MacPython 2.1 is available for download. Get it via http://www.cwi.nl/%7Ejack/macpython.html .
Python is a high-level programming language that is suitable for simple scripting tasks as well as writing large applications. MacPython offers alot of Mac-specific extensions, including access to all major MacOS Toolbox modules (QuickDraw, QuickTime, AppleScript and many more), an Integrated Development Environment (in Python!), frameworks for windowing applications, unix-compatible cgi-scripting, image-manipulation libraries, numerical libraries, tk-based machine independent windowing and lots more. It also uniquely among Pythons allows you to create fully selfcontained (and, hence, distributable) applications without needing a C compiler or anything.
New in this version: - A choice of Carbon or Classic runtime, so runs on anything between MacOS 8.1 and MacOS X - Distutils support for easy installation of extension packages - BBedit language plugin - All the platform-independent Python 2.1 mods - New version of Numeric - Lots of bug fixes - Choice of normal and active installer
