Python 3.2 has been released, with a plethora of newness. Check out the 'What’s New In Python 3.2' page: http://docs.python.org/dev/whatsnew/3.2.html or from their release announcement: "Python 3.2 is a continuation of the efforts to improve and stabilize the Python 3.x line. Since the final release of Python 2.7, the 2.x line will only receive bugfixes, and new features are developed for 3.x only." at http://www.python.org/download/releases/3.2/

Winamp have confirmed in a post to their own forums that email addresses used for the forums have been compromised. Users are recommended to change their passwords as a precautionary measure, and advised that the level of spam they receive may go up. Forum users may have also received an email from Winamp advising them of the compromise. The advisory is here: http://forums.winamp.com/showthread.php?t=327374. Thanks Evan for letting us know.

In a forum Kaspersky users discussed being unable to update their anti-virus product. The posting entitled 'Problem with the bases, Cannot update databases with 2011' is here: http://forum.kaspersky.com/index.php?showtopic=201405. It appears as though the issue has not yet been fully resolved. Thanks Bill for letting us know.
