On behalf of the Python community, I'm happy to announce the  
availability of Python 2.6.4.  This is the latest production-ready  
version in the Python 2.6 series.

We had a little trouble with the Python 2.6.3 release; a number of  
unfortunate regressions were introduced.  I take responsibility for  
rushing it out, but the good news is that Python 2.6.4 fixes the known  
regressions in 2.6.3.  We've had a lengthy release candidate cycle  
this time, and are confident that 2.6.4 is a solid release.  We highly  
recommend you upgrade to Python 2.6.4.

Please see the NEWS file for all the gory details.

Source tarballs and the Windows installers can be downloaded from the  
Python 2.6.4 page.  The Mac OS X disk image will be uploaded soon.
