I have just released Shed Skin 0.0.27. Thanks in large part to the GHOP students, this new release comes with some interesting new goodies:
- support for 're', via libpcre (perl-compatible-regular-expressions) - support for 'time' (except for time.strptime under Windows) - basic support for 'staticmethod' and 'property' - support for 'fnmatch', 'glob' (bootstrapped) - improved support for 'os' (POSIX) - OSX support again (including extension modules!) - many fixes for multi-dir/multi-file projects - several builtin optimizations (zip, list(str)..) - type model for 'datetime' (no C++ implementation yet) - split up compiler core, ss.py, into several files - many minor bugfixes
As for the 4 new modules (re, time, fnmatch, glob), this means Shed Skin now supports most of the following modules:
bisect collections copy fnmatch getopt glob math os os.path random re string sys time
I could still really use some help with implementing/bootstrapping implementations for 'datetime' and 'socket', and further improving 'os' (especially under Windows).
Note that since the previous release we have a nice tutorial online. It explains in detail how to install and use Shed Skin, how to use it to build (simple) extension modules and how to combine Shed Skin with numpy and parallel processing solutions such as Parallel Python.
Thanks, Mark Dufour.
