Stackless Python for 2.4.3

Hi,

Stackless Python is now available for the recent release of Python
2.4.3 (final).

You can either obtain the source code from the SVN repository or
download the precompiled windows binaries.

SVN: http://codespeak.net/svn/stackless/Python-2.4.3/dev
Download: http://www.stackless.com/download

If anyone plans to download and compile the source, there are
however some minor things that need to be taken into account which you
may be able to help me with, if you have the time.

1. I need a generated 'configure' file. I believe the 'configure.in'
fine should be fine, but if someone could run autoconf and send me
the result so I can check it in, it would be appreciated.

It would be best if anyone planning to do this checked the
Stackless mailing list to see if there was any mention of
someone else already having taken care of it.

2. Having the Python tests run, and the Stackless unittests run by
various people on different platforms would give a better
indication of the state of the port.

The following instructions are of course Win32 specific, but they
should be translate easily.

a) Retrieve the 2.4.3 source code from SVN at:
http://codespeak.net/svn/stackless/Python-2.4.3/dev

b) Compile it.

c) Open a console in the 'Stackless\unittests' directory.
Type '..\..\PCBuild\python.exe run_all.py'.

The expected result is that one pickling test will fail, this is
ok and it is the same known bug that we had for 2.4.2, which
should be easy enough to fix if someone wants to step forward
and put in the time and effort.

d) Open a console in the top level of the source code.
Type 'PCBuild\python.exe Lib\test\regrtest.py'

The expected result is that there will be a lot of skipped
tests, and possibly some failures depending on your platform.

I had these fail:
- test_email
- test_winsound

Neither of the errors were necessarily Stackless related, but
it is possible they are. But if you see any for your build that
are unexpected, please mention them.

Thanks,
Richard Tew.

Does anyone happen to know if Stackless Python is compatible with
existing third party extension modules (like e.g. Tkinter and wxPython)
?

I'm afraid my internet connection here is 'restricted' or I would
google first...

It's definatelly compatible with wxPython. If memory serves right, there
were some issues with Tkinter. It would be best to ask on stackless
mailinglist for details (I'm not sure, if wxPython worked out of the box
or if there was some trick involved)

I would just like to clarify, the windows specific paths do not
imply that Stackless compiles only on Windows, or that the
tests being run on Windows is all I am interested in.

Stackless compiles on a range of non-Windows platforms, including
x86 linux, mac os and others. And knowing the port works on them
all and is therefore more or less complete except for known issues
is what I am interesting in learning. Or what has to be fixed.

Thanks,
Richard.
