Now that Jython is hosted on SourceForge, is there an ETA on when
the Jython package will be available for download?
I'm assuming that it'll come out as Jython 1.0 and will incorporate
all the functionality and features of JPython 1.1 along with Finn Bock's
last errata package. Is this correct?

There is no estimate at this time.

1) The version would most likely be Jython-2.0:
Jython 2.0 pre-alpha on java1.3.0 (JIT: null)
Type "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
IMO, this version number makes perfect sense considering that
jpython-2.0 is fully compatible with all the new features in Python-2.0.
2) It will certainly contain all of the errata. All fixes in the errata
have already been added to the CVS. There will never be a reason for
choosing the errata over jython.
3) The CVS version already contain more fixes and features than the
errata. Extended print and list comprehension to name two.
There are still some things which I would like to see fixed before an
- Maybe a new installer. A free one for instance. It would be nice if
everyone could create an installable .class file.
- Small changes to the way classes are loaded. This is to fix the "can't
coerce self" bug and remove some of the differences between java package
and java dir packages.
