> Dear all,
> I’m pleased to announce the release of version 2.0.0 of Comet, my implementation of the VOEvent Transport Protocol.
> Note that version 2.0.0 contains some backwards incompatible changes. Highlights of this release include:
> Drop support for Python 2.6, following the same change made in Twisted.
> Improve checking for valid IVORNs.
> Switch dependency from `ipaddr-py`_ to `py2-ipaddress`_. The latter is a
> backport of the Python 3 functionality, so this helps clear the way for an
> eventual Python 3 version of Comet.
> Use the ``$TMPDIR`` environment variable, if set, to store the event
> database. Otherwise, fall back to ``tmp``.
> Some extremely old versions of Comet (dating from before the 1.0.0
> release) used a different format for the database of seen events. All
> released versions through 1.2.2 automatically update old-style databases
> to the new format when run. As of this release, this support for legacy
> databases has been dropped. It is necessary to use a previous Comet
> release to update the database format before upgrading to this version.
> Refactoring the codebase caused a minor API change: logging facilities are
> now available from the ``comet.log`` module. End user code — notably event
> handling plugins — should replace statements to the effect of ``from
> comet.utility import log`` with ``import comet.log as log``. The
> convenience aliases ``log.msg`` and ``log.warning`` have been removed: use
> ``log.info`` and ``log.warn`` instead.
> Comet is available for download from <http://comet.transientskp.org/>. It is released under an open source (2 clause BSD) license, and development takes place at <https://github.com/jdswinbank/Comet/>. Your questions, comments, feedback and pull requests are welcome.
