Release history and notes

Sequence based identifiers are used for versioning (schema follows below):

major.minor[.revision]
  • It’s always safe to upgrade within the same minor version (for example, from 0.3 to 0.3.4).
  • Minor version changes might be backwards incompatible. Read the release notes carefully before upgrading (for example, when upgrading from 0.3.4 to 0.4).
  • All backwards incompatible changes are mentioned in this document.

0.8

2018-06-13

Note

This release contains backward incompatible changes. You should update your code.

Old get_tld functionality is moved to get_fld (first-level domain definition). The as_object argument (False by default) has been deprecated for get_fld.

res = get_tld("http://www.google.co.uk", as_object=True)

Old behaviour

In: res.domain
Out: 'google'

In: res.extension
Out: 'co.uk'

In: res.subdomain
Out: 'www'

In: res.suffix
Out: 'co.uk'

In: res.tld
Out: 'google.co.uk'

New behaviour

In: res.fld
Out: 'google.co.uk'

In: res.tld
Out: 'co.uk'

In: res.domain
Out: 'google'

In: res.subdomain
Out: 'www'

When used without as_object it returns co.uk.

Recap

If you have been happily using old version of get_tld function without as_object argument set to True, you might want to replace get_tld import with get_fld import:

# Old
from tld import get_tld
get_tld('http://google.co.uk')

# New
from tld import get_fld
get_fld('http://google.co.uk')
  • Move to a Trie to match TLDs. This brings a speed up of 15-20%.
  • It’s now possible to search in public, private or all suffixes (old behaviour). Use search_public and search_private arguments accordingly. By default (to support old behavior), both are set to True.
  • Correct TLD definitions.
  • Domains like *****.xn–fiqs8s are now recognized as well.
  • Due to usage of urlsplit instead of urlparse, the initial list of TLDs is assembled quicker (a speed-up of 15-20%).
  • Docs/ directory is included in source distribution tarball.
  • More tests.
