RELEASED Python 2.4, alpha 2

On behalf of the Python development team and the Python community, I'm
happy to announce the second alpha of Python 2.4.

Python 2.4a2 is an alpha release. We'd greatly appreciate it if you
could download it, kick the tires and let us know of any problems you
find, but it is not suitable for production usage.


In this release we have new syntax for function decorators, a fix for
failing imports so that they don't leave a broken module in sys.modules,
a host of updated modules in the standard library (including optparse
and doctest) and a large number of other bug fixes and improvements.
See either the highlights, the What's New in Python 2.4, or the detailed
NEWS file -- all available from the Python 2.4 webpage.

There will probably be one more alpha in a few weeks before the first
beta a few weeks after that.

Please log any problems you have with this release in the SourceForge
bug tracker (noting that you're using 2.4a2):


Enjoy the new release,
