RELEASED Python 2.4.4, Final.

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

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. This is the final planned release from
the Python 2.4 series. Future maintenance releases will be in the
2.5 series, beginning with 2.5.1.

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 firms 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. *

There's only been one small change since the release candidate -
a fix to "configure" to repair cross-compiling of Python under
Unix.

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

Highlights of this new release include:

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