I started working on the update. As we don't use pip, we will have to package many Python modules.

But I found two Python modules with really strong restrictions on required versions: flask and marshmallow. In Kali we already have too high versions for faraday.
I didn't find exactly why there are these restrictions, just found this commit:

We will try to update faraday to use Flask 1.0. We are using Marshmallow 2.15.3 since version 3 is a beta version.

Let us know if you have problems with our filteralchemy version on git+, since the original library is not maintained anymore and we had to create a fork of it.

Should we check library versions on kali dev build?

Thanks a lot!

As we don't use pip but packaged python modules in Kali (mostly imported from Debian Testing), we can't manage when there are restrictions on versions like "==" or "<" or "<=". The packaged python modules are common to all the applications using them in Kali/Debian.
But if a minimal version is required, usually we can update the package.

I haven't look at yet. I'll let you know if I find a problem.

We will update all requirements to always use >=.
Currently we manage to update our server to Flask 1.0.
I will keep you updated when the fixes are published on github.
Let me know if you find any other issue.
