Howdy all,

I am pleased to announce the release of version 2.0 of the
‘python-daemon’ library.

The current release is always available at

The project's forums and VCS are hosted at Alioth

Significant changes since the previous version

* Supports Python 2 (version 2.7 or later) and Python 3 (version 3.2
  or later) with the same code base.

  This version drops support for Python earlier than Python 2.7.

  This constitutes a major re-write of large parts of the test suite,
  packaging code, and library code. Please test carefully and report any
  regressions from earlier versions.

* Full unit test coverage of all code branches.

* Add explicit credit for contributors.

What is the ‘python-daemon’ library?

‘python-daemon’ is a Python library to implement a well-behaved Unix
daemon process.
