On behalf of the Python development team, I'm happy to announce the
Python 3.2.2 maintenance release.
Python 3.2.2 mainly fixes `a regression <http://bugs.python.org/12576>`_ in the
``urllib.request`` module that prevented opening many HTTP resources correctly
with Python 3.2.1.
Python 3.2 is a continuation of the efforts to improve and stabilize the
Python 3.x line. Since the final release of Python 2.7, the 2.x line
will only receive bugfixes, and new features are developed for 3.x only.
Since PEP 3003, the Moratorium on Language Changes, is in effect, there
are no changes in Python's syntax and built-in types in Python 3.2.
Development efforts concentrated on the standard library and support for
porting code to Python 3. Highlights are:
* numerous improvements to the unittest module
* PEP 3147, support for .pyc repository directories
* PEP 3149, support for version tagged dynamic libraries
* PEP 3148, a new futures library for concurrent programming
* PEP 384, a stable ABI for extension modules
* PEP 391, dictionary-based logging configuration
* an overhauled GIL implementation that reduces contention
* an extended email package that handles bytes messages
* a much improved ssl module with support for SSL contexts and certificate
* a sysconfig module to access configuration information
* additions to the shutil module, among them archive file support
* many enhancements to configparser, among them mapping protocol support
* improvements to pdb, the Python debugger
* countless fixes regarding bytes/string issues; among them full support
for a bytes environment (filenames, environment variables)
* many consistency and behavior fixes for numeric operations

CodeInvestigator version 1.7.0 was released on September 3.
- Bug fixes:
When 'print' and 'if' appear on the same line, the generate failed.
pprint() actions were not picked up.
- Design changes:
A default configuration is used when installing. The dependency on
tkinter could be removed.
The server process is now a true server process. All communication
is only via HTTP.
The code can be displayed in a configurable font.
Recording can be paused and resumed to avoid too much clutter.
CodeInvestigator is a tracing tool for Python programs.
Running a program through CodeInvestigator creates a recording.
Program flow, function calls, variable values and conditions are all
stored for every line the program executes.
The recording is then viewed with an interface consisting of the code.
The code can be clicked: A clicked variable displays its value, a
clicked loop displays its iterations.
You read code, and have at your disposal all the run time details of
that code. A computerized desk check tool and another way to learn
about your program.

The current version passes all tests on Windows (CPython 2.4, 2.5,

What Does It Do?
The gnupg module allows Python programs to make use of the
functionality provided by the Gnu Privacy Guard (abbreviated GPG or
GnuPG). Using this module, Python programs can encrypt and decrypt
data, digitally sign documents and verify digital signatures, manage
(generate, list and delete) encryption keys, using proven Public Key
Infrastructure (PKI) encryption technology based on OpenPGP.
This module is expected to be used with Python versions >= 2.4, as it
makes use of the subprocess module which appeared in that version of
Python. This module is a newer version derived from earlier work by
Andrew Kuchling, Richard Jones and Steve Traugott.
A test suite using unittest is included with the source distribution.
>>> import gnupg
>>> gpg = gnupg.GPG(gnupghome='/path/to/keyring/directory')
'uids': ['', 'Gary Gross (A test user) <gary.gr...(a)gamma.com>']},
'uids': ['', 'Danny Davis (A test user) <danny.da...(a)delta.com>']}]
>>> encrypted = gpg.encrypt("Hello, world!", ['0C5FEFA7A921FC4A'])
'-----BEGIN PGP MESSAGE-----\nVersion: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)\n
-----END PGP MESSAGE-----\n'
>>> decrypted = gpg.decrypt(str(encrypted), passphrase='secret')
>>> signed = gpg.sign("Goodbye, world!", passphrase='secret')
>>> verified = gpg.verify(str(signed))
>>> print "Verified" if verified else "Not verified"

as always, your feedback is most welcome (especially bug reports,
patches and suggestions for improvement). Enjoy!
