Guido and I had a brief discussion about this. IIRC, he was thinking
alpha around March and release around summer. I think this is
aggressive with all the things still to do. We really need to get the
ssize_t branch integrated.
There are a bunch of PEPs that have been accepted (or close), but not
implemented. I think these include (please correct me, so we can get
a good list):
SA 308 Conditional Expressions
SA 328 Imports: Multi-Line and Absolute/Relative
SA 342 Coroutines via Enhanced Generators
S 343 The "with" Statement
S 353 Using ssize_t as the index type
This one should be marked as final I believe:
SA 341 Unifying try-except and try-finally
