Python 2.4.4 vs. 2.3.6

P: n/a
My top priority is stability of the interpreter. With that in mind
which version should I get: 2.4.4, 2.3.6
or something else.

I will be using gcc 2.3.2(x86), 3.3(arm) and 3.4.3(arm) to cross
compile it depending on the (embedded) platform.

Thank you.

I'd recommend 2.4.4 over 2.3.6. 2.4 hasn't got much in the way of
major likely-to-cause-bugs changes over 2.3, and it's had a heck of a
lot more time to have bugs fixed. Once 2.4(.0) came out, work on the
2.3 maintenance series effectively stopped in favour of working on the
2.4 series. There's been a lot of bugs fixed since then that weren't
applied back to 2.3. See the 2.4.4 release notes, available at the
2.4.4 webpage, for more.
