Jython 2.7.2 beta (November 2019)

A beta release is now available for Jython 2.7.2 at Maven Central. It is tested against Java 8 and Java 11. This has been a long time in the making, as there were quite a few bugs known that we deemed it necessary to fix.

Notable new features include:

Numerous instances are corrected where we mis-handled the encoding of file, user and host names, which has been a frequent problem for users where ASCII won’t do. Many more fixed bugs are listed in NEWS.

Jython 2.7.0 Final Released (May 2015)

Please see the NEWS file for detailed release notes.

On behalf of the Jython development team, I’m pleased to announce that the final release of Jython 2.7.0 is available! It’s been a long road to get to 2.7, and it’s finally here! I’d like to thank Amobee for sponsoring my work on Jython. I’d also like to thank the many contributors to Jython, including - but not limited to - bug reports, patches, pull requests, documentation changes, support emails, and fantastic conversation on Freenode at #jython.

Along with language and runtime compatibility with CPython 2.7.0, Jython 2.7 provides substantial support of the Python ecosystem. This includes built-in support of pip/setuptools (you can use with bin/pip) and a native launcher for Windows (bin/jython.exe), with the implication that you can finally install Jython scripts on Windows.

Jim Baker presented a talk at PyCon 2015 about Jython 2.7, including demos of new features.
