[RELEASED] Python 2.7 alpha 1

Discussion in 'Python' started by Benjamin Peterson, Dec 5, 2009.

  1. On behalf of the Python development team, I'm pleased to announce the first
    alpha release of Python 2.7.

    Python 2.7 is scheduled to be the last major version in the 2.x series. It
    includes many features that were first released in Python 3.1. The faster io
    module, the new nested with statement syntax, improved float repr, and the
    memoryview object have been backported from 3.1. Other features include an
    ordered dictionary implementation, unittests improvements, and support for ttk
    Tile in Tkinter. For a more extensive list of changes in 2.7, see
    http://doc.python.org/dev/doc/whatsnew/2.7.html or Misc/NEWS in the Python
    distribution. Please note that this is a development release, intended as a
    preview of new features for the community, and is thus not suitable for
    production use.

    To download Python 2.7 visit:

    http://www.python.org/download/releases/2.7/

    The 2.7 documentation can be found at:

    http://docs.python.org/2.7

    Please consider trying Python 2.7 with your code and reporting any bugs you may
    notice to:

    Have fun!
