On behalf of the Python development team and the Python 
community, I'm happy to announce the release of Python 2.4.3 
(release candidate 1).

Python 2.4.3 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 more than 50 bugs squished 
in this release, including a number found by the Coverity 
Scan project.

Assuming no major problems crop up, a final release of 
Python 2.4.3 will follow in about a week's time.
