-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
On behalf of the Python development team, I am pleased to announce the
final releases of Python 3.2.4 and 3.3.1.
Python 3.2.4 is the final regular maintenance release for the Python 3.2
series, while Python 3.3.1 is the first maintenance release for the 3.3
series. Both releases include hundreds of bugfixes.
There has recently been a lot of discussion about XML-based denial of service
attacks. Specifically, certain XML files can cause XML parsers, including ones
in the Python stdlib, to consume gigabytes of RAM and swamp the CPU. These
releases do not include any changes in Python XML code to address these issues.
Interested parties should examine the defusedxml package on PyPI:

In http://bugs.python.org/issue17618, I proposed adding a base85
implementation to Python. Mercurial already has one (under the GPL), so
I wrote to the authors (Brendan Cully and Mads Kiilerich) and got their
informal approval for relicensing and inclusion in Python.
My question is the following: does anything formal need to be done to
validate the relicensing? If yes, what?
