 <p>
 Currently, development of the bridge is primarily focused upon the <a href="http://www.apple.com/macosx/">Mac OS X</a> and <a href="http://www.opensource.apple.com/">Darwin</a> platforms.  Within this environment, PyObjC can be used to entirely replace Objective-C in the development of Cocoa based applications and Foundation based command line tools.</p>

-For the first time ever, the PyObjC module has a real web site (the start of one anyway).  The implementation is largely a copy of the <a href="http://fink.sourceforge.net/">Fink project's excellent site.</a>.  The design and graphics were contributed by <a href="http://starship.python.net/crew/jwt/">Jim Tittsler</a>.  The content was compiled from many sources-- Jim's work, Fink, the PyObjC source trees and some original-- by <a href="http://radio.weblogs.com/0100490/">Bill Bumgarner</a>.

-  <p> On or about this date, an interim release of PyObjC was made available as a disk image that contained the binary module (compatible with Apple's build of Python included with OS X 10.2), a Project Builder project template for building Cocoa applications using Python, and a basic README.</p>
-  <p>Version 0.7.0 represents a huge step forward over the previous version (0.6.1).  Of note, 0.7.0 vastly improved the inter-language messaging mechanism, the bridging of various classes, improved support for features specific to the Foundation and AppKit, support for the Address Book framework, and subclassing of Objective-C classes in Python.</p>

 Many, many people have contributed to the PyObjC module in the recent months.  The mailing list should be parsed to complete this list.
 <ul>
+<li>Just van Rossum contributed numerous bits of python that both simplified the use of PyObjC and increased its power.</li>
 <li>Jack Jansen has provided constant technical assistance and direction based on his wealth of experience as the primary developer of the MacPython project.</li>
 <li>Jim Tittsler provided a significant chunk of the look/feel of this web site, including the cool PyDog graphic.</li>
 <li>The <a href="http://fink.sourceforge.net/">Fink Project</a> deserves a huge amount of credit.  Beyond providing a model for building this site, Fink represents an incredible base of knowledge to anyone working with various open source tools and OS X.
