ActivePython is released (Windows-only bugfix)

Wednesday, 12 April 2006

ActivePython was just released to fix a problem with how PATHEXT is set on Windows. From the release notes:

  • [Windows] Fix a bug that results in ".pyo" and ".pyc" being placed on the PATHEXT environment variable before ".py" for clean installs. Bug 33311. This can cause surprises for command-line usage for Python scripts when not specifying the ".py" extension. The new installer will fix PATHEXT on machines that hit this bug.

See this python-list thread for more details.

The release notes are here and the announcements should be hitting the lists soon.
