- add the license to package documentation
* Wed Nov 12 2014
- Update to version 3.1.16
  + Worker: 3.1.15 broke -Ofair behavior (Issue #2286).
  + Canvas: celery.signature now properly forwards app argument in all cases.
  + Task: .retry() did not raise the exception correctly when called without a current exception.
  + Worker: The enable_events remote control command disabled worker-related events by mistake (Issue #2272).
  + Django: Adds support for Django 1.7 class names in INSTALLED_APPS when using app.autodiscover_tasks() (Issue #2248).
  + Redis/Cache Backends: Chords will now run at most once if one or more tasks in the chord are executed multiple times for some reason.
* Sun Dec 01 2013
- Update to version 3.1.1
  + Now depends Kombu 3.0.6
  + Now depends on billiard
  + App: ``config_from_object`` is now lazy
  + App: ``autodiscover_tasks`` is now lazy
    Django users should now wrap access to the settings object in
    a lambda:
    app.autodiscover_tasks(lambda: settings.INSTALLED_APPS)
    this ensures that the settings object is not prepared
  + Fixed regression for ``--app`` argument experienced by
    some users
  + Worker: Now respects the ``--uid`` and ``--gid`` arguments
    even if ``--detach`` is not enabled
  + Beat: Now respects the ``--uid`` and ``--gid`` arguments
    even if ``--detach`` is not enabled
  + Python 3: Fixed unorderable error occuring with the worker ``-B``
    argument enabled
  + ``celery.VERSION`` is now a named tuple
  + ``maybe_signature(list)`` is now applied recursively
  + ``celery shell`` command: Fixed ``IPython.frontend`` deprecation warning
  + The default app no longer includes the builtin fixups
    This fixes a bug where ``celery multi`` would attempt
    to load the Django settings module before entering
    the target working directory
  + The Django daemonization tutorial was changed
    Users no longer have to explicitly export ``DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE``
    in :file:`/etc/default/celeryd` when the new project layout is used
  + Redis result backend: expiry value can now be 0
  + Censoring settings now accounts for non-string keys
  + App: New ``autofinalize`` option
    Apps are automatically finalized when the task registry is accessed.
    You can now disable this behavior so that an exception is raised
  + The worker did not send monitoring events during shutdown
  + Worker: Mingle and gossip is now automatically disabled when
    used with an unsupported transport
  + ``celery`` command: Preload options now supports
    the rare ``--opt value`` format
  + ``celery`` command: Accidentally removed options
    appearing before the subcommand, these are now moved to the end
  + Worker now properly responds to ``inspect stats`` commands
    even if received before startup is complete
  + :signal:`task_postrun` is now sent within a finally block, to make
    sure the signal is always sent
  + Beat: Fixed syntax error in string formatting
  + Fixed typos in the documentation
  + Nested chains now works properly when constructed using the
    ``chain`` type instead of the ``|`` operator
* Thu Oct 24 2013
- Require python-setuptools instead of distribute (upstreams merged)
* Wed Sep 25 2013
- Update to version 3.0.23
  + Now depends on :ref:`Kombu 2.5.14 <kombu:version-2.5.14>`.
  + ``send_task`` did not honor ``link`` and ``link_error`` arguments.
    This had the side effect of chains not calling unregistered tasks,
    silently discarding them.
  + :mod:`celery.state`: Optimized precedence lookup.
  + Posix: Daemonization did not redirect ``sys.stdin`` to ``/dev/null``.
  + Canvas: group bug caused fallback to default app when ``.apply_async`` used
    (Issue #1516)
  + Canvas: generator arguments was not always pickleable
- Use source url as source
* Tue Apr 30 2013
- Update to 3.0.19:
  - Now depends on billiard
  - A Python 3 related fix managed to disable the deadlock fix
    announced in 3.0.18.
    Tests have been added to make sure this does not happen again.
  - Task retry policy: Default max_retries is now 3.
    This ensures clients will not be hanging while the broker is down.
    You can set a longer retry for the worker by
    using the celeryd_after_setup signal:
    from celery.signals import celeryd_after_setup
    def configure_worker(instance, conf, **kwargs):
    'max_retries': 100,
    'interval_start': 0,
    'interval_max': 1,
    'interval_step': 0.2,
  - Worker: Will now properly display message body in error messages
    even if the body is a buffer instance.
  - 3.0.18 broke the MongoDB result backend (Issue #1303).
