Hello List,

This is to let you know of a new release of Jug, version 0.8 final.


Version 0.8 introduces the Taskslet, which is a light-weight task, which
does not save its results to disk (or database). For more details, see

Many bugfixes too since the 0.8 Beta: CompoundTask works correctly now
(before you had to run it twice in some situations), and so does status
--cache. Some bugfixes since 0.7.4 in cleanup and sleep-until.


Jug allows you to write code that is broken up into tasks and run
different tasks on different processors (even across a cluster).

Jug is a pure Python implementation and should work on any platform.
