Py4J 0.6 Released!

Py4J 0.6 has just been released.

This release includes the following new (and great) features:

  • New exception, Py4JJavaError, that enables Python client programs to access instance of Java exception thrown in the Java client code.
  • Improved Py4J setup: warnings are no longer displayed when installing Py4J.
  • Bug fixes and API additions.

In case you did not notice, Py4J moved to github so contributing is now easier than ever!

I plan to do at least another release (0.7) before Py4J leaves beta and moves to 1.0.

About Py4J
Py4J enables Python programs running in a Python interpreter to dynamically access Java objects in a Java Virtual Machine. Methods are called as if the Java objects resided in the Python interpreter and Java collections can be accessed through standard Python collection methods. Py4J also enables Java programs to call back Python objects. Py4J is distributed under the BSD license.
