Python 2.3 release candidate 1

Python 2.3 release candidate 1 was released on Friday.

I've been running beta 2 for a while, and it's good.

There may have to be another release candidate, since 2.3 currently doesn't work on Cygwin. But the Python dev team are hoping that it's a Cygwin bug rather than a Python bug, and that release candidate 1 will be the only one.

In any case, there is a pretty hard deadline on 2.3 final - it needs to be out by the 31st if it's to make it into the next OS X release.

Update: Looks like there will be a release candidate 2.
