Hi All,

I'm pleased to announce the release of xlwt 1.0.0.

This release contains the following:

- Python 3 support.

- An initial set of unit tests.

- An initial set of Sphinx documentation.

- Move to setuptools for packaging.

- Wire up Travis, Coveralls and ReadTheDocs.

- Allow longs as row indexes.

Big thanks to Thomas Kluyver for his work on Python 3 support, Manfred 
for donating his unit tests.

Belated thanks to Landon Jurgens for his help on converting the 
to Sphinx.

If you find any problems, please ask about them on the 
python-excel at googlegroups.com list, or submit an issue on GitHub:


There's also details of all things Python and Excel related here:


NB: This is likely the last "new feature" release of xlwt. If there are 
bugs, we will try and fix them, but it may be a slow process. If you're 
starting a new project, you should probably consider openpyxl or 
xlsxwriter instead.
