IBM’s Python driver is out of beta

This article is obsolete. Please refer to the following articles for up do date instructions: Ruby/Rails and DB2 | Python/Django and DB2. Thank you!

There’s a new release of the Python driver/wrapper for DB2 and Informix in town. Version 0.7.0 is officially the first stable, production ready release. It includes fixes for a few known bugs and fully supports Unicode.

This driver, and the DB-API 2.0 wrapper it ships with, have been released under the Apache License 2.0. What’s more, the IBM API team is now legally allowed to accept your contributions to the project.

If you use this release in your projects, let us know, we’d love to hear how our releases are getting used in production.

    Does this mean we might be seeing the Django DB2 adapter soon?
