We've released a second release candidate for the next bugfix release
of Python, 2.2.1.

There haven't been many changes since 2.2.1c1, just a few fixes.

Note for AIX users: there are still problems with AIX in this release,
and there has not been time to repair them without fear of breaking
platforms that currently work.  Hopefully by the time of the release
of 2.2.1 final we will be able to provide a recipe that allows AIX
users to build and run Python.

Get the scoop (and the files) here:

In order to make 2.2.1 a solid release, please help by

+ Building the release, and running the test suite on your platform.
+ Running *your* extension modules' and applications' test suites
  against this release.
+ Reporting any problems to the bug tracker at sf:

This being a bugfix release, there are no exciting new features -- we just
fixed a lot of bugs.  For a moderately complete list, please see:

Feel free to email me the output of "make test", but please check that
you are not duplicating effort by reading this page first:

2.2.1 final will follow "soon".
