PyUtilib 5.0.3478 Release

We are pleased to announce the release of PyUtilib 5.0 (5.0.3478). The PyUtilib project supports the development of an ensemble of Python packages that include a wide variety of utilities, including a well- developed component architecture.

The following are highlights of this release:

  • Integrating many PyUtilib sub-packages into a single source tree
  • Integrating the Coopr plugin framework in pyutilib.component.core
    • Adding a forcedskip option, which can be used to add tests that are skipped due to external factors.
    • Extending baseline tests to allow comparison with YAML, XML and JSON files.
  • pyutilib.pyro
    • Changes to support clearing the dispatcher queue
    • Allowing more control of blocking behavior when calling dispatcher
    • Adding randomization of the sleep interval in a pyro client, following failure to initially connect to a name server.
  • pyutilib.misc
    • Allowing None tolerance when comparing YAML files.
    • Adding support for gzip and bz2 compressed files, which act as single file archives
    • Adding support to open readonly file objects (using the open() method) rather than only supporting file extractions to disk

See for instructions for getting started with PyUtilib. PyUtilib can be downloaded from PyPI.
