On behalf of the Python development team and the Python community, I'm
happy to announce the release of Python 2.4.1 (release candidate 2).

Python 2.4.1 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 2.4.1 will
be out around the 29th of March - straight after PyCon.

For more information on Python 2.4.1, 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, several dozen bugs
    have been fixed, including a fix for the SimpleXMLRPCServer 
    security issue (PSF-2005-001).

  - A handful other bugs discovered in the first release candidate 
    have been fixed in this version.

Highlights of the previous major Python release (2.4) are available     
from the Python 2.4 page, at                                        

Enjoy the new release,

Anthony Baxter
