Hello to everybody, and Emacs users in the Python community.
Pymacs 0.25 is now available. There has been a while, so I advise current Pymacs
users to switch with caution.
- Python 3 is now supported. This required new installation mechanics,
and a Python pre-processor written for the circumstance (named *pppp*).
- Pymacs now installs a single Python file instead of a Python module.
Nice thanks to Pymacs contributors. It surely has been fun working with you all!
Pymacs is a powerful tool which, once started from Emacs, allows
both-way communication between Emacs Lisp and Python. Pymacs aims
Python as an extension language for Emacs rather than the other way
around, and this asymmetry is reflected in some design choices. Within
Emacs Lisp code, one may load and use Python modules. Python functions
may themselves use Emacs services, and handle Emacs Lisp objects kept in
Emacs Lisp space.
