Hello all

I'm pleased to announce the 0.4.1 version of pylint. This is a quick
bug fix release to correct some annoyous bug of the previous version

What's new ?
* fix the setup.py script to allow bdist_winst (well, the generated
  installer has not been tested...) with the necessary
  logilab/__init__.py file

* fix file naming convention as suggested by Andreas Amoroso

* fix stupid crash bug with bad method names

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.
