Hello Peter, We try to support python 2.6 as well, so I consider this a bug I will fix right away.
The error occurs when links in a page are index. So probably you end up with a valid index for the notebook structure, but without an index of links. So in the export e.g. listing backlinks in the template probably will fail. Otherwise you should be fine.
