Jython development gaining momentum

Jython developers gathered last Sunday in San Francisco and held a sprint to work on the next major release. This will bring Jython implementation of Python on par with the CPython implementation, which is now version 2.5.1 (with a v2.5.2 release candidate 1 released to public testing just few days ago). The San Francisco Sprint focused on the Roadmap list for the Jython 2.5.

There is not much information to work with in regards to what is the outcome to the Sprint, but I suppose a lot of good work came out of it. Hopefully we will see a stable release soon. With Groovy and JRuby already having a steady (and growing) number of followers, Jython needs a jolt.
