Python 2.0.1 - a bugfix release for Python 2.0
Note: This is no longer the most current Python release. See the download page for more recent releases.
We're releasing Python 2.0.1 - the final bugfix release for Python 2.0.
Note that Python 2.1 is still not GPL-compatible, but we're planning a bugfix release there too, Python 2.1.1, with the same GPL-compatible license.
Download the release
Windows users should download Python-2.0.1.exe, the Windows installer, from one of the download locations below, run it, and follow the friendly instructions on the screen to complete the installation. (Python-2.0.1-Debug.zip is a set of DLLs for Windows developers compiled in debug mode; it contains nothing of value for regular Python users.) Windows users may also be interested in Mark Hammond's win32all, a collection of Windows-specific extensions including COM support and Pythonwin, an IDE built using Windows components.
All others should download Python-2.0.1.tgz, the source tarball, from one of the download locations below, and do the usual "gunzip; tar; configure; make" dance.
