I'm releasing six 1.6.0. It has a few more backports and another attempt
to solve the great lazy proxy module problem suggested by Diana Clark.
Here's the changelog:
- Raise an AttributeError for every attribute of unimportable modules.
- Issue #56: Make the fake modules six.moves puts into sys.modules
appear not to
have a __path__ unless they are loaded.
- Pull request #28: Add support for SplitResult.
- Issue #55: Add move mapping for xmlrpc.server.
- Pull request #29: Add move for urllib.parse.splitquery.
I just released the first version (0.1) of BlitzDB, an embeddable,
document-based database written entirely in Python. The software is
open-source and released under the MIT license, the code is available on
The documentation is hosted on ReadTheDocs:
The database ships with a native, file-based backend that has no
external dependencies. In addition, it can be used as a wrapper around
third-party database engines such as MongoDB. Some more features:
* document-based, object-oriented interface
* powerful and rich querying language comparable to MongoDB
* deep document indexes on arbitrary fields
* compressed storage of documents
* support for multiple backends (e.g. file-based storage, MongoDB)
* support for database transactions (currently only for the file-based
The current, fully functional release is on PyPi
(https://pypi.python.org/pypi/blitzdb/0.1) and can be installed using
e.g. pip or easy_install:
pip install blitzdb
The main motivation for writing this was to create an embeddable,
document-oriented database that I could use in my Python projects (e.g.
command line tools) without having to worry about setting up and
maintaining additional software or servers. The project is NOT intended
as a fully-fledged replacement for MongoDB or other document databases.
I would love to hear your feedback on this project and I'm actively
looking for contributors, so feel free to get in touch with me (you can
find my e-mail on Github).

The Python Game Programming Challenge <http://pyweek.org/> will run
its 18th challenge from the 11th to the 18th of May.
The PyWeek challenge:
1. Invites entrants to write a game in one week from scratch either as
an individual or in a team,
2. Is intended to be challenging and fun,
3. Will increase the public body of game tools, code and expertise,
4. Will let a lot of people actually finish a game, and
5. May inspire new projects (with ready made teams!)
Check out the help page for how to compete (and prepare) and the
growing resources message board post:
It's been nearly a year since the last release, and this one brings
about 30+ fixes--a couple of the big ones include better Unicode
support when capturing output and compatibility with Python 3.4.
Thank you to all those who contributed to this release, and a special
thanks goes to Thomas Kluyver for all the code reviews and insights
while sorting out Unicode-related issues. See the CHANGELOG for the
details of what was fixed and the person to thank for fixing it.
It's also time to acknowledge that nose 1.x is in maintenance mode.
We will not be looking to add any features, and you should
seriously consider looking at nose2 as the way forward.
If you're interested in the future of nose, please take a look at the
nose2 project on github (https://github.com/nose-devs/nose2) or pypi
And lastly if you have the money to spare, please consider donating to
the John Hunter memorial fund (http://numfocus.org/johnhunter/). We
all give up time with our families to work on free software: so now
the free software community that has benefited so much from that
time we took can give something back to his family.
I am happy to announce the release of Bokeh version 0.4.2!
Check out the full documentation, interactive gallery, and tutorial at
If you are using Anaconda, you can install with conda:
conda install bokeh
Alternatively, you can install with pip:
pip install bokeh
Some of the new features in this release include:
* Additional Matplotlib and Seaborn compatibility (PolyCollection)
* Extensive tutorial with exercises and solutions added to docs
* new %bokeh magic for improved IPython notebook integration
* Windows support for bokeh-server with two new storage backends (in-memory and shelve)
Also, we've fixed lots of little bugs - see the CHANGELOG for full details.
Some examples of BokehJS use can be found on the Bokeh JSFiddle page:
The release of Bokeh 0.5 is planned for late March. Some notable features we plan to include are:
* Abstract Rendering for semantically meaningful downsampling of large datasets
* Better grid-based layout system, using Cassowary.js
* More MPL/Seaborn/ggplot.py compatibility and examples
* Additional tools, improved interactions, and better plot frame
* Touch support
Issues, enhancement requests, and pull requests can be made on the Bokeh Github page: https://github.com/continuumio/bokeh
Questions can be directed to the Bokeh mailing list: bokeh(a)continuum.io
Special thanks to recent contributors: Melissa Gymrek, Amy Troschinetz, Ben Zaitlen, Damian Avila, and Terry Jones

Hi there folks,
I'm pleased to announce the 2.0.0 release of psutil:
=== About ===
psutil (python system and process utilities) is a cross-platform library
for retrieving information on running processes and system utilization
(CPU, memory, disks, network) in Python. It is useful mainly for system
monitoring, profiling and limiting process resources and management of
running processes. It implements many functionalities offered by command
line tools such as: ps, top, lsof, netstat, ifconfig, who, df, kill, free,
nice, ionice, iostat, iotop, uptime, pidof, tty, taskset, pmap. It
currently supports Linux, Windows, OSX, FreeBSD and Sun Solaris, both
32-bit and 64-bit architectures, with Python versions from 2.4 to 3.4. Pypi
is also known to work.
=== What changed ===
A lot. I tried to address all the changes in this blog post:
=== Links ===
* Home page: http://code.google.com/p/psutil
* Documentation: http://psutil.readthedocs.org/en/latest/
Please try out this new release and let me know if you experience any
problem by filing issues on the bug tracker.
All the best,

* PEP 442, improved semantics for object finalization
* PEP 443, adding single-dispatch generic functions to the standard library
* PEP 445, a new C API for implementing custom memory allocators
* PEP 446, changing file descriptors to not be inherited by default
* PEP 450, a new "statistics" module

WHAT IS IT
Mail users, especially in non-English countries, often find that mail
messages arrived in different formats, with different content types, in
different encodings and charsets. Usually this is good because it allows us to
use appropriate format/encoding/whatever. Sometimes, though, some unification
is desirable. For example, one may want to put mail messages into an archive,
make HTML indices, run search indexer, etc. In such situations converting
messages to text in one character set and skipping some binary attachments is
Here is the solution - mimedecode.py.
This is a program to decode MIME messages. The program expects one input
file (either on command line or on stdin) which is treated as an RFC822
message, and decodes to stdout or an output file. If the file is not an RFC822
message it is just copied to the output one-to-one. If the file is a simple
RFC822 message it is decoded as one part. If it is a MIME message with multiple
parts ("attachments") all parts are decoded. Decoding can be controlled by
WHAT'S NEW in version 2.4.0 (2014-03-08)
Change option -d to accept a comma-separated list of headers:
Change option -d to decode all headers and accept a list of exceptions:
Change option -p to accept lists of headers and parameters:
Allow * and exceptions for -p in the headers and parameters lists:
Change option -r to accept a list of headers: -r h1,h2,h3,...
Change option -r to remove all headers and accept a list of exceptions:
Change option -R to accept lists of headers and parameters:
Publish docs in html format.
WHAT'S NEW in version 2.3.7 (2014-02-23)
Add option -r to remove headers and option -R to remove headers parameters.
