version is available at:


  Archives of the documentation in HTML, LaTeX, PDF, and PostScript
formats are available at the same location, and may also be downloaded
via FTP from:


  If you have any questions or comments on the documentation, please
send email to:


  Many additional modules have been documented (22 more!).  Many small
improvements have been made to other parts of the documentation as
well.  The following modules are now documented:

  asyncore	    dl                sched           
  chunk		    fpformat          SimpleHTTPServer
  cmp		    htmlentitydefs    statcache       
  cmpcache	    mutex             statvfs         
  codeop	    new               sunau           
  curses	    nis               SUNAUDIODEV     
  dircache	    pty               tty
  dl		    rlcompleter   

  Windows users:  If you installed Python using the installer rather
than by building from source, you can get the updated documentation by 
downloading the HTML archive and unpacking it into the "Doc" directory 
of your installation.

  Most of the new sections were contributions from the Python
community; your help makes the Python documentation some of the best
available for any free programming language!
