Python 2.6 final

It's here, the final version of Python 2.6 has been released. This is the last 2.x release of Python before the almighty Py3K. You can read what is new in Python 2.6 and of course, grab your own copy.

I'm fetching the installation now, eager to see if the installation will work with PyObjC on my Mac. Next thing on the list is to install Stackless.

Apple dropping NDA for iPhone Developers

I visited Apple Developer Connection site earlier, looking for some iPhone related resources. There was a message posted there, for all iPhone developers: Apple has decided to drop the non-disclosure agreement for released iPhone software!

In a released message, Apple stated that they have introduced the NDA to protect many of its inventions and innovations that have been put into the iPhone OS. They (finally) recognize that this has put a huge burden (and lots of problems) on the developers so they have decided to drop the whole thing.

However, this agreement is dropped only for developers who have released their software on the Apple Store, the NDA still covers the unreleased software until its release.

This will make a lot of developers much happier. Very good move by Apple!
