What's New in version 1.7.1
  • You will now want to use the --python option to setup.py configure to make sure the right Python (python2.x) is used. With the Python 3 transition in progress, the lack of uniformity across distros made it difficult to find a solution that works everywhere. As a result, the python executable path can be set (for subprocesses launched by Wicd) with the --python option to setup.py configure, and patching of the shebang lines may be required if `which python` is not python2.x.
  • If you handle translations in your packaging process, setup.py now needs 'pybabel' and 'xgettext' binaries. Please provide them during the build process.
  • setup.py now accepts three more parameters: --dbus-service=, --systemd= and --logrotate=. Please set them accordingly to the paths of your distribution.
