Hi all,

Florian Schulze just released several devpi package maintenance updates
to PyPI, see the changelogs below for details.  Upgrading is considered
safe and does not require an export/import cycle on the server side.

Note that the "devpi" metapackage is discontinued, please rather use::

    pip install devpi-server devpi-client

if you want to install both server and client.  You can also install
devpi-web if you want more web UI including search.

Docs for devpi are here, including quickstart tutorials :

have fun,


- fix issue209: argument default handling changed in argparse in Python 2.7.9.
- fix issue163: use PIP_CONFIG_FILE environment variable if set.
- fix issue191: provide return code !=0 for failures during push


- fix issue214: the whitelisting code stopped inheritance too early.

- fix regression: easy_install went to the full simple project list for a
  non existing project.

- When uploading an existing version to a non-volatile index, it's now a
  no op instead of an error if the content is identical. If the content is
  different, it's still an error.

- Uploading documentation to non-volatile indexes is now protected the same
  way as packages.

- added code to allow filtering on packages with stable version numbers.

- Change nginx template to set the X-outside-url header based on the
  requested URL.  This makes it possible to connect by IP address when
  the server name is not in DNS.


- fix issue207: added documentation url for latest stable release of a package.


- added code to allow filtering on stable version numbers.
