Yes, I could be misinformed - I haven't kept up because:
I was a huge python fan until a few years ago when I started making bigger and bigger apps in it, and threading them more and more. And I was not getting the performance gain from multi-core machines that I would get with other languages.
Quick googling seems to indicate it's still a known issue with the fix being "use processes". Perhaps viable, but not for me. Threads can be a mess, but there are some apps that fit the thread model pretty well.
I still use python for little scripts, but, at that point, the version rarely matters.
