Python may now be used as an alternative interpreter for NEURON, either alone or in combination with hoc. This opens up to NEURON users the large and rapidly growing body of scientific software written in Python, and "catalyzes NEURON software development by offering users a modern programming tool that is recognized for its flexibility and power to create and maintain complex programs." And it does so without breaking anything, since all existing models written in hoc continue to work without alteration, and are also available from Python.
