Hello all,

We're glad to announce the release of fades 7.

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?

- Pre-check if everything requested is really available in PyPI before
starting to install them

- Ignore duplicated dependencies

- Several enhancements and fixes in the messages fades shows in verbose mode

- Forbid fades misusing: installing it with legacy Python and running
it from inside another virtualenv

- Lot of project related improvements (not visible directly to final
user, though) and some small bug fixes

Nicolás and I want to say a big thank you to the following collaborators
that helped to improve and enhance fades in different ways for this
version (in alphabetical order):

    Evan -
    Juan Carlos -
    Rotem Yaari -

To install and enjoy fades...

  (but probably won't get *latest* fades:

    yaourt -S fades

  old fashion way:
