  1. QOTW: "To the pure, everything, properly described, is pure ;-)" - Bengt
    Richter


    The final version of Python 3.0 was released last Wednesday, jointly
    with 2.6.1 - congratulations!

    Implementing "lazy" properties:

    Overriding __special__ methods at the instance level:

    Guidelines for designing a project's structure on disk:
    http://groups.google.com/group/comp.lang.python/t/e8dd7109df5f61b2/

    A detective story: a hard-to-find bug regarding how 3.0 reads
    UTF16-encoded files:
    http://groups.google.com/group/comp.lang.python/t/ae1bc6660a6b2c5f/

    a few differences between 2.5 and 3.0:
    http://groups.google.com/group/comp.lang.python/t/5c6734bc5181af6a/

    Learning Python for Perl programmers:
    http://groups.google.com/group/comp.lang.python/t/d2abcb3e75c5f041/

    An alternative syntax for defining methods (moving self out of the
    argument list):
    http://groups.google.com/group/comp.lang.python/t/5457b8649040f7ea/

    "as" is now a keyword (2.6); that breaks some existing code, and angers
    several people:
    http://groups.google.com/group/comp.lang.python/t/e9ffe83fcf4b0af0/

    3.0 file read/write is slow and not as optimized as 2.x:
    http://groups.google.com/group/comp.lang.python/t/6c4d3a2d678c1eba/
    http://groups.google.com/group/comp.lang.python/t/9046eee09137c657/
