  1. I'm happy to announce that ActivePython 3.1.0.1 is now available for
    download from:

    http://www.activestate.com/activepython/python3/

    This is a major release that updates ActivePython3 to core Python 3.1.


    What is ActivePython?
    ---------------------

    ActivePython is ActiveState's binary distribution of Python. Builds
    for Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, HP-UX and AIX are made freely available.

    ActivePython includes the Python core and the many core extensions:
    zlib and bzip2 for data compression, the Berkeley DB (bsddb) and
    SQLite (sqlite3) database libraries, OpenSSL bindings for HTTPS
    support, the Tix GUI widgets for Tkinter, ElementTree for XML
    processing, ctypes (on supported platforms) for low-level library
    access, and others. The Windows distribution ships with PyWin32 -- a
    suite of Windows tools developed by Mark Hammond, including bindings
    to the Win32 API and Windows COM. See this page for full details:

    http://docs.activestate.com/activepython/3.1/whatsincluded.html

    As well, ActivePython ships with a wealth of documentation for both
    new and experienced Python programmers. In addition to the core Python
    docs, ActivePython includes the "What's New in Python" series, "Dive
    into Python", the Python FAQs & HOWTOs, and the Python Enhancement
    Proposals (PEPs).

    An online version of the docs can be found here:
