Announcing pythonwhois 2.0.0!

24 Nov 2013

It took some work, but it's finally done: pythonwhois 2.0.0!

pythonwhois is, simply put, a WTFPL-licensed library for retrieving and parsing WHOIS data for a domain. It'll give you all the data in a nice, consistent, structured format - instead of the giant inconsistent mess that WHOIS responses normally are.

New in version 2.0.0:

To install it, just run pip install pythonwhois! Documentation can be found here.

If you want to upgrade from the previous version, you can run pip install --upgrade pythonwhoishowever, the API has changed and your code will likely break. There's more information about that here.

*Update (17:13): *Looks like I botched the get_whois() method in the 2.0.0 release. A 2.0.1 version has been released that rectifies this issue, and is available from PyPi. It should now work as documented.
