Welcome to Jython 2.2rc1 ======================= This is the first release candidate of the 2.2 version of Jython. It contains all of the new features for the 2.2 release: - new-style classes - Java List integration - a PEP 302 implementation - iterators - generators - __future__ division - support for running on modern JVMs - a new installer - ssl and non-blocking support for socket In addition to these major features, many bugs have been fixed from 2.2b2. See the NEWS file for a more complete list of changes. The release was compiled on Mac OS X with JDK 5 but it should run on 1.4.2+. This release is intended to find any major bugs before releasing 2.2. If none are found, this will become the 2.2 release. If you can run this and check for bugs, it will be greatly appreciated. Bug reports can be created at http://jython.org/bugs whereas more general questions can be sent to the Jython-users mailing list, firstname.lastname@example.org. If this release proves stable, the final release of 2.2 will be in a couple weeks. If not, successive release candidates will be made until all the major bugs are ironed out.
