Hello all,

We're glad to announce the release of fades 4.9 (the release candidate
for fades 5, which should happen in a week or so).

    PLEASE! Help us to test this release candidate these few days, so
    version 5 comes out rock solid. Thanks! :)

fades is a system that automatically handles the virtualenvs in the
cases normally found when writing scripts and simple programs, and
even helps to administer big projects.

It will automagically create a new virtualenv (or reuse a previous
created one), installing the necessary dependencies, and execute
your script inside that virtualenv.

You only need to execute the script with fades (instead of Python) and
also mark the required dependencies. More details here:

What's new in this release?

- Support for passing parameters through configuration files.

- New option --check-updates to find new releases in PyPI of already
  used dependencies (thanks Diego Duncan).

- fades now transmit back the error code from child process to
  whoever called it

- Fixed the extra parameter handling when fades was used in the shebang.

- Dependencies indicated in docstring now are properly utilized.

- Updated the package names DB.

- Improved logging information and error reporting.

- Better documentation (new IRC channel, help fixes, better links, etc)

- Other minor bugfixes and improvements

To get it, note that this release candidate is not widely distributed,
so please install it from the .deb ...

... from the tarball ...

... or try it directly from the project:

    git clone
    cd fades

Help / questions:

- You can ask any question or send any recommendation or request
  to the mailing list...

Thanks in advance for your time!
