        Changes & News
        .. warning::
           Python bugfix releases 2.6.8, 2.7.3, 3.1.5 and 3.2.3 include a change that
           will cause "import random" to fail with "cannot import name urandom" on any
           virtualenv created on a Unix host with an earlier release of Python
           2.6/2.7/3.1/3.2, if the underlying system Python is upgraded. This is due to
           the fact that a virtualenv uses the system Python's standard library but
           contains its own copy of the Python interpreter, so an upgrade to the system
           Python results in a mismatch between the version of the Python interpreter
           and the version of the standard library. It can be fixed by removing
           ``$ENV/bin/python`` and re-running virtualenv on the same target directory
           with the upgraded Python.
        1.11.4 (2014-02-21)
        * Updated pip to 1.5.4
        1.11.3 (2014-02-20)
        * Updated setuptools to 2.2
        * Updated pip to 1.5.3
        1.11.2 (2014-01-26)
        * Fixed easy_install installed virtualenvs by updated pip to 1.5.2
        1.11.1 (2014-01-20)
        * Fixed an issue where pip and setuptools were not getting installed when using
          the ``--system-site-packages`` flag.
        * Updated setuptools to fix an issue when installed with easy_install
        * Fixed an issue with Python 3.4 and sys.stdout encoding being set to ascii
        * Upgraded pip to v1.5.1
        * Upgraded setuptools to v2.1
        1.11 (2014-01-02)
        * **BACKWARDS INCOMPATIBLE** Switched to using wheels for the bundled copies of
          setuptools and pip. Using sdists is no longer supported - users supplying
          their own versions of pip/setuptools will need to provide wheels.
        * **BACKWARDS INCOMPATIBLE** Modified the handling of ``--extra-search-dirs``.
          This option now works like pip's ``--find-links`` option, in that it adds
          extra directories to search for compatible wheels for pip and setuptools.
          The actual wheel selected is chosen based on version and compatibility, using
          the same algorithm as ``pip install setuptools``.
        * Fixed #495, --always-copy was failing (#PR 511)
        * Upgraded pip to v1.5
        * Upgraded setuptools to v1.4
        1.10.1 (2013-08-07)
        * **New Signing Key** Release 1.10.1 is using a different key than normal with
          fingerprint: 7C6B 7C5D 5E2B 6356 A926 F04F 6E3C BCE9 3372 DCFA
        * Upgraded pip to v1.4.1
        * Upgraded setuptools to v0.9.8
        1.10 (2013-07-23)
        * **BACKWARDS INCOMPATIBLE** Dropped support for Python 2.5. The minimum
          supported Python version is now Python 2.6.
        * **BACKWARDS INCOMPATIBLE** Using ```` as an isolated script
          (i.e. without an associated ``virtualenv_support`` directory) is no longer
          supported for security reasons and will fail with an error.
          Along with this, ``--never-download`` is now always pinned to ``True``, and
          is only being maintained in the short term for backward compatibility
          (Pull #412).
        * **IMPORTANT** Switched to the new setuptools (v0.9.7) which has been merged
          with Distribute_ again and works for Python 2 and 3 with one codebase.
          The ``--distribute`` and ``--setuptools`` options are now no-op.
        * Updated to pip 1.4.
        * Added support for PyPy3k
        * Added the option to use a version number with the ``-p`` option to get the
          system copy of that Python version (Windows only)
        * Removed embedded ````, ```` and
          ```` files as part of switching to merged setuptools.
        * Fixed ``--relocatable`` to work better on Windows.
        * Fixed issue with readline on Windows.
        .. _Distribute:
        1.9.1 (2013-03-08)
        * Updated to pip 1.3.1 that fixed a major backward incompatible change of
          parsing URLs to externally hosted packages that got accidentily included
          in pip 1.3.
        1.9 (2013-03-07)
        * Unset VIRTUAL_ENV environment variable in deactivate.bat (Pull #364)
        * Upgraded distribute to 0.6.34.
        * Added ``--no-setuptools`` and ``--no-pip`` options (Pull #336).
        * Fixed Issue #373. virtualenv-1.8.4 was failing in cygwin (Pull #382).
        * Fixed Issue #378. virtualenv is now "multiarch" aware on debian/ubuntu (Pull #379).
