On behalf of the Python community, I'm happy to announce the  
availability of Python 2.6.3.  This is the latest production-ready  
version in the Python 2.6 series.  Somewhere near 100 bugs have been  
fixed since Python 2.6.2 was released in April 2009.  Please see the  
NEWS file for all the gory details.

Source tarballs, Windows installers and the Mac OS X disk image can be  
downloaded from the Python 2.6.3 page.

For more information on Python 2.6 in general, please see

Please report bugs for any Python version in the Python tracker.

Python 3.6.3 released

Might want to fix the title to 2.6.3, not 3.6.3...

Python 2.6.4 on the way

Note that 2.6.4 will be released very soon due to a brown-paper-bag bug in 2.6.3 (issue 7052).
