I'm pleased to announce the 0.1.1 release of psutil:

=== About ===

psutil is a module providing an interface for retrieving information
on running processes in a portable way by using Python.
It currently supports Linux, OS X, FreeBSD and Windows.

=== Enhancements ===

Aside from fixing some bugs psutil 0.1.1 includes the following major

 * FreeBSD support has been added
 * Support for determining process's UID and GID has been added
 * Support for determining parent PID of a process
 * A process_iter() function to iterate over processes as Process
objects with a generator has been added
 * Process objects can now also be compared with == operator for
equality (PID, name, command line are compared).

As of now psutil is released to the general public, and should be
considered a beta release implementing basic functionality.
With this second release we'd like to receive feedback from users and
suggestions for additional functionality.
Patches and volunteers to test/develop for additional platforms
