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

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 bugs pop up, the next release of Python will
be Python 2.5 (alpha 1), with a final 2.4.4 release of Python 
shortly after the final version of Python 2.5. The release plan
for Python 2.5 is documented in PEP-0356.

For more information on Python 2.4.3, 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, at least 50
    have been fixed.

  - A small number of bugs, regressions and reference leaks 
    have been fixed since Python 2.4.3 release candidate 1. 
    See NEWS.txt for more.

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

Enjoy this new release,

Anthony Baxter
