Spread Module 1.4
Release date: October 23, 2003
This is a Python extension module for Spread, an open source group
communications package. The extension module was written by engineers
at Zope Corporation, primarily Jeremy Hylton, Guido van Rossum and Tim
Peters. It is released under the standard PSF open source license.
Here is basic documentation for the Spread
Module; it assumes familiarity with the Spread man pages.

What's New in Version 1.4
- Updated to use the libraries supplied by Spread 3.17 (now required).
- Added PyPI / Trove metadata to setup.py.
- This code works with Python 2.1, Python 2.2, and Python 2.3.
It doesn't work with earlier Python versions. It should work
with later versions.
- The code requires Spread 3.17.1.
- Operating systems
- The code works on various Linux versions (e.g. Red Hat 7.2 and
Mandrake 8.1), and on Windows 98; we expect that it works fine
on various Unix platforms as long as you have Spread and Python
