[TIP] testfixtures 6.0.2 released - important bug fix!

Hi All,

I'm afraid I've found quite a serious regression in the 6.x series of 
testfixtures releases:

Objects that had neither __dict__ nor __slots__ would always be 
considered equal by compare().
I hit this comparing datetimes, but this would also affect types 
provides by extensions in other languages such as C or C++.
This did not affect built-in types such as dict, set, tuple and list as 
they have specific comparers provided that were not affects.

I've released 6.0.2 to fix this and would urge anyone using 6.0.0 or 
6.0.1 to upgrade as soon as possible.

The package is on PyPI and a full list of all the links to docs, issue 
trackers and the like can be found here:
