Getting Slightly More Up To Date
The released version of jython is languishing at 2.5.2 (I suspect the jython version number might have some sort of relationship to the version of python supported?). This is likely the case because I was surprised when processing.py did not support "string".format(i). Out of interest I recompiled processing.py wth jython-2.7.2a2 and "string".format is supported. So going forward I intend to use only this or more recent version of jython, since regular python is moving toward version 3.4 (a step change ahead) seemingly some python 3.0 goodness will be back-ported to 2.7 so by the time jython-2.7 is released it will be somewhat more compatible.
