-----

1.5.0

-----
  
  - Removed support for Python 2.4. This is because py.test no longer supports

  - Pull request 24: Add __dir__ special method to six.moves modules.

  respectively to itertools.izip_longest and itertools.ifilterfalse on Python 2
  and itertools.zip_longest and itertools.filterfalse on Python 3.
  
  - Issue 25: Add the unichr function, which returns a string for a Unicode
  codepoint.

  - Add helpers for indexing and iterating over bytes: iterbytes and indexbytes.
  
  - Add create_bound_method() wrapper.
  
  - Issue 23: Allow multiple base classes to be passed to with_metaclass.
  
  - Issue 24: Add six.moves.range alias. This exactly the same as the current
  xrange alias.

  bunch of things which are in urllib in Python 3 and spread out across urllib,
  urllib2, and urlparse in Python 2.

  in Python 3.2+.
  
  - Issue 16: Rename Python 2 exec_'s arguments, so casually calling exec_ with
  keyword arguments will raise.
  
  - Issue 14: Put the six.moves package in sys.modules based on the name six is
  imported under.
  
  - Fix Jython detection.
  
  - Pull request 4: Add email_mime_multipart, email_mime_text, and
  email_mime_base to six.moves.

1.2.0

-----
  
  - Issue 13: Make iterkeys/itervalues/iteritems return iterators on Python 3
  instead of iterables.
  
  - Issue 11: Fix maxsize support on Jython.

  - Use the builtin next() function for advance_iterator() where is available
  (2.6+), not just Python 3.
