[RELEASE] Python 2.7.2 release candidate 1

Discussion in 'Python' started by Benjamin Peterson, May 29, 2011.

  1. On behalf of the Python development team, I'm happy to announce the immediate
    availability of Python 2.7.2 release candidate 1.

    2.7.2 is the second in bugfix release for the Python 2.7 series. 2.7 is the last
    major verison of the 2.x line and will be receiving bug fixes while new feature
    development focuses on 3.x.

    2.7 includes many features that were first released in Python 3.1. The faster io
    module, the new nested with statement syntax, improved float repr, set literals,
    dictionary views, and the memoryview object have been backported from 3.1. Other
    features include an ordered dictionary implementation, unittests improvements, a
    new sysconfig module, auto-numbering of fields in the str/unicode format method,
    and support for ttk Tile in Tkinter. For a more extensive list of changes in
    2.7, see http://doc.python.org/dev/whatsnew/2.7.html or Misc/NEWS in the Python
    distribution.

    Enjoy!
