Hi all,

As you may already know, Python(x,y) is a free scientific-oriented
Python Distribution based on Qt and Eclipse providing a self-consistent 
scientific development environment.

Release 2.0.1 is now available on http://www.pythonxy.com.
(Full release, and update patch)
Note: ITK will be updated in the next release (3.6 -> 3.8) and GDCM
will be included.

Changes history
08-14-2008 - Version 2.0.1 :

** Added **
o Python(x,y) is now available in two versions (due to disk quota limits 
- and to the unusual size of the 2.0.1 update, the Basic Edition will 
not be available online, at least in the next few weeks): Full Edition 
(all Python
packages are installed, some are optional like ETS or ITK) and Basic
Edition (with essential Python libraries only: PyQt4, NumPy, SciPy,
IPython and matplotlib)
o SWIG 1.3.36 - SWIG is a compiler that integrates C and C++ with
several languages including Python
o Pyrex - Pyrex is a language for writing Python extension
modules (Note: Cython - which is based on Pyrex - is already included in
the distribution)
o xy 1.0.2 - xy is a module that gathers all Python(x,y) tools

** Updated **
o Enthought Tool Suite 2.8.0
o NumPy 1.1.1
o matplotlib 0.98.3
o Pywin32 2.12
o pp (Parallel Python) 1.5.5
o SymPy 0.6.1
o PyTables 2.0.4
o Eclipse 3.4.0 (CDT 5.0)
o PyDev 1.3.19 (Eclipse plugin)
o Qt Eclipse Integration 1.4.1
o Photran 4.0b4 (Eclipse plugin)
o Wicked Shell 2.0.4 (Eclipse plugin)
o StartExplorer 0.0.4 (Eclipse plugin)
o Notepad++ 5.0.3 (and added Python script execution shortcut: Shift+F1)
o Console 2 installer: checking if an old configuration file exists (and
deleting it) before installation
o Console 2 configuration: window transparency has been disabled because
of display bugs with TVTK
o IPython(x,y) profile: added customizable startup script

** Corrected **
o IPython : IPython(x,y) profile startup script can now be customized
o PyQt4: installation folder is added to PATH, allowing to use directly
pyrcc4.exe, pylupdate.exe, ...
o Missing documentation in the following packages: Cython, GDAL, DAP,
o Minor bug in package uninstallers: dialog box with an error message
but without any consequence
o ITK module installer: Visual C++ 2008 libraries installer
"vcredist.exe" has a known bug which will be fixed in release 2008 SP1 -
some temporary files are erroneously copied to the system root -
meanwhile, these files are now deleted at the end of the installation
