pluggy 1.0.0 (2021-08-25)

Deprecations and Removals

  • #116: Remove deprecated implprefix support. Decorate hook implementations using an instance of HookimplMarker instead. The deprecation was announced in release 0.7.0.
  • #120: Remove the deprecated proc argument to call_historic. Use result_callback instead, which has the same behavior. The deprecation was announced in release 0.7.0.
  • #265: Remove the _Result.result property. Use _Result.get_result() instead. Note that unlike result, get_result() raises the exception if the hook raised. The deprecation was announced in release 0.6.0.
  • #267: Remove official support for Python 3.4.
  • #272: Dropped support for Python 2. Continue to use pluggy 0.13.x for Python 2 support.
  • #308: Remove official support for Python 3.5.
  • #313: The internal pluggy.callers, pluggy.manager and pluggy.hooks are now explicitly marked private by a _ prefix (e.g. pluggy._callers). Only API exported by the top-level pluggy module is considered public.
  • #59: Remove legacy __multicall__ recursive hook calling system. The deprecation was announced in release 0.5.0.


  • #282: When registering a hookimpl which is declared as hookwrapper=True but whose function is not a generator function, a PluggyValidationError exception is now raised.

    Previously this problem would cause an error only later, when calling the hook.

    In the unlikely case that you have a hookwrapper that returns a generator instead of yielding directly, for example:

    def my_hook_real_implementation(arg):
    def my_hook(arg):
        return my_hook_implementation(arg)

    change it to use yield from instead:

    def my_hook(arg):
        yield from my_hook_implementation(arg)
  • #309: Add official support for Python 3.9.

pluggy 0.8.1 (2018-11-09)

Trivial/Internal Changes

Trivial/Internal Changes

  • #165: Add changelog in long package description and documentation.

pluggy 0.7.1 (2018-07-28)

Deprecations and Removals

  • #116: Deprecate the implprefix kwarg to PluginManager and instead expect users to start using explicit HookimplMarker everywhere.


  • #122: Add .plugin member to PluginValidationError to access failing plugin during post-mortem.
  • #138: Add per implementation warnings support for hookspecs allowing for both deprecation and future warnings of legacy and (future) experimental hooks respectively.

Bug Fixes

  • #110: Fix a bug where _HookCaller.call_historic() would call the proc arg even when the default is None resulting in a TypeError.
  • #160: Fix problem when handling VersionConflict errors when loading setuptools plugins.

Improved Documentation

  • #123: Document how exceptions are handled and how the hook call loop terminates immediately on the first error which is then delivered to any surrounding wrappers.
  • #136: Docs rework including a much better introduction and comprehensive example set for new users. A big thanks goes out to @obestwalter for the great work!

Trivial/Internal Changes

  • #117: Break up the main monolithic package modules into separate modules by concern
  • #131: Automate setuptools wheels building and PyPi upload using TravisCI.
  • #153: Reorganize tests more appropriately by modules relating to each internal component/feature. This is in an effort to avoid (future) duplication and better separation of concerns in the test set.
  • #156: Add HookImpl.__repr__() for better debugging.
  • #66: Start using towncrier and a custom tox environment to prepare releases!

pluggy 0.7.0 (Unreleased)

pluggy 0.5.2 (2017-09-06)

  • resolve #32: split up the test set into multiple modules. Thanks to @RonnyPfannschmidt for the PR and @tgoodlet for the initial request.
