Dear edu-sig friends,

Crunchy version 0.9.8 has been released.

Crunchy is an application that transforms static html-based Python
tutorials into interactive sessions within your browser (Firefox;
other browsers *may* not fully support Crunchy).

Crunchy is available from http://code.google.com/p/crunchy

Since the last public release, the following changes have been introduced:

* Important changes to security model.
  + 6 security levels.
* New interpreter types  (following suggestions made on edu-sig by M.
Tobis and J. Posner regarding new functionality for IDLE...)
* New interpreter options.
* New option (used by default) to view tutorials that have no
Crunchy-specific markup.
* More documentation.
* Friendlier tracebacks (for Python beginners) - translatable in
languages other than English.
* Automatic updating of sys.path so that tutorials can make use of
Python's import statement.
* More configuration options.
* New math_graphics module.
* New logo.
* New look.
* French translation of Crunchy/Python messages (not documentation)
almost complete.
+ many more.

Bug reports, comments and suggestions are always welcome.
