stevedore 0.15

What is stevedore?

   Python makes loading code dynamically easy, allowing you to configure
   and extend your application by discovering and loading extensions
   (plugins) at runtime. Many applications implement their own library for
   doing this, using __import__ or importlib. [1]stevedore avoids creating
   yet another extension mechanism by building on top of [2]setuptools
   entry points. The code for managing entry points tends to be
   repetitive, though, so stevedore provides manager classes for
   implementing common patterns for using dynamically loaded extensions.

What's New?

     * Only log errors from loading plugins if no error handler callback
       is provided.
