Python 2.7.1 and Python 3.1.3
[Development] Posted Nov 29, 2010 19:28 UTC (Mon) by ris
The Python development team has released Python
2.7.1 and Python 3.1.3.
The 2.7 series "includes many features that were first released in
Python 3.1. The faster io module, the new nested with statement syntax,
improved float repr, set literals, dictionary views, and the memoryview
object have been backported from 3.1. Other features include an ordered
dictionary implementation, unittests improvements, a new sysconfig module,
auto-numbering of fields in the str/unicode format method, and support for
ttk Tile in Tkinter."
The 3.1 series "focuses on the stabilization and optimization
of the features and changes that Python 3.0 introduced. For example, the
new I/O system has been rewritten in C for speed. File system APIs that
use unicode strings now handle paths with undecodable bytes in them. Other
features include an ordered dictionary implementation, a condensed syntax
for nested with statements, and support for ttk Tile in Tkinter."
