[RELEASED] Python 2.6.8, 2.7.3, 3.1.5, and 3.2.3

http://mail.python.org/pipermail/python-dev/2012-April/118676.html

We're bursting with enthusiasm to announce the immediate availability of Python2.6.8, 2.7.3, 3.1.5, and 3.2.3. These releases included several security fixes.

Note: Virtualenvs created with older releases in the 2.6, 2.7, 3.1, or 3.2series may not work with these bugfix releases. Specifically, the os module may not appear to have a urandom function. This is a virtualenv bug, which can be solved by recreating the broken virtualenvs with the newer Python versions.

The main impetus for these releases is fixing a security issue in Python's hashbased types, dict and set, as described below. Python 2.7.3 and 3.2.3 include the security patch and the normal set of bug fixes. Since Python 2.6 and 3.1 are maintained only for security issues, 2.6.8 and 3.1.5 contain only various security patches.
