Re: RELEASED Python 2.6 final

Also, the docs currently seem broken.
Example: http://docs.python.org/library/weakr...module-weakref ,
which is linked to from the new module index page, gives a 404 error.

Cheers,
Chris Rebert

On behalf of the Python development team and the Python community, I am
happy to announce the release of Python 2.6 final. This is the
production-ready version of the latest in the Python 2 series.

There are many new features and modules, improvements, bug fixes, and other
changes in Python 2.6. Please see the "What's new" page for details

http://docs.python.org/dev/whatsnew/2.6.html

as well as PEP 361

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

While Python 2.6 is backward compatible with earlier versions of Python, 2.6
has many tools and features that will help you migrate to Python 3.
Wherever possible, Python 3.0 features have been added without affecting
existing code. In other cases, the new features can be enabled through the
use of __future__ imports and command line switches.

Python 3.0 is currently in release candidate and will be available later
this year. Both Python 2 and Python 3 will be supported for the foreseeable
future.

Source tarballs, Windows installers, and Mac disk images can be downloaded
from the Python 2.6 page:

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

(Please note that due to quirks in the earth's time zones, the Windows
installers will be available shortly.)

Bugs can be reported in the Python bug tracker:

http://bugs.python.org

Enjoy,
- -Barry
