Azure DocumentDB, Microsoft’s globally replicated, low latency, NoSQL database, is pleased to announce updates to all four of its client-side SDKs. The biggest improvements were made to the Python SDK, including support for Python 3, connection pooling, consistency improvements, and Top/Order By support for partitioned collections.
This article describes the changes made to each of the new SDKs.
DocumentDB Python SDK 2.0.0
The Azure DocumentDB Python SDK now supports Python 3. The DocumentDB Python SDK previously supported Python 2.7, but it now supports Python 3.3, Python 3.4 and Python 3.5, in addition to Python 2.7. But that’s not all! Connection pooling is now built in, so instead of creating a new connection for each request, calls to the same host are now added to the same session, saving the cost of creating a new connection each time. We also added a few enhancements to consistency level support, and we added Top and Order By support for cross-partition queries, so you can retrieve the top results from multiple partitions and order those results based on the property you specify.

DocumentDB .NET SDK 1.10.0
The new DocumentDB .NET SDK has a few specific improvements, the biggest of which is direct connectivity support for partitioned collections. If you're currently using a partitioned collection – this improvement is the go fast button! In addition, the .NET SDK improves performance for the Bounded Staleness consistency level, and adds LINQ support for StringEnumConverter, IsoDateTimeConverter and UnixDateTimeConverter while translating predicates.
