Announcing the release of SortedContainers version 0.9.5

What is SortedContainers?

SortedContainers is an Apache2-licensed, pure-Python implementation of
sorted list, sorted dict, and sorted set data types that is fast-as-C
implementations with 100% code coverage and hours of stress testing.
The project is fully documented with performance benchmarks and
comparisons to alternative implementations.

What's new in 0.9.5?

- Added bisect_key, bisect_key_left, and bisect_key_right methods to
  SortedListWithKey, SortedDict, and SortedSet data types. If you're
  using a key function, you can now directly bisect the key value.
- Added last=True keyword argument to SortedDict.popitem (mirrors the
  OrderedDict.popitem api).
- Minor performance improvements to indexing.
- Minor documentation improvements.
