PyPy is a fast, compliant alternative implementation of the Python language
(2.7). It has several advantages and distinct features:
* Speed: thanks to its Just-in-Time compiler (on x86), Python programs often
run faster on PyPy.
* Memory usage: large, memory-hungry Python programs might end up taking less
space than they do in CPython.
* Compatibility: PyPy is highly compatible with existing Python code.
It supports ctypes and can run popular Python libraries like twisted and
* Stackless: PyPy supports stackless mode on most platforms, providing
micro-threads for massive concurrency.
This package contains the PyPy interpreter.

pypy (5.0.1+dfsg-4) unstable; urgency=medium
* Disable building with pypy on ppc64, again. It has a JIT, but pypy itself
is just too buggy on big-endian, to manage a translation.
* hg-updates: fix wait() on big endian (which should resolve the above
* kfreebsd-tests: Skip PTY tests that hang forever on kFreeBSD.
2016-03-25 - Stefano Rivera <>
pypy (5.0.1+dfsg-3) unstable; urgency=medium
* Re-enable pypy builds on ppc64.
* ARM JIT backend: Only execute NEON instructions on CPUs with NEON support.
* hg-updates: Apply patches staged in upstream's release branch.
2016-03-22 - Stefano Rivera <>
pypy (5.0.1+dfsg-2) unstable; urgency=medium
* Drop libunwind build-dep, not used any more, in PyPy 5.0.
* Port the recent vmprof changes to kFreeBSD.
* Make pypy-lib an architecture-dependant package, so that we remain
installable on buildds, after Architecture: all build has been installed.
* Temporarily build with python2.7 on ppc64, to re-bootstrap.
2016-03-20 - Stefano Rivera <>
pypy (5.0.1+dfsg-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream patch release.
* Recognise armv8l architecture, so we can build in an armhf chroot on
* Build with pypy on architectures with a JITted PyPy. This is now necessary
on armhf, as we otherwise can't build a jitted pypy in a 3GB address
space (32bit kernel userspace).
2016-03-13 - Stefano Rivera <>
pypy (5.0+dfsg-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream release.
* Refresh patches.
* Drop soabi patch, superseded upstream.
* Bump copyright years.
* Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.7, no changes needed.
* Switch both Vcs fields to the same https URL.
* Patch: sandbox-unlink allow the sandbox REPL to start, by supporting
unlink() (and rejecting it).
2015-11-20 - Stefano Rivera <>
pypy (4.0.1+dfsg-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream patch release.
* Refresh patches, drop hg-updates.
* Update copyright.
* Enable continuation on PPC64 and MIPS64.
* Switch VCS-Browser to cgit, on https.
2015-11-02 - Stefano Rivera <>
pypy (4.0.0+dfsg-2) unstable; urgency=medium
* Set the magic tag (.pyc filename) to the soabi, for simplicity. We haven't
had any changes to bytecode in a while. Part of #803689.
* Expose SOABI in sysconfig for dh_pypy, so it can generate dependencies on
* Provide pypy-abi-XX.
* Force a re-byte-compile, if 4.0.0+dfsg-1 was installed.
* Apply upstream post-release bug-fixes.
2015-10-29 - Stefano Rivera <>
pypy (4.0.0+dfsg-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream release. (2.6.x skips to 4.0.x to avoid confusion with
current cPython releases).
- Now supports JIT on 64bit PPC (both endians)
* Refresh patches.
* valgrind is now available on mips64el.
2015-09-21 - Stefano Rivera <>
pypy (2.6.1+dfsg-2) unstable; urgency=medium
* pypy-dev: Move headers back to their include dir. (Closes: #799485)
2015-09-17 - Stefano Rivera <>
pypy (2.6.1+dfsg-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream release. (Closes: #786738)
* Refresh patches.
* Drop patch, superseded upstream: vmprof-amd64.
* Update copyright.
* Generate Provides for pypy-cffi, like python-cffi 1.1.2 does.
* Properly support the binary-indep target.
* Drop grammar pickles from lib2to3, not needed.
* Multiarch ctypes_config_cache.
* Build-Depend on dh-python, for dh_python2.
