Whatâ€™s New In Python 3.0
This article explains the new features in Python 3.0, compared to 2.6. Python 3.0, also known as Ã¢â¬ÅPython 3000Ã¢â¬Â or Ã¢â¬ÅPy3KÃ¢â¬Â, is the first ever intentionally backwards incompatible Python release. There are more changes than in a typical release, and more that are important for all Python users. Nevertheless, after digesting the changes, youÃ¢â¬â¢ll find that Python really hasnÃ¢â¬â¢t changed all that much Ã¢â¬â by and large, weÃ¢â¬â¢re mostly fixing well-known annoyances and warts, and removing a lot of old cruft.
