    ANNOUNCING mx Base Distribution

    Version 3.2.0 for Python 2.4 - 2.7

    Open Source Python extensions providing
    important and useful services
    for Python programmers.

    This announcement is also available on our web-site for online reading:



    The mx Base Distribution for Python is a collection of
    professional quality software tools which enhance Python's usability
    in many important areas such as fast text searching, date/time
    processing and high speed data types.

    The tools have a proven record of being portable across many Unix and
    Windows platforms. You can write applications which use the tools on
    Windows and then run them on Unix platforms without change due to the
    consistent platform independent interfaces.

    Contents of the distribution:

    * mxDateTime - Easy to use Date/Time Library for Python
    * mxTextTools - Fast Text Parsing and Processing Tools for Python
    * mxProxy - Object Access Control for Python
    * mxBeeBase - On-disk B+Tree Based Database Kit for Python
    * mxURL - Flexible URL Data-Type for Python
    * mxUID - Fast Universal Identifiers for Python
    * mxStack - Fast and Memory-Efficient Stack Type for Python
    * mxQueue - Fast and Memory-Efficient Queue Type for Python
    * mxTools - Fast Everyday Helpers for Python

    All available packages have proven their stability and usefulness in
    many mission critical applications and various commercial settings all
    around the world.

    For more information, please see the distribution page:



    The 3.1.3 release of the eGenix mx Base Distribution is the latest
    release of our open-source Python extensions.

    The new version provides major enhancements of the included
    packages. To highlight a few:

    * Added support for Python 2.7 on all supported platforms.
    * Added native Window x64 support.

    * Included many news features in mxDateTime to enhance
    interoperability with Python's datetime module and to increase
    overall performance:

    o Mixed type support to allow operations between mxDateTime objects
    and Python's datetime module

    o New constructor methods on the objects to easily switch from
    mxDateTime objects to datetime module objects.

    o New constructor support to easily switch back from datetime
    module objects to mxDateTime objects

    * Added new mx.Misc.Daemon module which provides abstractions to
    implement Unix daemon processes.

    * Added code cleanups and switched to Python's own memory allocator,
    which results in performance enhancements across all subpackages.

    * Added back easy_install support and included pip support.

    As always, we are providing pre-built binaries for all common
    platforms: Windows 32/64-bit, Linux 32/64-bit, FreeBSD 32/64-bit, Mac
    OS X 32/64-bit. Source code archives are available for installation on
    all other Python platforms, such as Solaris, AIX, HP-UX, etc.

    To simplify installation in Zope/Plone and other egg-based systems, we
    have also precompiled egg distributions for all platforms. These are
    available on our own PyPI-style index server for easy and automatic

    Whether you are using a pre-built package or the source distribution,
    installation is a simple "python install" command in all
    cases. The only difference is that the pre-built packages do not
    require a compiler or the Python development packages to be installed.
