2.6 RC 1 is out
If you didn't already know it, 2.6 RC 1 was released two days ago. There's nothing big to report (and there shouldn't be of course!). In fact, the biggest change you may notice is the absence of a 3.0 RC alongside. This is due to the fact that we believe although 2.6 is almost rock solid, 3.0 definitely still needs some more TLC. We are still aiming for a 2.6 final on October 1st, but 3.0 has been pushed back to the 15th. (You can, of course, see the whole release schedule in PEP 361.) Please, please, please take the time to download it and test it with your project;
now is when we want to know about grotesque bugs and incompatibilities!