        * Fixed issue with readline module path on pypy and OSX (Pull #374).
        * Made 64bit detection compatible with Python 2.5 (Pull #393).
        1.8.4 (2012-11-25)
        * Updated distribute to 0.6.31. This fixes #359 (numpy install regression) on
          UTF-8 platforms, and provides a workaround on other platforms:
          ``PYTHONIOENCODING=utf8 pip install numpy``.
        * When installing virtualenv via curl, don't forget to filter out arguments
          the distribute setup script won't understand. Fixes #358.
        * Added some more integration tests.
        * Removed the unsupported embedded setuptools egg for Python 2.4 to reduce
          file size.
        1.8.3 (2012-11-21)
        * Fixed readline on OS X. Thanks minrk
        * Updated distribute to 0.6.30 (improves our error reporting, plus new
          distribute features and fixes). Thanks Gabriel (g2p)
        * Added compatibility with multiarch Python (Python 3.3 for example). Added an
          integration test. Thanks Gabriel (g2p)
        * Added ability to install distribute from a user-provided egg, rather than the
          bundled sdist, for better speed. Thanks Paul Moore.
        * Make the creation of lib64 symlink smarter about already-existing symlink,
          and more explicit about full paths. Fixes #334 and #330. Thanks Jeremy Orem.
        * Give lib64 site-dir preference over lib on 64-bit systems, to avoid wrong
          32-bit compiles in the venv. Fixes #328. Thanks Damien Nozay.
        * Fix a bug with prompt-handling in ``activate.csh`` in non-interactive csh
          shells. Fixes #332. Thanks Benjamin Root for report and patch.
        * Make it possible to create a virtualenv from within a Python
          3.3. pyvenv. Thanks Chris McDonough for the report.
        * Add optional --setuptools option to be able to switch to it in case
          distribute is the default (like in Debian).
        1.8.2 (2012-09-06)
        * Updated the included pip version to 1.2.1 to fix regressions introduced
          there in 1.2.
        1.8.1 (2012-09-03)
        * Fixed distribute version used with `--never-download`. Thanks michr for
          report and patch.
        * Fix creating Python 3.3 based virtualenvs by unsetting the
          ``__PYVENV_LAUNCHER__`` environment variable in subprocesses.
        1.8 (2012-09-01)
        * **Dropped support for Python 2.4** The minimum supported Python version is
          now Python 2.5.
        * Fix `--relocatable` on systems that use lib64. Fixes #78. Thanks Branden
        * Symlink some additional modules under Python 3. Fixes #194. Thanks Vinay
          Sajip, Ian Clelland, and Stefan Holek for the report.
        * Fix ``--relocatable`` when a script uses ``__future__`` imports. Thanks
          Branden Rolston.
        * Fix a bug in the config option parser that prevented setting negative
          options with environemnt variables. Thanks Ralf Schmitt.
        * Allow setting ``--no-site-packages`` from the config file.
        * Use ``/usr/bin/multiarch-platform`` if available to figure out the include
          directory. Thanks for the patch, Mika Laitio.
        * Fix ``install_name_tool`` replacement to work on Python 3.X.
        * Handle paths of users' site-packages on Mac OS X correctly when changing
          the prefix.
        * Updated the embedded version of distribute to 0.6.28 and pip to 1.2.
        1.7.2 (2012-06-22)
        * Updated to distribute 0.6.27.
        * Fix on OS X. Fixes #8. Thanks David Schoonover.
        * Create a virtualenv-x.x script with the Python version when installing, so
          virtualenv for multiple Python versions can be installed to the same
          script location. Thanks Miki Tebeka.
        * Restored ability to create a virtualenv with a path longer than 78
          characters, without breaking creation of virtualenvs with non-ASCII paths.
          Thanks, Bradley Ayers.
        * Added ability to create virtualenvs without having installed Apple's
          developers tools (using an own implementation of ``install_name_tool``).
          Thanks Mike Hommey.
        * Fixed PyPy and Jython support on Windows. Thanks Konstantin Zemlyak.
        * Added pydoc script to ease use. Thanks Marc Abramowitz. Fixes #149.
        * Fixed creating a bootstrap script on Python 3. Thanks Raul Leal. Fixes #280.
