On behalf of the Python development team and the Python community, I
am happy to announce the first beta releases of Python 2.6 and Python
3.0.

Please note that these are beta releases, and as such are not suitable
for production environments. We continue to strive for a high degree
of quality, and these releases are intended to freeze the feature set
for Python 2.6 and 3.0.

From now until the planned final releases in September 2008, we will
be fixing known problems and stabilizing these new Python versions.
You can help by downloading and testing them, providing feedback and
hopefully helping to fix bugs. You can also use these releases to
determine how changes in 2.6 and 3.0 might impact you. 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/

and the Python 3.0 web site:

http://www.python.org/download/releases/3.0/

See PEP 361 for release schedule details:

http://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0361/

Enjoy,
- -Barry

As usual, this is the source code release.
A Windows installer built from that code should follow soon.
Martin has usually done so within a day or two.
So be patient along with me ;-).

Any ETA for Windows builds? The web pages still point to the alphas.
(I'd like to see the Windows builds more closely integrated with the
releases now we're in beta stage...)

Martin usually fills these in pretty quickly. I think the current
situation works fine for the betas but we'll make sure the final
release (and candidates) are better coordinated.
