I'm happy to announce the release of Python 2.2.3 (final). This is a bug fix release for the stable Python 2.2 code line. It contains more than 40 bug fixes and memory leak patches since Python 2.2.2, and all Python 2.2 users are encouraged to upgrade.
The new release is available here:
For full details, see the release notes at
There are a small number of minor incompatibilities with Python 2.2.2; for details see:
Perhaps the most important is that the Bastion.py and rexec.py modules have been disabled, since we do not deem them to be safe.
As usual, a Windows installer and a Unix/Linux source tarball are made available. The documentation has been updated as well, and is available both on-line and in many different formats. At the moment, no Mac version or Linux RPMs are available, although I expect them to appear soon.
On behalf of Guido, I'd like to thank everyone who contributed to this release, and who continue to ensure Python's success.
