Quelques liens en vrac sur les sorties de python 2.6.5 , python 3.1.2 et pypy 1.2

  • http://morepypy.blogspot.com/2010/03/introducing-pypy-12-release.html (« We are pleased to announce PyPy’s 1.2 release. This version 1.2 is a major milestone and it is the first release to ship a Just-in-Time compiler that is known to be faster than CPython (and unladen swallow) on some real-world applications (or the best benchmarks we could get for them). The main theme for the 1.2 release is speed. »)
    • http://pypy.org/features.html (‘PyPy 1.2 implements Python 2.5. It supports all of the core language, passing the Python test suite (with minor modifications that were already accepted in the main python in newer versions). It supports most of the commonly used Python standard library modules. For known differences with CPython, see our compatibility page. PyPy 1.2 runs essentially only on Intel x86 (IA-32). On 64-bit platforms you have to use the 32-bit compatibility mode, for now — or contact us to help’)
    • Speed: thanks to its Just-in-Time compiler, Python programs often run faster on PyPy. (What is a JIT compiler?)
    • Memory usage: large, memory-hungry Python programs might end up taking less space than they do in CPython.
    • Sandboxing: PyPy provides the ability to run untrusted code in a fully secure way.
    • Stackless: PyPy can be configured to run in stackless mode, providing micro-threads for massive concurrency.
    • As well as other features. »)
