CodeInvestigator 0.8.0

CodeInvestigator version 0.8.0 was released on April 02.

A usability change was made:
    A user's Python files are listed in the Files screen. The  
directory/directories for these files is specified in the Settings  
screen.
    A user now has an additional way to change this:
    Clicking the directory name in the Files screen.

CodeInvestigator is a tracing tool for Python programs.

Running a program through CodeInvestigator creates a recording.  
Program flow, function calls, variable values and conditions are all  
stored for every line the program executes.
The recording is then viewed with an interface consisting of the  
code. The code can be clicked: A clicked variable displays its value,  
a clicked loop displays its iterations.
You read code, and have at your disposal all the run time details of  
that code. A computerized desk check tool and another way to learn  
about your program.

musync 0.3 beta

Musync is an command-line interface tagger which uses mutagen to read 
meta data from music-files, and tries to create a sane file structure 
from the collected tags.

It utilizes sub processing for file handling which enables it to execute 
practically any command desirable.

It's weakness is that it relies on the files meta data to be correct so 
you must manually tag all the files beforehand. This is not a feature 
planned in future releases. Use an external program like PicardTagger 
for this purpose.

Musync is not an interactive tool, it will never prompt for anything but 
try to make intelligent choices from the arguments received at execution.

I'm in desperate need of third party testers to try this out for errors, 
and hoped there were someone interested in slaughtering their 
music-library for the sake of organization.

I use this tool myself, since i find gui-apps annoying and haven't found 
a reasonable alternative to this.

theres also instructions on how to get a snapshot (using svn), but I've 
also created a small http-wrapper so you can download the snapshot in a 
.tar.gz.

read more at: http://trac.ostcon.org/trac/wiki/MuSync

0.3 Beta is just an internal version count, don't take it too seriously 
a.t.m. It could just as-well be called r450.

RELEASED Python 2.6a2 and 3.0a4


On behalf of the Python development team and the Python community, I'm  
happy to announce the second alpha release of Python 2.6, and the  
fourth alpha release of Python 3.0.

Please note that these are alpha releases, and as such are not  
suitable for production environments.  We continue to strive for a  
high degree of quality, but there are still some known problems and  
the feature sets have not been finalized.  These alphas are being  
released to solicit feedback and hopefully discover bugs, as well as  
allowing you to determine how changes in 2.6 and 3.0 might impact  
you.  If you find things broken or incorrect, please submit a bug  
report at

    http://bugs.python.org

For more information and downloadable distributions, see the Python  
2.6 web
site:

    http://www.python.org/download/releases/2.6/

and the Python 3.0 web site:

    http://www.python.org/download/releases/3.0/

We are planning one more alpha release of each version, followed by  
two beta releases, with the final releases planned for August 2008.   
See PEP 361 for release details:

PyGtk, PyGtkGlExt Windows all in one installer

 I realized a PyGtk all in one installer for Windows.

You can download it from here:
http://www.bonifazi.eu/appunti/pygtk_windows_installer.exe

It is simply an assembling of all the different installers I
previously downloaded (which are executed step by step), and you can
choose.

I realized this installer using EclipseNSIS and compiling the script
generated by NSIS.
Then, the script I created and that you can compile and modify using
NSIS is the following:

http://www.bonifazi.eu/appunti/pygtk_windows_installer.nsi

I give also the links of the webpages where I got the different
installers:
http://www.bonifazi.eu/appunti/2008/04/pygtk-all-in-one-installer.html

I'll try to keep update this installer.

I hope it could be useful to someone.

Bye.

setuptools_bzr 1.1


I'm happy to announce the setuptools_bzr 1.1 plugin for Python's  
setuptools.  This allows setuptools to find your Python package files  
kept under the Bazaar revision control system.  setuptools_bzr 1.1  
should be compatible with Bazaar 1.3.

This version fixes bug #178159 where directories were being  
incorrectly returned from the file finder.

setuptools_bzr 1.1 is available in egg and source tarball format on  
the Python Package Index (a.k.a. Cheeseshop):

	http://pypi.python.org/pypi/setuptools_bzr/1.1

To use the plugin, just modify your setup() function in setup.py like  
so:

setup(...
    setup_requires = [
        'setuptools_bzr',
        ],
    ...)

The project home page is on Launchpad:

	https://launchpad.net/setuptoolsbzr

Enjoy,
-Barry
