First released in 2005, it featured a relatively small set of modules and functions. Version 1.2, the last non-opensource release and the second version of PyS60, brought many improvements and was made available on 21 October 2005 on Forum Nokia.

After becoming open source, PyS60 had the advantage of a strong and dedicated community that could actively contribute to improving it. The milestone release was Version 1.3.11.

The final version to support[3] S60 2nd Edition platform, 1.4.5, was released on 3 December 2008. On 24 December 2008, a developer version, 1.9.0, was released. It featured several improvements, the main of which was a new core based on Python 2.5.1. The latest final version, 2.0.0, was released on 11 February 2010. Its core is based on Python 2.5.4.[2]
