New releases of Hovercraft!, svg.path, pyroma, tzlocal, spiny and skynet.

March 1, 2016
  • Hovercraft! is a tool to make Prezi-style presentations from human-readable text files. Version 2.1 fixes a bunch of bugs, drops Python 3.2 support and adds support for having multiple css-files.
  • svg.path is a collection of objects that implement the different path commands in SVG, and a parser for SVG path definitions. 2.1.1 adds an error-parameter to many functions so you can specify the amount of error you need in calculations, where a higher error means faster calculations.
  • Pyroma tests your Python-project’s packaging friendliness. 2.0.0 changes how data is extracted from setup.py, and now works with pbr and other tools that extends distutils to store the metadata outside setup.py.
  • tzlocal returns a tzonfo oject with the local timezone information. 1.2.1 is a bugfix release.
  • Spiny tests your package under multiple Python versions, like tox, but I like it better. If you can run your tests with “setup.py test” and you have specified supported versions as package classifiers, you don’t need any project configuration. Version 0.5 is the first release that is usable, really.
  • Skynet is a module that doesn’t want to die. It’s purpose is to demonstrate Python’s exit hooks and signal handling.
