I've just released version 0.2.2 of distlib on PyPI . For newcomers,
distlib is a library of packaging functionality which is intended to be
usable as the basis for third-party packaging tools.
The main changes in this release are as follows:
* Fixed issue #81: Added support for detecting distributions installed by
wheel versions >= 0.23 (which use metadata.json rather than pydist.json).
* Updated default PyPI URL to https://pypi.python.org/pypi
* Updated to use different formatting for description field for V1.1
* Corrected “classifier” to “classifiers” in the mapping for V1.0 metadata.
* Improved support for Jython when quoting executables in output scripts.
* Fixed issue #77: Made the internal URL used for extended metadata fetches
configurable via a module attribute.
* Fixed issue #78: Improved entry point parsing to handle leading spaces in
A more detailed change log is available at .
Please try it out, and if you find any problems or have any suggestions for
improvements, please give some feedback using the issue tracker! 
This trinity release of devpi, the private packaging and workflow
system, is drop-in compatible to earlier releases and comes with these
- support for pip search on the server side which is also configured
when "devpi use" writes to pip configuration files.
- explicit --offline-mode for devpi-server to avoid trying
unneccessary and potentially laggy network requests and to
streamline simple pages to only contain releases that are locally
cached. thanks Daniel Panteleit for the PR.
- push from root/pypi to other indexes works now.
Docs are to be found as usual at:
This release brought to you mainly by Florian Schulze and me
and a few still unnamed sponsoring companies. Speaking of which,
if you need support, training, adjustments wrt packaging and
professional testing you may contact us through http://merlinux.eu.
You can also expect devpi-server-3.0 soon, a major new release which
is to bring improvements like generalized mirroring, storage
backends, speed and internal code cleanups.
- fix issue262: new experimental option --offline-mode will prevent
devpi-server from even trying to perform network requests and it
also strip all non-local release files from the simple index.
Thanks Daniel Panteleit for the PR.
- fix issue304: mark devpi-server versions older than 2.2.x as incompatible
and requiring an import/export cycle.
- fix issue296: try to fetch files from master again when requested, if there
were checksum errors during replication.
- if a user can't be found during authentication (with ``setup.py upload`` for
example), then the http return code is now 401 instead of 404.
- fix issue293: push from root/pypi to another index is now supported
- fix issue265: ignore HTTP(S) proxies when checking if the server is
- Add ``content_type`` route predicate for use by plugins.
- fix issue305: read documentation html files in binary and let BeautifulSoup
detect the encoding.
- require devpi-server >= 2.6.0
- support for ``pip search`` command on indexes
- fix issue291: transfer file modes with vcs exports. Thanks Sergey
Vasilyev for the report.
- new option "--index" for "install", "list", "push", "remove", "upload" and
"test" which allows to use a different than the current index without using
"devpi use" before
- set ``index`` in ``[search]`` section of ``pip.cfg`` when writing cfgs, to
support ``pip search``
Please help me to uninstall Python 2.7 on Windows. I want to install Python 3, and new python packages are all installed for Python 2.7, even I tried uninstalling approaches i searched from web to uninstalling previous versions.
PyVmMonitor 1.0.1 is now available for download
- Pstats files may be passed in the command line to be opened in
- Fixed issue opening PyVmMonitor in Mac OS (El Capitan).
- Opening PStats file may fail because it's linked to a Python version,
so, in such a situation, PyVmMonitor allows opening it using a different
- Command line examples are properly wrapped with quotes on Windows.
See: http://www.pyvmmonitor.com for more information.
*What is PyVmMonitor?*
PyVmMonitor is a profiler with a simple goal: being the best way to profile
a Python program.
- Attach profiler to a running (CPython) program
- Deterministic profiling through cProfile/profile integration
- On demand profiling with Yappi integration
- Analyze existing PStats results
- Open DOT files
- Programatic API access
- Profile on a different machine
- Multiple processes support (multiprocessing, django...)
- Live sampling/CPU view
- Select time range
- Group samples by method or line
- PyDev integration

pytest-2.8.7 ============ This is a hotfix release to solve a regression
in the builtin monkeypatch plugin that got introduced in 2.8.6.
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 2.8.5.
See below for the changes and see docs at:
http://pytest.org As usual, you can upgrade from pypi via::
pip install -U pytest Thanks to all who contributed to this release, among them:
