A new version of expat has been released. 2.2.1 addressed CVE-2015-1283.

Christian: Is that CVE the same crash as reported by mail by Gustavo Grieco?

No, the other problem is CVE-2016-0718. We are still looking into the matter.

Any progress on this?  It is still flagged as a Release Blocker and releases are approaching.

Another critical bug fix will be released next Tuesday.

Was this critical bug fix released on May 17th as promised?

I will not hold up 3.5.2 for this.  3.5.2 has waited long enough.

There is another security release for expat planned, but we can skip it for now. I'll provide a patch for Python 2 and 3 with 2.1.1 by tomorrow.

Per, version 2.1.1 fixes CVE-2015-1283, not 2.2.1 as mentioned in a comment.

Christian: I don't see any checkins on this issue, and I tag 3.4.4 rc1 and 3.5.2 rc1 in about twelve hours.  As I mentioned to you in person at the PyCon 2016 sprints, I'm not holding up either of these releases for the expat update.  If this is still open when it's time for me to tag those releases, I'll flip this to "deferred blocker".
