I just made the following announcement on comp.lang.python. I hope you 
will find some use in our improvements just as we have found great use 
in the readline package you created. Thank you.


We are happy to announce the release of pyreadline 1.3. Pyreadline is 
based on UNC readline by Gary Bishop. UNC readline is not being 
developed further by Gary, and PyReadline can be considered the 
continuation of that project. This was done in full agreement with Gary, 
given his current development priorities.

Pyreadline is maintained by the ipython project 

New features:

     * Support for international characters (if you have the correct 
codepage active)
     * Copy and paste using the clipboard
     * Smart paste for convenient use with ipython. Converting tab 
separated data to python list or numpy array. Converting file paths to 
use / and escaping any spaces using \ .
     * Pasting of multiline code removing empty lines

Get it at: http://ipython.scipy.org/dist/pyreadline-1.3.win32.exe. 
Installations instructions are available on the pyreadline wiki.

Once again we would like to thank Gary for creating this readline package.
