making it easier to work on more than one project at a time without
introducing conflicts in their dependencies.
-This new version uses a significantly rewritten version of the
-hook/callback subsystem to make it easier to share extensions. For
-example, released at the same time is virtualenvwrapper-emacs-desktop_,
-a plugin to switch emacs project files when you switch virtualenvs.
+The primary purpose of this release is a set of enhancements to
+support virtualenvwrapper.project_, a new extension to manage project
+work directories with templates. 2.1 also includes several smaller
-Existing user scripts should continue to work as-written. Any failures
-are probably a bug, so please report them on the bitbucket
-tracker. Documentation for the new plugin system is available in the
-I also took this opportunity to change the name of the shell script
-containing most of the virtualenvwrapper functionality from
-virtualenvwrapper_bashrc to virtualenvwrapper.sh. This reflects the
-fact that several shells other than bash are supported (bash, sh, ksh,
-and zsh are all reported to work). You'll want to update your shell
-startup file after upgrading to 2.0.
-The work to create the plugin system was triggered by a couple of
-recent feature requests for environment templates and for a new
-command to create a sub-shell instead of simply changing the settings
-of the current shell. The new, more powerful, plugin capabilities will
-make it easier to develop these and similar features.
-I'm looking forward to seeing what the community comes up with. I
-especially want someone to write a plugin to start a copy of a
-development server for a Django project if one is found in a
-virtualenv. You'll get bonus points if it opens the home page of the
-server in a web browser.
