Pykka v1.2.0 with eventlet support and future transformations

Pykka v1.2.0 is now available from PyPI, GitHub, and APT. It’s about half a year since the previous release, during which no serious bugs have been found.

The release brings news on three fronts:

  • Futures have grown new filter(), join(), map(), and reduce() methods, which all return new futures which transform the original future’s value in various ways.

  • Support for running actors on eventlet greenlets has been contributed by Jakub Stasiak, joining our existing threading and gevent actors.

  • The behavior when messaging an actor around the time it shuts down have been improved in several ways. Parts of this was also contributed by Jakub Stasiak.
