The Jython development team is pleased to announce that Jython 2.2rc3
is available for download:
See http://jython.org/Project/installation.html for installation

A few new pieces of functionality have been added since 2.2rc2:

    - Added telnetlib from CPython
    - Added cpython_compatible_select to select.  See
http://wiki.python.org/jython/SelectModule for information on when to
use it.
    - Several more java.nio exceptions are mapped to their
corresponding Python error codes when thrown.

The following bugs are also fixed in this release:

    - recv on closed sockets threw an exception instead returning the
empty string
    -  A PySystemState being garbage collected caused System.out and
System.in to be closed.  This would cause 'print' to stop working.
    - Closing a FileWrapper on a socket closes its underlying socket
    - Sockets just have their [In|Out]putStreams closed instead of
being properly shutdown by shutdown()
    - SO_REUSEADDR is reset on sockets from a server socket's accept
call causing later binds to the server socket's port to fail.
    - Client sockets that have bind called before connect don't
    - execfile() throws a NullPointerException in the interactive console
