Release Notes: New features include default values for function/method parameters, "%" syntax to create strings with printf-like specifiers, "enscript" support, and "eval" functionality through compile() and apply(). The compiler is now totally re-entrant. Win32 Visual C++ project files were added. Alpha compatibility was added. Many updates and bugfixes were made.
Release Notes: Many minor enhancements were made. Regression testing has been improved. Error messages now are more detailed. It is possible to modify the default file extensions for source and compiled packages. A "printf" function has been added to the basic module. Some bugs have been fixed. The most important change is the implementation of Python-like named arguments to printing functions (printf, sprintf, ...). This makes it possible to specify arguments like "%(name)s" or "%(myval)g", and the corresponding values are fetched from the hash table (or other sequence) specified as an argument.
Release Notes: Sequence assignment to multiple lvalues, changes to syntax of multiple simultaneous assignment (now it uses brackets ([...] = [...]) instead of parentheses), debug data in bytecode objects and removal of the SetLineOP bytecode, improved hashing for floating point values, upgrading libltdl to version 1.2, and other bugfixes.
