 * #21: AccessDenied exception created for raising access denied errors
        from OSError or WindowsError on individual platforms.
 * #26: psutil.process_iter() function to iterate over processes as
        Process objects with a generator.
 * #?:  Process objects can now also be compared with == operator for equality
        (PID, name, command line are compared).

BUGFIXES

 * #16: [Windows] Special case for "System Idle Process" (PID 0) which
        otherwise would return an "invalid parameter" exception.
 * #17: get_process_list() ignores NoSuchProcess and AccessDenied
        exceptions during building of the list.
 * #22: [Windows] Process(0).kill() was failing with an unset exception.
 * #23: Special case for pid_exists(0)
 * #24: [Windows] Process(0).kill() now raises AccessDenied exception instead of
        WindowsError.
 * #30: psutil.get_pid_list() was returning two instances of PID 0 on OS
        X and FreeBSD platforms.
