Hi all. Even without counting the Boston dev meeting March was a highly productive month. Noteworthy things include…
Stem’s tutorials got an overhaul, including:
- A much friendlier layout. No more intimidating wall of text – the tutorials have been rewritten and broken into subsections.
- "To Russia With Love" tutorial, exemplifying client usage and programmatically managing a tor process.
- "Tortoise and the Hare" tutorial, demoing tor event handling through a curses bandwidth graph.
- "Double Double Toil and Trouble", which ends the tutorials with a page of scripts and applications that use stem.
Feedback welcome! The shiny new tutorials are available at…
Thanks to a half dozen package maintainers stem is now available on several platforms, with more in the works. The most recent was the Python Package Index (PyPI), which can make stem installation as simple as ‘pip install stem’.
Google Summer of Code
The timing of this year’s winter developer meeting couldn’t have been better. During it I begged, bribed, and poked people with pointy sticks until they ‘volunteered’ to mentor something in this year’s GSoC. Thanks to them our project ideas page is no longer overly sparse. Google will be announcing the selected orgs on April 8th.
Stem Release 1.0
Last, but certainly not least I wrote numerous finishing touches for stem and made its long overdue initial release!
