A brand new release. The release notes has a record of all major changes.
A mailing list has been created for general discussion. Besides discussion it will also receive weekly status reports about the project if something important has happened. This helps developers to know what is coming in the future versions.
New version has been released. Nothing radical has been done but some twaking will be required when converting to the new runtime.
The new version has some changes that are incompatible with previous releases. Some new features (like basic support for DirectInput) and samples have been added and documentation has been slightly improved.
A new version of DirectPython will probably be released next week. Basic support for DirectInput has been added along with several other changes.
After some modifications a new release of DirectPython is available. Some code breakage can be expected, but issues should be relatively easy to fix. See the readme.txt for changes.
The next version will be hopefully released within a week. Some silent code breakage can be expected, but the necessary changes are quite easy to implement. It is unlikely that the future versions will break any code, at least not without a good reason.
Most of the visibe changes are small: there are some new features and samples but nothing worldshaking.
I have alredy started to plan the next release and some breaking changes have alredy been done. They are currently minor (some renderstates have been renamed and new ones have been added) and I doubt that there will be need for anything radical.
Remember to post those feature requests and bug reports if you have any. At this point *all* feedback is important so that I know what is important to users!

The first official release of DirectPython will be available for downloading within a week.
