I'm pleased to announce the release of version 1.5.1 of ‘python-daemon’.
What is python-daemon
The ‘python-daemon’ library is the reference implementation of PEP 3143
<URL:http://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-3143/>, “Standard daemon process
The source distribution is available via the PyPI page for this version,
<URL:http://pypi.python.org/pypi/python-daemon/1.5.1/>. The latest
version is always available via the library's PyPI page
What's new in this version
Since version 1.4.8 the following significant improvements have been
* Raise specific errors on failures from the library, distinguishing
different conditions better.
* Write the PID file using correct OS locking and permissions.
* Implement ‘PIDLockFile’ as subclass of ‘lockfile.LinkFileLock’.
The ‘PIDLockFile’ and ‘TimeoutPIDLockFile’ implementation is in the
process of migrating to the more specific ‘lockfile’ library, with the
assistance of Skip Montanaro; at some future point it will no longer be
part of ‘python-daemon’.
