PyProtocols 0.9.3 release candidate 2 is now available for 
download.  Assuming there are no bugs reported in the next 3-4 weeks, it 
will become the 0.9.3 final release in early August.  (The 0.9.3rc2 
revision fixes a bug in the '--without-speedups' version of 0.9.3rc1, as 
reported by Matthew Scott.)


What is PyProtocols?
--------------------

PyProtocols is an extended implementation of PEP 246, adding a new 
"declaration  API" that lets you easily define your own interfaces and 
adapters, and declare what adapters should be used to adapt what types, 
objects, or interfaces.  Using PyProtocols, you can easily make flexible 
frameworks that you or other developers can extend without needing to 
modify the base framework.  PyProtocols interfaces can interoperate with 
those of Twisted and Zope, or can be used entirely standalone.

PyProtocols may be used, modified, and distributed under the same terms and 
conditions as Python or Zope.


What's new in version 0.9.3rc1? (Highlights)
--------------------------------------------

* Adapter factories can now accept just one argument, the way Twisted and 
Zope adapters do.

* Interface and protocol objects can be called, as a shortcut for 'adapt()' 
(as Zope and Twisted interfaces do)

* You can now more easily install PyProtocols without a C compiler, using 
the '--without-speedups' option to 'setup.py' (see the README.txt file for 
details.)

* Numerous other bug fixes and enhancements - see CHANGES.txt for details.

IMPORTANT: If you are upgrading from a previous version of PyProtocols, 
please read UPGRADING.txt for important information.  Certain rarely-used 
features have been deprecated, and others have changed slightly.  Most 
users should not experience any problems (except perhaps for 
DeprecationWarnings), but please be sure to verify this before you upgrade 
any production code from 0.9.2 to 0.9.3.
