New Revision: 29071

      - copied, changed from r28939, pypy/dist/pypy/doc/events.txt
clearer separation between news and the event history, 
bidirectionally linking between them, only "news" is in the menu now. 

upcoming events/announcements should go to news.txt
and then be moved to eventhistory if they belong to
the past.

-Preliminary EU reports released
-After many hours of writing and typo-hunting we finally finished the
-`reports for the EU`_. They contain most of the material found on our regular
-documentation page but also a lot of new material not covered there. Note that
-all these documents are not approved by the European Union and therefore only
-preliminary. *(01/06/2006)*

-PyPy Sprint in Göteborg 7th - 11th December 2005 
-The Gothenburg sprint is over. It was a very productive sprint: work has
-been started on a JIT prototype, we added support for __del__ in PyPy, 
-the socket module had some progress, PyPy got faster and work was started to
-expose the internals of our parser and bytecode compiler to the user.
-Michael and Carl have written a `report about the first half`_ and `one about
-the second half`_ of the sprint.  *(12/18/2005)*

-PyPy release 0.8.0
-The third PyPy release is out, with an integrated and translatable
-compiler, speed progress, and now the possibility to translate our
-experimental "Thunk" object space (supporting lazy computed objects)
-with its features preserved.
-See the `release 0.8 announcement`_ for further details about the release and
-the `getting started`_ document for instructions about downloading it and
-trying it out.  There is also a short FAQ_.  *(11/03/2005)*

-PyPy Sprint in Paris 10th-16th October 2005 
-The Paris sprint is over. We are all at home again and more or less exhausted.
-The sprint attracted 18 participants and took place in
-`Logilab offices in Paris`_. We were happy to have five new 
-developers to the PyPy Community! The focus was on implementing
-`continuation-passing`_ style (stackless), making the translation process
-work for target languages with more powerful object systems and some tiny
-steps into the JIT_ direction. Michael and Carl have written
-a `report about day one`_ and `one about day two and three`_. 
-Together with Armin they wrote one about `the rest of the sprint`_ on the
-way back.

-PyPy Sprint in Heidelberg 22nd-29th August 2005
-The last `PyPy sprint`_ took place at the Heidelberg University
-in Germany from 22nd August to 29th August (both days included). 
-Its main focus is translation of the whole PyPy interpreter 
-to a low level language and reaching 2.4.1 Python compliance.
-The goal of the sprint is to release a first self-contained
-PyPy-0.7 version.  Carl has written a report about `day 1 - 3`_, 
-there are `some pictures`_ online and a `heidelberg summary report`_
-detailing some of the works that led to the successful release 
-of `pypy-0.7.0`_!

-PyPy Hildesheim2 finished: first self-contained PyPy run! 
-Up until 31st August we were in a PyPy sprint at `Trillke-Gut`_. 
-Carl has written a `report about day 1`_, Holger 
-about `day 2 and day 3`_ and Carl again about `day 4 and day 5`_, 
-On `day 6`_ Holger reports the `breakthrough`_: PyPy runs 
-on its own! Hurray_!.  And Carl finally reports about the winding
-down of `day 7`_ which saw us relaxing, discussing and generally 
-having a good time.   You might want to look at the selected 
-`pictures from the sprint`_.

-EuroPython 2005 sprints finished 
-We had two sprints around EuroPython, one more internal core
-developer one and a public one.  Both sprints were quite
-successful.  Regarding the Pre-EuroPython sprint Michael Hudson 
-has posted summaries of `day 1`_, `day 2`_ and `day 3`_ on 
-the `pypy-dev`_ mailing list.  The larger public sprint 
-has not been summarized yet but it went very well.  We had
-20 people initially attending to hear the tutorials and 
-work a bit.  Later with around 13-14 people we made the
-move to Python-2.4.1, integrated the parser, improved 
-the LLVM backends and type inference in general.
