PSF: New pip resolver to roll out this year

수, 2020/03/25 - 2:23오전
The Python Software Foundation blog looks at some changes to pip, the Python Package installer, in the process of developing a new resolver. The new resolver will reduce inconsistency and be stricter, refusing to install two packages with incompatible requirements. Also, this is a major change to a key part of pip - it's quite possible there will initially be bugs. We would like to make sure that those get caught before people start using the new version in production. [...]

We recognize that everyone's work is being disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic, and that many data scientists and medical researchers use Python and pip in their work. We want to make the upgrade process as smooth and bug-free as possible for our users; if you can help us, you'll be helping each other.

Parrot OS 4.8 released

화, 2020/03/24 - 12:38오전
Parrot OS is a security and privacy focused distribution, with tools for cyber security operations. Parrot 4.8 follows Debian testing and has many updates from the Debian repositories. Parrot Docker containers allow you to use Parrot tools on docker-supported operating systems. Since the previous release last September the Parrot team has put some effort into re-organizing its internal structure, from the operations and workflow of developers, up to the infrastructure. "After such a huge work, we have finally moved to the new workflow, and Parrot 4.8 is the proof of how hard we wanted such changes to take place in the project and how smooth development and cooperation became after achieving this goal."
