I'm pleased to announce the release of the 3rd Edition of
the book Learning Python.

This new edition has been updated to cover Python 2.5, and
includes numerous pointers for migrating to Python 3.0 in the
future.  Among other things, this edition has been augmented
with material on function decorators, context managers, the
new relative import syntax, generator expressions, and more.

In addition, this edition has been enhanced to be even more
of a self-paced learning resource, with new end-of-chapter
quizzes, new introductory chapters on types and syntax, and
new materials derived from recent Python training sessions.

For more details, see O'Reilly's web page:

O'Reilly also has a press release about the book here:
