    latest version of python??

    hi all

    i was surfing the net and i would like to know what is the current most up-to-date version of python for symbian s60 now?

    i checked the opensource.nokia site it says 1.3.1 but when i used a search engine, i found a document which is for python for s60 release 1.4.3 final?

    i'm a bit confused now.

    Do you mean pre-installed (as in installed by Nokia)? If so, no, sadly .

    Ok. That means Python 1.4.4 has to be installed by the user himself in order to use it correct? Because you said that Nokia does not pre-install it into their phones.

    Does this mean that S60 2nd and 3rd edition uses another version of Python?

    Users have to install Python (whatever version they want, 1.4.4 is the most recent one) themselves just like they would install any application.

    Oh ok, I think I understand now.

    Correct me if I am wrong, that means Python does not exist in the phone until the user installs it in. That is correct right?

    Last version for 2nd and 3rd phones is 1.4.4 as said by Bogdan
    For 1st phones it's 1.3.1 (no other version is supported officialy)
    Some fans have compiled a new version but it's NOT supported by Nokia !
    version for 2nd and 3rd are globally the same except some rare features not existing in 2nd.

    links :
    PyS60 1.3.22 for 1st (unofficial)

    BR
    Cyke64
    pys60 1.4.5 and 2.0.0, pygame, PyS60 CE on E90 and 5800 !

    If you guys are talking about versions it is also important to mention that PyS60 (all versions) is a port of CPython (http://python.org) version 2.2.2 (it was the newest version when the port was started).

    version 2.2.2 was NOT the newest version when PyS60 appeared (first version available to selected audience in mid 2004 (correct me JPLauril !)
    version 2.3.1 appeared in July 2003 !

    PyS60 uses NOT ONLY core python source 2.2.2 but also memory allocator from Python 2.5.1 since version 1.3.22

    It's only history

    Hmmm, I was sure I read it somewhere, do not remember where now.

    Maybe it took so long to port? I wouldn't be suprised actually.

    If not, why did they took old sources?
