Hi,
I'm pleased to announce the 0.1.2 release of psutil:
http://code.google.com/p/psutil

=== About ===

psutil is a module providing an interface for retrieving information
on running processes and system utilization (CPU, memory) in a
portable way by using Python, implementing many functionalities
offered by tools like ps, top and Windows task manager.
It currently supports Linux, OS X, FreeBSD and Windows.

=== Enhancements ===

Aside from fixing some bugs psutil 0.1.2 includes the following major
enhancements:

* per-process CPU user/kernel times
* per-process create time
* per-process CPU utilization percentage
* per-process memory usage (bytes)
* per-process memory utilization (percent)
* total, used and free system physical/virtual memory

As of now psutil is released to the general public, and should be
considered a beta release implementing basic functionality.
With this third release we'd like to receive feedback from users and
suggestions for additional functionality.
Patches and volunteers to test/develop for additional platforms
welcome!

Very nice. I was just contemplating writing some python code to get
information from ps (actually virtual memory size of the process) when
your announcement came along. Fortunately I had not yet started writing
the code :=)

Very nice!

Maybe you should make

  Process()

mean

  Process(os.getpid())

as I often want ask how much memory/cpu is my process using but rarely
want to ask about other processes?

It would be nice if "pydoc psutil" returned something useful also!
You could do this by replacing your current __init__.py (which just
contains "from _psutil import *") with _psutil.py

Thanks for the hints. I'll do that.
