# Release History

3.1

3.0.1

• Fix some packaging issues that made it more difficult to run the tests directly from the sdist package. (:bbissue:126)

3.0

• Add Python 3 support, thanks in large part to the efforts of Daniel Kraus (:bbuser:dakra). Tested under Python 2.6, 2.7, and 3.2.

2.11.1

• Remove the initialization shortcut because it breaks tab completion in sub-shell environments like screen and tmux. (:bbissue:121)

2.11

• Add -a option to :ref:command-mkvirtualenv to associate a new virtualenv with an existing project directory. Contributed by Mike Fogel (:bbuser:mfogel).
• Drops support for Python 2.4 and 2.5. The tools may still work, but I no longer have a development environment set up for testing them, so I do not officially support them.
• Shortcut initialization if it has run before.
• Set hook log file permissions to be group-writable. (:bbissue:62 reported by :bbuser:hedgeddown)
• Add VIRTUALENVWRAPPER_PROJECT_FILENAME variable so the .project file used to link a virtualenv to a project can be renamed to avoid conflicts with other tools. (:bbissue:120 reported by :bbuser:arthuralvim)

2.10.1

2.10

2.9

2.8

2.7.2

• Move setup code for tab completion later in the startup code so all of the needed variables are configured. (:bbissue:97)
• Expand tab completion for zsh to work for all commands.

2.7.1

• When testing for WORKON_HOME during startup, dereference any symlink to make sure it is a directory.
• Set VIRTUALENVWRAPPER_HOOK_DIR and VIRTUALENV_WRAPPER_LOG DIR in virtualenvwrapper_initialize after WORKON_HOME is set (:bbissue:94).
• Update the :ref:install-basic instructions to be more explicit about needing to install virtualenvwrapper globally (or at least outside of a virtualenv).

2.7

2.6.3

• Hard-code the version information in the setup.py and conf.py scripts. This still doesn't work for http://readthedocs.org, since the doc build needs the sphinxcontrib.bitbucket extension, but will make it easier to transition the docs to another site later.

2.6.2

2.6.1

2.6

2.5.3

• Point release uploaded to PyPI during outage on doughellmann.com.

2.5.2

2.5.1

• Make :ref:command-workon list brief environment details when run without argument, instead of full details.

2.5

2.4

2.3

• Added get_env_details hook.

2.2.2

• Integrate Fred Palmer's patch to escape more shell commands to avoid aliases. Resolves :bbissue:57.
• Fix a problem with egrep argument escaping (:bbissue:55).
• Fix a problem with running mkvirtualenv without arguments (:bbissue:56).

2.2.1

• Escape which calls to avoid aliases. Resolves :bbissue:46.
• Integrate Manuel Kaufmann's patch to unset GREP_OPTIONS before calling grep. Resolves :bbissue:51.
• Escape $in regex to resolve :bbissue:53. • Escape rm to avoid issues with aliases and resolve :bbissue:50. 2.2 • Switched hook loader execution to a form that works with Python 2.4 to resolve :bbissue:43. • Tested under Python 2.7b1. See :bbissue:44. • Incorporated performance improvements from David Wolever. See :bbissue:38. • Added some debug instrumentation for :bbissue:35. 2.1.1 2.1 • Add support for ksh. Thanks to Doug Latornell for doing the research on what needed to be changed. • Test import of virtualenvwrapper.hook_loader on startup and report the error in a way that should help the user figure out how to fix it (:bbissue:33). • Update :ref:command-mkvirtualenv documentation to include the fact that a new environment is activated immediately after it is created (:bbissue:30). • Added hooks around :ref:command-cpvirtualenv. • Made deactivation more robust, especially under ksh. • Use Python's tempfile module for creating temporary filenames safely and portably. • Fix a problem with virtualenvwrapper_show_workon_options that caused it to show * as the name of a virtualenv when no environments had yet been created. • Change the hook loader so it can be told to run only a set of named hooks. • Add support for listing the available hooks, to be used in help output of commands like virtualenvwrapper.project's mkproject. • Fix mkvirtualenv -h option behavior. • Change logging so the$WORKON_HOME/hook.log file rotates after 10KiB.

2.0.2