        * Fixed inconsistency when having set the ``PYTHONDONTWRITEBYTECODE`` env var
          with the --distribute option or the ``VIRTUALENV_USE_DISTRIBUTE`` env var.
          ``VIRTUALENV_USE_DISTRIBUTE`` is now considered again as a legacy alias.
        * Fixed minor issue in `--relocatable`. Thanks, Cap Petschulat.
        * Bumped the version string in ```` up, too.
        * Fixed rST rendering bug of long description.
        1.7.1 (2012-02-16)
        * Update embedded pip to version 1.1.
        * Fix `--relocatable` under Python 3. Thanks Doug Hellmann.
        * Added environ PATH modification to Thanks Doug
          Napoleone. Fixes #14.
        * Support creating virtualenvs directly from a Python build directory on
          Windows. Thanks CBWhiz. Fixes #139.
        * Use non-recursive symlinks to fix things up for posix_local install
          scheme. Thanks michr.
        * Made activate script available for use with msys and cygwin on Windows.
          Thanks Greg Haskins, Cliff Xuan, Jonathan Griffin and Doug Napoleone.
          Fixes #176.
        * Fixed creation of virtualenvs on Windows when Python is not installed for
          all users. Thanks Anatoly Techtonik for report and patch and Doug
          Napoleone for testing and confirmation. Fixes #87.
        * Fixed creation of virtualenvs using -p in installs where some modules
          that ought to be in the standard library (e.g. `readline`) are actually
          installed in `site-packages` next to ``. Thanks Greg Haskins
          for report and fix. Fixes #167.
        * Added activation script for Powershell (signed by Jannis Leidel). Many
          thanks to Jason R. Coombs.
        1.7 (2011-11-30)
        * Gave user-provided ``--extra-search-dir`` priority over default dirs for
          finding setuptools/distribute (it already had priority for finding pip).
          Thanks Ethan Jucovy.
        * Updated embedded Distribute release to 0.6.24. Thanks Alex Gronholm.
        * Made ``--no-site-packages`` behavior the default behavior.  The
          ``--no-site-packages`` flag is still permitted, but displays a warning when
          used. Thanks Chris McDonough.
        * New flag: ``--system-site-packages``; this flag should be passed to get the
          previous default global-site-package-including behavior back.
        * Added ability to set command options as environment variables and options
          in a ``virtualenv.ini`` file.
        * Fixed various encoding related issues with paths. Thanks Gunnlaugur Thor Briem.
        * Made ```` script executable.
        1.6.4 (2011-07-21)
        * Restored ability to run on Python 2.4, too.
        1.6.3 (2011-07-16)
        * Restored ability to run on Python < 2.7.
        1.6.2 (2011-07-16)
        * Updated embedded distribute release to 0.6.19.
        * Updated embedded pip release to 1.0.2.
        * Fixed #141 - Be smarter about finding pkg_resources when using the
          non-default Python intepreter (by using the ``-p`` option).
        * Fixed #112 - Fixed path in docs.
        * Fixed #109 - Corrected doctests of a Logger method.
        * Fixed #118 - Fixed creating virtualenvs on platforms that use the
          "posix_local" install scheme, such as Ubuntu with Python 2.7.
        * Add missing library to Python 3 virtualenvs (``_dummy_thread``).
        1.6.1 (2011-04-30)
        * Start to use git-flow.
        * Added support for PyPy 1.5
        * Fixed #121 -- added sanity-checking of the -p argument. Thanks Paul Nasrat.
        * Added progress meter for pip installation as well as setuptools. Thanks Ethan
        * Added --never-download and --search-dir options. Thanks Ethan Jucovy.
        * Added Python 3 support! Huge thanks to Vinay Sajip and Vitaly Babiy.
        * Fixed creation of virtualenvs on Mac OS X when standard library modules
          (readline) are installed outside the standard library.
        * Updated bundled pip to 1.0.
        * Moved main repository to Github:
        * Transferred primary maintenance from Ian to Jannis Leidel, Carl Meyer and Brian Rosner
        * Fixed a few more pypy related bugs.
        * Updated bundled pip to 0.8.2.
        * Handed project over to new team of maintainers.
        * Moved virtualenv to Github at
        * Added ``_weakrefset`` requirement for Python 2.7.1.
