Release Date: March 2, 2014
Python 3.3.5 includes fixes for these important issues:
- a 3.3.4 regression in zipimport (see http://bugs.python.org/issue20621)
- a 3.3.4 regression executing scripts with a coding declared and Windows newlines (see http://bugs.python.org/issue20731)
- potential DOS using compression codecs in bytes.decode() (see http://bugs.python.org/issue19619 and http://bugs.python.org/issue20404)
