Well, it's April the first, so what better time than this to announce
the release of a new version of bytecodehacks?
Not all that much has changed in the code; a bug fix here and there.
* The mechanism for calculating the co_stacklevel attribute of code
objects actually gets it right (at least in cases I have tested).
* xapply.xapply has gotten *much* cleverer, and much hairier. It now
supports such delights as keyword arguments, trimming the default
argument list correctly, assignments to arguments and handling
**-style arguments (but not *-style, yet). It's approaching the
point of being actually useful (scary!).
* there's the beginnings of a test suite.
Administrivia-wise, there's much more shaking up.
* bytecodehacks now live on sourceforge; start here to find the
tarballs and updated docs.
There's a mailing list, which I don't envision being very high
but I invite anyone who's interested to join for banter about the
internal structures of Python and how to (ab)use them.
* bytecodehacks now has a license, based on the deliberately liberal
Python license; please read the file LICENSE for details.
* Documentation is now being distributed separately; a tarball of the
HTML can be found on the project homepage.
As ever, all comments are welcome!
PS: I haven't sent this to python-announce, as that list appears to be
entirely dead. News to the contrary will be gratefully accepted.
well, take it from an old hand: the only reason it would be easier
to program in C is that you can't easily express complex problems
in C, so you don't. -- Erik Naggum, comp.lang.lisp
