PyCon 2007 Wrapup (O'ReillyNet)

Jeremy Jones reports on PyCon 2007. "I recently attended PyCon 2007. It's interesting to look back on the previous year when trying to figure out where to focus my attention in the next year. In organizing my thoughts, I hope to give you some useful information on what's coming. I also had the pleasure of sitting down with Guido van Rossum, Python's creator and benevolent dictator for life. This is the first time that backward compatibility is an issue, and Guido addresses what you need to do to prepare, discusses the strengths and weaknesses of the new conversion tool, and points out the benefits of several new language features (for example, full support for Unicode strings). He also discusses the controversy and misunderstanding some of these changes have caused in the Python community, and how they're being resolved."

Huh, not even a brief mention of the PyPy Python implementation?
