Critical bug fix for Python 2.6
The Python developers have released Python 2.6.4 which they describe as a "critical bug fix for Python 2.6.3". Python 2.6.3 was released at the start of October but according to the developers there were a number of regressions in the logging package and in setuptools compatibility, which required fixing in Python 2.6.4.
According to the developers Python 2.6 is now in "bugfix-only mode" and no new features are being added. Python 3 is the current branch of Python where new development takes place. Python 2.6.4 is available to download now and is licensed under the Python Licence. Full details of the changes in Python 2.6.4 are in the NEWS file.
