=== What is PyPE? ===
PyPE (Python Programmers' Editor) was written in order to offer a
lightweight but powerful editor for those who think emacs is too much
and idle is too little. Syntax highlighting is included out of the box,
as is multiple open documents via tabs.
Beyond the basic functionality, PyPE offers an expandable source tree,
filesystem browser, draggable document list, todo list, filterable
function list, find and replace bars (no dialog to find or replace simple
strings), recordable and programmable macros, spell checker,
reconfigurable menu hotkeys, triggers, find in files, external process
shells, and much more.
=== More Information ===

PyPE 2.7.2 includes the following changes and bugfixes since release
(changed) files with at least 20,000 lines or at least 4 megs will no
longer have their bookmark or fold states saved on close. This
significantly reduces the time to close (and sometimes open) large files.
(fixed) code that uses MainWindow.exceptDialog() will now properly create
(fixed) wxPython 2.7 incompatability in the Browsable directory tree in
wxPython 2.7 - 184.108.40.206 .
(removed) some unnecessary debug printouts.
(changed) the 'Search' tab to better handle narrower layouts.
(fixed) the 'Ignore .subdirs' option in the 'Search' tab now gets
disabled along with 'Search Subdirectories' when applicable.
(fixed) error when opening changelog.txt on unicode-enabled
(fixed) spell checker for unicode-enabled platforms.
(fixed) case where various checkmarks in the Documents menu wouldn't
update when a document was opened, closed, or created on some platforms.
(added) --font= command line option for choosing the font that the
editor will use.
I'm pleased to announce release 0.61.0 of Task Coach. New in this release:
* Displaying a previously hidden toolbar would result in an incorrectly
* Exported HTML didn't contain an explicit charset.
* Negative effort preventation was not working correctly.
* Hierarchical categories.
* Export in Comma Separated Values (CSV) format. As with export to HTML,
the current view is exported.
* Task Coach can be run from a removable medium, such as a USB stick. On
Windows, use the installer to install Task Coach to the medium. Then,
start Task Coach and turn the setting 'Save settings to same directory
as program' on. This setting can be found in Edit -> Preferences ->
File). This makes sure the TaskCoach.ini file is saved on the removable
medium, in the same directory as the main program.
What is Task Coach?
Task Coach is a simple task manager that allows for hierarchical
tasks, i.e. tasks in tasks. Task Coach is open source (GPL) and is
developed using Python and wxPython. You can download Task Coach from:
A binary installer is available for Windows XP and a disk image is
available for Mac OSX, in addition to the source distribution.
Note that Task Coach is alpha software, meaning that it is wise to back
up your task file regularly, and especially when upgrading to a new release.
After many 0.9* versions, pydf version 1 is released.
pydf displays the amount of used and available space on your
filesystems, just like df, but in colours. The output format is
Pydf was written and works on Linux, but should work also on other
modern UNIX systems (including MacOSX).
Changes since the last version:
* show read only mounted filesystems in different colour (thanks
to Michał J. Gajda and Bastian Kleineidam)
* work around python statvfs 32-bit overflow bug (this manifested
itself with filesystems bigger than 2147483648 blocks)

The November meeting of MichiPUG will be tomorrow, Thursday, November
2nd at 7PM at the Arbor Networks office. Last month's meeting had a
filled schedule with talks on wxPython and Twill. This month, we've
got our most open schedule that we've had for a few months. The one
topic we've decided on is that we're going to talk about editors and
people will be free to show off some of the cool Python editing
related features of their favorite editor/IDE.
In months past when we didn't have a full schedule, we've still had
plenty to talk about. The time is left open for any random Python
question or quick topics that people want discuss. So, bring along
your editor and any burning Python questions and join us!
(Meetings are free, and the meeting is at the Arbor Networks office in
downtown Ann Arbor)

What is PyDev?
PyDev is a plugin that enables users to use Eclipse for Python and Jython
development -- making Eclipse a first class Python IDE -- It comes with many
goodies such as code completion, syntax highlighting, syntax analysis,
refactor, debug and many others.

On behalf of the Python development team and the Python
community, I'm happy to announce the release of Python 2.3.6
Python 2.3.6 is a security bug-fix release. While Python 2.5
is the latest version of Python, we're making this release for
people who are still running Python 2.3. Unlike the recently
released 2.4.4, this release only contains a small handful of
security-related bugfixes. See the website for more.
* Python 2.3.6 contains a fix for PSF-2006-001, a buffer overrun
* in repr() of unicode strings in wide unicode (UCS-4) builds.
* See http://www.python.org/news/security/PSF-2006-001/ for more.
This is a **source only** release. The Windows and Mac binaries
of 2.3.5 were built with UCS-2 unicode, and are therefore not
vulnerable to the problem outlined in PSF-2006-001. The PCRE fix
is for a long-deprecated module (you should use the 're' module
instead) and the email fix can be obtained by downloading the
standalone version of the email package.
Most vendors who ship Python should have already released a
patched version of 2.3.5 with the above fixes, this release is
for people who need or want to build their own release, but don't
want to mess around with patch or svn.
There have been no changes (apart from the version number) since the
release candidate of 2.3.6.
Python 2.3.6 will complete python.org's response to PSF-2006-001.
If you're still on Python 2.2 for some reason and need to work
with UCS-4 unicode strings, please obtain the patch from the
PSF-2006-001 security advisory page. Python 2.4.4 and Python 2.5
have both already been released and contain the fix for this
For more information on Python 2.3.6, including download links
for source archives, release notes, and known issues, please see:
Highlights of this new release include:
- A fix for PSF-2006-001, a bug in repr() for unicode strings
on UCS-4 (wide unicode) builds.
- Two other, less critical, security fixes.
Enjoy this release,
Python Release Manager
(on behalf of the entire python-dev team)
