1.7.1
-----
- Issue #71: Make the six.moves meta path importer handle reloading of the six
module gracefully.
1.7.0
-----

- Pull request #32: Add six.wraps, which is like functools.wraps but always sets
the __wrapped__ attribute.

another class into the hierarchy.

1.6.1
-----
- Raise an AttributeError for six.moves.X when X is a module not available in
the current interpreter.
1.6.0
-----
- Raise an AttributeError for every attribute of unimportable modules.
- Issue #56: Make the fake modules six.moves puts into sys.modules appear not to
have a __path__ unless they are loaded.
- Pull request #28: Add support for SplitResult.
- Issue #55: Add move mapping for xmlrpc.server.
- Pull request #29: Add move for urllib.parse.splitquery.
1.5.2
-----
- Issue #53: Make the fake modules six.moves puts into sys.modules appear not to
have a __name__ unless they are loaded.
1.5.1
-----
- Issue #51: Hack around the Django autoreloader after recent six.moves changes.
1.5.0
-----
- Removed support for Python 2.4. This is because py.test no longer supports
2.4.
- Fix various import problems including issues #19 and #41. six.moves modules
are now lazy wrappers over the underlying modules instead of the actual
modules themselves.
- Issue #49: Add six.moves mapping for tkinter.ttk.
- Pull request #24: Add __dir__ special method to six.moves modules.
- Issue #47: Fix add_metaclass on classes with a string for the __slots__
variable.

- Pull request #21: Add import mapping for urllib's proxy_bypass function.
- Issue #43: Add import mapping for the Python 2 xmlrpclib module.
- Issue #39: Add import mapping for the Python 2 thread module.
- Issue #40: Add import mapping for the Python 2 gdbm module.
- Issue #35: On Python versions less than 2.7, print_ now encodes unicode
strings when outputing to standard streams. (Python 2.7 handles this
automatically.)
1.4.1
-----
- Issue #32: urllib module wrappings don't work when six is not a toplevel file.
1.4.0
-----
- Issue #31: Add six.moves mapping for UserString.
- Pull request #12: Add six.add_metaclass, a decorator for adding a metaclass to
a class.
- Add six.moves.zip_longest and six.moves.filterfalse, which correspond
respectively to itertools.izip_longest and itertools.ifilterfalse on Python 2
and itertools.zip_longest and itertools.filterfalse on Python 3.
- Issue #25: Add the unichr function, which returns a string for a Unicode
codepoint.
- Issue #26: Add byte2int function, which complements int2byte.
- Add a PY2 constant with obvious semantics.
- Add helpers for indexing and iterating over bytes: iterbytes and indexbytes.
- Add create_bound_method() wrapper.
- Issue #23: Allow multiple base classes to be passed to with_metaclass.
- Issue #24: Add six.moves.range alias. This exactly the same as the current
xrange alias.
- Pull request #5: Create six.moves.urllib, which contains abstractions for a
bunch of things which are in urllib in Python 3 and spread out across urllib,
urllib2, and urlparse in Python 2.
1.3.0
-----
- Issue #21: Add methods to access the closure and globals of a function.
- In six.iter(items/keys/values/lists), passed keyword arguments through to the
underlying method.
- Add six.iterlists().
- Issue #20: Fix tests if tkinter is not available.
- Issue #17: Define callable to be builtin callable when it is available again
in Python 3.2+.
- Issue #16: Rename Python 2 exec_'s arguments, so casually calling exec_ with
keyword arguments will raise.
- Issue #14: Put the six.moves package in sys.modules based on the name six is
imported under.
- Fix Jython detection.
- Pull request #4: Add email_mime_multipart, email_mime_text, and
email_mime_base to six.moves.
1.2.0
-----
- Issue #13: Make iterkeys/itervalues/iteritems return iterators on Python 3
instead of iterables.
- Issue #11: Fix maxsize support on Jython.
- Add six.next() as an alias for six.advance_iterator().
- Use the builtin next() function for advance_iterator() where is available
(2.6+), not just Python 3.
- Add the Iterator class for writing portable iterators.
1.1.0
-----
- Add the int2byte function.
- Add compatibility mappings for iterators over the keys, values, and items of a
dictionary.
- Fix six.MAXSIZE on platforms where sizeof(long) != sizeof(Py_ssize_t).
- Issue #3: Add six.moves mappings for filter, map, and zip.
1.0.0
-----
- Issue #2: u() on Python 2.x now resolves unicode escapes.
- Expose an API for adding mappings to six.moves.
1.0 beta 1
----------
- Reworked six into one .py file. This breaks imports. Please tell me if you
are interested in an import compatibility layer.
