1 aliz 1.1 HISTORY OF THE SOFTWARE
2     =======================
3    
4     Python was created in the early 1990s by Guido van Rossum at Stichting
5     Mathematisch Centrum (CWI) in the Netherlands as a successor of a
6     language called ABC. Guido is Python's principal author, although it
7     includes many contributions from others. The last version released
8     from CWI was Python 1.2. In 1995, Guido continued his work on Python
9     at the Corporation for National Research Initiatives (CNRI) in Reston,
10     Virginia where he released several versions of the software. Python
11     1.6 was the last of the versions released by CNRI. In 2000, Guido and
12     the Python core developement team moved to BeOpen.com to form the
13     BeOpen PythonLabs team (www.pythonlabs.com). Python 2.0 is the first
14     release from PythonLabs. Thanks to the many outside volunteers who
15     have worked under Guido's direction to make this release possible.
