Does anyone know why the default OS X Python version is so old? I know there are separate releases which work very well but I have been wondering why Apple haven't bundled updates as they have done with Java? (I sort of understand the Java 5/6 issue and there is a developer preview but we are now TWO major releases down the road with python) Are they hidden on the system or on ADC somewhere? Actually, I could ask the same thing about PHP, default version 4.x, IIRC (not that I use PHP, so might be wrong on this). I just have this niggling feeling that Apple are gradually ignoring some of the features that made them appear developer friendly in the first place (especially now as I see they are bundling Ruby On Rails, the latest cool kid on the block, with Leopard). Any thoughts?
