================ PyPy3 2.1 beta 1 ================
We're pleased to announce the first beta of the upcoming 2.1 release of PyPy3. This is the first release of PyPy which targets Python 3 (3.2.3) compatibility.
We would like to thank all of the people who donated_ to the `py3k proposal`_ for supporting the work that went into this and future releases.
You can download the PyPy3 2.1 beta 1 release here:
* The first release of PyPy3: support for Python 3, targetting CPython 3.2.3!
- There are some `known issues`_ including performance regressions (issues `#1540`_ & `#1541`_) slated to be resolved before the final release.
What is PyPy? ==============
PyPy is a very compliant Python interpreter, almost a drop-in replacement for CPython 2.7.3 or 3.2.3. It's fast due to its integrated tracing JIT compiler.
This release supports x86 machines running Linux 32/64, Mac OS X 64 or Windows 32. Also this release supports ARM machines running Linux 32bit - anything with ``ARMv6`` (like the Raspberry Pi) or ``ARMv7`` (like Beagleboard, Chromebook, Cubieboard, etc.) that supports ``VFPv3`` should work.
Cheers, the PyPy team
