Python 2.4, IPython 0.6.6, PythonNet 1.0-beta4

by Todd Ogasawara

I noticed a couple of Python-related releases over the past few weeks that haven't been mentioned here. So, here's the three I'm hoping to get some time to take a look at soon:

Released Nov. 30: Python 2.4
The announcement for this one mentions

Notable changes in Python 2.4 include improvements to the importing of modules, function decorators, generator expressions, a number of new modules (including subprocess, decimal and cookielib) and a host of bug fixes and other improvements.

Released Dec. 13: Python for .NET 1.0beta4
Its author (Brian Lloyd of Zope Corp.) describes it like this:

Python for .NET is a near-seamless integration of the Python runtime with the .NET Common Language Runtime (CLR). It lets you script and build applications in Python, using CLR services and components written in any language that targets the CLR (C#, Managed C++, VB.NET, etc.).

Released Dec. 13: IPython 0.6.6
Fernando Pérez describes it simply as

An enhanced Interactive Python shell.

It has ports for Linux (of course), Mac OS X, and Windows (plus a few others).

But, hmm, I wonder when we'll see another release of IronPython?

Got Python?
