I'm pleased to announce a new release of Mailinglogger.

Mailinglogger provides two handlers for the standard python
logging framework that enable log entries to be emailed either as the
entries are logged or as a summary at the end of the running process.

The handlers have the following features:

- customisable and dynamic subject lines for emails sent

- emails sent with an X-Mailer header for easy filtering

- flood protection to ensure the number of emails sent is not excessive

- support for SMTP servers that require authentication

- fully documented and tested

In addition, extra support is provided for configuring the handlers when
using ZConfig, Zope 2 or Zope 3.

The latest releases of ZConfig, in particular, provide a great way to 
configure the python logging framework without having to resort to the 
appalling .ini-based configuration stuff:

 >>> from ZConfig import configureLoggers
 >>> configureLoggers('''
... <logger>
...    level INFO
...    <logfile>
...       PATH STDOUT
...       format %(levelname)s %(name)s %(message)s
...    </logfile>
... </logger>
... ''')

This release of MailingLogger adds the ability to use %(levelname)s in 
subject-line formatting for SummarisingLoggers to include the highest 
level logged.
