On behalf of the Python development team and the Python community, I  
am happy to announce the first release candidate for Python 2.6.

This is a release candidate, so while it is not suitable for  
production environments, we strongly encourage you to download the  
release and test it on your software.  We expect only critical bugs to  
be fixed between now and the final 2.6 release, still scheduled for  
October 1st, 2008.  There is one more release candidate planned for  
September 17th.

You might notice that unlike earlier releases, we are /not/ releasing  
Python 3.0rc1 at this time.  It was decided that 3.0 still needs time  
to resolve open issues and that we would not hold up the 2.6 release  
for this.  We feel that Python 2.6 is nearly ready for its final  
release.

If you find things broken or incorrect, please submit bug reports at

     http://bugs.python.org

For more information and downloadable distributions, see the Python  
2.6 website:

    http://www.python.org/download/releases/2.6/

(Note that the Windows installers will be uploaded shortly.)

See PEP 361 for release schedule details:

Enjoy,
- -Barry
