    On behalf of the Python development team, I'm happy to announce the
    first alpha release of Python 3.3.0.

    This is a preview release, and its use is not recommended in
    production settings.

    Python 3.3 includes a range of improvements of the 3.x series, as well as easier
    porting between 2.x and 3.x. Major new features in the 3.3 release series are:

    * PEP 380, Syntax for Delegating to a Subgenerator ("yield from")
    * PEP 393, Flexible String Representation (doing away with the
    distinction between "wide" and "narrow" Unicode builds)
    * PEP 409, Suppressing Exception Context
    * PEP 3151, Reworking the OS and IO exception hierarchy
    * The new "packaging" module, building upon the "distribute" and
    "distutils2" projects and deprecating "distutils"
    * The new "lzma" module with LZMA/XZ support
    * PEP 3155, Qualified name for classes and functions
    * PEP 414, explicit Unicode literals to help with porting
    * The new "faulthandler" module that helps diagnosing crashes
    * Wrappers for many more POSIX functions in the "os" and "signal"
    modules, as well as other useful functions such as "sendfile()"

    For a more extensive list of changes in 3.3.0, see

    Enjoy!
