I'm happy to announce that ActivePython 188.8.131.52 is now available for free download from: http://www.ActiveState.com/Products/ActivePython/
This release is a maintenance/update release for existing platforms and adds support for three new ones: Mac OS X/x86, Windows/x64 and Linux/x86_64. See below for a full list of supported platforms.
Changes in this release include:
This is the first release of ActivePython for Mac OS X/Intel. It should be considered an early release. This build is not a universal build and there are a number of known issues: http://aspn.activestate.com/ASPN/docs/ActivePython/2.4/relnotes.html#KI_maco...
I suspect that ultimately a universal Python build is the right answer, but details and issues around that should be discussed on the Python Mac mailing list: firstname.lastname@example.org
