On behalf of the Python development team, I'm happy as a swallow to announce a
release candidate for the fourth bugfix release for the Python 3.1
series, Python
3.1.4.

3.1.4 will the last bug fix release in the 3.1 series before 3.1. After 3.1.4,
3.1 will be in security-only fix mode.

The Python 3.1 version series focuses on the stabilization and optimization of
the features and changes that Python 3.0 introduced. For example, the new I/O
system has been rewritten in C for speed. File system APIs that use unicode
strings now handle paths with undecodable bytes in them. Other features include
an ordered dictionary implementation, a condensed syntax for nested with
statements, and support for ttk Tile in Tkinter. For a more extensive list of
changes in 3.1, see http://doc.python.org/3.1/whatsnew/3.1.html or Misc/NEWS in
the Python distribution.

This is a testing release. To download Python 3.1.4rc1 visit:

A list of changes in 3.1.4 can be found here:

Enjoy!

    P.S. For the most part, if you have a choice, then you are much
    better off using Py3.2 than any release (even a bugfix release) of
    Py3.1
