1 Week until First Draft Deadline

This is a short announcement to let potential contributors to The Python Papers know that the deadline for the first draft is now just one week away! If submissions could be in by Monday 2 July, that would be greatly appreciated. Late submissions risk not being included in our next issue, so even if the article is incomplete, it is important to let us know by Monday 2 July, and, if possible, please include the current state of your article.

Thanks,

HTML Version of The Python Papers, Volume 2, Issue 2 now available

Hi all,

The Python Papers, Volume 2, Issue 2 is now available at http://archive.pythonpapers.org/Volume2/Volume2Issue2/ThePythonPapersVolume2Issue2.html . We realise that the quality isn't as high as the PDF version, but this is also why we choose to make the PDF version our official version. We hope this additional format will help The Python Papers reach a greater audience, and that with time conversion tools will allow us to release increasingly high quality version of The Python Papers in multiple formats.

The conversion was achieved using odfpy, which is available from http://www.opendocumentfellowship.org/projects/odfpy.

If anyone is happy to help us improve the quality of our HTML format, please let us know -- we would love to hear from you!

Thanks,
-Tennessee

New Website for The Python Papers

The Python Papers now boasts a new website, which represents a significant step forward. The journal is now more accessible (1 click instead of 2), and a lot of other information is also closer to the surface.

We realise that it could be better, so if you have any thoughts or comments, or indeed would be happy to help us work on the site further, please contact us at editor@pythonpapers.org.

All the best,
-Tennessee
