Howdy all, I'm pleased to announce the release of version 1.5.1 of ?python-daemon'. What is python-daemon ===================== The ?python-daemon' library is the reference implementation of PEP 3143 <URL:http://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-3143/>, "Standard daemon process library". The source distribution is available via the PyPI page for this version, <URL:http://pypi.python.org/pypi/python-daemon/1.5.1/>. The latest version is always available via the library's PyPI page <URL:http://pypi.python.org/pypi/python-daemon/>. What's new in this version ========================== Since version 1.4.8 the following significant improvements have been made: * Raise specific errors on failures from the library, distinguishing different conditions better. * Write the PID file using correct OS locking and permissions. * Implement ?PIDLockFile' as subclass of ?lockfile.LinkFileLock'. The ?PIDLockFile' and ?TimeoutPIDLockFile' implementation is in the process of migrating to the more specific ?lockfile' library, with the assistance of Skip Montanaro; at some future point it will no longer be part of ?python-daemon'. -- \ "A computer once beat me at chess, but it was no match for me | `\ at kick boxing." ?Emo Philips | _o__) | Ben Finney -- http://mail.python.org/mailman/listinfo/python-announce-list Support the Python Software Foundation: http://www.python.org/psf/donations/
