    Pyrex 0.9.7 is now available:

    http://www.cosc.canterbury.ac.nz/greg.ewing/python/Pyrex/

    Highlights of this version:

    * I have streamlined the integer for-loop syntax. Instead
    of the loop variable redundantly appearing in two places,
    it's now just

    for x < i < y:
    ...

    * If you declare a variable as a list or dict, then calls
    to some of its methods will be compiled into type-specific
    Python API calls instead of generic ones.

    * Most built-in constants are referenced directly instead of
    via dict lookup.

    * There are two new builtin functions, typecheck() and
    issubtype(), for checking the types of arguments more safely
    (since isinstance and issubclass can be fooled).

    What is Pyrex?
    --------------

    Pyrex is a language for writing Python extension modules.
    It lets you freely mix operations on Python and C data, with
    all Python reference counting and error checking handled
    automatically.
