 ANN: dnspython 1.0.0a1

I'm pleased to announce the initial release of dnspython!


dnspython is a DNS toolkit for Python. It supports all of the common
record types, and will support all types. It can be used for queries,
zone transfers, and dynamic updates.  It supports TSIG authenticated
messages and EDNS0.

dnspython provides both high and low level access to DNS. The high
level classes perform queries for data of a given name, type, and
class, and return an answer set.  The low level classes allow direct
manipulation of DNS zones, messages, names, and records.

To see a few of the ways dnspython can be used, look at


dnspython originated at Nominum where it was developed to facilitate
the testing of DNS software.  Nominum has generously allowed it to be
open sourced under a BSD-style license, and helps support its future
development by continuing to employ the author :).


This is dnspython 1.0.0a1, the first release of dnspython.  Although
the software is already useful, there are a number of things to do
before the first stable release, including: implementing the rest of
the DNS rdata types, improving the documentation, and thorough testing.


Python 2.2 or later.


To build and install dnspython, type

        python install
