I'm happy to announce that ActivePython 2.4.1 for Solaris 10 on SPARC,
x86 and x64 systems is now available for free download from:

This release adds support for Solaris running on x86 and x64 systems.

Note: This release (build 247) also includes important updates for the
recently released ActivePython for Mac OS X. Please see the release
notes for details.

What is ActivePython?

ActivePython is ActiveState's quality-assured binary distribution of
Python.  Builds for Linux, Mac OS X, Solaris and Windows are made freely

ActivePython includes the Python core and core extensions (zlib 1.2.1,
bzip2 1.0.2, bsddb 4.2.52, Tk 8.4.9, and Tix 8.1.4) and is fully
compatible with other Python distributions of the same version.

ActivePython also includes a wealth of Python documentation, including:
- the core Python docs;
- Andrew Kuchling's "What's New in Python" series;
- the Non-Programmer's Tutorial for Python;
- Mark Pilgrim's excellent "Dive into Python"; and
- a snapshot of the Python FAQs, HOWTOs and PEPs.

An online version of the docs can be found here:

Thanks, and enjoy!
