Version 2.1.1
=============

:Released: 2016-01-30
:Maintainer: Ben Finney <ben+python@benfinney.id.au>

* Default ‘initgroups’ option to False. Using ‘os.initgroups’ requires
  permission to set process GID, so this now needs to be explicitly
  requested.


Version 2.1.0
=============

:Released: 2015-11-26
:Maintainer: Ben Finney <ben+python@benfinney.id.au>

* Add a DaemonContext option, ‘initgroups’, which specifies whether to
  set the daemon process's supplementary groups.
* Set the process groups using ‘os.initgroups’.
  Thanks to Malcolm Purvis for contributing an implementation of this
  feature.


Version 2.0.6
=============

:Released: 2015-08-30
:Maintainer: Ben Finney <ben+python@benfinney.id.au>

* Specify development status “Production/Stable” in Trove classifiers.
* Migrate to ‘mock’ version 1.3 with corresponding API changes.
* Use current Python concept of “basestring” to test for an attribute name.
  Thanks to Arthur de Jong for the bug report.


Version 2.0.5
=============

:Released: 2015-02-02
:Maintainer: Ben Finney <ben+python@benfinney.id.au>

* Refine compatibility of exceptions for file operations.
* Specify the text encoding when opening the changelog file.


Version 2.0.4
=============

:Released: 2015-01-23
:Maintainer: Ben Finney <ben+python@benfinney.id.au>

* Record version info via Setuptools commands.
* Remove the custom Setuptools entry points.
  This closes Alioth bug#314948.


Version 2.0.3
=============

:Released: 2015-01-14
:Maintainer: Ben Finney <ben+python@benfinney.id.au>

* Break circular import dependency for ‘setup.py’.
* Refactor all initial metadata functionality to ‘daemon._metadata’.
* Distribute ‘version’ (and its tests) only in source, not install.
* Build a “universal” (Python 2 and Python 3) wheel.


Version 2.0.2
=============

:Released: 2015-01-13
:Maintainer: Ben Finney <ben+python@benfinney.id.au>

* Declare test-time dependency on recent ‘unittest2’.
* Declare packaging-time dependency on ‘docutils’ library.
* Include unit tests for ‘version’ module with source distribution.
* Record version info consistent with distribution metadata.


Version 2.0.1
=============

:Released: 2015-01-11
:Maintainer: Ben Finney <ben+python@benfinney.id.au>

* Include the ‘version’ module with source distribution.


Version 2.0
===========

:Released: 2015-01-10

* Declare compatibility with current Python versions.
* Depend on Python 3 compatible libraries.
* Update package homepage to Alioth hosted project page.
* Use ‘pydoc.splitdoc’ to get package description text.
* Remove ASCII translation of package description, not needed now the
  docstring is a proper Unicode text value.
* Include test suite with source distribution.
* Move package metadata to ‘daemon/_metadata.py’.
* Migrate to JSON (instead of Python) for serialised version info.

  compatibility.
* Wrap function introspection for Python 3 compatibility.

* Update copyright notices.
* Add editor hints for most files.
* Distinguish continuation-line indentation versus block indentation.

* Use unicode literals by default, specifying bytes where necessary.
  This is to ease the port to Python 3, where the default string type
  is unicode.
* Update copyright notices.
* Update the GPL license file to version 3, as declared in our
  copyright notices.

* Change license of library code to Apache License 2.0. Rationale at

  installation can be found.


Version 1.5.4
=============

:Released: 2010-02-27
:Maintainer: Ben Finney <ben+python@benfinney.id.au>

Version 1.5.3
=============

:Released: 2010-02-26
:Maintainer: Ben Finney <ben+python@benfinney.id.au>

* daemon/daemon.py: Invoke the pidfile context manager's ‘__exit__’
  method with the correct arguments (as per
