CaptureMock 0.3 - true record/replay mocking for Python (and other things...)

Hi all,

There's a new release of CaptureMock out. For Python users the main
enhancement/fix is that you can now inherit from classes that are
intercepted while not intercepting your derived class itself (if you
follow that).

More detail:

CaptureMock is a tool for creating mocks via a "true" capture-replay
style approach. It records interactions to a separate file which can
then be used for replay in future runs. It is thus not another
"EasyMock" clone. Interaction can be recaptured from a real
system at any point, and no mock code needs to be written. It handles
Python calls, command-line programs, and synchronous messaging over
networks. Custom clients can now also be written for any language.
