I have uploaded an updated port of Python 2.1.1 to the incoming
directories of the Hobbes (http://hobbes.nmsu.edu) and LEO
(http://archiv.leo.org/) OS/2 software archives.

The update contains the following changes:-
- os.spawnv() and os.spawnve() use the native EMX routines rather than
  emulate them with fork();
- pythonpm.exe is now a real PM app with behaviour somewhat akin to the
  pythonw.exe in the Windows distribution.

The distributed archives are:
  python-2.1.1-os2emx-bin-010812.zip (binary installation package, 3.0MB)
  python-2.1.1-os2emx-src-010812.zip (source patches and makefiles, 106kB)

For those who already have the 010805 distribution, you only need to get
  python-2.1.1-os2emx-upd-010812.zip (250kB)

Note that the update archive has not been uploaded to Hobbes or LEO.  It
is available at http://www.andymac.org/python.html, along with the above
archives are if you can't find them at Hobbes or LEO.

OS/2 users enjoy!
