*Release date: 2011-05-29*

- Issue #9670: Increase the default stack size for secondary threads on
  Mac OS X and FreeBSD to reduce the chances of a crash instead of a
  "maximum recursion depth" RuntimeError exception.
  (patch by Ronald Oussoren)

- Correct lookup of __dir__ on objects. This allows old-style classes to have
  __dir__. It also causes errors besides AttributeError found on lookup to be

- Issue #1195: Fix input() if it is interrupted by CTRL+d and then CTRL+c,
  clear the end-of-file indicator after CTRL+d.

- Issue #8651: PyArg_Parse*() functions raise an OverflowError if the file
  doesn't have PY_SSIZE_T_CLEAN define and the size doesn't fit in an int
  (length bigger than 2^31-1 bytes).

- Issue #8651: Fix "z#" format of PyArg_Parse*() function: the size was not
  written if PY_SSIZE_T_CLEAN is defined.

- Issue #9756: When calling a method descriptor or a slot wrapper descriptor,
  the check of the object type doesn't read the __class__ attribute anymore.
  Fix a crash if a class override its __class__ attribute (e.g. a proxy of the
  str type). Patch written by Andreas Stührk.

  chars (e.g. u"\U00012345"[0]).

- Issue #11650: PyOS_StdioReadline() retries fgets() if it was interrupted
  (EINTR), for example if the program is stopped with CTRL+z on Mac OS X. Patch
  written by Charles-Francois Natali.

  Previously, there were some corner cases where a long was returned even
  though the result was within the range of an int.

  there are many tags (e.g. when using mq).  Patch by Nadeem Vawda.
