On behalf of the Python community, I'm happy to announce the availability of
Python 2.6.5 final.  This is the latest production-ready version in the Python
2.6 series.

Python 2.6.5 fixes dozens of issues in the core, built-in modules, libraries,
and documentation since Python 2.6.4 was released back in October 2009.  We
highly recommend that you upgrade to Python 2.6.5.

Please see the NEWS file for all the gory details.

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

For more information on Python 2.6 in general, please see

Please report bugs for any Python version in the Python tracker.
