Very fine, but I have a few small annotations:

1.'linuxaudio' has been renamed to 'linuxaudiodev'

2.The following text:

  "_tkinter - support for 8.1,8.2,8.3 (no support for versions older than 8.0)."

  looks a bit misleading, since it is not explicit about Version 8.0.x
  I suggest the following wording:

  "_tkinter - supports Tcl/Tk from version 8.0 up to the current 8.3.  
   Support for versions older than 8.0 has been dropped."

3.'src/Tools/i18n/pygettext.py' by Barry should be mentioned.  This is
  a very useful utility.  I suggest to append the following text:

   "New utility pygettext.py -- Python equivalent of xgettext(1).
    A message text extraction tool used for internationalizing 
    applications written in Python"
