Terry J. Reedy added the comment:

The preceding sentence "There are two new valid (semantic) forms for the raise statement" is obsolete also as there is no other form (other than 'raise', which should not be in the tutorial previously). To rewrite this section for 3.x would require looking at what has already been said about exceptions and raise. It seems to have been written for ancient python where raise 'somestring' was the norm.
