  • BACKWARD INCOMPATIBLE Upgraded dependencies:

    • ruamel.yaml ⟶ 0.15+

    • cbor2 ⟶ ~5.0

    • msgpack ⟶ ~1.0

  • BACKWARD INCOMPATIBLE Removed the dumper_options parameter to YAMLSerializer, as ruamel.yaml does not seem to support this anymore

  • Dropped support for Python 3.5 and 3.6

4.0.3 (2018-11-21)

  • BACKWARD INCOMPATIBLE Switched the CBOR implementation to cbor2

  • BACKWARD INCOMPATIBLE Switched msgpack’s MIME type to application/msgpack
