On behalf of the Python development team and the Python community, 
I'm happy to announce the release of Python 2.5.1 (release 
candidate 1).

This is the first bugfix release of Python 2.5. Python 2.5 is now 
in bugfix-only mode; no new features are being added. According to 
the release notes, over 150 bugs and patches have been addressed 
since Python 2.5, including a fair number in the new AST compiler 
(an internal implementation detail of the Python interpreter).

For more information on Python 2.5.1, including download links for
various platforms, release notes, and known issues, please see:

    been fixed.

Enjoy this release,
