Hello all,

We're glad to announce the release of fades 8.1.

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?

- Automatically execute scripts from the web, supporting most common pastebins

- Multiple (and missing) requirement.txt file support, which can now be nested

- Avoid checking package availability if no PyPI dependencies indicated

- Add an option to show the virtualenv path in the system

- Better error/help on missing indicated script or executable from dependency

- Improved logs, PyPI urls, documentation, multiplatform support, and
several other small fixes/enhancements

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):

Andrés Delfino - https://github.com/andresdelfino
Iñaki Malerba - https://github.com/inakimalerba
Martin Alderete - https://github.com/malderete

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

old fashion way:

cd fades-*
