 What's New in Python 2.6 final
 ==============================
 
 Extension Modules
 -----------------
 
-- Issue #4301: Patch the logging module to add processName support, remove
-  _check_logger_class from multiprocessing.
-
 - Issue #2975: When compiling several extension modules with Visual Studio 2008
   from the same python interpreter, some environment variables would grow
   without limit.
Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
