Release highlights

Blobs 12.14.0b1 Changelog

Features Added

  • Added support for AzureNamedKeyCredential as a valid credential type.

Bugs Fixed

  • Removed dead retry meachism from async
  • Updated exception catching of’s retry mechanism.
  • Adjusted type hints for upload_blob and StorageStreamDownloader.readall.
  • Fixed a bug where uploading an empty blob via upload_blob would fail with validate_content=True.

Blobs 12.14.0b2 Changelog

Features Added

  • Added a new API, list_blob_names, to ContainerClient that lists only the names of the blobs in the respective container. This API is significantly faster than the traditional list_blobs and can be used if only the blob names are desired. It does not return any additional properties or metadata for the blobs.

Cognitive Search 11.3.0 Changelog

Features Added

  • Added support for other national clouds.
  • Added support for TokenCredential

Bugs Fixed

  • Fixed issue where async search call would fail with a 403 error when retrieving large number of documents.

Features Added

  • Added support to create, update and delete aliases via the SearchIndexClient.

Communication Identity 1.2.0 Changelog

Features Added

  • Exported types MicrosoftTeamsUserIdentifier, PhoneNumberIdentifier, UnknownIdentifier for non Azure Communication Services CommunicationIdentifier identities. Exported related types: MicrosoftTeamsUserProperties and PhoneNumberProperties.
  • Added identifier_from_raw_id and ensured that CommunicationIdentifier.raw_id is populated on creation. Together, these can be used to translate between a CommunicationIdentifier and its underlying canonical raw ID representation. Developers can now use the raw ID as an encoded format for identifiers to store in their databases or as stable keys in general.

Communication Rooms 1.0.0b2 Changelog

Bugs Fixed

  • Invalid datestrings for valid_from and valid_until raises exception

Features Added

  • Added support for AzureNamedKeyCredential as a valid credential type.
  • Added support for flush to append_data API, allowing for append and flush in one operation.
