Hello list,

Elektra provides a universal and secure framework to store configuration 
parameters in a global, hierarchical key database. The core is a small 
library implemented in C. The plugin-based framework fulfills many 
configuration-related tasks to avoid any unnecessary code duplication across 
applications while it still allows the core to stay without any external 
dependency. Elektra abstracts from cross-platform-related issues with an 
consistent API, and allows applications to be aware of other applications' 
configurations, leveraging easy application integration.

While the core is in C, both applications and soon plugins can be written in 
python. The API is complete and fully functional but not yet stable. So if 
you have any suggestions, please let us know.

Additionally the latest release added:
- python2 next to python3 bindings + lots of improvements there
- ini plugin
- 3 way merge
- tab completion
- for more details see:

 md5sum: 4996df62942791373b192c793d912b4c

Make sure to enable BUILD_SWIG and BUILD_SWIG_PYTHON2 or BUILD_SWIG_PYTHON3.
