[ANN] Python 2.4.6 and 2.5.3, release candidate 1

Discussion in 'Python' started by Martin v. Löwis, Dec 13, 2008.

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

    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, over
    100 bugs and patches have been addressed since Python 2.5.1, many of
    them improving the stability of the interpreter, and improving its
    portability.

    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).

    Assuming no major problems crop up, a final release of Python 2.4.6
    and 2.5.3 will follow in about a week's time.

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

    Enjoy this release,
    Martin
