For a start, and maybe sufficiency, look at the changes made
in the intervening releases:

For example, the section "What's new in release 1.6?" at

... and "What's New in Python 2.0?" at or, even better,
look at Andrew Kuchling's detailed descriptions
for 2.0 through 2.2 at
under the rubrik "What's New in Python".
