Hi everybody!  

i just uploaded a first public release of execnet, 
namely 1.0.0b1 to PyPI.   Grab it with easy_install/pip
on your favourite Python environment (also works by
unpacking the tarball with or without plain distutils).

execnet allows to ad-hoc instantiate local and remote 
Python interpreters, currently Python2.4, 2.5, 2.6 and
(new) also Python 3.1, Jython and PyPy-c.  It works 
on Windows, Linux and OSX.  

With execnet you can instantiate "gateways" between Python processes,
use "remote_exec" code execution and "channels" to perform 
structured data communication.  See here for more info:


Here is a list of changes from the rather internal 
1.0.0alpha2 to the now public 1.0.0b1 release:

* added new examples for NumPy, Jython, IronPython
* improved documentation
* include apipkg.py for lazy-importing
* integrated new serializer code from Benjamin Peterson
* improved support for Jython-2.5.1

have fun and let me know if you have issues,