        * Fixed Windows regression in 1.5
        * Include pip 0.8.1.
        * Add support for PyPy.
        * Uses a proper temporary dir when installing environment requirements.
        * Add ``--prompt`` option to be able to override the default prompt prefix.
        * Fix an issue with ``--relocatable`` on Windows.
        * Fix issue with installing the wrong version of distribute.
        * Add fish and csh activate scripts.
        * Include pip 0.7.2
        * Fix for Mac OS X Framework builds that use
        * Fix ```` on Windows.
        * Allow ``$PYTHONHOME`` to be set, so long as you use ``source
          bin/activate`` it will get unset; if you leave it set and do not
          activate the environment it will still break the environment.
        * Include pip 0.7.1
        * Include pip 0.7
        * Allow ```` to skip updating the prompt (by setting
        * Include pip 0.6.3
        * Fix ``activate.bat`` and ``deactivate.bat`` under Windows when
          ``PATH`` contained a parenthesis
        * Include pip 0.6.2 and Distribute 0.6.10
        * Create the ``virtualenv`` script even when Setuptools isn't
        * Fix problem with ``virtualenv --relocate`` when ``bin/`` has
          subdirectories (e.g., ``bin/.svn/``); from Alan Franzoni.
        * If you set ``$VIRTUALENV_DISTRIBUTE`` then virtualenv will use
          Distribute by default (so you don't have to remember to use
        * Include pip 0.6.1
        * Fix pip installation on Windows
        * Fix use of stand-alone ```` (and boot scripts)
        * Exclude ~/.local (user site-packages) from environments when using
        * Include pip 0.6
        * Updated setuptools to 0.6c11
        * Added the --distribute option
        * Fixed packaging problem of support-files
        * Virtualenv now copies the actual embedded Python binary on
          Mac OS X to fix a hang on Snow Leopard (10.6).
        * Fail more gracefully on Windows when ``win32api`` is not installed.
        * Fix site-packages taking precedent over Jython's ``__classpath__``
          and also specially handle the new ``__pyclasspath__`` entry in
        * Now copies Jython's ``registry`` file to the virtualenv if it exists.
        * Better find libraries when compiling extensions on Windows.
        * Create ``Scripts\pythonw.exe`` on Windows.
        * Added support for the Debian/Ubuntu
          ``/usr/lib/pythonX.Y/dist-packages`` directory.
        * Set ``distutils.sysconfig.get_config_vars()['LIBDIR']`` (based on
          ``sys.real_prefix``) which is reported to help building on Windows.
        * Make ``deactivate`` work on ksh
        * Fixes for ``--python``: make it work with ``--relocatable`` and the
          symlink created to the exact Python version.
        * Use Windows newlines in ``activate.bat``, which has been reported to help
          when using non-ASCII directory names.
        * Fixed compatibility with Jython 2.5b1.
        * Added a function ``virtualenv.install_python`` for more fine-grained
          access to what ``virtualenv.create_environment`` does.
        * Fix `a problem <>`_
          with Windows and paths that contain spaces.
        * If ``/path/to/env/.pydistutils.cfg`` exists (or
          ``/path/to/env/pydistutils.cfg`` on Windows systems) then ignore
          ``~/.pydistutils.cfg`` and use that other file instead.
        * Fix ` a problem
          <>`_ picking up
          some ``.so`` libraries in ``/usr/local``.
        * Remove the ``[install] prefix = ...`` setting from the virtualenv
          ``distutils.cfg`` -- this has been causing problems for a lot of
          people, in rather obscure ways.
        * If you use a boot script it will attempt to import ``virtualenv``
          and find a pre-downloaded Setuptools egg using that.
        * Added platform-specific paths, like ``/usr/lib/pythonX.Y/plat-linux2``
        * Real Python 2.6 compatibility.  Backported the Python 2.6 updates to
          ````, including `user directories
          (this means older versions of Python will support user directories,
          whether intended or not).
        * Always set ``[install] prefix`` in ``distutils.cfg`` -- previously
          on some platforms where a system-wide ``distutils.cfg`` was present
          with a ``prefix`` setting, packages would be installed globally
          (usually in ``/usr/local/lib/pythonX.Y/site-packages``).
