RELEASED Python 2.6rc1

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

On behalf of the Python development team and the Python community, I
am happy to announce the first release candidate for Python 2.6.

This is a release candidate, so while it is not suitable for
production environments, we strongly encourage you to download the
release and test it on your software. We expect only critical bugs to
be fixed between now and the final 2.6 release, still scheduled for
October 1st, 2008. There is one more release candidate planned for
September 17th.

You might notice that unlike earlier releases, we are /not/ releasing
Python 3.0rc1 at this time. It was decided that 3.0 still needs time
to resolve open issues and that we would not hold up the 2.6 release
for this. We feel that Python 2.6 is nearly ready for its final
release.

If you find things broken or incorrect, please submit bug reports at

http://bugs.python.org

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

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

(Note that the Windows installers will be uploaded shortly.)

See PEP 361 for release schedule details:

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

Enjoy,
- -Barry

About this Vista note on that page:

<quote>
Vista Note
Administrators installing Python for all users on Windows Vista
either
need to be logged in as Administrator, or use the runas command, as
in:

runas /user:Administrator "msiexec /i <path>\<file>.msi"
</quote>

I couldn't get Idle to run until Python was installed this way, so it
appears to be required even for a single user.

And I know that Windows operation is not Python's responsibility,
but couldn't you point out casually that, by default, the
Administrator
account is disabled in Vista. And the above won't work until you find
out how to enable the Administrator (an easy Google search).
