What’s new in Tornado 5.0.2

Apr 7, 2018

Bug fixes

  • Fixed a memory leak when IOLoop objects are created and destroyed.

  • If AsyncTestCase.get_new_ioloop returns a reference to a preexisting event loop (typically when it has been overridden to return IOLoop.current()), the test’s tearDown method will not close this loop.

  • Fixed a confusing error message when the synchronous HTTPClient fails to initialize because an event loop is already running.

  • PeriodicCallback no longer executes twice in a row due to backwards clock adjustments.
