Subject: Dr. Dobb's Python-URL! - weekly Python news and links (Jul 10)

Python 1.6 has been renumbered Python 2.0, and Guido explains why: "While Python users have grown fond of Python's exceedingly small version number increments, those low version numbers make parts of the rest of the world think that Python is barely out of its first alpha test. Especially enterprise customers are often fearful of anything that's version 1.x!" Ah, marketing!

An alpha version of a Palm Pilot port of Python-1.5.2+ is announced: (Presumably 1.5.2+ means 1.5.2 plus some of the changes from the CVS tree) "This release includes the modified Python source and tools for creating Palm applications from Python modules. ... We emphasize that this is an alpha release and is deficient in many respects."
