I'm pleased to announce the 0.3.3 release of PyLint. This is
essentially a bug fix releases plus some minor features.

What's new ?
* added a parsable text output, used when the --parsable option is

* added an emacs mode using this output, available in the distrib's
  elisp directory

* fixed some typos in messages

* change include-ids options to yn, and allow it to be in the
  configuration file

* do not choke on corrupted stats files

* fixed bug in the format checker which may stop pylint execution

* added inimal pylint tk gui

What is pylint ?

Pylint is a python tool that checks if a module satisfy a coding
standard. Pylint can be seen as another pychecker since nearly all
tests you can do with pychecker can also be done with Pylint. But
Pylint offers some more features, like checking line-code's length,
checking if variable names are well-formed according to your coding
standard, or checking if declared interfaces are truly implemented,
and much more (see http://www.logilab.org/pylint/ for the complete
check list). The big advantage with Pylint is that it is highly
configurable, customizable, and you can easily write a small plugin to
add a personal feature.

The usage it quite simple :

$ pylint mypackage.mymodule

This command will output all the errors and warnings related to the
tested code (here : mypackage.mymodule), will dump a little summary at
the end, and will give a mark to the tested code.

Pylint is free software distributed under the GNU Public Licence.
