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 include:
Python 3.4 is now in "feature freeze", meaning that no new features will be added. The final release is projected for mid-March 2014.

Once I can update the new web site, Python 3.4.0rc2 will be available here:
(I'm not sure what the final URL will be, but you'll see it listed on that page.)
Please consider trying Python 3.4.0rc2 with your code and reporting any new issues you notice to:
