On behalf of the Python development team, I'm pleased to announce the third alpha release of Python 3.4.
This is a preview release, and its use is not recommended for production settings.
Python 3.4 includes a range of improvements of the 3.x series, including hundreds of small improvements and bug fixes. Major new features and changes in the 3.4 release series so far include:
* PEP 435, a standardized "enum" module * PEP 442, improved semantics for object finalization * PEP 443, adding single-dispatch generic functions to the standard library * PEP 445, a new C API for implementing custom memory allocators * PEP 446, changing file descriptors to not be inherited by default in subprocesses
