[New-bugs-announce] [issue4798] Update deprecation of 'new' module in PEP 4.

Vikram U Shenoy report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Vikram U Shenoy <vikram.u.shenoy at gmail.com>:

Attached are two patches:

* Update PEP 4 about 'new' module which is deprecated since python 2.6
in favour of using types module.

* Update documentation for 'new' module.

Not sure about the exact date of proposal for deprecating 'new' module,
but closest that I was able to find was this python-dev mail thread
after it had been removed from py3k branch:
