    Hello everyone.

    The source tarballs and Windows installers for Python 2.6.4rc1 are now
    available:

    http://www.python.org/download/releases/2.6.4/

    Please download them, install them, and try to use them with your
    projects and environments. Let us know if you encounter any problems
    with them. Hopefully we can avoid the situation with 2.6.3 having
    such critical bugs.

    2.6.4 final is planned for 18-October.

    Cheers,
    -Barry

    So I take it builds based on 2.6.3 should be avoided?

    2.6.3 breaks setuptools:

    http://bugs.python.org/issue7064

    I might upgrade to 2.6.3 just for that benefit alone.

    Well, I knew some people disliked setuptools, but I didn't realize the
    antipathy was so high!
