-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
On behalf of the Python development team and the Python community, I'm
happy to announce the second beta of Python 2.4.
Python 2.4b2 is a beta release. We'd greatly appreciate it if you could
download it, kick the tires and let us know of any problems you find,
but it is probably not suitable for production usage.
Notable changes in beta2 include another bug fix in the intersection
of weakrefs and the garbage collector, time.strptime() correctly
handling %U and %W arguments, and a fix for a problem of old source code
being cached and shown in tracebacks. There's a number of other bugfixes
as well, see either the highlights, the What's New in Python 2.4, or the
detailed NEWS file -- all available from the Python 2.4 webpage.
This is the second beta release of Python 2.4. Python 2.4 is now in the
beta part of the release cycle - there should be few or no new features,
merely bug fixes. From here, we plan to have a release candidate in
a couple of weeks, and a final release at the start of December - but
obviously this plan is subject to change, based on any problems that
might crop up.
Please log any problems you have with this release in the SourceForge
bug tracker (noting that you're using 2.4b2):
Enjoy the new release,
Python Release Manager
(on behalf of the entire python-dev team)

The fourth Python Bug Day is coming up this Sunday, November 7 2004.
This Sunday, November 7, 2004. I'll be online at least from 11AM to 6PM CET
(10AM to 5PM GMT/ 6AM to 1PM EDT). That's a rather short time for the people in
the USian timezones, so I would like to see someone with CVS access from those
zones extend the bug day. Anyone interested?

#- Hello , I have a problem with a peice of code :
Satyarth, this list is for development of Python itself, not for development
of programs in Python.
This post should go to the standard python newsgroup, comp.lang.python,
which can be accessed as a news or as a mailing list (for further reference

Current test_shutil is apparently trying to do something that can't
work on Windows, so it fails:
test test_shutil failed -- Traceback (most recent call last):
File "C:\Code\python\lib\test\test_shutil.py", line 28, in test_on_error
File "C:\Code\python\lib\shutil.py", line 168, in rmtree

File "C:\Code\python\lib\test\test_shutil.py", line 36, in
AssertionError: <built-in function rmdir> != <built-in function remove>
1 test failed:
After that, it leaves behind temp directories that cause other tests
to fail. Sorry, I've got other problems on my stack, and can't make
time for this one.
