Python 2.7.9rc1 is out for testing! Please give it a spin and report any issues to bugs.python.org as this release will contain a bunch of security improvements related to SSL.

"""
Python 2.7.9rc1 is the first release candidate for the next bugfix version of the Python 2.7 series. Python 2.7.9 will include several significant changes unprecedented in a "bugfix" release:

* The entirety of Python 3.4's ssl module has been backported for Python 2.7.9. See PEP 466 for justification.
* HTTPS certificate validation using the system's certificate store is now enabled by default. See PEP 476 for details.
* SSLv3 has been disabled by default due to the POODLE attack.
* The ensurepip module module has been backported, which provides the pip package manager in every Python 2.7 installation. See PEP 477.

Python 2.7.7 has been released!

And an FYI in case you were not at PyCon or didn't hear about it afterwards, Python 2.7 support will exist until 2020 (http://legacy.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0373/).

It now supports (again) running asyncio coroutines.

En terme de nouveautés, Python 3.4 est la version de Python qui en apporte le plus ! Il y a pas moins de 7 nouveaux modules entre Python 3.4 et 3.3 (séparés de 18 mois), tandis qu'entre Python 3.3 et Python 2.7 (séparés de 27 mois) il y en a 8. En terme de propositions d'améliorations de Python, 14 PEP (Python Enhancement Proposals) ont été implémentées dans Python 3.4. Cette version donne un sérieux coup de vieux à Python 2.7.

tracemallocqt: GUI to analyze tracemalloc snapshots

To prepare my conference on tracemalloc for Pycon Montréal next month, I wrote a GUI to analyze tracemalloc snapshots: "tracemallocqt". https://bitbucket.org/haypo/tracemallocqt

I'm looking for testers and feedback on the GUI:
