Twyt 0.9.0 - Flowers On The Ceiling

By Andrew Price, 2009-01-04 09:20:12 in General. Twyt Logo

Twyt 0.9.0 has been released and is available to download from the usual place. The python-twyt packages in Debian and Fedora will be updated shortly.

This release incorporates lots of little fixes, and updates which were required to keep up with changes to the Twitter API. Scripts which import previous versions of twyt may need updating.

The accompanying command line client, twyt, has also been improved. In particular it has better support for multiple Twitter accounts and allows you to flag one username as the default. It also now uses simplejson to store user configuration so the .ini-style config files generated with older versions of twyt will be ignored (apologies for the inconvenience, to the three people who use it).

Note that the number of Twitter API methods which twyt supports has not increased - I'll get around to adding support for more of them next time I'm in the mood. Meanwhile, if you're a Python coder and you've got nothing better to do, feel free to read the APITODO file to see what's missing and email me a patch, or the URL of your bzr branch. It's easy-peasy stuff.
