On Sunday afternoon I released a new version of PyEphem, which is available from the Python Package Index as version 3.7.2.2! I want to thank the users who spurred its development — in particular, John Duchek of the Astronomical Society of Eastern Missouri encouraged me both to create the new moon-phase functions, and, as I announced several weeks ago, to finally make PyEphem available in binary form for Windows. Thanks, John!

PyEphem now also includes a small database of world cities, so that people living near one can simply call ephem.city('Boston') to get their longitude, latitude, and elevation, rather than having to look up the numbers themselves.
