 - Updates to the random module:
 
-  * Document which parts of the module are guaranteed to stay the same
-    across versions and which parts are subject to change.

-  * Update the seed() method to use all of the bits in a string
-    instead of just the hash value.  This makes better use of the
-    seed value and assures the seeding is platform independent.
-    Issue #7889.
-
-  * Improved the random()-->integer algorithm used in choice(),
-    shuffle(), sample(), randrange(), and randint().  Formerly, it
-    used int(n*random()) which has a slight bias whenever n is not
-    a power of two.  Issue #9025.

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.
