I ran into this, too (and I did read the file that was linked to).  I
had expected to find the "What's New" page describing what was new in
Python 2.6, and I would have expected a "Release Notes" link to point to
the NEWS.txt page.  That's how things were in the past, anyway:


It's a minor thing, but I did have to go hunt down the What's New file.
