I'm pleased to announce the 0.1.2 release of psutil:

=== About ===

psutil is a module providing an interface for retrieving information
on running processes and system utilization (CPU, memory) in a
portable way by using Python, implementing many functionalities
offered by tools like ps, top and Windows task manager.
It currently supports Linux, OS X, FreeBSD and Windows.

=== Enhancements ===

Aside from fixing some bugs psutil 0.1.2 includes the following major

 * per-process CPU user/kernel times
 * per-process create time
 * per-process CPU utilization percentage
 * per-process memory usage (bytes)
 * per-process memory utilization (percent)
 * total, used and free system physical/virtual memory

As of now psutil is released to the general public, and should be
considered a beta release implementing basic functionality.
With this third release we'd like to receive feedback from users and
suggestions for additional functionality.
Patches and volunteers to test/develop for additional platforms
