A problem inside Bora repository (libbluetooth1 was removed suddenly) 
led us to a new Python for Maemo-r0.4-12 (OS2007) release.

This new release is available from:

What's it?
Python for Maemo (PyMaemo for short) main objective is to make possible 
to use Python programming language as the scripting and development 
language for Maemo Platform, providing a better alternative for fast 
prototyping and programming in Maemo environment besides the C 
programming language.

Python is for serious programming and to have fun. Python has a nice 
syntax, it's easy to learn and powerful enough for a vast range of 
applications, this is why we choose Python for Maemo.

What's changed?
  - #997 - python2.5-bluez not installable - depends upon
           libbluetooth1 (Luciano Wolf)
  - New pyrex (v0.9.5.1) available

What's planned?
Next major release is planned to have GPS and Address book support. In 
long term we plan to speed up Python using the Python Launcher, improve 
Pluthon (Eclipse plugin - http://pluthon.garage.maemo.org) and Easy Hildon
(Python-based API to ease the development of applications -

Thanks to everybody who helped making this release possible.
