Nuitka Release 0.1.1
I just have just updated Nuitka to version 0.1.1 which is a bug fix release to 0.1, which corrects many of the small things:
Updated the CPython test suite to 2.6.6rc and minimized much of existing differences in the course.
Compiles standalone executable that includes modules (with –deep option), but packages are not yet included successfully.
Reference leaks with exceptions are no more.
sys.exc_info()works now mostly as expected (it’s not a stack of exceptions).
More readable generated code, better organisation of C++ template code.
Restored debug option
The biggest thing probably is the progress with exception tracebacks
objects in exception handlers, which were not there before (always
None). Having these in place will make it much more compatible. Also
with manually raised exceptions and assertions, tracebacks will now be
more correct to the line.
On a bad news, I discovered that the
compiler module that I use to
create the AST from Python source code, is not only deprecated, but also
broken. I created the CPython bug
about it, basically it cannot distinguish some code of the form
= None from
d = None. This will require a migration of the
ast module, which should not be too challenging, but will take some
I am aiming at it for a 0.2 release. Generating wrong code (Nuitka sees
d = None in both cases) is a show blocker and needs a solution.
So, yeah. It’s better, it’s there, but still experimental. You will find its latest version here. Please try it out and let me know what you think in the comments section.
