Transition to a new namespace¶
Since version 2.1, we’re transitioning to another name:
is to align
xoutil as a fundamental part of our family of projects under
xotl namespace. Xotl is a Nahuatl word which may stand for
xoutil is part of the foundation of many of our projects.
Backwards compatible imports¶
Since 2.1, every module importable from
xoutil is actually under the
xotl.tools; so importing, for instance, from
xoutil.future.datetime should be updated to
xoutil will still be possible in all versions before 3.0.
You won’t have to change all your imports right away.
Will continue to distribute both xotl.tools and xoutil (with the same codebase) for the entire 2.1.x series. From
version 2.2.0+ will distruibute only
xotl.tools, but keep the backwards
import up to 3.0.
Don’t depend on both
xotl.tools. We use the
same codebase for both distributions; which means you’ll get the same code,
but if you install different versions you may get a crippled system.
