PlainBox Providers for Everyone

With the imminent release of PlainBox 0.5.2 providers with native executables (read: compiled code) are a reality.

Have a look at https://github.com/plainbox-providers/ for two very simple examples. Fork them, star them, share them, edit them, break them.

The final release of PlainBox will be made to pypi, Debian synchronized to Ubuntu. Early builds are already available in our PPA (as soon as the recipe builds finish).

About PlainBox: PlainBox is a toolkit consisting of python3 library, development tools, documentation and examples. It is targeted at developers working on testing or certification applications and authors creating tests for such applications.

PlainBox 0.5b1 released

I've just released the latest version of PlainBox. The 0.5b1 release is available on pypi. A list of changes, and a lot of other documentation, is available on readthedocs. This release was long in the making, bringing a number of important features and bug fixes.

Updated Debian packages should be made available tomorrow. The final release is expected early next week after which I will try to get a Feature Freeze Exception and sync it to Ubuntu 14.04.