        * Sometimes Cygwin seems to leave ``.exe`` off ``sys.executable``; a
          workaround is added.
        * Fix ``--python`` option.
        * Fixed handling of Jython environments that use a
        * Update to Setuptools 0.6c9
        * Added an option ``virtualenv --relocatable EXISTING_ENV``, which
          will make an existing environment "relocatable" -- the paths will
          not be absolute in scripts, ``.egg-info`` and ``.pth`` files.  This
          may assist in building environments that can be moved and copied.
          You have to run this *after* any new packages installed.
        * Added ``bin/``, a file you can use like
          dict(__file__="path_to/"))`` -- this will activate
          the environment in place, similar to what `the mod_wsgi example
          does <>`_.
        * For Mac framework builds of Python, the site-packages directory
          ``/Library/Python/X.Y/site-packages`` is added to ``sys.path``, from
          Andrea Rech.
        * Some platform-specific modules in Macs are added to the path now
          (``plat-darwin/``, ``plat-mac/``, ``plat-mac/lib-scriptpackages``),
          from Andrea Rech.
        * Fixed a small Bashism in the ``bin/activate`` shell script.
        * Added ``__future__`` to the list of required modules, for Python
          2.3.  You'll still need to backport your own ``subprocess`` module.
        * Fixed the ``__classpath__`` entry in Jython's ``sys.path`` taking
          precedent over virtualenv's libs.
        * Added a ``--python`` option to select the Python interpreter.
        * Add ``warnings`` to the modules copied over, for Python 2.6 support.
        * Add ``sets`` to the module copied over for Python 2.3 (though Python
          2.3 still probably doesn't work).
        * Added support for Jython 2.5.
        * Added support for Python 2.6.
        * Fix a problem with missing ``DLLs/zlib.pyd`` on Windows.  Create
        * ``bin/python`` (or ``bin/python.exe``) even when you run virtualenv
          with an interpreter named, e.g., ``python2.4``
        * Fix MacPorts Python
        * Added --unzip-setuptools option
        * Update to Setuptools 0.6c8
        * If the current directory is not writable, run in ``/tmp``
        * Copy or symlink over the ``include`` directory so that packages will
          more consistently compile.
        * Fix build on systems that use ``/usr/lib64``, distinct from
          ``/usr/lib`` (specifically CentOS x64).
        * Fixed bug in ``--clear``.
        * Fixed typos in ``deactivate.bat``.
        * Preserve ``$PYTHONPATH`` when calling subprocesses.
        * Fix include dir copying on Windows (makes compiling possible).
        * Include the main ``lib-tk`` in the path.
        * Patch ``distutils.sysconfig``: ``get_python_inc`` and
          ``get_python_lib`` to point to the global locations.
        * Install ``distutils.cfg`` before Setuptools, so that system
          customizations of ``distutils.cfg`` won't effect the installation.
        * Add ``bin/pythonX.Y`` to the virtualenv (in addition to
        * Fixed an issue with Mac Framework Python builds, and absolute paths
          (from Ronald Oussoren).
        * Improve ability to create a virtualenv from inside a virtualenv.
        * Fix a little bug in ``bin/activate``.
        * Actually get ``distutils.cfg`` to work reliably.
        * Added ``lib-dynload`` and ``config`` to things that need to be
          copied over in an environment.
        * Copy over or symlink the ``include`` directory, so that you can
          build packages that need the C headers.
        * Include a ``distutils`` package, so you can locally update
          ``distutils.cfg`` (in ``lib/pythonX.Y/distutils/distutils.cfg``).
        * Better avoid downloading Setuptools, and hitting PyPI on environment
        * Fix a problem creating a ``lib64/`` directory.
        * Should work on MacOSX Framework builds (the default Python
          installations on Mac).  Thanks to Ronald Oussoren.
        * Windows installs would sometimes give errors about ``sys.prefix`` that
          were inaccurate.
        * Slightly prettier output.
        * Added support for Windows.
        * Give a better warning if you are on an unsupported platform (Mac
          Framework Pythons, and Windows).
        * Give error about running while inside a workingenv.
        * Give better error message about Python 2.3.
        Fixed packaging of the library.
        Initial release.  Everything is changed and new!
