I'm more than two weeks late but I'm very glad to announce the release of py3status v2.7 which features a lot of interesting stuff !
For this release I want to salute the significant work and help of Daniel Foerster (@pydsigner), who discovered and fixed a bug in the event detection loop.
The result is a greatly improved click event detection and bar update speed with a largely reduced CPU consumption and less code !
