Howdy all,

I am pleased to announce the release of version 2.0.4 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

This is a bug fix release, addressing packaging bugs:

* Remove custom Setuptools entry points.

  This addresses a bug reported by many people (thanks!) who found
  subsequent Setuptools actions impacted by these entry points.

* Write version info metadata using Setuptools ‘egg_info’ command.

What is the ‘python-daemon’ library?

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