MacPython pre-production downloadsThis page lists a number of distributions that are in beta stage or earlier. The packages are expected to be fully functional, unless otherwise noted. They are made available with two main purposes: to allow early access for people that want it and (more importantly:-) so you, the community, can help debug these distributions.
Feedback is preferred through the normal channels, in other words: sending mail to the PythonMac-SIG is preferred to direct mail to Jack.

Installing the Panther Python Fix 1.3 will solve that problem by slightly changing the way Python 2.3 builds extensions.
MacPython-OSX 2.3.5For Mac OS X 10.2 and 10.3.
Available as a binary installer for OSX 10.2 and 10.3 (6 MB). Contains the current (and probably last) Python tree for the 2.3 series, including the new Package Manager. This distribution should also work fine on MacOSX 10.3, unlike previous 2.3.X installers.
If you install this on 10.3 it is strongly suggested you also install the fix for Apple Python.
MacPython-OS9 2.3.5For Mac OS 9 or later.
MacPython-OS9 2.3.5 will probably be the last release of MacPython-OS9, no more bug fix releases are expected.
Available in various formats:
