I’m proud to announce the availability of python-rrdtool 0.1.13. It contains backported bug fixes and improvements from the upstream repository.
Since python-rrdtool have found its way into the original rrdtool distribution, some people have asked about the future of the project. In fact, the Python bindings part of the official rrdtool distribution and the python-rrdtool are maintained separately, but they share improvements from each other. Due to the nature of release engineering, Linux distributions may see the inclusion of the updated bindings with the rrdtool bindings packages sooner or later, and users who wish to use a more pythonic way to install the bindings, python-rrdtool is the way to go for users that prefer installing packages via pip or similar utilities.
