[ANN] Python 2.4.6 and 2.5.3 (final)

Discussion in 'Python' started by Martin v. Löwis, Dec 19, 2008.

  1. On behalf of the Python development team and the Python community, I'm
    happy to announce the release of Python 2.4.6 and 2.5.3 (final).

    2.5.3 is the last bug fix release of Python 2.5. Future 2.5.x releases
    will only include security fixes. According to the release notes, about
    80 bugs and patches have been addressed since Python 2.5.2, many of
    them improving the stability of the interpreter, and improving its
    portability.

    Since the release candidate, the only change was an update to the
    Macintosh packaging procedure.

    2.4.6 includes only a small number of security fixes. Python 2.6 is
    the latest version of Python, we're making this release for people who
    are still running Python 2.4.

    See the release notes at the website (also available as Misc/NEWS in
    the source distribution) for details of bugs fixed; most of them prevent
    interpreter crashes (and now cause proper Python exceptions in cases
    where the interpreter may have crashed before).

    For more information on Python 2.4.6 and 2.5.3, including download
    links for various platforms, release notes, and known issues, please
    see:

    Enjoy this release,
    Martin
