All changes are supposed to be in Misc/NEWS.  You should also be able to
use most of the test cases in Python itself, which are in Lib/test/

However, you should also read
Had you read the various docs about Python development, you would
certainly have figured out Lib/test/ on your own.

Because this is about the future of Jython, it's entirely appropriate
for discussion here -- python-dev is *NOT* just for CPython.  (It's
similar to questions about porting.)  As long as people ask questions of
the appropriate level, that is.

The way to build large Python applications is to componentize and
loosely-couple the hell out of everything.
