March 2008 -- Issue #16
March has been a great month for the Jython programming language! There has been a lot of activity on the blog-lines and much anticipation for the future of the language due to the recent hirings of Python programmer Ted Leung and Jython's own Frank Wierzbicki. We all wish them the best and hope that the language will flourish with this renewed awareness and Sun's devotion. This is a good day for Jython and Python programmers indeed!
The company today is announcing the hiring of Ted Leung, long-time Python developer at the Open Source Applications Foundation, and Frank Wierzbicki, lead implementer of the Jython project, which enables Python to run on the Java virtual machine, Sun said.
