It _is_ a little old, so you'd probably still have a few new things to
learn:

    http://mboedick.org/miscellany/python_release_history.php

But the "What's New in Python?" series of documents provide a clear and
concise mechanism for reading up on the new stuff.

    What's New in Python 2.0, 2.1, 2.2, 2.3:

    What's New in Python 2.4 (still in development):

Cheers,
