+What's New Since 3.0a1
+----------------------
+
+Undoubtedly the biggest change is in the bytes type: 'bytes' is now
+immutable, and there is a new mutable bytes type 'bytearray'.  These
+two types are interoperable in every way.  For more info on this
+issue, read PEP 3137.
+
+For a more detailed change log, read Misc/NEWS (though this file, too,
+is incomplete, and also doesn't list anything merged in from the 2.6
+release under development).
