Due to a goof in the packaging scripts, the Windows installer
that was released on Friday for 2.4a3 broke file associations
for .py files. There's a fixed installer (python-2.4a3.2.msi)
available from the Python 2.4 web page.

There's also a patch for the breakage for on systems
that don't have support for the new os.urandom() call. This is
also available from the Python 2.4 web page.


We apologise to those affected by these bugs, and I'd like to
thank the folks who downloaded the release and let us know about
the problems so promptly.
