# Announcing datasette-pytables 2.0.1

## What's new

This new release of datasette-pytables uses datasette-connectors
2.0.1, which provides the last Datasette version with design and
security improvings and many changes in its API. The main change for
datasette-pytables users is that percent character has to be used
instead slash for table names when writing queries in the Datasette
query editor.

## What it is

Datasette-PyTables provides a web interface and a JSON API for
[PyTables](https://github.com/PyTables/PyTables) files, allowing them
to be accessible for e.g. Javascript programs. It works in conjunction
with [Datasette-Connectors](https://github.com/PyTables/datasette-connectors),
a module that patches
[Datasette](https://github.com/simonw/datasette), which provides a web
interface for SQLite files. With this patch, it's possible to work
with SQLite files in the usual way but external connectors are
accepted for any kind of database files, so you can develop your own
connector for your favourite data container if you want (read
[developers doc](https://github.com/PyTables/datasette-connectors/blob/master/DEVELOPERS.md)).
