ActiveState Releases New Versions Of ActivePython Python Distribution

ActiveState has released ActivePython and ActivePython Python distributions. The new releases include –

* PyWin32: PyWin32 is now included in the 64-bit & Python3 builds! Since we recently updated our PyWin32 source tree, this release comes with several bug fixes.

* PyPM: There is now an “upgrade” feature in PyPM, our beloved Python Package Manager distributed with ActivePython free of charge. What this means is that if you type “pypm upgrade” it will update all your installed Python Packages to the latest version to save you time and keep you up-to-date.

* Switch between Python versions: Also new in this 2.6 release is a new tool called pythonselect that can be used to switch between multiple ActivePython versions.

* Dive Into Python 3: ActivePython now includes Mark Pilgrim’s Dive Into Python 3, the popular advanced tutorial for learning Python3. You can find it in the documentation section.
