py3status v2.6

Ok I was a bit too hasty in my legacy module support code clean up and I broke quite a few things on the latest version 2.5 release sorry ! 🙁

highlights

  • make use of pkgutil to detect properly installed modules even when they are zipped in egg files (manual install)
  • add back legacy modules output support (tuple of position / response)
  • new uname module inspired from issue 117 thanks to @ndalliard
  • remove dead code

thanks !

  • @coelebs on IRC for reporting, testing and the good spirit 🙂
  • @ndalliard on github for the issue, debug and for inspiring the uname module
  • @Horgix for responding to issues faster than me !

py3status v2.5

This new py3status comes with an amazing number of contributions and new modules !

24 files changed, 1900 insertions(+), 263 deletions(-)

I’m also glad to say that py3status becomes my first commit in the new git repository of Gentoo Linux !

IMPORTANT

Please note that this version has deprecated the legacy implicit module loading support to favour and focus on the generic i3status order += module loading/ordering !
