I believe you misunderstood. If you follow what's new link above, you
will see a link to Misc/NEWS, but this one leads to
http://hg.python.org/cpython/file/default/Misc/NEWS where no
references to 3.2.1 are available.

There is nothing bad in linking to major release notes (i.e. What's
New). IIRC, Mozilla does that for their minor releases, but they
explicitly mention changes since last minor release.
