Version 3.12.0 of DendroPy has been released:

http://pypi.python.org/pypi/DendroPy

Lots of changes, new features and bugfixes in this release, including:

- ``get_from_url()`` and ``read_from_url()`` methods for Tree,
TreeList,
CharacterMatrix and DataSet objects: instantiate DendroPy data
objects
from web sources seamlessly.

- New API and infrastructure for metadata annotations.
(http://packages.python.org/DendroPy/tutorial/
working_with_metadata_annotations.html)

- New module for GenBank data download and management: includes
full
representation of *all* GenBank fields, which can be serialzed
as metadata annotations.
(http://packages.python.org/DendroPy/tutorial/genbank.html)

- GBIF interoperability: ``dendropy.interop.gbif``.

- Correct calculation of splits hashes when dealing with trees
with
incomplete leaf sets

If you used 'pip' to install, then::

$ sudo pip install --upgrade dendropy

If you used 'setuptools', then::

$ sudo easy_install -U dendropy

Otherwise simply download the archive and run::

$ sudo setup.py install

Of course, the true geeks and hackers amongst you will have cloned the
GitHub repo, and are running 'live' out of that, so you would just
need to::

$ git pull
