Hi Obspy friends,

I guess this is a questions mainly to the developers.

With my last install of ObsPy 0.8.3, I realised that the setup.py  
script is not working anymore with my python 2.7.5 (MacPorts). I am  
pretty sure, it was okay some time ago as I was able to install obspy.  
However, new builds from scratch fail.

Well, in master the setup.py was replaces by a numpy.distutils based  
version. So cited version became obsolete and I guess there is no  
point in compiling an issue against it. Maybe I am work?

Is there any new release to be expected soon?

So what to do in the meanwhile?
Is there some strategy to do back porting in such a case?



Details on the problem:

This line from setup.py would fail:
from distutils.unixccompiler import UnixCCompiler,  


Python 2.7.5 (default, May 20 2013, 15:34:33)
