Version 0.4.5 and News on 0.5.0

Version 0.4.5

Version 0.4.5 is now available, hurrah. This is a bugifx/update release. The distributions it produces are very *similar* to version 0.4.4 distributions, but there are a couple of issues resolved. See http://www.voidspace.org.uk/python/movpy/changelog.html for details.

Version 0.4.4 Available

Ok - version 0.4.4 of Movable Python is now available. Both a source distribution and prebuilt environments for python 2.4.

Pre-release Available

Preliminary docs are now online at the homepage :
http://www.voidspace.org.uk/python/movpy/index.html

You can download the distribution maker from :
http://www.voidspace.org.uk/cgi-bin/voidspace/downman.py?file=testenv.zip

That version is the 0.4.3 version... but with incomplete docs. As soon as the docs are complete I'll do a sourceforge release, including some prebuilt environments.
