python-rrdtool 0.1.3 released

Today I’ve released python-rrdtool version 0.1.3, which fixes some bugs when building the module in build environments that do not have specific rrdtool build headers included. Now all the graph and xport functions are available again.

To update or install, use pip:

pip install -U rrdtool

There are some discussions going on about the number of Python bindings for rrdtool. The version I’ve created is just one of a few, and was probably the first one that offered Python 3.x support. Some people were asking if it may be possible to get this merged into the regular rrdtool distribution. It might be. But from a certain point of view I think it’s a better approach to distribute the bindings via PyPI, because it’s more pythonic, and it allows building for multiple Python versions at once.
