Hi Daniel - It's more of the latter, if I recall correctly.
Digging turned up this: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ZOOKEEPER-579where one of the tests fails in an python < 2.6 (but fails due to a testing framework incompatibility I think!), and the README was, perhaps conservatively, updated to say that only 2.6 is tested. I haven't personally tested a recent zkpython against <2.6, but I am hopeful that 2.5 will work correctly. I'd encourage you to try it! The zkpython in 3.3.1 is much improved over earlier versions, so it's worth the upgrade. cheers, Henry On 11 June 2010 12:07, Daniel Thumim <dthu...@itasoftware.com> wrote: > Hello, > > While upgrading to the 3.3.1 release, I noticed that zkPython > now has a stated dependency on python 2.6.
