We are pleased to announce the release of Python 3.0 (final), a new production-ready release, on December 3rd, 2008.
Python 3.0 (a.k.a. “Python 3000” or “Py3k”) is a new version of the language that is incompatible with the 2.x line of releases. The language is mostly the same, but many details, especially how built-in objects like dictionaries and strings work, have changed considerably, and a lot of deprecated features have finally been removed. Also, the standard library has been reorganized in a few prominent places.
We are happy for Python 3.0 roll out, although we are not confortable with it, because it is incompatible with the previous python version.
It is too early to be sure, but we hope Python 3.0 will help the growth of the python community.
