A new version of PyChecker is available. This is mostly a bug fix release.
PyChecker is a tool for finding bugs in python source code. It finds problems that are typically caught by a compiler for less dynamic languages, like C and C++. It is similar to lint.
Comments, criticisms, new ideas, and other feedback is welcome.
