Python Software Foundation Matching Donations this Month

We're extremely excited to announce that for the month of September, any amount
you donate to PyPy will be match (up to $10,000) by the Python Software
Foundation
.

This includes any of our ongoing fundraisers: NumPyPy, STM, Python3, or our
general fundraising.

Here are some of the things your previous donations have helped accomplish:

  • Getting PyPy3 completed (currently 3.2, with 3.3 work underway)
  • New research and production engineering on STM for PyPy
  • Lots of progress on NumPy for PyPy
  • Significant performance improvements

You can see a preview of what's coming in our next 2.4 release in the draft
release notes
.

Thank you to all the individuals and companies which have donated so far.

So please, donate today: http://pypy.org/

(Please be aware that the donation progress bars are not live updating, so
don't be afraid if your donation doesn't show up immediately).

I think you should be careful about your claims for numpy. It's a great idea and I am sure lots of people would be very interested in anything you do but I for one see very little progress on it.

Consider me another request for a Bitcoin address. I'm in for a few millibits if you provide one.

Armin Rigo said...

Sorry for the bitcoin requests... setting up a new payment system just for a few millibits is not worth it at all.
