For those how downloaded the new python, how big is it? I am speaking
of the DLL on Windows.

I am just curious; it would be interesting to compare the sizes of
earlier versions with this alpha release. These are the python
versions I know about:


[-] python21.dll, July, 26th, 2001, 693KB
[-] python23.dll, July, 29th, 2003, 953KB
[-] python24.dll, July, 10th, 2004, ?

The size of the v2.4 dll isn't really known right now. It's only the
first alpha which means that:

a: more stuff is going to be added
b: debugging code and other misc cruft is still in there.

We won't have a decent idea of the dll size until the first release
candidate later this year or early next year.

b) is actually not true: the DLL does not contain debug code. The
alpha is very similar to the release wrt. the build process.

As people said it's 1.7MB.

If you care about disk space you can use upx to compress it.
Using --best --force the dll is now 776K and the regression test passes.

Bye.
