SIP v5.1.0 Released

6 January 2020

SIP v5.1.0 has been released. This is a significant feature release.

  • Added the minimum-glibc-version project option to specify the minimum GLIBC version required by the project. This is used to determine the correct platform tag to use for Linux wheels.
  • Added the build-tag project option to specify the build tag to be used in the name of a wheel. sip-wheel has a corresponding --build-tag command line option.
  • The values of list options in pyproject.toml files can now contain environment markers as defined in PEP 508.
  • Added Project.project_path() to the API.
