Python Papers second issue now available!

G'day Pythonistas! Welcome to Issue Two of The Python Papers. It has been an exciting time and we are pleased to have reached this milestone. I'd like to say a big hello to all the people who have provided their input in making this a reality: the python-advocacy list, comp.lang.python, the Python User Groups that responded to the call to participate and also many individuals. This is also the first issue where we have attempted to publish both a PDF and an HTML edition.

Get it here!

Please note the new volume number commences with the calendar year, so the volume number has increased while the issue number is the same as the last issue.

The choice of format was clearly an issue for many people on both sides. Going forward, we will continue to use PDF as our primary 'authorative' version for the purposes of page numbering and referencing, however the HTML edition will be made public in a day or two after further editing to cope with conversion effects.
