It's been several months since the last official Python(x, y) release. Version 188.8.131.52 was originally planned for December 2011 but was (and still is) delayed. I hope it will be done by the end of February. This delay can be attributed to the sheer amount of package updates combined with a chronic lack of time.
The good news is that we're up to date with almost all packages - including some new ones. Please download and test the update packages - any feedback will be most welcome.
Thank you all for your patience and support!
