Announcing CorePy 1.0 - http://www.corepy.org  

We are pleased to announce the latest release of CorePy. CorePy is a
complete system for developing machine-level programs in Python.
CorePy lets developers build and execute assembly-level programs
interactively from the Python command prompt, embed them directly in
Python applications, or export them to standard assembly languages. 

CorePy's straightforward APIs enable the creation of complex,
high-performance applications that take advantage of processor
features usually inaccessible from high-level scripting languages,
such as multi-core execution and vector instruction sets (SSE, VMX,
SPU).  

This version addresses the two most frequently asked questions about
CorePy:

1) Does CorePy support x86 processors?
   Yes! CorePy now has extensive support for 32/64-bit x86 and SSE 
   ISAs on Linux and OS X*.

2) Is CorePy Open Source? 
   Yes!  CorePy now uses the standard BSD license.

Of course, CorePy still supports PowerPC and Cell BE SPU processors.
In fact, for this release, the Cell run-time was redesigned from the
ground up to remove the dependency on IBM's libspe and now uses the
system-level interfaces to work directly with the SPUs (and, CorePy is
still the most fun way to program the PS3).  

CorePy is written almost entirely in Python.  Its run-time system
does not rely on any external compilers or assemblers.

If you have the need to write tight, fast code from Python, want
to demystify machine-level code generation, or just miss the good-old 
days of assembly hacking, check out CorePy!

And, if you don't believe us, here's our favorite user quote:

"CorePy makes assembly fun again!"
