> On behalf of the Python development team, I'm happy to announce the
> first alpha preview release of Python 3.2.
>
> Python 3.2 is a continuation of the efforts to improve and stabilize the
> Python 3.x line.  Since the final release of Python 2.7, the 2.x line
> will only receive bugfixes, and new features are developed for 3.x only.
>
> Since PEP 3003, the Moratorium on Language Changes, is in effect, there
> are no changes in Python's syntax and built-in types in Python 3.2.
> Development efforts concentrated on the standard library and support for
> porting code to Python 3.  Highlights are:
>
> * numerous improvements to the unittest module
> * PEP 3147, support for .pyc repository directories
> * an overhauled GIL implementation that reduces contention
> * many consistency and behavior fixes for numeric operations
> * countless fixes regarding string/unicode issues; among them full
>  support for a bytes environment (filenames, environment variables)
> * a sysconfig module to access configuration information
> * a pure-Python implementation of the datetime module
> * additions to the shutil module, among them archive file support
> * improvements to pdb, the Python debugger
>
> For an extensive list of changes in 3.2, see Misc/NEWS in the Python
> distribution.
