Today, we released an update to the Epsilon package.
As JP's previous release-storm might imply, there is some more good stuff coming. In the immortal words of the
Space Harrier, "Get Ready!"
This release of Epsilon includes a new utility,
ModalType. A ModalType is a variant of a simple state machine which
allows you to provide different implementations of the 'same' method for
different 'modes' your instances can be toggled into. ModalType is generally
useful for managing the life-cycle of objects which need to queue up
requests while they are deactivated, and combined with some simple
input/output handling it can be used to implement extremely flexible
Also, as a convenience developed during releasing Epsilon itself, a new
feature for Version which makes it more convenient for use within distutils
scripts; no more running regular expressions over your setup.py every time
you do a release, or changing a version number in 6 different places!
We've also started cleaning up and documenting our release
procedure a bit.
