Yes, I am actually finding this to be consistent with my experience of
trying to come up to speed with 3.2. I have been relieved to find that
less has changed than the fear-mongering and bickering was leading me to
Another item that would be nice as an IDLE enhancement would be a menu
option that applies the fixers (either direction depending on version
2.7 <--> 3.2) right in the IDE. Entries that could not be fixed could be
flagged for manual update.
If there are good tools for app developers to use to make the transition
smoother then the development community won't get their ear chewed off
so ragged, I'm supposing.
