> It is my greatest pleasure to announce the release of Python 2.7.5.
> 2.7.5 is the latest maintenance release in the Python 2.7 series. You may be
> surprised to hear from me so soon, as Python 2.7.4 was released slightly more
> than a month ago. As it turns out, 2.7.4 had several regressions and
> incompatibilities with 2.7.3. Among them were regressions in the zipfile, gzip,
> and logging modules. 2.7.5 fixes these. In addition, a data file for testing in
> the 2.7.4 tarballs and binaries aroused the suspicion of some virus
> checkers. The 2.7.5 release removes this file to resolve that issue.
> For details, see the Misc/NEWS file in the distribution or view it at
> Downloads are at
> As always, please report bugs to
> (Thank you to those who reported these bugs in 2.7.4.)
> This is a production release.
> Happy May,
> Benjamin Peterson
> 2.7 Release Manager
> (on behalf of all of Python 2.7's contributors)
