Howdy all,

I'm pleased to announce the release of version 1.5.2 of ‘python-daemon’.

What is python-daemon

The ‘python-daemon’ library is the reference implementation of PEP 3143
<URL:http://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-3143/>, “Standard daemon process

The source distribution is available via the PyPI page for this version,
<URL:http://pypi.python.org/pypi/python-daemon/1.5.2/>. The latest
version is always available via the library's PyPI page

What's new in this version

Since version 1.5 the following significant improvements have been made:

* The documented option ‘prevent_core’, which defaults to True allowing
  control over whether core dumps are prevented in the daemon process,
  is now implemented (it is specified in PEP 3143 but was accidentally
  omitted until now).

* A document answering Frequently Asked Questions is now added.
