PySCTP adds Python support for the new SCTP transport protocol. It aims to be portable to any platform that implements kernel-level SCTP, e.g. Linux, Solaris, AIX and FreeBSD. The final objective is to be included in standard Python.

The software is in alpha stage, at best. It has just passed its own auto-tests, but was not tried in "real-world" or heavier lab usage. The 0.1 version has been published mostly to have its interface peer-reviewed.

It has been tested only in Linux, against Linux Kernel SCTP version 1.0.1, (kernel versions 2.6.10 and 2.6.11). As soon as I get access to other operating systems, or feedback from other users, pysctp will be portable.

What's New in This Release:
Almost all functions of the Draft 10 SCTP API specification have been implemented.
Some code cleanups and small bugfixes were made along with some API changes, mostly in constant names.
