It's a bit difficult to say with much accuracy, so I'll be transparent 
but imprecise.  Our release of Enthon versions typically tracks the 
state of the platform we are using for the custom software development 
we do to pay the bills.  Thus, our current project code typically has to 
be ported to build and run on a cobbled-together build of the newer 
versions before we do a release.  I realize this is a drag on the 
release schedule for Enthon, but it's how we allocate resources to the 

Enough excuses, though--we are working on the migration of our project 
code now (Pearu Peterson) and I expect in weeks (rather than months) 
we'll have an Enthon release candidate with Python 2.4.2, and the latest 
SciPy and NumPy on Windows.

Robert Kern is already working on a project that is based on this tool 
chain, so the wedge is in place.

Thanks for the interest! (and sorry for the cross-post)
