Hello all,

bpython 0.19 has been released and is available on pypi. The changelog
follows below. If you are hit especially hard by the deprecation of
various unmaintained backends and/or the deprecation of Python 2.x
please contact me.

Regards,

supakeen

0.19
----

General information:
* The bpython-cli and bpython-urwid rendering backends have been
deprecated and
  will show a warning that they'll be removed in a future release when
started.
* Usage in combination with Python 2 has been deprecated. This does not
mean that
  support is dropped instantly but rather that at some point in the
future we will
  stop running our testcases against Python 2.
* The new pinnwand API is used for the pastebin functionality. We have
dropped
  two configuration options: `pastebin_show_url` and
`pastebin_removal_url`. If
  you have your bpython configured to run against an old version of
`pinnwand`
  please update it.

New features:

Fixes:
* #765: Display correct signature for decorated functions.
  Thanks to Benedikt Rascher-Friesenhausen.
* #776: Protect get_args from user code exceptions
* Improve lock file handling on Windows
* #791: Use importlib instead of deprecated imp when running under Python 3

Support for Python 3.8 has been added. Support for Python 3.4 has been
dropped.

Hi ! Thanks for putting this release together.

Seems like times are changing - lots of interesting changes. I will try to take a look.

Thank you for keeping support for bpython going.
