ANNOUNCE: Mod_python 3.3.0b (Beta)

P: n/a

The Apache Software Foundation and The Apache HTTP Server Project are
pleased to announce the 3.3.0b (Beta) release of mod_python.

Version 3.3.0b of mod_python features several new functions and
attributes providing better access to apache internals, as well as
many bug fixes and various performance and security improvements. A
detailed description of the changes is available in Appendix A of the
mod_python manual, also available here

http://www.modpython.org/live/mod_py...om-3.2.10.html

Beta releases are NOT considered stable and usually contain bugs.

This release is intended to solicit widespread testing of the code. We
strongly recommend that you try out your existing applications and
experiment with new features in a non-production environment using
this version and report any problems you may encounter so that they
can be addressed before the final release.

Preferred method of reporting problems is the mod_python user list
mo********@modpython.org.

Mod_python 3.3.0b is available for download from:

http://httpd.apache.org/modules/python-download.cgi

For more information about mod_python visit http://www.modpython.org/

Regards,

The Apache mod_python team.

How long does it usually take for these things to make there way into
the Fedora (or other distro) repositories?

Given that this is a beta, I would hope that the distro people don't
get on to it quickly or at all. It was a right pain the last time a
beta of mod_python was released and RPMs got distributed, as it took us
a lot longer to get rid of the beta version out of the pipeline when
the non beta was actually released.

Thus, if you really want to try out this beta, compile it from source
code, otherwise wait for the official non beta release. If you don't
like compiling from source, then you possibly aren't the sort of person
who should be using this beta version in the first place, especially
when compilation on different platforms is always a part of what we
want tested in releasing a beta.
