Hi all,

I'm quite pleased (and relieved) to announce that Python(x,y) version 
2.6.3.0 has been released. It is the first release based on Python 2.6 
-- note that Python(x,y) version number will now follow the included 
Python version (Python(x,y) vX.Y.Z.N will be based on Python vX.Y.Z).

Python(x,y) is a free Python distribution providing a ready-to-use 
scientific development software for numerical computations, data 
analysis and data visualization based on Python programming language, Qt 
graphical user interfaces (and development framework), Eclipse 
integrated development environment and Spyder interactive development 
environment. Its purpose is to help scientific programmers used to 
interpreted languages (such as MATLAB or IDL) or compiled languages 
(C/C++ or Fortran) to switch to Python.

It is now available for Windows XP/Vista/7 (as well as for Ubuntu 
through the pythonxy-linux project -- note that included software may 
differs from the Windows version):
