emits non-standard characters.
  * celeryd: The broadcast consumer is now closed if the connection is reset.
  * celeryd: Now properly handles errors occurring while trying to acknowledge
    the message.
