Hi All,

I'm pleased to announce a new release of buildout-versions.

This release allows you to specify the version of python that a buildout 
should be run with, for example:

extensions = buildout-versions
versions = versions
parts =

python = 2.6
buildout-versions = 1.2
setuptools = 0.6c11
zc.buildout = 1.5.0

If you attempt to run the buildout with the wrong version of python, 
you'll get an error such as:

$ bin/buildout
   Loading extensions.
Error: python version specified not found in sys.version: 2.6

The PyPI page is here:

The documentation is here:

If you have any problems or suggestions, please let me know on this list 
or the Simplistix open source google group!
