Hypy is a fulltext search interface for Python applications. Use it to index
and search your documents from Python code. Hypy is based on the
estraiernative bindings by Yusuke Yoshida.
* Fast, scalable
* Perfect recall ratio by N-gram method
* High precision by hybrid mechanism of N-gram and morphological analyzer
* Phrase search, regular expressions, attribute search (including numeric
and date comparisons), and similarity search
* Simple and powerful API
Homepage, downloads, everything, etc.: http://goonmill.org/hypy/
This is of course on pypi and can be installed with easy_install. You will
need Hyper Estraier installed to use it.
Release Version 0.8.4 (2009.09.19)
* It is now possible to construct an attribute-only search with None for
All known bugs are now fixed.
RunPON 0.5 can be downloaded from here:
http://erlug.linux.it/~da/soft/runpon/http://bitbucket.org/alberanid/runpon/ (mercurial repository)
In this version: every menu contains a list of available configuration
sets; the applet takes care of the panel orientation and there are other
improvements useful to debug the program itself.
RunPON is a small Python program useful to run the pon/poff scripts.
It shows the elapsed connection time and periodically checks if a given
network interface is still active.
It can run as a stand-alone application (with a status icon in the tray)
or as a Gnome panel applet (and compatible panels).
Obviously, modifying its configuration, it can run any program you like.
It's still under heavy development.

The period to submit proposals for PyCon 2010 in Atlanta is open until
October 18th. Tutorial are held the two days prior to the main conference
and feature 3-hour classes led by fellow Python developers and
like you*. Any topic relating to Python is allowed and the organizers
encourage anyone who wants to share their knowledge to submit their ideas
for consideration. Perennial classes include "Introduction to Python" for
various audiences (beginners, programmers, those new to Django and web
frameworks, etc.), intermediate Python (standard library, module/packages,
objects, etc.) and more specialized topics (SciPy/Matlab, unit and web
testing, optimization) as well as general topics such as "Best Practices"
for web programming, objects, libraries. There is even interest in a class
to show how to organize, design, write and distribute an Open Source
project. Any topic relating to Python is eligible.
Tutorial teachers are paid $1,000.00 per class for their efforts.
Interested (we hope so!)? More information is available at
http://us.pycon.org/2010/tutorials/proposals/ or write us at
We look forward to hearing from YOU.

I'm pleased to announce the release of version 1.4.8 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
The source distribution is available via the PyPI page for this version,
<URL:http://pypi.python.org/pypi/python-daemon/1.4.8/>. The latest
version is always available via the library's PyPI page
What's new in this version
This is a bug-fix version, addressing the problems with a daemon
starting child processes. The library no longer defaults to fiddling
with the ‘SIGCLD’ signal, and instead leaves that to the customisation
by the library user as appropriate.
An update to PEP 3143 to document this change in the API is in progress.
Thanks to those who raised this issue and helped troubleshoot it (see
<URL:http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.python.general/629633>) and to
Joel Martin for finally pinning down where the problem was.
