Python 2.5.5 Release Candidate 1.

On behalf of the Python development team and the Python community, I’m
happy to announce the release candidate 1 of Python 2.5.5.

This is a source-only release that only includes security fixes. The
last full bug-fix release of Python 2.5 was Python 2.5.4. Users are
encouraged to upgrade to the latest release of Python 2.6 (which is
2.6.4 at this point).

This releases fixes issues with the logging and tarfile modules, and
with thread-local variables. See the detailed release notes at the
website (also available as Misc/NEWS in the source distribution) for
details of bugs fixed.

For more information on Python 2.5.5, including download links for
various platforms, release notes, and known issues, please see:

Enjoy this release,
Martin
