      • services/settings:
        • removed get_bioservices_env function, which is not used anymore
        • move urlencode in Service class into WSDLService, which will be deprecated
        • add TIMEOUT in WSDLService and REST as alias to settings.TIMEOUT so timeout can now be used in both REST and WSDL.
    • NEWS:
      • readseq module added.
    • BUG fixes:
      • CACHING attribute had a typo
  • 1.3.0

    • NEWS
      • added REST class that uses the requests module. This class replaces of instance of RESTservice that uses urllib2, which will be deprecated later on. This speeds up the code significantly not only because requests is faster but also because we now do not need trial/time hack that was implemented inside RESTService. We also use the requests_cache module that could be used to speed go but requires to store cache files locally. Asynchronous requests is available but used only in a few places for now.
      • EUtils has been fully implemented excepting EPost. API may still change to make its usage easier but functionalities are there.
    • CHANGES
      • update code to be python-3 compatible. There are still issues with suds/requests/gevent but the code itself is python3 executable.
      • WSDLservice now uses suds instead of SOAP package by default
      • all paramters called format have been renamed frmt (format is a python keyword)
      • chembldb module and class renamed to chembl and bioservices.chembl.ChEMBL
      • All classes that depends on RESTService have been updated to use the new REST class.
      • chembldb:
        • get_assay_by_chemblId renamed in get_assays_by_chemblId
        • renamed get_target_by_refSeqId into get_target_by_refseq
        • kegg module: all Kegg strings replaced by KEGG so the kegg.Kegg class is now kegg.KEGG
      • ChEBI: getUpdatedPolymer: remove useless parameters (was failing with python3)
      • Wikipathway class renamed as WikiPathways to agree with official name
      • biomart now uses python3 and we had to remove the threaded_request module, which does not seem to ba available. So, we used the new implementation using requests but gevent is not available for python3 either so, we use requests but without the asynchronous call. This is working for now. Transparent for the user.
      • geneprof: parameter called type and format are renamed output and frmt to not clash with python keywords. Use REST class instead of RESTService but should be transparent for the users.
      • services do not have the checkParam method. use devtools.check_param_in_list instead.
    • BUG FIXES:
      • Fixing bug #24/25 posted on assembla related to parse_kgml_pathway second argument can now be used.
      • wikipathway: findInteractions had a typo in i
