RELEASED Python 2.6a2 and 3.0a4

P: n/a
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

On behalf of the Python development team and the Python community, I'm
happy to announce the second alpha release of Python 2.6, and the
fourth alpha release of Python 3.0.

Please note that these are alpha releases, and as such are not
suitable for production environments. We continue to strive for a
high degree of quality, but there are still some known problems and
the feature sets have not been finalized. These alphas are being
released to solicit feedback and hopefully discover bugs, as well as
allowing you to determine how changes in 2.6 and 3.0 might impact
you. If you find things broken or incorrect, please submit a bug
report at

http://bugs.python.org

For more information and downloadable distributions, see the Python
2.6 web
site:

http://www.python.org/download/releases/2.6/

and the Python 3.0 web site:

http://www.python.org/download/releases/3.0/

We are planning one more alpha release of each version, followed by
two beta releases, with the final releases planned for August 2008.
See PEP 361 for release details:

http://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0361/

Enjoy,
- -Barry

The Windows x86 MSI installer is missing for both 2.6 and 3.0.

And likely will continue to do so for some time.

Fine. Is there also a reason?

==========================

On PyDev, Martin gave just (but only) a bit more detail, to the effect that
he has run into problems with the new Microsoft compiler being used for
2.6/3.0 that apparently did not crop up with the previous alpha releases a
month ago. I think we should be patient and not bug him for more.

Sure! I don't have the time to spell it out, though, please
look at the python-dev archives. If you want to help, please
contact me in private.

Someone's got strange definitions of "missing"!

For each there's a link on the the ptyhon.org website, and a caveat
about non-Administrator installation ...

If it's missing, then what do I expect to find in the 11.7Mb 2.6a2 msi
that is downloading as I type?

Rather a flexible definition of "some time"; this turned out to be
roughly 40 hours.

At the time I replied they were both missing (in fact that's why I
replied :-)).

And at the time I replied, at least one was available but the most
recent information in this newsgroup was that they were unavailable
and would be so for some fuzzily-denominated duration which seemed
seriously long ... perhaps my two different and not totally reliable
news-reading facilities skipped a posting :-)
