I'm please to announce the new Web site for JPython, the 100% Pure
Java implementation of Python. Please come visit
and update your links. The old site <http://www.python.org/jpython/>
still exists but it will not be updated and will eventually go away.
My thanks to Cathy Rey of CNRI for her help in getting the new site
looking so good.
A few other notables:
- I'm starting a new bugs database using Jitterbug. The old bug
reports won't (yet?) be converted but you should use the new system
to report any future bugs. The URL for this is
- The next release of JPython will be covered by a new license, which
I believe is more "open". All existing releases of JPython are
still covered under the old license, but there will be a new release
soon. For more information, please see
We also have updated permission forms for contributions (which we're
for more information.
- I'd like to collect a list of JPython users, similar to the one
maintained for Python itself. If you're interested in being listed,
Enjoy, and stay tuned for announcements of the next release.

I would like to announce a new beta release of pyca, a set of scripts
and CGI-BIN programs for setting up and running a certificate authority
for further details. Unfortunately thereŽs no real documentation
available up to now and thereŽs still a lot to be done.

This message is for folks who are currently receiving the the Python
list traffic via python-list(a)cwi.nl or python-announce-list(a)cwi.nl, or
would like to receive comp.lang.python or comp.lang.python.announce
via email instead of Usenet.
We are finally moving the mailing lists from cwi.nl to python.org.
The lists at python.org will be managed by Mailman and will still be
gatewayed to the Usenet newsgroups. We are not going to move people's
subscriptions enmasse (yet). For the time being if you want to switch
your subscription you should:
1) send an unsubscribe request to python-list-request(a)cwi.nl
2) Visit http://www.python.org/mailman/listinfo/python-list
and fill out a subscription request
(same goes for python-announce-list, just substitute
`python-announce-list' for `python-list' above).
At some point when the majority of people have moved over, and we've
had the opportunity to stress the system with real traffic, we will
move the remaining subscribers over to python.org, but we'll announce
that before we do it.
One advantage of moving to python-list(a)python.org is that you can set
your Mailman subscription to deliver the messages in digests (MIME or
`plain'). This is a nice middle ground between receiving the messages
immediately as they are posted, and reading them via Usenet.
Feel free to begin sending messages to the list via
python-list(a)python.org. python-list(a)cwi.nl will become an alias for
this new address.
