RELEASED Python 2.4.4, release candidate 1

On behalf of the Python development team and the Python community,
I'm happy to announce the release of Python 2.4.4 (release candidate 1).

Python 2.4.4 is a bug-fix release. While Python 2.5 is the latest
version of Python, we're making this release for people who are
still running Python 2.4.

See the release notes at the website (also available as Misc/NEWS in
the source distribution) for details of the more than 80 bugs squished
in this release, including a number found by the Coverity and Klocwork
static analysis tools. We'd like to offer our thanks to both these
companies for making this available for open source projects.

* Python 2.4.4 contains a fix for PSF-2006-001, a buffer overrun *
* in repr() of unicode strings in wide unicode (UCS-4) builds. *
* See http://www.python.org/news/security/PSF-2006-001/ for more. *

Assuming no major problems crop up, a final release of Python 2.4.4 will
follow in about a week's time. This will be the last planned release in
the Python 2.4 series - future maintenance releases will be in the 2.5
line.

For more information on Python 2.4.4, including download links for
various platforms, release notes, and known issues, please see:

http://www.python.org/2.4.4/

Highlights of this new release include:

- Bug fixes. According to the release notes, at least 80 have been
fixed.
- A fix for PSF-2006-001, a bug in repr() for unicode strings
on UCS-4 (wide unicode) builds.

Highlights of the previous major Python release (2.4) are available
from the Python 2.4 page, at

http://www.python.org/2.4/highlights.html

Enjoy this release,
Anthony

Python 2.3c2 is the second and last release candidate for Python 2.3. There have been a bunch of bug fixes and memory leak plugs since the first release candidate, but no new features. As described in PEP 283, Python 2.3 final will be released before the end of July 2003. We are planning for Tuesday 29-Jul-2003 if everything looks good. We highly encourage everyone to rigorously test this release candidate. Only critical bug fixes will...

On behalf of the Python development team and the Python community, I'm happy to announce the first release candidate of Python 2.4. Python 2.4c1 is a release candidate - we'd greatly appreciate it if you could download it, kick the tires and let us know of any problems you find, but it is probably not suitable for production usage. At this point, we're particularly interested in build bugs. If you could grab the source archive, build it...

On behalf of the Python development team and the Python community, I'm happy to announce the first RELEASE CANDIDATE of Python 2.5. This is not yet the final release - it is not suitable for production use. It is being released to solicit feedback and hopefully expose bugs, as well as allowing you to determine how changes in 2.5 might impact you. As a release candidate, this is one of your last chances to test the new code in 2.5...

On behalf of the Python development team and the Python community, I'm happy to announce the second RELEASE CANDIDATE of Python 2.5. After the first release candidate a number of new bugfixes have been applied to the Python 2.5 code. In the interests of making 2.5 the best release possible, we've decided to put out a second (and hopefully last) release candidate. We plan for a 2.5 final in a week's time.

On behalf of the Python development team and the Python community, I'm announcing the release of Python 2.3.6 (release candidate 1). Python 2.3.6 is a security bug-fix release. While Python 2.5 is the latest version of Python, we're making this release for people who are still running Python 2.3. Unlike the recently released 2.4.4, this release only contains a small handful of security-related bugfixes. See the website for more.

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>". The problem is that using the GNU compilers, it seems that the internal comparison operator "<=>" tries to promote arguments from unsigned to signed. This is as boiled down as I can make it. Here is my compilation command: g++-12 -std=c++20 -Wnarrowing bit_field.cpp Here is the code in...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers.
