Just gave it a whirl.   Some problems.

The first thing I did was, from a DOS window python session:
from scipy import plt
plt.plot((1,2,3))

pythonw.exe crash, asking me if I want to send a note to Microsoft.


Then tried PyCrust shell.
from scipy import plt
plt.plot((1,2,3))

This time the plot appeared, along with an error dialog:
C:\Python23\lib\site-packages\wxPython\gdi.py:600: DeprecationWarning:
integer argument expected, got float
  val = gdic.wxDC_DrawEllipse(self, *_args, **_kwargs)


This looks like it might be a wxPython warning.  Nonetheless...

Finally
from chaco import wxplt
wxplt.plot((1,2,3))

Plots the data, but again an error dialog:
C:\Python23\lib\site-packages\kiva\agg\agg.py:611: DeprecationWarning:
integer argument expected, got float
  def draw_glyphs(*args): return
apply(_agg._GraphicsContextArray_draw_glyphs,args)

Again, it looks like a warning, but ...

so far I'm 0 for 3.

bugs?  or am I buggy?

Subject: [SciPy-user] Announce: Python 2.3 for Windows (Enthought Edition)
now available


Just a quick heads up that Python 2.3 for Windows (Enthought Edition) is now
available at:

http://www.enthought.com

This is in addition to the Python 2.2.3 for Windows (Enthought Edition) that
was previously announced. Besides the obvious feature of being based on
Python 2.3, this new version also includes updates to several other
packages, such as wxPython

So if you've been putting off giving Python 2.3 a spin, now might be a good
time to upgrade. And if you do decide to give it a try, we'd also appreciate
hearing from you either on the mailing lists or on the bug tracker
concerning what you think about the new Python distribution.

Enjoy!
