Hi folks, I'm pleased to announce the 2.0.1 release of pysendfile: https://github.com/giampaolo/pysendfile
=== About ===
This is a python interface to sendfile(2) system call available on most UNIX systems. sendfile(2) provides a "zero-copy" way of copying data from one file descriptor to another (a socket). The phrase "zero-copy" refers to the fact that all of the copying of data between the two descriptors is done entirely by the kernel, with no copying of data into userspace buffers, resuting in file transfers being from 2x to 3x faster. Basically, any application sending files over the network can take advantage of it. HTTP and FTP servers are a typical example.
=== Changes ===
