Unlike languages you pay for, Python has on real motivation to "obsolete" old 
versions of Python (e.g. to force you to pay of an upgrade).  You can still get 
version 1.5.2 of Python and it is MANY years old and most could consider quite 
obsolete.  I just would not worry about it and stick with 2.5/2.6 for 
development and begin looking at Python 3.0 so I can learn what's new and exciting.
