What's new in Python-2.6:
The major theme of Python 2.6 is preparing the migration path to
Python 3.0, a major redesign of the language. Whenever possible,
Python 2.6 incorporates new features and syntax from 3.0 while
remaining compatible with existing code by not removing older
features or syntax. When it tries to do what it can, adding
compatibility functions in a future_builtins module and a -3 switch
to warn about usages that will become unsupported in 3.0.
Some significant new packages have been added to the standard
library, such as the multiprocessing and json modules, but there
Python 2.6 also sees a number of improvements and bugfixes throughout
the source. A search through the change logs finds there were 259
patches applied and 612 bugs fixed between Python 2.5 and 2.6. Both
figures are likely to be underestimates.
