On behalf of the Python development team and the Python community, I'm
happy to announce the release of Python 2.3.5 (final).

Python 2.3.5 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.

Python 2.3.5 contains an important security fix for SimpleXMLRPCServer -
for more, see the announcement of PSF-2005-001 at:


Python 2.3.5 is the last planned release in the Python 2.3 series, and
is being released for those people who still need to run Python 2.3.
Python 2.4 is a newer release, and should be preferred if possible. From
here, bugfix releases are switching to the Python 2.4 branch - 2.4.1
will be the next Python release.

For more information on Python 2.3.5, 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, more than 50 bugs 
    have been fixed, including a couple of bugs that could cause 
    Python to crash. 

Highlights of the previous major Python release (2.3) are available     
from the Python 2.3 page, at
