    Hi all,
    I have released a new version of the win32all extensions. I have
    also changed significantly the way I release them.

    The significant changes to the build/release process are:
    * These extensions are now built with distutils, and also distributed
    using the distutils builtin binary installer - WISE is no longer used.
    A huge thank-you to Thomas Heller for creating the initial distutils
    script and for guiding me along the way.

    * There is now a single build number for all supported Python versions.
    For example, the new build 200 is available for both Python 2.2 and
    Python 2.3 (whereas previously one build number applied only to a single
    Python version, even when the builds were otherwise identical)

    * To mark this change in the way build numbers are managed, but to
    continue to re-inforce this is a build number rather than a "version
    number", the build number has jumped to 200.

    * The installation name now reflects the SourceForge project name
    (pywin32), and I will slowly start refering to these extensions as
    either "the pywin32" or "the Python for Windows" extensions - the name
    'win32all' will slowly drop off (PendingDeprecationWarning anyone? <wink>)

    * Thanks to distutils, a source distribution is also released.

    The change-log and downloads are available via the project's SourceForge
    page:
    https://sourceforge.net/projects/pywin32

    The direct link to the download page for this project is:
    https://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=78018

    All comments appreciated!

    Regards,

    Mark.

    this seems like a milestone in Pywin32's maturity. Congratulations.

    One problem. I install Python with the start menu entries in
    Programs\Programming\Python 2.3, rather than the default of
    Programs\Python 2.3. The old pywin32 releases found this location
    (from the regstry, I guess) and put their start menu entries in there.

    The new one not only uses the default, Programs\Python 2.3,
    regardless, but it also fails to handle the lack of that directory
    correctly, raising an error rather than creating it if it doesn't
    exist.

    Paul.

    That sounds great. For those of us who have the ActiveState Python
    release, which had win32all bundled with it, is there any way we can
    upgrade that win32all, or do we need to uninstall ActiveState, then
    install vanilla Python and then win32all?

    Thanks

    I just double-clicked it in this week-end over my ActiveState installation!
    Works great (up to now ;))

    BTW - Thanks for the extended caracter set, Mark (Héhé...)!

    Marvelous!

    Since more than a year there used to be a bug in the editor that
    wouldn't let you you german "Umlaute" for example. Or my name, which
    actually is "Bleß". I once asked about it and the answer was that the
    error was in the code of the Scintilla project. Whatever happened -
    the error seems to be gone. Wonderful!

    It has been brought to my attention that build 200 fails to include
    'pythonservice.exe', which means Python implemented services will fail
    to work. I have added a new pythonservice.zip to the sourceforge
    release page, which includes pythonservice.exe for python 2.2 and 2.3.
    If you use Python services, please grab this file, and view the
    README.txt for instructions.

    Future builds will have this fixed.

    Regards,

    MArk.

    Right -- in other words, since pigs can now fly, can we now have chicken
    with teeth?
