Hi Python-community,

The Stackless Python beta has been ported to the
Python 2.2.2 release, one day after the announce.

It could have been even faster, but I had to work
a lot on typeobject.c, which had been backported from 2.3.
My own patches to that are now very tiny and will be
submitted, soon.

Changes to Stackless:
The option to build statically has been re-enabled.
Supported platforms are now
  Mac OS X,
  SunOS Sparc with gcc,
  PPC Unix,
  S390 & S390x.
A scheduler object with overridable strategies has been
prepared (functionality will be added these days)
Metatypes can have slots (se above).

See http://www.stackless.com/ for details, CVS access etc.
Binaries for Python 2.2.2 have been built and include _tkinter.

CVS access to the last 2.2.1 version is possible, check out
with the tag "last_2_2_1".

good luck - chris
