On behalf of the Python development community and the Python 3.4 and 3.5
release teams, I'm pleased to announce the simultaneous availability of
Python 3.5.1 and Python 3.4.4rc1. As point releases, both have many
incremental improvements over their predecessor releases.
You can find Python 3.5.1 here:
And you can find Python 3.4.4rc1 here:
Python 2.7.11 shipped today too, so it's a Python release-day hat trick!
pytest is a mature Python testing tool with more than a 1100 tests
against itself, passing on many different interpreters and platforms.
This release is supposed to be drop-in compatible to 2.8.2.
See below for the changes and see docs at:
As usual, you can upgrade from pypi via::

I am pleased to announce the release of xlwings v0.6.0:
Amongst other new features, this release merges the ExcelPython project fully into xlwings which means that User Defined Functions (UDFs) are now supported on Windows.
Check the Release Notes for full details:
xlwings is a BSD-licensed python library that makes it easy to call python from
Excel and vice versa:
Interact with Excel from python using a syntax that is close to VBA yet pythonic.
Replace your VBA macros/UDFs with python code and still pass around your workbooks as easily as before.
xlwings fully supports NumPy arrays and Pandas DataFrames.
It works with Microsoft Excel on Windows and Mac.
This is my announcement for a new MIT-licensed package/module called
'simpleaudio' that provides cross-platform audio playback capability for
Python 3. Have a look at the documentation (link below) for installation,
examples, and a tutorial. Wheels for OSX and Windows, as well as the source
distribution for Linux, are on PyPI.
The project source it at: https://github.com/hamiltron/py-simple-audio
For help with usage, please post on StackOverflow with the tag
For bugs or distribution issues, or please email simpleaudio.bugs(a)gmail.com.
Thanks and have fun.
