On behalf of the Python development team and the Python community, I'm
happy to announce the release of Python 2.3.5 (release candidate 1).

Python 2.3.5 is a bug-fix release. See the release notes at the website
(also available as Misc/NEWS in the source distribution) for details of
the bugs squished in this release.

Assuming no major problems crop up, a final release of Python 2.3.5 will
follow in about a week's time. 

Python 2.3.5 is the last release in the Python 2.3 series, and is being
released for those people who still need to use Python 2.3. Python 2.4
is a newer release, and should be preferred if possible. From here,
bugfix releases are switching to the Python 2.4 branch - a 2.4.1 will
follow 2.3.5 final.

For more information on Python 2.3.5, including download links for
various platforms, release notes, and known issues, please see:

Highlights of this new release include:

  - Bug fixes. According to the release notes, more than 50 bugs 
    have been fixed, including a couple of bugs that could cause 
    Python to crash. 

Highlights of the previous major Python release (2.3) are available     
from the Python 2.3 page, at                                        

Enjoy the new release,

Anthony Baxter
