Having spent a lot of time with the new server but still using the old one, I want to say that the new app server is very promising but I personally think the decision to make the new app server the default now is a bit rushed. I hope you do not remove the old server before all our bugs have been addressed, this should be the criterion not the date. 

In the meantime, where are we supposed to file bugs now that the new server becomes the default so we can distinguish between the new and the old server issues, can somebody please clarify?

App Engine Python SDK - Release Notes

Version 1.7.6
===============================
- The new and improved development appserver, which was previewed last release,
  now becomes the default. The old development appserver has been renamed to
  old_appserver.py and will remain available until the first release after
  1 July 2013 when it will be removed from the SDK.
- The XMPP API now has multi-JID get_presence. This provides the ability to get
  the availability of multiple users.
- Django 1.4 and Webob 1.2.3 are now promoted to GA.
- Apps now have the ability to fopen() files that are declared as static files
  in app.yaml using the application_readable flag.
- The dev_appserver now allocates automatic ids using the 'scattered' id
  allocation policy by default. For more information, please see "Specifying the
  Automatic ID Allocation Policy":
  Datastore
- New Search API quotas are now displayed in the Admin Console. These quotas are
  not currently enforced, but will be part of the pricing model for the Search
  API in a future release.
- The experimental Search API's ability to explicitly sort search results by
  SortExpression.RANK_FIELD_NAME (i.e. _order_id) field in ascending order has
  been removed.
- Globally consistent indexes in the experimental Search API are now deprecated
  and will be removed in the next release.
- Task Queue tasks may now be added and deleted asynchronously. This allows
  applications to perform common task queue operations without blocking. This is
  an experimental feature.
- In the experimental MapReduce framework, shards that encounter Files API
  errors will retry three times before the entire job fails.
- ProtoRPC now supports deserializing and reserializing of unexpected fields.
- A new ProtoRPC field type for supporting datetime values has been added.
- Fixed an issue with the new dev_appserver failing on invalid login cookies. It
  now uses type="email" for email in the login form.
    id=36
- Fixed an issue with the new dev_appserver to have fix_sys_path add the
  necessary libraries to sys.path making it now compatible with the testbed.
    id=45

=============

  allocation policy by default. For more information, please see "Specifying the

And just yesterday I started a thread complaining about the extreme variability of TQ additions API**. I will be on this like white on rice. Thanks G.

**recent log shows 1057 ms latency comprised of 0-cpu and 1057 api which was immediately preceded (within 2 seconds) by 0/47ms for the exact same handler function:-)

Hi PK, we'll still be keeping the old Python dev_appserver in the SDK for another couple of releases to help people transition over. 

As for filing issues I'd suggest that any issues found in the SDK (be they in the old or new dev_appserver) be raised there, and if you are using the old dev_appserver, to note that fact in the bug report to help us track down the incident. If you find a bug in the open source project, then we will still be following that too and can respond to it there.

I tend to agree. The new server is a major improvement, but maybe not
ready for prime time just yet.

That's great!

But I have a new problem on 1.7.6 pre-release.
I must be use `--address` option of dev_appserver.py for access from other devices.
Probably `--address` option was changing to `--host` on 1.7.6.
So I tried use `--host` option instead `--address` and then got errors bellow:

> google.appengine.tools.devappserver2.wsgi_server.BindError: Unable to bind 0.0.0.0:8081

Seems to have failed starting server "b1".


Thanks,
Takanao

hi Takano,

Yes, it is correct to now use '--host' (instead of '--address') with the new dev_appserver.

Re: your error, I am guessing you have a backends.yaml file, with a backend 'b1' defined?  
If you specify '--host 0.0.0.0', and use the default 8080 port, you should indeed see the first backend start up on http://0.0.0.0:8081, and so on.
This works fine in my tests.
Is it possible that your port 8081 was already in use at the time?

 -Amy



Thanks,
Takanao

hi Amy,

Got it.

I tried commands below:

> $ dev_appserver.py .
It worked.

> $ dev_appserver.py --host 0.0.0.0 .
It's not worked.

> $ dev_appserver.py app.yaml
> $ dev_appserver.py --host 0.0.0.0 app.yaml
It's so good.

Thank you!
Takanao
