[ANN] Python 2.5.5 Release Candidate 2.

On behalf of the Python development team and the Python community, I'm
happy to announce the release candidate 2 of Python 2.5.5.

This is a source-only release that only includes security fixes. The
last full bug-fix release of Python 2.5 was Python 2.5.4. Users are
encouraged to upgrade to the latest release of Python 2.6 (which is
2.6.4 at this point).

This releases fixes issues with the logging and tarfile modules, and
with thread-local variables. Since the release candidate 1, additional
bugs have been fixed in the expat module. See the detailed release
notes at the website (also available as Misc/NEWS in the source
distribution) for details of bugs fixed.

For more information on Python 2.5.5, including download links for
various platforms, release notes, and known issues, please see:

Highlights of the previous major Python releases are available from
the Python 2.5 page, at

Enjoy this release,
