    On behalf of the Python development team, I'm happy to announce the
    fourth and (this time really) final alpha preview release of Python 3.2.

    Python 3.2 is a continuation of the efforts to improve and stabilize the
    Python 3.x line. Since the final release of Python 2.7, the 2.x line
    will only receive bugfixes, and new features are developed for 3.x only.

    Since PEP 3003, the Moratorium on Language Changes, is in effect, there
    are no changes in Python's syntax and built-in types in Python 3.2.
    Development efforts concentrated on the standard library and support for
    porting code to Python 3. Highlights are:

    * numerous improvements to the unittest module
    * PEP 3147, support for .pyc repository directories
    * PEP 3149, support for version tagged dynamic libraries
    * an overhauled GIL implementation that reduces contention
    * many consistency and behavior fixes for numeric operations
    * countless fixes regarding string/unicode issues; among them full
    support for a bytes environment (filenames, environment variables)
    * a sysconfig module to access configuration information
    * a pure-Python implementation of the datetime module
    * additions to the shutil module, among them archive file support
    * improvements to pdb, the Python debugger

    For an extensive list of changes in 3.2, see Misc/NEWS in the Python
    distribution.

    To download Python 3.2 visit:

    3.2 documentation can be found at:

    Please consider trying Python 3.2 with your code and reporting any bugs
    you may notice to:

    Enjoy!
