Pyrex 0.8 is now available:

This release introduces a new compile-time import mechanism
for sharing declarations between Pyrex modules, and a new
and better way of getting access to external extension
types. There are also a few other improvements and bug

Note: There is a small backwards-incompatible change
that will require you to make a slight modification to any
'extern' extension type declarations that you have.

See the CHANGES.txt file for full details.

What is Pyrex?

Pyrex is a new language for writing Python extension modules.
It lets you freely mix operations on Python and C data, with
all Python reference counting and error checking handled
