I would like to announce that two articles explaining in detail the 
working of new-style (v2.2 and up) objects have been released as final 

1. Python Types and Objects

Explains different Python new-style objects, starting with <type 'type'> 
and <type 'object'>, and going all the way to user defined classes and 
instances. The system described is sometimes called the Python type 
system, or the object model.

2. Python Attributes and Methods

Explains the mechanics of attribute access, how functions become 
methods, descriptors, properties, MRO and the like for new-style Python 

Any and all feedback is appreciated, and can be sent to
