pydb for Debian
---------------

pydb is under a new management! As its new developer Rocky Bernstein wrote:

A little about pydb development. Active development on Pydb stopped sometime
around 2000. Richard Wolff who was working on that and the python debugger as
a parallel (not unified) efforts has retired. About the beginning of 2006 I
wanted to add a restart to the stock python debugger, pdb. With Richard
Wolff's blessing, I took over the name pydb. Since then I've merged in
improvements that had gone on in pdb with those in pydb that were not in pdb
(in particular display expressions). And many new things have been added
guided by the gdb interface. The next release of ddd will no longer distribute
a version of the 1999 pydb, but will use the pydb that is now maintained
outside of ddd. (And of course, ddd also benefits from the new features added
to pydb.)
