I'm pleased to announce the immediate availability of six 1.0.0. six
is a small compatibility library for writing code that works on Python
2 and 3 without modification.

six 1.0's main feature is that it is now one python module for ease of
distribution. Since the 1.0 beta, there have been only 2 changes:
First, "fake" unicode literals on Python 2 now have unicode escapes
decoded. Secondly, an API has been created for adding objects to the
"six.moves" interface.

You can download six on PyPi:
