Yes, the title is related to the news that were all over Planet Python yesterday, that Sun hired two prominent pythonistas (Ted Leung and Frank Wierzbicki) to work on Jython. Great news indeed. Jython seemed to lose steam and momentum as compared to other dynamic JVM languages (JRuby mainly), so it's very good to see that Sun is putting its weight behind it. Congrats to Ted and Frank.
Also, in other news, Greg Wilson just announced on his blog that he signed a contract with the Pragmatic Programmers to co-author a textbook for CS 101-type classes using Python as the programming language. Can't wait to see it in print!
