I have just released version 0.9.1 of Shed Skin, a restricted-Python (2.4-2.6) to C++ compiler. This is a maintenance release, so no new major features were added. Most interesting perhaps are optimizations for itertools.product and str.join. Other than that, it's mostly bugfixes and a new (hq2x image scaling) example. Please see the release notes for more details.
In the meantime, Paul Boddie has succeeded in getting Shed Skin 0.9 accepted into the Debian repositories, which is awesome for me personally.
