All the cool new language features, of course. I've only started
learning Python, so I haven't watched the "what's new" stuff for older
versions (and therefore can't pull anything off the top of my head), but
I am pretty excited for 3.3. The new exceptions, the LZMA module,
support for cp65001 in Windows...

CPython 3.2.2 | Windows NT 6.1.7601.17640
