Python 1.6 alpha 2 is out! Lots of bug fixes, changes to
the windows installer, and more. Expect a third alpha
within two weeks or so.

Remember the slightly misleading 1.6 release note we pointed
to last week? Turned out that Guido didn't do it -- or at least
that's what he says:
In fact, Greg Ward claims he did it. And you know what? He
might be right -- after all, who else would use the word "frob"
sixteen times in a single post?
On the other hand, we keep hearing rumors that Greg is just
a scapegoat, and that the real story is that Barry has found
a portal into Guido's head:
Neil Schemenauer: Garbage collection for Python
Kevin Cazabon: PIL compatible fonts
Bruce Dodson: Python Language Support for ArcView GIS
Mark Hammond: win32all 130 for Python 1.6 available
Ken Seehof: Implementing generators in Python
Thomas Bellman: Why your network code may stop working
when switching from FDDI to Ethernet
Just van Rossum: Stackless Python for MacOS
Michael Hudson: bytecodehacks, April 2000
