a new version of PyCrash is released new features and improvement.You
can download it at:



* PyCrash now handles correctly new-style classes
* Added onExceptionRaised() method to PyCrash class, which notifies when
  and how many times an uncaught exception is raised
* Now all PyCrash classes inherit from "object"
* Added new utils.Encrypt.py module, that contains the
  EncryptedPyCrash class. This class allows developers to
  automatically encrypt crash dumps using RSA algorithm, in order to
  protect sensible data
* Added two scripts: keygen.py and decrypt.py that allow user to
  generate public/private key pair and decrypt file generated by
  EncryptedPyCrash class.

Moreover, starting from release 0.2.1, PyCrash is distributed under the
of LGPL software license.

A next version of PyCrash Viewer will come soon, in order to support
new features.

About PyCrash Project:
PyCrash is a Run-Time Exception Dumper which handles uncaught exceptions
during the execution of Python programs and collects information about
the program context. PyCrash can be very useful in report bug
because the programmer can easily analyse the program execution context
of the crashed application.

Major information collected by PyCrash in the crash dump is:

- Information about operating system, Python and Python Standard
  Library version and general information about the program that is
  crashed (e.g., program name and version, time at witch program
  started and ended, and so on)

- Information about the uncaught exceptions, like the exception type,
  the context (namely method name) in which the exception occurred and
  the exception value

- General information about variables state

- Information about the stack of each thread, like the list of stack
  frames, the variables value in each stack frame, and so on

- General information about source code, like variable and function
  position in source file that can be useful for the programmer to find
  quickly bugs in source tree

The format of the crash dump file generated by PyCrash is XML, so the
programmer can easily read this file to understand why the program is

Now, is also available a GUI browser, named PyCrash Viewer, which allows
developers to analyze quickly and easily PyCrash crash dump files in a
graphical manner.

Next version of PyCrash will include at least these features:
* HTML dumper, that stores crash dump in HTML format rather then
