Version 4.0.1 of ConfigObj is now available. This includes one bugfix
and two new features.

What's New ?

Fixed bug in ``Section.walk`` when transforming names as well as

Added the ``istrue`` section method. (Fetches the boolean equivalent of
a string value).

Fixed ``list_values=False`` - single line values are not quoted or

for a description of these changes.

List values are written as ``item, item`` rather than ``item,item``.

What is ConfigObj ?

ConfigObj is a simple but powerful config file reader and writer: an
ini file round tripper. It's main feature is that it is very easy to
use, with a straightforward programmer's interface and a simple syntax
for config files. It has lots of other features though. This module is
used in most Voidspace projects. See the ConfigObj Home Page for full

It's features include :

    * Nested sections (subsections), to any level
    * List Values
    * Multiple Line Values
    * String interpolation (substitution)
    * Integrated with a powerful validation system

              o including automatic type checking/conversion
              o repeated sections
              o and allowing default values

    * All comments in the file are preserved
    * The order of keys/sections is preserved
    * No external dependencies
