This is to inform you about the new stable release of Nuitka. Please see the page "What is Nuitka?" for clarification of what it is now and what it wants to be.
This release is the one that completes the Nuitka "sun rise phase".
All of Nuitka is now released under Apache License 2.0 which is a very liberal license,
and compatible with basically all Free Software licenses there are. It's only
asking to allow integration, of what you send back, and patent grants for the
In the first phase of Nuitka development, I wanted to keep control over Nuitka,
so it wouldn't repeat mistakes of other projects. This is no longer a concern
for me, it's not going to happen anymore.
I would like to thank Debian Legal team, for originally bringing to my
attention, that this license will be better suited, than any copyright
assignment could be.
The compiled functions could not be used with multiprocessing or
copy.copy. Issue#19. Fixed in 0.3.22.1
In-place operations for slices with not both bounds specified crashed the
compiler. Issue#36. Fixed in 0.3.22.1
Cyclic imports could trigger an endless loop, because module import
expressions became the parent of the imported module object. Issue#37. Fixed in 0.3.22.2 already.
Modules named proc or func could not be compiled to modules or
embedded due to a collision with identifiers of CPython2.7 includes. Issue#38. Fixed in 0.3.22.2 already.
The fix for Issue#19 also makes pickling
of compiled functions available. As it is the case for non-compiled functions
in CPython, no code objects are stored, only names of module level variables.
Using the Apache License 2.0 for all of Nuitka now.
Speedcenter has been re-activated, but is not yet having a lot of benchmarks
yet, subject to change.
We have given up on speedcenter meanwhile, and generate static pages with
Changed the "CPython26" tests to no longer disable the parts that relied on
copying of functions to work, as Issue#19
is now supported.
Extended in-place assignment tests to cover error cases of Issue#36.
Extended compile library test to also try and compile the path where numpy
lives. This is apparently another path, where Debian installs some modules,
and compiling this would have revealed Issue#36 sooner.
The release contains bug fixes, and the huge step of changing the license. It is made in preparation to
