    Due to a goof in the packaging scripts, the Windows installer
    that was released on Friday for 2.4a3 broke file associations
    for .py files. There's a fixed installer (python-2.4a3.2.msi)
    available from the Python 2.4 web page.

    There's also a patch for the breakage for random.py on systems
    that don't have support for the new os.urandom() call. This is
    also available from the Python 2.4 web page.

    ~ http://www.python.org/2.4/

    We apologise to those affected by these bugs, and I'd like to
    thank the folks who downloaded the release and let us know about
    the problems so promptly.
