Publish Date: Mar. 9, 2007

Jeremy Jones summarizes the interesting developments in the world of Python in 2006 and offers some predictions for 2007. Also included is a 32-minute interview with Guido van Rossum discussing the upcoming release of Python 3000. 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. Finally, he offers his heartfelt thanks to the Python community for "a great ride."
